Insider attacks targeting journalists. But who are we kidding? We were never on the inside. Jihad is jihad. Islam is Islam. And the failure to understand this by media and political elites invariably leads to disaster. We have seen Afghan police whom we have trained, armed and supported turn on our soldiers on a dime. Time and time again.
A longtime Associated Press photographer was killed and an AP reporter was wounded on Friday. As they were sitting in the car waiting for the convoy to move, a unit commander named Naqibullah walked up to the car, yelled Allahu Akbar Allah is Greater and opened fire on them in the back seat with his AK-47. He then surrendered to the other police and was arrested.
The terrible irony here is that the AP is the template for Islamic apologism. They self-enforce sharia, they do not criticize Islam, they scrub and whitewash jihad and will smear and defame anyone who speaks candidly about jihad and sharia.

After we withdraw our people, that place needs to be fumigated, a more useless spot on the planet cannot be imagined.
A reporter killed???? OH NOZ!!!! Lower all flags to half-staff, and announce some more shovel ready jobs.
3. Had jobs outside of their houses.
$. Could read and write.
5. Most likely not wearing burkas.
Anybody who goes to a subhuman savage country is out of his mind. All you will find there is subhuman savagery.
We know who this murderer is and he isn’t dead yet? Not the America I fought for. Oh, never mind, we know who killed our Folks in Benghazi and they are still sipping Tea and giving interviews. My mistake, sorry.
Female journalists in Afghanistan (or Egypt) are expendable.
(Sarcasm aside - prayers for their families and loved one... and yeah even the reporter who didn't die - and her family...)
Right at the start, Bush should have ordered a very large orphanage and boarding school to be built, surrounded by a large military base, near Kabul. Every orphan in the country would be sent there, along with every child from an Afghan family that wanted prosperity for their country.
Tens of thousands of children by now would have been raised to western educational standards in secular schools, with no hint of Islam. They would become the future government and military leadership, officers and NCOs, of the Afghan army, and business leaders.
And this would have been possible if there was a US Army “MacArthur” government to run the place. Not some primitive nonsense that never worked and never could that they called a government.
Musharraf in Pakistan actually offered to establish a concertina wire border between Pakistan and Afghanistan, which was roundly rejected by that jive-ass near-Taliban Karzai. And while that fence could not have stopped border traffic, it could have radically increased the degree of difficulty of Taliban to cross, and made the border a lot easier to police.
The next thing Bush should have done was to take advantage of Afghanistan’s tiny average wage to hire every unemployed man in the country, whether they wanted to be hired or not, to put them on gigantic infrastructure projects and keep them out of trouble. That would have cost only about $1b a year, far less than what we paid. Management of towns and villages would be turned over to the women, whether they wanted to or not. See how they liked to be in charge for a while. Bet they would have.
By now, Afghanistan would be well on its way to become a reasonable nation, with blossoming prosperity and productivity. Instead of the crap hole it remains.
