    MSNBC “Stephanie Ruhle Reports” host Stephanie Ruhle on Monday wondered where Vice President Kamala Harris has been regarding the ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. Ruhle, who was reacting to the Biden administration stopping the group of 15,000 Haitian immigrants camping under a bridge at the border, noted that Harris was put in charge of the border. She said that “people aren’t listening” to her messaging to not come to the United States illegally and asked what she was doing now to solve the issue. “How about the message from our vice president? Where is she?” Ruhle asked. “She was supposed to be in charge of all of these migration issues, going to those Northern Triangle countries — that’s obviously not Haiti — that was one of her first international trips with the message ‘Do not come here illegally.’ People aren’t listening. What is she saying now?” NBC News correspondent Julia Ainsley replied, “Well, we haven’t heard a lot from the vice president. Of course, you point out she was focused on those Northern Triangle countries. A lot of her work...

Kewell failed to win all of his matches with the Bees, who have lost five times so far in the fifth division this season. 1Harry Kewell was sacked by Barnet after a disastrous start in the seasonCredit: Rex The Edgware outfit is second from bottom on the table with Dover, who started the campaign with a 12-point deduction, the only team below them. Barnet's head of football Dean Brennan confirmed the decision to dismiss the former Liverpool and Leeds star was taken because of the team's poor start. Brennan said: "It was clear how much Harry Kewell wanted to have a positive impact, but ultimately the results and the poor start to the season have dictated our decision. "The plan for this season was for Barnet FC to be challenging in the top half of the table and that is still very much our aim." Kewell's assistant Paul Butler is also departing from Barnet with Brennan taking over on a temporary basis....
    General Mark Milley briefed four entities on his talks with China behind then-President Donald Trump's back, 'Peril 'author Bob Woodward revealed Monday, saying the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ordered operations to cease that he thought Beijing could see as 'provocative.' He said that he wasn't aware he was reporting on any 'treasonous behavior' by writing about Milley's backchannel calls with China because there was 'nothing hidden' about it happening at the time. 'After the call he then gave a full briefing to four people,' Woodward told Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos on Monday morning where he was joined by co-author Robert Costa. He revealed that Milley discussed the call with then-CIA Director Gina Haspel, NSA Director Paul Nakasone, heads of the different military branches and an admiral in charge of the Pacific operations.

'Talked to Paul Nakasone, who heads National Security Agency, which does worldwide eavesdropping, and said, 'needles up,' which is an expression – 'listen everywhere,' Woodward said of Milley.

    MSNBC host Joy Reid admitted she was 'hesitant' of the COVID-19 vaccine, but has since changed course as she responded to singer Nicki Minaj's vaccine hesitancy claims.  Reid - whose parent company NBC Universal requires vaccination for all in-office employees like herself - admitted on her show Thursday that she was hesitant to take the COVID-19 vaccine under the Trump administration.  'Listen, I understand the hesitancy,' she said as she spoke to Michael Dyson on her show Reid Out about Minaj, who she's been feuding with all week.  'I was hesitant when Donald Trump was out there controlling the CDC and controlling the FDA and manipulating them and making them put out falsehoods.

