The U.S. State Department has condemned a suicide attack in eastern Afghanistan's Konar Province that killed an employee from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), three soldiers from the International Security Assistance Force, and one Afghan civilian.

In a statement, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said USAID worker Ragaei Abdelfattah's "work over the last year was critical to our efforts to support Afghanistan's political, economic, and security transitions and was an example of the highest standards of service."

Two men wearing suicide vests approached Abdelfattah and the others and detonated their explosives on August 8.

Clinton mentioned Abdelfattah was "so committed" to his work in Afghanistan that he had already volunteered to serve a second year there.

The peaceful muslims are at it again blowing themselves up. These madrasahs are really cranking out the sicko's. They should be so proud.

Although any loss of life is regretted, perhaps the Secretary for State could explain to us how an aid worker was "critical to our efforts to support Afghanistan's political, economic, and security transitions" - that sound like more than just aid work to me. Why was someone willing to sacrifice 2 men to achieve this goal, and why was the word "insurgent" not mentioned?

please note Hillary did not shed any tears about killing of three NATO minion soldiers. That is because Hillary is so bright she only cries her eyes out for the killed peaceful Wahhabi Sunni activists in Syria and elsewhere. Hillary is so bright she understands when NATO minions die the humanity wins.
