Today is the one-year anniversary of the deadly bombing at Abbey Gate, an entrance to the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, which was subject to a suicide bombing that killed an estimated 170 Afghans trying to escape the draconian rule of the Taliban and 13 U.S. service members.
