A Massacre in Farah Province, Afghanistan

Except for the graves, this photo from the village of Granai looks like most of the rest of Farah Province, where the only river dried up four years ago, and extreme drought prevails everywhere.

About 140 civilians were killed here by a US airstrike on May 4, 2009. The United States lied about it at the time, and they never stopped lying.

  1. The question of safety is hugely important because, as Smallman explains, if independent journalists cannot gain access, then the US military is better able to control the information flowing from the battlefield.

    “How many more massacres have gone completely uninvestigated because the slaughter has been off-limits to the press?”
