(CBS News) KABUL - Two U.S. troops have (sic) were shot dead by three Afghan gunmen Thursday at their base in the southern Kandahar province, and two of the three shooters were Afghan National Army soldiers - another blow to a U.S. strategy pinned on direct partnership with Afghan forces.
The two Afghan troops who opened fire were killed by U.S. troops, and a third shooter, a teacher at the joint U.S.-Afghan base, was wounded.
From last night:
(AP) -- President Barack Obama says his apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai (HAH'-mihd KAHR'-zeye) after U.S. forces accidentally burned Muslim Qurans has "calmed things down."
But Obama tells ABC News that "we're not out of the woods yet."

So, to date, have more of these Koran burning killings occured before or after the first “apology”? It would be a good barometer of whether Obama made things better or worse.
Yes pray for the troops. But what’s better is get out of the hell hole...
Things are turning brown for Obama in his chosen war. If he isn’t going to fight best get the troops out of that mess.
Way I sees it—Its about time to come home. It was a noble experiment in Nation Building but it just didn’t work. Sorry, but these folks are just too different from us—If burning a few Korans can cause this much ruckus they aint playin’ with a full deck. Let them be ruled by the Taliban and see who that works. They are not ready for civilization.
Are then men (and women) of decency in the Pentagon?
As if he actually gives a damn. He’ll be partying. Priority one. Do not interfere with obama’s party time.
“Things are turning brown for Obama in his chosen war. If he isnt going to fight best get the troops out of that mess.”
Now this is what a quagmire looks like Senator Kennedy!
You know I was watching al Jazeera and they reported this story over an hour ago. Silly me I thought they were reporting the story from 2 days ago. So much for the U.S. media.............
Two more lives lost. This is ridiculous. It’s one thing to feel that the Quran was disrespected and objbect. Lord knows Obama would see to it that it didn’t happen again. It’s another to take human lives over it. How many people are dead in addition to the six Americans? Thirty plus, right? A loving God, even if the Bible was purposely disrespected, would not want people to be killed over it. He would judge the people accordingly himself. The god these fanatics believe in is not loving.
Obama on TV: “ The Apology To Afghans Has Calmed Things Down”
Obama, you are a miserable, deceptive and dishonorable SOB.
JUST resign in disgrace! Lying in the face of the American people is disgusting.
March 1st, (CBS News) KABUL - Two U.S. troops were shot dead by three
Afghan gunmen Thursday at their base in the southern Kandahar province,
and two of the three shooters were Afghan National Army soldiers -
another blow to a U.S. strategy pinned on direct partnership with Afghan
SIX US troops were assassinated, while you were bending over to the drug-dealer Karzai.
Just order the American military to come home NOW, and stop pumping billions up Karzai’s a..
Its the Muslim men who want us out of there.
Many gains for women will go down the drain.
I'm not suggesting that we should stay in Afghanastan for that reason, but it does underscore the absolute hypocrisy of the feminists.
You know - the same ones that supported Bill Clinton so strongly.
“The blood of these two soldiers is on the hands of the Commander in Chief.”
Newt Gingrich: The president of the United States doesn’t apologize to the enemy
So I see two things from this:
- It’s OK for Muslims to kill Americans, but not OK for Americans to burn the Quran.
- Our pretender-in-chief apologizes for our troops accidentally burning some Muslim paper, but doesn’t condemn their killing of our troops.
Kind of puts it all in perspective, doesn’t it???
I support Rick Santorum, but yes, when the man is right, he is right: Speaker Gingrich was indeed correct in stating those things about Afghanistan and the liberatees turning on the liberators now, all over this Korean Burning Crap, and the two of them ought to beat that drum till the cows come home, or at least until Super Tuesday and in every TV interview and every radio appearance and demand VOA air it in Pashtoon headed for Afghanistan, and also use it in speeches. Brilliant. Well said. I doubt Romney will have much to say, and Ron Paul? Why he would apologize more than Obongo!!!
I have to ask, Are our troops walking around that crap hole unarmed?? I know it is hard to defend yourself from a worm that waits until you turn around then shoots you in the back but every single one of out troops should be carrying either a locked and loaded service rifle or an M9 pistol at all times even in the areas that we think are secure. Hell they should be carrying a loaded pistol to the shower with them. These animals are not to be trusted under any conditions.
Do I remembr a saying that used to go something like “Kill them all and let God sort them out”? My memory must be fading or something.
Since he “calmed things down”, I guess he will be getting a tee time for this afternoon. I think it is time to get out of that hell hole.
