Defense Secretary Leon Panetta called Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Saturday to discuss the rising number of "insider" attacks in which Afghan security forces have turned their guns on American and other coalition troops.

Spokesman George Little said Panetta encouraged Karzai to work with U.S. commanders to ensure more rigorous vetting of Afghan recruits. Little said Panetta and Karzai agreed that American and Afghan officials need to work together to address a problem that has intensified in recent days.

In the latest incident, an Afghan police officer on Friday shot to death two U.S. servicemen during a training exercise in the western province of Farah.

They set us up for target practice. The number of dead reported on the nightly news, the reporters taking pictures of the coffins returning home is only done when a republican president is in office. The scumbag media working for "thier" cause that will eventually do them in if thier boys ever succeed. Panetta prods Afghan president on insider killings, we will tell you when to stop after the president makes a speech and demands action from you.

Leon is such an astute but relentless negotiator. I have no doubt this will turn out for the best. We are in the best of hands.

5:20 am is too early for sarcasm

From the end of the article:

On Friday it was disclosed that U.S. troops have been ordered to carry loaded weapons at all times in Afghanistan, even when they are on their bases. The order was a precaution against insider attacks.

So, until Friday, our guys were walking around w/o loaded weapons?! Mind boggling.

Traitor-in-Chief’s ROEs were designed to get our troops killed.

Don’t be deceived. The Afgan people really love us. Same as with the Iraqis. They love us to death.

Karzai is more concerned with building up his foreign bank accounts and keeping a fueled up, fast plane to jump on when the Taliban comes for him. He does not want to get “Najibullah’d.” Who can blame him? I’d be fixing the potholes in Kabul as well...

RE: "Traitor-in-Chief’s ROEs were designed to get our troops killed."

.. and it did not help when the jerk announced that our troops will be mostly out of there in a few months. The Afghans have to know what that means for anyone (and their families) who cooperated with the Americans.. so murder Americans and run to the nearest Taliban camp.
