US Military Service Members Wounded In Insider Attack In Afghanistan

Last week, a Taliban infiltrator in the Afghan army shot two US soldiers dead before being killed.

In two separate incidents last week US service members in Afghanistan have been shot at by men dressed in Afghan army uniforms who were actually working for the Taliban.

The attack on the Gardez police base is the second one by the Taliban against a major government military installation since April, when a significant assault by militants on a military base left more than 130 soldiers dead, although the government initially said only a small number were killed.

No US military troops were killed in the attack, the official said.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the raid.

Trump has inherited America's longest conflict with no clear endpoint or a defined strategy for American success, though USA troop levels are far lower than they were under Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush. A second report done in 2011 by US military psychologists and behavioral scientists, who interviewed dozens of Afghan and American soldiers, discovered a dramatic cultural disconnect, with most Afghan soldiers feeling mistreated and insulted by their American allies.
