Afghanistan
Roads Into Panjshir Reopen, Telecom Services Resume
[ToloNews] After nearly 20 days, the roads leading into Panjshir province have been reopened and telecom services have been restored, officials of the caretaker cabinet and residents of the province confirmed.

Local residents said that electricity has yet to be reconnected in the province.

Mohammad Wasi Almas, a local journalist, said: "The telecom networks have been working since yesterday. The serious challenge is the electricity cutoff, which has not been solved,"

Some Panjshir residents said "90 percent" of locals left their homes and fled to the mountains following the festivities between the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
and the Resistance® Front forces in the past weeks, and they face serious issues.

"An economic crisis has emerged, people are struggling with economic problems," a resident said.

"From 100 percent, only 10 percent of people stayed, and the rest have left their houses," a Panjshir resident said.

Local security officials in Panjshir, however, say the situation is normal in the province. "Protecting women, children and people is our obligation. All the issues such as lack of electricity and food are lies," said Mawlawi Sana Sangin Fatih, a local security official.

In the meantime, the New York Times

... which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

has reported that Ahmad Massoud, the leader of the Resistance® Front, has hired a lobbyist in the United States to shore up support for the resistance front.

A source close to Ahmad Massoud said the aim is to discourage the United States from recognizing the Taliban. According to the New York Times, the Taliban are also looking to do the same in order to secure international funding and legitimacy.

"No worries about this issue. They will try, but cannot do anything. Invaders, the United States and its friends have been defeated here. You saw their tanks, cannons and plane remained here," said Saeed Khosti, a member of the Cultural Commission of the caretaker cabinet.

The new development comes as previously 20 members of the European Parliament--in the EU resolution draft on Afghanistan--called for Massoud to be invited to the EU Parliament and Council, but in the final version of that resolution the section was removed.

Taliban shootout in palace sidelines leader who dealt with US: Sources
BLUF: Khalil ul Rahman Haqqani vs Baradar cage match, now with added henchmen shoot outs! It’s like they’re members of the Taiwanese parliament or something,
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] The man the US and its allies hoped would be a moderate voice in Afghanistan’s Taliban
...mindless ferocity in a turban...
government has been sidelined after a dramatic shootout in the presidential palace in Kabul, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the group’s most public face who led peace talks with the US, was physically attacked by a leader of the US terrorist-designated Haqqani Network in early September during talks at the palace over forming the cabinet, the people said, asking not to be identified discussing the incident.

#10  /\ Thank you for bringing the subject up TWU.

"Civil, Well Reasoned Discourse" as stated on the front page header, is permitted and encouraged.

I am certain nearly everyone who follows this site is capable of determining what does, or does not fit this requirement. Examples of things not permitted would be a threat against someone's life, child phorn, racial bigotry, senseless argumentative behavior and name calling between viewers and posters.

Common sense and good judgement generally prevail, or it seems to have in the last two decades or so.

#12  /\ Indeed it does TWU. The JP is a valid source. Important to keep in mind here, the system is not perfect. On occasion, I have accidentally deleted articles. I do my best to recover them and re-post. Sometimes I am successful. When I am unable to re-post, I contact other MODS to assist. Generally, things can be recovered. If re-posting is impossible, I apologize and attempt to ask the poster to re-post or provide the appropriate link. Again, there is a haunting human element. AI is coming however. So there is hope.

#13  #11 - I frequently post JP articles. Sometimes there is something in the content that doesn't allow it to slip past the filter, and no matter how hard I search (I've been her near 20 years, so I know most of the offending words), I can't find the offending phrase or word. Life goes on.

#20  I spend about an hour each evening deleting multiple articles that duplicate information posted here previously or duplicating other articles on the same story — there is remarkable agreement on what is important enough to submit articles about! — and stacking as much as possible multiple articles giving additional information on the same story under one headline. Fred’s little Related search has been a big help there, significantly reducing the amount of time spent on this effort. At least a quarter to a third of my own articles get cut at this point, making me confident that I’m on the right trail with my choices.

If you want to do your own searches before submitting an article, there is a search button at the top of the list of most recent commenters in the right margin of of each page of the Burg.

Thank you all for this civil, well-reasoned, informative discussion of a topic of concern to us all.

Kabul drone strike that killed 10 was 'a mistake' -Central Command head
[Jpost] "Oops"? Remember all the "righteous strike" by Milley and breast beating by McKenzie? Resign NOW!
The Pentagon had said the Aug. 29 strike targeted an Islamic State suicide bomber who posed an imminent threat to US-led troops at the airport.

A drone strike in Kabul last month killed as many as 10 civilians, including seven children, the US military said on Friday, apologizing for what it called a "tragic mistake."

#1  Ten were killed in the attack, including Ahmadi, two adult family members, and seven children

This is still a lie from what I read when reports first started coming out a couple of weeks ago. Ahmadi handed the car keys to one of the kids when he got home to park the car for him in the drive way. He was working hard to get the story out to the world in the interview. What did they do, initially off him to shut him up since then???

#3  When the Klingon's Eagle Base shut down, the Joint Priority Effects List (JPEL) was likely shut down as well. The "mistake" is the work of amateurs within DoD and the White House attempting to exact a news grabbing revenge strike against potential suicide vest plotters.

The strike appears to be have been sanctioned without supporting JPEL intelligence, or conducted with no US or Coalition intelligence at all. The work of politically motivated, knee-jerk amateurs.

Very, very sad.

#12  Does anybody, anybody, believe that Biden gives a rat's rump who got killed? By now he's forgotten all about it. I don't believe there was any "intelligence" involved at all.

#14  This clown show has come full circle.

