This is unbelievable. The Obama Administration blamed the friendly fire attacks in Afghanistan on US troops.

The New York Post reported, via Pat Dollard:
Afghan security forces, our supposed allies, are slaughtering American troops. Thirty-three soldiers have been killed by green on blue attacks this year alone. The situation is so bad that the training of Afghan forces has been temporarily suspended.
How has the Pentagon responded?
By blaming our troops.
Top officials believe culturally offensive behavior is the motivation behind the killings, so its stepped up Islamic sensitivity training for our troops.

Obama has reached new heights of scumbaggery
Romney should jump on this.
Culturally insensitive? Must have been eating an MRE with ham in it.
It was the film; yeah, that’s it, the film.
So He could not say for over a week about Ambassador Stevens and who did what to him but within a day or two he KNOWS the answer here ..
BRING THEM HOME NOW.
Cultural insensitivity? This is what happens when we try the whole hearts and minds thing with an enemy that HATES US with a deep and abiding passion.
This president has no “cultural sensitivity” toward the American soldier or marine (or any branch for that matter)and is incapable of understanding who these men are and what drives them.
This article is very weakly sourced, quoting only unidentified "earlier" interviews" for some quotes, with no source at all cited for the comment above.
Before I go blind with rage on this one, I'd like some more concrete sourcing.
Well!What do you all expect.The Ass said he was going to be on the side of the Muslims.I guess he’s proved that with the many things he’s done.
They are turning on us because president pretentious has made it clear that we won’t be there in a year, but the Taliban will. It really is that simple.
And while the afghans are by no means sophisticated, or even civilized, they aren’t stupid. They know what will get them killed.
Military officials who have done tours in Afghanistan are outraged that brass would even suggest US troops are partly to blame for their own murders.
I would like to see a public affairs officer explain to the press where showing the bottom of your shoe to a Muslim or shaking with your left hand was legitimate grounds for murder, growled one US Army official.
They say their Muslim partners would still resent them even if they followed their Islamic protocols to the letter.
The cultural affronts excuse is a bunch of garbage, a senior US Army intelligence official told me. The Afghans that know were doing all this PC cultural sensitivity crap are laughing their asses off at our stupidity.
Explained the intelligence official: Theyre killing us because were infidels occupying Islamic lands. Its what the Koran and every imam over there is telling them, and no amount of cultural sensitivity is going to stop that or change the fact that were infidels.
If I ever meet whoever suggested this, I will deck him.
Were I a parent or spouse of someone who’s died over there, I’d be looking for payback. Even someone who was wounded. Or got a toothache. Or a speck of dirt on their hands.
There comes a time when you decide who you are and whom you value.
Where can I get one of those shirts?
I despise this pos poseur in chief. If it were up to me, I’d set his butt down in the middle of the ME with no guards.
Workplace violence once again.
Terrorise and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Quran
[8.12] When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.
Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax
[9.29] Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.
Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them
[2.191] And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.
The Family of Imran
Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable
[3.85] And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.
The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them
[9.30] And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!
The Dinner Table
Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticise Islam
[5.33] The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement,
Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them
[47.4] So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and afterwards either set them free as a favor or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates. That (shall be so); and if Allah had pleased He would certainly have exacted what is due from them, but that He may try some of you by means of others; and (as for) those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will by no means allow their deeds to perish.
The Family of Imran
Muslims must not take the infidels as friends
[3.28] Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends rather than believers; and whoever does this, he shall have nothing of (the guardianship of) Allah, but you should guard yourselves against them, guarding carefully; and Allah makes you cautious of (retribution from) Himself; and to Allah is the eventual coming.
Just unbelievable!!! OIF vet
“Top officials believe culturally offensive behavior is the motivation behind the killings, so its stepped up Islamic sensitivity training for our troops.”
The video trailer made the “insiders” do it.
BTW: Tonight, 60 Minutes had a segment on “insider attacks.” Interviews with Karzai and Gen Allen
“Al Qaeda fighters are rushing to Afghanistan.”
US military’s own reports detail increasing Al Qaeda activity.