    Montgomery County police have charged three more people they say are responsible for a murder that happened more than four years ago in Silver Spring, Maryland. Police have charged Leaundra Matthews with helping in the murder of her younger brother Christian in 2017. Back in 2017, Montgomery County police responded to a call for a suspicious situation and found Christian unresponsive inside of a house. According to charging documents, when police arrived at the house in the 1000 black of Mondrian Terrace, they say Leaundra greeted officers and said that she heard a loud commotion in the basement where her brother’s bedroom was. Officers searched the house at the request of the sisters and found Matthews unresponsive in his basement bedroom with suspicious marks on his neck. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. Leaundra’s boyfriend, Tysean Lipford, was charged and found guilty of second-degree murder in 2019 and was sentenced to 30 years in prison. Now, Leaundra has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in the death of her brother. Police have...
    AndreyPopov | iStock | Getty Images The Department of Justice on Friday announced criminal charges against 42 medical professionals and nearly 100 other people for alleged health-care fraud that involved about $1.4 billion in suspected losses. The cases charged include ones that involved the use of telemedicine services as part of the fraud, which alone accounted for approximately $1.1 billion in alleged losses. Telemedicine employs communications technology to evaluate and treat patients remotely. The other charged schemes involved fraud that exploited the Covid-19 pandemic, or involved substance abused treatment facilities known as "sober homes," and opioid distribution networks. "We are stopping corrupt medical professionals in their tracks," Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Polite Jr. of the Justice Department's Criminal Division told reporters during a briefing about the case. The 138 people charged in the cases include 23 physicians, the DOJ said. The cases are being prosecuted by 31 U.S. Attorneys' offices around the country. Polite noted that opioid-related overdoses killed a "record number of Americans, nearly 70,000," last year, and that drug overdose deaths overall increased by more than 30%, with...
    Lieutenant General Thomas Spoehr, who oversaw the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq in 2011, told the Daily Caller News Foundation that the failure to prepare for the “worst case scenario” caused the withdrawal from Afghanistan to be far more chaotic. “We were down to the individual name and I think, as far as I know, we had left just one person in a jail and that person I got word had gotten successfully freed,” Spoehr described Iraq evacuation efforts. “No one wanted to mess with the U.S. on their way out because they were going to get hammered,” Spoehr said. The Biden administration’s failure to prepare for the “worst case scenario” led to the chaotic final days of the war in Afghanistan, the former deputy commanding general who oversaw the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “You plan for the worst case and the worst case would never be to evacuate people out of Hamid Karzai airport,” former Lt. Gen. Thomas Spoehr, current director of Heritage Foundation’s Center for National Defense, told the...

    The AP reports: “Attorneys asked a judge Wednesday to dismiss a new manslaughter charge against the former suburban Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Daunte Wright during a traffic stop this spring. Former Brooklyn Center Officer Kim Potter says she mistakenly drew her firearm instead of her stun gun as Wright was trying to drive away from officers during the stop in April. Potter is recorded on body-camera video an instant after the shooting saying she drew the wrong weapon. Potter is white. Wright was Black. His death sparked several nights of protests. Prosecutors charged her with second-degree manslaughter. Attorney General Keith Ellison, whose office later took over the case, added a count of first-degree manslaughter earlier this month. Potter is scheduled to stand trial in December.  The second-degree manslaughter charge is punishable by up to 10 years in prison; first-degree has a maximum 15-year sentence.” In the Pioneer Press, Bill Salisbury writes: “After Minnesota House Democrats voted Tuesday night to expel him from their caucus, state Rep. John Thompson of St. Paul announced Wednesday that he will continue...
    South Carolina legal scion Alex Murdaugh plans to surrender to police after a warrant was issued for his arrest, in the latest twist in the ongoing murder mystery surrounding the family. Murdaugh plans to voluntarily turn himself in in Hampton County on Thursday to face a charge of conspiracy to commit insurance fraud, his attorney Jim Griffin told WCBD-TV. A bond hearing in the case is set for 4.00pm at the Hampton County Magistrate Court.  It comes a day after police alleged that Murdaugh orchestrated his own shooting in a botched assisted suicide scheme, in the hopes that his surviving son would collect a $10 million life insurance payment   In addition to the hitman suicide plot, South Carolina police are also investigating the misallocation of millions from Murdaugh's law firm, the 'trip-and-fall' death of his housekeeper in 2018, and the murder of his wife and son in June.  Murdaugh's other attorney Dick Hartpoolian earlier admitted his client schemed to have himself killed by a hitman in the botched life insurance plot, and said he expected his client to be charged...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Kim Potter, the former Brooklyn Center police officer accused in the fatal shooting of Daunte Wright, filed a motion on Wednesday to dismiss the first-degree manslaughter charge which was added against her earlier this month. Potter was charged with second-degree manslaughter days after the shooting, but in early September, Attorney General Keith Ellison added a first-degree manslaughter charge. Ellison’s office argued that Potter committed first-degree manslaughter while also committing the misdemeanor of recklessly handling a firearm when she shot Wright. Potter fatally shot Wright on April 11 after a traffic stop that police say was initiated because of expired tabs. At the time, the Brooklyn Center police chief, who has now resigned, said Potter intended to reach for her Taser, not her gun. Video evidence shows Potter yelling “Taser!” before she shot him. The motion argues that in order for Potter to be charged with first-degree murder, we would have had to create “a substantial and justifiable risk that [s]he was aware of and disregarded.” But it goes on to say that Potter did not know that she...
    By Evens Sanon and Danica Coto | Associated Press PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Haiti’s chief prosecutor asked a judge Tuesday to charge Prime Minister Ariel Henry in the slaying of the president and to bar him from leaving the country, a move that could further destabilize a country roiled by turmoil following the assassination and a recent major earthquake. The order filed by Port-au-Prince prosecutor Bed-Ford Claude came on the same day that he requested that Henry meet with him and explain why a key suspect in the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse called him twice just hours after the killing. “There are enough compromising elements … to prosecute Henry and ask for his outright indictment,” Claude wrote. A spokesman for Henry could not immediately be reached for comment. Claude said the calls were made at 4:03 a.m. and 4:20 a.m. on July 7, adding that evidence shows the suspect, Joseph Badio, was in the vicinity of Moïse’s home at that time. Badio once worked for Haiti’s Ministry of Justice and at the government’s anti-corruption unit until he was fired in...

