Reporters Oppel and Shah are slanting the news again...misleading the public. Leaving reporters like these in the field and removing Michael Yon is more "control" by the Obama administration over what is released from that theater of war. You will not find truth from these reporters.

They blocked the road with burning tires for an hour and shouted, “Death to America!” and “Death to infidels!”

That sounds positively xenophobic and like Islamic supremacist hate speech. The NY Times needs to send the protesters to diversity training.

“It seems they are opening fire on civilians intentionally.”

Hogwash. Pure propaganda.

The locals get death threats from the Taliban for cooperating with the Westerners. The NY Times is doing an incredible diservice by giving a one sided slam against the US military.

A statement issued by the American-led military command in Kabul said that four people were killed. It said “an unknown, large vehicle” drove “at a high rate of speed” toward a slow-moving NATO convoy that was clearing mines.

Which side is it that is using landmines and IEDs to kill civilians deliberately again?

Where are the musicians and royalty who hold public rallies to denounce the use of landmines? Why are they stone silent on the Taliban's tactics?

Which part is not true?

Where was the NYT when the Russians were busy slaughtering 1.3 million Afghani’s in the 80’s? Oh, that’s right-5 deaths are a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.

Rules of Engagement. No better tool for our enemy to use against our own troops was ever written. Since when is a soldiers job or duty to limit ENEMY casualties or even those of innocents in war? Since LBJ that's when.
