US government misleading Americans on Afghanistan: New York Times report • Salaam One سلام

The US government misleads its public to justify the 17-year-old war in Afghanistan, routinely using inflated data to justify its stay, The New York Times reported on Saturday. The report compares the US government`s data with those provided by various international aid agencies and with NYT`s own research and concludes that Washington does not want Americans to know the real situation in Afghanistan.
While the US government says the Taliban control or contest 44 per cent of districts in Afghanistan, the NYT report claims that the insurgents actually control or contest about 61pc area. Since 2017, the Taliban have held more Afghan territory than at any stage since the American invasion in October 2001.
