KABUL, Afghanistan - U.S. officials say the Haqqani insurgent network, which has ties to al-Qaida, is suspected of being behind some "insider" attacks by Afghan forces. Those attacks have killed or wounded more than 130 American and allied troops this year.<br />
Until now, officials had said the attacks seemed to stem from personal grievances against the allies or from Taliban infiltration.<br />
The officials had not previously cited suspicion of a Haqqani link.<br />
The Taliban publicly claims to be orchestrating the attacks.<br />
The officials said there is no hard evidence of a Haqqani tie to specific incidents but attack patterns point in that direction.<br />
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss inferences drawn from internal U.S. military analyses. They were not authorized to make the comments publicly.<br />
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton developed a blood clot in her head but did not suffer a stroke or neurological damage, her doctors said Monday. They say they are confident that she will make a full recovery.
Nearly a year after a stroke left him barely able to move the left side of his body, U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk is expected to climb the 45 steps to the Senate's front door this week - a walk that's significant not just for Illinois' junior senator, but also for medical researchers and hundreds of thousands of stroke patients.
