- Shortly after the Taliban claimed responsibility for shooting some ISAF soldiers in Helmand province (ISAF says they’re investigating an incident there, one account suggests it may have been an accident, while the Taliban claims – the statement on their Voice of Jihad (VOJ) page here, and a copy at a non-terrorist page here – an Afghan soldier killed three foreign troops and defected to the Taliban), the bad guys are claiming they did the same thing to some Canadians (VOJ version here, copy at non-terrorist page here): “Reports from Shah Wali Kot district say that Wali Muhammad Aka, a 75 year old Mujahid and a resident of this districts Kajoor village opened fire with a Kalashnikov on Canadian invaders who were sitting around in the village yesterday at 12:00 pm and as a result 6 Canadian terrorists which includes a female invader were instantly killed before the brave Mujahid was Martyred (we ask Allah to grant him the highest ranks in Paradise) ….” As of this posting, there’s been NO mainstream media confirmation of the incident alleged by the Taliban’s web page report (it’s been carried by a Pakistani paper online, but the paper routinely cuts and pastes Taliban claims straight from VOJ, even giving a by-line to the appropriate Taliban spokespersons, as it does in this case).
