As possible Afghan war-crimes evidence removed, U.S. silent

Seven years ago, hundreds of suspected Taliban and Al Qaida prisoners who'd surrendered to Gen. Abdul Rashid Dostum, a key U.S. ally, were found dead in the shipping containers they'd been confined to. Now Dostum's forces have emptied the mass graves where the men were buried and spirited away their corpses, the only evidence of what happened. No one — not the U.S., the United Nations or NATO — has complained about what is a major violation of international law.
