Three U.S. soldiers killed by uniformed Afghan in Helmand

KABUL | Fri Aug 10, 2012 3:04am EDT

(Reuters) - An Afghan wearing a uniform killed three U.S. soldiers in the southern province of Helmand, a spokeswoman for NATO-led forces in Afghanistan said on Friday.

"All we know is that they were killed by an Afghan in a uniform of some sort," the spokeswoman told Reuters, adding that it was too early to say if the shootings were by a rogue security force member or a Taliban infiltrator.

Afghan officials said the three men were all special forces members and were killed while attending a meeting in Sangin District late on Thursday.

1. Just A Little Longer....

We're getting close to winning this war, I can feel it.

Any day now, the Afghans are going to thank us for all we've done.

Maybe they'll even stop killing our soldiers.
