Canadian Forces cleared in killing of Afghan teen

Interpreter claimed 17-year-old was unarmed when shot


 

The independent Canadian Forces National Investigation Service has cleared Canadian soldiers of any wrongdoing in the shooting death of a 17-year-old Afghan. Ahmadshah Malgari, a Canadian-Afghan interpreter testified last April that he read an intelligence report which said an unarmed Afghan teen was shot in the back and that Canadian soldiers “panicked” and rounded up 10 innocent villagers before planting a weapon on the teen. The CFNIS found no evidence Canadian troops acted inappropriately.

  1. Some dreams can be pretty realistic.

    But Malgari will be able to sleep nights knowing that he didn't read nothing about back-shooting teen-agers, panicking or 'planting' anything but the seeds of peace.

    Nobody with an eye on their career would have written an intelligence report like that. Or remembered writing it. Would they?
