This sort of makes me think how it used to be for the news services and how it is today. The NYTimes (the paper of record?) was deign to cover Hitlers atrocities against the jews. Even though the paper is owned by a jew. Only later and reluctantly at best was some of it covered/ uncovered as it were.
Today the news wires/ services including CNN try to obscure any atrocities by Americas enemies while at the same time trying to deliberately mis-characterize even so much as an American serviceman or woman stubbing their toe to be some sort of atrocity against human decency. All this with the tacit approval of our own government. In fact is goes further. Its encouraged. Our own military is often characterized or compared by congressmen as behaving like nazis. Not only congressmen but a former senator who is now president too.
This case probably doesnt fall into this subset. But it just made me think. And as I understand it, the rules of engagement for our forces have been changed by these patriots in our congress so that now our forces must be fired upon FIRST before they can take action. So if I understand this right, our heros must watch their friends be killed (in some or many cases) before they can even engage the enemy. I wonder how many times you have to watch that happen before your eyes before something breaks down in your pyche.
Anyways as I said before, this particular incident reported by CNN does sound like an atrocity. It just made me think, thats all.
