Pentagon: Taliban Failure May Have Led To Deadly Bombing

(Arlington, VA) -- A Pentagon spokesperson says the U.S. is investigating a possible security breakdown following Thursday's deadly bombings in Afghanistan.  

John Kirby was pressed how the bombers got past Taliban checkpoints. The U.S. is relying on the terrorist group to provide security outside the Kabul airport until the evacuation is complete. Thirteen troops died and 18 were wounded in ISIS-K attacks Thursday near the Kabul airport.

The White House confirms national security officials warned President Biden another terrorist attack in Kabul is likely. Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the news in a statement.

U.S. military commanders also updated Biden on plans to develop ISIS-K targets.  

They told him the next few days of this mission will be the most dangerous period to date.
