When I heard of the news that General Dempsey's plane was struck in Afghanistan, I just thought, "Those Afghans are tired of the war, so they decided to take their resistance to another level, but they went nowhere with their attack."
But there is more to the story, as it turns out. Much more.
On Friday, August 24, 2012, Gordon Duff, senior editor of Veterans Today, wrote:
"Today, General Dempsey, Chairman of America’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, the man who flew to Tel Aviv and informed Netanyahu that America wanted no part of his scheming against Iran was the subject of an assassination attempt in Afghanistan.The U.S. military and media have swept this story under the rug, each for their own different reasons probably. I can't really blame them. This is embarrassing stuff.
This wasn’t an act of terrorism or Taliban militants. It was a “mob hit” against someone who failed to kiss the feet of Netanyahu. His response was to unleash killers, not a fact for the public but a fact just the same, one the American military knows very well. Netanyahu has a problem with “hubris.”
The culprits, “militants,”managed to escape undetected from the most sophisticatedly defended real estate on earth, the perimeter of Bagam Air Force Base.
Lucky for them they attacked at night, a time when America’s 5th generation night vision, ground radar and other detection systems were mysteriously disabled.
The rocket detection systems, early warning blimps with ground penetrating synthetic aperture radar and the continual coverage by UAV drones using infrared detection, $2 billion in technology on this one perimeter alone, cost the plane of America’s top military commander and wounds were sustained by two crew members."

The official version is that Afghan militants carried out the operation. Apparently, such operations against high-level U.S. military officials by Afghan militants are not "unusual" in Afghanistan.
But that's not plausible.
No disrespect to Afghan militants, but penetrating U.S. defenses, especially on a sensitive site, is a very tricky and difficult maneuver. As always, Mossad is the number one suspect.
Hillary Clinton also survived an assassination attempt recently, in Israel of all places.
What is it with these Israelis? They just love to stir up trouble, don't they?
Well, if you seek trouble, trouble is going to find you.
