Courage and Cowardice: As Team Biden Stumbles, The Son of A True Leader Steps Up
“Been a tough day.” Those were the opening words of an official statement by former Vice President Joseph R. Biden. Tough is an understatement. On August 26th, 2021, there were two suicide bomber attacks outside of the Hamid Karzai International Airport, that resulted in the death of thirteen (1) American service members, and another eighteen being wounded. The oldest of those killed was thirty-one (2) years old. Not since the tragic events of Operation Red-Wing (3) in 2005, popularized in the book Lone Survivor, has there been such a loss of American life. At least sixty (4) Afghani’s have also died as a result of the cowardly attack. The group that claimed responsibility for this attack is an offshoot of the decimated Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). They call themselves ISIS-K, (5) the K stands for Khorasan, a region that is split between Iran and Afghanistan.
