Another Reason Why I Cannot Trust Nor Believe The Liberal Press These days...

This article that gets plastered on my Yahoo news page this Memorial Day weekend, starts like this....
U.S. deaths near grim Memorial Day mark

By STEVEN R. HURST, Associated Press Writer
2 hours, 54 minutes ago

BAGHDAD - Americans have opened nearly 1,000 new graves to bury U.S. troops killed in Iraq since Memorial Day a year ago. The figure is telling — and expected to rise in coming months.

In the period from Memorial Day 2006 through Saturday, 980 soldiers and Marines died in Iraq, compared to 807 deaths in the previous year...
Very sad, obviously the death toll is higher this year in troubled Iraq.

However, Iraq is not the only conflict that is putting American soldiers in their graves this past year. At least 94 American soldiers have paid the ultimate price in the conflict in Afghanistan this past year. This is down form 105 the previous year, but the previous year figures included the 19 soldiers killed last June in a crash of helicopter searching for several soldiers killing its 19 occupants. So, let us not forget our soldiers battling the twisted Taliban and Al Queda madmen in that theater.

But why did the AP and writer Steven Hurst completely ignore these soldiers deaths, that clearly deserved to be included in the article? Because it has nothing to do with reporting news or giving respect to the fallen or their families, but to use these unfortunate deaths in a political hit piece that pushes AP's political leftist agenda. Who are they, another Soros funded political group? Not much different.

The AP is not honest nor should be respected or trusted reporting the news. Shame on the AP and the writer Hurst.
