South Carolina Father of 6 Killed in Terror Attack at Afghan Airport…

When is a Terrorist Attack not a Terrorist Attack?  When it’s carried out by the Taliban who the White House claims is not a terrorist group….  or something.

Matthew-Fineran-jpgSUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) — A South Carolina man was killed in a terrorist attack in Afghanistan Thursday, according to his family.

Matthew Fineran, 42, of Summerville, was killed in a shooting, his family confirmed. He was the father of six children.

A spokesman for Praetorian Standard Incorporated says three of its employees were killed in a shooting at the airport in Kabul. A fourth employee was wounded, according to the company.

The Pentagon says the gunman who killed the three American contractors in an attack Thursday at the Kabul airport was wearing an Afghan uniform.

“On the shooting, first of all, our thoughts and prayers of course go out to the families of the victims: a tragic and grim reminder that Afghanistan still remains a dangerous place in many ways,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said.

Kirby said the shooter was also killed.

Fineran’s wife said her husband was working security. (read more)

    … Father of 6 Killed in Terror Attack at Afghan Airport…’ When is a Terrorist Attack not a Terrorist Attack? Can we expand that to ‘when is a terrorist attack not a terrorist attack in Afghanistan?”.
    Hmmmmm….let’s try: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” Barack Hussein Obama, ‘The Audacity of Hope’. Perhaps he was referring only to moderate Moslem terrorists.

    Respectfully: He placed himself in a highly dangerous venue where the risk of being killed is present 24/7. Now his six children have been deprived of their father. How did that happen? And we see his company has “a specific focus in Afghan mining operations.”

    Afghanistan is rich in natural resources, particularly some minerals. not to mention it leads the world in opium production which meets the demand for heroin and generates mind boggling amounts of money for those who control the heroin trade.

    Why are we in Afghanistan? As in all matters, follow the money. Some people derive enormous wealth from our presence there, but they’re not the ones who actually go to Afghanistan. No, that pleasure is left to mercenaries who contract out their services. The pay is good, but you have to be alive to take advantage of it.

      Europe and Russia are the main consumers of heroine so we should make sure they get a good supply. It is in our American interest to do so.

    • Respectfully, you are correct. The guys that go do these types of “private security” gigs know exactly what they are getting into, as do the families. That is why they are highly compensated, and assuredly, highly insured when they go. I know quite a few guys who engage in “private security” and they all have high confidence they are coming home.

      It is what it is. They are aware of the risks when they sign on. It is still sad when the risk is miscalculated.

        Lib, nicely said. A certain % of the human population needs risk, “the life.” If they were not in the Middle East they would be somewhere else.

      What you say may or may not be true. However, the focus of the article was the White House refusing to call the Taliban terrorists.

      People who ask why we are involved in the Middle East are loons. The first Gulf War was 1990. You have had 25 years to figure it out.

    Today US Army Delta troops deployed in Kirkuk to assist the Peshmerga in taking back the oil fields from IS. Reported only by the Kurds at the airport. We will never know if the took any casualties, and this action will never be acknowledged.
