The parents of a US Marine killed in the 2021 Kabul attack want to see General Mark Milley resign, claiming that the US did not hold command accountable for the loss of several US Servicemen.

Steve Nikoui, the father of Marine Kareem Nikoui, spoke with “Fox & Friends” host Rachel Campos-Duffy, stating that he did not feel enough was done in the aftermath of the infamous 2021 Kabul suicide bomber attack.

“I’d like to see General Milley resign,” Nikoui said. “He should be held responsible for this. He’s the Joint Chiefs of Staff [chairman].”

Lance Corporal Nikoui’s mother, Shana Chappell, was equally incensed, stating that her son and twelve others died due to decisions made by officials.

“I’m still waiting for them to be held accountable for it. For some reason, they want to put the blame on everyone but themselves, but it is actually their fault all of this happened,” Chappell stated. “The 13 that are dead, that is their fault.”

According to the New York Post, the family expressed their disgust in having to know their son died the way he did.

“I’m frustrated. We were able to keep our son alive, more importantly, Shana for the last 20 years,” Nikoui said. “Then he goes and joins the military to serve our country and our country can’t protect him the way that he needs to be protected.”

The family went on to state that they never received the autopsy report, and “have reasons to believe that our son was shot.”
