    Default 6 US Harrier fighter jets were destroyed and Attackers were wearing US ARMY UNIFORMS

    The persistent problem of rogue Afghan soldiers and police turning their guns on U.S. and allied troops is a "very serious threat" to the war effort, which is predicated on placing security responsibility in Afghan hands, the U.S. military's top officer said Sunday.

    In unusually blunt remarks to the Pentagon's own news service, the American Forces Press Service, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey said the Afghan government needs to take the problem as seriously as do U.S. commanders and officials.

    "We're all seized with (the) problem," Dempsey was quoted as saying. "You can't whitewash it. We can't convince ourselves that we just have to work harder to get through it. Something has to change."

    Dempsey and other U.S. officials have remarked extensively in recent weeks on the need to improve the screening of Afghan recruits and to take other precautionary measures in the face of a series of attacks that so far this year have killed at least 51 allied troops, mostly of them Americans.

    "But we've got to make sure our Afghan counterparts are as seized about it as we are," Dempsey said. "We have to get on top of this. It is a very serious threat to the campaign."

    Dempsey commented after attending a meeting in Romania of NATO military representatives. He said they discussed the situation in Afghanistan, including plans for the remaining two years of the campaign and the insider attack problem.

    In the latest instances of such attacks, two British soldiers were killed by an Afghan policeman in the southern province of Helmand on Saturday and four American troops were killed in a similar attack Sunday in Zabul province.

    Dempsey said an assault on Camp Bastion, a British air base in Helmand province, on Friday in which two U.S. Marines were killed and six U.S. Harrier fighter jets were destroyed, should not be categorized as an insider attack even though the attackers were wearing U.S. Army uniforms.

    He said an initial review of the matter had determined that the attackers had no inside assistance at Bastion. Other officials said the attack was clearly a well-planned, well-rehearsed assault carried out by Taliban fighters.

    It was not immediately clear how the attackers got the U.S. uniforms or how they managed to do such extensive damage at Bastion

    I love how the US brass is so afraid to offend Hamid "I'll have a head on my body for about 3 seconds after the Americans leave" Karzai by coming down tough on the ANA and ANP, who are so rife with their Taliban brothers.

    It's been denial after denail from the White House and Pentagon. What they should be doing is riling up American anger towards a corrupt and hopeless Afghan government that is STEALING taxpayer dollars. Time to cut off all foreign aid to Assramistan and tell Karzai to go fuck himself and lick goat asses with his Taliban buddies.

    I cant believe or understand how this news just vanished. Whats that cost, how much a harrier? 30 million? I dunno but a lot.

    This is a smart enemy, it continues to adapt its tactics. I bet there are converted former western nation soldiers in there somewhere working all this out. Its too clever and too easy for the average rag head.
