‘We Will Hunt You Down’: Biden Speaks After Terror Attack In Kabul That Killed At Least 12 U.S. Service Members

President Joe Biden pledged to hunt down ISIS-K following a pair of terror attacks outside Kabul’s airport that left at least a dozen American service members dead, including 11 United States Marines and one U.S. Navy hospital corpsman. More than a hundred Afghans were wounded in the suicide bombing and at least 60 are believed dead, though the Taliban has so far refused to provide up-to-date numbers.

Speaking late Thursday afternoon, Biden, who appeared visibly exhausted, said it was a “tough day” and praised the U.S. military before pledging to “hunt down” ISIS-K and make them pay for the loss of American lives.

“They are part of the bravest, most capable, the best, selfless military on the face of the earth, and they are part of simply what I call the backbone of America,” Biden said. “They are the spine of America — the best the country has to offer.”

“We will not forgive, we will not forget,” he added. “We will hunt you down and make you pay.”

“I’ve also told my commanders to attack ISIS-K assets. And we will respond with precision, at our time, at a place that we choose, and the moment of our choosing,” Biden said. “Here’s what you need to know. These ISIS terrorists will not win.” – READ MORE
