Newsweek Reports-People Die

May 23 issue - "Did a report in NEWSWEEK set off a wave of deadly anti-American riots in Afghanistan? That's what numerous news accounts suggested last week as angry Afghans took to the streets to protest reports, linked to us, that U.S. interrogators had desecrated the Qur'an while interrogating Muslim terror suspects. We were as alarmed as anyone to hear of the violence, which left at least 15 Afghans dead and scores injured. But I think it's important for the public to know exactly what we reported, why, and how subsequent events unfolded." From the Editor's Desk at Newsweek.

Note from Sallyann: Sometimes it pays to dig a little deeper for the other side of the story. Main Stream Media has been reporting about the anti-American riots in Afghanistan that were caused by a Newsweek story. What you haven't been hearing is the story that caused the anti-American protest was not corroborated, but printed as if it were. Click on the link below and read Newsweek's updated comments. Also, go to the LittleGreenFootballs link on the sidebar for a more indepth overview of Newsweeks Liberal bias that threatens to cause an uprising in Afghanistan that will make Iraq's insurgency look like a walk in the park. I'm telling ya....the Left is just about brain dead when it comes to identifying what is dangerous anti-American propaganda...or is it? Seems to me the Left knows what it's doing. Only this time they can't weasel out of it. Their anti-American rhetoric got people killed and the finger of blame points directly at them. Do you think they'll learn from this? Don't count on it.

What a disgrace to our soldiers!! Putting them in harm's way to further their own cause. I wish the soldiers would boycott ALL media personnel amongst them. Just don't talk to them!! I wonder how safe the reporters would feel wondering around Afganistan and Iraq.

No headlines on the Newsweek fiasco just their simple "error" reported ina small paragraph in the back of the newspapers. Should have been major headlines!!
