Afghan prosecutor issues arrest warrant for US army officer over police killing


www.guardian.co.uk

An Afghan prosecutor has issued an arrest warrant for an American special forces commander over allegations that a police chief was murdered by a US-trained militia.

Brigadier General Ghulam Ranjbar, the chief military prosecutor in Kabul, has accused the US of creating an outlaw militia which allegedly shot dead Matiullah Qateh, the chief of police in the city of Kandahar.

The arrest warrant, which has been circulated to border posts and airports, is an embarrassment for the US military, which is facing growing criticism for links to militias controlled by warlords. In Kandahar, the militias have been accused of murder, rape and extortion.


The list of US embarassments in Iraq and Afghanistan seem to be ever-growing. I don't understand how the US can deny any ties to the militia all the while funding them. Funny how things work.

It's also good to see some type of authority in the country stand up to an attrocity like this. Upholding real justice. If the story is correct, this is all ridiculous.

I thought we were at war?

Would this not be like an arrest warrant for some of the Canadian's killing Krauts in ww two?

I just want to thank users such as whiteraven, whose inability to read has slowly drained my faith in humanity.

Didn't really catch any sarcasm with your comment... I actually thought you were quite serious. Just because it's a war-torn country doesn't mean that justice should be thrown out the window.

Sorry, other people on this site have been messing with my head a little as you can see...and I can usually pick up on sarcasm pretty well over the internet too.

I guess next time use emoticons lol.

The idea lies in the irony of war.

It is a no win situation.

The irony is playing itself out now even in our little conversation.

I starred and flagged your thread before my comment.

Peace.


But we are at war and our boys are as much in the way of slander as anybody elses.

That statement can be true. But the US' reaction to the entire thing probably tells you they know something they don't want to divulge and gives the story credibility in my books.
