A long-serving member of Afghanistan’s border police force turned his gun on NATO trainers this morning, killing six of them. The incident took place in Nangahar Province, along the border with Pakistan.
NATO says an investigation is underway and declined to release the nationalities of the slain. Afghan officials said, however, that they believed all six of them were Americans, and indeed the vast majority of the trainers in the area are Americans.
The incident is just the latest in a growing number of deadly attacks by seemingly loyal Afghan security forces against the NATO occupation forces. A senior police official said of the attack, “I think the Taliban has worked on him.”
The killings also add to the already record November toll, and raise yet more questions about the claims that the situation in Afghanistan is turning in favor of the NATO war effort. Some nine years into the occupation, it seems NATO still can’t guarantee the loyalty of its recruits into the Afghan security forces, let alone reduce the levels of violence.

Where is the surprise in this? And, of course, the usual "The Taliban made him do it" is spewed as cover. Do we know for a fact that this guy didn't have family or friends slain in one of those oh-so-convenient drone attacks who hadn't done a damn thing to deserve their fate? Who'll know? Who'll care to even find out?
didn't know it was loaded, sorry.
All six were American according to NBC. Why is there no follow up when "NATO soldiers" are confirmed to be all American soldiers? Why let Obama hide US soldiers as Nato soldiers when 52 of the 56 soldiers killed this month in Afghanistan have been American.
I see you have changed the body of the report. Time to update the headline.
When the invaders and occupiers are armed with the most destructive weaponry in history this is one of the more efficient methods for resistance forces to liberate their homelands.
There is no surprise if the afghans have the possibility to kill americans why not? Every thing is fair in killings and love.
Americans have become mad in their strategedy to prove on the gun point that they have done rightly 9/11 and there after to ocuppy all the natural resources on gun point. Afghans are nationalists and don,t dare death as they are rightly fighting the infidels and war criminals.
Afghnas have destroyed one super power and wil follow the second one.
I pray to americans live and let the others to live. You have better resources don,t steel every thing from others. There is enough wealth in america and can have best standard of life don,t destroy it with wars.
America now has become a begger and looking on the other states for help. Germans will never help you due to your past only superficially. You kill others and ask why you hate america
