Connecticut lawmakers honor 13 US service members who died in Kabul airport attack

Connecticut lawmakers, like Gov. Ned Lamont and Sen. Chris Murphy, stated that the 13 U.S. service members who died in Thursday's attack outside the Kabul airport sacrificed their lives to protect innocent lives.
Rep. Jim Himes say he does not believe the Aug. 31 deadline to get U.S. troops out of Afghanistan is feasible due to the amount of people that still needed to be evacuated. He says the recent attacks exposed a weakness in the government's procedures.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal tells News 12 he wants to keep U.S. troops and personnel in Afghanistan as long as necessary to evacuate all American citizens and Afghan allies.
News 12's Shosh Bedrosian also talks to Fairfield resident Alex Plitsas, who served in Afghanistan in 2012. He is now working to get American citizens and allies evacuated through his connections and says the U.S. government miscalculated the amount of people wanting to leave.
