Honoring 9/11 with call for Afghan Adjustment Act

WASHINGTON — Human Rights First’s President and CEO Michael Breen, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, marked the anniversary of 9/11 with the following statement:  

“Human Rights First commemorates the memories of the Americans killed and honors those otherwise affected by the heinous attacks of 9/11 with a call to action. As someone who served in Afghanistan and now leads this human rights organization, I believe we should mark this solemn anniversary by fulfilling this country’s unfinished commitment to those impacted by the war in Afghanistan that resulted from the attacks. The U.S. government must recommit itself to protecting the Afghans who served shoulder to shoulder with U.S. servicemembers and healing the moral injury the war has inflicted on our veterans. One way Congress should honor 9/11 and the war that followed is by passing the Afghan Adjustment Act.”
