According to sources inside the office of the governor of Afghanistan’s Laghman Province, NATO forces launched an air strike on what they claimed were Taliban warriors last night near the town of Mehtar Lam.
When the helicopters finished firing, 200 were dead. Not Taliban. Not even civilians. 200 sheep. Apparently at a time when the ability of NATO forces to determine the difference between civilians and combatants is in doubt, they decided to underscore their inability to tell the difference between fierce Taliban warriors and a flock of hundreds of sheep roaming the countryside.
