KABUL, Afghanistan An Afghan police officer killed at least 10 of his fellow officers on Saturday, a day after six U.S. service members were gunned down by their Afghan partners in summer violence that has both international and Afghan forces questioning who is friend or foe.
A day earlier, two Afghans shot and killed six American service members Friday in neighboring Helmand province in the south where insurgents have wielded their greatest influence.
In the first attack, an Afghan police officer shot and killed three Marines after sharing a pre-dawn meal with them in the volatile Sangin district, according to Afghan officials.

oh. 2004, breaking all records.
2007, another record crop.
2008, bumper crop.
2011, Bumper crop (60% increase).
Someone is collecting their data *after* harvest, in the lean couple of months :).
You will, after each bumber crop, see one or two big captures - to show the govt is up on the task. Then everyone can be happily drugged out of their skull for the enxt year.
If it wasn’t for Levin, I wouldn’t have heard about the US soldiers killed.
Monies, from the meager poppy crop, for the Taliban for HME supplies has made IED’s very valuable here, so much so that they'll risk exposure recouping a compromised emplacement to their own decimation.
Idiotic orders should be ignored. Your son is a good and courageous man. God protect him and his men.
Air, land, SEA. They are part of the Navy, not the Army, and it is important to them.
I’ll bet the 6 officers were prevented from going to the meeting armed because it may have given the appearance of intimidation.
No. This started with Petraeus in Iraq, trying to be Alexander the Great. I personally like the way God told the Israelites to go into the promised land, but that was because they were sacrificing their children by burning them alive. Kind of like abortion. The only legacy Afghanistan might have from the Greeks is their boy abuse and disregard for women.
He is very wise and tell him as a first deployment completed mom, I love him. :)
There were 2 separate incidents. The first 3 lost were Marine Corps special ops with another wounded. There are conflicting stories. No word from the DOD.
Yeh -- its task of providing price support for its main export by reducing supply to drive up the price.
And include Mecca, Medina, Qom and a few other holy sites with those nukes. End Islam, when they can no longer complete the Haj their religion will die out like others have.
There are criminal warlords that control most of the poppy harvest and with the Taliban’s help a cut of the profit is realized for their terroist efforts.
A 10% harvest doesn’t make up the difference of price drive up.
In my area, this 10% of normal harvest has made the Taliban’s efforts more costly.
Calling a beery Marine in a bar “soldier” would be a good way to find out.
