Posted on 08/31/2012 5:57:06 AM PDT by kristinn
An adolescent boy and a young girl have been beheaded in two separate incidents in Afghanistan, local officials and police said on Friday, in the latest brazen attacks that have raised fresh questions about a splintering Taliban.
In Kandahar's Zhari district, officials also said on Friday that a 16-year-old boy accused by the Taliban of spying for the government was beheaded and skinned in late July.
Such incidents highlight the difficulty that Taliban leaders have in enforcing discipline across an estimated 20,000 fighters spread from Afghanistan to Pakistan.
The central Taliban leadership is trying to improve the group's image in case it wants to push forward tentative reconciliation steps and perhaps even enter mainstream politics. But some militant units are hard to control, roaming the countryside and attacking those deemed immoral.

Not to worry, Reuters. Obama consultants will be there to take care of the Talibs problems.
Coming soon to a neighborhood near you with more Muslims, more Mosques and Madrassehs and more Muslim suck-up-politicians like Obama, Christie etc. in BOTH parties.
I wonder if Grover Norquist gave these people technical support?
“beheaded and skinned in late July”
Ah, more of Obama’s people and their phony ROP (”Revulsion of Peace”)
These vermin are alive and well in the USA just waiting to come out of their sleeper cells. It is why Odumbo Mugumbo does not want a secure border.
Also why the racist head of the Just-Us department is doing his best to make sure HIS PEOPLE do not have to show IDs to vote.
The democrats will be opening their convention with two hours of moslem prayers.
Islam denies Christ.
or was it vicey-versy ???
just damn...friggin evil is on parade...
Anybody who think Islam is a “religion” in a sense most rational people understand that term, needs a good enema to clear their brains.
I’ve decided Moslems are Reavers.
Ah yes. The religion of peace. So understanding and accepting of others beliefs. NOT! Knowing these clowns the probably skinned the kid before beheading him. Can we say barbarians? Probably not since that would probably be one of the new “code” words to fire up all us racists. Let’s see... PGA, golf, empty chair, we, them. I guess just about every word in the Funk and Wagnel’s is open for scrutiny now huh?
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
More expressions of peace from the sons of pig F’n dogs.
FUBO & FAD
Even the Mexican drug cartel doesn’t behead 6 year-olds. That I know of.
Beheading and skinning children is definitely going to hamper these efforts.
Truth be told, our supposed "allies" in the region are no less barbaric than the Taliban. As far as I'm concerned, the whole of Afghanistan is occupied by an ignorant, violent, stone-age people and not one of them is worth a single drop of American blood.
Put up a Geo-sync satellite with coverage of most of the Islamic world. Provide basic computers with satellite access. provide lots of educational programing including factual Islamic history and comparative religion. Include a news channel run by SGT Joe Friday, just the facts. This might even make money by providing cell phone coverage and selling advertising.
This would take time, fifty years plus. With our politicians unable to see further than two to four years and the possibility it would make money not cost money, it wont happen.
A new low for Reuters. As you point out, the article’s primary concern is the Taliban’s “difficulty” in “enforcing discipline.” Compare this to any Reuters story about any alleged American “atrocity”.
