An Afghan policewoman shot dead on Monday a U.S. forces member in the chief of police's compound in Kabul, police and NATO said, another "insider attack" that is bound to raise troubling questions about the direction of an unpopular war.

It appeared to be the first time that a woman member of Afghanistan's security forces shot a member of the Western coalition force supporting and training Afghanistan's military and police.

"A U.S. police adviser was killed in an attack by an Afghan policewoman," a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said.

According to the source, the policewoman approached the American adviser as he was walking in the heavily guarded police chief's compound in a bustling area of the capital. She then drew a pistol and shot him once, a senior police official told Reuters.

In the article it states that during questioning, she started to cry and say "What have I done"....
Good question...what HAVE you done and why?
One shot is all it took.

There have been other insider incidents where trust has been undermined between the coalition and Afghan forces.

Insider attacks now account for one in every five combat deaths suffered by NATO-led forces in Afghanistan, and 16 percent of all U.S. combat casualties, according to 2012 data

Time to get out of there and bring our men home.

We can't police the's not our place.

We think they are the same as us but they are not. Some tribal women in Afghanastan throw themselves into a fire after their husband has died. It may be something along the lines of her honor being broken somehow, so she shot him. They really are that crazy. Or she just shot another infidel. What we all should understand as westeners is what the word infidel means to these people. They think we are all as low as dogs and soulless to boot. You cannot get through that kind of bigotry with reason.

Perhaps we'll get the story behind this after she's been water boarded and interrogated.

Women will be at their most foolish if they ever support the Taliban. To these animals, women are chattels to be used and discarded whenever a radical fundamentalis muslim feels like it. Women are lower than dogs in the Taliban world.

Fool that the female shooter had been, she does serve a larger purpose - to inflame the Nato troops to hate ALL afghan women and treat them disrespectfully and even violently, so that the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan can throw the crocodile tear sympathy card to swing world opinion to the 'evil' that NATO forces had done.

Thus, Nato forces must not fall into that trap.

In anycase, it is high time to pull out NATO from these arab lands. They had only proven themselves happy to live in delusion, hatred for each other, endless slaughtering of each other, pridefull, ego-filled, Koran twisted maniacs and quick to lay blame on the West for their own failings with lies and unsubstantiated allegations.

Enough is enough. The arabs had made their choice despite the rest of the world's best efforts. Better the west look towards building, progress and elevating our own societies. Arabs who join our nations must either conform to our way of life, or free to take the first flight back.

Will the arabs ever wake up? For their next generations' sake, I hope so, otherwise needless millions there will experience pain and suffering just like what Syria is going through now, and Egypt on the way too.

We will offer collective world united human aid where we can, but no more interventions. Despised, unappreciated and taken for granted had the west been held by the arabs, even after trillions and volumetric western sons and blood had been poured to help them. It's..... time to walk away.....

when a war last longer than the Vietnam War, it's time to pull out.
