Attackers in Afghanistan Wore US Uniforms – Destroyed Six Harriers

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack and released this video.

Two US Marines were killed and several others were wounded.
The AP reported:

Coalition military authorities in Afghanistan say the insurgents who attacked a British airfield in southwestern Afghanistan on Friday, killing two U.S. Marines, wore U.S. Army uniforms and destroyed six Harrier fighter jets.

They said in a statement Saturday that about 15 insurgents carried out the attack, describing the attack as well coordinated by insurgents who were “well equipped, trained and rehearsed.” Fourteen of the 15 were killed. One was captured.

They said attackers penetrated the base’s perimeter and were armed with automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers and suicide vests. Besides destroying six planes, they destroyed three refueling stations on the base and damaged six aircraft hangars.

Barack Obama announced in May that his administration was holding peace talks with the Taliban in Afghanistan.

    Holding so-called “peace talks” with the sub-humans is an act of futility because muslims view it as a sign of weakness and an admission of defeat.

  • Economan

    Obama and anyone else is delusional if they think they can have peace with devils.

  • Economan

    It ‘s like asking Satan not to be evil. Ain’t gonna happen.

    Destroying six Harriers may very be the most successful material success the Afghans have achieved in nearly eleven years. Good job, Obama!

    My son is returning to Afghan in several weeks. I pray for our troops and hope we as a people are supportive because our leadership is not.

  • Larkin

    Unless and until we are prepared to take off the gloves, we should exit Afghanistan and every other muslim country.

    Not one more drop of American blood should be shed on behalf of those ungrateful people.

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    If this happened under Bush’s watch, the propagandists in the DNC Propaganda Machinery would be ALL OVER THIS 24/7 blaming everybody up the chain of command for incompetency including Bush himself.

    Under Obama’s watch, losing a few hundred million in high-tech fighter jets and a handful of marines is not even newsworthy.

    this insanity of welcoming the enemy into our midsts has been going on long before obama. it should be stopped immediately

  • Rmoney Voter

    Very impressive. The success of the operation suggests that at least some of them had access to the flight line – do we have talibani working around the aircraft and fueling systems?

    @Jennifer

    God bless your son, Jennifer. I pray he returns home to you safely. American patriots will always
    support our brave military.
    I agree with LARKIN, time to tale the gloves off. Let our military kill the enemy and get the hell out of there. Our military cannot continue these never ending deployments.

  • Chuck Shean

    Why does this well thought out attack remind me of scenes from “Red Dawn”? Hmmmm, I guess the Taliban have DVD’s too, huh?

  • succotash1

    Jennifer,I will keep your son and all service members in my prayers.We must all stay together and vote Obama out. Period!

  • chuck in st paul

    Afgoofystan is now and always has been a quagmire for any Western army. These sand monkies do NOT want to be civilized. They want their sixth century death cult and to go back to constant tribal warfare. It’s all they’ve known for hundreds of years. Real civilization is out of their comfort zone.

    We need to make a simple understanding with the taliban and the rest of the so-called ‘country’ of Afghanistan. We’re leaving. You can do whatever you want to each other; however, if you allow anyone who trains to attack America or Americans to be in Afghanistan we will carpet bomb you into dust. Then declare victory and leave.

    Same message for Waziristan via Pakistan, and stop all aid to Pakistan.

    Then back it up with actual carpet bombing. It won’t stop them, but it’ll slow ’em down.

    Get US the HELL OUT of that 3rd world backwater SH!THOLE. NO reason to be there. Bring the troops HOME NOW. Let that crapfest just deteriorate into the mess it always has been. Islam and America cannot exist peacefully together……FACT ! Leave em to reside in STUPID, and the ones already here? Deport em all ! Islam and Americans are INCOMPATIBLE. PERIOD. No such thing as a moderate muslim…

  • chuck in st paul

    #11 John, I so agree with you. I was in the military back in the 60’s and you only got sent in-country once, or twice at most. These kids are going back again and again and again. And then folks wonder why we’ve got so many casese of PTSD. It is cruel to do this to these young warriors.

    President Ladies Tees needs to get his stuff together and get the heck out.

    Prisoners are making Military uniforms

    One “may not” have anything to do with the other.

    Now, the government really is responsible for depriving the garment industry of that final place of refuge. Federal prisoners will be making the uniforms that Fayette residents once earned a living sewing.

