This report about the fallout of the Taverna attack in Kabul quotes extensively from AAN’s dispatch:

“This was an attack on foreign civilians targeted merely for being foreign – a rare occasion in this Afghan war,” the Afghanistan Analysts Network said in a report released Sunday.

“[It] may be a game changer, with particular consequences for aid work.

“[The Taverna attack] raises questions on how civilian aid, particularly through NGOs, can be provided – and elections monitored later this year – if soft targets are no longer off limits.”
