Two United States advisers who were shot dead in Afghanistan's interior ministry by an Afghan colleague had been mocking anti-US protests over the burning of the Koran, a government source said.
The description of the shooting - which led to NATO pulling all its advisers out of Afghan government ministries - came amid renewed violence in a sixth day of anti-American demonstrations.
Germany also said it had withdrawn its national and international staff from Afghan ministries as a "precautionary measure".
Describing the sequence of events that led to the interior ministry shootings, the source said the US advisers were "scolding the protesters and calling them bad names" as they watched videos of protests in Kabul.
"They called the Koran a bad book in the presence of (an Afghan colleague). After all this the guy had verbal arguments with the advisers and was threatened by them. He gets angry and shoots them. Eight rounds were fired at them," the source added, requesting anonymity.
That should fix it, for today.
Any excuse to murder infidels.
I don't believe anything the Afghan Government says. I don't even believe most of what my own Governent says.
Well that explains burning the Christians alive.. they called the Koran a bad book the Muslims were threatened by them. . . . Now I understand.
“Obama will apologize personally and have the families of the US officers extradited to Afghanistan for trial, the ungrateful Islamophobic racists.
That should fix it, for today.”
“The United States of America also condemned the attack in the strongest words, Pentagon said.” Obama has said nothing, the Pentagon is doing all the speaking...funny, you would think you might hear from our President but he’s busy with the abortion issues and stuff.
Meanwhile this could be the start of war. Scary.
Beowulf, please don’t be ridiculous. It’s a beautiful day here in DC, and our hard-working president is doubtless spending another well-merited day on the links at Andrews AFB. Do you seriously expect him to pay attention to trivial little issues like an impending World War III? Come on. Be reasonable. He has algae to think about!
What the heck are we trying to achieve? OBL is dead ! Wrap it up and come home, Nation building is a waste of lives, time and money.
US Official Visits Va. Mosque To Apologize For Koran Burning
Notice how the American media always has this story with the fact that the Koran was insulted? Yet in the Telegraph , uk media it called the death of the 2 advisers a execution.
did you know those 2 officers were in their office when they were executed?
I don’t recall reading that exact fact in MSM, just the fact that a Koran was insulted or some burned.
You got that right. And stop giving any of them anymore of our tax dollars.
(No they were NOT Nazi death camps.. I am constantly astounded by the BIG LIE that so many embrace. Yes it is true that people suspected of loyalty to the Imperial Government of Japan were confined to camps.)
"During the spring and summer of 1942, the United States Government carried out, in remarkably short time and without serious incident, one of the largest controlled migrations in history. This was the movement of 110,000 people of Japanese descent from their homes in an area bordering the Pacific coast into 10 wartime communities constructed in remote areas between the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Mississippi River.
"The evacuation of these people was started in the early spring of 1942. At that time, with invasion of the west coast looming as an imminent possibility, the Western Defense Command of the United States Army decided that the military situation required the removal of all persons of Japanese ancestry from a broad coastal strip. In the weeks that followed, both American-born and alien Japanese residents were moved from a prescribed zone comprising the entire State of California, the western half of Oregon and Washington, and the southern third of Arizona.
"The Relocation Program
"The United States Government, having called upon these people to move from their homes, also assumed a responsibility for helping them to become reestablished. To carry out this responsibility, the President on March 18, 1942, created a civilian agency known as the War Relocation Authority. . . The relocation centers, however, are NOT and never were intended to be internment camps or places of confinement . . . ."
Sorry (Not!) to disappoint any Lefty pukes who might be reading this but we really didn't beat to death and ship the remaining 110,000 people off in boxcars to die in death camps . . . . IT JUST DID NOT HAPPEN AS SO MANY LOVE TO SQUAWK ABOUT.
Wot? Their lives were disrupted? Well I think something like 14 million lives were disrupted here in America and -- what? -- two million American lives were ENDED by the war!
And an American-loving Salute! to the Japanese-Americans who like millions of other Americans fought to save Her. Who can dishonor these men by saying that they were forced to fight?
(No, I do not believe the Japanese just loved to be uprooted and moved into a strange area where they had to build their communities all over. . . True I WAS NOT there having been born only a year before -- though we infants had all been issued olive drab diapers and were on call for domestic assignments . . . . )
This is war defending against Islamism (political Islam, jihad and sharia law). We can learn a lot from the last Americans who were permitted by their government to WIN the war!
barry will apologize that the wounded soldiers were not murdered, just wounded.
In America we had the Occupy Wall Street protests that went on for months, producing only a few rapes and storefront smashing-ins.
In Afghanistan, Islamic fanatics are now in the sixth day of their Occupy NATO Military Installations and Embassies protests and the dead bodies are already piling up. If the relatively passive OWS crowd could sustain their relatively peaceful movement for months, imagine how long and bloody the Afghan fanatics’ killing spree against NATO personnel will be. Bring our troops home now.
I’m starting to wonder whether Obammie the Commie and his comrades orchestrated this entire event knowing the reaction it would have so that they could use that reaction as the mandate to pull up stakes very suddenly and get out of Afghanistan.
That enables him to say, “See, I told yuh I’d get us outta Iraq and Afghanistan, and I did.”
“Psst, what about all the other wars you started?”
Pull out and let these ignorant fools kill each other. And in the process use our weapons where it hurts on the way out. Animals, all of them.
Zer0 would love a war to save his pResidency, but it would have to fit some criteria:
1) The US would have to take the side of the Muslim Brotherhood and fight as mercenaries for free. This makes war in Afghanistan and Iraq highly unlikely, we will retreat.
2) It will have to please the left and wacko left, so it must be in support of Muslims of the Muslim brotherhood type and against anti Muslim Brotherhood Muslims that have made working diplomatic agreements with the US and/or Israel. War against Israel would be acceptable.
3) It needs few identifiable boots on the ground, to be short, and to not generate a need for a draft.
Trial? Why have a trial?
