The mess caused by the Biden administration in Afghanistan can't be understated. We chose this over the prosperity under President Trump.
As early as last week, the US military knew the Taliban would attack the Kabul Airport. Because of this understanding, the US State Department issued a warning to those traveling to Hamid Kazai Airport.
Unfortunately, the warning did nothing to protect our service members when a suicide bomber blew himself up killing 13 Americans—11 Marines, a Navy hospital man and an Army Staff Sergeant were killed in the attack. At least 90 Afghans died in the attack as well.
Following the attack, one Marine wrote a text message to Raid Team. He disclosed that a countdown existed before the suicide bomber would blow himself up. The Taliban let the suicide bomber through the perimeter, but he wasn't allowed into the inside perimeter under Marine control. The suicide bomber activated his vest near the crowded Abbey Gate.
The Marine confirmed that a countdown existed even though Instagram has done its best to censor this information. He also spoke about how they weren't given the proper equipment to deal with an attack like this.
“Yeah… it happened an hour after the last radio transmission about it. They said 10 minutes an IED is set to go off. 2 minutes an IED is set to go off. At 1627 an IED is going to go off. Then at 1730 something finally went off.”
“The S Vest (suicide vest) countdown is no lie. I head occasional radio chatter of them saying how far away the bomber was. Absolute incompetence. We had a Carl G and literally had to steal rounds because we were not given them…”
Why is this information being covered up by big tech?
Could it be that it would make President Joe Biden look even worse than he already does, even among the Democrats?