The Red Devils relinquished a first half lead as the 36th-minute dismissal of Aaron Wan-Bissaka proved crucial. 3Solskjaer's poor record in Europe continued in Switzerland on Tuesday nightCredit: Reuters 3United were undone in added time after a horrible backpass from substitute LingardCredit: Getty The hosts levelled midway through the second half and eventually completed an unlikely comeback in stoppage time after a woeful backpass from Jesse Lingard allowed Jordan Siebatcheu to nip in and score. The defeat continues the Norwegian manager's rechid record in Europe's premier competition. As reported by Opta, Solskjaer has now lost seven of his 11 Champions League games in charge of Man Utd.

    Republican Idaho Sen. James Risch grilled Secretary of State Antony Blinken during Tuesday’s hearing about who is “in charge” of President Joe Biden at the White House and specifically asked who has the authority to “push the button” and cut off Biden’s microphone. “Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and stop the president, cut off the president’s speaking ability and sound. Who is that person?” Risch asked Blinked during the hearing. “There is no such person,” Blinken responded, saying Biden “speaks very clearly and very deliberately for himself. No one else does.” “This is a puppeteer act, if you would, and we need to know who’s in charge and who is making the decisions,” Risch said.

    Senate Republicans on Tuesday questioned Secretary of State Antony Blinken about who is really in charge of making decisions at the White House amid multiple feeds of President Joe Biden being cut off by a “puppeteer” in mid-conversation at public events. “There’s real questions right now as to who’s making the decisions,” Foreign Relations Committee’s Ranking Member Sen. James Risch (R-ID) began in his opening statement. For more than 2 minutes at the beginning of a hearing on Afghanistan, Sen.

    A chief prosecutor in Haiti asked a judge on Tuesday to charge Prime Minister Ariel Henry with killing President Jovenel Moise, who was assassinated during an attack on his home this summer. Port-au-Prince prosecutor Bed-Ford Claude filed the order and asked officials to bar Henry from leaving the country. He also requested that Henry meet with him and explain why a key suspect in the investigation into the July 7 assassination called him twice hours after the killing.

    Sen. James Risch, R-Idaho, claimed Tuesday that someone in the White House other than President Biden is "calling the shots." Risch made the comments during Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s hearing before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations about the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan, which the senator called a "dismal failure."

    KABUL (AP) — Once, Kabul’s main prison was crowded with thousands of Taliban captured and arrested by the government. On Monday, a Taliban commander strolled through its empty halls and cell blocks, showing his friends where he had once been imprisoned. It was a sign of the sudden and startling new order in Afghanistan after the militant group swept into the capital nearly a month ago and threw out the crumbling, U.S.-backed government it had fought for 20 years. The Taliban now run Pul-e-Charkhi Prison, a sprawling complex on Kabul’s eastern outskirts. After capturing the city, the fighters freed all the inmates there, the government guards fled, and now dozens of Taliban fighters are running the facility. The commander, who refused to give his name, was on a personal visit to the complex with a group of his friends. He told The Associated Press he had been arrested around a decade ago in eastern Kunar province and was brought to Pul-e-Charkhi, bound and blindfolded. “I feel so terrible when I remember those days,” he said. He said...

