I posted a question yesterday about how the U.S. military probably is killing civilians (not as indiscriminately as in the following link, but with impunity), and what do I see today but evidence of exactly that.
In Afghanistan, some U.S. soldiers were caught in a suicide bombing. They go into escape mode, which is a reasonable thing to do. They start shooting. Which would be a reasonable thing to do except the shooting was indiscriminate and innocent and weaponless civilians died.
They then forced a reported (not an American) to delete pictures he took of the aftermath.
The press is the only protection against American arrogance and overreaching, and a thin shield it is too.
