American forces reportedly destroyed the final CIA base in Kabul as they pressed ahead to finish evacuation mission by August 31.
Ahead of the August 31 deadline, American forces are said to have destroyed the final CIA base in Kabul, as per media reports.
The New York Times reported that the CIA outpost outside the Kabul airport was destroyed on Thursday, just hours after a deadly suicide blast outside the airport that killed as many as 169 Afghans and 13 American service members.
As per reports, a controlled detonation was used to blow up Eagle Base, where Afghan counterterrorism forces and intelligence agencies were trained.
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), however, declined to comment to the Washington Examiner on the report, which claimed that blowing up the Kabul base was meant to destroy equipment and documents in order to prevent them falling into the Taliban’s possession.
