Democracy Now: Report: U.S. Hid Magnitude of Deadly Taliban Attack


The Washington Post has revealed a recent Taliban attack in Afghanistan was far worse for the U.S.-led occupation force than initially reported. The United States claimed it had suffered no casualties in successfully repelling a Taliban operation on a U.S. outpost in Khost on June 1. But the Washington Post reports two U.S. soldiers and five Afghan civilians were killed when a truck bomb slammed into the U.S. base. Another three dozen troops were seriously wounded while another 100 were treated for minor injuries. The U.S. statement at the time omitted mention of the deaths and of the truck bomb.
