This story about how 10 American soldiers were killed in Afghanistan today received only one major newspaper report, the New York Times.
The press have proven what we have been saying for over two years.
The media in this country don't give a damn about our troops overseas in IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN.
It should be noted also that not a single TV news station reported on this debacle that has taken place on Friday in Afghanistan.
