Addendum


by Turkana

Add this to my earlier post, below. From Agence France-Presse:

The United Nations led worldwide condemnation of the bombing of India's embassy in Afghanistan, which left 41 dead in one of the worst attacks in the country since the fall of the Taliban.

The UN Security Council called it a "reprehensible act of terrorism" and expressed concern about the continuing threat posed by the hardline Islamic militant Taliban, who ruled the nation from 1996 to 2001.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, in Japan for the summit of the Group of Eight wealthy nations, said he condemned the attack "in the strongest terms" and called for those behind it to be brought to justice.

"No political agenda or grievance can justify such reprehensible means," Ban said.

A suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden car into the Indian embassy in the Afghan capital Kabul on Monday, killing 41 people and wounding nearly 150 others.

Senator Obama? The bad guys got away with it, and they're continuing to get away with it. Because of Bush. Because of Bush's enablers, such as McCain and the corporate media. The entire approach to fighting terrorism and defending national and international security has failed. Because of Bush. Because of Bush's enablers, such as McCain and the corporate media. We need a paradigm shift. Care to offer one?
