NYT, Afghans and 'Corrosive Distrust'

By davidswanson - Posted on 14 May 2010

Peter Hart calls out the New York Times for blaming the Afghan people for not trusting their lying sack of an excuse for a government, not to mention distrusting the benevolent Americans.

Despite violence rising, civilian deaths rising, the Taliban growing stronger, and the Afghan government growing weaker, the New York Times apparently considers it news that progress is being made, purely because Obama and Karzai said so.

Oh, and McChrystal said so too and even went to the trouble to ban the term "operation".

It's two pages of the same date, but having viewed the following video clip before reading this page, your second paragraph simply caused the urge to make this post.

After all, the video clip tells us about the IMPRESSIVELY enlargened and still-growing resistance front in Afghanistan; as well as increasing violence and that there is NOT a single Afghan district that supports the puppet regime gov't of the US there. The title of the page doesn't say what the clip is about, so a lot of people potentially might not bother checking the video. I could have easily done that, because of having seen enough good clips from Rethink Afghanistan, as well as some I found to be rather useless. But, the following is surely among the most important clips from Rethink Afghanistan, so far.
