Evidence shows Taliban killed some civilians: US military

Investigators have found evidence that Taliban fighters caused civilian casualties in a major battle in which US air strikes are alleged to have killed scores of villagers, the US military said Saturday.
President Hamid Karzai has said that up to 130 civilians, including children and the elderly, were killed in the bombing raids overnight Monday-Tuesday in the western province of Farah.
An investigation by US and Afghan security found Saturday that "a number" of civilians were killed but it was not clear how. The investigation also found evidence "of non-combatant casualties caused by Taliban fighters? actions," a US military statement said late Saturday.
Are we now at a point where we will be posting how many were killed by "the others?" Does this, in some insane way, justify our actions? Does it absolve us?

Time to get out!
