Impunity in Afghanistan and Iraq

Foreign countries with military in Afghanistan and Iraq have in practice long had impunity for many of the crimes they have comitted there. Sadly, this seems to have become a permanent condition. In June, Iraq gave US troops immunity from prosecution there. The reason stated for this is ISIS, an organization there are many doubts about. Iraqi government forces are also reported to have impunity. Last month, Afghanistan’s new President¬†Ashraf Ghani accepted a deal to keep US occupation troops in the country and grant them impunity.
