Two members of the U.S. military were shot dead on Saturday inside the heavily barricaded Interior Ministry in the centre of the Afghan capital, Afghan security sources said, as anti-Western protests raged for a fifth day across the country.
It was not immediately clear who killed the Americans, said one Afghan security source. They were gunned down during a scuffle, another source said.
"American and Afghan troops were present at the time of the shootout, but we are unsure who killed them," a senior Afghan security source told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
A spokesman for NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said they were aware of "an accident" in central Kabul, but declined to give more details.

And the Obama apology in 5...4...3...
Could you imagine if General Eisenhower or even greater, General Patton apologized to Nazis for US troops burning copies of Mein Kampf that Nazi prisoners were using to communicate with each other, with the intent of killing US troops!!!!!!!!!!!
GET THE TROOPS OUT NOW!!! If Barry wants Troops send ACORN or the mysteriously quiet Code Pink!!!
Because facts are inconvenient. The wrold is now ruled and ran by regimes of deceiption.
So let me see if I’ve got this straight:
burning books (intentionally or unintentionally, I give a rats *ss) = killing Americans?
And the U.S. president does nothing?
This idiot makes Jimma Carter look like Churchill.
I really anticipate another American hostage crisis with this boy in charge.
I suspect he has a plan. The plan is to force submission of the West to Islam through weakening the US and its allies, imposing a world view that the US is guilty of a multitude of past and present sins, make the US pay for those past crimes, and establish a Greater Caliphate that will impose Islam and Shariah law on the infidel.
Why? Obama wants another peace prize no matter who has to die for him to get it.
re: ‘i’m sorry’
if i were king id say i found my secretary of defense...right on

I totally agree. He is weakening this country and muslims are using our rights against us, and more and more mosques are popping up around the country. They are even suing due to property owners not wanting to sell land.
Muslims are no longer just using suicide vests. They are in gov., (WH) business, judicial, medical, CAIR, colleges. They breed while we abort.
Show the infidel you come in peace, but have the sword ready when the time is right.
So, I’m sure a few of our Bibles have defintitely been burned throughout the Middle East, yet we dont’ go on killing rampages.
These savages need to be dealt with in a way that is fitting.
I don't know the answer to that question, but it should be obvious to anyone who observes Obama's actions as to whom he prays to.
You suspect correctly.
Writing in the Quran was the desecration, but it was done by the Muslims themselves.
A desecrated Quran is required to be destroyed by burning. All the Americans did was to identify the desecrated Qurans and process them in accordance with the Muslim rules for disposing of desecrated Qurans, i.e., burning.
According to wikipedia, you're right. One of the things I hate about Islam is that their demonic cult has compelled me to learn more about them than I ever wanted to know.
Writing on the pages of a Quran is considered to be a deliberate act of blasphemy, punishable by death in some countries, Afghanistan being one. A defiled Quran cannot be thrown away, shredded, or pulped. The "proper" disposal is to either bury or burn the book.
Instead of apologizing, General John Allen should have make a public statement saying that the blasphemers who had dared to deface and defile the Qurans were immediately beheaded by Afghan security. The end.
And yet there is a push by the idiots like McCain, Lieberman and Graham to take on Syria and Iran. More of the stupidity of the Democracy Exporters that infest both parties.
It’s still all over the internet about that incident. Just saw it for the first time .... just saw the Fox News report .... very intriguing.
That lesson is simple. Withdraw. Suddenly and completely.
We have no interest there whatsoever and we CERTAINLY don't have any friends we are obligated to protect.
Yesterday, Krauthammer was in a rage about the “craven apologies” by us. The reason the West apologize ALL the time is out of fear. His rant was classic. Christians allow crucifixes to be put in urine in the name of art. Mormons allow jokes about their religion. Why? Because we (royal “we”) don't slit throats, rampage in the streets, burn down Mosques with people in them, etc. etc. Krauthammer is still waiting for a apology from just one leader of the 56 Muslim countries in the UN for the treatment of the Christians in Egypt.
Me, well I will not honor a religion that honors Honor Killing. As a woman from the West I find Islam offensive.
