Kabul, Afghanistan the situation at Kabul airport is not ideal for anyone involved. Scenes being broadcast from there look like total chaos. The Taliban surround the airport and are in control of who gets on the planes to leave the country. Except in cases where the National Embassy has stepped in to make sure their people get out safely. So we have thousands of people being turned away with the right credentials, people standing in knee-high sewer water, and 8 people have even been killed so far trying to reach a country that will not be under Taliban rule.
Let’s add some more heat to that fire, the latest report from Kabul is there’s now a possible threat of a terrorist attack at the airport. Four members of ISIS were arrested yesterday, the sheer volume of people would make Kabul airport a target. The US, UK, and Australia have warned people to get away from the airport because the threat of a terrorist attack is high.
