BBC's Paul Wood in Afghanistan: "How is this a legitimate way to fight?"

No, he's not confronting a Nato commander, but a Taliban commander.

The YouTube video linked below is a Paul Wood piece broadcast on BBC News at Ten on Monday, 15 November, 2010.

He interviews a "middle-ranking Taliban commander in Kabul" and asks the reasonable question:

"When you plant roadside bombs to kill the Americans, often you kill many, many civilians. How is this a legitimate way to fight?"

How often has the BBC reporter asked any NATO commander the following question?

"When you drop bombs to kill the Afghans, often you kill many, many civilians. How is this a legitimate way to fight?"
