Cheney and the Taliban

But I'm sure he'll explain how well things are going in Afghanistan. Will the idiots leading us ever realize that the debacle in Iraq has detracted from real American security?

BAGRAM, Afghanistan (AP) -- A suicide bomber attacked the
entrance to the main U.S. military base in Afghanistan on Tuesday during a visit
by Vice President Dick Cheney, killing up to 23 people and wounding 20. Cheney
was unhurt in the attack, which was claimed by the Taliban and was the closest
that militants have come to a top U.S. official visiting Afghanistan. At least
one U.S. soldier, an American contractor and a South Korean soldier were among
the dead, NATO said.

Cheney said the attackers were trying "to find ways to
question the authority of the central government." A Taliban spokesman said
Cheney was the target.

Maybe this will be a wake-up call for the evil one.

added thought: Cheney's visit was "secret", so it
appears that the Taliban have infiltrated base security.
