Missed.

A Not-Very-Smart bomb self-detonated outside the gates of Bagram AFB, missing VP Cheney, allegedly his target, by approximately half a mile but killing fourteen and wounding a dozen more.

No word yet if any bicycles were involved.

Any truth to the rumor that, after the blast, Cheney was heard asking about borrowing a shotgun to "go get the sumbitch responsible"?

Suicide vests.

They say the explosion was outside the front gate because it was at a security checkpoint down the road to prevent assclowns like this from getting close to the base.

The very worst of the attack is that the primary victims were the Afghni children that congregate around the gates essentially to beg.

That's the part that makes it hard to resist putting on my gear, heading out the gate to the market and investing in some quality assualt weapons (everything is FA) for some quantity hunting time.
