From my OP: Witnesses say that when the trucks arrived and soldiers opened the containers, most of the people inside were dead. They also say US Special Forces re-directed the containers carrying the living and dead into the desert and stood by as survivors were shot and buried. Now, up to three thousand bodies lie buried in a mass grave.
Certainly, if you know the story, you’ll also remember that the US was in charge of the operation in Afghanistan that led to the massacre? If you want to debate the video’s truthfulness, please be my guest. That’s why I made this thread.
Senor Viscoso, I think you may not have skimmed Alde’s post thoroughly enough.
Or perhaps your comments are more enigmatic than usual. I usually get what you’re getting at even when others don’t appear to be though.
It seems that you were at first were addressing the OP, then it seems that you switch midstream and begin addressin smiling Bandit’s post instead.
I don’t have cable and I knew about it. I saw multiple programs on it years ago and I believe I mentioned it here in passing but I can’t remember the topic. I Don’t remember US soldiers driving any of the trucks. This was early in the war and was the result of (from what I remember) inter-tribal conflicts.
I couldn’t tell how much of this was deliberate or just stupidity. Some of the drivers knocked holes in the truck to give them air but I think this was the exception. A very gruesome death.
You might look over past Frontline exposé’s on the war for information. You can surely buy the episode from them.
No mystery, really, just calling a bluff. He was holding low: one pimply Jack on an Inside Straight.
Magiver: That’s a start, but it doesn’t really address the documentary in the OP. Since you seem somewhat sympathetic to the topic, are you at least able to watch the streaming video? I would be willing to rent some high-speed web time next weekend, when I can get to town. (Just not quite ready to fork over ~$35 plus shipping, thank you.)
I saw the film. End conclusion: Mostly shite. Message was, “Gee, America is a big dirty bird because someone told us that they knew a guy who said her heard of someone who saw some soldiers stand around and do nothing while container loads of prisioners were (or perhaps were not, he didn’t see that part, but his neighbor did, and hes missing now, so he must have been telling the truth) killed or died in the heat and buried or maybe taken somewhere else. Anyway, IT’S ALL AMERICA’S FAULT!!”
Seemed pretty slim to me. They had no evidence of any involvement of US troops or officals. If there was killin’, and I’ll bet there was, it was hot Afgan-on-Afgan action.
