'U.S. Backed Kidnapping, Torture and Murder in Afghanistan'

"America's monster" Abdul Raziq was trained, armed, even celebrated, by the United States and its allies. American military leaders waged a war outside international law. Reporters Azam Ahmed and Matthieu Aikins spent more than a year investigating abuses by American-sponsored forces in Afghanistan: "The culture of lawlessness and impunity flew in the face of endless promises by American presidents, generals and ambassadors to uphold human rights and build a better Afghanistan." 

It was a mistake to "keep a really bad criminal because he was helpful in fighting worse criminals," reflects Gen. John R. Allen, below. Photo by Bryan Denton:
