There is good news and bad news from the far off land of Afghanistan. The good news stems from a successful operation by Afghan security forces which intercepted and seized 10 tons of explosives that were destined to be exploded in the capital of Kabul. Five militants from Pakistan were arrested along with two comrades from Afghanistan. The bad news is the men confessed to being provided the explosives by the Pakistan ISI.
According to the men their objective was “to carry out a terrorist attack in a key point in Kabul city.” They also were going to assassinate Vice President Karim Khalili. The operation was a combined Pakistan Taliban and Afghan Taliban operation. Isn’t it wonderful that our Pakistan ally works to get us blown up?
