    4 killed and 4 wounded... bad guys got lucky for once
    "If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep the streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep the street so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. "

    How is that? Most of the rocket attacks on KAF hit outlying structures and there was no real damage. The only rocket attack I can think of that did kill someone was when it hit over by the American Gym. It didn't explode but the fragments did kill a Kenyan worker there. The last rocket attack that I saw while I was in KAF was when it hit the pizza hut. Luckily it was like 5am and no one was in there and no one was around it. But I still have some good pictures of it.

    The last time I was there was a few years ago. I won't get into details because of OPSEC reasons, but there was one month when I was there where it seemed like they were just getting lucky shot after lucky shot. Not much in the way of casualties, but they were hitting other things...

    I was there for 2 years and yes they have routinely hit "other" things. But for the most part they wouldn't hit anything of merit.
