SECDEF Mattis Target Of Failed Taliban Missile Attack

Secretary of Defense, General James “Mad Dog” Mattis was the target of a rocket attack in Afghanistan. The attack miscarried in that it was too late. The General had departed. The attack was by Taliban and consisted of two missiles. There was some damage to equipment, but there were no casualties reported. ISIS was also quick to try and take credit for the failed attack.

How do you suppose someone in the Taliban or within ISIS came to know that the Secretary of Defense was at the Kabul International Airport Wednesday? NBC seems to know. Heck, they even know who to talk to in order to find out where the leak came from. How’s them apples? Being that this is Afghanistan, security has to be as lax as it was in the FBI offiv=ce under James Comey. In other words, everyone knew and everyone was talking and selling secrets.

As Written By Thomas Phippen for the Daily Caller:

The Taliban claimed responsibility for an attack on Kabul International Airport Wednesday morning targeting Defense Secretary Jim Mattis who was making an unscheduled visit to Afghanistan.

Mattis had left the airport by the time the attack started, NBC News reports, and no casualties have been reported.

The airport said two missiles were fired toward the airport at around 11:00 a.m. local time, and the U.S. embassy warns that the attack may still be ongoing.

“At 11.36 am two missiles were fired on Kabul International Airport from Deh Sabz district, damaging the air force hangers and destroying one helicopter and damaging three other helicopters, but there were no casualties,” airport chief Yaqub Rassouli said according to USA Today.

While ISIS also claimed responsibility for the attack, that doesn’t necessarily mean the group had any involvement in carrying it out………
