"Put simply, it's quite sad. Afghans as a whole want a better life and we are here to help support those desires by building infrastructure, and continuing to support the government they have elected," said U.S. Army Col. Rafael Torres, International Security Assistance Force Joint Command Combined Joint Operations Center director. "Violent attacks like this only end up hurting the Afghan people."
