Interpreter shoots dead two U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan

"Interpreter shoots dead two US soldiers in Afghanistan," from the BBC, January 30 (thanks to Mackie):
Two US soldiers who died in eastern Afghanistan on Friday were shot dead by an interpreter, it has emerged.
A Nato official said the translator gunned down the US soldiers before other soldiers shot him dead at an outpost in Wardak province.
A US military official told Reuters news agency the attacker seemed to be a "disgruntled employee", not a militant....

I once had a job in which I was disgruntled over pay and treatment. Oddly enough, I never opened fire.
