In memory of 


A father

His two sons

and a guest



on January 29, 2009



in a compound in Arghandab district, Kandahar Province. U.S. occupation forces and Afghan police allegedly searching for a “Taliban suspect” entered a compound and firing broke out. A resident, Abdul Nabi, told Agence France Presse that “one father, two sons and a guest were killed in the foreign forces’ raid.” Other persons were arrested. Predictably, the U.S. propaganda media said its troops killed “four militants” in an operation against a Taliban bomb maker. In a new twist clearly aimed at news management, the U.S. statement said 9 women and 17 children present in the compound remained unharmed during the operation “due to the precise actions of the coalition (sic) forces.” Only Agence France Presse found this news worthy of reporting.
