One of Biden’s handlers released a statement (does anyone believe he wrote the statement?) warning about another terrorist attack within 24-36 hours in Afghanistan. This comes just two days after a horrific terrorist attack that killed 13 American service members. ISIS-K took responsibility, but the Biden regime is guilty of failing in its duty to complete its mission successfully. This is a terrible military failure.
The statement began by bragging about the lame drone strike that killed two low-level ISIS-K members who weren’t even on the “kill list”…
This morning, I met with my national security team in Washington and my commanders in the field. We discussed the strike that U.S. forces took last night against the terrorist group ISIS-K in Afghanistan. I said we would go after the group responsible for the attack on our troops and innocent civilians in Kabul, and we have. This strike was not the last. We will continue to hunt down any person involved in that heinous attack and make them pay. Whenever anyone seeks to harm the United States or attack our troops, we will respond. That will never be in doubt. I thanked General McKenzie for his leadership of that mission and for his commitment to the safety of our troops in Afghanistan.
The statement then announced that it is highly likely there will be another terror attack soon:
The situation on the ground continues to be extremely dangerous, and the threat of terrorist attacks on the airport remains high. Our commanders informed me that an attack is highly likely in the next 24-36 hours. I directed them to take every possible measure to prioritize force protection and ensured that they have all the authorities, resources, and plans to protect our men and women on the ground. They assured me that they did and that they could take these measures while completing the mission and safely retrograding our personnel.
The most outrageous part of the statement is that the Biden regime is lying about bringing people out. It is being reported that the window for escape is almost entirely closed. The people left will need to find another way out and will need to go into hiding until they escape:
Despite the treacherous situation in Kabul, we are continuing to evacuate civilians. Yesterday, we brought out another 6,800 people, including hundreds of Americans. And today, we discussed the ongoing preparations to help people continue to leave Afghanistan after our military departs.
The conclusion of the statement was to try and say these failed leaders cared about the soldiers. These soldiers were sitting ducks because of the inept plan and military failure:
The 13 service members that we lost were heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our highest American ideals and while saving the lives of others. Their bravery and selflessness has enabled more than 117,000 people at risk to reach safety thus far. May God protect our troops and all those standing watch in these dangerous days.
