A Taliban suicide bomber dressed as a laborer blew himself up at the NATO air base at Bagram north of the Afghan capital Kabul on Saturday. Officials said the bomber killed four Americans and wounded at least 17 people. According to Reuters, U.S. Secretary of State Ash Carter said in a statement that two U.S. military service members and two U.S. contractors were killed. He added 16 other U.S. service members were wounded, along with a Polish soldier who was part of the NATO mission. The attack was claimed by the Taliban, and underlines the foreign policy challenge that will face U.S. President-elect Donald Trump when he takes office in January. President Barack Obama had originally hoped to have all U.S. forces out of the country by the end of his term. However, he was forced to abandon that goal as Afghan forces struggled to contain the Taliban insurgency.
