GG091211: Is NPR Disseminating Pentagon Agitprop?
Could this NPR report possibly be Pentagon agitprop meant to counter public concern over civilian deaths in Afghanistan? The piece produces anecdotal evidence by interviewing US soldiers who are frustrated by the question of whether to shoot or not, and imply the rules of engagement are too strict and make it more difficult to do their job. (No word about Predator drone operations which have reportedly been killing 50 civilians for every one militant.) —
