Eleven Afghans Killed Over Last Two Days By Taliban

by Steve

Six more Afghans were killed today by the Taliban (you remember them don't you?), after five were killed yesterday by the Taliban. Even though we have been told by our president that Afghanistan has been liberated and that the Taliban have been defeated, the country is largely still in the hands of war lords, re-emerging drug traffickers, and regional governors not loyal to Unocal toady and Afghan president Hamid Karzai. The eleven Afghans killed over the last two days by the supposedly defeated Taliban were employees of an American consulting firm that was working allegedly on anti-drug programs without apparently any security escort.

Given the claims of the White House over the last several days, I'm sure these attacks were also caused by the Newsweak story.
