KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) -- Six American troops and civilians and an Afghan doctor were killed in attacks on Saturday in southern and eastern Afghanistan as the U.S. military's top officer began a weekend visit to the country, officials said.
In the south, three U.S. service members, two U.S. civilians and the doctor were killed when a suicide bomber detonated a car full of explosives just as a convoy with the international military coalition drove past another convoy of vehicles carrying the governor of Zabul province.
Another American civilian was killed in an insurgent attack in eastern Afghanistan, the U.S. military said in a statement.
The attacks occurred the same day that U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, arrived in Afghanistan for a visit aimed at assessing the level of training that American troops can provide to Afghan security forces after international combat forces complete their withdrawal at the end of 2014.

Anyone who wants a literate,and detailed,assessment of the Religion of Pieces should check out “Pat Condell” on youtube.He’s a Brit who has hits the nail right on the head in many videos regarding these animals.He’s also an atheist who does occasional hit pieces on religion in general (which I ignore) but his favorite target are mooslems.
That's real smart, kill the person who can save you when the U.S. leaves.
Ya know, I would say to leave now, and nuke the country from orbit, but you can't bomb them back to a century they haven't left yet.
I hear the word “Afghanistan” my mind thinks “Nuke it!”
Where is: Code Pink?
The Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly casualty
reports of the State-run media?
Probably, the same place the “homeless” are
during a DEMOCRAT Administration . . . invisible.
Usually the word “liberal” gets me to thinking the same thing.
