White House admits concern over ‘active’ ISIS-K threat in Afghanistan


The Biden administration is concerned about “active” threats from the terror group ISIS-K as it seeks to bring home dozens of American citizens who were left behind in Afghanistan by President Biden’s military withdrawal earlier this week, White House press secretary Jen Psaki acknowledged Thursday.

On Wednesday, State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters the number of US passport holders stuck in Taliban-controlled territory is “likely closer to 100, perhaps considerably closer to 100” after Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken estimated earlier this week that between 100 and 200 Americans remained in Afghanistan.

Psaki claimed Thursday that the State Department is “in close touch” with those left behind and “working in close coordination with them to determine how they can leave the country [or] if they’ve left the country.” The press secretary then threw cold water on the idea that chartered planes could be used to get the remaining Americans out of the country.
