How the West’s Media Twisted the Taliban Video
Hameed Abdul Karim
There was something strange, something amiss you might say, about Taliban’s video showing the release of U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. And that was the superimposition of the words ‘Don’ Come Back to Afghanistan Again’ which appeared once while Sgt. Bergdahl was seated in the back of the pickup truck and then again when the Blackhawk gunship is in the air bringing to mind the words ‘Hi Yo Silver Away!’ the Lone Ranger utters as he gallops away into sunset after accomplishing his many missions for the good of mankind.
