Posted on 07/13/2009 6:00:42 AM PDT by STARWISE
In an interview with CNN over the weekend, President Obama said that he'd just learned that a November 2001 incident in Afghanistan -- where hundreds if not thousands of Taliban prisoners were killed by an Afghan warlord and buried in a mass grave -- may not have been properly investigated.
"So what Ive asked my national security team to do is to collect the facts for me that are known," the president said.
"And well probably make a decision in terms of how to approach it ....
And if it appears that our conduct in some way supported violations of the laws of war, then I think that, you know, we have to know about that."

Boy, he's slimey.
Evil is as Evil does. By their fruits shall you know them. Judge a person by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Etc, etc.....
War crimes investigation - against Bush- ordered by TOTUS at onset of new US surge to try to win the war in Afghanistan
The tollybon are cheering- they needed the propaganda and morale boost since the US/Brit and coalition militaries are kicking butt (and taking casualties)
Excellent timing, TOTUS. Sabotaging your own military to score poilitical points with the hard left.
It will backfire.
Hundreds of Taliban killed? So the f*** what?? Dostum had free reign over the Mazer-e-sharif area. When he got on board — which, BTW, was a critical advantage for us — we needed to let him do what he needed to do. The Taliban rioted in that prison; what were the guards supposed to do? Let them go?
0bama’s obvious intent to weaken this nation is extremely disturbing. Go ahead dems — form your “truth commission.” Make it stand up the test of truth and you will fail.
What does he want to do, make financial reparations to the surviving TALIBAN members??
Bammy is a FOOL of he thinks the American NORMAL Public wants someone punished for killing TALIBANIS!
The reprobate is not trying to appease normal people, most are:
1) Other reprobates that make up his base (They are losing jobs/production as well)
2) Reprobates in the press that are “given” the excuse to focus their attention on besides reality
I believe they are proving they HATE our nation.
This is just about the most blatant form of ‘politicizing the war’ that Obama and the democrats have engaged in. It has nothing to do with Bush and our troops...yet he wants to toss it out there again to see if he can get his poll numbers up on the backs of our military and former CIC.
BTW....Does anyone else find it hard to believe that Obama is just now hearing about this for the first time when the allegations surfaced back in 2002? The man lies with abandon, doesn’t he?
I suppose they could also investigate the US for war crimes for carpet bombing Tora Bora- those poor tollybons never had a chance to surrender and we even desecrated some prayer rugs and a koran or 2 in those terrorist training camps
Absolutely .. God bless and protect them all,
staunch warriors for our security.
May God protect our troops from this dangerous, dangerous man.
The jerk needs to know that a real massacre was done in 2001 - and it wasn’t by our boys.
