    License to Kill? (Afghanistan)

    Is this subject mentioned or reported anywhere else:
    The commander of Nato forces in Afghanistan Gen. Craddock has issued an order or "guidelince" coming close to an order that drug traffickers are to be killed without verifying whether or not they are actually connected to the Taliban insurgents. Several other senior officers oppose this directive that borders on assasination.
    Sources so far:
    NATO Officers Reject Order to Kill Afghan Drug Traffickers

    Is this so insignificant or didn't I search well enough? Why didn't I find anything about it in UK or US media to see how people there feel about it?

    Here's another link:

    It looks to me like the guy simply made a proposal and the Germans were so horrified they immediately leaked it to Der Spiegel. Can't say that I blame them.
