Intelligence reports indicated that the Taliban had the ability to carry out suicide attacks near the main US base in Afghanistan even before a bloody bombing during a visit by US Vice President Dick Cheney, NATO said. Col. Tom Collins, the top spokesman for NATO's force in Afghanistan, said suicide bomb cells were present in the capital, Kabul, just 50 kilometers (30 miles) south of Bagram Air Base. "We know for a fact that there has been recent intelligence to suggest that there was the threat of a bombing in the Bagram area," Collins told reporters Wednesday. "It's clear that there are suicide bomber cells operating in this country. There are some in the city of Kabul."
