Taliban Suicide Bombers welcome SecDef Chuck Hagel to Afghanistan and Weekend Links!

There were 20 people killed today in Afghanistan in two suicide bombings coordinated by the Taliban. A spokesman for the terrorists said the attacks were “a message” for the fecklessly confused Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, who is in Afghanistan for his first official visit.

Here he is talking to members of the 101st Airborne Division at Jalalabad Airfield in eastern Afghanistan. They, both the troops and Hagel, looked thrilled don’t they?


Hagel was nowhere near the blasts, but heard them across the city. He told reporters traveling with him that he wasn’t sure what it was when he heard the explosion.

“We’re in a war zone. I’ve been in war, so shouldn’t be surprised when a bomb goes off or there’s an explosion,” said Hagel, a Vietnam War veteran.

He’s brilliant, isn’t he? Yay us.
