25-year-old American Anne Smedinghoff Killed in Afghanistan

Just so tragic:
He said his daughter relished the opportunity to work directly with the Afghan people and that she volunteered to go to Kabul because she felt there was "a lot of good she could do there."
This weekend, the 25-year-old was trying to do just that -- delivering books to a school in southern Afghanistan -- when a suicide bomber smashed into her convoy Saturday. She is believed to be the first U.S. diplomat killed since the September attack in Benghazi, Libya.


  1. One more totally unnecessary death in this endless conflict.

    1. Worth noting that it's in Obama's "Afghan Surge" Afghanistan.
