Taliban propaganda on wired?
Is Noah Shachtman unknowingly promoting Taliban propaganda?
Read the comments:
The Taliban propaganda has been pushing the Drone attacks kill many civilians and
are an attack on the Muslim religion.
Of course thats not true, and there have been many restrictions placed on drone
attacks, that have greatly limited civilian deaths.
US can't run military operations in Paki but they can do Drone attacks.
And war does have collateral damages, civilians always get killed.
But no country in the world has ever done more to limit civilian deaths
then the current US Military.
The problem isn't the Drone attacks, its the Info War propaganda
run by the Taliban, of course US is not in a war against Muslims.
And the civilian deaths are far lower than the Taliban promote and
The problem lies in the poor anti-propaganda run by the US and
the number of terrorist sites left up to promote these lies.
Taliban says 10 civilians killed in strike. And the US response
is we will investigate, and weeks later the truth comes out.
But in the mean time the press carries the story of 10 civilians
Killed and its believed. For two weeks, or the readers never
hear the truth.
The truth is there is very few civilian casualties, and US
is not at war with all Muslims, just the terrorists.
And the Terrorist are bringing children into battle
to increase civilian deaths.
The drones are the weapon the Taliban fear the most
and the drone strikes are being run very responsibly
"This is not a fight over territory but for our
existence and survival,"

There was a vid on YOUTUBE showing a child involved
in planting roadside IEDs, carrying materials, a pre-teen.
( But YOUTUBE removed it.
Scarborough says he would rather have US send troops in to get the Terrorists.
WTF, its Paki, he wants us to invade Paki? He says US is dropping Drones all
over the place. Is he a Taliban supporter? His remarks are untrue and irresponsible.
The problem isn't the drone attacks, The problem is
the propaganda lying about the drone attacks and
misleading reports like the one on Wired.
Where readers believe the lies.
This "Am JOE" show was a cluster F*** of half truths and
"It doesn't take a weak mind to
fall for the Terrorist propaganda;
it just takes presenting it in a
format that the reader believes.
Its human nature to want to right
a wrong, and the more wrong the
act is the stronger the motivation.
Regardless whether the supposed
wrong is true or not.
It just has to be presented in a format
the reader will believe, without
any opposing comment or suspicion
it is a lie."

I think Noah, award-winning Blogger, has been mislead on this
issue. And generally does an outstanding
job of reporting.
