Two armed men were shot and killed by U.S. Troops as gunfire erupted on Monday at Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. The country has fallen and Taliban terrorists are in charge. Antony Blinken refuses to admit that it’s Saigon all over again, but it is.
Kabul in hands of terrorists
All hell broke loose in Kabul, Afghanistan on Monday, August 16. The airport is a scene of mass chaos and confusion with refugees so desperate to get out they’re clinging to the outside of the plane as it takes off, but not for long.
Live gunfire was exchanged by security forces. “U.S. troops shot and killed two armed men” at the international airport.
A U.S. official confirms that at least two armed men “approached U.S. troops deployed to the airport to provide security and assist Americans and other individuals in a safe departure from Afghanistan.”
Obviously they are no longer a threat. Things are way too busy in Kabul right now to report the gory details.
American forces secured the airport in Kabul Sunday with plans to “oversee the evacuation of its embassy’s personnel and diplomatic team, as well as run air control for other countries evacuating their citizens and staff.”
On the ground is confusion and chaos. All commercial U.S. flights were suspended “after numerous Afghans broke through security and crowded on the airstrip and attempted to cling to departing planes.”
Air operations suspended
The military also had to temporarily suspend all “air operations at the Kabul airport while troops try to clear the airfield of Afghans who flooded the tarmac.”
Joe Biden is allegedly emerging from his bunker at Camp David to issue an official Palace statement on how terrible the situation is right now and how bad it will continue to get as the situation deteriorates.
Everyone in Kabul is intensely aware of the calendar and the approaching 9/11 anniversary. Especially the new Taliban terrorist in charge who spent at least 8 years training in Guantanamo bay until someone was stupid enough to let him out.
Offical palace advisers on National Security “have made clear this a.m. they don’t consider the airport secure right now,” CNN’s Kaitlan Collins tweeted.
“The international evacuation plan has been bottlenecked at Karzai International Airport.” What happened is that Bagram Air Base, located north of Kabul, “was overrun with Taliban militants over the weekend.” Biden should have seen that coming. The U.S. “turned the base over to the Afghan military last month.”
As soon as they were in command, the Taliban “released thousands of prisoners that were held at Bagram, including members of al Qaeda, the terror group that carried out the 9-11 attacks and prompted the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.” According to Bill Roggio, Long War Journal editor, and terror analyst, this “will reverberate for years to come.”
