Afghanistan is becoming a bigger and bigger disaster by the day. Our “President” pulled our troops out of Afghanistan in July, allowing the Taliban to sweep through Afghanistan like a plague. The Taliban captured U.S. bases, got its very own air force, armed its troops with U.S. weapons and ammo, and used U.S. vehicles to terrorize the populace. And along the way, U.S.-captured prisoners were released — including numerous ISIS terrorists, who initiated a suicide bomb attack on the area surrounding the spot where Americans were meeting in hopes of the Biden administration deciding they were important enough to be evacuated. Now, a Biden drone strike killed a bunch of kids but missed the terrorists he was trying to target.
Drawing on his friend Obama’s love of drones, Biden sent some after what was allegedly an ISIS car bomb intended to be used in another attack on the Kabul airport. While the administration claims the car bomb was destroyed, no terrorists were killed. In fact, every single dead body comes from a single vehicle that was leaving its driveway — and the victims were just a family trying to leave their house. The Washington Post reports:
A U.S. drone strike targeting the Islamic State killed 10 civilians in Kabul, including several small children, family members told The Washington Post on Monday. The dead were all from a single extended family and were getting out of a car in their modest driveway when the strike hit a nearby vehicle.
U.S. Central Command said the strike Sunday destroyed an Islamic State car bomb that posed an “imminent” threat to Kabul’s airport. The command said in a statement it was “aware of reports of civilian casualties,” adding: “We would be deeply saddened by any potential loss of innocent life.”
This was the second U.S. drone strike in response to a suicide bombing and gunfire attack outside Kabul’s airport Thursday that killed 13 U.S. troops and over 170 civilians trying to flee the country.
The scene is horrifying:
Nothing seems to indicate that this family was going to be involved in any terrorist attack. Because Biden needed a show of bravado, 10 civilians — including children — are dead. If we let him keep doing his job, Americans — like the ones he intends to strand in Afghanistan — will die too.
