Losing Afghanistan: Green-on-Blue Murders Resume

KABUL, Afghanistan – An Afghan soldier turned his gun on American troops at a checkpoint in the country’s east, killing two Americans and at least two fellow members of Afghanistan’s army in a shooting that marked both the continuance of a disturbing trend of insider attacks and the 2,000th U.S. troop death in the long-running war, officials said Sunday. The string of insider attacks is one of the greatest threats to NATO’s mission in the country, endangering a partnership key to training up Afghan security forces and withdrawing international troops. . .

It seems both Romney and Obama are committed to the 2014 deadline to end the war. Can either of them explain what U.S. troops will do in the interim to not get killed by our allies? And if Afghanistan returns to its feral state as soon as we leave, what's the point right now of staying? - Greg Pollowitz
