Perhaps Only To CNN

I’m not sure what sort of MSNBC-like fumes they are breathing down in Atlanta these days, but the third paragraph of this horrific report tells you all you need to know about why CNN’s ratings are in the toilet

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) — At least three American hospital workers in Afghanistan were killed Thursday by an officer guarding the hospital, Kabul police said.

The three men killed were among four American workers shot at the CURE hospital in downtown Kabul, city police spokesman Hashmatullah Stanekzai said.

The police guard shot himself but survived, Stanekzai said. The motive for the attack was not immediately clear.

Good, sweet, kind caring volunteers working in a hospital.

Murdered by their “guard.”

UPDATE: Golly, per NBC it was a “Rogue Cop”

Well, nothing to be worried about here then, as it was simply one of Afghanistan’s several thousand “rogue cops”…

    I bet “Rogue Cop” will be one of NBC’s new series next fall.

    I was listening to Brant Hansen, the afternoon DJ on Air-1, on the way home. Brant has been to Kabul and had met Jerry Umanos, one of the doctors killed today. He described how they met: Brant arrived at the Kabul house during a power outage – pitch black – and all he could see was this guy’s smile. That was Jerry. He said within 10 minutes they were laughing – hard – as if they were old friends. That was the type of person Jerry was – making people feel at ease while he was helping women and children obtain healthcare. I just don’t understand why they want to kill someone like that.

    In The ‘Stan, “rogue cop” is a feature, not a bug.

    The contortions required to avoid saying the plain truth of things would put an Olympic gymnast in traction for weeks.
