    Afghanistan NATO officers shot dead in Kabul ministry.

    The International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) said an "individual" had turned his gun on the officers. Afghan security officials said those killed were an American Colonel and Major. Local media reports suggest the incident followed a "verbal clash". The incident comes amid five days of deadly protests over the burning of copies of the Koran by US soldiers.

    The interior ministry was put in lock-down after the shootings, officials said. "An individual turned his weapon against International Security Assistance Force service members in Kabul city today," an Isaf statement said. The BBC's Orla Guerin in Kabul says reports indicate the gunman was not a Westerner. She says eight shots were reported inside the building, which should be one of the safest in the capital, and that any Afghan who carried out the attack would have to have had the highest clearance.

    Local media reports said the gunman was an Afghan policeman but this has not been confirmed.

    Isaf spokesman Brig Gen Carsten Jacobson told the BBC that NATO could not yet confirm the identity of those killed.

    Allen West must be having conniptions right now. obama has lost whatever military vote he thought he would get. How many more will be sacrificed before there is a revolt in the military? I'd love to see it. The military in Afghanistan deciding to pull out all the stops in defending themselves and obama sucking his thumb trying to decide if he should send in troops to fight them.

    I used to fight it. Not sure why, but its evident and could not be any clearer now. It's time to come home.

    We can't change thousands of years of stupidity with our blood or money.

    BRING THEM HOME

    Richard A. Clarke - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Richard Alan Clarke[1] (born October 27, 1950) was a U.S. government employee for 30 years, 1973–2003. He worked for the State Department during the presidency of Ronald Reagan.[2] In 1992, President George H.W. Bush appointed him to chair the Counter-terrorism Security Group and to a seat on the United States National Security Council. President Bill Clinton retained Clarke and in 1998 promoted him to be the national coordinator for security, infrastructure protection, and counterterrorism, the chief counterterrorism adviser on the National Security Council. Under President George W. Bush, Clarke initially continued in the same position, but the position was no longer given cabinet-level access. He later became the special adviser to the president on cybersecurity, before leaving the Bush administration in 2003.

    Clarke came to widespread public attention for his role as counterterrorism czar in the Clinton and Bush administrations in March 2004, when he appeared on the 60 Minutes television news magazine, released his memoir about his service in government, Against All Enemies, and testified before the 9/11 Commission. In all three instances, Clarke was sharply critical of the Bush administration's attitude toward counterterrorism before the 9/11 terrorist attacks and of the decision to go to war with Iraq. Following Clarke's strong criticisms of the Bush administration, Bush administration officials and other Republicans attempted to discredit him or rebut his criticisms, making Clarke a controversial figure.
