  1. Biden: “Afghanistan will NOT become an ISIS Terrorist Heaven”

    ISIS: KABOOM! You said something Joe?

    1. @Bubba Long did watch the news???? They warn their people and after that explosion happen after that they announced that they don’t know who did this attack. So how could they predict???

    3. @Fly High They didn’t know precisely. Of course! But there are always leaks, etc. often put out in advance by the attackers themselves. You don’t know that? Or are you a troll? Think! Use what’s between your ears.

    1. No one should be reporting on things that they can not independently confirm. First rule of journalism, wait for independent confirmation.

  2. So heartbreaking that the tragedy caused by the Biden administration’s incompetence is now killing even more people

    1. If you know the history of that part of the world over the last 2500 years you know the fighting and killing there has nothing to do with an American president only in office a few months or any American president for that matter. No one has ever been in control there for millennia . Most recently the Russians weren’t in control, the Americans weren’t ever in control (regardless who was US president) , the Afghan government was never in control and now clearly the Taliban isn’t in control. The Taliban were just humiliated by one of their many rival warlords. Sadly the tragic history of Afghanistan continues and will continue unfortunately regardless of what entity tries to “be in control”. 4 previous presidents failed to extract the US from an endless war that had no meaningful goal for the US. While the human loss due to todays cruel bombings is staggering just know that there is an end in sight to American sons and daughters dying there in years to come because one guy stood up and took full responsibility to make leaving there a reality.

  3. Biden said if this happen they would face consequences let’s see these consequences joe come on man we got soldiers dying

  4. Well at least it’s no Saigon. And as Kamala said…. “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH…. Afghanistan is our highest priority.

  5. Its 3pm here in the East Coast right now – Biden should be going to bed. Stay tune for a speech tomorrow morning regarding the 12-U.S. marines killed today so far.

  6. Biden – Quick give me a neck to sniff to calm my nerves because I do not know what the hell I’m doing.

  7. But no one is demanding Impeachment of President the way they were demanding for Trump .

    Tech Gaints are with Joe ..

  8. That is the culmination of just another Planetary Scale Failure of a declining, selfish and dishonest empire…
    America is no more!
