You don't see any pitfall to that? YOU can discern the real truth of the larger context and are infallible in your capacity to do so. Perhaps a more humble approach is to focus on what is indisputably true--the human experience in a given situation, and trusting the audience to come to their own conclusions about the larger context having been informed by the experience you have to provided to them.

If you do not give them all the information, then any conclusion the audience comes to is necessarily incomplete. That is the point. All art has a viewpoint. All art is manipulative. The difference is merely where you steer them.

Tamte seems completely tone deaf here when he dismisses much of why this battle was noteworthy in the first place as 'sensationalism' or 'a distraction'. That dismissal and non inclusion is itself a value judgement.

Ask why these particular people from this particular operation were chosen to 'engender empathy for American troops in the field'.
