UPDATE: At Least 11 Marines Killed During Kabul Suicide Bombings

 

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN – New reports claim that at least 12 U.S. service members were killed in this morning's two suicide bombing near the Kabul airport.

As previously reported, on Aug. 26, one suicide bombing took place at the Kabul airport and the other at a hotel. For the original report see: WARNING GRAPHIC VIDEO: 13 Dead, Multiple Injured Following Suicide Bombings in Kabul

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.

Sickening! I’ll repeat what I said earlier…what a sorry excuse for a leader the worst thing is the whole world knows it!

This is an act of war! Maybe if our “woke” dept. of defense (including our incompetent commander-in-chief) wasn’t so infatuated with teaching CRT and mandating vaccinations for a virus that 99% of people survive, then they would be more focused on their MISSION.

Please explain what you think "CRT" is.

"This is an act of war! "

We have been at war with these people since republican president Bush sent us over there.

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.

I agree 100%, but I can't stand idly by and let you guys say this was all Bidens fault, it has been 4 presidents that take the blame for it in some way. Bush started it, Obama kept it going, Trump made a bad deal that Biden implemented poorly. But the fact is that we are getting out, which is the right thing to do.

This is actually an intelligent comment. An acknowledgment that this is not a partisan issue. Please, realize that most issues are not partisan and that they are agendas that supersede the portrayed left-right paradigm. 

Not intelligent just more excuses…something democrats have a lot of lately ;)

The “right thing to do” would have been to pull all Americans and Afghani support personal out of Afghanistan BEFORE pulling security forces out! 

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. 
 

 

I’m sick of excuses! Up until this literally blew up in our faces, Biden and his ENABLERS were thumbing their nose at the whole thing.

And by “enablers” I don’t just mean those instructing Biden, I include every single one the idiots who voted for him…including you if that happens to be the case ;)

I also don’t buy the “sympathy card” Biden always tries to play by trotting his dead son out and portraying him as some sort of “war hero”. Biden is no different than anyone else everyone has lost a loved one at some point in their life! His son’s death has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the matter at hand all it is is EMPTY WORDS.

"I also don’t buy the “sympathy card” Biden always tries to play by trotting his dead son out and portraying him as some sort of “war hero”."

Well, that statement right there proves you don't care about American soldiers, you are blatantly saying it. Republicans are so hateful of their fellow Americans.

What is is you guys always say? When you have to resort to insults you have already lost? Yeah.

Anyway I’m glad you think this is all “comical” because I don’t think it’s funny at all! There needs to be a SERIOUS investigation on the failures by the current administration, and the ones responsible held accountable!

Democrats have even started their own investigations, because unlike republicans they hold their own accountable.

IMO your “follow the money” remark is a simplistic view. Yes the  military industrial complex is a real thing, but so is radical Islamic terrorism…which in case you forgot and whether or not you agree with the decision to go into Afghanistan, was the reason we went there in the first place.

Unfortunately, because of the incompetent actions of the current administration, we’re left with only two options. Either abandon those stranded there which would be a NIGHTMARE, or take up the fight which I don’t think Biden has the stomach for!

Biden was forced to either abide by trumps plan/deal and get us out, or break it and risk major retaliation. Trump set this deal up and even bragged about Biden not being able to stop it.

Not to mention trumps website and the RNC's website had praised trumps deal, them deleted it,

Speaking of praise, here is trump praising the taliban, enemies of the US,

Citibank and JPMorgan are the top two owners of the New York Federal Reserve, owning about 75% of shares. The NY Fed is the most influential of the 12 Fed banks, controlling the US economy, which, in turn, controls the world economy. The largest stakeholders in Citigroup are BlackRock and Vanguard group. 

 

Vanguard and BlackRock are the top two owners of Time Warner, Comcast, Disney and News Corp, four of the six media companies that control 90% of the U.S. media. When combined with State Street, the three together own 90% of the S&P 500. 

 

Guess what? Vanguard is the largest shareholder of BlackRock. The ownership of these institutional investors is a big circle, with the larger ones holding stake in the smaller and vice versa. When following  the circles of ownership, it can even be seen that Coke and Pepsi are not competing brands, as minor as it sounds. 

 

So who are shareholders (owners) of Vanguard? Names such as Rothschild, Bush, du Pont, Morgans, Rockefeller are identified as such. 

 

Wait for it... Wait for it...Who are the top two shareholders in GlaxoSmithKline? Haha, yep, BlackRock is top with Vanguard coming in second. Oh yeah and Pfizer, you know the company that has the now FDA approved vaccine. Guess who are the top owners.... Vanguard #1 BlackRock #2. 

 

Now, I know about the military industrial complex that you referenced and I understand about religious extremism. You  wrongly blew off my “follow the money” comment as simplistic. Touching on military defense contractor... Lockheed Martin is one of the largest contractors for the US government. Care to take a guess as to who the top shareholders are? The top shareholders of Lockheed Martin are Marillyn Hewson, Daniel Akerson, Scott Greene, STATE STREET Corp., VANGUARD GROUP Inc., and BLACKROCK Inc.

 

As can be see it is the bankers, aka the rich elite, that control economies, media and pharmaceutical companies and yes, weapons manufacturers. And y’all think this is a simple D vs R. That is why it is comical. Y’all have been blinded to pick a side and fight amongst yourselves over the letter behind a puppet’s name!! Now I can go back and provide links to all the info I have given. I know Me Someone would demand it, but he’s not replying to me since I am a religious wack job and pin the world’s problems on something other than Republicans. Seriously though, look into some of this for yourself. 

Thanks for the info I appreciate it! I do admit I get a little spun up sometimes ;)

You’re welcome. There is so much more that I could get into with it. Just start researching and you’ll see too that we are ALL being played in so many aspects of our lives. 

Hey BLANCO9, this is interesting:
 

The connections between BlackRock and the current administration, especially, are deep.

The Chairman of the BlackRock Investment Institute is Tom Donilon, President Obama’s former National Security Advisor (before Susan Rice), and a key advisor to Joe Biden throughout his career in politics.

Donilon has been in/around government for 35+ years. Before joining the Obama administration Donilon was a registered lobbyist from 1999 through 2005 for O’Melvney & Myers. Tom’s sole client was Fannie Mae. 

Tom Donilon’s brother, Mike Donilon is a Senior Advisor to Joe Biden. Donilon guides the focus of spending, budgets, regulation and white house policy.

Tom Donilon’s wife, Catherine Russell, is the White House Personnel Director

Tom Donilon’s daughter, Sarah Donilon, who graduated college in 2019, now works on the White House National Security Council
