The US Embassy in Kabul just sent an alert saying, “US citizens who are at the Abbey Gate, East Gate, or North Gate now should leave immediately” in the wake of a blast at the Hamid Karzai International Airport Thursday.

“There has been a large explosion at the airport, and there are reports of gunfire,” the security alert said.

“U.S. citizens should avoid traveling to the airport and avoid airport gates at this time,” it added.

The explosion occurred as Western nations are struggling to evacuate people following the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.

Twitter Updates

Here are some updates we’re seeing on Twitter. This is a fast-moving story.

ISIS Claims Kabul Bombings

Politico reports that US Officials gave the Taliban a list of American, Green Card Holder, and Afghan ally names to assist in evacuation:

From Politico:

U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of names of American citizens, green card holders and Afghan allies to grant entry into the militant-controlled outer perimeter of the city’s airport, a choice that’s prompted outrage behind the scenes from lawmakers and military officials.

The move, detailed to POLITICO by three U.S. and congressional officials, was designed to expedite the evacuation of tens of thousands of people from Afghanistan as chaos erupted in Afghanistan’s capital city last week after the Taliban seized control of the country. It also came as the Biden administration has been relying on the Taliban for security outside the airport.

But the decision to provide specific names to the Taliban, which has a history of brutally murdering Afghans who collaborated with the U.S. and other coalition forces during the conflict, has angered lawmakers and military officials.

“Basically, they just put all those Afghans on a kill list,” said one defense official, who like others spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive topic. “It’s just appalling and shocking and makes you feel unclean.”

A spokesperson for U.S. Central Command declined to comment.

Taliban says “several explosions” were detonated by US troops

Just saw some footage. Man holding a dead infant, bodies everywhere, total carnage. “Officials” report 3 Marine casualties. Ongoing firefight.

God Damn Joseph Biden and his entire cursed “administration”.

Hopefully that reporter Biden mocked yesterday was, indeed, the first to know.

So how do Americans get evacuated when they are told by their government not to go to the only airport being used for evacuations?

“Oh well, they should have gotten out sooner. We told them over and over to leave. Going all of the way back to May. They decided to stay.

Yes, I know, only a month ago Biden said they government won’t fall to the Taliban. That it could not and would not happen. But Americans in Afghanistan should have known better. Too bad. They f’d up. They trusted us”

— Pcircle Back Psaki

Unfortunately it was just a matter of time. The enemy is emboldened in the face of abject cowardice. You have to be really stupid to believe the what the Taliban says, in its “good will”. Anyone ever hear of taquiyya?

This is going to complicate the “miraculous Afghanistan airlift” narrative the Biden* junta has been promoting.

    Not at all. They’ll just point out that everyone who “wanted” to leave is already gone. The people injured here chose their own fate.

    And they’ll say it with straight faces.

    They are welding the gates shut. They are abandoning Americans throughout Afghanistan. The White House will say that Americans left behind stayed by their own choice.

    Mark my words: You will see Americans abandoned in Afghanistan beheaded to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of 9/11.

“Reports say 13 dead, including children”

The rule for newspapers long ago was that foreign mishaps gave a death count and added “including X Americans.”

Domestic mishaps gave a death count and added “including X children.”

Here it’s sort of a mixed genre, both an American genre and a foreign genre. News media give both tags.

Pretty sure Afghanistan’s economy in the short term will be driven by hostage ransom payments by Western governments, which is why Biden doesn’t give two shits about who is left behind. This was a done deal months ago.

    That. And arms sales.

    Agreed the deal was done months ago. Pallets of cash are probably being loaded on the planes as I write this.

      MattMusson in reply to JHogan. | August 26, 2021 at 4:00 pm

      If you don’t think Biden is paying off the Taliban to use the Airport until 8/31 then you are not paying attention.

Who is drafting articles of impeachment.

C’mon man, where is my ice cream cone?

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to lhw. | August 26, 2021 at 1:53 pm

    I know you meant well, but, this is hardly funny anymore.

    Our Chief Executive has all the cognizance of a retirement home Alzheimer’s patient. This is a whole lot of Not Good.

      I think the timeframe for his removal has moved up a notch or two.

        Lucifer Morningstar in reply to UserP. | August 26, 2021 at 5:36 pm

        But the problem is that even if you remove Biden who is there to replace him. Harris? She’s as much a psychopathic dim-bulb as Biden so I can’t see where that would be an improvement. Then Pelosi. Another psychopathic dim-bulb. Then President pro tempore of the Senate, Secretary of State, Sec. of Treasury, Sec. Defense, Attorney General, Secretaries of Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, HHS, HUD, Transportation, Energy, Education, Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security (<–in that order). So tell me. Who isn't a complete liberal lackey that we could have take over if Biden is removed. Who in that list isn't a complete liberal fuck-up factory that wouldn't be any better than Biden on a bad day.

        That's your problem with removing Biden. There just isn't really any better alternative that could get us out of this craptasitic mess that Joe has gotten the country into. And that's the truth.

      I do not regard any of this as funny. I regard it as pathetic at best.

      You can’t shame Democrats.
      All you can do is harry them into hiding, then apply napalm.
      It’s like lice. Unless you get them all, plus the eggs, they just come back.

    It got too close to the telepromter and melted.

Real American | August 26, 2021 at 11:38 am

C’mon man. That was 4 or 5 hours ago!

