More fatalities, more blood on the hands of the Biden administration after an attempt to strike ISIS-K terrorists failed, resulting in the deaths of innocent Afghani women and children.
Biden ordered a strike this weekend on what was said to be a vehicle carrying top ISIS-K terrorist leaders. The weapon used in the strike was reportedly the highest octane non-nuclear missile in the U.S. military arsenal.
A special Hellfire missile – nicknamed “the flying Ginsu,” which uses blades instead of explosives to limit damage – was deployed to strike ISIS-K targets in Afghanistan, officials revealed. But reports from the ground are painting a different picture.
The Pentagon reported two targets were killed and a third individual was injured, but it declined to release the names of them.
A Reaper drone, deployed from a location in the Persian Gulf, dropped the R9X missile in retaliation to this week’s suicide bombing at the gate of the Kabul airport, which killed 13 U.S. service members and almost 200 Afghan civilians.
The R9X does not explode, instead releasing six large blades at the last second to shred the target of the strike, with the hope of minimizing civilian casualties.

A neighbor at the Nangarhar, Rahamunullah, strike site in eastern Afghanistan contradicted the Pentagon report on the number of deaths, claiming three people were killed and four others wounded, according to the Journal.

A video posted by the Journal showed the damage of the strike, including a small blast hole outside the home, a burnt rickshaw vehicle, windows blown out, walls marked by shrapnel, and belongings scattered around the home.
We hit a vehicle via airstrike in Kabul earlier near airport. Pentagon says we’re confident “we successfully hit the target”(ISIS-K militant).
But no one wants to talk about the innocent child that died in the process. Biden is a disaster.pic.twitter.com/hm0onXkOIT

The R9X missile was a secret weapon until a Journal report in 2019, but the U.S. government still has not publicly acknowledged its existence.
The R9X has been reported to have been used to strike other al-Qaida and military targets in Yemen and Syria over the past few years.
Chaos and confusion, death and destruction continue to overwhelm the people of Afghanistan. American citizens remain stranded and our allies in the region face brutal retaliation from the Taliban. Still, the Biden administration has done little — and continues to do little — to rectify the situation, save bombing random targets with reckless abandon.
The questions remains: when will Biden resign or face impeachment for his crimes? When will his Deep State defense officials have to pay for the innocent lives they’ve sacrificed?
