“A number of others are being treated for wounds,” Kirby said. “We also know that a number of Afghans fell victim to this heinous attack.”

  1. He needs to quit thinking that we all can’t see or hear what has evolved in these last few days. Who does he think he’s addressing? This administration has lost it. We are Americans. God bless the troops. May God Bless us all.

  2. Mr President we need to feel safe again, please engage with an action plan to get everyone out of Afghanistan safely. Please stop the Congress people to waste time in other topics other than getting all our fellow Americans out of Afghanistan as quickly as possible.

    1. He’s not going to make a plan till he gets everyone out because if he attacks now all our allies and troops who are at the airport now will began to get heavy fire from all around them. So he’s trying to take everyone out for there safety

  3. A lot of people with high IQs are terrible investors because they’ve got terrible temperaments. You need to keep raw, irrational emotion under control

    1. the Taliban only want to rule Afghanistan. they are not the ones who want death to the west and similar things. that’s isis and al qaeda

    2. That’s it he wants to be the big hero kind of funny how he’s president for not even a year yet and we’re already at War from prison office for 4 years and not a single War

  13. Experts have recognized NATO’s defeat in Afghanistan as the biggest catastrophe since Dunkirk. Military experts argue that Jens Stoltenberg should be arrested and tried by a military tribunal.
    Biden, Boris Johnson and Merkel must kneel down and ask the Afghan people for forgiveness for the Taliban taking over Kabul. Biden, Boris Johnson and Merkel also failed to secure a safe evacuation
