Yet another insider attack. There is no way to prevent such attacks, because there is no way to distinguish Afghans who are happy to work with the U.S. and the Afghan regime of Hamid Karzai from Afghans who are happy to infiltrate the Afghan army in order to murder Americans and supporters of the Karzai regime in the name of Islam and jihad. And no attempt is made to distingish the two groups in any case, because such an attempt would be “Islamophobic.”
“US official: Americans killed in Afghan attack,” by Robert Burns, Associated Press, August 5, 2014:
WASHINGTON (AP) — A U.S. official says “about a dozen” of the victims of an Afghan insider attack on Tuesday were Americans, and at least one American was killed.
The official says many details of the attack early Tuesday were still unclear and the numbers could change. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss details of the attack by name on the record.
A man dressed in an Afghan army uniform opened fire on foreign troops at Camp Qargha, a base west of the capital, Kabul. Among the wounded was a German brigadier general.
Gen. Mohammmad Zahir Azimi, a spokesman for Afghanistan’s Defense Ministry, said a “terrorist in an army uniform” opened fire on both local and international troops. Azimi said the shooter had been killed.
