On Friday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made a blunt response when asked by the press on what President Biden meant when by hunting ISIS-K down and making them pay.
Psaki’s answer to the question is that the President expects US assets to kill the terrorists who ordered the attack at the Kabul airport during the evacuation of Americans and Afghans, Mail Online reported.
Moreover, Psaki added her own dose of colorful language, a day after President Biden gave a message to those who carried out the bombings that ‘we will hunt you down and make you pay.’
When asked during a press briefing to explain exactly what the President meant, Psaki answered: “I think he made clear yesterday that he does not want them to live on the earth anymore.”
Psaki was responding to a question from Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy on whether Biden ‘is going to order a mission to kill the people responsible, or would he be satisfied if they are captured?’
Psaki also pushed back at a question on whether it would be harder for the US to strike at the terrorists once the American troops pull its last forces out of Afghanistan.
She added that the US has ‘enormous capabilities and capacities’ for ‘consistently hunting and tracking down terrorists around the world.’
Psaki spoke to the press a day after the President made a statement about the ISIS-orchestrated attack, which has led to the death of 13 American servicemen and more than 160 Afghans.
“To those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone who wishes America harm, know this,” Biden said. “We will not forgive, we will not forget.”
“We will hunt you down and make you pay,” Biden said. “I will defend our interests and our people with every measure at my command.”
Psaki then described the effort as a kill mission, rather than one designed to kill or capture the perpetrators.
