SITUATION UNDER CONTROL
Al Qaida blamed for bombed bridge in Afghanistan.
Hell, yes I'm going to make a big deal of this. Afghanastin has been touted as a rousing success. In wuickly, clean, Out. Objective achieved.

A little too easy. The CIA has known that the terrorist group has been reforming and still is a very cohesive threat.
i would agree it was a complete success btw. Up unitl the point when it wasn't. Until it wasn't and we lost our minds on the long, arduous trek to Iraq.

It's not yet on CNN. But this is a seperate story on
a helicopter crash which killed four American soldiers.

Fox has it here.

MSNBC has it here

UPDATE 00:41 - ABC has it. BBC had it before FOX. CNN has it now, but not on the front page, not even a link. But it should be note their report is not AP like the others.

CNN report:
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (CNN) -- At least eight people are dead after a land mine destroyed a bus in southern Afghanistan.

According to Afghan army commander Khan Mohammed Khan, the Friday incident struck 10 kilometers (6 miles) east of Kandahar in the Juhlaman district, when the bus ran over the mine on the road. Other details were not immediately available.

So far there have been no claims of responsibility, although local police are blaming Taliban or al Qaeda fighters.

Khan blamed Taliban remnants and forces loyal to Gulbedin Hekmatyar, a former prime minister during the civil war of the early 1990s.

Hekmatyar is an Islamic fundamentalist who later took refuge in Iran and now, according to Afghan and U.S. intelligence sources, has sided with Taliban and al Qaeda units to fight American troops.
