BREAKING: Biden warns that another attack on the Kabul airport is “highly likely”

According to a new report from NBC News, President Biden has warned  a new attack against U.S. forces in Kabul “highly likely in the next 24-36 hours.”

Biden said in a statement “The situation on the ground continues to be extremely dangerous, and the threat of terrorist attacks on the airport remains high.”

“Our commanders informed me that an attack is highly likely in the next 24-36 hours,” he added.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper tweeted Friday:

Two weeks prior to the attack in Kabul, CNN’s @clarissaward interviewed a senior ISIS-K commander.

At that time the commander told Ward the group was laying low and waiting for a time to strike.

As Ward notes, these were “words that turned out to be eerily prophetic.”
