    In Afghanistan, fratricide-style insider attacks are calling into question U.S. counter-terrorism strategy.The U.S. security debacle in Libya has rightly been scrutinized for the past several weeks. The murder of ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in the Benghazi consulate on September 11 demonstrated the abysmal level of protection for State Department officials in the North African country. An equally devastating story, however, has only partially surfaced from Afghanistan—the “insider attacks” on Western troops by their putative Afghan partners. These assaults hold extraordinary implications for America’s future anti-terror campaign throughout the Middle East and Africa. Such fratricide-type killings stab at...

    " At least one Afghan police officer turned his gun on NATO troops at a remote checkpoint in southern Afghanistan before dawn Sunday, killing four American service members before escaping, according to Afghan and international officials. It was the third attack by Afghan forces or insurgents disguised in military uniforms against international forces in as many days, killing eight troops in all."

    Ex-Reagan official: 'If you think your partner may kill you, there's something wrong' Scores of U.S. troops have been killed by supposed allies within the Afghan military and police forces. These green-on-blue murders prompted the Pentagon to suspend joint patrols. Retired U.S. Marine Bing West, an author and former assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs in the Reagan administration, has been embedded with U.S. troops in Afghanistan on many occasions and just returned from going on a series of patrols. He told WNDs Greg Corombos there really isnt more that can be done to screen the Afghans going...

    (CNSNews.com) - Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, says he's "mad as hell" about the increasing number of insider attacks, in which Afghan soldiers and police murder the Americans who are trying to train them. "You know, we're willing to sacrifice a lot for this campaign. But we're not willing to be murdered for it," Gen. Allen told CBS' "60 Minutes" in a segment that aired on Sunday. Gen. Allen told CBS Correspondent Lara Logan that the insider attacks will continue: "The enemy recognizes this is a vulnerability. You know, in Iraq, the signature weapon system that...

    This is unbelievable. The Obama Administration blamed the friendly fire attacks in Afghanistan on US troops. U.S. Army specialist Mabry Anders (L), who was killed in an attack by an Afghan army soldier in Afghanistan on August 27, 2012, is pictured with his mother Genevieve Woydziak (C) and his stepfather Troy Woydziak in this undated handout family photo obtained by Reuters September 26, 2012. The insider attack also took the life of another U.S. soldier, Sergeant Christopher Birdwell. (REUTERS/Anders Family) The New York Post reported, via Pat Dollard: Afghan security forces, our supposed allies, are slaughtering American troops. Thirty-three soldiers...

    WASHINGTON In December 2009, our commander in chief went to West Point and proclaimed that he would withdraw all U.S. forces from Afghanistan by 2014. Since then, he has proudly emphasized that "We are on a course to end this war responsibly." Now U.S. and NATO troops and loyal Afghan soldiers and police officers are reaping the bitter harvest of the seeds that Barack Obama planted with those words. Over the last 10 days, in five separate incidents, seven American military personnel were killed in what used to be called "green on blue attacks" where Afghan soldiers or...

    During campaign season Democratic politicians, including then Senator Obama, denounced US military efforts during the Bush years, yet now the same democratic politicians who denounced the policy are pressing for its continuation. Furthermore those politicians insist that the multicultural nation building would provide success but in fact the attacks seem to be increasing. Although the war in Afghanistan has gone on for ten years, two thirds of the causalities have occurred during President Obama's three years as Commander in Chief...
