Damage control RE: 16 Afghanis killed?Submitted by ThermopolisWarr... on Mon, 03/12/2012 - 06:55
I'm sure you have heard the news about the 'lone gunman' who slaughtered 16 human beings in Afghanistan. I've heard several different news-casts on the radio about this event, and now I've seen a version on the CNN.
OK, so here is where it gets strange. One of the reports I heard that differed from all the others was from the Coast-to-Coast radio show (the old Art Bell Program), and it really wasn't a news-cast. It was the host and a guest discussing it. The guest was the only person I've heard that has mentioned several troops engaging in this barbaric behavior, and also the only mention I heard of burning of the corpses.
Then a quick search brought this up:
Is this an example of news being sanitized for American consumtion?
EDIT: A talking head on CNN just mentioned 'reports' of several gunman, but no mention of the burning. Please note that the picture in the above link shows a dead corpse with clear evidence of immolation.
