Cheney assassination attempt fails

VP Cheney was the target of the suicide bomber who killed 23 at Bagram AFB in Afghanistan yesterday. Note the prescience of Cheney, and the infiltration by the Taliban and al-Qaeda of the Afghani security forces:

The day before the explosion Cheney warned President Pervez Musharraf of neighbouring Pakistan to crack down on militants regrouping in Pakistan's tribal areas to mount attacks across the border and further afield.

"This shows how much the militants have penetrated the intelligence of the Afghan security forces. It is a most shocking attack," retired Pakistani general turned analyst Talat Masood told AFP.

And The Monk would bet that the infiltrators in the "Afghan security forces" have some high-level contacts in the Pakistani ISI.
