A tragic loss at any time, although I understand how the date might make it even more poignant.

RIP, and my sincere condolances to his loved ones.

Too true, too true. If it is fated among our respective rulers at present that we pull out of Afghanistan, then let's hope they can do it as quickly as possible and not prolong the killing just for the sake of finding political cover.
