For years under Obama, our troops in Afghanistan were sacrificed to the politically correct refusal to state the truth about Islam. And now we have another senseless “insider attack,” once again because the Obama administration steadfastly refused for eight years to acknowledge the motive and ideology of jihadic doctrine. How are our soldiers supposed to distinguish the jihadists from people on our side? Trump must change this — but he hasn’t yet.
How many US soldiers have to die before the Pentagon changes its failed strategy? They aid, arm our enemies, then give deadly access to kill our troops. As Bev Perlson, leader of Gold Star moms, said about last week’s inside attacker, “Let them stay in their villages and keep them away from our Troops. ENOUGH! All it takes is ONE jihadi and now we have grieving families whose brave sons will never ever be home again. ENOUGH, something has to change! Let’s start with semantics. Stop with the “green on blue” verbiage, let’s call it what it is: an attack by an Afghan jihadi on our American sons!”

The incident marks the second insider attack in one week after an rogue Afghan soldier turned his gun on multiple U.S. soldiers June 10, killing 3 and wounding another. The Taliban later claimed the June 10 attack.
Insider attacks on Afghan and U.S. forces are a common method of attack in Afghanistan. “I think the signature attack that we’re beginning to see … is going to be the insider attack,” then-Commander of all U.S. forces in Afghanistan Gen. John Allen told “60 Minutes” in 2012.
