#3 Well, first the positive --someone found these vests which were located in three separate rooms. Someone was in the ball. On the other side, the security levels to get to the DOD HQ looks lke an Afghan version of Get Smart. Why have one guard when you can have 7? Lastly the targets were ANA by other ANA (proportedly). A properly worked media spin by the govt to underline what bastards these terrorists are -- ie the plotted massive deaths of Afghans might be strategically useful. I doubt that it will happen though, just more whining and handwringing about recent USA involved incidents - and thus reinforcing the negative media spin. Watch and shoot. Or listen for the bombs.
