If the court please:
The indiscriminate bombing of civilians in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan by the United States during the period from 28 June to ?? July 2005 should be not confused with the massive “rastrellamento” the German SS conducted of the mountainous region around Marzabotta, Italy from 29 Sept to 1 Oct 1944 which killed thousands of civilians. They were Nazi's. We aren't.
Besides, I have not now, nor ever been a member of the Neoconservative Party. I was opposed to the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Colombia. Alas, any sign of protest on my part would have been greeted with indignation by my neighbors. In any event, I was just following orders.
