'It could have to do with what his name is on the birth certificate, who is actually listed as his father, the citizenship of the father,' Slom said.

They continue to react with shock and indignation whenever the Afghan “allies,” yes that is the term they use now for the countrymen of the country they invaded, attack the "coalition" forces.
