President Biden has vowed revenge on the jihadists responsible for killing dozens of people in twin suicide attacks at the airport in Kabul.
Following the deadly suicide bombing near Kabul airport, terrorist group ISIS-K has claimed responsibility for the attacks. It has since also been confirmed that as many as 90 people, including 12 US Marines and a US Navy medic, died in the twin bomb attacks.
A further 150 people are believed to be injured, whereas the authorities fear that more attacks on the airport could take place at any time.
The deadliest attack on the US troops in the last decade has sparked fury in the States where Republicans began demanding President Biden resigns over his handling of the crisis in Afghanistan.
While Biden admitted he is responsible for “fundamentally all that’s happened of late,” he promised revenge against the terror group that claimed the lives of 13 Americans.
“For those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone who wishes America harm, know this: We will not forgive, we will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay,” Biden said as he addressed the nation from the White House on Thursday.
While talking to the press, Biden also decided to take a question from Peter Doocy of Fox News who asked him if he feels responsible for the deaths of 12 Marines and 1 Navy medic.
“You set a deadline, you pulled troops out, you sent troops back in and now 12 Marines are dead. You said the buck stops with you. Do you bear any responsibility for the way that things unfolded in the last two weeks?” Doocy asked the president.
“I bear responsibility for fundamentally all that’s happened of late,” Biden responded before shifting blame to the previous administration.
“Here’s the deal, you know (…) as well as I do that the former president made a deal with the Taliban that he would get all American forces out of Afghanistan by May 1.”
Following the deadly suicide attacks at the international airport in Kabul, Biden reportedly ordered top commanders to plan attacks against ISIS and their assets.
“I’ve also ordered my commanders to develop operational plans to strike ISIS-K assets, leadership and facilities. We will respond with force and precision at the place we choose and a moment of our choosing,” Biden added.
