"What Was My Father's Crime?" Afghan Tells Story of His Father's Killing in a US Night Raid

"What was my father's crime? And what was the danger from him? He was 92 years old." On March 21, 2010, a joint US and Afghan force, likely including US special forces, killed a 92-year-old civilian, Abdul Ghani Khan, in Wardak Province, Afghanistan. In this exclusive interview obtained by Brave New Foundation's Rethink Afghanistan campaign, the slain man's son, Zaitullah Ghiasi Wardak, relates the family's account of the night his father died. Khan's death is the latest in a string of civilian killings by US special forces in night raids. Earlier this year, special forces killed 3 women--two of them pregnant--along with two local Afghan government officials and then tried to cover it up. The US military strategy in Afghanistan is expected to rely even more heavily on special forces in the future. These incidents are moral outrages, and don't make Americans any safer.
