Most joint U.S.-Afghan military operations have been suspended following what authorities believe was an insider attack Sunday that left four American solders dead, officials told NBC News.
Were to the point now where we cant trust these people, a senior military official said. So far this year, 51 NATO troops have been killed in these so-called blue-on-green attacks. Sunday's attack came a day after two British soldiers were shot dead by an Afghan policeman, Reuters reported.

I think we should let the islamderthals have their dirt.
Thank GOD!!!! Jeesh! How many of our men and women have died to this STUPID CRAP?????
ENOUGH APPEASEMENT! THEY DON’T WANT TO BE FREE! They want US to live under Sharia.
Bring the troops home. If The muzzies attack us......bomb them ALL TO HELL and LEAVE.
NO “nation building”. Enough of these $hitholes.
Uh, we can’t trust them? WOW! What a revelation huh? Should have asked the Russians how they got them to be trustworthy.
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
Quite a victory for their side.
I agree FREE DIRT FOR AFGHANITARDS!!!!!
They’re just now figuring this out? Never trust a group of fanatics who hate you, and want to see you dead.
IMHO, vacate and leave behind several megatons of glass wielding fusion material.
But our dear leader understands these things, he went to Cairo, and said it would be a turning of the leaf... I am sickened by the loss of the Officers and the Aircraft, but more so the lack of leadership from Obama down.
Unlikely there’s any clear cut solution involving the ME petroleum reserves and the prospect of unseemly alliances with other non-Islamic adversaries of the West.
this should go viral
if 10’s of 1000’s of people did this it would make a difference
Not to be a real stick in the mud, but training Afghans is the mission that keeps us in Afghan.
It’s one of the prongs of the counter-insurgency strategy. Take over an area and leave local good guys to keep it under control.
Those “local good guys” are busy killing our guys, so we stopped doing the “train them” piece of the “leave local good guys to keep sanitized areas under control.”
So, why are we now in Afghanistan if we just now gave up on the only sane mission that makes sense.
Maybe the people who buy the bulk of that oil should protect it because we’re petty low on the list of mideast oil users.
NO SHRIT SHERLOCK! Never trusted them to begin with.
Least of all our supposed CIC.
A lady told me her grandson came back from a tour in Afghanistan and told her, “Granny, we are not even allowed to shoot at them. We have to shoot into the air over their head if we think they are coming at us.”
The first rule of fighting is NEVER LET YOUR GUARD DOWN.
We need to start building family quarters in Afghanistan. We call it PENTAGON FORWARD and move half the Pentagon over there with their families. This thing is over in a month. Their wives would be screaming at them so loud they’d wear ear plugs at home.
First the Brits, then the Russkies, now the USA.
We cannot tame these animals unless we have the will to kill a whole lot of them. We don’t. Of course, that didn’t work for the Russkies either.
The afghanitards are happy living in an 8th century tribal society in which women are for procreation and little boys are for fun. If we aren’t willing to nuke ‘em, bring our tropps home.
I suppose they need to go to Muslim sensitivity training since it appears this admin is blaming our troops for their own deaths. This is just awful!
It Rewards the terrorists!
You get more of the same behavior!
Instead, segregate the locals, communicate electronically.
Use more drones.
Screw complaints about “collateral damage”.
Tell them its their failed they can’t be trusted.
And it took how many dead soldiers before they got it through their thick skulls?
Worst combat loss of aircraft since Vietnam 40 years ago.
Obama’s Rules of Engagement have lost the war for us in Afghanistan. The Obama worshiping media has refused to publicize that our combat losses in Iraq and Afghanistan doubled overnight the day after Obama was sworn in and have continued at that pace throughout his term in office.
We actually had lower casualties during the early days of heavy fighting than we have had with the peace time occupation under Obama.
As soon as Obama took office reporting on the war and the number of troops killed and wounded ceased despite the fact that death rate actually doubled under Obama due to Roes and mismanagement of the war effort, kind of the homeless problems disappear when a Democrat takes office.
quite a difference
And turn Karzai over to the Taliban on the way out.
Muslim sensitivity training?! What’s wrong with these generals? Can you imagine General Patton talking like this?
Even Fox News Radio is spouting the same regime line. They sound like msnbc
Actually, the war reporting ended almost to the day that Bush introduced the surge.
From that time in '08, the media knew we had won in Iraq; they switched almost immediately to the economy and from that point on they drove the markets down to collapse.
However, you are correct that since numbers of killed and wounded started back up after Obama's election we have heard virtually NOTHING about numbers.
At least Hannity and members of “The Five” are speaking loudly to the Admin’s prioritization of the Qur’an over the Constitution.
Bring the troops home. Use the $avings for Sequestration.
Nutshell . . . from Day 1
Were to the point now where we cant trust these people, a senior military official said.
My, how things have changed.
He's talking about the administration right?
My son has been home from Afghanistan since the end of January 2012. While he was there he often alluded to the fact Afghanis could not be trusted and it was important to keep at least one eye on them at all times. These morons in the current administration wait until 51 of our soldiers have been murdered, and then state that we NOW cannot trust "these people"?
OBAMA MUST GO!!!
If we want to look at the time period since Obozo took office, then, according to a site I visit, there have been 1,576 KIA's of American troops since Feb 2009.
In contrast, from 2001 through Jan 2009 there were 630 American troop KIA's.
OBOZO MUST GO!
Imo, ever putting boots on the ground was a mistake. Except for the initial assault to get Osama. And they should have gone after him into Pakistan. They ended up doing that anyway.
I understand your position, but I disagree. We needed boots on the ground. The problem was there were too few boots. And, you’re correct regarding the need to go into Pakistan. We need to stop this politically correct BS of trying to make these people like/respect us. That will never happen. The best we can ever hope for is to make these evil b@st@rds fear us so much that they don’t dare pop their heads above ground.
I made me a new pic today.
My nephew is one of The Leavenworth Ten.
The ongoing political BULLSHIT there?
Kill every moslem down to the last tit-sucking babe.
Also time to cut our losses in Afghanistan and get outta there. Let them figure out the meaning of civilized behavior and how to treat those who were trying to save them. I say “Let ‘em go”.
Once we kicked the taliban out, we should have left, leaving them with the message....if we come back it will be with nukes.
If odumbi wins, Israel nukes Iran and in 2016 we get a real Conservative in the White House. win win.
When I suggest we needed more boots on the ground it was not a suggesting for nation building. We fought WWII the correct way to fight a war - total and complete destruction of the enemy’s ability and will to fight. There is NO other way to fight a war. There is NO such thing as fighting a “kinder, more gentler” war. I would have no problem with a complete anhilation of Islam.
