While Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey is busy, busy, busy ensuring that jihad, the enemy threat doctrine, as elucidated by Maj. Stephen Coughlin (USAR) among others, does not blow Islamispeace's reputation by entering the pure (ignorant) minds of our senior staff officers, that which Dempsey unconscionably calls "additional risk" marches on.

Never mind that a working knowledge of jihad, which is what Coughlin expertly imparts, would blow COIN sky high, making possible the strategy review necessary to save these American and NATO lives from Dempsey's "additional risk."

From the AP:

KABUL, Afghanistan — An Afghan soldier fatally shot an American service member and a local interpreter in southern Afghanistan, officials said Thursday, the latest in a string of attacks against U.S. and other foreign forces by their Afghan partners.

In the east, meanwhile, three U.S. service members were killed in a bomb attack, according to NATO and a U.S. official. The official confirmed the nationalities on condition of anonymity because the information had not yet been publicly released. Further details were not immediately available.

In the insider attack in southern Kandahar province, an Afghan soldier opened fire with a machine gun from atop a building, killing a U.S. soldier and an Afghan interpreter and wounding three other coalition service members before he was gunned down, a senior U.S. defense official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release details.

The U.S. military officially confirmed only that a man wearing an Afghan army uniform turned his gun on coalition service members late Wednesday, killing one. The incident was under investigation, the military said. ....

The U.S. military chooses its language carefully in describing insider shootings because of the possibility that assailants may be insurgents disguised in Afghan army uniforms and not actual members of the Afghan security forces. Such uniforms are easily available in markets in Afghanistan, and the Taliban have used them to mount previous attacks on international or Afghan military installations.

The US military choose its language carefully, all right, Anything to avoid talking about the Islamic imperative of jihad, which makes murder of the infidel possible, and strategic alliance with the infidel unworkable and self-defeating.

The (unofficial) grim toll climbs to 67 since November 2009.
