the davis report: major u.s. media blackout?

looking at results on bing, afghan war whistleblower is ignored by most media in u.s., despite what appears to be an airtight case that the afghan war has been a total failure

Davis interviewed more than 250 people – US military personnel and Afghan nationals – in his recent year in the war zone. He compared what he learned from them with optimistic projections from the likes of David Petraeus, former head of the military’s CentCom and of the US military in Afghanistan, and now head of the CIA, who told Congress on 15 March 2011, that:

“[T]he momentum achieved by the Taliban in Afghanistan since 2005 has been arrested in much of the country, and reversed in a number of important areas.”

In his AFJ piece, Davis wrote:

“Instead, I witnessed the absence of success on virtually every level … insurgents controlled virtually every piece of land beyond eyeshot of a US or International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) base.”

His observations concur with the death of Osbrany Montes de Oca. His girlfriend, Maria Samaniego, told the New York Daily News, “He was walking out of the base and he was immediately shot.”
