Cheney Not A Casualty In The Waronterra

Are we still winning?

A suicide bomber attacked the entrance to the main U.S. military base in Afghanistan Tuesday during a visit by U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, killing up to 23 people and wounding 20 more.

The Taliban claimed responsibility and said Cheney was the target.

Talking to reporters later, Cheney said he heard "a loud boom" and was informed by Secret Service agents that there had been an explosion.

Apparently there was an underground bunker where Cheney was kept snug after the terra-ists tried getting to him.
