Was the same policy in place when Rumsfeld went there?
Believe me, Panetta and US brass do NOT worry about US troops "fragging" their civilian leaders.
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.
