Eleven of the dead were civilians and one was an Afghan police officer, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.
At least 84 people, including members of Afghan security forces, were wounded in the attack, which struck a shop-lined road between the Indian Embassy and the Interior Ministry, said Health Ministry spokesman Ahmad Farid Raaid.

Taliban or Al Qaeda kill 11 civilians with a car bomb, its routine for them - and doesnt seem to hurt their recruitment or support. Our troops arent allowed to bring fire that might possibly harm a civilian - it will erode our support among the Afghan population.
What am I missing?

You're not missing a thing and that's why Obama needs to decide to either go all in to win or get all out and declare he lost.
It was Obama that changed the ROE and since then the troop death toll has nearly doubled than any other time of this war.
