The death toll for the suicide bombings in Kabul has now risen to almost 200, including 13 American troops
· Aug 27, 2021 ·

Last week, President Joe Biden literally knocked on wood when he said no American had been killed in the insanity unfolding in Kabul.

Then this happened:

The death toll now stands at almost 200, with 13 of them being U.S. service members.

The death toll in Thursday's terrorist attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, rose overnight, and more than 200 people are now believed dead from twin suicide bombings near Hamid Karzai International Airport, where many were desperately trying to escape the country on final evacuation flights.

"The death toll in a pair of suicide bombings that rocked Kabul yesterday has now risen to nearly 200 on Friday as evacuation flights remain ongoing," Fox News reported Friday. "169 Afghans were killed according to two officials who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The U.S. said 13 service members were killed in the deadliest day for American forces in Afghanistan since August 2011."

Despite the attack, people are still lining up at the airport, so desperate to escape the country that they are willing to risk a horrific, fiery death.

What an absolute mess.
