A troubling trend has emerged over the last few weeks in Afghanistan as our enemy adapts to the situation on the ground. In the month of August ‘green on blue’ attacks have spiked. For those who get their news from the mainstream media and haven’t heard about this; ‘green on blue’ attacks are attacks on coalition forces in Afghanistan by supposedly friendly Afghan security forces.
The mainstream media has all but ignored the war in Afghanistan since Barack Obama took office, but when they do bother to mention the spike in violence they talk about NATO casualties in order to downplay how many Americans are being killed in Afghanistan, but this is to be expected from the propaganda arm of the Obama regime.
You wouldn’t know it by listening to the mainstream media, but since the beginning of August ten of the NATO troops killed by people pretending to be working with the coalition have been Americans. In many cases these Americans were killed after training the Afghans and personally handing them the weapons used to kill them. This appears to be the biggest threat moving forward as we continue to train Afghans to take care of themselves after we leave the country in 2014 because there is no way to tell who is a legitimate friend and who is a member of the Taliban who infiltrated Afghan security forces with the sole intent of killing Americans.
