- U.S. military snipers stationed at the Afghanistan airport in 2021 prior to a deadly terror attack that killed 13 Americans had an opportunity to kill the suspected bomber but were not given authority from military leaders, according to one of the American service members on the ground that day.
- Tyler Vargas-Andrews, a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps who was dispatched to Kabul during the Biden administration’s bungled evacuation, on Wednesday told lawmakers on the House Foreign Affairs Committee that his sniper team was stopped from taking out the suspected terrorist bomber.
- Vargas-Andrews also recounted how the Biden State Department turned Afghans away from the airport, “condemning them to death” at the Taliban’s hands. The Aug. 26 bombing left 13 U.S. military members dead and Vargas-Andrews severely wounded.
