Female Suicide Bomber Responsible for Ranger Deaths in Afghanistan

When Islamists complain that our troops are "humiliating Muslim women" simply by searching them, remember this:

One man appeared. Reports from the battlefield suggest he dropped to his knees and lifted his shirt to show the U.S. forces that he was not wearing a suicide bomb vest.

As several members of the Ranger unit moved toward the man to begin questioning him, a woman wearing a suicide vest emerged from the house and blew herself up, killing several members of the unit instantly, along with the dog, and injuring others....

The four killed were Army Rangers Sgt. Patrick C. Hawkins, 25, assigned to Company B, 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, at Fort Benning, Ga.; Pfc. Cody J. Patterson, 24, assigned to Company B, 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, at Fort Benning, Ga.;1st Lt. Jennifer M. Moreno, 25, assigned to Madigan Army Medical Center, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., and attached to a joint special operations task force as a Cultural Support Team member; and Special Agent Joseph M. Peters, 24, assigned to the 286th Military Police Detachment (CID), 5th Military Police Battalion, Vicenza, Italy.

RIP.

Meanwhile, Sec. of State Kerry is in Afghanistan to talk to Karzai who continues to blame the US for his f*cked up sh*thole of a country:

Mr Karzai has accused Nato of failing to bring stability to Afghanistan.

"On the security front the entire Nato exercise was one that caused Afghanistan a lot of suffering, a lot of loss of life, and no gains because the country is not secure," he told the BBC Newsnight earlier this week.

It's time to leave Afghanistan to the Afghans. Let them find another scapegoat to blame for their problems. And if the Taliban come back or al Qaeda sets up training camps again then we simply bomb them out of existence until the memory of Afghanistan is no more real to us than Carthage.
