I am sad for the loss of any life.  The women and children who were killed in this attack.  Also, for the thousands of American men, women and children, and Afghan civilians who have been killed by the Taliban.  

The Taliban have vowed revenge against the U.S. after at least one American soldier shot to death 16
civilians in southern Afghanistan and burned their bodies.
The militant group says in a statement on their website that “American savages” committed the “blood-soaked and inhumane crime” in Panjwai district.
The U.S. has said the shootings before dawn Sunday in two villages were carried out by a single American soldier, who is now in custody.
But Afghans have expressed doubt that a single soldier could have carried out the shootings in houses over a mile (2 kilometers) apart.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for several attacks last month that the group said were in retaliation for the Americans burning Qurans.
