And so it continues:
The Afghan officer, who was a veteran military pilot, fired on the Nato Forces after an argument, which prompted a "gunfight". The shooting occurred in an operations room of the Afghan Air Corps at Kabul airport.
A Pentagon spokesman confirmed that the eight NATO service members and their civilian colleague were all americans.
Five Afghan soldiers were wounded, with at least one Afghan soldier shot - in the wrist - but most of the soldiers suffered broken bones and cuts, officials said.
It was the seventh time this year that members of the Afghan security forces, or insurgents impersonating them, have killed coalition soldiers or members of the Afghan security forces.
The attack comes less than a month after nine people died during protests in Kandahar and and an attack on the UN office in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, which resulted in the deaths of seven UN workers.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for Wednesday's attack. In a statement, Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said the gunman, who was killed during the shooting, was impersonating an army officer and that others at the facility helped him gain access.
War is hell.
