Ok so the Talaban tried to blow-up the Vice President today:
A suicide bomber attacked the entrance to the main U.S. military base in Afghanistan Tuesday during a visit by U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, killing up to 23 people and wounding 20 more.
The Taliban claimed responsibility and said Cheney was the target.
Now this event rightly calls for a super-freak-out by the news media. Maybe they can spend some time on the fact that the Taliban is gaining strength and Afghanistan is again a Breeding Ground For Terror.
