.....The latest killing of a US soldier at the hands of an Afghan counterpart – this time of a US Special Operations
Forces soldier by a US-trained Afghan commando – raises anew concerns
about America’s ability to build a credible Afghan security force before
2014, when US combat forces are scheduled to leave the country....
....In this latest case, US forces shot and killed the Afghan commando
perpetrator. Another Afghan commando and an interpreter were killed in
the crossfire. The incident occurred in the violent Kandahar Province in southern Afghanistan....
....In total, so-called green-on-blue killings now account for 20 percent of the 84 NATO casualties in 2012...
