Afghan Policeman Kills U.S. Service Member on Joint Patrol
By Martha Raddatz | ABC New
A U.S. service member was killed in southern Afghanistan today on a patrol with Afghan securityforces when one of the Afghans turned his weapon on the Americans, the latest in a rash of what the ISAF is now calling "insider" attacks on American troops. The incident comes justdays after the U.S. military told troops to be constantly armed and ready for attack, both inside and outside their bases. Twenty U.S. troops and one aid worker have been killed inTaliban attacks in the past two weeks, 10 of them shot to death in cold blood by rogue Afghan soldiers or policemen. The number of "green on blue" attacks this year already exceeds the totalfor last year. Since the beginning of 2012, there have been 32 attacks resulting in 40 deaths, far more than last year's 21 total attacks. A senior U.S. military officer atInternational Security Assistance Force headquarters in Kabul told ABC's Martha Raddatz forces throughout Afghanistan are now required to carry a loaded magazine in their personal weapon."Before, we usually did that only when we went out the gate," the official told Raddatz. "[Now] it applies everywhere. I am sitting in my office with a mag in my pistol. A round is notchambered, but I am ready to go at a moment's notice."
Everyone got surprised because an Afghan killed a US solder, but the truth is that people is dying every day not just the USsoldiers but also the Afghan solder… the amount of death during this year has increased since the beginning of 2012. This is a conflict that US has being having long time ago, peopleare dying but everyone got surprised because just one American soldier was killed! People die every day in those conflict innocent people that had nothing to do the conflict with USA
