CNN: Afghan security trainees are sometimes turning on American soldiers

CNN reported Sunday night the incidents of Afghan soldiers being trained by US security forces for internal police work suddenly turning on their American trainers.  In some cases, perpetrators have complained about insults to Allah by Americans, both soldiers and by Americans at home.

The latest story was not on CNN yet, but an older UKr story (from July) is here.

CNN reported that an Afghan trainee shot two or more servicemen suddenly, out of religious zealotry, when the soldiers had put their weapons down for regular cleaning.  

The recent incident about the “film”, seems deliberately exaggerated by Al Qaeda, is complicating peacekeeping in Afghanistan, and the trend of demands that the US government censor its citizens’ speech seems to continue.
