Cheney Unhurt in Taliban Bomb Attack

The Taliban in Afghanistan have claimed credit for a suicide bomb attack on a military base during a visit by Vice Pres. Dick Cheney that killed more than a dozen people. However, Cheney was unharmed:

There were conflicting reports on the death toll. Provincial Gov. Abdul Jabar Taqwa said 20 people were killed, while NATO said initial reports indicated three fatalities, including a U.S. soldier, a South Korean coalition soldier and a U.S. government contractor whose nationality wasn’t immediately known. NATO said 27 people also were wounded.

It was unclear why there was such a large discrepancy in the reports.

Didn’t we vanquish the Taliban before we went in Iraq? Oh, I guess not.

    Maybe this was part of “Darth Cheney’s” secret plan to instigate a war against Iran.
    With “Big Dick” being the sacrificial lamb, so to speak.

    Then, the liars and murderers in the White House could blame the Taliban attack as being engineered by Iran–never mind that the Taliban and Iran are deadly enemies.
    The White House spin machine has never let the facts stand in the way of telling a lie.

    But, like everything else these “Keystone Kops” of poltics touch, this also was a botched operation.

    On to Plan B. Let the MOSSAD pull a USS LIberty type of false-flag on one of our ships in the Persian Gulf.
