Secretary of State John Kerry has confirmed that “a number of Americans” were killed in the terror attacks in Belgium. Meaning President Obama was doing the wave at a baseball game and dancing the tango with an Argentinian playboy model while the families of the dead were still wondering about their loved ones.
Americans were killed in the Brussels attacks that claimed at least 31 lives, Secretary of State John Kerry said, as he made a somber visit to the heart of the European Union that was struck by Islamic State violence earlier this week.
“The United States is praying and grieving with you for the loved ones of those cruelly taken from us, including Americans, and for the many who were injured in these despicable attacks,” Kerry said alongside Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel.
Kerry gave no further detail Friday (March 25) about the identities or the number of the Americans who were killed. Earlier, NBC reported that two Americans were killed, citing an unnamed senior U.S. official.
The New York Post has confirmed that the two Americans were indeed sibling from New York City, Sascha and Alexander Pinczowski.
Via The Post:
New York City siblings Sascha and Alexander Pinczowski were killed in the suicide bombings in Brussels, it was confirmed Friday.
“We received confirmation this morning from Belgian Authorities and the Dutch Embassy of the positive identification of the remains of Alexander and Sascha,” according to a statement provided to CBS News.
“We are grateful to have closure on this tragic situation, and are thankful for the thoughts and prayers from all. The family is in the process of making arrangements.”
The two Dutch citizens had been on the phone with their mom, Marjan, when she heard a blast and the call disconnected. They were on their way back to the US when they were killed.
Perhaps Obama could find time in his busy schedule to attend the funerals of these Americans who were killed by
climate change Islamic terrorists.
Just a suggestion.
