3:01 pm
abbey gate and another not too far away at a nearby hotel. here's what we know right now. it is confirmed that 12 us service members have been killed in 15 more have been wounded. 16 afghans were killed. there are still 1000 americans that need to be evacuated from afghanistan and isis k has taken responsibility for this attack. earlier today during a pentagon briefing, general kenneth mckenzie said that the u.s. is prepared to take action against those responsible and you heard what the president had to say just there right now saying we will hunt you down and make you pay. those were his words to the people responsible for these deaths in this attack. now for the last week and a half, the u.s. has been trying to evacuate thousands americans out of afghanistan. president biden says the u.s. will continue with the evacuation missions, saying that we will not be deterred and we will continue the evacuations saying that what america says it's going to do something unless something exceptional happens. it will do it. let's get the latest
3:02 pm
now from our dc correspondent alexandra limon. >> allies who lost lives. given iw the service of liberty. the service security. the service of others. >> u.s. officials say a suicide bomber is responsible for an explosion that killed 12 us service members and injured 15 more at a gate at the kabul airport. there are also a number of additional reported attacks, at least 60 afghans have been killed. the attack on the abu ghaith was followed by a number of isis gunman who opened fire on civilians and military forces. general kenneth mckenzie said troops must physically search those entering the airport and being that close led to the high number of us troop casualties. republicans like congressman mike wools blame the biden administration for mishandling the military withdraw just end this deadline. >> go allow our military, our special operators that are in kabul right now to go into the
3:03 pm
city and go out in the hinterlands and bring americans home. but illinois senator durbin says the attack is a reminder that pushing back the deadline is a dangerous prospect to some extent. >> on the taliban's promises that they will keep us safe during this process. and i think that is what is motivating president biden stick with original timetable. pentagon officials say there was clearly a failure because the attackers passed through several checkpoints controlled by the taliban or afghan forces before reaching the airport gates and u.s. troops. >> i was at and alexandra limon reporting for us. but much more on this as we continue our coverage. right now because we spoke with bay area. congressman john garamendi earlier today. he serves on the armed forces committee. and according to the congressman, these attacks were anticipated, but there was hope that they would not be carried out. he also says he does not believe anyone
3:04 pm
expected the total collapse of the afghan government. >> fact of the matter is there was no government has taliban simply walked in. totally and prepared and. in no position to control the city of some 4 billion people. our goal is a very dangerous place. we do when the afghan government collapsed was dangerous before that the suicide bomb bombings. >> we're. >> taking place on a rather regular basis in kabul over the last 3, 4, the to that the tragic deaths of. hundreds of people. >> representative, you're monday's interview first aired live on our digital streaming app kron on. you can watch the entire interview right now on that streaming service. the taliban is not in control. and regardless of who is responsible for the blood. the terror attacks in kabul. we can expect some more of the same. so says a south bay educator and terror expert
3:05 pm
with firsthand experience in afghanistan. he spoke with kron four's rob fladeboe who brings us this report. >> and so we could be isis k or it could be another faction within the taliban san jose state political science professor doctor leonard lira says there is no doubt the deadly bombings in afghanistan are acts of terror and terror is almost always politically motivated. he says. >> and there was a statement that was sent in this attack and were claims responsibility for it is probably going to be saying that we have the power to act. >> whenever we want wherever we want. therefore we need to be a force to be reckoned with when we start to figure out who's going lead afghanistan at americans depart, a former u.s. army strategist in the war on terror serving in both afghanistan and iraq. >> doctor leonard says the bombings are an indication of just how tenuous to hold the taliban has on power is the u.s. pulls out. i think the bigger indicator of how much
3:06 pm
lack of control the taleban really by that. i mean that >> we're working with the u.s. help us evacuate by the 31st was not the 31st yet and so. they want to be able to hold us forward and want to be able hold them to their word and it doesn't look like they're able to hold their and bargain either. and so it looks like. was a terrorist attack and looks like it was probably a faction that so trying to vie for control as they stuff their government talked earlier expects more acts of terror to follow as rival factions compete for power. >> complicating evacuation efforts and putting more troops and american allies at risk. it definitely raises the bar and increases the risk for our our troops that are on the ground the allied troops are there as well trying to. >> evacuate american citizens and their national citizens.

