What they do in our name

Thanks to Wikileaks and heroic leakers inside the military, we now know the U.S. government has killed many more innocent Afghan civilians than we were aware of heretofore. We also know that American military and intelligence personnel roam Afghanistan assassinating suspected bad guys. Sometimes they kill people they later acknowledge weren’t bad guys at all. ‘Bad guys,’ like ‘Taliban,’ is implicitly defined as anyone who resists the U.S. occupation force and the corrupt puppet government it keeps in power. What other atrocities are our misleaders and misrepresentatives committing in our name?

Civilian Casualties in Afghanistan: Beyond the Body Count

Mike Ludwig, Truthout: "The United Nations announced on Tuesday that the rate of civilian casualties in Afghanistan is reaching an all-time high as the US-led occupiers escalate a war that has ravaged the country since 2001. The report proves that the situation is getting worse for the people of Afghanistan amid allegations that coalition governments have attempted to cover up recent civilian massacres. The report tracks 2010 civilian casualties up to June 30, and does not include the consequences of escalated fighting during July."
