    Alqeida attacks another US consulate.

    Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- A huge explosion rocked the area near the U.S. consulate in Afghanistan's Herat province early Friday during a heavy gunfight between militants and security forces, officials said.

    The attack occurred just before 6 a.m. local time when attackers sped towards the front gate of the consulate, said Marie Harf, a deputy State Department spokeswoman.

    The attackers fired assault rifles starting a gun battle with Afghan security forces. During the battle, a truck exploded, Harf said, causing major damage to the front gate of the consulate.

    American consulate personnel took shelter in safe havens while U.S. security forces responded to the attack, Harf said. There were no U.S. casualties.

    Seven attackers traveling in two vehicles took part in the assault and all of them were killed, said Mohammad Ayoub Salangi, deputy Afghan Interior Minister.

    Three people, two local police officers and a local security guard, were killed, police and hospital officials said. Twenty others were injured.

    The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in an e-mail to CNN.

    U.S. Ambassador James B. Cunningham in a statement condemned the attack and lamented the Afghan citizens who lost their lives.

    "Many Afghan civilians were killed in the attack, along with others who work for the Consulate as contractors. We are deeply saddened by this senseless loss of life," he said.

    The Afghani Taliban would be dismayed to know they are now "Alqeida", according to the OP.

     

    (Cue the vague generalizations about all jihadists being "animals" in 3...2...1....

    Well, you see, the Taliban and Al Qaeda are allies in Afghanistan. Of course, we're now allied with Al Qaeda in Syria. We're also allied with the Muslim Brotherhood who are allied with Al Qaeda in Egypt and Libya but we're not allied with Al Qaeda in Libya.

    This is so confusing.

    You've got Al Qaeda on the brain.  It's not that simplistic.  There are plenty of other bad actors in these conflicts.

     

    But that's what we get for being the single most successful recruiting tool for jihadism in decades.

    why did we just allow a coup in that country?

     

    We didn't. Sometime other countries don't do what we want them to do. It's because we're not exceptional. Putin said so.

    Rubbish.

    The single most effective recruiting tool for jihadism seems to be wahhabi madrassas.

    Sorry you think so, but you'd be wrong again.

    But by all means, incite another war like iraq - like Krauthammer, et al. are calling for - and watch those recruitment numbers explode.

    Iraq and Afghanistan (along with Israel) were the bankrupting horrorshows that the 9/11 jihadists and bin laden could ever have hoped for and more.

    Here we are, 12 years later...out of money and the gopers threatening to default on the nation's debts, partisan gridlock over even mundane issues like judgeships, etc...

    No GOPer is threatening default, you made that up. Besides, Congress can't default, only the Treasury can and it would be their choice to do so.

    Thats true the most accurate way to descibe the terrorist is as islamic extremist!

    Whether they originate from N. Africa, Pakistan, the phillipines, asia, europe or the middle east.

    This thread is very telling.  If I thought every Arab with a gun was Al Qaeda then I would think Benghazi was a watergate-scope coverup too.

    Right. 

    Obama and Kerry outsmarted Putin.

    Gorbachev won the Cold War.

    and now, The U.S. is the single biggest creator of terrorists, not the Wahhabi madrasahs where they all seem to study.

    sigh.  I never knew Amercia was so bad.

    Bengazi is bigger than watergate. Watergate was a second rate burglary, and no one died.
