Germany Allegedly Helped U.S. Assassinate Taliban Leaders
August 4, 2010
The list was called the “Joint Prioritized Effects List” and had the name of Taliban leaders on it. Germany put 13 names on the list, and even though they requested that the U.S. capture them, the troops in charge of the missions have the authorization to shoot and kill whenever they determine it’s necessary.
There are six different lists that tell troops who to capture or kill, including one from NATO. But the U.S. troops are following the JPEL, and Germany refused to say whether the names they submitted to the JPEL were the same as the ones they had on the NATO list.
