The mother of a U.S. soldier killed at the Kabul airport last week placed blame on the Biden administration for the deaths of her son and twelve other service members in an attack by ISIS-K.

Paula Knauss, mother of 23-year-old army staff sergeant Ryan Knauss, lamented the attack in an interview on Fox News’s The Ingraham Angle on Tuesday evening.

“There should have been a better way of helping our armed branches get those people who are American out safely, and still lose no man or woman in uniform or in Afghanistan,” Knauss said. “It should never have happened the way it did. Who is accountable for this? Who will stand up and say that they will be accountable for the death of 13 young men and women?”

Knauss also questioned why the Biden administration and military concentrated the last U.S. forces in Afghanistan at the Kabul airport, where crowds of people thronged the gates and Taliban fighters attempted to secure the area during the evacuation. In addition to the ISIS-K attack, the airport was targeted with rocket fire earlier this week, with a missile defense system shooting down incoming rockets.
