"Failed special forces rescue missions and allegations of covering up friendly fire deaths have dogged the US military for decades."

I have chosen this article from the the British website www.telegraph.co.uk I think it is a good example of negative feelings towards America and the war in Iraq. The article is about friendly fire cover ups that the USA have done in order to take blame away from themselves from their own wrong doings and mistakes. This is a classic example of America's attempts to maintain a respected international image. Having taken the role of a 'world police', mild forms of media censorship regarding international conflicts has been necessary for America to uphold its reputation. When information like this is leaked it becomes easy for countries to criticise America's foreign policy, and therefore is significant as a way to understand how America is viewed.
