Revelation 6:3-4 NCV When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a red one. Its rider was given power to take away peace (prosperity, rest) from the earth and to make people kill each other (butcher, slaughter, to maim violently, in streets), and he was given a big sword (assassins sword, terrorist, loud, mighty, sore afraid).
Islamic terrorists attacked the Afghanistan Presidential Palace, killing three guards and wounding one. All terrorists were killed in the assault.
The Taliban said the attack was aimed at the Presidential Palace and the Ariana Hotel, home of the CIA’s Afghanistan headquarters.
U.S. Ambassador James B. Cunningham condemned the attack and reached out to the Taliban.
“Come to the table to talk to the Afghanistan government about peace and reconciliation,” Cunningham said in a statement.
No U.S. forces or staff was wounded. The attack is seen as a test of the Afghan forces a week after the international coalition turned over responsibility for security to the national army.
