U.S. General Killed in Afghanistan Identified as Major General Harold Greene
The U.S. General killed in the August 5 green-on-blue attack at Camp Qargha, Afghanistan, has been identified as Major General Harold Greene.
Breitbart News reported that the attack took place around noon with, at that time, approximately 15 wounded and one U.S. officer killed.
The Associated Press reports that General Greene was the officer who lost his life.
Green's Army bio indicates he was "the Deputy for Military Acquisition and System Management, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology)."
Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said of the approximately 15 shot during the Camp Qargha attack, some were "seriously wounded" and some received "only minor injuries." He said the Pentagon "believes" the gunman "was an Afghan soldier." He said there are "no indications that he was anything other than a member of the Afghan National Security forces."
