BREAKING: American Univ. in Kabul under attack; hospital official says at least 1 dead, 14 wounded; students tweeting they’re trapped

by FOXNews.com  |  published on August 24, 2016


DEVELOPING: At least one student died and 14 other people were hurt Wednesday after a “complex attack” involving bombs and gunfire at American University of Afghanistan in Kabul, police and the head of the city’s hospitals reported.

Reporters in the area said teachers and hundreds of students took cover in classrooms and safe rooms as police and special forces surrounded the campus on the western outskirts of Afghanistan’s capital city. A car bomb had exploded outside a school for the blind next door before at least one attacker fired at the university campus from that school building, a police officer at the scene told The New York Times.

The U.S. military was assisting Afghan forces who responded to the attack, U.S. Army Colonel Michael T. Lawhorn told Fox News. “These advisors are not taking a combat role, but advising their Afghan counterparts.”

Associated Press photographer Massoud Hossaini said he was in a classroom with 15 students when he heard an explosion on the southern flank of the campus. “I went to the window to see what was going on, and I saw a person in normal clothes outside. He shot at me and shattered the glass,” Hossaini said, adding that he fell on the glass and cut his hands. He also tweeted: “Help we are stuck inside AUAF and shooting flollowed by Explo this maybe my last tweets”

The students then barricaded themselves into the classroom, pushing chairs and desks against the door, and staying on the floor. Hossaini and about nine students managed to escape from the campus through a northern emergency gate. “As we were running I saw someone lying on the ground face down, they looked like they had been shot in the back,” he said.

    Call the ole ugly commie whore “Hillary the Pillory” to the rescue – or is that barbeque? “TRANFORMED & TRANSGENDERED” AMERIKA just can’t seem to grasp that we have a Muslim-Marxist jihadist in the “Outhouse” and he is waging jihad against “US” as he makes us his caliphate! Baa, baa, baa, we want Obaa-baa-ma bleat his mentally disordered and suicidal useful idiotic supporters and his State-run, fifth column propagandists! He is laughing all the way to the golf course as Americans continue to be murdered by his homies – Islamic terrorists! FUK’N UNBELIEVABLE!

  • Discusted

    Do not bother calling for help from Obama he is a Fkin Muslim and does not give a dam !

  • rwendling70

    Call Hillary, she’ll get right on the case…after she has her nap while staff determine if it’s a rumor or, maybe, a video! We CAN be sure if one thing: She’ll be no better than she was in 2012.

  • Mike Tanco

    This is like our welfare system, the government gives and the takers keep taking giving nothing back and believing it’s what they deserve.
    Maybe one day our government will realize they can’t save the entire world and eventually tax payers get tired of being used.

  • oldschoolpatriot

    Why is there an “American University” anywhere near Afghanistan?

    • I Seigel

      Do you have any problems with the American University in Cairo? How about the one in Beirut? The one in Afghanistan opened in 2005. Laura Bush visited there and announced a major grant. Once again, your ideology and bias blind you to the simple truths.

  • Marilynn Reeves

    Why are we not sending in troops to get these people out?

    • oldschoolpatriot

      Maybe we should find out why they were there in the first place. What does an American student have to do with Afghanistan? Close the school. It is nothing but bait.

      • I Seigel

        Marilyn and you must have been hatched from the same imbecile incubator.

    • Bill

      And take a chance of hurting some of Obummers most beloved sons, and I don’t mean any one in the college!

  • Christopher Irvin

    You;ll notice there have been no photos of Clinton or Obama int he news today. I’ll bet they are the ones who attacked the American University. Obama came to my house and took my gun so he could go shot up American University in Afghanistan.

    I REFUSE TO GIVE A DIME TO THE RNC. THEY ARE TRAITORS! I GIVE DIRECTLY TO INDIVIDUAL CONSERVATIVES. THEY HAVE PLENTY IN THEIR OWN CAMPAIGN COFFERS TO RE ELECT THEMSELVES. NO MORE RINOS… I AM VOTING FOR CARLOS BERUFF, A BUSINESS MAN RUNNING AGAINST MARCO RUBIO… PISS ON RINO RUBIO AND RYAN

    • C William Hanscom

      Sounds great ! One more vote for Hitlary.

      • Velma Saccone

        Why do you say that? Carlos is a Republican not a Dumbocrat and by voting for him does not indicate a vote for Killary.

        • DAY8293A

          Only another ignorant libtard democrat would think intelligent people would vote for krooked killary…

      • DAY8293A

        Sounds like you are smoking obammy weed…

    • Velma Saccone

      I’m voting for Carlos Beruff and for Donald Trump. I am sick of professional politicians who do not care about the people and our freedoms. I am not voting for anyone currently in office because most of them have been in DC much too long. We need term limits for all offices. And we sure as hell don’t need Killary in any office.

