Western Execution of Afghan Children?

The (UK) Times reports:

American-led troops were accused yesterday of dragging innocent children from their beds and shooting them during a night raid that left ten people dead.

Afghan government investigators said that eight schoolchildren were killed, all but one of them from the same family. Locals said that some victims were handcuffed before being killed.

I very much hope this report is false — though I don’t support our presence in Afghanistan at all, I also don’t want this to be true of the soldiers we have there.  It brings the injustice to a new level.

Side note:  Have any of you seen reports of this in American media?  I haven’t.
