  • ‘Probably the largest’ al-Qaeda training camp ever destroyed in Afghanistan

    A multi-day operation in southern Afghanistan this month that involved 200 Special Operations forces and scores of American airstrikes targeted what was “probably the largest” al-Qaeda training camp found in the 14-year Afghan war, the senior U.S. commander in Afghanistan said on Friday.

    Army Gen. John F. Campbell, the four-star officer in charge of the U.S. war effort, said the camp was used by AQIS, an acronym for al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent.

          Hopefully, they were able to prevent the survivors from escaping the airstrikes.

            I hope they had a "No prisoners" policy.

            Well, not all of them, mind you. Still need some live ones for intel gathering, lulz.

              thats what makes us different from them,

              once you abandon the High Moral Ground your cause is lost.

                I hear you, it's just that it's always frustrating to have tp "respect" ennemies that will never show you the same respect in return...

                    Rules of War and such didn't stop the CIA from torturing folk they had captured though.

                      Re torture, the CIA was given the green light by the government and CinC.

                        The C.I.A. is not a military formation, so your trolling attempt failed.

                          Not to nitpick or anything, but laws are always subject to different interpretations. Dutch special forces working alongside US special forces during Enduring Freedom (JSO area Windmill) were severely restricted by Dutch politicians who didn't like the US conduct surrounding 'unlawful combatants' and wanted to prevent 'American practices' among Dutch troops. I belief several other European nations had similar problems when deploying their special forces alongside their American counterparts.
