This week in 2009, Seal Team 6 & CIA forces conducted a night raid in Afghanistan, dragging school children from their beds, handcuffing them & executing them w/ shots to the head. Other children were shot in their sleep. In total, 8 children were killed & 2 adults civilians.
A 12 year-old Shepard boy, Abdul Khaliq was gunned down when he ran out of his house during the raid. A local elder, Jan Mohammed, said that three boys were killed in one room and five were handcuffed before they were shot. "I saw their school books covered in blood," he said.
following the massacre, US forces took pictures of the dead bodies.
The night raid, which took place in Kunar province, was part of the Omega Program, were Seal Team 6 regularly committed atrocities against civilians.…
Afghan investigators determined that most of the victims were aged between 12 and 14 years and were enrolled in local schools. Yet, NATO forces lied about the incident by claiming those killed were members of the Taliban who had weapons with them.
Following the massacre, protests erupted in Afghanistan. In Jalalabad, the capital of Nangarhar province, around 200 university students rallied in the streets, demanding the American forces responsible be brought to justice.
In Kabul, protesters gathered to chant, “Obama! Obama! Take your soldiers out of Afghanistan!”,while wearing blue headbands with the words: “Stop killing us!” Others held placards with pictures of dead children killed by NATO troops.
