This is unbelievable.
Don’t look now but the Obama Administration blamed the numerous “friendly fire” attacks in Afghanistan this year on US troops.

If the US troops were just more respectful the Afghans would not be killing them.
The New York Post reported, via Pat Dollard:

Afghan security forces, our supposed allies, are slaughtering American troops. Thirty-three soldiers have been killed by “green on blue” attacks this year alone. The situation is so bad that the training of Afghan forces has been temporarily suspended.

How has the Pentagon responded?

By blaming our troops.

Top officials believe culturally offensive behavior is the motivation behind the killings, so it’s stepped up Islamic sensitivity training for our troops.

If you don’t want to be shot in the back by your Afghan training partners, the Pentagon advises, don’t offend their religious sensibilities. Don’t kick your feet up on a table, for instance, and never ask to see a picture of their wives and kids. “There’s a percentage [of attacks] which are cultural affronts,” Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said in a recent interview. Dempsey echoes the concerns of Gen. Sher Mohammad Karimi, the Afghan National Army’s chief of staff, who earlier this month argued both sides need to do more to “teach” foreign troops Islamic traditions and values to reduce the chance of violent reactions to cultural slights. “It is our duty to teach this to them. Our indifference about these issues causes the incident,” he said.

What an ignorant and insensitive statement.
Tell this to the parents of one of our brave heroes.

UPDATE: This Ain’t Hell has details from his Afghan contacts on today’s attack.

 

Did Obama Help ISIS?

  1. “If you don’t want to be shot in the back by your Afghan training partners, the Pentagon advises, don’t offend their religious sensibilities. Don’t kick your feet up on a table, for instance, and never ask to see a picture of their wives and kids.” Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said in a recent interview.

    Who the hell is this Benedict Arnold?

  2. This is so stupid by our so-called leaders is offends every free thinking person. How bout we just pack up and let these neanderthals handle their own stuff with a final good bye note telling them if we every have to come back this place, with all of it’s Islamic cry babies, it will be wiped out. Scorched earth. No rules of engagement other than kill everyone and thing. The funds stop today also.

    Bring the troops home; now.

  3. Satan is protecting his own. Most Americans don’t believe there is true evil in the world. I hope they wake up soon.

  4. The Afghans should be taught that US and allied troops have cultural sensitivities to the murder of our people.

  5. Tell that camel humping turdburglar raghead to F.O.
    We train your @ss don’t whine about being offended. We are offended that you are constantly offended…how about we shoot you all in the back for fun?

  6. So depressing. Yes. these are insults in Islam . . . especially showing the soles of shoes. They most definitely do not want other men looking at pics of their wives, but they do NOT warrant being shot in the back. That is due to the fact that we are infidels. We should just get out of there. Let them rot.

  7. Of course he’s blaming US troops – Obama hates America. Is that a secret to some people?

  8. Sure does put that infamous picture of our Muslim-In-Chief’s feet on the historic desk in the Oval Office in a whole new light, doesn’t it?

  9. Go here for a transcript of Panetta and Dempsey’s remarks http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/news/2012/09/mil-120927-dod02.htm Dempsey also intervened on the video that Obama tried to convince us was the reason for the recent Middle East attacks on our embassies, one of which resulted in Ambassador Stevens’ murder. I am not a fan of Panetta or Dempsey but judge for yourself. They are typical of the Obama Administration.

  10. 100% of the shots to the backs of those who have risked their lives for so-called partners would be cultural affronts, to put it mildly.

  11. That’s right …It’s the duty of every commander to teach Imam Obama’s troops how to correctly pray toward Mecca 5 times a day…to close down those offensive christian chaplains….to replace those OFFENSIVE bugle noises with the Adhan call to prayer…to forbid those offensive bibles and teach the Koran to enlisted men. Female troops properly covered in Burkas. No more offensive foods. Strict diets of halal vegetables. THEN our enemy friends won’t have to kill so many of our rude insulting bigoted people.

  12. Think it’s time to say goodbye, U.S. military. This could not be more offensive. We’re worried about their “traditions”? Which ones: beheadings, stonings, female genital mutilation, wiping barehanded, srapping bombs on women and children? Leave Afghanistan in the 7th century and make it clear… you screw with us and you are toast.

  13. Gen Martin Dempsey has NO business being in charge of America’s military. Period.

  14. Gen Martin Dempsey????

    How abou the anti American President Obama.

    And the leftists who always figure that if someone attacks the US or kills US citizens that it MUST be because WE DID SOMETHING WRONG.

  15. Obama should practice what he preaches or it could happen to him OMG 2012 . I can see November& January from my house!

  16. As I kick my feet up on the table I promise not to ask to see pictures of Burka’s with two eyes.

  17. So He could not say for over a week about Ambassador Stevens and who did what to him but within a day or two he KNOWS the answer here……………..
