Washington (CNN) - A gunman believed to be an Afghan soldier opened fire at a training facility in Kabul and killed an American general - carnage that a Pentagon spokesman said marked the death of one of the highest-ranked U.S. military service members since 9/11.
The Pentagon did not formally release the name of the slain general, but U.S. officials identified him to CNN as Maj. Gen. Harold Greene.
Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby declined to identify the general, citing a policy of waiting 24 hours after the family is notified, but described him as a "very experienced officer" with "a lot of staff tours" and an "expert in infrastructure improvement, logistics."
