Dhimmi in Chief. via Two Americans killed in Afghanistan amid protests – The Hill’s DEFCON Hill.
Two U.S. soldiers were killed in Afghanistan Thursday when a man wearing an Afghan uniform “turned his weapon” on the soldiers.
A U.S. official confirmed that the two International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) soldiers killed Thursday were American, as widespread protests continued in Afghanistan for the third consecutive day after Qurans were burned at a U.S. air base Tuesday.
NATO said in a statement Thursday that two ISAF soldiers were killed when “an individual wearing an Afghan National Army uniform turned his weapon against International Security Assistance Force service members in eastern Afghanistan.”
Thousands have protested at the U.S. Bagram Air Base and throughout the country after Qurans and other religious materials were found burned at the base. Seven Afghans were killed on Wednesday in the protests, and AFP reported at least three more were killed Thursday.
President Obama sent a letter to Afghan President Hamid Karzai this week apologizing for the burning, which he called an inadvertent error, and said that those responsible would be held accountable.
But the Taliban, which has begun negotiations with U.S. officials in peace talks, issued statements Thursday calling for violence, urging Afghan soldiers to turn “their guns on the foreign infidel invaders.”
The sheeple will allow Obama to be re-selected.
