Afghan who killed three U.S. Marines in 2012 to serve over 7-year prison sentence
By Rowan Scarborough
An Afghanistan man has been given a 7-1/2 year prison sentence for murdering three U.S. Marines in a forward operating base in Helmand Province in August 2012.

I hope he will “enjoy” his prison stay, and that it will seem to him to be much longer than his sentence really is .
This can not stand!
Zero and Holder will have this sentence overturned.
(no need to say, sarc off)
Prayers up for the Marine’s families.
“Khudairaham, an aide to a local police chief who worked at the FOB, went to the base gymnasium and opened fire with an Ak-47 rifle. He later proclaimed he had joined jihad, according to attorney Michael J. Bowe.”
Used to be someone like that would not have been taken alive.

“The attack took place in the base gym at Forward Operating Base Delhi. Buckley, 21, died along with Staff Sgt. Scott Dickinson, 29, and Cpl. Richard Rivera, 20.
Ainuddin was employed on the base by Sarwar Jan, an Afghan police chief with a dubious past. He served as Jans tea boy and was never vetted by military authorities.”
I know. He should have been tried here.
As long as our troops are in Crapistan these incidents will continue.
Green-on-blue attacks in Afghanistan: the data
By Bill Roggio and Lisa LundquistAugust 23, 2012
Data last updated on June 24, 2014
II. Data Summary
III. Timeline of Green-on-Blue Attacks in Afghanistan, 2008 - 2014
Attacks on Coalition forces by Afghan forces — the so-called green-on-blue attacks — are emerging as a major threat in the 11-year-old war in Afghanistan. These attacks from within have increased dramatically within the past two years, and in 2012 they accounted for 15% of Coalition deaths.
As the United States prepares to complete the withdrawal of its combat troops from Afghanistan by the end of 2014, the US military and its Coalition partners are increasingly shifting security responsibilities to Afghan forces. The success of this security transition depends greatly on the strength and competence of the Afghan military and police. Accordingly, the training of the newly-mustered Afghan forces has become a linchpin of Coalition strategy, which in turn hinges upon the work of trainers with Afghan security forces. This situation has placed Coalition troops at increasing risk as the drawdowns continue and Taliban efforts to infiltrate Afghan forces are being ramped up.
In 2012, attacks by Afghan forces on Coalition forces surged; in 2012, they accounted for 15% of Coalition deaths. In 2011, green-on-blue attacks accounted for 6%; in 2010, 2%; in 2009, 2%; and in 2008, less than 1%.
Although NATO commanders have stated that an estimated 90% of the attacks are due to cultural differences and personal enmity, the attacks began spiking in 2011, just after President Barack Obama announced the plan to pull the surge forces, end combat operations in 2014, and shift security to Afghan forces. The Taliban also have claimed to have stepped up efforts at infiltrating the Afghan National Security Forces.
Thanks for that info. Very frustrating, and infuriating.
Like Iraq, those bastards will fold up like a cheap suit as soon as we are out of there!
W really f’d up! His stated purpose should have been to go in to Afghanistan for one or two years and kill as many jihadis as possible and leave TOTALLY!
Notice I say KILL! There would then be no need for the farce known as Gitmo!
And there would have been thousands less of our boys (and a few girls!) killed and wounded and maimed and crippled!
7 1/2 years???? OMG!!! The “Just Us” Dept at their corrupt best!
The Marine Corps abandonment and mistreatment of this Gold Star family and the result of this sham legal proceeding is a shameful travesty, Bowe said in a statement. The Buckley family will not stop until this murderer is brought to justice in the United States, and laws are put in place to ensure no other Gold Star family is ever similarly abused.
soebarkah will pardon him.
Just when you thought you couldn’t get more angry and more disgusted...
I’m hoping he’ll have an ‘unfortunate accident” upon his release from prison.
So let me understand this. In seven years, the dead Marines are going to come back to life, right? What? They’ll still be dead? Then why would this piece of waste material be out of prison? I say that when a victim is restored to life, that’s when a killer is freed. Until then, he stays in.
