Blast Kills 9 at Afghan Base, Including 5 from NATO

"For the second time in as many days, a suicide bomber used an Afghan National Security uniform to elude early detection and approach his target, killing five NATO service members attending an early Saturday morning meeting at the headquarters of the Afghan 201 Corps in eastern Afghanistan.

The bombing was one of the worst attacks of its kind, NATO and Afghan military officials said, It was one of the most lethal attacks involving the penetration of a military installation by an assailant — a style of attack that appears to be increasingly favored by the Taliban.

In November 2010, six American soldiers were killed by a man wearing a border police uniform at a military training area in Nangahar, and a year earlier five British troops in Helmand were killed by an Afghan wearing a police uniform."

"At least 1,424 American soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan since the US-led invasion of the Asian country began in 2001, according to a recent report by the Associated Press"

Clinton also warned of a "violent spring fighting season" in Afghanistan, saying that the withdrawal of troops will benefit the Taliban as there is the possibility of a rise in the militants' attacks"

"The counterinsurgency strategy behind the war — trying to win over the Afghans by protecting them from the Taliban and building roads, schools and civil institutions — is a failure"

“The Wrong War,” which has landed at just the wrong time for the White House and Pentagon. In the book, subtitled “Grit, Strategy and the Way Out of Afghanistan,” Mr. West passionately defends the military, but argues that the United States is burning billions of dollars trying to nation-build in Central Asia.

“The question isn’t what the Marines or the Army do, the question is, why are they doing it, and what’s the end state?” Mr. West said. “My objection is, they’ve stayed to become the government.”

Levels of radioactivity have risen sharply in seawater near a tsunami-crippled nuclear plant in northern Japan, possibly signaling new leaks at the facility

"Government said Saturday that radioactivity in the seawater has risen again in recent days. The level of radioactive iodine-131 spiked to 6,500 times the legal limit, according to samples taken Friday, up from 1,100 times the limit in samples taken the day before

Increase in iodine-131, which has a relatively short eight-day half life, could signal the possibility of a new leak.

The announcement came after a magnitude-5.9 earthquake jolted Japan on Saturday morning."

"Geophysicists agree that the jolts and rumbles will not stop any time soon, but they only differ on whether they will go on for months or years"
