Prince Harry is the confirmed reason for the Taliban’s attack on an Afghan military base that killed two U.S. Marines. Taking credit for the attack, the group admits the prince’s presence was the reason behind that particular target.
According to a report from RadarOnline, it was just one week ago the Taliban announced its intent to either kill or kidnap the British prince.
Fortunately Captain Wales, as Harry is known in the British Air Force, was a mile away from where the attacks took place. Instead of being on the Camp Leatherneck base where U.S. Marines are stationed, he was instead on Camp BastionÂ—a huge base adjacent to Camp Leatherneck.
“We attacked that base because Prince Harry was also on it and so they can know our anger,” Taliban spokesman Qari Youssef Ahmadi said. “Thousands more suicide attackers are ready to give up their lives for the sake of the Prophet.”
Fortunately the Taliban’s information wasn’t accurate and Harry wasn’t where they thought him to be.
Do you think the royals will demand that Harry leave Afghanistan following this purported attempt on his life? Even worse than his naked photo scandal, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles are no doubt distraught over this piece of information.
