Afghan girl raped, killed by US troops


www.presstv.ir

The daughter of an Afghan politician has reportedly died of her injuries after being raped by American soldiers stationed in Afghanistan's southwestern province of Farah.

US forces aboard five Toyota Hiace vans transferred the teenage girl along with several other Afghan women and girls to a military base in the province. They then sexually assaulted them, Afghan sources, who requested anonymity, told Iran Newspaper on Network on Wednesday.

I didn't see this posted on ATS and didn't see anything on any mainstream news websites, so I thought I would post it here and see what ATS members have to say about it.
I figure there will not be any consequences for the soldier folks and that no mainstream news networks will pick up the story, but what do YOU think?

And this is a reliable source?

Afghan sources, who requested anonymity, told Iran Newspaper on Network on Wednesday.

Do you have any reliable source other than the Iranian Propaganda mill?

presstv is not the most credible source..
I'd like to see more info and collaboration of the details..

If true it is sickening and deserves the worst kind of punishment..

Pressir.tv? Yeah, no agenda there.


No units mentioned, no names, no dates.

Looks like another BS story out of Iran to smear the US. Can't wait to see how many ATS members chime in on this.

If true the soldier/soldiers in question should face trial however I find the story's source highly dubious at best though.

That story reads like high school level propaganda


Medical reports indicate that a young girl died as a result of severe bleeding that was caused by tears in her genitals from violent sexual penetration.

Who writes like that? I mean, a serious journalist would never write about the story as if it were a murder novel. Graphic language like that is so obviously designed to create rage in the reader it should make you question the motivations of the writer.

Not only is the source suspect, but they report this on the day we bury a 9 year old girl..?

If - a big if - this story is true, then those involved should be prosecuted.

I find your attitude about rape and death, repugnant.

Gee Afghans already consider us terrorists (I think so too) how about we slap them in the face by raping their children too? This is not war by any means. Well I mean it is true it is a war apparently to the United States, and we are losing miserably, but the US government would never tell you that! Not war to the Afghans I think. Maybe the US should have consulted the Former Soviet Union/ Now Russia on their expedition to try to control Afghanistan years ago..

Maybe you haven't realized that an Iranian reporter wrote that in English? I suggest you try to write an article in Farsi/Arabic and then you can get back to me!

Who really cares? Well I care, I think every individual life is important.

I know this isn't the greatest source, but I would not be surprised at all if it's true. Our soldiers have no regard for life in the middle east.

This will be something to follow but we must have the patience to wait until the story is absolutely verified. If true the accused should be tried. If guilty, the guilty should be given to the Afghan people to render the justice they see fit as publicly as possible.

Yea complete bs. There are pleanty of media outlets in the US that would jump all over this story, not to mention other large media groups outside the US. As much as there is to question about our recent military actions I think I'll still believe and put my faith in them over any sources from Afganistan & Iran.

American mainstream media is not reporting it, therefore it can't be true?

What kind of logic is that?
