Jesus Take the Wheel: Suicide Bomber Kills 8 Americans in Afghanistan

- By Bossip Staff

This ~ish is real:

A suicide bomber infiltrated a CIA base in eastern Afghanistan on Wednesday, killing at least eight Americans in what is believed to be the deadliest single attack on U.S. intelligence personnel in the eight-year-long war and one of the deadliest in the agency’s history, U.S. officials said. The attack represented an audacious blow to intelligence operatives at the vanguard of U.S. counterterrorism operations in both Afghanistan and Pakistan, killing officials whose job involves plotting strikes against the Taliban, al-Qaeda and other extremist groups that are active on the frontier between the two nations. The facility that was targeted — Forward Operating Base Chapman — is in the eastern Afghan province of Khost, which borders North Waziristan, the Pakistani tribal area that is believed to be al-Qaeda’s home base.

U.S. sources confirmed that all the dead and injured were civilians and said they believed that most, if not all, were CIA employees or contractors. At least one Afghan civilian also was killed, the sources said. It is unclear exactly how the assailant managed to gain access to the heavily guarded U.S.-run post, which serves as an operations and surveillance center for the CIA. The bomber struck in what one U.S. official described as the base’s fitness center. A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for the attack and said the bomber was “an Afghan National Army officer wearing a suicide vest,” the Associated Press reported. That description could not be confirmed with U.S. or Afghan military officials. But a U.S. military official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said there are Afghan national security forces posted at the base.

Damn, this war business is getting out of hand…

    i dont understand why nation-building became part of war, propping up a puppet gov’t never really works out, vietnam, Iran, Iraq, why do they think they can pull it off in Afghanistan. Whatever happened to the days of razing the land and leaving once the fighting was done with?




    This makes me so sad. My BF is in Afghan…I hope she calls me today 😦

  • fantasy!

    What the hell is going on?!?! Is it me or does it seem as if our US “Intelligence” have become too slack???



  • Tracey

    It is our choice to be over there, if we made that choice, we should make sure things are done properly or all we would find is that more innocent civilians who lost loved ones would be easy targets to join forces with Al quaeda and being our enemies.

    Tell that to the buffoons in government running this war and promoting, and I bet they would refuse to believe that FACT!

  • chaka1

    I don’t understand why we are there and what we are supposed to accomplish…

  • Tracey

    Chaka1, we are meant to be in there for Bin Laden, but the fact that is was born and bred Saudi Arabian and isnt even in Afgahnistan (even if he fought the cold war over there) kind of defeats the point!

    Bin Laden could be anyway, so can Terrorist training groups be, Saudi Arabia, Yemen (as we have seen recently) Pakistan (where most of those fighting in Afghansitan come from) Sudan, Somalia, Ethopia, Dafar and a host of other places…focus with war on Afghanistan is the dayum same foolish tactics the white man had on Nam.

    I do get quite peed off when I hear about Afghanistan being one of the poorest lands on earth, economically maybe, in terms of natural resources it is one of the riches….UNTAPPED Gas now being TAPPED by Bush’s croonies and Opium is big business and not just for drug barons, for the pharmacuetical companies too.

  • Tracey

    We need to ask the REPULICANS, just why is it Bin Laden is the most protected TERRORIST out there in the world…protected by the FBI and CIA! Looking for him my behind!
