Father of slain Marine: ‘Biden turned his back on him’
The father of a U.S. marine who was killed in the suicide bombing at Kabul’s airport says President Biden “turned his back” on his son.
Steve Nikoui told The Daily Beast that he found out his son Kareem Nikoui was killed in the attack when Marines arrived at his home to deliver the news around 7:15 p.m. Thursday evening.
He told the news outlet that he’s still in shock about what transpired.
“I haven’t gone to bed all night,” Steve Nikoui said. “I’m still in shock. I haven’t been able to grasp everything that’s going on.”
He told The Daily Beast that he wants to “respect the office” of the president but feels Biden let his son down.
“They sent my son over there as a paper pusher and then had the Taliban outside providing security,” he said. “I blame my own military leaders. … Biden turned his back on him. That’s it.”
Mr. Nikoui appeared on the Tucker Carlson show on Friday night.
From FOX News:
“They sent my son over there as a paper pusher and then had the Taliban outside providing security,” Steve Nikoui, the father of Kareem Nikoui, told The Daily Beast. “I blame my own military leaders. … Biden turned his back on him. That’s it.”
Steve Nikoui told the website that he was notified of his son’s death by a group of Marines who showed up on his doorstep Thursday evening. The elder Nikoui said he had stayed home from work after hearing the news of Thursday’s attack and had been “glued to the TV” waiting for any word of his son.
Nikoui said the Marines who delivered the dreaded news were “more choked up than me.”
“I was actually trying to console them,” he said. “But at the same time, I just wanted them to get out as soon as possible so that no one from my family came back and saw them. I thought it appropriate that I be able to tell them.”…
Nikoui went on to compare the area of the airport Kareem and his colleagues were patrolling to a “turkey shoot.”
“Basically, it’s funneled into like a single-file type [of] entry point at which, you know, if you have any sort of chaos of any sort, they would all gather to that one funneled area [in] which they would all be susceptible, and I think that’s exactly what happened,” he said. “It was just basically so chaotic and not really planned out. Now, I’m a carpenter and even I could spot that with my untrained military eye.”
