Joint Statement by the Delegations Assigned to Probe Bagram Incident
Saturday, 25 February 2012 09:02
In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate
Following the insulting and shameful act of burning Quran in Bagram airbase that injured the religious sentiments of the Islamic world and particularly of the Afghan Muslim nation, two delegations comprising of representatives from government, the National Council of Ulemma and the National Assembly were assigned and dispatched to investigate the circumstances and causes that have led to the inhumane incident.
The delegations, while deeply touched by the religious sentiments shown by the Afghan Muslim and Mujahid nation, inform our citizens of the following:
1. In view of the particular security situation in the country, we call on all our Muslim citizens of Afghanistan to exercise self-restraint and extra vigilance in dealing with the issue and avoid resorting to protests and demonstrations that may provide ground for the enemy to take advantage of the situation.
2. After the shameful incident by the US soldiers stationed in Bagram, senior NATO and American officials expressed their deep apologies to the Muslim nation of Afghanistan and assured that such incidents will not happen again.
3. NATO officials promised to meet Afghan nations demand of bringing to justice, through an open trial, those responsible for the incident and it was agreed that the perpetrators of the crime be brought to justice as soon as possible.
4. The assigned delegations demand from the government of Afghanistan to take over from the Americans the authority of the Bagram prison so no such incidents can recur and calls on the US government to fully and comprehensively cooperate to this end.
5. The delegations also want from the Afghan government to formally praise those brave Afghan army soldiers and all others who showed feelings against the disrespectful act by preventing more religious books and Quran copies from burning, so that the pure Muslim sentiments of our honored Mujahid nation can remain alive.
"...who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men, have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavoring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world, and through all time;...that it is time enough for the rightful purposes of civil government, for its officers to interfere when principles break out into overt acts against peace and good order; and finally, that truth is great and will prevail if left to herself, that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them. ""I HAVE SWORN UPON THE ALTAR OF GOD ETERNAL HOSTILITY TO EVERY FORM OF TYRANNY OVER THE MIND OF MAN"--The Virginia Act For Establishing Religious Freedom

Beyond belief that the US would agree to this!
On the other hand, with Obama as president, such things should not surprise us.
What would Ronald Reagan do compared to this nit we’ve got now?
What exactly are the guys who burned the Korans going to be charged with?
Unbelievable. Looks like something that Borat or “The Dictator”
would have written in a mock Hollywood production.
The current Status of Forces Agreement forbids this !!!!
If this is allowed to go forward U.S. Forces ANYWHERE in the world are at risk !!!!!
OFFICIAL AFGHAN GOVERNMENT WEBSITE - NATO agrees to allow persecution of Koran burners!
There, now it makes more sense.
Gotta hand it to the Afghanis. They are masters of black humor.
What's the difference?
Oh that's right one is burning paper and the other is killing babies
What about the Muslims who “desecrated” the Korans by writing in them? Will they be prosecuted as well?
NO F-ing way, NATO! NO F-ing WAY IN HELL!
NATO writes the rules of engagement, which is why the ‘war’ will never be won by America.
When you see a headline that said NATO troops killed, they mean AMERICANS.
Germany is calling the shots using American soldiers to promote the EU agenda with NATO.
Corruption, corruption, corruption is killing Americans in Afghanistan.
Screw NATO. Pure BS.
They’ll be charged under the clean air act, for failing to gain the proper burn authorization, neglecting to file the proper environmental impact report, and disturbing the religious freedom of people bent on killing us.
I suspect the Afghan Gov’t is simply engaging in a PR exercise with their local population.
Certainly, one can never trust anything they say anyway, and this is likely included.
Has it become the 7th century again? UnFreakin’Real!
If it were me, I would tell Karzai that unfortunately we don’t have any laws against burning trash.
In the name of God the true god, the Alpha and the Omega, the God of Abraham Issac and Jabob, give our leaders wisdom and use them to enforce your glory and smite this evil Allah, blight upon humanity
So they will be what? Executed by the afghanis for desecration?
This is beyond madness.
I’m beginning to wonder if we shouldn’t just go full on raving ronpaul and bring every one of our soldiers home.
That gets me angry
Let us pray this claim is accurate, for it will guarantee the end of the Obama regime.
That is idiotic,they are not under Shariah law.If what they did was wrong,then let them no longer serve in a Muslim country and the United States can ship them home.
Much more mild than my response. I'd summon him before me, burn a Koran on live Afghanistan television and then announce that for every death a mosque will be leveled. The first three have been picked and will be demolished in 15 minutes with high explosive munitions. Those in and around mosques might want to move away now, just in case their mosque was one that was randomly selected.
There's a reason why I'm usually the last one picked to play 'global leader.'
Prediction: Mass Koran burnings in US about to occur. Interner about to be doubled in size due to number video uploads. All governmental/liberal whining about ‘offense’ ignored.
In Pakistand 1,000s of Korans turn up in sewers and cesspools every year.
They have lost the Consent of the Governed. And you know what THAT means.
Time to pull out of NATO.
I don’t believe the Muslim government website’s claims. It’s propaganda in the hope of calling off the radical dogs they stirred up.
The President of Afghanistan is dead meat if he does not get things under control and we pull out. We should pull out and turn him over to the Muslim dogs he stirred up.
If that happens and the troops involved get more than a letter of reprimand for not following proper pre-established procedures, we should demand that the apologist-in-chief resign, and if he won't that the House impeach his sorry ash, and the Senate convict it, immediately. Of course the Senate wouldn't convict, but the exercise would be worthwhile nonetheless.
They better prosecute me too then, for I’d do worse to Satan’s handbook.
Here is an apology that ROCKS!
Time to make Quran toilet paper.
Consider the source
Heh! That was pretty sweet.
We soooo need to bring our guys out of that cesspool NOW...and let them blow it to smithereens on their way out...the entire world would be better off without those people.
She’s kinda sweet too. :-)
This is evil operating plain and simple!
I’m not so sure it’s just muzzie propaganda. I’m pretty sure that Obama promised in one of his most recent serial apologies to see that the people involved were identified and punished, and I know that either a US general or some NATO figure also mentioned this on Saturday.
I wouldn’t be surprised if it happens.
That said, I’m not sure who they could blame or for what. I bet you will find that disposing of a defaced Koran by burning it is probably in the official guidelines somewhere, since that is what the muzzies themselves are supposed to do with a defaced Koran, and this was standard practice. So I’m not sure there are any charges they could bring against either the officers who ordered it or the enlisted people who carried it out.
But I’m sure they’ll find something if they try hard enough. After all, one of the Afghanis I saw interviewed helpfully pointed out that the punishment is normally death, but maybe the Muslims would settle for something less in this case. So this means that Barry’s great influence has gotten us a break, right?
I`m not yet ready to credence to this. Muslims treat rumor as fact and lie like snakes on a country road. How about we see first if any non-muslim reporting is substantiating the story?
One of the worst errors this country ever committed was aiding the Afghan muslim filth against Soviet occupation. We should`ve aided the Soviets.
Prediction: Mass Koran burnings in US about to occur.
No freaking kidding! And we need to burn some Afghan flags and brutalize some effigy’s of Karzai and Mohammad.
It takes little imagination to determine the outcome of this trial. Can we sit by while our troops are sacrificed to some primitive god?
