In the past 24 hours, LiveLeak user VikingRapeSquad posted 2 interesting news articles originating from Afghanistan:
Firstly, A story of 15 'Taliban' who were allegedly killed by a civillian uprising (note:- almost every 'islamic' militant, regardless of their creed or belief is usually labelled as Taliban.)
Secondly, A story of In-fighting between Islamic Militia's - Hezbi Islami (Party of Islam) and The Taliban (contradictory to the above note, I know.)
VikingRapeSquad posted these 2 articles from Bakhtar News Agency (BNA). Bakhtar News Agency is the official news agency is the Afghan government ('Find' News Agencies List.)
Image shows Google search results also stating that Bakhtar is the official news agency of the Afghan government.
Bakhtar is Afghanistan's own version of PRESS TV or RT (Russia Today). Whilst both all 3 agencies are interesting in their own right, we have to expect a huge ammount of propaganda and spin.
I wanted to investigate Bakhtar specifically because VikingRapeSquad is openly racist and I wanted to explore his sources in order to understand why someone might be inclined to believed that one race is superior to another.
To Proceed: Both of the articles in Question are interesting but perhaps unfortunately, there is not much proof that either of these events occurred. Multiple google searches searching for the news within the last 24 hours reveals NOTHING.
Civillian Uprising Against the Taliban in Ghor?
Searching for the alleged civillian uprising against the 'Taliban'.
The image shows Google search results for "Ghor Province Taliban" in the last 24 hours reveals only the original article from Bakhtar and the post made on LiveLeak by VikingRapeSquad.
You can do do this search yourself and carry on reading the results and you will not find an article or reposting about this (as of 7th June 2012). You can even exclude province from the search and still be left with the same results.
Perhaps this is because news out of Ghor province is slow?

Image shows Google search results for 'Ghor Province' in the past 24 hours and you can see 3 articles published after the alleged uprising. You can do this search yourself and find many more published after the alleged uprising.
Hizbi Islami and Taliban Fighting each other in Wardak/Miran Shahr?
Searching for the alleged fighting
Image shows Google Search Results for 'Wardak Taliban' in the past 24 hours. You can do do this search yourself and carry on reading the results and you will not find an article or reposting about this (as of 7th June 2012).
Maybe I got the wrong key words?
Searching for Wardak Militia
Image shows Google Search Results for 'Wardak Miltia' in the past 24 hours. You can do do this search yourself and carry on reading the results and you will not find an article or reposting about this (as of 7th June 2012).
I even tried using Miran Shahr instead of Wardak and also didn't find any articles about this.
For something that would be a huge PR victory for ISAF you will be shocked to learn that there are no reposts of this or any other reports or accounts of these stories on the internet.
Perhaps the Afghan government's propaganda against the people who fight foreign government intervention in Afghanistan is out of synch with the rest of the world or; perhaps it is just fabricating stories to cause divisions in the resistance to foreign military presence.
We have to be objective and note that there has previously been differences between Hezbi-Islami and the Taliban which have turned into fighting. More recently, they have performed successful joint operations.
Hezbi-Islami (meaning party of islam) also participates in politics and many people believe that the political movement is instructed by the armed militant movement (similar to HAMAS and Hezbollah). This even includes 'peace talks' in return for political power in which they have 'earned' seats within the administration.
The Taliban repeatedly deny the existence of 'Peace Talks' and do not involve themselves in co-operating with a foreign backed government or trying to win influence in the democratic political theatre.
Perhaps these events did happen, but it really doesn't seem that there is any proof. Bakhtar News Agency is state run and it is obvious who are the lackeys of the NATO occupation. We can firmly establish that the NATO PR machine is out of synch, having a break, not working or simply to busy making up stories to increase troop morale and decrease the morale of those who oppose them.
