"(Reuters) - Suspected insurgents opened fire on Tuesday on senior Afghan investigators of the massacre of 16 civilians by a lone U.S. soldier, Afghan officials said, just hours after the Taliban threatened to behead American troops to avenge the killings.

"The gunmen shot from long range at two of President Hamid Karzai's brothers, Shah Wali Karzai and Abdul Qayum Karzai, and security officials at the site of the massacre in Kandahar's Panjwai district."

This is only going to get worse... faster. For me, the most-important challenge and the immediate goal is to destroy the U.S. claim that a lone gunman was involved. Do that and the U.S. is defeated. -- MCR
