(AbsoluteNews.com) – When President Joe Biden pulled the troops out of Afghanistan, he said America would continue fighting terrorism in that country. The new Taliban government has not agreed to allow the US to carry out its plan. Now, a Pentagon official is warning the violence could spread to American soil.
On Tuesday, October 26, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Jack Reed (D-RI) asked Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Colin Kahl if he believed there’d be a “resurgence of international terrorism” from the region in the next three years. The Pentagon official said he believes it depends on the terrorist group. He went on to say the intelligence community agrees that al-Qaeda and ISIS-K are going to continue carrying out attacks, including against the US.
Currently, Kahl says neither organization has the ability to hit American soil but ISIS-K could be able to do that in 6 to 12 months, while it might take al-Qaeda up to two years.
🚨🚨: DOD policy chief Colin Kahl just told Congress that ISIS-K could have the ability to launch terror attacks on the U.S. in as little as 6 months.

The possibility of either group carrying out an attack on American soil is frightening. The last time al-Qaeda attacked the mainland, 2,977 people died. Meanwhile, ISIS-K detonated a bomb that claimed the lives of 13 US service members in Afghanistan in August. The question now is: what are Biden and his administration doing to prevent an attack from happening?
