KABUL, Afghanistan, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- An Afghan soldier, apparently angry over the burning of Korans at a U.S. air base, fatally shot two U.S. troops and wounded four others, Afghan officials said.
The International Security Assistance Force said in a statement two military personnel were killed in eastern Afghanistan Thursday by "an individual wearing an Afghan National Army uniform" but didn't identify the troops' nationality.
CBS News said an Afghan official said the dead and wounded in the attack in the eastern province of Ningarhar were American. The official said the shooting seemed to be motivated by the burning of Korans at the Bagram Air Base north of Kabul, but did not elaborate.
Haji Mohammad Hassan, chief of Khugyani district in Ningarhar province, told CNN, "We don't know who started the shooting first and what kind of guns were used, but we have started our investigation to find out the details of the incident." The War in Afghanistan

It is so past time to pull the hell out of there and let the country disintegrate into the chaos it deserves.
Keep Janet Napolitano out of the investigation because she knows it is another example of “workplace violence”. -tom
If Obama gets credit for killing Bin Laden, then why doesn’t he get the credit for burning the Korans?
Burn some books - Obama apologizes.
Kill American soldiers - ?????
Oh, but we need to apologize to all muslims just like our leader did profusely..... sarc..

Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Do not count on them. Leave them alone.
I think we have spent long enough validating the thinking for ourselves.
Like Clinton (Somalia) Zero only accepts credit. Blame is assigned.
He will grovel before the enemy and prosecute as many American soldiers as it takes to satisfy them over nothing, but murdered American troops don’t cost him any sleep and he won’t require any explanation from his Brothers for the murders of infidels.
Nuke them from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
(By `them’ I mean the enemy—Afghan and Obama.)
It’s a damn shame we spilled a single drop of American blood in any of those shit holes. We have a massive air force capability and nuclear weapons. USE’EM!
Who issued the press release informing the muslims that the Korans were burned? That information should have be kept secret. Whoever did that is a traitor and caused the death of these troops.
If he killed Osama how can he apologize for the burning of the Koran! HE DID NOT KILL OSAMA! OSAMA DIED IN 2004!
You can’t make a pet out of a wild animal Sponge Bob.
Now all we need is a Spongebob version of “Atlas Shruggs”.
Blow up everything we’ve built (and any other infrastructure that might exist), destroy any equipment and denature any food or fuel that might be left behind, poison the poppy fields, put Karzai’s head on a pike in Kabul, then pack up, and go home.
Leave the Afghani’s like we found them - impoverished dark ages savages with industrial era weapons living under utter tyranny.
Karzai probably ordered it.
