(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."

Two more GI’s killed. And the moron-in-chief wants to raise their health care costs, forcing them into his beloved obamacare. Lest the debacle completely blow up in his face as its destined to do. My advice to members of the US military, currently serving in Afghanistan, claim Conscientious Objector status and leave that country to the savages they are.
Obama’s deliberate projection of weakness emboldened the Afghan savages to murder more Americans. Obama might as well have been holding the gun.
‘__________is not loving.’
Of all the names given their god, not one is ‘love. . . ‘
Bring the troops home.
Afghanistan is unworthy of them.
Why would they "hold off" their own?
“Its the Muslim men who want us out of there. Many gains for women will go down the drain.”
Seeing what men have been reduced to here, I have to agree with the Afghan men. Our politically correct culture that produced “women’s lib” is thankfully disappearing because of it. The new “Americans” replacing us aren’t so progressive.
“If the Taliban are to use their assets (the people they have infiltrated into Afghan army units) they have to use them now”
They have to use them now to force our retreat; otherwise they’ll need them for the consolidation of power (as Chiang Kai-Shek did, saving his best troops & equipment for the civil war AFTER the Japanese were defeated).
“An evacuation like Saigon was chaos; but at least there were still Vietnamese army troops holding off the enemy till we got away. Are there going to be any Afghan army troops holding off the Taliban while the last US planes lifts off from the airport?”
In Saigon the ARVN started firing on the planes/helicopters leaving. Maybe the midnight retreat a la Iraq is better.
“When we get out of Afghanistan, the women there will suffer immeasurably.”
They are Muslim; this happens all over the Muslim world. These same women breed suicide bombers and such; they are part of the problem.
In extreme Islam, women are slaves and no more 'part of the problem' than the children are who have bombs strapped to them by the men.
There are many countries where Muslim women can at least be educated, and don't need to wear burkas and stay at home.
As for your misogynistic "women breed suicide bombers," there's no point in discussing a rational issue with a non-thinker, so I won't even try.
The number of Arabic-speakers & Spanish-speakers born within our borders since your post should terrify you; if it doesn’t, that’s OK by me; hablo espanol.
The Chrstians that defend you are the enemy...keep it up - the defenses have been dropped.
btw, hablo Espanol tambien. Sheesh. Strange stuff.
