If you think that prisoner abuse in Iraq is bad – you haven’t seen anything yet. I snagged this video off the Internet about a year ago and I think it’s finally time I posted it.
Convoy of Death
There’s only one war on our television screens now – that other war, the one from just a year ago, has been forgotten – but not by everyone. In Afghanistan, filmmaker Jamie Doran has uncovered evidence of a massacre: Taliban prisoners of war suffocated in containers, shot in the desert under the watch of American troops.
After screening the videotape last fall, the European Parliament called for an investigation. The United Nations has authorized an official investigation into the film’s allegations, but only if the security of its members can be guaranteed. And security is hard to find in northern Afghanistan. Since this documentary was filmed, eyewitnesses have been tortured. Others have disappeared or been killed.
This video is about how the US slaughtered 3000 Afgan prisoners of war. The video is big – 55 megs download and it is shocking. It makes the Black Hole of Calcutta look like a picnic. These prisoners were left in sealed truck containers to suffocate and fry in the hot sun. The few that survived a week were taken out and shot an buried in mass graves.
The video is EXTREMELY disturbing and it will give you nightmares. If you are not ready to see this footage – DO NOT WATCH IT !!! This is NAZI level stuff.

Once you’ve seen this – call your congress critter and let them know about this. The only thing scarier that the fact that this happened is that fact that Bush is covering it up.
