From Tucson to Kabul

February 2011
Progressive Populist;2/15/2011, Vol. 17 Issue 3, p1
In this article the author compares the level of the media's coverage of the U.S. war in Afghanistan, which is resulting in multiple civilian deaths, with that of the Tucson shooting in Arizona, wherein six civilians were killed and 13 were wounded including a member of the U.S. Congress, on January 8, 2011. He claims that while Americans are mourning for the Tucson victims, nearly 100 percent of Americans did not know about the friendly fire incident in Afghanistan on January 10, which killed six innocent people.
