Taliban Fighters Reportedly Seize Military Side Of Kabul Airport Using American Weapons

With the deadline for the American withdrawal from Afghanistan looming in just four short days, Taliban fighters are moving to take full control of the airport, according to unconfirmed media reports. At this pace, it looks like the airport will be under complete Taliban control by tomorrow.
