Mistakes happen

NATO is always innocent. Why do people pick on NATO? Just because they bomb and shoot and kill civilians? How unfair. "NATO said Wednesday's raid in the Qara Bagh district targeted a Taliban commander and the four killed were suspected insurgents, including a 15-year-old boy shot while allegedly reaching for a soldier's gun. But villagers insisted the dead were civilians."

PS Nir Rosen sent me this from Kabul (I cite with his permission): "i met today with the parliament member from qara bagh district. he's not anti occupation and even wants more operations but he confirmed that all the dead were innocent and were not fighters and two were quite young".
