Guest: Zahir Tanin, Permanent Representative of Afghanistan to the United Nations The New York Times today is reporting “a wave of kidnappings followed by numerous beheadings of a minority ethnic group in Afghanistan known as 'Hazaras'.” The violence was carried out by the Taliban and though beheading is not normally a Taliban tactic, observers say this incident may be a bid for some of the attention ISIS is getting for its own extreme brutality.