    Biologist Bret Weinstein accused Dr. Anthony Fauci of “clearly” lying to U.S. Congress, calling into question his capacity of “keeping us all safe,” a video clip posted on YouTube Thursday showed. Podcaster Joe Rogan, who spoke to Weinstein on his show, said that people on the “mainstream news” team believed Fauci’s every word, while mocking those who turn to alternative treatments of COVID-19, such as ivermectin. “We all need to be on team ‘skeptic’,” Weinstein responded. “Anthony Fauci was yesterday revealed to have clearly lied to Congress when he told that we didn’t fund gain-of-function research in Wuhan.” (RELATED: Newly Released Documents Show Fauci Was ‘Untruthful’ About Wuhan Coronavirus Research, Infectious Disease Expert Says) WATCH: Weinstein added that it was “obvious” that Fauci was lying in his sworn testimony before Congress, and had defined terms “in some way that would justify that claim.” Fauci denied at the time that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) had funded gain-of-function experiments on bat-based coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology before the pandemic “Here we have somebody who...
    El CERRITO – There was no mistaking it – El Cerrito made a statement with its 27-14 victory over perennial football power Bishop O’Dowd on Friday night. “Bishop O’Dowd has a great program, they’ve been great for many years,” El Cerrito coach Jacob Rincon said, adding that in the second half “we needed to be a little more disciplined. We needed to play at a high level.” The Gauchos (2-1), 17th in the Bay Area News Group rankings, certainly achieved that. They outscored No. 18 Bishop O’Dowd 20-7 in the second half (including the last 20 points) and limited the Dragons to 148 total yards, including 33 total rushing yards. El Cerrito showed throughout that it has a variety of ways to gash its opponents. Bruising running back Antonio Hines has the speed to motor through holes made by his offensive line (as he did on a 28-yard first-quarter touchdown run) and the toughness for hard yards (he bulled his way for a 7-yard TD in the third quarter). He finished with a game-high 77 yards...

    President Joe Biden's vaccination mandate for the private and public sector stirred outrage and threats of lawsuits over his 'extraordinary sweeping use of presidential authority to force a medical treatment on workers' as businesses big and small scramble to get clarity on the edict.  Ethan Brecher, a top labor lawyer and founder of The Law Office of Ethan A.

    Democrats in Washington are still pushing ahead with plans for their historically astronomical $3.5 trillion spending bill. The massive regulatory and social changes included would push America further to the left than ever before. The reconciliation spending bill, which can be passed with no Republican votes in the House or Senate, includes a ton of tax increases along with the huge new spending increases. The proposal will reportedly raise the individual income tax rates and the corporate income tax rates. According to the most recent news reporting, however, one tax policy is going to make it through the huge left-wing agenda unchanged: the so-called carried interest loophole — special low tax rates for Wall Street money managers. With the left pushing a socialist agenda and many on the right so frustrated they are ready to burn down the establishment altogether, how has Wall Street been able to retain a fundamentally unfair special tax treatment throughout one of the greatest populist moments in U.S. history? The answer, of course, is that through all of America’s recent travails, Wall Street still runs...
    August rally in support of a pathway to citizenship, Washington, D.C. Politico reports that Senate parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough, who is an employee of the chamber, will this Friday hear “dueling arguments” over the inclusion of immigration provisions in Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending package. Those provisions would create a pathway to citizenship for young undocumented immigrants, temporary status holders, and essential laborers like farmworkers. Democrats will argue that there is precedent for passing these provisions through the budget reconciliation process (and there is). Senate Republicans will oppose it, because they’re Senate Republicans. Beltway reporting has framed MacDonough’s opinion as a final ruling, the last word, do not pass go, do not collect a pathway to citizenship. But as Daily Kos’ Joan McCarter has previously written, it’s an opinion Senate Democrats are free to reject. It’s really all up to them. Leading into this Friday’s meeting, policy experts and advocates have already publicly made the case for passing immigration provisions through the budget reconciliation process. “In 2005, the Republican-controlled Senate overwhelmingly passed a version of what ultimately became the Deficit Reduction Act through reconciliation, containing several relevant immigration provisions,” the...
    A Florida trucker was sentenced to a plea-bargained four years in state prison for fleeing a tractor-trailer crash that killed a 21-year-old Teaneck native on Route 95 in Fort Lee last year. Joel Lasanta, 39, was captured by New Jersey State Police two days after the June 4, 2020 crash, authorities said at the time. Jada Smith had been headed back to Teaneck from Brooklyn with fellow family members in two vehicles when she was involved in another accident in the southbound express lanes of Route 95 shortly before 10:30 p.m. Smith's mom and dad were in a car behind hers coming off the George Washington at the time, a source with direct knowledge of the incident told Daily Voice.