    With debt and deficits climbing, the federal government must take steps to cut costs. If the move to shift government contracts from private companies to prison labor is part of a broader cost-cutting effort, it is at least logical.[…………]]

    Teaching prisoners to sew for rehabilitative purposes is an exercise in absurdity. By handing the jobs over to prisoners, the government is destroying the last vestiges of the industry that the prisoners are being trained to work in once they leave prison. Where, we ask, will prisoners find work when they are released if the industry they are trained to service no longer exists?

    Congress should carefully consider the economic impact of this policy, balancing the jobs lost against the cost savings realized. Additional scrutiny might not change the policy but it deserves review.[…………..]

    Afghan inside attack kills 4 US troops, report says

    ” At least one Afghan police officer turned his gun on NATO troops at a remote checkpoint in southern Afghanistan before dawn Sunday, killing four American service members before escaping, according to Afghan and international officials.

    It was the third attack by Afghan forces or insurgents disguised in military uniforms against international forces in as many days, killing eight troops in all.”

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/09/16/afghan-inside-attack-kills-4-nato-troops-military-says/

    all OUR MEDIA SHOULD BE ON TOP OF THIS, OUTRAGED THAT THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS NO FOREIGN POLICY IN PLACE TO PROTECT OUR TROOPS. BUT OBAMA SPENDS MONEY ON HIS SOLYNDRAS, COVERING UP BRIAN TERRY’S DEATH, AND THE HIS WIFE SAYS THAT OBESITY IS OUR NATIONAL SECURITY RISK.

    HE GUTS OUR MILITARY TO PAY FOR OTHER THING. HE TAKES FROM MEDICARE TO PAY FOR OBAMA CARE. NOW THE SENATE HAS VOTE TO FUND OBAMA CARE.

    OBAMA PRIORITIES ARE NOT ON THE INTEREST OF OUR TROOPS AND HE TRULY BELIEVES THAT WE MUST RESPECT THE OTHER FAITHS. NICE, BUT THAT IS A FANTASY. AND HE HAS NO RESPECT FOR THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.

  • Mama Grizzly

    Right. Sending our young fighting warriors repeatedly into a war zone when we are not committed to WINNING, is cruel. There is no leadership. No goal. No end in sight. No accomplishment to aim for. Just the daily grind, the daily absurdity, the daily threats. I hate Obama for that.

    But one of his goals IS to demoralize and dematerialize America’s fighting force. He is making that happen month after month. In fact, Obama is doing really well on achieving ALL his (true) goals.

    It’s amazing to me that the gub’ment can stop regular people from getting on airplanes to travel and can “protect our security” (lol, gag) , yet the same gub’ment can’t take care of REAL security on military bases or embassies.

    Hmmm… perhaps the fox is in the hen house? Ya’ think? Just maybe?

  • man_in_tx

    Only two possible explanations for recent events across the globe present themselves — either President Obama is the most incompetent creature ever to enter the White House, or, he is siding with the enemy and assisting them each step of the way.

    Quiz question: Would someone please show me one significant foreign-policy decision made by the current Administration that either helped the US or Israel or slowed the prairie-fire like expansionism of al-Qaeda-inspired fighters from Tunisia to Iraq?

    Either way, as our gutless Congress will never impeach, the only answer is immediate resignation — resignation by Obama, as well as by his chief military enablers, Marine Gen John Allen in Afghanistan and Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen Martin Dempsey (Army) — both of whom are asking our troops to be more apologetic, humble, and submissive to our “noble” Aghan “friends.” Good-bye, chumps.

    If, somehow Romney wins, and if he then fails to fire these two generals, he is a moron.

  • Mama Grizzly

    Harriers: upwards of $35 million each . . . . so that’s about $210 million, give or take a few hundred thousand, but more because it will take more to rebuild them, if they CAN be rebuilt. Interesting that Obama is cutting cutting cutting defense spending. I expect more hard targets to go down over the next few months.

    The other thing is this and the embassy downfall is code to the cells that America can be taken down by the average jihadi Moslem.

    They’re all going to go apesh*t now, over there, and all will want to prove their greatness against America.

  • Mama Grizzly

    Attacks here will also begin soon, I bet, but will be orchestrated all at once. The ME is just a dry run for what’s coming. There are at least 100 3-man teams (cells) PER STATE in America right now, waiting for orders. ONE HUNDRED TEAMS PER STATE.
