Laura Ingraham hosted Dan Anders, father of Specialist Mabry Anders who was killed in an inside attack in Afghanistan.
One in five casualties in Afghanistan are inside jobs.
Anders got a standard form letter from the White House about his son's death from the White House. He said the man who shot his son wasn't well vetted and that the incidents are glossed over by the administration. Mabry told his father that he wasn't sleeping well due to the way things were going in Afghanistan. Mabry was in a convoy that was hit by fire. He was told the other Afghans threw down their arms and ran away and wasn't fired on due to rules of engagement. The killer was finally taken out after permission was asked. He found out by cellphone from his ex-wife who was in the Army and he was a Marine. Mabry was his only child, born on his birthday. He had a great sense of humor, was upbeat and was training to be a helicopter pilot. He was going to go to college once he got out of the service.
Mabry said that very few of the Afghans at the base were friendly as they feared the reprisals from the Taliban. He said there have been cover-ups of these events and that the US has to apologize and make reparations when the Afghans are killed.
