USAID employee and Sudanese driver shot dead in an attack that "occurred around 4 a.m. local time as the car was heading to a western suburb of Sudan's capital, Khartoum."
If the USAid guy was truly a diplomat, he would have had an armed escort. The USAid diplomat in Afghanistan was a former oil executive, and traveled with a Stryker in front, and in back, full battle rattle, riding in an armored Toyota. Of course,with all that backup, (the diplomat) was never on time to any minister-level meetings! : )
So either Sudan is not important to the Halliban, or John got sacrificed for a GW4.Judging from a lack of response from US SecDef, SecState and CiC, John was wasted. Maybe they'll hang his portrait in the staff conference at Ronald Reagan Building. Quite sad for Abdel-Rahman Abbas's family, who will receive no death compensation.
Really tragic to think how many John's & Abdel's, GW's $183B tax grift will spawn, designated as it is, for, "other unspecified national security purposes."

NAIROBI, Kenya (CNN) -- Gangs of young men armed with machetes are roaming the streets in Kenya as post-election violence threatens to engulf the country. Horrific attacks are being reported, including the torching of a church where people who had sought refuge were burned alive.
Much of the violence is between supporters of Kibaki from the majority Kikuyu tribe and backers of opposition leader Raila Odinga, who is from the Luo tribe.
The ethnic violence, previously rare in Kenya, is reminiscent of the strife that led to the Rwanda genocide.
Get the real stories here: b and b real from MOA has been all over this. b real is the go to man for all things Africa, as far as our imperialism and manipulation of resource wars.
