Afghan militants fired rockets into an American base in Afghanistan, hitting a U.S. Joint Chief of Staff's plane, military officials said Tuesday. U.S. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey was not in the plane, and no one was injured during the attack at Bagram Air Field on Monday night. Dempsey, who traveled to the country for talks with NATO and Afghan commanders on a series of recent rogue shootings, departed the base on Tuesday.
