A couple of weeks ago, I had posted a link to a statement by Michael Yon about the military covering up attacks by Afghani "allies" on American troops. Certainly these incidents don't get much air time in the U.S. media. In any event, here are a couple recent examples of these attacks.
For instance, this article from March 26 and 27, 2012 reports:
A mass suicide attack which was to target buses in the Afghan capital of Kabul has been foiled.
Intelligence officials seized 11 custom made 'suicide jackets' in the country's ministry of defence, less than a mile from the presidential palace.
Several Afghans, some reportedly soldiers in the Afghan National Army, were arrested and are now being questioned.
The discovery came on the same day two British servicemen were murdered by a renegade Afghan soldier who tried to trick his way into their fortified base.
As the Royal Military Police began investigating yesterday’s tragedy, it emerged that the gunman went berserk after a row broke out at the entrance to the British military compound in Lashkar Gah, Helmand.
Lieutenant Gul Nazir is said to have arrived in an army vehicle with several men pretending to be assigned to guard a delegation of VIPs visiting the base.
But when he was challenged by guards and told to wait outside, he opened fire with an M16 semi-automatic rifle, killing the two men and wounding a third.
A U.S. Nato service member was also killed by an Afghan policeman yesterday at a checkpoint in eastern Afghanistan.
Fifteen Nato troops have been killed by their Afghan allies in the first three months of 2012 – one in six of all coalition dead.