This is what really frosts me about the Republicans:

Once again, standing in line for a photo-op voicing there disgust. Tough guys with an motion to impeach in circulation in the House awaiting their signature. How about they line up so we can kick them all in the groin? Beyond useless. Detestable phonies.

    Milhouse in reply to Pasadena Phil. | August 27, 2021 at 10:21 am

    What the **** else can they do? A motion to impeach is exactly the same as what they’re doing — a way of expressing their protest without any ability to change anything. It’s as futile as the impeachment motions that Al Green used to file against Trump every other month.

Start the bombing. First target presidential palace. Then all the military equipment we left.

An American with a USA passport is denied passage to the airport but a suicide bomber is? F the taliban. Bomb them 24/7.

Four isn’t very many. The news likes to hit it because it gets clicks.

What the news always claims is to know what’s important. It’s always wrong. It knows what gets eyeballs.

    It’s now up to 10, but even one is one too many.

      It matters individually but not in the great strategic scheme of things. It’s eye-catching entertainment though. Outrage is an entertainment for an audience – how many films use it so that justice can be served at the end.

      It’s used though to take everybody’s eye off the ball.

      Less outrage, more WTF are they up to.

        alaskabob in reply to rhhardin. | August 26, 2021 at 5:02 pm

        Your math about the totality is off and will continue. It does matter in the total scheme unless you love Hillary.

The problem with Biden is that he doesn’t know how a deal works, so he can’t make any.

In a deal, both sides come out ahead. That’s what holds the deal together.

Biden and company never make a deal that’s good for the US. They just want the deal, any deal, and sell the US out to get it.

Trump was more imaginative, finding a way to reframe stuff so that a mutually beneficial deal became possible where Biden is just stuck.

Will troops and commanders abandoned mutiny?

Biden should resign in disgrace the bastard.

Listen to this chunk:

Left-wing MSNBC intelligence analyst Malcolm Nance downplayed Thursday’s suicide bombing outside of Kabul’s airport, which reportedly killed at least four U.S. Marines, telling his nearly one million Twitter followers to “deal with it.”

While the attacks near the airport resulted in multiple casualties and forced most media members to brace for the worst, Nance didn’t seem to think the terror attack was a big deal.

“20 YEARS- FYI there have been terrorist suicide bombers killing civilians nearly DAILY in Afghanistan. This ain’t new. It’s why we are leaving,” Nance tweeted before adding the controversial hashtag “#DealWithIt.”

Nance, who served in the U.S. Navy, was swiftly roasted for saying people should “deal with” the loss of lives.

“Imagine not just thinking this, but feeling so beyond shame and perspective that you tweet it publicly,” Fourth Watch editor Steve Krakauer responded.

    JHogan in reply to JohnC. | August 26, 2021 at 3:27 pm

    Despicable. But that’s how radical elitist left wingers really think. Except he slipped up. They usually hide it.

    Tens of millions dead caused by 100+ years of radical elitist left wing rulers around the globe is evidence of how little they really value human life.

    With the exception for their own. And the lives of their families, and friends, and ruling Party members.

Our Tutu wearing DOD needs to start stepping down.

Things haven’t been this shitty since Barky was “leading” while taking it up the behind.

Colonel Travis | August 26, 2021 at 3:19 pm

All the good in America, all the talent, everything here just pissed away by the left. These people shouldn’t be in control of their own bladders. Half the country cheers them.

What are the chances the NY Times or Washington Post puts a picture of the flag-draped caskets on the front page? (rhetorical question)

Wonder by who’s control, multiple suicide bombers or IED, beginning of a offensive or one offensive attacks.
Lots of questions and your not going to get it from the administration.

    mailman in reply to Skip. | August 26, 2021 at 4:50 pm

    I doubt it’s the Taliban. They want American forces gone by August 31 so probably understand that there is little point in prolonging their stay longer than is needed.

    On the other hand, the Taliban are the ones holding all the cards here. They don’t need any deaks Biden could make. They own Afghanistan and would probably happily take deaths from retaliatory strikes on tge understanding that American forces can’t stay for ever due to their poor tactical situation exacerbated by Biden closing their one truly strategic base in the region before anyone could be evacuated.

    Basically Biden has fucked this whole situation up like only he could fick things up.

If 9/11 were to happen today- passengers would overpower the terrorists and fly all the planes into the white house themselves.

In Wa where the police have been told not to engage, they questioned a woman suspected of robbery, she refused to talk and ran for it. Under the new rules, police did not pursue her. She robbed like 6 other places in the next hour before she was taken down.

This is weaponized stupidity.

I love the cherry on top of the Biden admin giving a list of all Americans and Afghan allies the admin wants the Taliban to let into the airport. Stolen elections , especially putting a demented perv and political streetwalker in power, have expected consequences. Those that chose them..chose the administration.

Real American | August 26, 2021 at 5:15 pm

C’mon man! That was 4 or 5 ice cream cones ago!

Thanks to vile Xi-den’s and the Dhimmi-crats’ stupidity, naiviete and narcissism, more troops have now been killed during this withdrawal debacle than in the past two years during combat operations.

E Howard Hunt | August 26, 2021 at 6:30 pm

The time for snarky comments is over. Individual acts of defiance are useless. We must identify and rally around an imperfect new strong man.

Oh Jesus

When do the trials start? These officials need to be in prison.

A friend of mine texted me about the list saying, surely not even Joe Biden is that stupid. Well … yes, he is. Ditto the idiots around him.
