“We call on the Afghans who still stand with the stooge regime to turn to full-fledged cooperation with their Mujahid people like courageous persons in order to protect national interests and to complete independence of the country. Jihadic activities inside the circle of the State militias are the most effective stratagem. Its dimension will see further expansion, organization and efficiency if God willing.”
~ Taliban leader, Mullah Omar
Cpl. Gregory T. Buckley, killed in a green-on-blue crime.
Afghanistan has been a haven for green-on-blue murders (insider attacks) because of our policy of training Afghans without time for proper security screenings. The Taliban have even told us they are stepping up their infiltration of the Afghan security forces and we still keep training them.
That is the definition of madness.
Our most recent murder was of Major General Harold J. Greene, shot four times in the back by a coward turncoat Afghan. The military was given an impossible deadline to train Afghans to stand as the national army and police force before we leave the country for good.
Major Genera Harold J. Greene
The military is running 7,000 new recruits through each month – not enough time for adequate background checks. As a result, the 35,000 member security force is riddled with terrorists.
It gets worse.
The Pentagon has given the Afghan government the keys to all the prisons we set up and they have in turn released them all under a mass amnesty plan. They were Taliban, al Qaeda and other assorted terrorists.
It is even worse than that.
The Pentagon, in their great wisdom and under Obamalosophy, pays Taliban fighters to surrender and join the government. It’s part of a reintegration program.
It’s an honor system for terrorists.
These ex-Taliban, of whom many are not reformed, feed the Afghan security forces that U.S. troops are training.
U.S. military intelligence thinks that as much as 25% of Afghan security forces are Taliban or al Qaeda operatives or sympathizers.
And…AND…if that’s not enough, they have easy access to, not only our personnel, but our intelligence!
These are the people we are training and the people who will take over January 1, 2015, unless a miracle happens and Obama develops some military proficiency – not likely.
It’s very ironic. We tried to get Pakistan’s main spy agency to stop training, funding and arming Taliban, but we’re doing the same thing. It’s reminiscent of the Carter era when he trained and funded Osama bin Laden and the Mujahideen.
We are training Taliban to take over Afghanistan 13 years after we defeated them because of their brutality and the threat they posed to us. Afghanistan will be yet another terrorist state in the region and we helped make it happen!!!
This was the Democrats’ “Good War”.
The following includes facts from the Long War Journal.
In 2012, attacks by Afghan forces on Coalition forces surged; in 2012, they accounted for 15% of Coalition deaths. In 2011, green-on-blue attacks accounted for 6%; in 2010, 2%; in 2009, 2%; and in 2008, less than 1%, reports Long War Journal. It went down to 9.9% in 2013 and it now stands at 5.3%.
The surge began right after Barack Obama announced the planned date of withdrawal. Leftists will tell you it’s the failure of the mission in Afghanistan but wiser heads will tell you it’s the absolutely stupid way the war is being ended by the president who said his doctrine is “don’t do stupid Sh…stuff.”
In May 2012, ISAF commander General John Allen said that about half of the green-on-blue attacks have been carried out by Taliban infiltrators. In August, General Allen said that approximately 25% of the green-on-blue attacks were due to Taliban infiltration and/or coercion of Afghan forces, according to The New York Times. The Taliban routinely take credit for the attacks.
The Taliban also have claimed to have stepped up efforts at infiltrating the Afghan National Security Forces since the announcement, reports Long War Journal.
On Oct. 24, 2012, Taliban emir Mullah Omar released an Eid al-Adha message that urged followers to “[i]increase Increase your efforts to expand the area of infiltration in the ranks of the enemy and to bring about better order and array in the work.” The statement continued: “We call on the Afghans who still stand with the stooge regime to turn to full-fledged cooperation with their Mujahid people like courageous persons in order to protect national interests and to complete independence of the country. Jihadic activities inside the circle of the State militias are the most effective stratagem. Its dimension will see further expansion, organization and efficiency if God willing.”
They told us they were doing it!!! They called us stooges but that doesn’t stop us!
Coalition troops have also been murdered in green-on-blue crimes.
Australian troops Lance Corporal Andrew Jones, Captain Bryce Duffy, Corporal Ashley Birt and Lance Corporal Luke Gavin were all killed in green-on-blue attacks in 2011.