She was pronounced dead at the scene less than a half-hour later, responders said. State troopers nabbed Lasanta at the Clara Barton Service Area on the New Jersey Turnpike south of...
    MANCHESTER UNITED were champions when Cristiano Ronaldo made his first debut for the club in 2003, in a game that featured some classic throwback names. Ronaldo, 36, arrived at Old Trafford in a summer that saw David Beckham and Juan Sebastian Veron exit the club. 5How Manchester United lined up vs Bolton in 2003 But the Red Devils opened the campaign with a convincing 4-0 win over Bolton. And it did not take Ronaldo long to light up the match after his substitution on 61 minutes, as he won a penalty after being tugged back by Kevin Nolan - Ruud van Nistelrooy missed the resulting spot-kick. United's starting line-up also featured current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on that day. Here is what the rest are up to now. Tim Howard Howard finally ended his playing career this year with American second-tier club Memphis 901, where he serves as part-owner and sporting director. He is also part-owner of Dagenham & Redbridge and acts as international ambassador in the United States for former club Everton. Most read in FootballLive BlogGunners news Conte...
    Political blogger Curtis Yarvin, known better by his longtime pseudonym Mencius Moldbug, explained his assessment of the federal Deep State to Fox Nation's "Tucker Carlson Today" Wednesday, explaining that the American people wrongly believe their election of a president puts that individual in control of the executive branch and the country. Yarvin, a software developer who now writes on Substack, has been "hounded nonstop by the people who write Wikipedia, by the banks, by the people who maintain the status quo at all costs," Carlson explained to Carlson. "We think, particularly because we have a full hour, that it'd be worth talking to Curtis Yarvin about what he makes of the moment we're living in right now," he added. Yarvin compared the Deep State's construct to that of the Vatican, saying the Pope is the figurehead leader of the Catholic Church, but that the Roman Catholics are more greatly affected and led by their priests and local bishops. "When I actually look at what the Vatican is or, in this case, the swamp, the Deep State, as the cathedral, as...
    CIA operatives who were the first boots on the ground behind Taliban lines after the Sept. 11 attacks say they feel betrayed by President Biden's botched withdrawal from Afghanistan. The author telling Team Alpha operatives' story in his new book, "First Casualty: The Untold Story of the CIA Mission to Avenge 9/11," Toby Harnden, told Fox News that former CIA officers are carrying a burden of sadness over the deadly withdrawal. "There is a deep sense of sadness among former CIA officers about the desperate situation in Afghanistan and the return to power of the Taliban, a movement of medieval brutality," Harnden said. BLINKEN SAYS TALIBAN ARE BLOCKING CHARTER FLIGHTS FROM DEPARTING AFGHANISTAN "The consensus among the Team Alpha members is that the decision to withdraw U.S. forces completely was a mistake and that the evacuation of Kabul was catastrophically mismanaged," he continued. "As they were 20 years ago, the six living members of Team Alpha are focused on what they feel is their current mission – to get those who fought with them in 2001, and their families, out...
    A man has been arrested in connection to the cold case murder of his wife 25 years after her unidentified skeletal remains were discovered in the rural hills of Oregon, investigators said Tuesday.

