Former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta said that American forces will have to return to Afghanistan despite Biden’s insistence that he will be withdrawing all troops by August 31st.

Panetta made his comments on CNN on Friday, saying that “bottom line is that our work is not done in Afghanistan.”

“I know we’ll be removing our troops by a certain date, but the bottom line is our work is not done. We’re going to have to go after ISIS. I’m glad the president said that we’re going to hunt them down and make them pay a price for what they did in killing our warriors and we should. We’re going to have to go back in to get ISIS,” he said.

“We’re probably going to go have to go back in when al-Qaida resurrects itself as they will with this Taliban. They’ve gave safe haven to al-Qaida before. They’ll probably do it again,” Panetta said.

A Border Patrol agent was killed overnight while in the line of duty patrolling the border. “The agent was patrolling the international boundary at approximately 1 a.m. on an all-terrain vehicle and tracking a group of individuals which illegally crossed the border when he was involved in an accident near Mission, Texas,” acting CBP Commissioner Troy Miller announced.

In an email, Miller wrote “Acting Deputy Commissioner [Benjamine] Huffman, Chief [Raul] Ortiz and I regret to inform you of the passing of a Border Patrol agent assigned the McAllen Station this morning.”

“He was found unresponsive by fellow agents who immediately initiated life-saving efforts and requested emergency medical services. The agent was taken to an area hospital by ambulance where he later passed away. Additional information will be shared when available,” the email continued.

“The death of an agent while performing their duties and securing our borders is a loss that is felt throughout our agency and our nation,” Miller concluded.

Just The News writes:

The nation has witnessed an unprecedented surge in illegal migration the past few years, with roughly 2.4 million crossing the border in fiscal year 2022 and nearly 4 million doing so since President Joe Biden took office. With that has come record drug trafficking operations, including increasingly large shipments of the highly potent narcotic fentanyl.

Border authorities are unable to keep up with the rise in traffic, prompting the Biden administration to turn to other federal agencies for extra manpower. The Department of Homeland Security has attempted to redeploy air marshals to the southern border to assist with the crisis, but has faced resistance from the agency, with many vowing to refuse the order at the risk of termination.
