Lawsuit filed against Karzai, Afghan troops for the death of 30 Americans

_54451526_54451525The families of US soldiers who were killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan nearly three years back, have filed a lawsuit against president Karzai and Afghan security forces, accusing them of betraying their sons.

At least 30 Americans including 17 Navy SEALs were killed following the incident which took place on Aug 6, 2011 in Tangi valley of central Maidan Wardak province.

President Hamid Karzai was accused of corrupt practices including taking bribes from Iran for the deaths of the US service members.

Families of the three Americans have stated in their lawsuit that the helicopter was shot down by Taliban after the leaked details reached to Taliban, following the request by Afghan officials to Operation Coordination Group which approves US strike missions.

The lawsuit filed on Tuesday in US District Court in Washington, says a target was put on the unit’s back by Obama administration due to the public disclosure of many details about Osama bin Laden’s mission.

Freedom Watch and its director, Larry Klayman filed the families’ lawsuit, which seeks $600 million in damages from Afghanistan and another defendant, Iran.

Mr. Klayman quoted by Washington Times said he plan is to use the legal action as a vehicle to demand disclosures from the Defense Department about how the mission was conducted — something Congress is unwilling to do.

“We’re going to take discovery and leave no stone unturned,” Mr. Klayman told the Washington Times.

“We’re going to focus in on the Defense Department,” he said.”We’re going to use the case as an opportunity to get answers and also to get justice … We have Afghan officials in this country and we can approach them here.”

“We believe the lawsuit will show Hamid Karzai and Afghanistan were responsible for killing the sons of our clients. They gave up the coordinates and vital information about the mission. It was a payback to the Taliban, al Qaeda and Iran for the death of bin Laden.”

President Karzai’s increasingly anti-American statements and actions, including conducting secret talks with the Taliban, denigrating the U.S. war effort, refusing to approve an agreement to keep NATO forces in the county after the end of the year and moving to release captured terrorists who pose a threat to U.S. service members, were also noted in the lawsuit.

  1. They are right in their claims because they are from the mankind family and have human rights and the suffered Afghan people are growth from soil or from the family of plants thus they excluded for human rights and no values in the world, till yet no one human right seekers opened Lawsuit against American troops whose killed,s innocent and civilian Afghan,s many many times

  2. Hamid Karzai is in the bed with Taliban and Taking bribes from Iran for death of Osama Bin Ladden. Like that is any surprise!

    But releasing this information just weeks before election where it is known that Hamid Karzai is attempting to rig another election? I certainly hope Hamid Karzai has enough money in his bank account for this and all the other lawsuits which he is going to have to start paying for soon.

    Vote well Afghanistan. And Remember if EU and USA does not like a trading partner, even one as big as Russia trade is a weapon. And just because Russia has allot of oil, in fact, even more oil than Afghanistan has it’s own resources. If we don’t like you we don’t have to trade with you, educate you so you can working the modern world or anything.

    That said, many people know most Afghans are good people. But everybody knows Hamid Karzai is a very bad man who needs to start paying for his sins.

    And Hopefully the next Afghan President won’t be anything like Hamid Karzai, because if he is, everything in Afghanistan that is good today is going to unravel and only bad things will happen to Afghans from now on.

    Additionally, if Afghanistan thinks the USA is going to come back to Afghanistan after after USA is forced to make a full pull out if that is the wish of the next President. With a current crooked as HELL President at the helm, do not expect one damn dollar of support.

    Time to grow up Afghanistan.

  3. This is not good. I hear Hamid Karzai is releasing more militants from Bagram jail also. But why? Oh he gave coordinates of USA troops to the Taliban so they could shoot down our aircraft? And they wanted the same troops who killed Osama Bin Ladden? That is worse than cold!!!. I don’t think Hamid Karzai stay in Afghanistan or any country the USA can extradite him from, because I guarantee those family’s will not stop until he is in chains!

    Hamid Karzai is worst Afghan President ever demon to his people, like Yanukovych is worst Ukrainian President ever. Both will suffer the same fate for selling out their people, HELL.

    Hamid Karzai is puppet to Iran, like Yanukovych is puppet to Russia. Hamid Karzai, getting paid by Iranians to give shooting coordinates to Taliban? Bad Hamid Karzai!!!!!!! Can someone please arrest this man and put him in JAIL where he belongs?

    Please!

  4. Jamil – Please understand why USA came to Afghanistan. It was not to make war on Afghan people. In reality the leaders Afghanistan at that time, the Taliban were in power and creating safe refuge for Osama Bin Ladden. Then after our military found and eliminated our threat, as we said we would, the President of your country was seduced by Iran to provide secret information about the position of the same special military team, gave that information to the very Taliban that Mr. Hamid Karzai says he wants to make peace with.

    Jamil, long before now the world and Afghan people have known Mr. Hamid Karzai is a very evil person, bent on obtaining money and power at any cost. The families of the murdered US soldiers would not go after Mr. Karzai if they did not have proof required.

    Furthermore, it is not the USA, NATO, UN who are stating we have more rights, talking down to the Afghan people. In fact while protecting Afghans from Taliban, we have been doing our best to educate, and provide basic services to Afghan people to help them to rebuild their society.

    However people do die in wars. The USSR Soviets killed many more Afghans in their war, and only gave money to political leaders they wanted to influence. That is not our way. Our way is to live in peace with all nationalities of the world. That said, USA has every nationality in the world living inside it peacefully because of our laws that protect freedom of speech and many more rights. And in helping the Afghan people it is our goal you may rebuild your culture and put war behind you.

    But, with evil leaders like Hamid Karzai at the top, who is no better than the Taliban himself. He who conspires with Iran for money. People like Hamid Karzai, like the Taliban before him, are what holds Afghanistan back.

    Jamil, unfortunately the wold is full of bad national leaders who wish to control their people rather than allow them to be free, leaders who poison the minds of their people. Hamid Karzai is not alone. The leader of North Korea is the worst. Putin of Russia uses lies to control his people; Syrian President recently used chemical weapons to suppress uprising of people wanting freedom in that country. Iran uses payment of terrorist groups to destabilize countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria. For what? It wants to dominate the region. If USA leaves Jamil and the next Afghan President, falls victim to Iran same as Karzai did, the Afghan people will never succeed at any quest they make because their leaders will always be in the way, holding them back. Much like Putin financed the ousted President of Ukraine to hold the people of Ukraine back, The leaders of Iran are manipulating Hamid Karzai causing him to collaborate with Taliban.

    Jamil is is not the Afghan people who are the problem its Hamid Karzai who is making his people think with USA gone everything will be fine. Reality Hamid Karzai is the evil threat. But he is your problem not ours. And to prove to you that it is your job to lead your country, we are going to let you do with him as you please. Once he is not President, the next President and world may start the law suits. And that would be good as a man like Hamid Karzai without money, is a man without influence.

    1. So at first US helped Taliban grow and then realised wait a sec umm this regime is bad. With help of UN attacked Afghanistan brought Karzai to power and one decade later again realised that oops this is a bad government lets get ride of it and try something new.. is Afghanistan your expermintal lab? The whole world knows that pakistan is sponsoring terror and spreading it into the region and US is sponsoring pakistan= US is sponsoring Terror and at the same time fights against terror.. Is it a Joke?
