Yahoo reported that they were there at the invitation of President Talibani. Therefore, they have diplomatic immunity and their arrest constitutes a violation of international law.

I can see your point: arresting people, then planting or manufacturing evidence, shooting away and then pretending that it was they who had been shot at, and just doing all it can to provoke an international crisis in order to "justify" further invasion.

The fact remains that these people had immunity and, so far, there has been no apology from Bush or his thugs.

It should be apparent to anyone that the American people rightly or wrongly choose to spend trillions on "defense" so they can muscle anyone they choose...for a real reason or a fabricated one, it's only ever mattered to Americans when the body-count became "excessive". If we disconnected the link that Israel enjoys with America....if we could magically convince American industry and manufacturing that continued reliance on petroleum profits will accelerate the destruction of this entire planet....if we held the people responsible for stoking the flames of war invasion and terrorism...(all over the world including America) and were able to convince the businessmen of the world that keeping the same structure intact that's been built over the past two hundred years in the name of profit actualy serves to engender conflict and war...and we could convince America to join the world.....

But hey I suppose we only get one Christmas wish anyway right....
