"Delete Them, or We Will Delete You"
I am very empathetic to how tense the situation is in Afghanistan right now. Hell, I had a very good friend killed by the Taliban in early December. But there is simply no excuse for what Marines Special Forces did to journalists in eastern Afghanistan over the weekend. If you're not willing to totally come clean with the press around you, you give the impression of having something to hide. There's plenty of places to turn existing ire -- Musharraf, the ISI, and the entire government of Pakistan, for example. But don't fuck with the press, friends.
