Propaganda & Mass Persuasion: Cover it up!

Cover it up!

"The U.S. military on Monday denied covering up evidence of air strikes against an Afghan village on July 1 which locals say killed dozens of people celebrating a wedding."
This quote talks about a cover up that might have taken place in Kakraka, Afghanistan on July 1st. According to the U.S. one of their gunships were under fire and no other choice but to return fire. And on the other hand Afghan locals say that there was no attack, but rather a celebration and was soon ended tragically by U.S. gunfire.
"It is not clear whether the Times story was referring to the preliminary U.N. report or a subsequent one, but the original U.N. findings make uncomfortable reading for the United States."
While there are two sides to the story it is hard to figure out which side is the truth. As U.S. citizens pertaining to war issues are only allowed to hear what the government wants us to hear. What is put out on the news is being filtered and we have no real clue what is true and what is false. In war there will always be a cover up or a lie here or there that is just how it is and how it will always be, because if we knew everything that went on we would protest every war.
