"Afghan Massacre: The Convoy of Death"
"Did U.S. Forces Allow a Massacre of 3,000 Taliban Prisoners to Occur?" BuzzFlash asks Jamie Doran, Producer-Director of "Afghan Massacre: The Convoy of Death"

A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

This riveting documentary charges that American forces were present at and permitted the massacre of approximately 3,000 Taliban prisoners. Although it has been shown in Europe, "Afghan Massacre: The Convoy of Death" has received virtual little distribution or air time in the United States.

"Afghan Massacre" tells of how American Special Forces took control of the operation, re-directed the containers carrying the living and dead into the desert and stood by as survivors were shot and buried.

And it details how the Pentagon lied to the world in order to cover up its role in the greatest atrocity of the entire Afghan War. This is the documentary they did not want you to see.

"'Afghan Massacre' was produced over ten months in extremely dangerous circumstances: eyewitnesses were threatened and subsequently killed, the film crew were forced into hiding and our researcher was savagely beaten to within an inch of his life. He was recently awarded the 2002 Rory Peck Award for Hard News, The SONY Award and the film has been nominated for a Royal Television Society Award for Current Affairs."

BuzzFlash didn't want this grim, compelling documentary to become lost in the tidal wave of Bush Administration lies and deception. Worthy of note is also a bizarre interview with Richard Perle who feigns shock at the notion that such a war crime could have occurred, even though Rumsfeld was running around at the time proclaiming that he didn't care how we got rid of the Taliban.

A clip from the documentary can be seen at:

I take it you didn't watch the clip or read the Buzzflash interview before responding. Why waste my time?

I also saw the prison video made by Robert Young Pelton where he discovers John Walker Lindh just before the prison break. If the creator of this documentary is the same guy I think he is... doesn't he have issues with Pelton's coziness with General Dostom... I am sure I read about some exchange between the two of them.

As for the Special Forces being responsible for the massacre. If they were in control, then they were responsible.
