What Are You Feeling?

 This morning, two apparent suicide bombers were responsible for explosions at or near the HK International Airport, killing (so far) 11 US Marines and a Navy Corpsman, plus killing or injuring a large number of Afghanis. I've now heard that, to effect safe passage to the airport, the US Government has passed to the Taliban names, addresses, and other information about US Citizens and Afghan allies. What have we heard from the white house? If things go as advertised, he will speak about seven hours after the attack. 

What are you feeling? My emotions are too complex to tell. How about you?

PS--he mentioned (as he often does) that his son, Beau, served as a major in the army. (He served as part of a National Guard unit doing communications work--Biden Sr got the idea that "burn pits" contributed to his son's brain ca from a book by the same name).
This isn't the first time he's mentioned his son's military service. Here's what ABC cut from his recent interview: “Look, that’s like askin’ my deceased son Beau, who spent six months in Kosovo and a year in Iraq as a Navy captain and then major – I mean, as an Army major. And, you know, I’m sure he had regrets comin’ out of Afghanistan– I mean, out of Iraq."

Feeling? Queasy, literally.
