The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan website posted this report on the agreement with NATO forces on the koran burning at Bagram Air Force Base. NATO has agreed to bring to trial those accused of the “crime” as soon as possible.

Following the insulting and shameful act of burning Quran in Bagram airbase that injured the religious sentiments of the Islamic world and particularly of the Afghan Muslim nation, two delegations comprising of representatives from government, the National Council of Ulemma and the National Assembly were assigned and dispatched to investigate the circumstances and causes that have led to the inhumane incident.

The delegations, while deeply touched by the religious sentiments shown by the Afghan Muslim and Mujahid nation, inform our citizens of the following:

1. In view of the particular security situation in the country, we call on all our Muslim citizens of Afghanistan to exercise self-restraint and extra vigilance in dealing with the issue and avoid resorting to protests and demonstrations that may provide ground for the enemy to take advantage of the situation.

2. After the shameful incident by the US soldiers stationed in Bagram, senior NATO and American officials expressed their deep apologies to the Muslim nation of Afghanistan and assured that such incidents will not happen again.

3. NATO officials promised to meet Afghan nation’s demand of bringing to justice, through an open trial, those responsible for the incident and it was agreed that the perpetrators of the crime be brought to justice as soon as possible.

4. The assigned delegations demand from the government of Afghanistan to take over from the Americans the authority of the Bagram prison so no such incidents can recur and calls on the US government to fully and comprehensively cooperate to this end.

    This administration deserves absolutely no respect or allegience!!!

    1. Is NATO going to come the “Perpetrators”, and attempt to arrest them?

    2. If so, will we allow them to do this? Will we hand someone over to them, or will we fight back?

    3. If NATO does get their paws on the “Perpetrators”, what will their punishment be? Beheading? Will they get a trial? Legal representation?

    4. If Obama goes along with Americans being imprisoned, or beheaded, for this, doesn’t he deserve to be impeached?

    5. What the hell are we doing in Afghanistan?

  • OldSailor

    Some one explain to me WHY Obama apologized to the people who are proving to be our enemies.

    Our war goals were met the moment that a SEAL put that round between bin Laden’s running lights. It seems certain to me that there is nothing further to be gained by staying in Afghanistan any longer. The population doesn’t want us there and seems to be embracing the Taliban.

    I think we need to take our aid, take our people, our money, cut our losses and leave.

    5. The delegations also want from the Afghan government to formally praise those brave Afghan army soldiers and all others who showed feelings against the disrespectful act by preventing more religious books and Quran copies from burning, so that the pure Muslim sentiments of our honored Mujahid nation can remain alive

  • Rhinestone Suderman

    Frankly, I think any, and all, American employees, soldiers, operatives, diplomats, etc. should just get the hell out of Afghanistan right now—just grab a plane, a car, a truck, hop over the border, etc.—yes, even if it means you’ll technically be a deserter.

    Better that than stick around, and wait to see if you’re among the ones who gets turned over to NATO and the Afghans for the “crime” of burning Korans.

    Another question:

    1. If someone is fingered for burning the Korans (probably some low level employees*), are American soldiers going to turn them over to NATO and the Afghans? Or will they resist? And will Obama do, in such a circumstance.

    (*Seriously, if you have some low-level job here, and you might be implicated in the Koran burning, or handled some paperwork for it, for God’s sake, get out now! Just leave!)

    Where’s Lady Mondegreen to claim that all comments are racist?

    LM, STFU!!!!!!

  • Joanne

    Something is going on with barenakedislam again, and this is happening to other people trying to get on the site as well. Muslims hate the truth. It becomes difficult to take over a nation when everyone is learning the truth about you….and they don’t want that.

  • Joanne

    Obama gets away with everything because he can. It is time the American people show Obama that his free reign is over. How much damage can Obama do until the next election in November? Watch him and see!

  • Sanmon

    Seven U.S. soldiers ALREADY MURDERED in Afghanistan, as anti-American violence continues.

    The penalty for Burning the Quran by Infidels’ under Sharia Law is DEATH.
    Are we going to stand by and let our TROOPS be put to death under Sharia Law for following protocol and orders that Obama signed off on by being Commander and Chief!

