Were Latest ‘Green-on-Blue’ Deaths in Afghanistan Preventable?

According to an Associated Press report today, two Americans died when an Afghan National Army soldier turned his weapon on coalition troops in the western part of the country. Had that Afghan soldier been properly vetted before being allowed to serve alongside U.S. forces in Afghanistan, I contend, those two Americans might still be alive today. I back up that contention in my just-released nonfiction book, THE CLAPPER MEMO, the product of an exhaustive four-year investigation.

In THE CLAPPER MEMO, I back up my contention, in part, by connecting the dots between three DoD memos– including one signed by James R. Clapper before he assumed the role as the nation’s top intelligence official — and the so-called “Green-on-Blue” or “Insider” attacks in Afghanistan. More details in these posts.

For the complete story, order a copy of THE CLAPPER MEMO in paperback or ebook versions from Amazon.

  1. Of course the deaths were preventable. By not being in a country we had no business being there in the first place we would have “prevented” countless deaths. You can’t die there if you aren’t there. Just like the ever fleeting pursuit for a way to defeat IED’s. I have a guaranteed system to combat them. It’s called the NBT system: The “Not Being There” system. Works flawlessly and provides a 100% success rate. So when can I collect my fat Pentagon check for this brain storm?
