Rogue SAS unit accused of executing civilians in Afghanistan

With the BBC as reporter, judge, and jury, that's a foregone conclusion.

All they need is Piers Morgan and its a wrap.
Careful @Stacker will get upset. He is like a woman permanently on the rag

It's in the Guardian as well:


I liked this bit:

An SAS sergeant-major described the episode as “the latest massacre!” in an email sent the following morning, after the mission report was filed. “I’ve heard a couple of rumours,” the junior officer added, according to documents first revealed by BBC Panorama and the Sunday Times.

I liked this bit from the Sunday Mail:

"When a computer link to the mission report was circulated earlier that morning, one SAS troop sergeant-major inquired by email at 6.56am: 'Is this about . . . latest massacre! I've heard a couple of rumours."

WTF is a 'Troop Sergeant Major'?

The Mail also says that the brother of the Afghan bringing the case was suspected as being part of a gang laying roadside bombs in the area, which was the reason for the raid. This seems to have been omitted from previous BBC and Times reports, although I have not watched the original Panaroma doco. In fact I haven't watched Panaroma for decades- probably sometime last century- bunch of lefty twots.

Another thing - there’s some odd rules of warfare. You can (and really should) shoot descending paratroopers. But you can’t shoot parachute-descending downed aircrew. You can’t randomly shoot enemy combatants, but you can target fast jet aircrew or senior officers and assassinate them. You can’t use chlorine gas against dug-in troops, but you can subject them to artillery barrage, strafing from aircraft, carpet bombing from aircraft and mortar or tank fire.
In these circumstances targets will continue to fall when hit.
