This is not going well:

A suicide car bomb blew up at a US military base in Afghanistan and killed nine civilians Monday, as the country marked Independence Day amid warnings of possible attacks.
The blast did not penetrate the base in the eastern town of Khost and Afghan security forces were able to prevent a second suicide attack moments later, the US-led coalition and Afghan officials said.
"Insurgents detonated a vehicle-borne IED (improvised explosive device) outside a US base in Khost province today, killing nine Afghan local nationals and wounding another 13 according to initial reports," the coalition said in a statement.
