Sunday's attack came a day after an Afghan commando fired on US troops, wounding seven American soldiers.
American military commanders in Afghanistan have requested thousands of additional boots on the ground to boost the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troop presence in the country.
Western officials say most insider attacks stem from personal grudges and cultural misunderstandings rather than insurgent plots.
Meanwhile, two officials from Pakistan's consulate in eastern Afghanistan have gone missing, Islamabad said yesterday, urging Kabul to ensure that they were safe.
At least one Afghan soldier was killed and another wounded, the official said.
USA troops in Afghanistan now number about 8,400, with another 5,000 from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, who mainly serve in a training and advisory capacity.
According to the spokesman of the Afghan Ministry of Defense Mohammad Radmanish, joined by the AFP, the American soldiers "were visiting the base of Shahin when they were wounded in the attack". The Taliban claimed responsibility for that attack, which unfolded on June 10 in eastern Afghanistan.
"One attacker blew up his vehicle at the entrance of the headquarters, opening the way for two others who opened fire on the security forces while another suicide bomber was killed", Mr Shirzad said. The gunman - an Afghan - had been shot and killed, the spokesman said.
North Atlantic Treaty Organisation said an investigation into the incident has been launched. He had initially announced that three United States soldiers had been wounded.
