February 27 2110

FOB Fenty is named for the serviceman who lost his life supporting OEF. Commonly referred to as Jalalabad Airport, this heavily armed base was the sight of a car bombing this morning that took the lives of 9 people, most of them locals. We will know tomorrow if the local labor that ISI employes were victims. The Taliban has acknowledged responsibility for this attack and calls it revenge for the Quran burning incident. Facing the explosion from 600 yards, the concussion wave is significant, my ears rang for an hour. Much of the x-ray screening equipment installed by our team was destroyed as was anything within 200 feet of the blast.
