Well, this is disconcerting.
Three Afghan soldiers who have been undergoing training at Camp Edwards in Massachusetts went missing on Saturday night following a trip to the Cape Cod Mall in Hyannis.
Officials from U.S. Central Command insist there's nothing to be alarmed about and that the three men have broken no laws and pose no threat to the public.
But how can we be so sure?
There have been numerous instances of Afghan military members turning on U.S. soldiers in recent years. If there are Afghan soldiers prepared to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan then is it really a stretch of the imagination to think that, if the opportunity presented itself, they would come to the United States and plot attacks either against our military bases or against civilian targets?
