I love it. When even Afghans aren't waking up and figuring out that the bad guys will do anything to win, will exploit their own culture, then how in the world do we expect our GIs to do the same or to deal with these scenarios?
Earlier Sunday, Interior Ministry spokesman Zemeri Bashary gave new details of the attack, saying the two attackers had eluded police providing security to the conference by dressing up as a couple -- one in street clothes and the other dressed in woman's burqa. The man hid a Kalashnikov rifle and a grenade launcher by wrapping them up in cloth like swaddled baby.
"It goes against all customs for a man to search a woman, so the enemy took advantage of this," Bashary said.
