Blame America First

An item in the WSJ's Opinion Journal struck a cord with me because I had read the AP headline they reference earlier this morning. As with most readers, that is as far as I got. Turns out I was mislead, as they explain:

Blame America First

"U.S. Mistakenly Kills 7 Afghan Police" reads the headline of an Associated Press dispatch. Strictly speaking, this is not inaccurate, but the first paragraph makes clear that the headline is something less than a half truth:

Afghan police mistook U.S. troops on a nighttime mission for Taliban fighters and opened fire on them early Tuesday, prompting U.S. forces to return fire and call in attack aircraft. Seven Afghan police were killed.

The headline makes it sound as if the Americans rather than the Afghans made the mistake."

Realize that you are misled daily by the MSM due to their hatred of W!
