By now we've all heard the horrible story of the cold-blooded murder of 16 Afghanis by an American soldier, and by now we've also all heard of the disarming of American soldiers during Secretary of Defense Leo Panetta's recent visit to that suffering country. But there are now reports coming out of there that the Afghanis are not buying the story that this was all the act of one "lone nut" soldier on a shooting spree:

Is the U.S. covering for additional troops involved in Afghan massacre?

The Afghanis are correct, how indeed does one person do this within a short span of time in two different villages? Why the rush to get that alleged murderer back to the USA so quickly? Why, for that matter, were soldiers disarmed during Panetta's visit.

It could, I suppose, be reasonably argued that this was a normal security procedure. But I suspect strongly that it is something else, namely, a reflection on the part of the grunts on the ground of a growing morale problem, and even a growing moral problem brought about by yet another war-without-end or any clear condition of "victory" in site, and if this horrible massacre is any indicator, a growing disenchantment with the "reasons" advanced for our being there: the "war on terrorism." The stories we have been fed since 9/11 are collapsing, and this time not even the Afghani president, in some respects a US puppet, is buying:

“'On the question of the account of the one person, supposedly, who has done this, the story of the village elders [in the region of the killings] and the affected people is entirely different. They believe it is not possible for one person to do that,' Karzai said."

Rest assured, we will hear next to nothing of the Afghanis' version of this tragic event on our compliant media. But the questions that the Afghani Parliamentary inquiry raises deserve to be address, nay, if there is to be any justice in the matter, they must be addressed.

    The reason we are never leaving Afghanistan is because to leave would mean turning over the poppy fields to someone else’s control and the CIA would loose their cash crop. It is common knowledge that the CIA is heavily involved in the importation of illegal drugs to the USA. Many of our troops are returning disgusted and disillusioned with the fact that they spent their entire time there guarding the poppy fields (heroin crop) Angry? Who wouldn’t be.

    You can;t fool the Afghanistan people they have fighting since the seventies. And would know how many soldiers it would take to carry out such a massacre. What is the US government really hiding stay tune.

    ‘The Afghanis are correct, how indeed does one person do this within a short span of time in two different villages?’
    Quite simply Dr Farrell one man alone, a ‘lone nut’, could not have done this. There is obviously more people involved than just SGT Oswald, sorry I meant SGT Bales. Afghans now how to fight, they have proven it time and time again so if there was just one man more than likely they would have been more than capable of putting him down.
    The PTB seem to have an obsession with ‘lone nuts’. Oswald and here in Australia, Martin Bryant, are some examples. I have come to believe that when a ‘lone nut’ is involved in a politically charged incident then something else is definitely going on. Trying to prove to me that SGT Bales did this alone is like trying to prove that 911 was pulled off by a terrorist group operating from caves in Afghanistan. Bollocks.

    ‘Why the rush to get that alleged murderer back to the USA so quickly?’
    Well we wouldn’t want him to talk about what really happened now would we?
    Obviously they are beginning the cover up process.

    ‘Why, for that matter, were soldiers disarmed during Panetta’s visit.’
    This is the interesting aspect, very interesting indeed. I can tell you as a former soldier that the explanation of security and such is pure codswallop. One of the first things a soldier is taught is to be NEVER without his arms in a combat zone under ANY circumstances. If you need to have a shower, you take your rifle with you. If you need to take a dump you ensure you have your rifle before you even worry about toilet paper.
    Dis-arming the troops in the Secdef’s presence tells me one thing only. They no longer trust the troops. It tells me that the legions are disaffected. Sounds like the boys and girls there have had enough and are no longer buying the crap that is being fed to them.

    This story is more important than many realise for a variety of reasons and good on you Dr Farrell for keeping an eye on it. Something fishy is going on with this and one must wonder what it is really all about.

      I’m waiting for the alleged massacre of ‘innocent’ people or aid workers etc by the Taliban so the troops will have someone to be pissed off at for a little while,other than their respective Governments. Some kind of ‘un provoked’ nasty deed the requires revenge.

      I agree (once again) with Legio. As a former soldier you just DON”T remove your weapon under any circumstances. At least we Australians don’t.

      My Lai any one?

        Absolutely Matt, and I am still waiting to see what they do with this one.

    DR. Farrell; Thank You for all of your insight and willingness too share. I think this whole Afgan problem is just a death match between the Army and the CIA. You had noted how angry the Army was with the CIA for using their airfields and uniforms for their Drones now its payback time.

    Webster Tarpley & Jim Fetzer did a story on this when it came out, as did Stephen Lendman. Right after the one lone nut telltale signature of bogus front story appeared all over the privatized public airwaves & progaganda rags, these aforementioned, real newsman said, in effect, that it was a revenge killing by an American squad of soldiers, unable to get the men who had killed some of their buddies, so they went the easy way, killed their defenseless families instead.

      all roads lead to the forbidden city…that is your NWO….fuckusHima is a ruse…they put the most lethal element in the hydrogen reactors before they blew them.

      The infighting cold war was another ruse to look at our western worlds weaknesses in the 2 systems, the spy of course was the lady in the red silk dress as usual.

      Duly noted, and thanks for the correction. Clearly a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing.

    Not to nitpick, Entropy Reducer, but Afghans are a kind of knit blanket with lots of holes in them…

    I like to dig my fingers into these holes. Ruins the blanket over time, but it feels so good.

    infighting over the poppy fields, looks like Dorthys Tin Man blew a fuse….

    On day one publications like the AP the NYTimes and the BBC all mentioned these reports by Afghans of more than one murderer. Even this World Net Daily clone post is from a month ago.

  10. Entropy Reducer on April 26, 2012 at 5:16 am

    Not to nitpick, as I realize Farrell is an excellent writer, but the Afghani is a unit of currency. The people of Afghanistan are called Afghans.
