Pentagon Says Dangerous Time Ahead of Biden Afghanistan Withdrawal-ss-Featured

On Monday, the Pentagon released a warning that an “active threat” in Kabul is still in place. The said threat “remains high and remains real.” It also confirmed that U.S. military personnel will still exit Afghanistan in time for President Joe Biden’s Aug. 31 deadline.

Over the weekend, the president warned that another terrorist attack in the middle-eastern country is “highly likely” to happen. The Pentagon echoed Biden’s sentiment during Monday’s press briefing.

According to Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby, an “active threat in various ways” is still looming, and that they need to be prepared for it.

He added that the U.S. military has and will continue to keep up its ability to protect and “defend ourselves as we complete the retrograde.”

Kirby further stated that they remain to operate under the assumption that they need to be ready for potential threats in the future. He added that the “threat stream” remains to be active, also stating that it is “real” and “still specific.

He mentioned that the threat is still high, but that the U.S. military in Kabul managed to work out a “very carefully coordinated” way of safely completing the exit from Afghanistan.

Reporters asked Kirby to detail the said method. Kirby answered that they are currently in a “particularly dangerous” time. He then denied explaining the method for the safety and security of the people still in Afghanistan.

Pentagon: Terrorist Threat in Kabul Remains High But U.S. Exit Will Proceed as Planned

According to U.S. defense officials, as reported by Fox News, Biden’s deadline for the Afghanistan exit is 3:29 p.m. EST (11:59 p.m. local time in Kabul) on Tuesday, Aug. 31. After that, no U.S. troops will be in the said middle-eastern country for the first time in almost 20 years.

Per the White House, on Sunday, approximately 1,200 people had already been evacuated from Kabul via 26 U.S. military flights. Meanwhile, 2 coalition flights carried 50 people.

On Monday, the White House also said that since Aug. 14, which was the start of the mission, the U.S. managed to facilitate the evacuation of around 116,700 individuals. Also, since the end of July, the U.S. had managed to relocate around 122,300 people from the middle-eastern country.

Biden had authorized 6,000 U.S. servicemen to go to Afghanistan to assist in evacuating the people there. This comes as the Taliban continues their effort to restore the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, which was the formal name of the middle-eastern country when the Taliban ruled it prior to their ousting of U.S.-led forces following the 9/11 attacks. The said terror attacks that took place on Sept. 11, 2001, had been orchestrated by al Qaeda when the Taliban sheltered the group in Afghanistan.

On Monday, the Pentagon did not reveal the current number of U.S. servicemen on the ground. However, it maintained that the exit of troops would happen as planned.

With regards to the Kabul international airport – the venue where the U.S. military has been conducting evacuation efforts for Americans and Afghan allies – the Pentagon revealed that it would continue to operate “through our final flights.”

After the exit, Kirby pointed to the State Secretary’s statement, which was signed by around 100 countries, the NATO and the EU. Released last week, the statement revealed that the Taliban issued “assurances” that people with valid travel papers will still be able to leave Afghanistan.

The Taliban claimed that they will allow normal travel after U.S. servicemen all exit the country by Tuesday, which is when the group will assume control of the airport.

He hasn’t done enough of what he should have like remove the American people and allies friends first, remove your equipment and weapons, keep airport under your control for awhile with the Afghan military bomb the crap at of isis or taliban if they come anywhere near it. No he gets 13 service men and woman killed along with many civilians, Americans who made it through taliban checkpoints get turned away from airport by our people for some unknown reason . We are the laughing stock of all countries along with putting them in danger also by the way he pulled out ! Don’t glorify this imbecile please and all you who voted for him their blood 🩸 is on tour hands too because you new about him and what he was and us . Impeach this idiot before the threats come over here again ! I’m sure they have something special in store for him and this country to mark 20years since our terrorist attacks ! God bless our country and all the military on the ground and in the air

    Still?
    The morons and crazies are in charge of the insane asylum. How much more of this does it take to convince the American public of the unmitigated incompetence of the democrats?
    Absolute unmitigated stupidity on the part of the Biden administration. Who the £¥€{ is in charge? These clowns need to be charged with treason and dereliction of reality. A total disregard for the safety of American citizens. Everything else is secondary. The withdrawal from Afghanistan could not have been done more incompetently. Impeachment is the only option for this absolute idiot. Or the 25 th amendment. GIT HIM OUT AND CAMILLA TOO. President Donald Trump would never have tolerated this level of incompetence in his administration. This is a declaration of war. Get back our people and our weapons left behind. Arming the Taliban is nothing short of treason. Who makes these decisions? Is it the terrorists that are in the Biden administration? Who is pulling the strings needs to be strung up.

    I say since Joe Biden is the commander-in-chief of the military he needs to be court-martialed. If you can’t do that didn’t leave impeach him out of office he does not belong there and whoever is dictating to him what to do need to be taken out with him. I’m not hers it’s not any better she failed to process the mess at border. General Milley needs a dishonorable discharge for his incompetence of closing Bagram airport and allowing all equipment behind. The worse thing of all our citizens and Afghanistan helpers were left behind. You sure aren’t a General Patton or General Eisenhower too bad. The best thing you can do for the USA now is all of you resign and I’m talking to Beth. Dogs into Pentagon, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer. All of you are incompetent totally useless.
