Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)

The Northern Alliance appear to have committed war crimes towards surrendered Taliban soldiers in November, reports Babak Dehghanpisheh, John Barry and Roy Gutman of Newsweek.
Five days later we can see that the Bush administration hasn't had to spin this at all and I believe the reason stems from timid reporters and the fact that Americans don't really care. I am suprised this hasn't gotten more coverage in the press outside the U.S. and amongst more critical commentators, although Eric Alterman, to his credit, did note the story.
