Somebody Does Something at U.S. Embassy in Kabul on 9/11


A rocket exploded at the U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan just minutes into Wednesday, the anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the United States, but officials at the compound declared all-clear about an hour later and reported no injuries.

A plume of smoke rose over central Kabul shortly after midnight and sirens could be heard. Inside the embassy, employees heard this message over the loudspeaker: “An explosion caused by a rocket has occurred on compound.”

There was no immediate comment from Afghan officials. The NATO mission, which is nearby, also said no personnel had been injured.

It was the first major attack in the Afghan capital since President Donald Trump abruptly called off U.S.-Taliban talks over the weekend, on the brink of an apparent deal to end America’s longest war.

  1. We need to get the hell out of Afghanistan, instead of being the Afghanistan government’s pocketbook and security force. Not our issue. Not our problem. Our only issue originally was Russia and its planned oil pipline (now moot), and now China, both of whom can be dealt with in ways other than using our blood and treasure to try to prop up the Afghanis who themselves are no great prize. Tribal warfare for centuries. (Google Pashtun pedophilia.)

  2. Huh,

    I guess the USA keeping the marines over there to protect the opium trade from farming to delivery has finally run afoul of Trump.

    Took him long enough to pull the plug on that failed deep state scam that was only designed to put never ending streams of money into the military industrial complex and the terrorist pocket since their “mission” was completed with osama’s death and the destruction of the Taliban.

    We made the EXACT same mistakes in the afgan war as we did in the veitnam war and after reading many books from people who served over there it is obvious that history is repeating itself.
