It’s just one cover up after another coming out of Afghanistan. Breaking reports are claiming that the Pentagon had a full 24 hour warning before an ISIS-K soldier covered in explosives walked up to a U.S. Security checkpoint and detonated in their faces.
Urgent warning ignored
When an explosive extremist detonated himself to paradise right outside Hamid Karzai International Airport on Thursday, all the top brass were gathered for the daily Pentagon strategy meeting.
The nation’s top generals almost choked on their coffee when the monitors lit up like a Christmas tree. It happened just as the big guy strolled in. Despite a warning.
The real explosion happened when the press found out that a full 24 hours before, in a similar morning strategy meeting, Lloyd Austin warned them what was coming. On Wednesday, Defense Minister Austin, speaking from “a secure video conference room on the third floor of the Pentagon” had some clear orders for his department.
Austin “instructed more than a dozen of the department’s top leaders around the world to make preparations for an imminent “mass casualty event.” Even with warning, they couldn’t do a thing to stop it.
Somebody ratted to Politico and illegally handed them “classified detailed notes of the gathering.”
They show that Super-Big-Cheese General Mark Milley, who’s head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff also issued a warning about “significant” intelligence indicating that the Islamic State’s Afghanistan affiliate, ISIS-K, was planning a ‘complex attack.'” They even had a pretty good idea where it was going to happen.
Abbey Gate ‘highest risk’
All the field commanders were in agreement as they phoned in from Kabul that “the Abbey Gate” was the “highest risk,” because that’s where Americans “gather in order to gain entrance to the airport.”
That might be a good target to protect, they all thought. With everyone on alert following the warning, the brass is amazed at what happened. “I don’t believe people get the incredible amount of risk on the ground,” Austin said in the notes.
Later Wednesday, the generals had a separate conference call where the commanders “detailed a plan to close Abbey Gate by Thursday afternoon Kabul time.” Then they broke their own warning response plan.
The “Americans decided to keep the gate open longer than they wanted in order to allow their British allies, who had accelerated their withdrawal timeline, to continue evacuating their personnel, based at the nearby Baron Hotel.” Being nice came with a huge price tag.
Warning and high alert status didn’t stop the ISIS insurgent from his date with 72 virgins. He might of scored a new record by “killing nearly 200 people, including 13 U.S. service members.” Joe Biden has been missing in action. Some say he’s in Texas, stashed away in the basement of a Democrat lawmaker to repay the sanctuary favor.
Politico claims they may be in possession of some highly illegal contraband but the good news is they’re keeping it in the safe. The outlet claims they’re “withholding information from the Pentagon readouts that could affect ongoing military operations at Kabul airport.”
