Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with John Sifton, Asia Advocacy Director at Human Rights Watch.

Human Rights Watch has released a major new report exposing atrocities in Afghanistan at the hands of US CIA backed forces. The report, titled, “They’ve Shot Many Like This’: Abusive Night Raids by CIA-Backed Afghan Strike Forces,” details how,

“These troops include Afghan strike forces who have been responsible for extrajudicial executions and enforced disappearances, indiscriminate airstrikes, attacks on medical facilities, and other violations of international humanitarian law, or the laws of war.”

The organization said, “The US should work with the Afghan government to immediately disband and disarm all paramilitary forces that operate outside the ordinary military chain of command and cooperate with independent investigations of all allegations of war crimes and other human rights abuses.”
