After the horrible terror attack outside Kabul’s airport, the Biden administration has been scrambling.
Scrambling, that is, more than they were before. Not only have they botched their poorly-planned evacuation mission, but they were powerless to stop an attack outside the sector of the airport “protected” by U.S. military.
Word spread that another attack was imminent. The administration could not afford another day of bad press—I mean, more loss of life. So, the Pentagon carried out a drone strike against a car supposedly on its way to attack the airport again.
As usual, the Biden administration wanted praise for something that should not have been necessary. But not so far, guys. Because it turns out this might have been another hasty decision, resulting in the loss of civilians.
“We are aware of reports of civilian casualties following our strike on a vehicle in Kabul today,” CENTCOM said in a statement…
“We would be deeply saddened by any potential loss of innocent life.”
The statement, from Capt. Bill Urban, USN, U.S. Central Command Spokesman, came in response to a report from CNN that alleged “nine members of one family, including six children, were killed in the drone strike,” according to a person claiming to be the brother of one of the people killed in the strike…

Does Biden’s administration know how to do anything right? I thought the withdrawal of U.S. troops meant the end our engagement in the country? Yet, thanks to Biden’s poor leadership, we are blowing up cars again and possibly killing civilians.
It’s possible in the Pentagon’s eagerness to avoid another attack, they might have unnecessarily harmed bystanders. Left-leaning CNN were the ones to report on this terrible turn of events. CENTCOM were not totally willing to admit defeat, saying they were “assessing” the results of the strike.
But they did claim they “would be deeply saddened” by the loss of civilian life. Sadden, perhaps, because they won’t be able to brag about this strike.
Biden’s hasty strike allegedly killed nine members of a family, including six children. Wow, Joe, all that to get rid of one suicide bomber? Not a great ratio.
This comes as reports suggest that Afghanistan will soon become a hotbed of terrorist activity. The vacuum created by Biden’s botched withdrawal will allow al Qaeda, ISIS, and any other radical jihadists to set up shop in the country. And empowered by Chinese investment, there is no telling where or when these killers can strike.
Biden’s bad decisions keep making things worse. When will the majority of Congress wake up and take action?
