Boy: Taliban Recruited Me to Bomb Troops

I'm curious to see how the MSM is going to spin this to seem like it's everyone else's fault except the Taliban.

The story of a 6-year-old Afghan boy who says he thwarted an effort by Taliban militants to trick him into being a suicide bomber provoked tears and anger at a meeting of tribal leaders.

If a six-year-old can outsmart the Taliban how come we can't find Mullah Omar?

The account from Juma Gul, a dirt-caked child who collects scrap metal for money, left American soldiers dumbfounded that a youngster could be sent on such a mission. Afghan troops crowded around the boy to call him a hero.

Calling a child in Afghanistan dirt-caked is like calling water wet. No offense but personal hygiene isn't exactly high on the list of priorities over there in the fun ol' middle east. Honestly, when was the last time you saw a picture from that region that didn't have someone or something in it that desperately needed to be shot with a fire hose?

Though the Taliban dismissed the story as propaganda, at a time when U.S. and NATO forces are under increasing criticism over civilian casualties, both Afghan tribal elders and U.S. military officers said they were convinced by his dramatic account.

Well if the Taliban say it isn't true what possible reason do we have to say they're lying. You know, besides all the lying they've been doing over the last six years. Remember, these are the same people who blow up music stores cause CD's are evil. Same people who will cut your head off for shaving your beard. And the very same people who swore to Allah that Mullah Dadullah wasn't dead even when the guys body was being broadcast on CNN.

Juma said that sometime last month Taliban fighters forced him to wear a vest they said would spray out flowers when he touched a button. He said they told him that when he saw American soldiers, "throw your body at them."

Spray flowers? Man, I know like fifteen people over thirty who would fell for that shit. Smart kid.

"When they first put the vest on my body I didn't know what to think, but then I felt the bomb," Juma told The Associated Press as he ate lamb and rice after being introduced to the elders at this joint U.S.- Afghan base in Ghazni. "After I figured out it was a bomb, I went to the Afghan soldiers for help."

Good for him. Now spread the word little Juma, vests are bad.
