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.

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

    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!

  • Jennifer

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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!

    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.

No such thing as a moderate muslim…

    #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.[…………..]

    Government to blame for Loss of Jobs
