POLITICAL ESSAYS
The Military DUH
`
`
June 19, 2005
Associated Press
U.S. Airstrikes Kill 20 Afghan
Militants
`
The headline is a face-saver.
`
Below that DUH is the gist of
the newsstory:
`
"Three months of bloodshed
across the south and east [of
Afghanistan]...left hundreds
dead and sparked fears that
the Afghan war is widening,
rather than winding down."
`
`
But that headline, and many
others like it, are DUH-DUHs.
`
Eh?
`
June 18, 2005
Associated Press
AP Interview: Algerian In-
surgents Active
`
"'We understand the strategic
importance of Africa,' [a top
U.S. general] said. 'If you
take away sanctuary, mobility
and support from terrorist
organizations like has been
done in Afghanistan, they're
gonna move somewhere else.'"
`
One military DUH propagates
another.
