Who needs silly facts in the build up to another war?
These 2 articles were both posted at the Washington Post, and while they both contain basically the same information, their titles convey very different ideas. The first is from Reuters and the second from Associated Press:
U.S. says can’t link Tehran to Afghan arms flow
Gates: Taliban Fighters Use Iran Weapons
Both articles fail to mention that Iran and the Taliban are ideologically opposed and Iran actually supported us in the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.
Now if the U.S. government was held accountable for all weapons used in conflict around the world that originated here or from U.S. corporations, and they should be, there would probably be much less violence in the world. As it is, the U.S. has made a concerted effort to oppose an control or regulation of the global arms trade.
