Our latest disagreement with the Taliban: the number of people who were killed by an attack on the Afghan village of Karam, and what they were up to. The Taliban says 200 villagers died in the attack, Donald Rumsfeld says that the Taliban are “accomplished liars.” I honestly have no idea who’s telling the truth. The attack has been a public relations boon for the Taliban — since they made the claims, governments of Islamic countries around the world are getting cold feet about our continued bombing of Afghanistan.

Note: this report from a Pakistani journalist working for the New York Times who was on the scene says that villagers are reporting 53 casualties, and that 22 bodies had been found.
