An Afghan killed a US Major General. The rank of the guy killed makes this news , but it is not new news to anyone paying attention.
The incident happened at Camp Qargha where Afghan military officers were being trained when a gunman wearing an Afghan army uniform turned his weapon against Americans and other Afghans, ABC News has learned.
A U.S. official described the shooting victim as a two star major general, the highest ranking official to be killed in the Afghanistan war
Green on Blue incidents have been happening at an awful rate for years. We never really had "good relations" with the people there, simply isolated pockets where some of our folks did a good job with some of theirs. We have never trusted them and they certainly have never trusted us.
The Afghans are nothing if not pragmatic and they have always been more willing to form temporary alliances than lasting alliances. They took our money and support and filled bank accounts in Dubai. When our fearlessful leader announced the faux surge with built in expiration date, he sealed the fate of those who had to wait out and manage our retreat. This is the reward you reap for weakness, when led by a Campaigner in Chief rather than a Commander in Chief.
