KABUL, Afghanistan -- A soldier from the U.S.-trained Afghan army apparently turned his weapon on American troops in volatile southern Afghanistan, killing at least two U.S. soldiers, NATO officials said Saturday.
The incident is the latest that calls into question the allegiances of at least some members of the Afghan security forces, which the Obama administration hopes will be the key to an eventual withdrawal of roughly 100,000 U.S. troops from Afghanistan.
A NATO official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the matter is still under investigation, said the shootings took place late Thursday in southern Helmand province. The area has been the site of intense fighting between the Taliban-led insurgency and thousands of additional troops President Barack Obama sent to Afghanistan this year.

I infer that the perp was a Koran-reading Muslim. Evidently he disagreed with Obama on the meaning of jihad.
Pray for our troops. Protect them from our enemies abroad and at home.
I hope that they put four or five rounds through his chest.
Obama’s idea of an “isolated incident.”
Muslims murdering anyone who they can in an attempt to appease their bloodthirsty god. I have come to the conclusion that there is not a Muslim on the planet you can trust with your life.
A good friend’s son is in that area, part of the so called surge.
God help our heroes. These rules of engagement have emboldened our enemies.
Should have capped that Muslim rubbish then his family,friends and neighbors.
Muslims will be Muslims. If you are not a Muslim, they want you dead. The people living in this country better learn that and they better learn that quick.
The Afghani is dead now, right?
Kill every one of the pig-faced SOB's!!
Sorry, but I’m past ready to get our guys out of there, like yesterday. You CAN NOT be at war under a marxist who neither believes in it, nor intends to win it. Bring ‘em home. It frees us up to nuke the place.
Never turn your back on a Muslim and keep your weapon cocked and ready.
When American Muzzies mow down as many soldiers while in a GUN FREE ZONE while Shouting Allah Akbar and the Army can’t figure out his motive, we have to expect slaughter in a combat zone. Muzzies act like Muzzies where ever you find them.
tempting. Kind of a rock and hard place situation for us. This is what happens when you lose your offensive momentum IMO. To me, war only makes sense when you’re just moving forward killing everything in front of you until it’s all either dead or bowing down in front of you, surrendering unconditionally. None of that appears to be happening in Afghanistan. We seem to be stuck... between a rock and a hard place.
Absolutely true. You can't trust one of 'em. Be polite, be professional, and have a plan to kill every one you meet, be they cop, soldier, or civilian. Sudden Jihad Syndrome can break out at any time, any place.
