ISIS-K Bomber That Killed 13 U.S. Servicemen Was Released From U.S. Base During Withdrawal

According to a statement by Representative Calvert, the ISIS-K suicide bomber responsible for the deaths of 13 U.S. servicemen and women was released from a U.S. airbase. Rep. Calvert says in a statement that Abdul Rehman Al-Loghri was detained at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan and was set free during the U.S. withdrawal.

After his release, Loghri detonated a suicide bomb outside of Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport in the final days of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan claiming the lives of innocent soldiers and civilians.

Rep. Calvert’s statement on the ISIS-K Bomber via The Daily Wire:

U.S. national security officials have now confirmed to me the reports that the August 26th Kabul bomber was a known ISIS-K terrorist that was previously detained at the Bagram prison and was released along with thousands of others just days before the deadly attack.

President Biden’s disastrous handling of our withdrawal from Afghanistan led to a series of events that culminated with the tragic loss of life on August 26th outside of the Kabul airport. Thirteen Americans, including one of my constituents, were killed because of the poor judgement and execution of our troop withdrawal. The Biden Administration needs to explain why these prisoners were not transferred and secured at another location. Those responsible for these grave errors not only put our brave service members in harm’s way but have now – by our military’s own admission – placed Americans in greater danger than they were before.

The Daily Wire previously reported that after the Taliban’s takeover many dangerous prisoners were released into the country.

The Taliban have reportedly released thousands of prisoners that were held at Bagram, including members of al Qaeda, the terror group that carried out the 9-11 attacks and prompted the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in 2001. Bagram was under control of the U.S. military for roughly two decades before leaving it in control of the Afghan military in July as the U.S. pulled out of Afghanistan.

“The Taliban claims it overran Bagram Air Base and freed prisoners. Many high-value detainees were located there, including members of Al Qaeda. This will reverberate for years to come,” said Bill Roggio, Long War Journal editor, and terror analyst.

  1. Biden administration = NOTHING but pure corruption along with plausible deniability – blame and incompetence – BUT absolutely NO ACCOUNTABILITY.

    1. Really, the man has been out of office for 7 months and everything is still his fault.

      Try harder.

      Under POTUS Trump, no service members died for the last 18 months of his term. Biden gets in and we are no longer Energy Providers, we are now energy dependent. We had secure borders, now we have 100,000 illegal entrants every month. I could go on but you probably quit reading at “Try Harder”.

  2. Isn’t this ironic, the white-house and the fake press have no clue what a “SUICIDE BOMBER” is, these bastards get even dumber, the deeper you go into Biden’s layers of incompetent support staff!!
