Our ally Afghanistan kills U.S. soldiers

An Afghan policeman shot and killed two American soldiers Monday in northern Afghanistan, the province's deputy governor said, and protests flared for a fourth straight day in several Afghan cities and towns over an American pastor's burning of the Koran.

The slain Americans were military trainers working in Faryab province, a once-calm area where insurgents have gained a greater foothold over the last year.

Our children are dying for people who kill us when our backs are turned - - in this case, incited by the Afghan president we fight to keep in power.
