U.S. General Murdered by Member of Afghan Security Forces

Army Major General Harold J. Greene was shot and killed yesterday in Afghanistan, “apparently . . . by a member of the security forces he was committed to training,” the Washington Post reports. (Hat tip to the Week.) Horrid. I tend to agree with Greene’s neighbor, Retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Nicholas Caramanica, who told the Post: “If we’re going to fight a war, fight to win, and get out.”
