BERLIN – DECEMBER 16: Frank-Walter Steinmeier, leader of the Bundestag faction of the German Social Democrats (SPD), speaks during debates at the Bundestag over the German-ordered bombing of Taliban-hijacked gasoline transporters near Kunduz in Afghanistan on December 16, 2009 in Berlin, Germany. Scores of civilians, in addition to many Taliban fighters, were killed in the bombing, and the subsequent political fallout cost both a German Defense Minister and the Chief of Staff their jobs. German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg is under growing pressure following his statements that the German-ordered bombing of Taliban-hijacked gasoline transporters near Kunduz in Afghanistan was appropriate, and a later statement that it was not, as well as allegations of a cover-up over what he knew about the incident and when.
