Remember the 200 -300 civilians that were allegedly killed by a U.S. airstrike against top Taliban leaders? The Taliban claimed that what the U.S. really bombed was a busy market. Upon checking the claims of heavy civilian casualties, NATO investigated. Number of actual civilians killed:
It's not so much that the Taliban makes these claims that bothers me, it's that the Western press actually reports them.
This is the kind of thing that upsets me about the MSM. It is not that they get the facts wrong, they don't even check for fact or fiction. Anything that makes the military, President, or America look bad is good news.
