(A) voice of the insurgency around Marjah

This insurgent, in the video report below, who describes himself/themselves as mujahid/mujahideen, and not specifically as talib/Taliban (which may or may not have significance), gives an interview here to al-Jazeera. Describes Islam/shariat as "no corruption/when innocent people are not hassled" etc. This is all interesting and revealing. But it is equally interesting to discover, halfway through the video, the infusion kit he is attached to. Having been shot in the chest during battle. He seems to have received medical assistance quite fast.
