"It's hard to discuss our estimates of the size of the IED [improvised explosive device] or other tactics used by the insurgents in public without giving the enemy valuable information, but I can say that our investigation leads us to believe the IED was considerably larger than the average IED used against mounted patrols," said James Graybeal, a command spokesman in Afghanistan.
"More must be done to identify and flush out the threats," James Graybeal, a NATO spokesman in Kabul, told The Washington Times. "There is no quick fix. What we must do, we and the Afghans together, is to strengthen and augment our protective measures. While they are individually insufficient, we believe they will collectively reduce the threat."
