Afghan President Karzai Escapes Assassination Attempt!

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Suspected Taliban militants attacked a ceremony attended by the Afghan president on Sunday, unleashing automatic weapons fire that sent foreign dignitaries and senior members of the government fleeing for cover.
Three people, including a lawmaker, were killed and eight were wounded. President Hamid Karzai, Cabinet ministers and ambassadors escaped unharmed, the presidential palace said.

Hmmm, now this is the same president that has been HIGHLY critical of the U.S. policies in the mideast as of late....Could this have been CIA related? Nothing mentioned in this article about his stance against the states continued occupations of the region...I wonder if someone is trying to silence him?


Karzai, who has led Afghanistan since soon after a U.S.-led invasion ousted the Taliban regime in 2001, has been targeted by assassins before and is constantly shadowed by a phalanx of bodyguards.

The attack came despite unprecedented tight security for Sunday's celebrations.


For days Kabul has been ringed by checkpoints with security forces and plainclothes intelligence officials searching vehicles. The area where the ceremonies took place had been blocked off by troops, tanks and armored personnel carriers.

Another good find, DD. I certainly wouldn't be surprised if you see more of these blatant attempts on certain people who are a hinderance to the agendas. Along with many more bodies showing up, which are determined to be a result of 'suicide.'
