Top Trenders: U.S. Troops Possibly Killed By Friendly Fire

The Pentagon is investigating a possible friendly-fire incident that killed five American troops in Afghanistan.
Here are your Top Trenders for Tuesday, June 10th!

NUMBER 5 - HILLARY CLINTON BOOK RELEASED
Hillary Clinton's new book hits store shelves and e-readers today. "Hard Choices" primarily documents the her life after her husband left the White House, including the 2008 presidential campaign and her time as secretary of state. If you're looking for big bombshells though, you might be disappointed. Reviewers at the New York Times Book Review and Slate say there's very little in the book that hasn't already been reported. Clinton makes only a very brief mention of a possible presidential run in 2016, writing, "I haven't decided yet."

NUMBER 4 - CALIFORNIA CHROME OWNER APOLOGIZES
The co-owner of California Chrome is apologizing to horse racing fans and "the world" for his bitter remarks after the Belmont Stakes. California Chrome tied for fourth Saturday, and his co-owner, Steve Coburn, went on a post-race tirade. He complained that none of the horses that beat California Chrome raced in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. His horse won both and Coburn was gunning for the Triple Crown. Monday, he said Tonalist won the race "fair and square," and said he was ashamed of himself for his rants.

NUMBER 3 - STERLING TO FIGHT TEAM SALE
Donald Sterling's attorney says his client is withdrawing support for the Los Angeles Clippers' sale, several media outlets are reporting. Sterling will also be filing the $1 billion lawsuit against the NBA. Last week, Sterling and his attorney Max Blecher said they would accept the $2 billion sale to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Sterling co-owns the Clippers with his estranged wife Shelly.

NUMBER 2 - SHOOTING COUPLE DISTRUSTED COPS
Police say the couple who shot and killed three people in Las Vegas saw law enforcement as "the oppressor." Authorities are now delving through Jerad and Amanda Miller's social media posts. Anti-government rants filled Jerad's Facebook profile. Police say the couple equated government and law enforcement with Nazis. The Millers killed two police officers in Sunday's shooting spree, before killing themselves.

NUMBER 1 - U.S. TROOPS KILLED BY FRIENDLY FIRE?
The Pentagon is investigating a possible friendly-fire incident that killed five American troops in Afghanistan. It happened Monday in the southern province of Zabul. This is file video of the same region. The New York Times cites an Afghani police chief who said he called for air support to fend off a Taliban attack. He said an aircraft mistakenly bombed the American soldiers and an Afghani soldier.
