Oops... Trying to forget something?
This is extremely interesting, because it corresponds with just about all my prejudices against the U.S. (as a european of course).

I was watching the CBC last night, and one of the lead stories was the head of the RCMP apologizing to Maher Arar. A lot of people are demanding the resignation of the RCMP cheif.

It is interesting to me that the story seems non-existant here in the US. I would think it would be pretty relevant to the debate recently going on in the Senate.

Where is that Liberal bias when you need it.

Were Newsweek lent on, or do they just lean on themselves to save the 'powers that be' the trouble?

I loved the US on my two visits, great people, fascinating places, but this sort of sheltering from reailty does us all harm.

I'll have to ask my cousin and her hubby, when they come over from Bloomer Wisconsin next month! ;-)

Last year they had a big cover feature called "Dream On, America". It was about how, unlike what many Americans still like to think, few of the world's citizens aspire their country to be like the USA anymore and the reasons behind that shift.

This ran in all editions around the world, except in the US; the only place where running it could possibly make a difference.

In the following post on this blog, about the photographer herself, you said:

"But the substance of her work is style. Her style is that of a chameleon. At its core it's about surface."

When I read that, I thought about this post, and then couldn't stop laughing.

Perhaps the Afghanistan cover is intended to pander to the prejudices of non-Americans? Or maybe it reflects the prejudices of Newsweek's editors, which are unpopular with many Americans.
