"Pentagon officials are confident that the Haqqani insurgent network is behind the weekend attack on a combat outpost in Wardark province in Afghanistan that left five Afghans dead, including four civilians, and 77 American troops wounded. Pentagon spokesman Capt. John Kirby said that the U.S. has 'strong confidence' that members of the Haqqani terror network were involved, adding that there is also a 'very strong likelihood' that the operation was supported by top Haqqani leadership."
