Unlike certain unnamed civilian public officials, I’ve personally engaged in a bit of tongue-tying restraint when it comes to blogging about things military over the entirety of this blog; open access publishing born in my personal frustration with US leadership, military and media at the start of this insane, politically-motivated Bush pre-emption.
But, within that restraint, I have hinted about the possibility of domestic political and war theater security breaches.
Clearly this morning’s “direct attack”, a Taleban winkle described as “rare” and “huge” by eye witnesses, on the main and “most heavily guarded” US Afghan base during an unannounced Vice Presidential visit suggests the odd Allied “secure” phone could actually be an alQaeda party line.
According to the BBC:

The Taleban said they carried out the attack and that the attacker was trying to get to Mr. Cheney, who was on an unannounced visit to the region.

If recent history is to be our guide, Team Bush’s next inexplicable push-me-pull-you response to the Cheney assassination attempt will be either another crack down on the already eroded domestic “freedoms” of ordinary American citizens or enhanced funding to alQaeda-related Iraqi insurgents.
