Afghan Policeman Kills NATO Soldier in Latest ‘Green-on-Blue’ Attack

The Obama Administration’s efforts to phase out the term “green-on-blue” to refer to Afghan security forces attacking and killing NATO troops comes at an awkward time, as awareness of the problem is soaring, and the number of attacks is hitting record highs.

Once a comparatively rare occurrence, the “green-on-blue” attack today was the ninth such shooting in the past 11 days, and killed another NATO soldier, bringing the toll for the year to 40 slain. It comes as Gen. Martin Dempsey has arrived in the country to press for new efforts to reduce such attacks.
