NBC Helps Taliban Commander Promote His Bashing Of U.S. Military

Behind some of the most deadly attacks against U.S. troops is one man: a 35-year-old Afghan who calls himself 'Commander Ismail'

WASHINGTON - Four years after the U.S. invaded Afghanistan, Taliban and al Qaeda fighters are showing renewed strength, using suicide bombs and rocket-propelled grenades. They are even training the next generation.

Since June 2005, 54 Americans have been killed in Afghanistan, by far the most lethal period since the U.S. invaded.

Behind some of the most deadly attacks is one man, a 35-year-old Afghan who calls himself “Commander Ismail.”

In his first interviews with Western media, Ismail brags about killing three Navy Seals this summer, then downing a Chinook helicopter that came to rescue them, killing another 16 Americans.

Commander Ismail says ousted Taliban leader Mullah Omar is alive and well and that the Mujahaddin are fighting under his command and control.

NBC News interviewed Ismail in August and again this month.

Ismail boasts that in June, he deliberately laid a trap for American forces.

Ismail: We certainly know that when the American army comes under pressure and they get hit, they will try to help their friends. It is the law of the battlefield.

A tape obtained by NBC News showed what appears to be some of the battle, and the terrorists’ unsuccessful attempt to coax a Navy Seal to surrender. When the U.S. military sent in a rescue team, Ismail’s men were waiting with a rocket-propelled grenade, downing the helicopter, and then spreading out recovered weapons and hi-tech equipment. Later, they displayed captured communications equipment and weapons.

Hey Commander Ismail ! This is our troops reply to you!

Wild Thing's comment.......
OK I realize it is important to get the word out and I have complained before about how one sided the alphabet media is on the war and concerning our troops. I will say then that I am glad they say they turned over this video interview etc. to our Government and I hope it helps.

I guess it is just that when I see the name Lisa Myers connected to something I have instant feedback to the Clinton regime and Lisa Myers .......UGH and it is not pleasant to say the least.

The fact that NBC needs to mention once again how many soldiers we have lost in Afghanistan in 2005 to promote their article is a dig they do not need to use and yet they do. That was NOT a part of the interview and yet they just had to bring it up. If I was looking for subliminal things this one would not even be that hidden to find.

What I mean is this, here is the interview and leave it at that. That would still be giving us the news and letting us decide how we feel about it. But once again NBC has to slant it with a negative tone regarding our troops. By saying what they did in the article that were words NOT said by the terrorist they are promoting the terrorists and their efforts. Making them look victorious. If NBC spent as much time showing us what the troops are doing on the positive side and the tremendous efforts that have been made in Iraq and Afghanistan than I would lighten up a little on them. But alas my gavel comes down heavy on traitors in the media, in government or civilians that in any way promote the deaths of our troops when it is not necessary.

It is like, hey look listen to this terrorist because he with his other comrades has taken out a lot of American's so he is stronger then we are ...............and as for me he can BITE ME! Our troops rock and this Commander Ismail is a mouth piece much like Howard Dean.

What I saw in this video and read in the article is this....................
"we're just freedom fighters attacking only those who attack us"; "we tried to get the Navy Seal to surrender to our tender mercies, but the stubborn galoot wouldn't quit"; "here we are training our army of workers and peasants who want to give their all for Islam and Afghanistan". Where was the message: "we're a bunch of murdering thugs right out of the seventh century"? I missed that part. This is a "Taliban is back, with a vengeance" message, and it very much was US Military and Bush bashing.

Hi Lee, I would love to know when they stopped punishing for treason. It siockens me and angers me so much that people get away with treason in this country and to think it is not only civilians like Fonda but those in government as well. Grrrrrrrr

I agree bring the punishment back.
