Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred).

Rhino_man: hasty ambush: [polination.files.wordpress.com image 850x648]Definitely has nothing to do with the fact that alQaeda was sending its fighters to Iraq to fark with us, and thus were more able to fark with us in Afghanistan when the war in Iraq ended...[themcglynn.com image 346x340]Nope... nothing to do with that at all.
jaytkay: Ask a teatard to point out Afghanistan and Benghazi on a map./ I know it's mean, but still
LonMead: Gyrfalcon: So is Obama being blamed yet?I thought it was because of a YouTube video.
CPT Ethanolic: Great, this will probably mean everything gets shut down again here in Kandahar. (Been shut down since WED because of the 9/11 anniversary).

The idea that we can't swear on a website where you can say those things seems silly.

Iczer: Gyrfalcon: So is Obama being blamed yet?$100 says they also try to bake it into some royal class derp by attempting to link it to 9/11 too.
Notabunny: Pin Fiften Clob: It's beginning[secret_signal.jpg]Obama orchestrated this attack to keep the Republicans from voting to shut down the government. It makes you wonder who Obama is going to attack to put off the debt ceiling vote in November.
