📡U.S. Sees "Persistent” Credible Threat of ISIS Terror Attack Against Kabul Airport @G3News: President Biden says that the US has made a number of changes in and around the airport in the Afghan capital of Kabul, with an eye both toward easing the refugee flight from the country, and more importantly, trying to maintain security in the face of a “real" and "persistent” threat of an ISIS terror attack. Officials aren’t detailing the nature of the threats, but are looking to extend the safe zones and provide alternate routes to the airport. The implication of some of the warnings is that the big threat is getting attacked outside the airport along the routes. The Pentagon further said that they believe ISIS-K poses a threat to attack the airport itself, albeit not an immediate threat. Car bombs, suicide bombs, and mortar attacks are all a possibility. 🔗SOURCE (https://news.antiwar.com/2021/08/22/us-sees-credible-isis-threat-against-kabul-airport/)

"Unbelievable": At Least 16 Dead, 51 Missing in Tennessee Flooding After Record Rainfall 📡@G3News: At least 16 people are dead and 51 are missing after middle Tennessee was hit with record rainfall Friday into Saturday morning. The flooding in the region caused cars to be tossed like toys and houses ripped off their foundations. In Humphreys County, 10 were killed and about 40 people remain missing, according to Rob Edwards, chief deputy with the Humphreys County Sheriff's Office. A preliminary rainfall total of 17.02 inches was measured at McEwen, Tennessee, Saturday, which would break the all-time 24 hour rainfall record for the state of Tennessee. The old record was 13.06 inches, recorded in Milan on Sept. 13, 1982. "We have power outages all over the area," Edwards said. "Complicating issues is the loss of all cell phone coverage from the major carriers. They are bringing in portable units to assist with communications. We have lost a lot of roads both rural and major highways. In my 28 years it's the worst I've ever seen it." 🔗SOURCE (https://abcnews.go.com/US/10-dead-dozens-missing-unbelievable-tennessee-flooding/story?id=79584226)

U.S. Orders Commercial Planes to Help Move Afghanistan Evacuees 📡@G3News: The United States on Sunday (Aug. 22) ordered six commercial airlines to help transport people after their evacuation from Afghanistan as Washington sought to step up the pace of departures of Americans and at-risk Afghans from Kabul. The Pentagon said it called up 18 commercial aircraft from United Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air and others to carry people from temporary locations after they landed from Afghanistan. The move highlights the difficulty Washington is having in carrying out the evacuations following the Taliban's swift takeover, marking only the third time the U.S. military has employed civilian aircraft. Thousands of people remained outside the Kabul international airport on Sunday hoping to be evacuated. 🔗SOURCE (https://www.reuters.com/world/biden-administration-use-commercial-airlines-carry-afghan-evacuees-2021-08-22/)
