Afghanistan; more claims of US torture

Afghanistan US torture flagLocals have reported that 9 people have gone ‘missing’ and some are being tortured by US elite forces in the Afghan province of Maidan Wardak.

Of course the US has denied the allegations but Afghan President Hamid Karzai has said that there is sufficient evidence for the claims and has told the US to withdraw its troops from the province within two weeks.

One of the most memorable acts of US brutality and barbarism in Afghanistan came in early 2010 when innocent civilians were deliberately targeted and murdered. The squadron were arrested after photographs of them posing with the murdered civilians came into the public domain.

The US military has a long history of human rights breaches and indiscriminate murder from VietNam and Korea right up to present day Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo.
