Afghan War Less Popular Than Ever [FAIR]
March 15, 2011
by Peter Hart
The new Washington Post/ABC poll is on the front page of the paper today (3/15/11):
Nearly two-thirds of Americans now say the war in Afghanistan is no longer worth fighting, the highest proportion yet opposed to the conflict, according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll.
The Post‘s write-up includes a lot of strange language about the political situation for the White House: "a growing challenge for President Obama," "a difficult political challenge," "an awkward issue for the president." A more direct way of putting it would be to say that Obama’s war policy is massively unpopular.
A broader point: No matter how unpopular the Afghan War gets, it never quite seems like the right time to hear very many anti-war voices in the corporate media.
