Who is Imam Ahmad Wais Afzali really?

As the Pentagon and D.C. cover up for US Sgt Robert Bales and his US soldier comrades who murdered a dozen and a half people including over half being children, they have continued with yet another antiMuslim show trial against several hapless immigrant, former New York City cab drivers who have been accused of conspiracy to launch a terrorist attack on the New York City subways. At the center of this trial though, is a man the US government openly has spirited out of the US to Saudi Arabia! He is 'Imam Ahmad Wais Afzali'. ...Why is this man being kept hidden away by the US government while being allowed to roam completely free to any US public observation? 32839

Oh, he’s Mr. Nice American Guy alright

'Bales, a student of Middle Eastern history and customs, often admonished younger GIs to treat noncombatants with courtesy and respect, Alexander said. "Some guys had a pretty negative attitude, but Bales wasn't like that at all. He said there was no need to be a jerk. Be polite, be professional and have a plan to kill everyone you meet if you need to." (from The Seattle Times report about Robert Bales ...Oh, he's Mr. Nice Guy alright! He's the all American guy, from an all American family, with an all American attitude!

Did US Staff Sergeant Robert Bales engage in a US military revenge killing?

(Robert Fisk) 'The Afghan narrative has been curiously lobotomised censored, even by those who have been trying to explain this appalling massacre in Kandahar. They remembered the Koran burnings when American troops in Bagram chucked Korans on a bonfire and the deaths of six Nato soldiers, two of them Americans, which followed. But blow me down if they didn't forget and this applies to every single report on the latest killings a remarkable and highly significant statement from the US army's top commander in Afghanistan, General John Allen, exactly 22 days ago. Indeed, it was so unusual a statement that I clipped the report of Allen's words from my morning paper and placed it inside my briefcase for future reference. 31766

I’ll see your Staff Sgt Robert Bales and raise you 15 death squad members

Everyone from the US Department of Defense to the School of the Americas knows it takes a village to raze a death squad, or vice versa. According to the manual, if you want to storm houses in the middle of the night, gather the male family members for execution, shoot everyone in the head, gather stray bodies into a pile, pour gasoline over them and burn them, then repeat the operation in a neighboring village, you need a death squad, possibly two, especially if everyone's drunk. US forces have pulled off so many of these massacres in Iraq and Afghanistan, that it's a wonder military analysts don't recognize the Panjwayi raid as a textbook operation. If the official US spin is to be believed, and one drunken staff sergeant can do the work of 15-20, I'm thinking our entire NATO force in Afghanistan could be reduced by the same factor without jeopardizing US kill goals.
