Makeshift Taliban prison found

Security forces in southern Afghanistan found 27 shackled Afghan men in a makeshift Taliban prison compound, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said on Wednesday.

The force said the men appeared to be tortured and were taken to a base for a medical screening and debriefing. Officials were trying to determine the men's identities, the force said.

Tips and intelligence led to the discovery of the compound on Tuesday near Musa Qaleh in Helmand province.

When troops approached the compound, insurgents fired on them, the force said.

In the ensuing gun battle, 13 insurgents were killed when they did not comply with orders to lay down their weapons, the force said.

    So all because he liked little boys he is gay? I that the way all you rednecks think? Do you like your father? Does that mean your gay? Jesus is God. Humans are his children, his family. He has a right to send us his holy teachings without you people calling it "uncivilized!" Hypocrite! Fool! Did you know communists were atheist? Well, each time people like you hear about communist you call them a lot of barbarians! And you yourself are an atheist! Heh? Whatcha gonna say to that?

    If there're still unsecured provinces in Afghanistan, I say we just nuke them and watch as the radiation evolves them into far more peaceful mutants. The worst thing that could happen is the start of a new Super Mutant Taliban race, but I say the odds are in favor of a more peaceful Ghoul race, which we can co-exist with.

    Dear kind humanity,
    you know Taliban is not a group, but they are a ethnic group which is related to Karzais ethnic so that Karzai is making excuses to survive them otherwise if the bave strong and stable policy to remove and killing the Taliban that is so easy to remove and kill them in one month all of them , in both sides of border of Afghanistan and Pakistan, but due to Karzai, that passing time the internatioanl forces do not kill and remove them at all.

    you know Karzai declared to the Afghan national Army that up 5 RPG rockets if the Taliban open fire on you, you are not allow to response them, its is mean Karzai want to kill the Afghan soldiers by Taliban, and on other way Karzai removed the name criminal and barbarain Taliban from the black list and then released them, they were the commanders of Taliban about 50 people, when Karzai released them they joined back Taliban and now they are fighting against governement,
    We Afghan do not know why usa and other international forces are supporting Karzai and Taliban through him.
    They should move down him from the office, there is many good and femouse people and politician in Afghanistan that people like them like Dr Abdullah, who was battling gainst Taliban and he is the very opposite of Taliban.

    Actually, Brian, the bible is a mixture of history and mythology. Archeology actually supports most of the bible as far as places, people, and most events are concerned. Even the location of Eden as described in the bible fits a location that is now underwater in the Persian Gulf. It was dry land about 10,000 years ago. Adam and Eve, however, are allegorical references to the awakening of mankind’s civilization.

    Those shackled prisoners are nothing more then Taliban looking to get information on what the US forces are looking for and what they want to know. By the questions they ask, the Taliban will be able to change their tactics. That's what I would do if I knew the US Forces were not going to do anything else except let them go after questioning.

    Ya know, I heard a story once about a man whose neighbor beat his wife and children mercilessly. He would drag them outside and tie them up and beat them and yell at them and threaten anyone who would dare to try and dissuade him from these assaults. So everybody would stay in their own yards or cower in their homes and peek through the blinds to make sure he wasn't coming over to their house to mess anything up, all the while the wife and kids were screaming and pleading for help from anyone who would listen. How long do you sit in your house and ignore the pleas and cries? When do you take action? When the nieghbor finally kills his family, or when he decides to come over to your house and start abusing your family? Where is our moral responsibility? While I don't believe that the duty to be the world's police force falls entirely to the US, the UN is so castrated that no one takes it seriously. What do you do?

        You are so right. I wish I could do something about it. But they aren't as close as my neighbor is. So many complain about this great country of ours, and I know we have problems, but really, in any other middle eastern country, or asian country, or African country, dissenters would be shot (or tortured and then shot). It still never ceases to amaze me how so many hate our country, but love the prosperity it brings to them. They can try to kill us, silence us and break us, but they gladly take our oil money, sell us military equipment and complain when we don't give as much disaster assistance as they think is warranted. Amazing.

      Isolationism is a failed policy. It didn't work in 1917 or in 1941, and it surely won't work today with the globalization of our economies and cultures a done deal.
      Remember if you will that we were leaving Afghanistan alone (after, of course, meddling horribly in the 1980s) when Al Quaeda, operating from bases in Afghanistan, attacked us on 9/11. We cannot allow the Taliban to retake control of the country and make it a safe base for our enemies again.
      Sure, Al Quaeda will just set up shop somewhere else that's isolated and sympathetic, like Somalia, but it is worth it to keep fighting our enemies (and they are indeed our enemies, make no mistake – declared war on us and everything) on foreign soil rather than allowing them to regain a measure of safety from which to act.

      You should go over there, too. I'm sure you'd have fun. Maybe get disabled for life so you can't put your ignorant BS on the internet, that kind of thing.

        Maybe you should go over there, watch your friends die, seen innocent civilians killed or tortured then come back to the states and read comments from people like you.

      Everything is a conspiracy. 9/11 never happened. We never went into Afghanistan. It's just an excuse to spend money.

        Actually...

        If you guys ever watch ZEITGEIST is a movie depicting the history of America (as far as politics and war goes) as a fraud. Some actually believe, based off of credible research and assumptions, that the governments around the world plan these "Wars" and "disasters" out as a way to manipulate their country's citizens and as a way to prosper and make money.

        Im not saying i agree with it, i am saying you guys should maybe watch it one day and see wha tyou think.

        Yeah, but W lied to us for our own good. he really took a un-liking to "Sad-Ham", (as he pronounced it) Hussein on account of he threatened to kill his daddy (HW). And anyone knows that family is first and his pa was at one time our commande(e)r-in chief, so's we gotta jump in with both feet and give her 110%. to protect our liberties and freedoms and inalienable rights and protect us from the scandinavian-style socialism afoot. I've worked real hard keeping myself pure from reading and learning information. The only info I need comes from Rush as he has a think tank so's I don't need to do that think thing either. I'm whats you call an ideologue which means no matter what comes across from the media, I will always root agin the sissy liberal left wingers, Facs dont mean squat.

      Bledsoe do you drink and do drugs. You seem high or stupid. Get with the real world man. If you don't want enemy paratroopers dropping in your back yard some day;you need to shut up. My Uncle died at 21 years old to keep you safe. He said he would rather fight enemies on foreign land than in his mothers yard. Think about that pal.

        Your uncle died not only to keep our country safe, but to allow Bledsoe the freedom to do and say what he wants. I sure didn't serve 4 years in the Army infantry just so I could come back to a country that was restricting my freedoms.

      Really? so you think the gov't that 'supported' bin laden shouldn't be gone after? and im not going to really even comment on how horrible the Taliban are to there 'own' ppl. I mean, that alone, in my opinion, is enough cause to take them out. I actually really do want to know why you believe Afghanistan is not worth the time.

      Wow. Impressive video that shows it the way it is. I've spent 14 years in the military as EOD. I've seen the bodies of my fellow men and women who have given their lives trying to provide security for both the people of Iraq and Afghanistan and those left behind here in the US, and it's frustrating to see and hear most people forget why this war began and why we're fighting it.
