Taliban guerrillas in Afghanistan are using more and more suicide bombs, noted NBC's Jim Miklaszewski, with a fivefold incidence in a single year. His unidentified sources in the military brass warned: "The upcoming spring offensive by the Taliban will be a critical battle for the future of Afghanistan and produce the bloodiest fighting since the US invasion."
Both Miklaszewski and ABC's Brian Ross replayed the same propaganda video from last October. It followed a teenage Taliban warrior building his plastique bomb, driving off to his death in his beat-up white Toyota sub-compact and then exploding in a fireball in the middle of a US military convoy.
It was without irony that ABC, later in the newscast, had Lisa Stark file a report on how dangerous the insurance industry finds teenage drivers to be--so dangerous that she gave American Family Insurance free publicity for its program to install drivecam monitors on the rear view mirrors of rookie motorists.