Back in the day, Clinton had a chance to kill bin Laden and he deferred the attack based on good intel due to imagery that showed a swing-set near the OBL target area...thus, killing no terrorists (nor, kids for that matter I guess). The tragic result - OBL lives and directs the deadly 9/11 attack that brought about the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan...fast forward over two decades...all the way to the last act...the curtain call of the Afghanistan folly...Biden approves a strike based on terrible intel that kills at least 7 innocent kids and no terrorists...

No statement from the the SecDef on this matter either that I can find. I am fairly positive that he was the approving authority on this tragedy...I hope he see the pictures of those kids...I hope Biden does too.

#16  Agency waits until Gen Frank McKenzie, Cdr, CENTCOM releases drone strike "mistake" video to issue "we told you so" virtue signaling message through their CNN disinformation arm. Things we now know:

1. USN did the, highly touted "over the horizon" shooting.
2. CIA managed Joint Priority Effects List (JPEL) tool not utilized.
3. DoD and CIA both had 'eyes on target.'
4. CIA apparently had no mission cancellation capability.
5. USN, DoD, and possibly White House disregarded CIA 'last minute, last second' warning.
6. DoD maintained 'righteous strike' media profile until General McKenzie's news release.
7. White House and POTUS continue to say nothing.
8. Former CIA Director John Brennan is now a CNN strategic analyst.

Did I mention that former CIA Director John Brennan is now a CNN strategic analyst?

#17  RE #16
A hot topic in the world of killer robots is whether you need a human in the loop to prevent accidents, rampages, and other "uncommanded excursions". I would suggest this list argues against the idea.

4. CIA apparently had no mission cancellation capability.
I use to work with a guy who seemed to know a lot about blowing stuff up. He was pretty adamant that you needed a way to make sure whatever mischief you were planning did not take place were circumstances to suddenly change.

Last thought: If your masterful public relations move ends you up in the Hague for war-crimes, you are doing the PR thing wrong.

#18  Reading Besoeker's CIA/CNN press release...

It was too late. The warning (from the CIA) on August 29 came seconds before the missile hit the car, killing 10 civilians, including seven children.

You don't suppose this is actually a prank by the CIA to get over on the Army and remove them from further influence in Afghanistan? Might make it easier to conduct business.

"Hey, Bob, wanna punk the Army? I bet we can get them to dronezap some poor hapless goat herder."
"Better yet, some guy from an NGO doing "for the children stuff."
"Excellent! We can call off the op at the last second and make the Army look like murderous incompetents."
"I can't wait to see their faces!"

Nobody has eyes on the target. No procedure or mechanism to abort. The last second warning. Why am I suspicious?

Parents across the city should keep their kids at home until the offending demon in this case is properly sacked. The district gets money from the state for average daily attendance (ADA) so a student sick out would get their attention.

India-Pakistan
Cop shot dead in south Kashmir's Kulgam
[GREATERKASHMIR] Militants rubbed out a railway cop in Wanpoh area of south Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Man stabbed, seriously wounded in Jaffa
[IsraelTimes] Police say suspect, a Paleostinian who illegally entered country, has been arrested; victim hospitalized at death's door; conflicting reports on circumstances of attack

A man was stabbed and seriously maimed in Jaffa outside Tel Aviv on Wednesday afternoon, police and medics said.

The circumstances of the assault and the identity of the victim were not immediately clear.

Police said the assailant was a Paleostinian man who had illegally entered Israel and he had been arrested. Police said the motive was apparently a terror attack and identified the victim as a resident of Jaffa.

However,
you can observe a lot just by watching...
the Magen David Adom rescue service identified the victim as a 49-year-old East Jerusalem resident.

MDA said he was taken to Wolfson Medical Center in Tel Aviv at death's door with stab wounds.

Pictures from police appeared to indicate that the man had been stabbed with a screwdriver while fishing.

Police said they were carrying out searches in the area for other suspects.

The attack comes with forces on high alert on the eve of Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, and the holiest day of the Jewish calendar.

There has been a spate of stabbing attacks in recent days, apparently in solidarity with six Paleostinian security prisoners who beat feet from Gilboa Prison last week. Two of the six are still on the run.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
US announces new sanctions on Lebanon's Hezbollah, Iran's Quds Force
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] The Biden administration, the same old faces in slightly different places, the same old ideas, the same old graft
...the collection of boodlers, grifters, hangers-on, and self-proclaimed experts affiliated with the Biden Crime Family. Entrusted with an entire nation as the result of a suspicious election, they set about happily implementing stuff they absorbed in college, all of which blew up and splattered the rest of us...
Friday announced new sanctions on Leb
...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers, a practice dating back to the heady human sacrifice days of Baal Moloch. In 2020 Hezbollahblew up a considerable portion of Beirut and many of its inhabitants when its ammonium nitrate faci8lity exploded. They blamed it on... somebody else. It wasn't them though. Trust them on that...
’s Iran-backed Hezbollah, with the top US diplomat calling on governments around the world to clamp down on the terrorist group.

"Hezbollah is increasingly looking for additional sources of revenue to bolster its coffers. We call on governments around the world to take steps to ensure Hezbollah and other terrorist groups do not exploit their territory and financial institutions," Secretary of State Antony Blinken said.

An announcement from the Treasury Department said four individuals were being designated due to their ties to Hezbollah.

The sanctioned Hezbollah supporters were part of a Lebanon and Kuwait-based funding ring working to support Hezbollah and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps - Quds Force (IRGC-QF).

The networks have allegedly laundered tens of millions of dollars to benefit Hezbollah and the Quds Force.

"Hezbollah, with the support of the IRGC-QF, uses the revenues generated by these networks to fund terrorist activities, as well as to perpetuate instability in Lebanon and throughout the region," the Treasury Department said.
