Islamic Emirate guest blog
“Since the inception of America’s occupation of Afghanistan, the Islamic Emirate has provided information to the international community regarding America’s barbarities and inhumane treatment of the Afghan populace. At the time, no nation dared listen to our nation’s pleas or show even slight response for fear of estranging America.
Now after 14 years of such barbarities, the US Senate itself has lifted the curtain off of America’s intelligence arm, the CIA, and revealed the extent of their tortuous treatment of unarmed prisoners. In reality the practices of CIA mentioned in this report are only a fraction of those committed by this agency throughout America’s occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq.
It is hoped that the full Senate report, consisting of some 6,000 pages and fully detailing these crimes, is released to the public for passing judgment. It is hoped that the full report will provide a clearer picture of the extent of these crimes.
The Islamic Emirate also fully condemns the intelligence policies initiated under the regime of George Bush and been carried out to this day. We consider this publicly admitted document outlining the America’s human rights violations as a clear mirror of their policies throughout the past so decades. Unfortunately America’s intelligence violations continue unabated to this day. Even today America and its intelligence arms continue to operate black prisons throughout their main centers in Afghanistan. These operatives continue to violate the basic rights of ordinary citizens, they carry out night raids on civilian homes, women and children are regularly held without charges, subject them to degrading treatment, carry out indiscriminate bombings, and subject ordinary Afghans to all forms of inhumane treatment.
America’s policies are not limited to the above. In addition they have planted chosen individuals inside Afghanistan’s intelligence agencies as well as the local police and warlords and use these individuals to commit unspoken barbarities including kidnappings, rape and torture. These crimes are committed throughout Afghanistan especially Kandahar where they have been witnesses by hundreds of eye witnesses. Similarly American installed officials in Kabul regime arrest hundreds of innocent civilians and subject them to tortuous conditions to extract confessions.
We call on the international community as well as those international organizations that call themselves champions of human rights, to examine America’s ongoing policy in light of these human rights standards. These human rights abuses, especially violations of international humanitarian laws, continue to be committed by American installed agents in the Kabul regime. If these human rights organizations fail to stop these abuses and then several years later claim to reveal such abuses, it is a sign of their failure and incompetent. Their failure to address such blatant violations implies that these organizations are concerned less with addressing human rights violations and more with promoting hidden agendas.”
