Shoot first....

One of the victims of a shooting by US military forces in Afghanistan had this to say about the recent incident when this individual, and five others, were wounded:
"We were on our way back home from the clinic. The American patrol was driving and as they stopped, we stopped. They started driving, we did the same.

As we got close to our house they stopped, and we started driving towards our house. They opened fire on us. Minutes later a translator came to us and asked who we were."

Such is the rigorous world of identity verification in the US armed forces, where AFTER wounding six civilians - including a newborn baby, and a woman who was left with gunshot wounds in her mouth - the crack squad of heroic liberators decided to actually find out at whom they were so valiantly shooting.