3:31 pm
senior editor at the washington post. thank you so much for your time this afternoon. it's good to be with you. can you just give us your reaction to the president's address. >> well, the president, the is in his element when these kinds of tragedies occur he's able to referred to his own personal his own son's experience in the military and he does sooner very emotionally affecting way that this is a very rough day for any administration goes through a terrorist attack like this and he determined to strike back at those responsible for the attack and get the sherman just as much to complete the withdrawal of american forces in americans in afghanistan in the next 4 so what one might school. is there a contradiction there? can you effectively go at the people who committed this crime. if you're withdrawing from the country and that's the political debate that we're going to have in the coming days. >> so the president was asked this during the this deadline
3:32 pm
that's been set of the end of the month. this is still going to stick with that. as far as withdrawing troops and withdrawing americans. and he said if you say you're going to do it, you're going to do it unless something exceptional happens. this doesn't classify as something that's exceptional. >> well, certainly is exceptional. however, president pointed out correctly that to the alleged perpetrators of this attack are not that that old on as the president's that are bad guys, but they're different. bad guys and the bad guys who did explosions? the bombs in kabul word isis k, which is extremist group that is actually a poster that all of 't want to get into the difficult position going after the wrong culprits. so there are those who said that that was part of the problem going into afghanistan first so in the end, i what he's trying to do is a little bit of cake. have his cake and eat it go ahead
3:33 pm
with withdrawal continues to defend his decision to do the withdrawal in this fashion even as he shows that he's going to be tough and going to hold these people to account for these crimes that took so many american lives and isis k is how is that different from just isis. isis kz. it's a regional group of based in. afghanistan is is but in some ways more extreme and certainly we're given to this route terrorism, the toe and claims to be at this but what we do know is this is a group that is opposed to tell them that wanted at least has told the biden administration that they intend to cooperate. with the u.s. and getting its forces out safely. and in the presence of toll was also been cooperative in helping to evacuate some of the people to the americans and afghans who have helped americans in this rush to leave the country. >> so as of now, the president said he's not going to be
3:34 pm
putting more troops in afghanistan to sort of speed up or cleanup. this evacuation process. but at the same time he said for the terrorist group isis k that's responsible. we will hunt you down and make you pay. what does that look like. >> well, that's a good if if you go back to the example we've seen in the previous 3 administrations. there certainly has been no hesitation to go after using drones we long forces without committing ground it does not sound like the president is at given to the idea of committing ground troops to afghanistan. so one could expect that through some combination air power that there would be an effort to identify those responsible and take them out. that's been the pattern of american since the beginning of the war on but it does. this is a president was very low to recommit to
3:35 pm
putting ground troops in a place like afghanistan where yet again today he explained why american interests there are quite minimal. >> it has been chaotic and deadly this evacuation out of afghanistan. what do the next few days look like as we hit that august 31st deadline. >> well, both the president and the top leaders in the pentagon have said today repeatedly that they expect there will be more such attacks will be successful or not. obviously can't but they obviously have saying isis k or other terrorist groups are going to try this again where and don't know if they have strong indications of that. but they are expecting something. and so that has to be weighed against the continuing effort to remove americans and helpful afghans from the country and that process continued today the president said that the last 12 hundreds if not thousands more afghans were able to be pulled out by the united states and the flow of the
3:36 pm
afghans to the united states now over a 100,000 people. so the biden administration to be more successful than they even predicted they might be in those who helped us out of the country away from possible retribution by the toll. >> are we safe here in the united states. >> it's always the ultimate question that's a question that got us involved in afghanistan in the first place. this like the last 2 says that we don't need to be there in order to be safe been repeatedly said taking out o-cedar leadership taking out bin made us safer from that group. but the president was very careful to say that there are continuing to terrorist threats from many countries around the world, including because he said civil closer to us than afghanistan and so this is remains a dangerous world and one which at least
3:37 pm
islamist are somewhat in bold and certainly by the fact big people who they align themselves with have chased the united states from afghanistan and afghanistan. is now run by a group that we share some of their values, namely that all >> marc fisher with the washington post, thank you so much for joining us here on kron, 4 news at 3 today. good to be with. we'll go now to the east bay and afghan refugees are collecting donations to help those who've been forced to leave their country with just the clothes on their backs. kron four's. we've got reports of from hayward where the afghan community is stepping up to help their own. >> time is of the essence of ghani's seeking asylum in the bay area need help. and an olive branch has been extended in hayward my can my people in this situation especially since belt. he dee dee and her family were in the same position 35 years ago. people forced to flee their home
