"Why did the West ignore the truth about the war in Georgia?" by Mary Dejevsky. The Independent. November 12, 2008.

The US and UK left the impression that Russia was the guilty party
The journalists travelled to the region separately and by different routes. They spoke to different people. But their findings are consistent: Georgia launched an indiscriminate military assault on South Ossetia's main town, Tskhinvali. The hospital was among the buildings attacked; doctors were injured even as they operated.

The timing of the Georgian attack, as of the arrival of the first Russian reinforcements two days later, coincides for the most part with the original Russian version.

That's what we said from the start.
