It still amazes me how little attention was paid to the Taliban attack on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan. The U.S. had six Harrier jets blown up and two damaged. That's about $250 million in damaged jets, give or take a few million. More importantly, there were also two U.S. marines killed, including a Lt. Colonel, as well as another nine or so wounded.

Seems like we should be making a bigger deal about this.
