Two Afghan Vice Presidents Accused of Atrocities (US has 2 Presidents accused too!)

My first thought was that evil people always seem to gravitate toward Governnment and positions of power. My 2nd thought was...wait a minute we have this beat. W and Obama are PRESIDENTS who have been acused of war crimes...

ARTICLE:
Senior officials in the Afghanistan government have been named in a special human rights report detailing atrocities that took place during the 1980s and 1990s.

Compiled over six years, “Conflict Mapping in Afghanistan Since 1978” accuses 500 Afghans of mass killings. Among those accused are two men who have served as vice president to President Hamid Karzai.

The government’s first vice president, Marshal Muhammad Qasim Fahim, reportedly told Karzai to fire Ahmad Nader Nadery, the man in charge of the report. In fact, Fahim was quoted as saying that dismissing Nadery was too good for him. “We should just shoot 30 holes in his face,” Fahim said, according to The New York Times.
