KABUL, Afghanistan A man in an Afghan army uniform opened fire on a group of Americans at a base in the south of the country, killing a U.S. soldier and wounding another, an Afghan military spokesman said Monday.
Spokesman Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi said the gunman was also killed in the shootout on Sunday. "Right now, an investigation is going on to determine whether he really was a soldier or someone using an army uniform. And if he was a soldier, what caused the shooting," Azimi said.

But the idea that anything other than surrender was possible after 2003-4 is foolish, in my opinion.
The truth of all the waste, all the blood, all the treasure for nothing is brutal. But if we can’t speak the truth, we can’t ever get out of this mess.
