Cheney Safe -- Is Left Complaining Yet?

I've not gone wading in the muck over at Kos or DemocrtICK Underground yet to see, but I suspect that there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth over this story about a failed attempt on the life of Vice President Cheney.

A suicide bomber blew himself up this morning outside the main gate of the United States military base at Bagram, just north of Kabul, where Vice President Dick Cheney had stayed the night. The attack killed and wounded American soldiers and Afghan and Pakistani truck drivers and laborers waiting for access at the gate. The explosion happened at the first security gate of the base, far away from where Mr. Cheney was staying, and he was not injured.

There are conflicting reports on the number of casualties. An Afghan guard said he counted up to 15 dead at the scene, including three American soldiers, and 12 others wounded. But a report from the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan said that four people were killed in the blast, including the suicide bomber, and NATO says only three were killed, including an American soldier and a coalition soldier.

The Associated Press reported that the Taliban claimed responsibility and said Mr. Cheney was the target of the attack.

The bomber was carrying the explosives on his body and was blown apart, the Afghan guard said.

I, for one, am glad that the Vice President is safe and sound, even as I mourn the deaths of innocents murdered by this Taliban killer.

Let this serve as a stark reminder of the nature of those we fight in Afghanistan, Iraq, and around the world. And be aware that many of those opposed to the war are going to reveal their true colors in their response to this attempt on the life of the Vice President.
