U.S. Government Misled the Public About War in Afghanistan

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Documents obtained by the Washington Post show evidence of senior U.S. officials intentionally misleading the public about the state of war in Afghanistan over the past three presidential administrations. Interviews detailed in the documents suggest officials painted a more positive picture of the war than privately acknowledged and deliberately spun statistics to support public statements. All other coverage was in reaction to the Post's initial report published Monday morning.
