The Taliban's Alleged Iran Connection

Afghan President Hamid Karzai brushed off a recent assassination attempt (al-Jazeera) by rather nonchalantly gesturing to those gathered before him to sit down so he could continue his speech, despite the nearby barrage of rockets. One week later, a bomb set off in central Kabul killed twenty-four (NYT), making it one of the country's worst suicide attacks since the overthrow of the Taliban in 2001. Lionel Beehner
