WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Four from U.S. forces were killed in an attack on Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, a U.S. official said on Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity, just as the United States prepares for talks this week with the Taliban.

The official said insurgents attacked the base with some kind of indirect fire, leaving open the possibility it was hit by rockets or mortar rounds. No further details were immediately available.

Sending our kids to die for what? Everything is backwards as evil is seen as good & good as evil. Go ahead Obama, send fighter jets to Mohamed Morsi, financial aid to Pakistan, protect opium crops in Afghanistan, green-light Fast & furious Mexican gunrunning, thumbs-up to unconstitutional drone kills, approve secret data mining, push an exponential perpetuation of the Gay agenda, buy more votes by ignoring illegal immigration, spend 2.2 Billion on Obama phones to buy a few more, put everyone on food stamps to seal the deal for Hillary next election & now were going to arm the Al-Qaida-linked Syrian rebels only to create internal strife & further isolate Iran. Traditional American values are as Bukowski stated… “A smudge of excrement on a tissue surging out to sea with a million tons of raw sewage.” Truly game-over! Congrats Liberals, you destroyed America but at least you can enroll your non gender-specific named, presumably gay child in the Boy Scouts! What a warm & fuzzy feeling that’ll give you!

Just wait until our troops start leaving. The Taliban will attack them ruthlessly and hail the defeat of the “American cowards”; and then simply take over Afghanistan–all efforts wasted.
