Renegade Afghan soldier kills U.S. civilians

Either this guy just snapped or He was with the Taliban the whole time !

Time to rethink how things are done in Afghanistan ?

(Reuters) - Two U.S. civilians and an Afghan soldier were killed on Tuesday in a shooting by another Afghan soldier at a weapons training area in the north of the country, the U.S. military said.

Afghan and NATO forces were still investigating the circumstances around the incident, which also resulted in the death of the suspected shooter and the wounding of a foreign service member and an Afghan soldier, it said in a statement.

Earlier, provincial sources said a renegade Afghan, serving with government security forces, had killed two members of the NATO-led force.

The incident occurred at a military training camp near to the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, the U.S. military said, adding the suspect was "thought to be an Afghan army trainer."

"A joint ... investigation is under way to determine the circumstances surrounding the shooting by an Afghan army soldier that led to the death and injury of several individuals," it said in a statement.
