The fathers of the deceased marines responded after the ISIS-K suicide bomb on Thursday in Kabul that claimed the lives of 13 US troops and 170 others. Now the Pentagon has warned that another attack is likely. The fathers of two of the US marines killed in the bomb attack on airport have blamed the US President for their deaths.

They claimed he has turned his back on the troops on the ground with his rushed evacuation attempt before the August 31 deadline to fully leave Afghanistan that made them sitting ducks for ISIS-K.

The bomb attack in Kabul killed 13 US troops alongside 170 Afghans at the airport in Kabul.

The explosion was caused when a single suicide bomber detonated his vest.

Some of the names of the US casualties were Navy medic Max Soviak, Army Staff Sgt Ryan Knauss, and Marines Hunter Lopez, Rylee McCollum, David Lee Espinoza, Kareem Nikoui, Jared Schmitz, Daegan Page, Taylor Hoover, Humberto Sanchez and an unnamed special forces soldier.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Rylee McCollum’s wrestling coach claimed that “heads should roll” after the suicide attack.

The coach, called Ben Arlotta, fumed and blamed the Biden administration for putting soldiers in an unnecessarily dangerous position.

He added: “It’s a junk show, an absolute junk show.

“Not just for Rylee but for every serviceman and woman over there.

“They were put in a very terrible spot.

“In my opinion, this entire circumstance has been mismanaged from every level.

“The only thing I can hope for is that accountability isn’t forgotten.

“Because for the 13 men who were killed yesterday, heads need to roll for the way things have gone.”

The father of marine Kareem Nikoui spoke to The Daily Beast and said: “They sent my son over there as a paper pusher and then had the Taliban outside providing security.

“I blame my own military leaders.

“Biden turned his back on him.

“That’s it.”

Us marine Jared Schmitz’s father said: “Be afraid of our leadership or lack thereof.

“Pray every day for the soldiers that are putting their lives at risk, doing what they love which is protecting all of us.”

After the ISIS-K terror attack, Mr Biden made a pledge to the perpetrators and said “we will hunt you down and make you pay”.
