A new beginning. They’re on the run. They’ve been decimated. Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Associated Press:

Taliban militants unleashed car bombs at the U.S. Consulate in western Afghanistan on Friday morning, triggering a firefight with security forces in an attack that killed at least two Afghans and wounded 17. The U.S. said its personnel from the mission were safe and that most of them were temporarily relocated to Kabul, while American forces secured the site.

The attack in the city of Herat — along with a suicide truck bombing in the country’s east that wounded seven Afghans on Friday — raises concerns of spreading insecurity in Afghanistan as U.S.-led troops reduce their presence ahead of a full withdrawal next year…

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi took responsibility for the Herat attack in a phone call with The Associated Press.

He didn’t blame Sunny Lohmann directly, but I think it’s safe to assume that this happened because of her awful Internet video that the Obama administration had nothing to do with.

When asked about this claim a few weeks from now, I will deny having made it, despite the fact that it’s a matter of public record.

Am I doin’ it right, Hillary? Was that okay, Barry?
