Afghan 'in uniform' kills three US soldiers

I'd be much more proud of the sacrafice made by these brave soldiers if they had lost their lives fighting to arrest the criminals in DC.

An Afghan wearing a uniform killed three US soldiers in the southern province of Helmand, a spokeswoman for Nato-led forces in Afghanistan said on Friday.

"All we know is that they were killed by an Afghan in a uniform of some sort," the spokeswoman told Reuters. They added that it was too early to say if the shootings were by a rogue security force member or a Taliban infiltrator.

Afghan officials said the three men were all special forces members and were killed while attending a meeting in Sangin district late on Thursday.

So-called green-on-blue shootings, in which Afghan police or soldiers turn their guns on their western mentors, have seriously eroded trust between the allies as Nato combat soldiers prepare to hand over to Afghan forces by 2014, after which most foreign forces will leave the country.
