WASHINGTON — The threat to Kabul airport remains “real” and “specific” as the United States winds down its withdrawal from Afghanistan, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby says.

“We’re in a particularly dangerous time right now,” Kirby tells reporters today. “The threat stream is still real, it’s still active, and in many cases it’s still specific.”
