Why and To What End in Afghanistan

Why and To What End in Afghanistan by Ralph Nader

In this article, Mr Nader talks about the case of Matthew P. Hoh, a name and a story that every American should be very aware of.

In a larger sense, Ralph Nader is a great American hero. A true patriot whose understandings and vision can do so much good for this country - except he's been the target of the "news machine" for so long that a mention his name results in a reflexive negative reaction.

He is another perfect example of how a sustained propaganda campaign can destroy anyone the "news machine" decides to target. Jimmy Carter is another example. Ron Paul another. The list isn't miles long, but people like these do exist and we must come to terms with the fact that they've been marginalized (at best) by propaganda, but these are the very people with the most to offer.
