"This NYT report on the cover-up of U.S. war crimes in Syria should make your blood boil," says codepink's medeabenjamin. "The U.S. wantonly kills civilians, covers it up, and then tells other countries how 'democracy' works. Infuriating."
I don't know if I'm more mad at media for covering it up or for Biden who ordered it and pretends it never happened.
Do not expect Pentagon or any highrankinng US officials make an apology for this or ever be hel accountable.
'Infuriating' Report Reveals 'Breathtaking Cover-Up' of US Airstrike That Killed Syrian Civilians
"This NYT report on the cover-up of U.S. war crimes in Syria should make your blood boil. The U.S. wantonly kills civilians, covers it up, and then tells other countries how 'democracy' works."
Advocacy groups, human rights defenders, fellow reporters, and other readers of The New York Times were outraged Saturday after journalists Dave Philipps and Eric Schmitt published their investigation into a deadly 2019 U.S. airstrike in Syria and all that followed.
"This NYT report on the cover-up of U.S. war crimes in Syria should make your blood boil," Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the anti-war group CodePink, tweeted Sunday. "The U.S. wantonly kills civilians, covers it up, and then tells other countries how 'democracy' works. Infuriating."
Evan Hill, a journalist on the Times' visual investigations team, said that "this is a long, complicated story, but it's one that touches on nearly every problem with the global U.S. air war. At every attempt, the military tried to cover it up."
As the #Gaza war raged and tensions surged across the Middle East last May, Instagram briefly banned the hashtag #AlAqsa, a reference to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in #Jerusalem’s Old City, a flash point in the conflict.
Facebook, which owns I#nstagram, later apologized, explaining its algorithms had mistaken the third-holiest site in Islam for the militant group Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, an armed offshoot of the secular #Fatah party.
For many #Arabic-speaking users, it was just the latest potent example of how the social media giant muzzles political speech in the region. Arabic is among the most common languages on Facebook’s platforms, and the company issues frequent public apologies after similar botched content removals.
Now, internal company documents from the former Facebook product manager-turned-whistleblower Frances Haugen show the problems are far more systemic than just a few innocent mistakes, and that Facebook has understood the depth of these failings for years while doing little about it.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — As the Gaza war raged and tensions surged across the Middle East last May, Instagram briefly banned the hashtag #AlAqsa, a reference to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City, a flash point in the conflict.
Getting trashed by bots and anti russians on Reddit for posting this on a post about Russia spending millions on propaganda!
It seems like Americans not only have short memory, they also have a very sensitive trigger point, specially the Biden supporters who blame all the shit in the country on Russia or the Trump supporters blaming it on China!
But got forbid you mention their 70 years of disgusting foreign intervention and millions of dead people from Iran in 1953 to Bolivia a few years ago all across the globe.
I guess those evil Russians posting some fake stories on the American social Media sites is far worse than murderign Patrice Lumumba or killing Pinochet or training and supporting Osama Bin Laden and the drunk lunatic Yeltsin.
"Never Again" empty slogans of the #european leaders does not cover the #misery, #hunger and death of millions of Yemenites who are living under the worst conditions imaginable with the blessing of the US/UK/UN and direct criminal daily attacks by #SaudiArabia and #UAE.
A senior U.N. official warns that conditions for millions of Yemenis are horrendous and getting worse as prospects for a political solution remain elusive as the country enters its seventh year of conflict.
The United Nations has described Yemen as the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. The U.N. reports 20 million people or two-thirds of the population need humanitarian aid to survive, five million people are on the verge of famine and nearly 400,000 children are at imminent risk of death.
David Gressly is U.N. resident and humanitarian coordinator in Yemen. Behind these numbers, he says are people struggling every day to find food to eat, clean water to drink and medicine to cure diseases.
