Follow this link to an article in Spiegel Online about plans to investigate what really happened in the brief war between Russia and Georgia. Many people are beginning to think that Saakashvili lied about the sequence of events. The story also shows that Georgia might not be quite the democracy that our side paints it to be.
Perhaps it will become clearer that early reports one gets from the U.S. media are heavily tainted by influence form our government in Washington.
It is also clear that to get contrary information one must read news sources from outside this country. I have not yet seen this story reported by U.S. media.
