After warnings from the State Department yesterday, two explosions were heard today in Afghanistan at the airport and at the Baron Hotel where many Americans were staying.
One Afghan translator for the U.S. Marine Corps spoke with Fox News to tell his first-hand story of what he witnessed immediately after a suicide bomb attack at the Kabul airport. He was trying to get out of Afghanistan, but the bomb exploded, and he is taking injured people to the hospital.
His voice breaks when he says a 5-year-old girl died in his hands. Heartbreaking…

Speculation of who did this points to ISIS. There is no confirmation yet. The Pentagon is saying this was a coordinated attack at the airport and hotel Baron in Kabul.

“Joe Biden is letting this happen.” – Congressman Greg Steube, a veteran, spoke out to ask why Biden is letting this happen.
We have American citizens trapped behind enemy lines with suicide bombers and terrorists, but this Administration is still refusing to send in our service members.
This American blood is on Joe Biden's hands.

There are three Marine injuries and at least 13 people injured, but there could be more.
