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.

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.
