US Embassy in Afghanistan tells citizens to stay away from Kabul airport

US Embassy in Afghanistan tells citizens to stay away from Kabul airport | 21 Aug 2021 | American citizens in Afghanistan should stay away from the international airport in Kabul, the U.S. Embassy now says. The development directly contradicts Joe Biden's insistence Friday that Americans could proceed to the airport freely from the Afghan capital and that an "agreement" with the Taliban had been reached over the issue. "Because of potential security threats outside the gates at the Kabul airport, we are advising U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to the airport and to avoid airport gates at this time," according to a Saturday security alert from the embassy.

ISIS terror threat forces US military to establish alternate routes to Kabul airport | 21 Aug 2021 | The US military is establishing "alternative routes" to Kabul airport because of a threat the terror group ISIS-K [I-CIA-SIS-K] poses to the airport and its surroundings, as Joe Biden met with senior officials Saturday to discuss the security situation in Afghanistan and counter-terrorism operations against the Islamic State offshoot. "There is a strong possibility ISIS-K is trying to carry off an attack at the airport," a US defense official told CNN. A senior diplomat in Kabul said they are aware of a credible but not immediate threat by Islamic State against Americans at Hamid Karzai International Airport. Two US defense officials described the military effort to establish "alternative routes" for people to get to Kabul airport and its access gates, with one saying these new routes will be available to Americans, third party nationals and qualified Afghans.

FBI finds scant evidence U.S. Capitol attack was coordinated - sources | 20 Aug 2021 | The FBI has found scant evidence that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the [fraudulent] presidential election result, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.

"Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases," said a former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation.

Judge Blocks Biden Administration From Limiting Arrests of Illegal Immigrants

Judge Blocks Biden Administration From Limiting Arrests of Illegal Immigrants | 19 Aug 2021 | Joe Biden’s administration cannot, for now, curtail arrests of illegal immigrants, a federal judge ruled on Thursday, delivering another setback to the White House's immigration agenda. U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, a Trump nominee, granted a preliminary injunction sought by the states of Texas and Louisiana against two memorandums issued by Biden administration officials earlier this year that sought to "prioritize" certain categories of illegal immigrants. The case involves an immigration law provision that stipulates that illegal immigrants who had committed crimes shall be taken into federal custody after they're released, but the Biden administration's memos attempted to direct Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) resources to detain illegal aliens based on the nature of the crime. Texas and Louisiana argued that Biden's memo would prevent ICE agents from arresting and deporting other illegal aliens who had a criminal history... The two states have seen rising costs related to detention facilities and an increase in crimes traceable to the memos, Tipton wrote in the 160-page order.

The classified cable represents the clearest evidence yet that the administration had been warned by its own officials on the ground that the Taliban's advance was imminent and Afghanistan's military may be unable to stop it. The cable, sent via the State Department's confidential dissent channel, warned of rapid territorial gains by the Taliban and the subsequent collapse of Afghan security forces, and offered recommendations on ways to mitigate the crisis and speed up an evacuation, the two people said.

Facebook Removes Campaign Ad Over Link to Fox News

Facebook Removes Campaign Ad Over Link to Fox News | 17 Aug 2021 | Facebook on Monday removed a campaign ad that criticized Joe Biden's Afghanistan policy, suggesting the post violated Facebook rules by linking to a Fox News article.
