New York Times Supports Targeted Killings
by Stephen Lendman
NYT supports wealth, power, privilege and unchallenged US dominance.
It doesn't surprise. When America goes to war or plans one, Times editors march in lockstep. They support imperial lawlessness. More on that below.
America's AfPak war is illegal. Tactics include targeted killings. Drones, helicopters and other conventional air strikes are used.
On April 8, Russia Today headlined "Twelve civilians, including 11 children killed in Afghanistan NATO strike," saying:
Civilians were killed in Kunar province's Shigal district. Provincial spokesman Wasifullah Wasifi said:
"Eleven children and a woman were killed when an air strike hit their houses."
A NATO spokesman dismissively said accusations of civilian casualties are under investigation. Washington downplays civilian deaths. Investigations whitewash them.
