The headline says that the killer was a “man in Afghan uniform,” but there is no reason why he couldn’t have been an actual member of the Afghan military, which is rife with jihadis who hate the Americans who are training them. These “inside the wire” murders keep happening because there is no reliable way to distinguish an Afghan Muslim who supports American troops from one who wants to murder them, and Obama’s politically correct policies prevent authorities from making any attempt to do so anyway, because it would suggest that Islam is not a religion of peace. So ever more U.S. troops are sacrificed to this madness.
“Man in Afghan uniform kills 1 US soldier, 1 US civilian,” Fox News, October 19, 2016:
A man wearing an Afghan military uniform killed a U.S. service member and an American civilian outside the capital city of Kabul on Wednesday, officials said.
The incident occurred at Camp Morehead, a U.S. special forces base, a U.S. defense official told Fox News. It was described as an “inside the wire” incident.
A NATO statement said another U.S. service member and two U.S. civilians were wounded in the attack and were in a stable condition. A defense official told Fox News the shooter opened fire at the entrance to the base, where he was later killed.
“Anytime we lose a member of our team, it is deeply painful,” the statement quoted General John W. Nicholson, Commander of U.S. Forces-Afghanistan. “Our sympathies go out to the families, loved ones, and the units of those involved in this incident.”
The Afghan defense ministry launched an investigation into the incident, Dawlat Waziri, spokesman for the Afghan defense ministry, told reporters.
The victims were conducting duties as part of the larger NATO mission to train and advise the Afghan security services, and an investigation was being conducted to determine the exact circumstances of the incident….
