Afghan lawmaker says airstrikes kill 21 civilians
Were they hanging out with bad guys?
[DAWN] An Afghan politician says Arclight airstrikes in the southern Helmand
...an Afghan province populated mostly by Pashtuns, adjacent to Injun country in Pak Balochistan...
province have killed 21 civilians, including women and kiddies.

Mohammad Hashim Alkozai, a senator from Helmand, on Sunday said that 13 non-combatants were killed in one strike and eight in another. Both airstrikes were carried out late on Friday in the Sangin district, where heavy fighting is underway between NATO
...the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. It's headquartered in Belgium. That sez it all....
-backed Afghan forces and the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
Alkozai says at least five other people were maimed in the airstrikes.

Omer Zwak, the provincial governor's front man, said turbans fired on Afghan forces from a civilian area.
Right — human shields. That’s the fault of those who hide behind them.
