Torture and Cover-ups: Obama's New Man in Afghanistan

American "close air support" killed 95 children in Afghanistan last week, and when Karzai's demand that bombing cease was brushed off as usual by Obama's National Security Advisor ("We can't fight with one hand tied behind our back"), the Afghan House of Representatives (Wolesi Jirga) issued an ultimatum: Within one week all American forces in Afghanistan will be subject to Afghan law.

This is one jump away from throwing us out of the country, or at least trying, and not even Obama and David Axelrod can sell an occupation that's even at war with its own puppet government!

So noise had to be made, and what's the cheapest dog-and-pony show that will save our puppet Karzai and shut up the Wolesi Jirga?
