The suicide bombing in Kabul that killed 13 US service members and over 170 Afghans in August was 'not preventable,' the Pentagon announced on Friday following a probe into the attack. The terror attack, which ISIS claimed responsibility for, occurred in the early morning hours of August 26, during the frenzied evacuation near the US embassy. 'Based on our investigation at the tactical level, this was not preventable,' General Lance Curtis said during a briefing Friday. 'And the leaders on the ground followed the proper measures. And any time there was an imminent threat warning they followed the proper procedures: they lowered their profile, they sought cover and, at times,


Medals Milley the clown and his comedy troupe are without a trace of shame. Not preventable at all for a Pentagon focused on LGBTQ+ rights and pulling the most fantastically stupid withdrawal in US history, leaving $83 billion dollars' worth of weaponry behind for use by the Taliban, who emerged victorious after 20 years of war against the greatest military in the history of the world (just ask them).

Since they didn’t know what they were doing until the day before this all began, I’m not surprised it went as badly as it did. These incompetent boobs screwed up. The blood is on this administrations hands and the woke generals who are more worried about maternity flight suits and inclusivity than our people who are on the ground. These guys are a joke, but it’s not the least bit funny. It’s pathetic. An embarrassment.

He very carefully chose his word. Not preventable "at the tactical level". In other words, the total strategic failure and lack of planning resulted in an untenable tactical situation guaranteed to fet Americans killed. Read between the lines. It's right there in plain English.

It’s been hell in Harlem—the backyard of accused soft-on-crime Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg. In the past few days alone, the storied neighborhood has seen a series of high-profile crimes, including an off-duty cop shot, a man pummeled and run over by a car in a brutal gang assault and a city transit bus full of passengers hit by a stray bullet in broad daylight. And those crimes come on the heels of the shooting deaths of two young NYPD cops in Harlem late last month. Crime is up nearly 30 percent so far this year in the area.

Times Square, Manhattan—Activists and elected officials gathered in Times Square on Monday to rally in support of legislation that they say would ensure Black and brown women get life-saving care during pregnancy and after childbirth. “In 2022 Black and Brown women are dying simply because of the color of their skin,” Jumaane Williams, the New York City Public Advocate, said. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Black women are three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related deaths compared to White women. The disparity is even wider in New York City with Black women eight times more likely to die than their White counterparts.

The Justice Department says it may be open to allowing safe injection sites—places where people can use heroin and other narcotics with protections against fatal overdoses—a year after winning a major court battle against their opening. The department said it's 'evaluating' such facilities and talking to regulators about 'appropriate guardrails' in response to questions from the Associated Press. The position is a drastic change from its stance in the Trump administration, when prosecutors fought vigorously against a plan to open a safe consumption site in Philadelphia.(Snip)But the Supreme Court declined to take the case in October.

Washington—A White House review found credible evidence that top scientist Dr. Eric Lander violated its “Safe and Respectful Workplace Policy,” but the administration plans to keep him on the job after giving him counseling. An internal review last year, prompted by a workplace complaint, found evidence that Lander, the director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy and science adviser to President Biden, bullied staffers and treated them disrespectfully. That put him at odds with Biden‘s day-one directive that he expected “honesty and decency” from all who worked for his administration and would fire anyone who shows disrespect to others “on the spot.”

Kaplan instructed employees to greet the black guests “lovingly and intentionally.” He says employees ordinarily treat all guests this way but instructed them “to make an even greater effort” with the black ones. He goes on to tell employees the reason for this special effort for blacks.
