CBS went with this headline:
What was it Leon Panetta said? “War is hell.”
Original, n’est-ce pas?
As well as thoroughly jejune, self absorbed and insufficient unto the day. 1 Yet again America’s war machine starts in with the propaganda – we need to feel “good” about ourselves, our troops, our little war.
Not to put too fine a point on it, the fucking dead Afghanis are have caused a public relations nightmare. For which I’m sure the dead Afghanis would heartily apologize, efendi, were they not, you know, dead.
However we expect the Afghanistan consulate to issue an apology any day now.
