“What Was My Father’s Crime?” Son Asks as 92 Year Old Father Murdered By American Special Forces

On March 21, 2010, a joint U.S. and Afghan force, killed a 92-year-old civilian, Abdul Ghani Khan, in Wardak Province, Afghanistan. In this interview, the slain man’s son, Zaitullah Ghiasi Wardak, relates the family’s account of the night his father was murdered.

Khan’s death is the latest in a string of civilian killings by U.S. special forces in night raids. Earlier this year, special forces killed 3 women -two of them pregnant – along with two local Afghan government officials and then tried to cover it up.

The U.S. military strategy in Afghanistan is expected to rely even more heavily on special forces in the future.

These incidents are moral outrages, and contrary to popular rhetoric, it doesn’t make Britain any safer.

    Putting a bullet between the eyes of a defenceless old man who’s fast asleep.

    You guys are real hero’s.

    Wikileaks is just the tip of the war crimes that are being committed in afghanistan and iraq
