US Military Issues Insider Attack Guide

As if this recently common occurrence of "insider attacks" could get any more bizarre and scary, the US military has begun issuing 'Insider Attack' pocket reference guides to troops.

According to the website Truth-Out, the booklet advises troops to 'respect Islam, elders, children and women' in order to stave off insider attacks. The guide also says that predeployment training should include scenarios of "green on blue" attacks for lower-level commanders "to prevent complacency and conduct risk assessments with" insider attacks in mind.

At this point, I have to wonder out loud: is everyone willfully ignoring the elephant on the couch? Are we all now complicit in this untruth?
