The Bush Administration was accused this week of helping cover-up the massacre of possibly thousands of Taliban prisoners by an American-backed warlord, Gen. Abdul Rashid Dostum. Dostrum is widely viewed as a butcher and war criminal. He was also on the payroll of the CIA.
Bush officials repeatedly discouraged efforts by the F.B.I., the State Department, the Red Cross and human rights groups to investigate the massacre and said that it would undermine our war effort.
The report appears to show how readily Bush officials not only committed war crimes in the commission of torture but embraced war criminals as allies.
General Dostum is up for reappointment as military chief of staff to President Karzai.
We have, of course, demanded death of those responsible for massacring American troops at places like Malmédy — just as we prosecuted people for waterboarding our soldiers.

Right on Jill! Jeff Sharlet’s book, “The Family” is chilling.
I didn’t know that some believe that COINTELPRO has been taken over by the NSA and DIA but, it would make sense, in light of what I’ve seen and experienced.
Personally, I believe that you’re right — your taste in novels, aside.
Thank you for the information which, I realize, may or may not be true.
I posted a comment to another thread and, for the first time, was told that my comment was “awaiting moderation” or something to that effect. Is this a change or does anyone know what triggers the “moderation” process? (There as nothing offensive in the posting.)
I also have no proof but suspect that COINTELPRO never died, but was taken over by the NSA and DIA. Of course maybe I’ve read too many spy novels……..but.
