This 21-Year-Old Marine Predicted He Would Die At The Hands Of Afghan Security Forces

•, Michael Kelley

Lance Corporal Greg Buckley Jr. trained Afghan security forces in the restive Helmand Province before he and two other Marines were killed on Aug. 10 by one of the Afghans he was training.

Buckley knew something was wrong after a tormenting encounter with an Afghan trainee earlier in the year.

From CNN:
"The guy turned around and said to Greg, 'We don't want you here. We don't need you here,'" his dad said.
"Greg turned around again and said, 'Why would you say that?'" according to Greg Buckley Sr.
But the trainee apparently wouldn't relent, repeating the phrases for hours over the course of a night in which the young Marine was on guard watch.
"Greg said, 'I thought I was going to lose my mind,'" his father said. "Pitch black out, and all he kept saying over and over again is, 'We don't want you. We don't need you. We don't want you.'"
