Another Source of “Civilian Casualties”

Compare the Taliban’s code of conduct (PDF):

Provincial, districts’ leaders and rest of Mujahideen are bound to take best possible steps to ensure safety and security of the civilian‘s life and property. In case of violation Punishment will be granted to the offender.

with the Taliban’s deeds, courtesy of the BBC:

Marines had mortared two men believed to be setting an IED in an area not far away. A villager later presented two dead children at their base, claiming they had been killed by American fire.

But the children, according to those who had seen them or photographs of them, had been shot. The marines said they had information that a local Taliban commander had ordered it, just so that the Americans would be blamed.

More hypocrisy, as I find it.
