DEPT. OF DEFENSE ADMITS IT HAS BEEN LYING TO AMERICAN PUBLIC: NOW
CONFESSES REPEATED BOMBING OF RED CROSS IN KABUL "ON PURPOSE"
By: Jeff Smith
Last night MSNBC TV reported some thirty times that our Dept. of
Defense finally ADMITTED it targeted the Red Cross in Kabul ON PURPOSE
on the two (or more) occasions we bombed them. Thus the Defense
Dept. admitted it had been lying to the American public for weeks
that it hit the Red Cross "in error". The Dept. of Defense
offers the excuse that it was because the Taliban was "getting
food" from it. Today this is NOWHERE in the media or internet
(CNN, MSNBC, CBS, etc) and they stopped talking about it on TV.
But then I finally found the confession BURIED deep inside another
story from today. As Chomsky said, "The news is out there,
but it is only available to a fanatic" (willing to spend all
their time searching for and unearthing it.) (Recent Chomsky on
www.zmag.org ). This for me demonstrates the importance of the media
issues FAIR www.fair.org dedicates itself to: What is the meaning
of democracy when we make our choices based on false or no information?
First, this is the Dept. of Defense lie from last week saying the
second bombing of the Red Cross was "also in error" just
as supposedly we hit it the first time "in error". Note
this section: "Although details are still being investigated,
preliminary indications are that the warehouses were struck due
to a human error in the targeting process," the Pentagon said
in a statement. "Regarding the F/A-18C that inadvertently struck
the residential area, initial indications are that the bomb's guidance
system malfunctioned." :
