Remains of 13 Service Members Slaughtered in Kabul Return Back to US – But No Word if Joe Biden Will Meet Plane

The remains of 13 American heroes are on their way back to Dover Air Force Base. Twelve US Marines, a Navy corpsman, US Army Soldier, and at least 160 Afghans were murdered by an Islamist suicide bomber in Kabul on Thursday.

These 13 members of the Marines, Army and Navy were killed by a suicide bomber outside the Kabul Airport.

The White House declined to confirm if Joe Biden will meet the heroes when their plane lands at Dover Air Base.

The Daily Mail reported:

The remains of the 13 US troops killed in an ISIS-K suicide blast are currently en route to Dover Air Force Base for dignified transfer, according to the Pentagon.

‘The remains of the 13 individuals who were killed are on their way back to the United States, but I am not at liberty to give you their precise arrival,’ Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said on Saturday.

Kirby declined to confirm whether President Joe Biden would attend the dignified transfer at the base in Delaware, his home state, which is the domestic intake point for US military fatalities abroad.

When asked on Friday if Biden would be present at Dover, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said: ‘he would consider and want to be a part of any means of honoring the lives that were lost.’
