Do you know what this reminds me of?
It reminds me of when the government/media said during the BLM riots that white supremacists were pretending to be black people and starting the riots.
It’s just pure nonsense, which is made up out of nothing.
Concerns about security around Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul have increased based on “a very specific threat stream” from ISIS-K about planned attacks against crowds outside the airport, a US defense official has told CNN.
The US believes ISIS-K, which is a sworn enemy of the Taliban, wants to create mayhem at the airport and has intelligence streams suggesting it is capable and planning to carry out multiple attacks, according to the official.
On Tuesday, as he confirmed his decision not to extend the evacuation deadline beyond August 31, President Joe Biden acknowledged the growing threat the group poses to the airport.
“Every day we’re on the ground is another day we know that ISIS-K is seeking to target the airport and attack both US and allied forces and innocent civilians,” Biden said.
Concerns increased after more than 100 prison inmates loyal to the ISIS affiliate in Afghanistan escaped from two prisons near Kabul as the Taliban advanced on the Afghan capital, CNN has learned.
One regional counter-terrorism source told CNN that as many as several hundred members of ISIS-K may have escaped from the jails at Bagram and Pul-e-Charkhi, both to the east of Kabul. Both prisons fell to the Taliban shortly before they entered Kabul.
A Taliban spokesman would not address reports of the escapes when asked by CNN Wednesday, saying only they were not confirmed.
As for the risk of terrorist attacks at and around the airport, a Taliban spokesman said Tuesday: “There have been reports that some ill-wishers want to disrupt the security situation there by attacking and harming people and the media. So don’t go close to the airport to avoid being hurt.”
That sounds like some pretty solid advice.
As I’ve said from the beginning, this entire airport thing is nonsensical. Right now, the airport is being rushed by the standard earth-scum that marched into Europe in 2015. Those people are not “interpreters,” they’re not “American citizens,” and they’re not “fleeing the Taliban.” They’re just people trying to get a free ride to America or Europe or wherever.
If there are American citizens “trapped” in Kabul, they should just go home and wait for a couple weeks until the US leaves the country and the situation at the airport clears up, at which point they can just go get on a plane at their leisure.
There is no “chaos” in Kabul, outside of the one place the US still occupies: the airport. There is no rush to get out of the country. There is no looming threat.
This is all just maniac disinformation, and I’m not surprised they’ve added their ISIS boogieman.
