The Afghan soldier went jihad, giving our soldiers a tutorial in Islam that Obama, the Department of Defense and the Pentagon refuse to give.
This is a horror -- we are training, arming, funding and dying for Islamic jihad.
pilot opened fire at Kabul airport Wednesday, Afghan and coalition officials said.
The Taliban immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, contending that the gunman, who was killed in the firefight, was impersonating an officer.
But a Defense Ministry spokesman said the shooter was a 20-year military veteran who "opened fire on foreigners after an argument."
It was the seventh time this year that Afghan security forces, or insurgents posing as them, have killed coalition soldiers.
The shooting occurred at a facility used by the Afghan Air Force, and the cause of the argument was unclear.
The gunman was identified as Ahmad Gul by another Afghan pilot, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Gul's brother, Dr. Mohammad Hassan Sahibi, told a local television station that his sibling had financial troubles and had no links to any terrorist organizations.
"He was 48 years old," Sahibi said. "He served his country for years. He loved his people and his country."
Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the attack and ordered an investigation.
Col. Bahader, who only goes by one name, told the Associated Press the shooting took place in an operation room.
"Suddenly, in the middle of the meeting, shooting started," Bahader said. "After the shooting started, we saw a number of Afghan army officers and soldiers running out of the building. Some were even throwing themselves out of the windows to get away."