  • Not A Farmer

    Paul Ryan did a mass e-mailed wanting a donation for the
    RNC. Saying we need to beat
    Hillary. Well Paul Ryan and the other Rhino’s
    need to get on commercials and support Trump if they really want to stop
    Hillary from Getting the Presidency. Don’t
    ask the people who make $15,000 a year up to donate when they make
    $174,000-$234,000 a year and don’t openly support Trump. He’s a Hypocrite.

    Hillary Clinton will bring more terrorist to USA if elected President!

  • original ancestry

    Obama paying the salaries of terrorists. Unfit to command a dish washing crew let alone the US military or White House. FPOS.

  • Snoopy

    Why are you NOT taking “an active role”? There are Americans inside as I understand!

  • solog

    When you provide finances to an enemy, release top terrorists, provide them with access and weaponry and support them, believe as they do and allow them to do as they please this is what you get….division, destruction and death…..smh!

    • Retired

      Funny the American university has no name, could it be one the Clintons are involved in ?

      • Christopher Irvin

        It would almost have to be. Because the name American University would just be silly.

          • I Seigel

            So Smart Guy, why don’t you tell me how much she got from them? And give me your source, too, so I can make sure you’re dealing in facts.

            It was just published this last week. Look it up yourself.

            Amazing! You really got nothing. Probably like the vast majority of conservatives – no favts, just rumors and conspiracy theories.

            Clintons are thieves sanctioned by the Obama Administration….Less then 13 cents on every dollar they get goes to charity…Put her in jail and him in prison for raping women…

          • I Seigel

            Wrong statistic. Try again.

          • I Seigel

            The calculation is that, in 2013, 89 cents of every dollar went to supporting programs that fund. The 6 percent you mention is for grants they made to other charities. But they fund most projects directly, not thru other charities.

            Who’s raping woman?

          • 0331Tap

            You have bought there propaganda …Your facts are wrong…They are thieves…He is a rapist…She is a chronic liar…She will bow out of the election because of health and Biden will replace her…She is an elitist and liar…On her best day that is as good as she gets…

  • Dan

    Hmmm….Obama tells us the world has never been safer. ISIS is on the run. Compared to 8 years ago, the world loves the United States so says the liar-in-chief. The world is burning and Obama plays another round of golf. It’s going to be so nice when Donald Trump becomes President. We won’t have to belly ache anymore on these websites…..

    • Nellie McConnell

      Living close to borders has been a nightmare with drug gangs and terrors crossing our borders. Crime is up in all areas. Towns being taken over by drug gangs, home invasions, rape, kidnapping, murders, theft, one man died from being beaten during home invasion. News doesn’t tell the truth. Glad Trump is on border issues. American people need to know where we are with terrors. Obama and Hillary need to be in prison for what they have done to our country. Our country is being invaded be terrors through refugees and open borders. GOD HELP US SAVE OUR COUNTRY. VOTE TRUMP. OPEN MORE DOORS TO FIND OBAMA and HILLARY CORRUPTIONS.

      • oldschoolpatriot

        I hope you are contributing GENEROUSLY to his campaign, Nellie. Because if he gets in and stiffs you on all of his promises, which he would, I want you to feel some committment to getting even. If not, you should feel suckered for having contributed to a guy who isn’t even campaigning. So dig deep, Nellie. We all need YOUR committment.

    IS THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA HELPING IN THE POTENTIAL INVASION OF AMERICA.

    WHY HASN’T THE NEWS MEDIA SAID SOMETHING ABOUT OBAMA SWEARING A JUDGE IN UNDER SHEREE LAW,

    WHY WAS OBAMA ALLOWED TO SWEAR IN CAROLYN WALKER IN AS JUDGE IN THE 7TH MUNICIPAL DISTRICT IN BROOKLING USING THE QURAN. SHE SHOULD BE RECALLED IMMEDIATELLY.

    WHY ARE THEIR 5 MUSLIM CAMPS ONE AT FAIRFAX, FALLS CH, RED HOUSE, MEHERRIN, BETHANY VA. ARE THEY TO INVADE WASH.DC? YOU SHOULD FIND OUT.

    WHY IS THE TAX PAYER FORCED TO FEED AND CLOTH THE PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO KILL US.

    SINCE OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED, YOU CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE THAT WANT TO KILL US & TAKE ANY MILITARY BASE IN THIS COUNTRY.

    BETTER WAKE UP & ALLOW OUR TROOPS TO CARRY LOADED GUNS. TODAY OUR CAMPS ARE A FREE KILLING ZONE.

    WHY DO YOU THINK THE MUSLIM MAJOR KILLED SO MANY IN TEXAS & HE IS STILL LIVING???.WHY?

