Taliban Poison 89 More School Afghan Girls

From the (ever so careful to not libel the Taliban) Associated Press:

89 Afghan girls sick in alleged school poisoning


MUHMUD RAQI, Afghanistan (AP) — Officials and doctors say 89 Afghan schoolgirls have been hospitalized in the third case of alleged gas poisoning in eastern Afghanistan in less than three weeks.

Dr. Aziz Agha says scores of students have been admitted with symptoms such as headaches, vomiting and shivering. Afgha is treating the girls in Kapisa province.

Interior Ministry Spokesman Zemeri Bashary says the girls were sent to the hospital after they arrived at school Tuesday to a strange smell in the yard. He says 89 schoolgirls were among the 94 patients. Three teachers and two guards are also sick.

The incident follows two cases of alleged gas poisoning — the most recent on Monday — at girls’ schools in neighboring Parwan province.

Oh, yes. The AP is so careful to say that this third report is also ‘alleged.’

They don’t want to impugn their allies needlessly.

    And I awake this morning to NPR reporting that they’ve used gas on another school poisoning another 89 girls.

    I don’t like the Taliban! Does this make me a racist? Am I anti-american? Or do I just not like mean people? I guess we will never know!

    Are you sure Mr. Hillary Clinton doesn’t want to “RUSH” over and apologize for the U.S. Marines doing this? How about our very own, “Boy” Blunder? I am quite sure these two are not done licking up to the Taliban and apologizing for the sun rising in the East. Why does the AP even bother to tell the news? It is waaaaay beyond their metal to tell it how it happened.

    And remember….these are the folks that “I am a feminist” Obama / Biden want us to believe are only “5% incorrigible.”

    Frankly I don’t think buying off the other 95% will reduce the insanity of the stone age Islamic mindset.

    I’ll bet those girls spoke out against gay marriage.

    Where is Perez Hilton?

    This is what Joe Wilson calls not evidence for weapons of mass destruction.

  7. Right of the People says:

    With our fearless leader isn’t it weapons of mass obstruction?

    Obama in Abominacity talks of avian flu and such as possibly spread by terrorists and how important the WHO (who immediatly gave Mexico 25 million with 175 million in the future) was important to help contain these type of attacks. Yet, America did nothing to try and keep it from America. But, then Obama critizes America for taking the Indians and Mexican’s land. Lincoln did the right thing keeping the union. Jefferson is responsible for the Freedom of Religion as he was not a Christian but believed in God, to counter-act Patrick Henry and others who established American under Christian beliefs. Well, it so happens that Patrick Henry’s Christianity belief which is against slavery, was against slavery, more than Jefferson and Lincoln. Lincoln was a Christian, but keeping the union was a more important issue that slavery. So, this explains Obama’s lack of border control as Mexicans have a right before America. He is extremely obsessed with the past, holding an extreme grudge against white’s and America. While he repeatedly talks of his Trinity church helping sex offenders in Dreams, it switches to prisoners. So, while he has strived to allow sex offenders, gangster’s and black criminals second chances, he holds present whites accountable for things in the past, that the present did not do.
