Despite what Leon Panetta said on Wednesday, CNN wants to continue blaming US troops for those dozens of green-on-blue attacks this year, so they went trolling for an opinion, not given by a US leader to support their hateful supposition;
NATO says the majority of attacks by Afghan security forces against coalition troops are driven primarily by personal grievances rather than an infiltration by insurgents.
“Some 10% we know are related to the insurgency,” Brig. Gen. Gunter Katz, a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, said late Friday.
Yes, I know, as recently as April, US leaders were using that excuse, too, but for some reason, Panetta’s statement on Wednesday which finally admitted that it might be a Taliban strategy, well, that didn’t settle it for CNN.
SGT Duke, who sent us the link to the CNN article says;
CNN is full of it. The attacks by Afghan troops on our soldiers are NOT based on personal grievances. Look on youtube… look at the Taliban celebrating when one of their buddies return from carrying out a mission to infiltrate the Afghan troops and kill NATO soldiers. These attacks are absolutely calculated and should be considered terrorist/enemy operations. It is a damn shame that people can’t report the truth for fear of losing relations with a country that American taxpayers pump money into for no reason. We are basically paying them to kill us at this point.
