Taliban Takes it to the U.S. in Media Fight

The Taliban are better at getting their message out to the media than the U.S. That is very apparent.  Every time the U.S. is responsible for civilian deaths (an occasion that happens much too often) the Taliban media machine goes into overtime; while the U.S. goes into the apology mode.  Yet we don't hear much about the Taliban atrocities.  One can blame the U.S. and world media; but still . . . shouldn't the most powerful nation in the world with the technological advantages that it enjoys be doing a little bit better?  Read "US fights Taliban on another front: public relations", The Christian Science Monitor, May 13, 2009.
