The Taliban claimed responsibility for the truck bombing that killed four Afghan civilians and wounded 77 U.S. troops on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. The Pentagon says they had help from the powerful Haqqani network. Pentagon spokesman George Little said it was deplorable and called on the attacks to stop. The network rose to prominence during the 1980s Afghan-Soviet war with the help of the CIA.
