More Green on Blue Murder as Afghan SF Soldier kills American Counterpart

From the Chicago Tribune:

...NATO's top general in the country, U.S. Marine General John Allen, and Afghan Defence Minister General Abdul Rahim Wardak just this month signed an agreement for Afghan special troops to spearhead controversial night raids on Afghan homes, which are seen as one of the most potent anti-insurgent tactics.

Qari Yousef Ahmadi, a spokesman for the Afghan Taliban, claimed responsibility for the attack in a phone text message sent to journalists, saying the Afghan soldier was "an insurgent infiltrator called Zakerullah."...

US Soldiers immediately returned fire and killed the attacker and another Afghan SF soldier.

And there was another Green on Blue incident at about the same time, but this event was with police forces.

"Two Afghan policemen opened fire on US soldiers in a military post in Zherai district of Kandahar province late Wednesday," the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) press office in southern Afghanistan told AFP.

 

Both Afghans were killed in return fire, while there were no ISAF casualties, a spokesman said.

So what is the Green on Blue attack total so far this year...?  18?  20?
