Binocular Snapshot for 12/26/2010

LastDayWatchers here are some results to winning the hearts & minds campaign during God curse of the Bush/Obama Administrations

"The international Special Forces military team that targeted a Kabul office complex on Christmas Eve day thought they were thwarting a holiday season plot to bomb the U.S. Embassy"

But the pre-dawn raid that left two security guards dead found no explosives, no plot and no evidence that the building’s occupants — an Afghan armored car firm that has been working with the U.S. military for nearly a decade — were scheming to attack American diplomats"

Instead, the operation brought the issue of night raids directly into the Afghan capital as the country’s Interior Ministry Sunday accused U.S-led forces of flouting the law and company officials challenged NATO’s version of events.

“I asked them ‘What do we tell the families?’” Nawid Shah Sakhizada, vice president of Tiger International, the Afghan company at the center of the questionable raid, told McClatchy Newspapers on Sunday.

“I told them ‘you did not kill two cows. You killed two human beings,’” said Sakhizada, who was in the office during the confrontation. “We have to answer to the families.”

Sakhizada said the soldiers apologized after finding nothing and cautioned the company not to speak to reporters. But company officials refused to remain quiet.

“Saying sorry is not so easy,” said Mohammed Faird Wafah, a friend of Sakhizada family who came to visit the office on Sunday. “Afghan blood is not so cheap. When something like this happens in the center of Kabul, what do you think happens in the more remote provinces?”

Tiger International is part of a larger Afghan company that has more than $10 million in contracts with the U.S. military, said company president Shah Agha Sakhizada"

"The quarrel highlighted long-standing disagreements between the Afghan government and the U.S. military, which makes up the majority of the foreign force, over the use of night raids. Afghan officials say such raids often result in accidental civilian deaths."

The incident also underscored jurisdictional disputes that are likely to arise as Western troops begin handing over security responsibilities to the Afghan police and army. NATO plans call for Afghan forces to take the lead in safeguarding the country by 2014, paving the way for the departure of most Western troops, who now number about 150,000."
