New York Times Op-Ed Calls for More Afghan Civilian Deaths

Stanley McChrystal for his directive last July that airstrikes in Afghanistan be authorized only under 'very limited and prescribed conditions.' The op-ed denounced an 'overemphasis on civilian protection' and charged that 'air support to American and Afghan forces has been all but grounded by concerns about civilian casualties.'"
