‘We will not be deterred’: Biden says US evacuation to continue after Kabul airport blasts despite potential further attacks

Addressing the deadly bombings at the Kabul airport, US President Joe Biden vowed retaliation against ISIS and said that the US won’t stop the evacuation, while noting that attacks are likely to continue “beyond today.”

After acknowledging the deaths of 12 US service members and giving his condolences to families of the slain, Biden vowed retaliation against those responsible for both of Thursday's moments. Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) has taken credit for the attacks.

"To those who carried out his attack...we will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay," Biden said, not specifying when or how a retaliatory attack would be carried out, but saying officials have a "good idea" of who ordered the bombings.

We will not be deterred by terrorists, we will not let them stop our mission, we will continue the evacuation
