(Newser) – A new insider attack in Afghanistan has left five people dead, two of them Americans, say officials. As US troops visited a police station in Wardak province, an Afghan officer reportedly opened fire. Two US troops and three Afghan police were killed in the ensuing skirmish, the AP reports. The clash occurred a day after the Afghan-set deadline for US special forces—which make up the majority of US troops in Wardak—to exit the province. Last month, 17 police officers were killed in a particularly deadly insider attack.

Why are we still there while karazi acting in such inflammatory remarks about us negotiating with the Taliban behind his back, he and his clans are using the US, he never trusted the non Moslems no matter how much we did and died, we should pull out now and let him suffer sooner than later..
