5 Dead at Kabul Airport as US Troops Open Fire, Cause Stampede

Not clear if the dead were trampled or shot


U.S. forces fired in the air at Kabul’s airport on Monday to prevent hundreds of civilians running onto the tarmac, a U.S. official said.

“The crowd was out of control,” the official told Reuters by phone. “The firing was only done to defuse the chaos.”


At least five people were killed in Kabul airport as hundreds of people tried to forcibly enter planes leaving the Afghan capital, witnesses told Reuters.

One witness said he had seen the bodies of five people being taken to a vehicle. Another witness said it was not clear whether the victims were killed by gunshots or in a stampede.

Officials were not immediately available to comment on the deaths.

    As the ship sinks, the rats will try any way to escape…..if these people had been working for the future of Afghanistan, and not been traitors, they wouldn’t be fleeing……..absolutely no sympathy

    Meanwhile partying away at the biggest taxpayer funded 60th bday celebrations in Marthas Vinyard, the notorious BIG O had 300 of his sophisticated homies party for 5 days straight. Michelle had 5 costume changes and the notorious BIG O wore his cool hawaien shirt. All in all things turned out very well for THE PROJECT FOR A NEW AMERICA, typo, NEW AFGHANIPLANY . All sophisticated homies walked away with awesome profits. Albright, Wolfawitz, Krystal, Kagan, Wasserstrin, Schummer, Fiensteen (she is exceptionally sophisticated), Katz, Summers (probably a ) Cohen (there somewhere !) Bolton, Clinton, Rubin, Chertoff, Kerry (the climate szar flew in his own private jetplane to the notorious BIG Os party). No wonder they had a reason to partay. Josef Biden was busy invading Syria and was a no show but Blinken sent his love.
