7:14 am
john waters, is speaking out about his more recent and troubling claim to fame, a scathing report that cost him his job. >> the fact that this report makes that the culture is some kind of "animal house" fraternity is just not accurate. >> reporter: a 92-page report alleges he knew about and failed to stop a, quote, sexualized culture of pranks, tricks and rituals among band students, but waters argues more than the nine current and former band members cited in the report should have been interviewed. >> the sample size was tremendously small for such an important issue as band culture. >> reporter: according to the report, students regularly hazed rookies, performed sexually explicit stunts and marched into the stadium in their underwear late at night in a tradition called midnight ramp. in a video statement the university's president arguing firing waters was the only solution. >> even one instance of harassment or hazing or assault is one too many. >> reporter: do you feel you were a scapegoat?
7:15 am
>> i think that i was a victim of a rush to judgment and a very inaccurate report. >> reporter: waters argues the problems started long before he arrived. >> when you are dealing with a culture that is entrenched, again, since the 1930s, this does not change overnight. >> reporter: he says university officials never asked him to investigate misconduct, and insists he began working on culture reform before the investigation. >> no one came to me and said that the culture of the band is an issue and needs to change. i realized that myself. >> reporter: in a statement, ohio state tells abc news "the former director was aware or reasonably should have known about this culture, but failed to eliminate it, prevent its recurrence and address its effects." and the university has named an interim director and says they are beginning the process of launching a national search to find a new, permanent director. amy, george. >> thanks.

7:22 am
imagine, loving your numbers. introducing once-daily invokana®. it's the first of a new kind of prescription medicine that's used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. invokana® is a once-daily pill that works around the clock to help lower a1c. here's how: the kidneys allow sugar to be absorbed back into the body. invokana® reduces the amount of sugar allowed back in, and sends some sugar out through the process of urination. and while it's not for weight loss, it may help you lose some weight. invokana® can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause some people to have loss of body water and salt. this may also cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak especially when you stand up. other side effects may include kidney problems, genital yeast infections, urinary tract infections, changes in urination, high potassium in the blood, or increases in cholesterol.
7:23 am
do not take invokana® if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis or if allergic to invokana® or its ingredients. symptoms of allergic reaction may include rash, swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing. if you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking invokana® and call your doctor right away or go to the nearest hospital. tell your doctor about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and if you have kidney or liver problems. using invokana® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase risk of low blood sugar. it's time. lower your blood sugar with invokana®. imagine loving your numbers. ask your doctor about invokana®. with a splash of style. let's do modest budget major make over then enjoy the view. let's do this. more saving. more doing.

7:30 am
don't put it off any longer. >> announcer: this is an abc news special report good morning, everyone. for those of you just joining us, i'm amy robach, breaking news. a deadly attack on u.s. troops in afghanistan. a man dressed in an afghan army uniform opening fire in a so-called insider attack. one american killed, 15 others, nato troops, we believe, injured in the attack. it's at a base west of kabul. just one year olds, and considered the afghan equivalent of west point academy. the shooter was killed, and three afghan army officers wounded. and head to martha raddatz, joining us by phone. we know you have been to afghanistan several times. tell us what you are hearing from your sources at this hour.
7:31 am
>> reporter: a u.s. official confirms that the american who was killed was a two-star general. a major general in the u.s. army. this is a report from a u.s. official who would know the circumstances. this is, of course, the highest-ranking official ever killed in afghanistan. and as far as i know, ever killed in iraq as well. the last two-star general who was killed was in vietnam. that was not under hostile circumstances. he died in a helicopter crash. that was major general george casey sr. his son went on to become chief of staff of the army. but the reports from a u.s. official are that a two-star general was killed in this attack. it would seem to me that general was probably targeted. usually the generals are surrounded by personal security details. and also with afghan troops, you have a guardian angel, other
7:32 am
u.s. troops looking out for each other just in case one of these attacks happened. >> martha, this has been referred to as an insider attack. describe what that means. >> reporter: that means an insider attack, it's called a green on blue. it is forces we are fighting with turn on us instead. this has happened numerous times in afghanistan throughout the years, certainly in iraq as well. but mostly in afghanistan. it was a huge problem several years ago. i was other there at a time when there was an epidemic of the green on blue shootings. they have calmed down in recent months, but that may be because u.s. forces aren't out in great numbers anymore there. >> and you highlighted this, this general was the highest-ranking member of the american military to die in the conflict in afghanistan. talk about the significance of what has occurred today. >> reporter: well, when you lose a general officer like that, it
7:33 am
is absolutely devastating. certainly no life is worth more than any other life, but to lose a general, to lose a commander, is devastating to troops. and that two-star general was probably someone in his 50s. he has been in the army for a very, very long time. probably knows so many people and is so well-known by so many. it is truly devastating news for the troops. >> indeed it is. and i know you, martha, will continue to follow your sources to get the latest information as to what occurred. we want to turn to colonel steven michigan yard. and you can speak to the significance of the events of the day, and the impact on the military community in terms of u.s. response and troop morale as well over in afghanistan. >> amy, a couple of things to consider, consider it from the u.s. side. any form of trust between the afghans and the u.s. trainers has now been fully broken.
7:34 am
this is a premeditated attack. they picked us the general. there was a very senior afghan military official killed on wounded as well. it's going to break the bond of trust so important in the training environment. on the afghan side, probably an inside job set up by the taliban. it's a big propaganda coup for the taliban, it's not hard to be a traitor in the afghan military. >> head now to jonathan karl at the white house right now. very little time for the white house to have an official response yet. but surely that is coming. >> reporter: no doubt. no official response yet, amy. but i have to say, this is especially devastating because the central -- the center piece of president obama's strategy? afghanistan right now is to have u.s. trainers training up the afghan army to take over for the
7:35 am
united states. that is our mission right now. that is the u.s. mission is to train afghan troops so to have somebody reportedly dressed in afghan army uniform come in, kill an american two star general. and wes also know 15 other nato troops wounded. we don't know how many americans. but to have a shooting like this happen at the center of the training academy that the united states is using to train afghan troops to take over that mission, is truly devastating on many levels. obviously on a personal level, but also on a strategic level. that is what our mission right now is in afghanistan. it is to train those troops. hard to train troops from a foreign army when you have a situation like this coming in, such a devastating attack. >> speaking to the level of trust, or the non-trust at this point now. we appreciate that.
7:36 am
we know you'll stay on top of it. and martha raddatz, getting the latest from her sources on the ground, having been to afghanistan several times. i can only imagine what's happening on the ground. the chaos, you say this is a mass i have training base, just a year old. and now with this major general reportedly killed in this horrific attack this morning. >> reporter: the pictures you're looking at right now are at one of the training bases where they train the general troops in afghanistan. i have been to that base so many times. when i started going there, one of the generals in charge of training said the problem is the troops can't read, they can't shoot. they have certainly improved over the years in literacy and other training capabilities. the place where this shooti ini occurred was for officers. they were training officers at the base where the major general was reportedly killed today.
7:37 am
so that is a higher level. they'll want to know everything possible about who the shooter was, how this happened. did he know that major general was going to visit that base today? is there someone else involved? this was absolute chaos this morning. they didn't know at first how many americans were killed. there were early reports that i started hearing this morning that a two star was killed, but they couldn't confirm that, and now this u.s. official has. >> martha raddatz from washington. thank you so much, martha. we are going to return now to regular program. and in some parts of the country, that is "good morning america." and, of course, you can expect a complete wrapup tonight on world news with diane sawyer, and get those updates at abcnews.com. i'm amy robach in new york. have a great day. >> up to a stranger and talk to
