BRUSSELS (AP) - U.S. and NATO alliance officials say NATO defense leaders gathering in Brussels this week remain committed to the war in Afghanistan, but there are growing signs that the Afghan political and military hostilities against the coalition are starting to wear on the coalition.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Marine Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, will address their NATO allies this week. U.S. officials say they expect to reassure allies that military commanders are doing all they can to stem the tide of insider attacks, in which Afghan troops or insurgents dressed in their uniforms turn their guns on the coalition forces they are training and fighting alongside.
Compounding those military threats is a recent spike in political tensions between Afghan President Hamid Karzai and the U.S.
