Despite the deadly suicide bombing at Kabul Airport, President Joe Biden vowed on Thursday to complete the evacuation of American citizens and others from Afghanistan. He also promised to avenge the dead and declared to responsible extremists: “We will hunt them down and make them pay the price.”

Biden said in a speech at the White House that the Islamic State’s subsidiary in Afghanistan should have caused 12 American soldiers. And more responsible for the attacks on the deaths of Afghan civilians. He said there is no evidence that they colluded with the Taliban who now control the country.

“We have reason to believe that we know who they are,” he said of the terrorists and gunmen involved. “Uncertain.”
He said that he has instructed the military commander to develop a plan to attack the “assets, leadership, and facilities” of the Islamic State. Approximately 1,000 Americans and more Afghans continue to flee Kabul.
