“We've put a high priority on is to conduct a detailed analysis of every [green-on-blue] attack and the background of the shooter. One of the problems that we have is, most of the shooters are killed in the attacks or escape -- over half. But that doesn't stop you still digging into their background using multiple means and actually interviewing the ones that we detain. The way I describe it is a bit like watching for suicide.”

— Australian Army Brigadier General Roger Noble, deputy chief of staff for operations for the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan, during a teleconference with Pentagon reporters Wednesday.
