Afghan officials: US-led forces killed 9 police

KABUL, Afghanistan - U.S.-led troops and Afghan forces killed nine Afghan police Sunday, calling in airstrikes and fighting on the ground for four hours after both sides mistook the other for militants, Afghan officials said.

In a separate incident, NATO said it accidentally killed at least four Afghan civilians Saturday night. A NATO soldier also was killed in the east.

As horrific as this incident is, it just further points up for us to truly examine our motivation and justification to continue these operations and the manner in which we conduct them.

Perhaps contractors could do a better job.

Let the respective countries contract directly with Kroll or Blackwater and get our military back to doing the jobs they are better at. IMHO>
