Inconvenient Details About the Afghan 17 Massacres

  Since the appearance of a March 27th article by sociology professor James Petras on numerous websites (see The Afghan 17 and the Obama Cover-up), I have been closely following the dispute between Afghan President Hamid Karzai and the Obama administration over the number of shooters in the March 11th massacre in southern Kandahar.
