It was a tragic day for Afghans and an unthinkable loss for the military families whose loved ones were just days away from leaving Afghanistan. It was also sad that the loss of life was met with the same old political finger pointing in DC. Terrorists attack America. And Americans attack each other. Our biggest threat is from within. I also couldn’t help but think that if all service deaths in Afghanistan had been covered this urgently and completely, we would have been gone a long time ago.
