47. here you go

I tend to believe the article above, not only because the video looks fake to me (it seems a very gentle flogging relative to the huge amount of screaming) but because it makes no sense for them to deny it if it's real. Not a very effective deterrent that way.

Remember the widely peddled story about babies being chucked out of incubators prior to the first gulf war? Same type deal.

I'm not denying the Taliban is a repressive regime. I just don't believe our gov't gives two shits about human rights abuses, except when it makes a convenient propaganda tool for selling us on more war. Hell, they don't even care about human rights abuses here in the States.
