This Is What I'm Talking About

Noting a growing "credibility gap," a U.S. Army officer writes candidly about the chasm between official statements about the American war in Afghanistan and the reality he has seen with his own eyes. Compare this piece to this one.

We all know this. We all know there's a massive gap between the things being described by government institutions (and other institutions) and the things that are happening. That's true of the economy, true of the wars, true of justice.

Our official and institutional culture is addicted to lies, and allergic to plain truth. And that's more destructive than anything any enemy could ever do to us.
