Afghanistan: The “Big” Media’s Question Today is Wrong and Dangerous

“The big question in the media today is, ‘Will Afghanistan again become a ‘breeding ground’ for terrorists who may again attack America?’ It’s the wrong question. We’ve all heard that question asked, in a dozen variations, probably a hundred times in the past few months in the media. And it’s not just the wrong question: it strengthens the GOP frame that lets George W. Bush off the hook for many of his worst failures and crimes. Afghanistan had little to nothing to do with 9/11. It’s time to put this tired and deceptive canard to bed.” (08/31/21)
