A four day NATO offensive in Afghanistan’s Kunar Province has left at least 64 innocent civilians dead and several others wounded, according to both the provincial governor and the provincial police chief.
Gen. Ziayi, the police chief, said that of the slain, 15 were men, 20 women and 29 were children. The governor later confirmed the overall total but reported only 26 children, with 16 men and 22 women.
The public health director for Kunar says that eight civilians are still being treated for major injuries sustained in the offensive, including four children. He also said that officials have called on the Red Cross to investigate the attacks.
NATO has also promised an investigation, but insisted that they had video showing their ground troops killing “36 armed insurgents.” Since this was just one incident over the course of four days of offensives, it is unclear why they thought the existence of such a video would refute the claims of massive civilian deaths.

"They have a video showing ground troops killing 36 armed insurgents"
My God these MURDERERS are not only killers but are also STUPID.
One video to prove that they did not kill innocent civilians over a four day period???
This only proves that these murderers have no conscience and will kill Afghans like swatting flies because in their minds these lives are of no consequence..
Obama , Gates, Clinton and Petreaus are WAR CRIMINALS and shoud be tried and hanged for their crimes against humanity.
Actually have video of one encounter? Hmmmm. Wonder if they'd release even that tidbit to the public, the ones robbed to pay for it, or is it used instead for "quality control".
The day will come when these basterds will pay for the crime like hitler paid for his crimes.
Every knee will bow and everyone will stand before God to be confronted for every crime they have commited. Even if they justify it and even if they lie to themselves against what they know to be right and wrong. What most don't realize is that the first time you lie to yourself, when you're aware that your doing so, God was there watching the whole time. Who cares if you lied several more times to yourself to convince yourself. You knew it to be wrong the first time you told yourself it was ok. You'll still be held accountable. You're right, they will pay as we all will. I just thank God that I don't have that on my plate to answer for.
You forgot about Bush, Rumsfeld, Powell etc….etc
I think it's wishful thinking on our part that the invaders will pay for their crimes.
I don't know what makes me angrier, the killings in general or the US moralizing them away.
I, as an American agree with you. Just know that we all do not feel that it's ok.
Benevolent, humanitarian, civilized, democratic and above all exceptional Nazi scum demonstrates it's true values.
West i.e. NATO forces and americans are brutal killers of this century for their ego,hegemony and lies the poor Muslims are being killed.
As Irakis tell all the men upto 25 years have been killed by black water and one film was shown in Germany how helicopters are killing irakis in Baghdad with women and children in the car.
Afghanistan is now worst and before leaving americans will kill as many as they can in the name of terrorism.
God is there and i am sure americans will get their punishment and one thing is evident that american economy is totally destroyed and others will follow.
You shouldn't be so racist against all Americans. We all do not agree with what is being done there. If I followed that logic, I would hate and blame all muslims since it was muslim extremists that blew up the world trade centers and lit the fuse to this war bomb that's going off in our faces now. Is that the way we're supposed to think of one another? Are we to blame the whole for what a part decides and carries out. Or do we look at it like the God you indirectly claim to follow and look at each person individually? You're being unfair by grouping all Americans together. We all have different oppinions. The American government has recently set aside a budget in the event that there's an uprising and civil war breaks out, if that tells you anything about how diverse the government's and civilian's feelings are.
Not to worry. They're now trying to allow college kids to carry guns on campus. The carnage will start soon. In case it hasn't already. They don't need anybody to do the job for them, they're quite capable of doing it themselves.
"Refute the claims". Sees to be a similar response to the one used by the US Army when initial reports were circulating about a massacre in My Lai, Vietnam.
As any historian will tell you, the more things change, the more they remain the same.
Going to suck when they start blowing up entire towns in the USA to catch 1 drug dealer….
They gun down half deaf individuals on the streets of Seattle. It wouldn't surprise me.
They will never go that far. Crime would cease and there would be less of a need for such a large oversized government. Not to mention, half of the drug dealers are more than likely sponsored by someone high up on the political ladder. Politically it would be poison one more than one level to the government.
So when is Beck going to put down his totalitarian piece of chalk and actually "report" from the front lines and show this sort of stuff? Oh, wait… a cold day in hell.
It's "insurgent math," for every innocent person you kill, you create 10 new enemies." ~ Gen. Stanley McChrystal
64 dead innocents x 10 = 640 enemies
Not bad for a day's work.
