Afghan gunman had no criminal backgroundKABUL, Afghanistan -- The Afghan border policeman who killed six American service members during a training mission had been on the force for three years and had no criminal background, the Interior Ministry said Tuesday.
The gunman, who was killed in Monday's shootout, opened fire as the group was on its way to shooting practice in Nangarhar province near the Pakistan border, Interior Minister Bismullah Mohammadi told reporters.
How are our soldiers supposed to protect themselves when they can't trust the Afghani soldiers standing next to them? This is just a plain nightmare for our troops.
There're going to be lots of dead Afghani's -- or lots of dead Americans because of this. When our guys can't trust their allies, all hell's going to break loose.
