Taliban To Afghan Media: You Hurt Our Feelings

Because our freedom of speech is being violated
The Taliban have criticized the Afghan government for forbidding live media coverage of militant attacks, calling it a violation of the freedom of speech.

"This totally undermines freedom of the press and expression and cannot be justified by any means," Taliban spokesperson Yousuf Ahmadi said on Wednesday.

Afghanistan earlier on Monday said journalists would be allowed to film only the aftermath of attacks in accordance with Article 7 of Afghanistan's national security law.
Poor Ahmadi, he needs it for propaganda and Afghanistan isn't cooperating. Get him a GITMO lawyer NOW.
