“The Taliban commander Mullah Dadullah explained that bin Laden himself had supervised the suicide operation targeting Vice President [Dick] Cheney at Bagram Air Base during his visit to Afghanistan on February 27, 2007, an attack that killed nearly two dozen, including an American soldier. The U.S. military dismissed that claim but said that another al-Qaeda leader, Abu Laith al-Libi, was behind the operation, which seemed more of a confirmation than a denial of al-Qaeda’s role in the attack.”
