  •  Let's see, your blockquote form the article (0+ / 0-)

    restates in more detail what I posted. The only real "new" thing we learned was that the Taliban is using heat seeking missiles to down helicopter, and as the article your quoted noted:

    Over all, the documents do not contradict official accounts of the war.

    Cognitive dissonance doesn't mean what you perhaps think it does, since what you quoted supported what I said at the outset.

    cheers,

      "Over all, the documents do not contradict official accounts of the war. But in some cases the documents show that the American military made misleading public statements"

      Also, why this need for explicitly new information? What's wrong with repetition and more detailed accounts? Apparently Americans desperately need it, as the war keeps on churning.
