Policeman who killed British troops ‘is back with Taliban’

By Jon Boone and Matthew Weaver

November 6, 2009

The gunman who killed five British soldiers in an attack in Afghanistan’s Helmand province was today back with Taliban fighters who greeted him with flowers, sources close to the Afghan security forces said.

The killer – identified only as a policeman called Gulbadin – was back under Taliban protection, the source said.

British and Afghan commanders were undertaking an urgent investigation into the circumstances of the attack…

Military officials said the men were shot as they drank tea at a military compound in the village of Shin Kalay.

The deaths prompted deep soul-searching in Whitehall because Gordon Brown had put British army training of the expanding Afghan security force at the heart of his exit strategy from the country.

Gulbadin joined the Afghan police force three years ago, undergoing his initial police training in the city of Kandahar.

He was a member of the Alozai tribe in an area in which the Noorzai tribe dominates the police.

Speaking after the killings, tribal elders said they were aware Gulbadin had Taliban links

How do the authorities in Afghanistan ever expect to win this war if they are going to pay, uniform and train their own enemies?

Oh, wait a minute….

      They shot one of our U.S. soldiers during their holiday for drinking water.

      This is part of Obama’s Barak Baraki’s village Pilot program. He is following the book Three Cups of Tea By Greg Mortenson, that John Kerry referred to when he said the administration is already been implementing the stragedy they will take.

      Here is Obama and Kerry’s speeches. They are sickening. Obama even directly stole one of John McCain’s quotes complimenting our military, from a Republican primary debate.

      Obama and Kerry are sick dogs. They shouldn’t even be allowed to have jobs in social services of some federal program. Obama would tell women they must stay with their husbands that beat them. John Kerry would be saying do you get up and get iced tea when your husband asks for it.
