According to reports we're getting now the target -- that attack was a local politician who until now survived numerous assassination attempts.
That politician apparently was killed in today's attack crossing the wires just a few moments ago here.
One thing you notice scathing new report claims that US taxpayer dollars.

They've employed members of the enemy to protect our troops over there and that they're working against.
RUS troops isn't that terrible situation and he's in the front of the Fox News national security analyst she was the former deputy assistant secretary of defense under President Reagan.
I hate seeing it feels like we're getting a story like this every -- -- that that would show.
That our tax dollars an hour and our hearts really Aaron with of course -- US troops over there but that we're paying some people who are working against them.
-- and -- why -- Afghanistan a year ago.
It was pretty clear that that the Afghans are looking at the US presence has an employment opportunity for them as one of the governors told me.
But in your country one man works for peacefully in my country one man works seventeen you believe you know I'm not at all surprised that you're seeing that money that -- -- Protection money basically that we're playing some of the militias.
Turns out then to go in the hands of the Taliban because this part of the world her -- is always hedging their bets you look at the report -- that -- had just in the last few days.
That in Pakistan.
That the Pakistan intelligence services have a connection to the Taliban -- very fact on one hand helping us fight the Taliban on the other hand.
They're working with the Taliban encouraging them to fight against us so it's not -- unusual dynamic and that part of the world frankly it's a dynamic we don't gaps.
We're not very good at playing games like -- And -- the only advantage I can see to -- my -- is that the General Petraeus.
Is able to use the fact that this is a part of the world where people switch sides all the time to our advantage and it's not clear.
That he will be able to do that.
-- -- -- -- their guerrillas into this in explaining that KT YS Pakistan.
Why did their best interest to play Apple's side to give a little bit here to tell -- a little bit here I have people who keep everybody in the game.

When the Pakistan -- supported us they helped us they funneled money in the 1980s remember Charlie Wilson's war.
But Pakistan is we're helping us train and create.
The freedom fighters the mujahideen who later became the Taliban we were attempting to get the Soviets out of Afghanistan that worked.
But afterwards the mujahideen and the Taliban's stuck around they invited al-Qaeda in.
When we then went in to into Afghanistan in 2001.
We went to the -- standings and we fed the pakistanis.
What if you don't help us without kayak and getting that Taliban we're gonna I'm an activist -- -- so what -- Pakistan their -- will help you no problem there.
But at the same time they have there's a longstanding ties.
To the Taliban so they're playing both sides -- what -- we yet.
Well I think we give General Petraeus what he's asked for.

-- able to afflict some of these Taliban groups -- -- -- fighting against us -- fighting with us against the -- irreconcilable.
Taliban and that's great but I think we need to constantly reassess.
How we're doing because.
Otherwise we could be there you know hands bloody years and continue to be played both sides.
And the problem with that is mark that we got out of -- we've got to worry about we've got to worry about Pakistan now nuclear weapons we've got to worry about Iran's nuclear weapons we've got to worry about -- different -- have when he needs to get tested yet the numbers of people on a grand ideas he's asked some more he didn't get what they want it and he does have the rules of engagement that he wants I think that is going to be -- -- a sky.
He's a friend of mine and you've seen what he's done an Iraqi turned it around.
If he doesn't it is not working and I think he'll be the first one the talents high kicking the clown always great attack that bank now watch we'll season.
