Afghanistan: Justice for War Criminals Essential to Peace, (Karzai Must Hold Officials Accountable for Past Crimes)

Afghanistan: Justice for War Criminals Essential to Peace: For the past five years, the Afghan government, the United Nations and the international community, led by the United States, have pursued a counter-productive policy of relying on war criminals, human rights abusers, and drug-traffickers instead of prosecuting them, Human Rights Watch said. Karzai mistakenly tried to bring all political forces under his umbrella, while the US worked with many such individuals as part of its “war on terror.” As documented by Human Rights Watch in its 2005 report, " Blood-Stained Hands: Past Atrocities in Kabul and Afghanistan’s Legacy of Impunity, Report, July 7, 2005 " -- "A Mapping of Human Rights Violations in Afghanistan from 1979-2001 by OHCHR Report"
