Muslim ISIS KIll Over 60 Including 12 US Service Members In Kabul Airport Suicide Explosion: Biden And Harris Go Silent......

Biden goes silent after his Kabul fiasco costs first American lives: Two 'ISIS' blasts kill up to 60 - including 11 Marines and one Navy medic - and leaves faltering evacuation plans in tatters 

Eleven US Marines and one Navy medic were among those killed in a series of suicide bomb attacks on Kabul airport on Thursday, the first American lives to be lost since Biden's disastrous Afghanistan evacuation effort began on August 14. The President has not commented publicly on the deaths and he is not scheduled to make any kind of statement or speech on Thursday. The deafening silence has angered Republicans who say the blood of those killed is on his hands. An official death toll has not yet been given but according to those on the ground including a New York Times reporter who counted 40 dead bodies. The Wall Street Journal said 60 Afghans had died. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby released a statement saying a 'number' had died, but he wouldn't give any additional details. Other troops are feared to have been injured. Biden's meetings were canceled on Thursday immediately after the attack while he spoke with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley. Neither the President or anyone in the administration has offered a plan for getting out the remaining troops and civilians before August 31, the Taliban's deadline. Norway, Poland, Holland and Canada have all stopped evacuating citizens. In a statement on Thursday afternoon, Norway's Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Soereide said the doors at the airport are 'closed'. The State Department is telling Americans stuck in Afghanistan to stay in their homes, while Britain has told its stranded citizens to make a run for the Pakistan border, along with thousands of Afghan refugees.