    I CALLED AND VERIFIED THE MUSLIM CAMP CLOSE TO FT. CAMPBELL & A LADY VERIFIED THE FEMA CAMP WITH ARMED GUARDS IN EAST KY. AND THE ONE IN SHAWNEE NATIONAL FORREST IN SOUTHERN ILL. FOR GODS SAKE AND OUR COUNTRY WAKE UP.

    WHY GIVE 5 TERRIOSTS FOR ONE TRAITOR. FOLKS IT GOES ON & ON, WAKE UP AMERICA.

    WHY GIVE 150 BILLION AND ANOTHER 400 MILLION TO IRAN TO FUND A HYDROGEN BOMB, AND TERRIOST?

    WHY IS OBAMA & HILLARY TRYING TO BRING IN 160 THOUSAND MUSLIMS?

    WHY TRY AND TAKE OUR GUNS

    WHY DID THEY TRY & BUY UP ALL AMM0

    WHY HAS OUR GOVERNMENT BUILT A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, SOME MORE THAN ONE.

    VOTE DONALD TRUMP TO STOP THIS INSANE DESTROYING OF AMERICA.

        You better get your head out of your butt and believe what Walter said because it is true. You need to start watching any news except the MSM because they are all Dumbocrats and think we are all stupid and will believe whatever lies they tell us.

      In Freely CO a few years ago the Muslim women were fired from Swift packing plant. They refused to wear uniforms and wanted to wear their traditional cover. Swift ended up selling plant to Brazil. The Muslims moved close to Fort Collins. Not good as we don’t know if they were women! Clinton passed exclusive orders in 2003 for bases to be gun free! Why? I believe that there is Terrors in every job in the USA so they can carry out the attacks.
      I knew 2 days after San Bernardino attack that these terrors were taken off watch list 2 months before. Why didn’t our government FBI KNOW THIS? Same with Orlando terrors attack?
      WE ARE IN FOR A BIG TERRORS ATTACK AND ITS GETTING WORSE AT BORDERS.
      WE NEED NATIONAL GUARD HELP ON BORDERS. THE KIDS CROSSING BORDERS AND TRANSPORTED TO OUR BASES? Age 14-18 AVERAGE.

          I think his facts are worse than his typing. It is an insane rambling of paranoia, lies and misrepresentations.

    • I Seigel

      How long can PTSD last, jerk wad? What do you mean that Obama swore in a judge to the 7th Municipal Court in Brooklyn with a Quran? Are you just plain lying, or just a plain idiot?!?! A Municipal Court is under City jurisdiction. A mayor or governor would do the swearing in. The federal government – the president – has absolutely nothing to do with it. So needless to say, the entire rest of your rant has zero credibility, too.

    • I Seigel
    • obfuscation100

      The muzzy psychopaths are here for the wet ops on We the People. Nobody else wants the job because they don’t believe the 72 “virgins” lie or anything else pleasant about it. That’s why they have to bring them in as they are ruthless murderers, which is what the pig-turd “elite” need to get their goals met.

      2017 is 100 years since the Bolshevik Revolution where all the so-called revolutionaries were imported zionists. Nothing different about the MO for the uSA. SSDD.

      I just heard on the news this morning that the U.S. released the 1.5 Billion dollars that was in addition to the $400 million that was paid in CASH to Iran. The money was released in BANK TRANSFERS in 13 different payments of equal amounts. The TV station then played a portion of a speech Obama made explaining why the $400 million was paid in cash. He specifically stated it had to be done that way because the U.S. had no banking system to transfer it by CHECK or other means.. So if we had NO means for transferring it & sent the 1st $400 million in cash, how were these other 13 transfers made. By carrier pigeon?
      HE PLAIN ” LIED.” The $400 million in cash was RANSOM for the released American hostages. He LIED again when he said ” the U.S. does NOT pay ransom in exchanged for Americans”.
      Another question is, the President said this settlement was announced in January of this year, ( whatever negotiation was made with Iran for this money that’s been tied up since the later 70’s )
      WHY WASN’T it paid then, in January? I believe some of the money was INTEREST on the held up funds. Didn’t any interest accumulate in the 1/2 year it was settled, announced BUT NOT paid? How much did this f**k up by Obama & his administration cost the American taxpayer.
      One final question is WHY was the $400 million paid in other foreign currency, why in the middle of the night in an unmarked plane?
      Anybody care to speculate ?

    Bunch of cowards killing innocents!

    Just another day, more death and devastation at the hands of the religion of a Piece of this one and a Piece of that one.

    Amazing that in no wars I can remember have the leaders of governments been taken out always the innocent. The innocent don’t run the countries or make the decisions politicians and leaders do.
