A 14-year-old would-be suicide bomber from Pakistan, caught while on a mission to blow up an Afghan provincial governor, was pardoned on Sunday by President Hamid Karzai.
Taliban insurgents and their al Qaeda allies have launched a wave of suicide attacks against Afghan, NATO and U.S.-led forces in the last two years, seeking to show the government and its Western allies are incapable of providing security.
Most of the victims are Afghan civilians.

Is it possible that more then likely they pardoned him because he was innocent? Maybe some fanatics gave him a sack and didnt tell him what was inside of it. If the school was guilty Im sure it would be shut down. More then liekly there was a lot more to it then we know about.

I have no doubt there is more to it then is being said. However the man in question was caught wearing a suicide belt. And his target was revealed.
