In this era one doesn't so much study war reports as untangle them

Compare MOA and AP reporting on the same war incident to see why President Trump, and mainstream news consumers,  don't stand a chance at understanding wars in the Middle East. 

The simple truth is that Moon of Alabama took the time to untangle information put out by a propaganda outfit; AP left it up to TV news producers, print editors, and the public to do the untangling. Only a member of the German public, "b" at Moon of Alabama, rose to the challenge. 

 "Independent Watchdog Group" Lobbies For War On Yemen And Iran (Moon of Alabama, March 27) will tell you all you need to know about the AP report, but b also links to the report and quotes from it.