    HELL NO!
    Obama leads the war! Obama is the True one placing Americans on trial for following HIS protocol and orders!

    I would prefer our President did not place our Troops on Trial for following protocol and orders.

    But if the President does not Support Our Troops then we MUST!

    Afghan Military and ANP have Now murdered 7 US soldiers
    We are putting Americans on trial for following protocol and orders!
    We have Pulled our troops back from contact from Afghan Military and ANP!

    WHAT SAY YOU ?????????????????????????????????
    Start the Tweets
    Start the Facebooking
    Start the e-mails
    Start the Phone Calls


    Or are we going to BOW to ISLAMIST!

  • lol

    the weak a$s republicans in congress better speak out on behalf of our soldiers, and not allow this “trial” to happen. this regime always diminished america and its military. every time i hear nato and our allied partners i want to puke! the proper disposal of korans is to burn and bury. our soldiers were following the muslim rules. outrageous, and pathetic if they allow this.

  • Joanne

    “So, we have a dictatorial group now ruling–not governing–us which has destroyed our jobs and is in the process of destroying the employers who provide those jobs. It is, also, gutting our US Treasury, taking our money and spending it on the globalists, Islam and whatever other groups wanting and working with Obama to destroy what used to be our country.”

    “How much more will it take, America, for us to rise up against this massive onslaught?”

    It is a good short read.

    There seems to be only one solution for America, and if they don’t know what it is, then the people of America better gather their courage and what is necessary to take her back.

  • Rhinestone Suderman

    Joanne, yes, I can’t get on Bare Naked Islam this morning, either. Or Winds of Jihad. What’s going on, here?

    If these soldiers are put on trial, I believe a mass Koran burning would be in order, as a protest. I also think we ought to get on our elected representatives, and tell them we won’t stand for it. Burning a book is not a crime under our laws, no American citizen should go on trial for it!

    And, speaking of separation of church and state, since when is it the business of an American president to enforce shari’a law? If Obama allows any American to be put on trial for this, wouldn’t he be acting as some sort of religous Caliph, which is against our Constitution, since the American president isn’t supposed to have religious powers?

  • Rhinestone Suderman

    And, again, I urge any low level workers who might be connected with the incident to simply grab their passport, some cash, and get the heck out of Aghanistan.

  • lizzy84

    Anybody else would have impeached by now for this anti-American conduct! What are Republicans doing??…sleeping at the wheel as usual!

  • 1RedBeard

    If this story is factual, then NATO will be putting itself on trial by default. In doing so, NATO will harm itself greatly, perhaps beyond the point of no return.

  • thenabrd

    if anyone is put on trial for this, we haven’t seen anything yet in this country. remember bambam has tried everything from race to class warfare and everything else in between, including religion, to ignite wide spread violence in this country. so far no one has taken the bait, except his own occutards and union thugs and he won’t do a thing to stop them!! he’ll only clamp down on those he knows don’t bow to him and his “vision” . bambam is running out of time and is desperate to retain power, forever, if he can figure out a way to do it. this may be the way!!! he knows the people won’t stand for this blatant act against our military and will bring out more people than the original tea parties. i’m sure he, jarrett, et al, are jubilant at this point and are fine tuning their plans!!!

  • Ex-Californian

    The obvious willingness of the obumunists, media, the democraps, the DC establishment repubics allow American soldiers to be sacrificed to the pislamic loons is going to be one more nail in the coffin of big government as we the hoipoloi finally bring down the entire rotten apple of statist socialism.

  • Mn Jim

    This is the only picture I have ever seen of a Muslim smiling.

  • Chris in N.Va.

    A lose-lose proposition.

    These wacked-out, utterly irrational, blood-thirsty thugs are 10000% unable to be appeased in any way, shape or form short of the U.S. being turned into a continent-sized radioactive crater in the ground.

    Tell them to keep on with their centuries-old tradition of pounding sand.

    If Kowardly-Lion Karzai thinks for a nano-second that the Taliban crocodile he’s steadily feeding with appetizer tidbits will not eventually eat him too, he’s living in a drug-induced hallucination.
