US Major General Harold Greene was slain today in a green-on-blue attack at an Afghan training academy near Kabul. He is the highest ranked US soldier slain so far in the 13-year occupation. Maj. Gen. Greene was shot at close range by an Afghan soldier, who also shot a large number of others, including a German Brigadier General. 15 overall NATO soldiers were reported wounded, mostly Americans.
So far Maj. Gen. Greene is the only confirmed fatality, though some reports have suggested others may have died in the incident. There was no indication of why the gunmen attacked them, though he has been confirmed to be a “vetted” Afghan soldier, and he was slain in the incident.
