Biden responds to the deadly bombing at the Kabul airport: 'We will not forgive. We will not forget.'
President Joe Biden addressed the American people hours after an ISIS-K terror attack just outside the Kabul airport in Afghanistan, making a simple promise to those who slaughtered U.S. Forces: "We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay."
In a rare moment President Biden quoted the Bible, promising violence on those responsible for the deaths of 12 U.S. service members, 15 wounded, and countless civilians who were also killed and wounded.
President Biden began his address expressing empathy for those who were killed, spending several minutes as Consoler in Chief, but moved into his Commander in Chief role, promising destruction "at a time and place of our choosing."
