The Afghan attack outside Bagram

The Belmont Club has a lengthy report on the human bomb attack in Afghanistan outside a base in which Dick Cheney spent the night. Some are suggesting that al Qaeda and the Taliban have penetrated the security service of the US and the host governments. I think they have jsut been keeping up with the NY Times and other media who only yesterday were complaining about Cheney's penchant for secrecy.

One also has to ask why if Cheney was the target the human bomber could not get anywhere near him? That suggest to me that our security efforts were effective and the enemy was thwarted in his "plans." Of course, his real plan was to create a PR event that would be enhanced by the additional media present. If that was the plan it worked.
