I have a good deal of material in the archives at Jihad Watch that I go back to and paste in to new articles, because the same things just keep happening over and over again, and no one in any position of authority or power ever gets a clue. And here we are again. This time I’m not going to go back and paste in what I always say about these incidents — that the military has no adequate way to distinguish a “moderate” Muslim who will work with Infidels from a jihadist who wants to kill them, and that political correctness prevents it from even making any attempt to do so. Instead I am writing this, pointing out that no amount of disconfirming evidence, no amount of reality, ever shakes the iron dogmas that the learned analysts and official Washington take for granted. They will keep getting our soldiers killed in this way in Afghanistan, because they cannot or will not think beyond their ridiculous assumptions about nation-building and winning hearts and minds and Islam as a religion of peace, no matter what.
“Attacker in Afghan uniform kills NATO trooper,” from The Associated Press, May 11 (thanks to Bill):
KABUL, Afghanistan””NATO says an attacker wearing an Afghan army uniform has killed one of its service members in the country’s east.
The NATO statement provided no details about Friday’s attack and did not give the nationality of the service member killed. NATO usually waits for member nations to provide details about troop deaths.
The coalition says an investigation is under way….
Oh, good. Then we can all go back to sleep. Nothing to be concerned about here, folks! An investigation is under way!
