The hopes of the U.S. government on withdrawing troops from Kabul and handing over the state to Afghan security officials comes into question after the latest shooting of two senior U.S. officers in the heart of Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry. Security officials say that the attackers included an Afghan police intelligence official and a civilian.

NATO reacted by withdrawing all its advisers from Afghan ministries. Britain, Germany and Canada followed suit.


At least five NATO soldiers were killed by Afghan security forces since allegations were made about the burning of Koran in a NATO base. People conversant with Islamic fanaticism are of the opinion that ‘burning of Koran’ is a common allegation thrown at other communities by fanatics to start riots, and the practice is widespread and used for centuries to set off riots.

According to the Pentagon, at least 70 members of the NATO force have been killed in insider attacks over the last five years. The incidents increased in frequency with the U.S. sending larger contingents to Afghanistan for tackling Taliban forces.

The strategy of NATO in replacing large combat units with advisers and withdrawing tens of thousands of soldiers seems destined to fail with Afghan security forces making insider attacks on advisers.

The scheduled departure of NATO combat troops by the end of 2014 seems doubtful as the NATO relied on Afghan security forces to counter the Taliban after army withdrawal. However, the attitude of Afghan security forces and the large numbers of NATO officers killed in their hands raise severe doubts about handing over the country to them.

A senior Ministry of Defense official informed Reuters on Wednesday that if Afghanistan fails to check the infiltration of its security forces quickly, then the continued attacks on Western forces could well undermine ties of the present Afghan government with NATO.
