A suicide bomber wearing an Afghan border policeman's uniform blew himself up Thursday at a U.S. base near the Pakistani frontier, wounding five Americans, an Afghan official said.http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/2010-02-11-afghanistan-attack-americans_N.htm
The spokesman for Paktia province, Roullah Samoun, said the attack occurred after sundown in a barracks at a U.S. facility in the Dand aw Patan district in eastern Afghanistan, about 35 miles (70 kilometers) east of Gardez.
He did not identify the base by name or say what kind personnel are stationed there.
A U.S. statement said "several" U.S. service members were injured in an explosion at a joint U.S.-Afghan outpost in Paktia but gave no further details.
It's a bad sign for the Afghanistan mission that we can't secure our military bases and outposts.
