    So will you admit that atrocities have been committed that would not have come to light had it not been for the leak?
    1. I never said war crimes have never been committed.
    2. No war crimes have been brought to light from the leaks.

    Air strike. US Inquiry later found many more civilian casualties. Red X say 'dozens'
    Doesn't the usage of "Red X" prove that names have been removed? (Or that they were not there in the first place).
    Red X seems to suggest that is someone aligned with what ever the "red" side is (Its listed somewhere on the Guardian site)

    because I think you'll find that assault does not mean what you think it means
    Violently attacking someone? I think I used it correctly.

    oops missed this post

    If there is no evidence, there is nothing there to prove he committed the murder. It's very simple.
    So you are saying if an event happens yet there is no evidence (AT THE TIME) then in your eyes the event did not take place?

    Technically yes, that is how it is seen. Regardless of what you believe, statements of what happen can not be confirmed without evidence. No evidence means there is nothing there that proves an event ever took place or connects someone to that event (murder).

    Edited:

    Here, one example to start off with:

    031542ZAUG09, OCC-P KDZ REPORTED 2X FUEL TRUCKS WERE STOLEN BY UNK NUMBER OF INS. INS INTENDED TO CROSS KDZ RIVER AT A FORD TO BRING THE FUEL TO CHAHAR DARREH DISTRICT. AT 1730Z, PRT KDZ JTAC OBSERVED KDZ RIVER AND REPORTED THAT IT DISCOVERED THE TRUCKS AS WELL AS UP TO 70X INS AT 42SVF8903852017, ON THE FORD ON THE RIVER. THE TRUCKS WERE STUCK IN THE MUD. COM PERT KDZ LINKED UP WITH JTAC AND, AFTER ENSURING THAT NO CIVILIANS WERE IN THE VICINITY, COM PRT KDZ AUTHORIZED AN AIRSTRIKE. AT 2119Z, AN F-15 DROPPED 2X GBU 38 BOMBS. AT 2158Z, BDA CONDUCTED BY F-15/ROVER WAS THAT 56X INS KIA (CONFIRMED) AND 14X INS FLEEING IN NE DIRECTION. THE 2X FUEL TRUCKS WERE ALSO DESTROYED.
    Airstike to destroy fuel trucks and smugglers kills 56 confirmed civilians.

    I don't quite get this one, how can they have confirmed that no civilians were in the vicinity yet kill 56? Unless that was one hell of an unexpected fireball (they were bombing fuel trucks after all).

    UPDATE 041120D*
    At 0900 hrs International Media reported that US airstrike had killed 60 civilians in Kunduz. The media are reporting that Taliban did steal the trucks and had invited civilians in the area to take fuel.
    ISAF HQ commenced CIVCAS procedures and conducted a brief over VTC with COMD RC-N.
    Mitigation proceudres have commenced and liaison with GIRoA officials in KABUL and in KUNDUZ are a priority.
    The Governor of KUNDUZ is commenting that most of the casualties were Taliban.
    RC-N and PRT KDZ are gathering more facts.

    As Jsm stated, the 56 killed were NFI. The quote only says that the media reported civilians killed when there was nothing to support it. It just shows that the media jumped to a conclusion before anything was proven. No war crime in that one.
