Convoy of death in Afganistan

A documentary called "Convoy of Death" documents a little known recent massive attrocity in Afghanistan:

"Thousands of Afghan prisoners were killed while travelling in sealed containers on their way from Konduz to a prison at Sheberghan. The bodies of the dead and some who survived were then buried in a mass grave at nearby Dasht Leile. US special forces were closely involved and in charge at the time. Were they involved in a war crime? The Pentagon denies the events. The eyewitnesses tell what happened."

Clips from the documentary can be viewed at []

Two eyewitnesses that contributed to the movie were later kidnapped and killed, others detained and tortured.

The shocking story was investigated and confirmed by Newsweek (see [] for a reproduction of the article), but no official inquiry ever took place.

The Irish guy who made the movie, Jamie Doran, was recently interviewed at []. He states: "Afghanistan is in a bigger mess just now than it ever was before the war."

That looks really interesting.

I'm working on a new site right now (a dynamic site containing timelines such as this, however whereby anyone can add information). Once thats up and running I'd like to have a look into this and add a bit more on the post-war Afghanistan situation.
