Videos Show Dead Afghan Children After US Raid

Click to Read

Videos Show Dead Afghan Children After US Raid The bodies of at least 10 children and many more adults covered in blankets and white shrouds appear in videos obtained by The Associated Press on Monday, lending weight to Afghan and UN allegations that a US-led raid last month killed more civilians than the US reported. The sounds of wailing women mixed with the voices of men shouting inside a white-walled mosque in the western village of Azizabad, where an Afghan government commission and UN report said some 90 civilians — including 60 children and 15 women — were killed.

What I find frustrating is that these pictures are shown, the outrage appears, and then when we find out the pictures are doctored, or misrepresented the truth, then no one gets equally outraged at the attepmted deceit. I'll hold my disappointment until after the investigation shows that these people were actually killed by American weapons.

What saddens me is that despite the influx of these images and videos into the broadcast and electronic media, many will turn a blind eye to it all together. It disappoints me to have such little faith in my fellow country folk, but when is enough really going to be enough? Don't they realize actions like this make it quite difficult for us ex-Pats? Its hard to travel at times without feeling like the American Devil, despite my vehement opposition to the rather brutal "peace keeping" efforts by my home country.

The conviction of the British terrorists has revealed that they were recruited in Pakistan at a refugee camp set up after the invasion of Afghanistan. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/you-will-be-destroyed-bombers-convicted-of-heathrow-plot-923467.html

This is definitely gruesome. The part I found most interesting was "It was impossible to verify conclusively that the videos showed the aftermath of the Azizabad attack," but I'm glad to see that there is going to be a joint investigation.

To me, it is as horrible and immoral as any picture a pro-lifer can produce.

It's horrible. Unfortunately, I think it's something our leaders and the voters need to see. It's like out of sight, out of mind and that NOT how things in Afghanistan should be. "We" created this.

This is entirely too tragic and revolting.
