'He does not want them to live': Jen Psaki explains Biden's response to the terror attack in Kabul
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki used Fox News reporter Peter Doocy to send a strong message to the ISIS-K terrorists who slaughtered 13 U.S. service members in a suicide bomb attack that has now killed a total of more than 170 people.
"When the President says, 'We will hunt you down and make you pay,' what does that look like?" Doocy asked Psaki on Friday. "Is he going to order a mission to kill the people responsible, or would he be satisfied if they are captured and prosecuted?"
Psaki did not hesitate in her response: "I think he made clear yesterday that he does not want them to live on the earth anymore."
The administration has deftly turned Doocy's grandstanding into a direct channel to deliver its message to Fox News viewers, as President Biden did on Thursday.