    NXIVM cofounder and Keith Raniere's alleged 'second-in-command' Nancy Salzman has arrived at court where she will be sentenced for her part in the sex cult. Salzman, 66, linked arms with two companions as she walked into Brooklyn federal court, New York, Wednesday morning, more than two years after she pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge.  She is expected to face between 33 and 41 months in prison.    NXIVM was founded by Raniere and Salzman as a purported self-help group and multi-level marketing company in Albany, New York, in the 1990s, offering personal improvement and professional development training programs.  In 2015, a number of NXIVM employees entered into a secret society known as Dominus Obsequious Sororium (DOS) - a sex cult controlled by Raniere.  As part of the secret master/slave club, women were branded, turned into his sex slaves, made to live off just 500 calories a day and forced to make a lifetime vow to obey their 'masters'.  Raniere was sentenced to 120 years in prison in October 2020 for charges including sex trafficking after being found guilty of turning cult followers...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Ford Motor Co. has hired a former executive from Apple and Tesla to be the company’s head of advanced technology and new embedded systems, a critical post as the auto industry moves to adopt vehicles powered by electricity and guided by computers. Before Doug Field joined Ford, he was a vice president of special projects at Apple and a engineer at Tesla. Apple has been rumored to be working on its own car project for some time, but the details have been kept under tight wraps. Field also worked on Tesla’s Model 3 vehicle. Field will be in charge of building out passenger systems like navigation, driver-assist technology, connected systems and cybersecurity across all of Ford’s products. He will also be in charge of making sure Ford products work well with other pieces of technology, such as a smartphone or watch. “I’m thrilled to be joining Ford as it embraces a transition to a new, complex and fascinating period in the auto industry,” Field said in a statement. “It will be a privilege to help...

                      by Julie Kelly  Jacob Chansley, arguably the most iconic figure of the January 6 protest at the U.S. Capitol, today pleaded guilty to one count of obstruction of an official proceeding. Chansley, 33, turned himself in to law enforcement and was arrested on January 9. A grand jury indicted Chansley two days later on six nonviolent counts including obstruction, civil disorder, and “parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.” The remaining counts will be dropped. Judge Royce Lamberth accepted Chansely’s plea agreement with Joe Biden’s Justice Department, which continues to arrest and charge Americans for even minor involvement in the Capitol protest. Nearly 200 defendants face the obstruction charge, a felony added to mostly misdemeanor cases. (I explained the charge here in March.) Lawyers for some January 6 defendants are challenging the charge in court, insisting it does not apply to political protests or the certification of the Electoral College. One federal judge last month warned prosecutors the obstruction charge suffers from a “constitutional vagueness problem.” Several defendants have pleaded guilty to obstruction; in July,...

    Friday on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson ridiculed the media and those claiming “progress” in Afghanistan in the wake of the collapse of the U.S.-installed government in Kabul in an abbreviated amount of time. Carlson noted the U.S. military equipment left behind, which he described as the Biden administration arming the Taliban and marooning its own citizens. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: In July of 2017, every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff met with newly elected President Donald Trump for the first time. It didn’t go well. “You’re all losers,” the President has told them according to a “Foreign Policy” magazine account. “You don’t know how to win anymore.” Now, that’s a harsh assessment, obviously, though arguably true, but the Joint Chiefs of Staff are, keep in mind the country’s highest-ranking military officers. Their job is to follow the orders of elected officials and protect the country no matter how much their feelings may be hurt. But in this case, that’s not what happened, because the rules are different now. According to U.S. Army Major General Paul...

    THE RAF pilots who were in charge of Afghan mercy flights have revealed details of their heroic escapades. One described the terror of taking off in Kabul and avoiding a moving bus on the runway by just ten feet — with no lighting. 1Paras chief Brigadier James Martin saluted his troops who sprinted to save women and children from the carnage of the airport suicide blastCredit: Anthony Upton The specifics of their life or death decision-making emerged after they evacuated 14,000 people in less than two weeks following the capital’s fall to the Taliban, with the airport the only route out. Wing Commander Kev Latcham, of 99 Squadron, landed as small explosions were going off. He said the “whole airfield was chaos” as he tried to get 365 people to safety. He revealed: “The airfield lighting went down - it was either due to an explosion or the generator had gone out.” And he had to pull off an emergency manoeuvre to avoid the bus during take-off. He added: “We got airborne about 200 feet from the bus and...
