While Team Obama fabricates and proliferates false stories about Mitt Romney causing deaths and not paying taxes, American soldiers continue to die in Afghanistan at the hands of thugs disguised in Afghan uniforms.
The most recent outrage occurred during a Ramadan dinner.
The story as reported, in part, at the reference:
CBS/AP) KABUL, Afghanistan - An Afghan police officer shot and killed three U.S. Marines after sharing a meal with them before dawn Friday and then fled into the desolate darkness of southern Afghanistan, the third attack on coalition forces by their Afghan counterparts in a week.
Thirty-one coalition service members have now died this year at the hands of Afghan forces or insurgents disguised in Afghan uniforms, according to NATO -- a dramatic rise from previous years.
U.S. officials told CBS News correspondent David Martin that the three slain troops were members of a Marine special operations force. Afghan sources in Helmand told CBS News Kabul bureau chief Fazul Rahim that they were part of a team overseeing the training and recruitment of Afghan local police. The sources said it was one of the police officers who opened fire on his mentors during dinner.
Friday's deadly shooting took place in the volatile Sangin district of Helmand province, said U.S. military spokeswoman Maj. Lori Hodge. Sangin was a Taliban stronghold for years and has one of the highest concentrations of improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, in the country.
The district chief, Mohammad Sharif, said the shooting happened at a police checkpoint after a joint meal and a security meeting. The meal took place before dawn because of Ramadan, the month in which Muslims abstain from food during daylight hours.”
Meanwhile, Barack Obama celebratesd Ramadan in the White House by hosting an Iftar dinner, after which he heaped praise upon the billion or so members of the “Religion of Peace.” See reference 2.
Where is Obama’s outrage at the unholy betrayal and slaughter of American soldiers by Religion of Peace soldiers?
