As the withdrawal deadline quickly approaches in Afghanistan, the U.S. Embassy in Kabul has issued a dire warning of another attack at Kabul’s airport.
In light of a “credible threat”, U.S. officials have ordered all U.S. citizens to flee the vicinity of Kabul’s airport.
“Due to a specific, credible threat, all U.S. citizens in the vicinity of Kabul airport (HKIA), including the South (Airport Circle) gate, the new Ministry of the Interior, and the gate near the Panjshir Petrol station on the northwest side of the airport, should leave the airport area immediately,” the U.S. Embassy in Kabul warned on Sunday.

“U.S. citizens should avoid traveling to the airport and avoid all airport gates at this time,” they stated.
The Taliban told the Biden administration that evacuation efforts must be completed by August 31st.
The number of American citizens in Afghanistan who still need to be evacuated is unknown.
The U.S. Embassy’s warning comes a day after Biden said another attack at the Kabul airport is “highly likely.”
“The situation on the ground continues to be extremely dangerous, and the threat of terrorist attacks on the airport remains high,” Biden stated.

“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.”
Early Monday NBC News reported that as many as 5 rockets were launched towards the Kabul airport.
U.S. air defenses were engaged, a defense official stated, adding there were no reports of casualties at the time.
Reports later came in from witnesses that missiles struck a neighborhood near the airport, and that they heard gunfire afterwards.
This is a developing story, stay tuned for additional updates.

This required an intelligent, co-ordinated plan with approval and help from our allies. This administration is inept at best. Biden has onset dementia. Just watched stepfather from start to end. Exactly same symtoms and mannerisms. How many mistakes and lives will be lost till truth comes out. God bless this coutry and military, Im retired military/ DoD and realize that good decision makers are needed. We are in one hell of a mess.

Have any of those in office ever served in the military? I think & feel that those who are able to should serve a minimal
two years so they understand what those who have served go through.
I do know in my time :some gave and some gave all ! Over 5800
Second Battalion, Fourth Marines
Expedionary in Nam !

Paula Anderson says
I agree and thank you for your service Sgt. S. Avila!
Robert M Whitsett says
Biden and his senior advisors should be impeached or forced to resign. This administration is a basket case that led to 13 young men and women being killed and hundreds left to the mercy of the Taliban.
Was there EVER a plan for a mass evacuation of civilians? We did not plan on the events that happened that have caused the evacuations. We were prepared to evacuate our military troops, but was there ever a plan for this kind of event? YES the mission is being carried out in the most effective manner possible, we NEED to remember to THAN K those working so hard to get people out of harms way. We seem to be forgetting the hard work that IS being done and always ready to criticize the after effects. it looks and seems as though we have FAILED everyone both foreign and abroad.
