It is obvious that the Afghani security forces cannot be trusted to keep foreigners and its own people safe from the Taliban and associated terrorists in the region.
Here are a few of the recent attacks carried out by traitorous security force individuals, as well as attacks committed because of lax security.
- In January, Taliban attack on a popular Kabul restaurant with suicide bombers and gunmen killed more than a dozen people
- In March, gunmen slipped past security at an upscale hotel in the Afghan capital and killed several diners in its restaurant.
- This month, an Afghan police officer shot two Associated Press staff working in the eastern province of Khost, killing one, and wounding the other.
