5 Americans injured in Afghanistan base attack

A terrorist disguised as an Afghan police officer has reportedly blown himself up at an American base in the Dand aw Patan district of eastern Afghanistan.

According to an Associated Press article linked on the USA Today website, the attack happened near dusk at the military installation, which is not far from the Pakistani border.

If all the facts the AP is reporting are verified, the attack is similar to the December 30 strike on a U.S. base in Khost, which killed seven CIA agents and a Jordanian. Hopefully, all the wounded will survive this attack, but this is another reminder of how the enemy operates. They often come disguised as friendly allies, and will target soldiers and civilians in the most cowardly methods imaginable. Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and all terrorist allies must be defeated.
