Khan was serving as an artillery commander in the Afghan National Army away from his home in the eastern province of Khost on April 8, when U.S. forces came knocking. In a case of "wrong house," they killed his 17-year-old daughter, Nadia, and his 15-year-old son, Aimal. They also killed his wife, a schoolteacher who taught villagers for free. They killed his brother and wounded another daughter.
After she thought the dust had cleared, Khan’s cousin’s wife walked outside. She was nine-months pregnant. She took five shots to the stomach. Her fetus died, but she lived. She might have some thoughts on Obama as a man who "created a new climate," as the Nobel committee claimed.
The more innocent people the US and NATO kill and maim, the more the rest of Afghanistan is going to be solidly behind the Taliban.
And we seem to be doing a spectacularly marvelous job of killing innocents in Afghanistan, an outcome of occupation which appears to be escalating under Obama's watch.
The awarding of this year's Nobel Peace Prize to Obama was an obscene mockery of its original purpose and intention, and can never be taken seriously again by any thinking human being.
