Fox News writes in their running thread on Kabul:
Four U.S. Marines have been killed in the explosion outside of Kabul’s airport and 3 have been wounded, U.S. officials tell Fox News’ Lucas Tomlinson and Jennifer Griffin.
They didn’t provide any more on this, but here’s a bit more from WSJ:
The U.S. ambassador in Kabul has told staff there that four U.S. Marines were killed in an explosion at the city’s airport and three wounded, a U.S. official with knowledge of the briefing said. Two explosions ripped through crowds of Afghans trying to enter the airport on Thursday.
At least three U.S. troops were injured, a U.S. official said. Witnesses reported multiple fatalities among the Afghans, many of whom were trying to enter the airport because they had assisted U.S.-led coalition efforts and feared persecution by the Taliban.
Western governments have repeatedly warned of an imminent attack by Islamic State and urged their citizens not to approach the airport. After the blasts, the U.S. Embassy told all Americans to leave the entrances to the airport immediately.
The explosion at the Abbey Gate of the airport was the result of a complex attack, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said. He said another blast occurred near the Baron hotel adjacent to the airport. A British security official said both attacks were carried out by suicide bombers.
An Afghan man who was attempting for the fifth time to get into the airport and get on one of the evacuation planes was standing in the crowd outside Abbey Gate when the detonation took place. “A lot of people got hurt,” he said by phone. “I helped a little girl. I think she died.”
Another Afghan man who was on the edge of the crowd near the Baron hotel said the explosion there occurred in the middle of thousands of people. He said he saw many maimed, bloodied people being brought out and was told of many fatalities.
This never had to happen, but it did because Joe Biden is an incompetent fool. This is on his hands.
The blood of 4 Marines is on Joe Biden’s hands. Not because he put them in harm’s way, that’s their job. It’s that he put them in harm’s way with handcuffs and blinders on. He hindered their ability to defend themselves and others, relying on terrorists to provide security.

UPDATE: I’m adding this from Sean Parnell:
Joe Biden has lost the moral authority to lead our nation. Americans are now dead because of his incompetence. It didn’t have to be this way.
He should resign as Commander in Chief. pic.twitter.com/oka0zSLaBK
