In an act of extreme cowardice and betrayal, a U.S.-trained Afghan police officer opened fire and killed at least three members of the American Special Forces after being invited to a dinner under the pretext of discussing security.
According to reports, details of the incident remain foggy. The premeditated murder occurred in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan at a checkpoint location. The gunman ran from the scene after the shooting and disappeared into the surrounding landscape. The names of those killed will not be released until their respective family members are notified.
This continues to beg the question of why our American forces are forced to maintain a presence in the area in a clearly dangerous environment where even our so-called allies are blood thirsty.
