Igjen er amerikanske soldater drept av menn som bærer afghanske uniformer. Tre menn drepte to amerikanske soldater i sør torsdag, og to av dem bar uniformene til regjeringshæren.

De to i uniform ble drept av amerikanerne. Den tredje angriperen i sivil ble såret. Han viste seg å være lærer.

Om det er Taliban som kler seg ut eller om det er afghanske soldater som forråder og faller sine allierte i ryggen, vites ikke, og kan variere fra gang til gang. Sikkert er det at det undergraver tillit og amerikanernes engasjement.

Two U.S. troops were shot dead in southern Afghanistan when three assailants, two of whom were believed to be Afghan soldiers, turned their weapons against American troops on Thursday.

Afghan and U.S. military officials confirm to CBS News that the dead were U.S. troops, and that a third American servicemember was wounded in the attack. U.S. forces responded with gunfire and killed the two assailants in Afghan army attire, wounding a third Afghan shooter in civilian clothing. The wounded shooter was identified as a teacher and is in custody.

CBS News correspondent Mandy Clark reports the shooting occurred inside a joint Afghan-U.S. base in Kandahar province.

Thursday’s shooting is the latest case of Afghan policemen or soldiers — or militants disguised in their uniforms — killing NATO troops.
