Now multiple reports have confirmed that the death toll has risen to 40 people including 11 United States Marines and a Navy Medic.

Press Secretary for the Pentagon, John Kirby, released the following statement:

"We can confirm that a number of U.S. service members were killed in today’s complex attack at Kabul airport.  A number of others are being treated for wounds. We also know that a number of Afghans fell victim to this heinous attack. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones and teammates of all those killed and injured."

The pentagon is labeling this as a complex attack after the Taliban claimed they had no part in the bombing. The crew involved was from a terrorist group known as ISIS-K.

The Biden administration is being critiqued by a number of people online for their lack of communication during these events.

It is unclear when the White House will hold a press briefing.

This is on joe biden's head and anyone who voted for him. The dems should be very proud. 

Obummer had 8 long years to get us out is really bad. I'd say everyone in that white house is at fault. Stop pointing fingers it's seriously pathetic.

Umm.. why don’t we look at who is profiting from the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East, wherever they may be? It ain’t no D vs R, I can assure you of that. 

Follow the money people  





Hmmm...do y’all think this is the first president that’s been instructed? They have a narrative and an agenda to adhere to. Biden slipped up about his puppeteers.
