Biden warned of possible terrorist attacks and now two bombs have gone off outside the  Kabul airport. At least thirteen are presumed dead along with three US Marines.

Here’s what Biden said about the potential threat on August 20th.

“We’re also keeping a close watch on any potential terrorist threat at or around the airport, including from the ISIS affiliates in Afghanistan who were released from prison when the prisons were emptied. And because they are, by the way – to make everybody understand – that the ISIS in Afghanistan are the – have been the sworn enemy of the Taliban. 
I’ve said all along: We’re going to retain a laser-focus on our counterterrorism mission, working in close coordination with our allies and our partners and all those who have an interest in ensuring stability in the region.”


As the tension rises in Kabul, Biden is still trying to make the August 31st deadline to get all Americans and Afghans who helped the US war effort evacuated.
