60 Minutes presents us with a video piece about Green Berets fighting Taliban (or at least 60 Minutes says they were Taliban) in Afghanistan. The entire slant of the piece is intended to lionize the U.S. soldiers, without a word questioning the war or the possibility that the Afghanis may have been fighting to rid their country of foreigners. Here is 60 Minutes’ introduction:
“This is a story about valor. But it’s also a wake-up call about the growing strength of the enemy in Afghanistan.”
Nice of these “objective” journalists to decide for us who the enemy are. The whole video is viewable here.
