President Biden made his first comments since the deadly airport attacks in Afghanistan.
“We will not forgive, we will not forget, we will hunt you down and make you pay.”
Biden blames Islamic extremists and vows to avenge the deaths.
“I’ve also ordered my commanders to develop operational plans to strike Isis key assets, leadership, and facilities,” he said. “We will respond with force and precision at our time at a place we choose in a moment of our choosing.”
But he didn’t provide many details on what military presence the US would have in Afghanistan following the withdrawal.
“I’ve instructed the military whatever they need – if they need additional force, I will grant it,” he said.
Biden says the evacuation of Americans and Afghans from Kabul will continue.
