Maybe NATO are starting to get their priorities right, after all NATO is a defence treaty to protect westerners whose country are part of NATO, not Afghans.
I don't think we can be responsible for every single Afghan life.
We'll never know whether this was one NATO should have been responsible for.
NATO was never meant as a nation building tool, dismantling road-side bombs etc, let the bloody Afghan army & police do that asap. Then really destroy the taliban this time, and then # off home.

Well its real simple to find out who killed him. NATO uses 5.56 rounds and the insurgents use 7.62 rounds. I have seen enough CSI to know that an autopsy would reveal who in fact killed him. But I suppose he's just an Afghani so he doesn't matter.
