After Amnesty International decried the attack, publishing what the Afghan Taliban called a statement “suiting the fancy of the US embassy,” Afghan Taliban spokesman Zabihullah explained that the fighters targeted a “military-intelligence center” and not CARE International, whose officer is across the street. He added:

This is not the first time Amnesty International has unjustly ruled against us rather they also accused us of wrongdoings during the conquest of Kunduz last year in accordance with the guidelines of invaders and intelligence circles.

Yesterday the Asia Branch of this supposed impartial third party organization (Amnesty International) also advised the American intelligence (CIA) to make use of new technology in preventing further Mujahideen attacks, and thus prevent the attacks of independence seeking Afghans.

Such remarks and unfounded reports by Amnesty International show that this society is not a Human Right organization but is greatly influenced by the intelligence agencies of western invading countries. That is why it carries out suspicious activities to attain malicious goals which will further bring her impartial status under the spotlight and raise doubts in the minds of common people.
