Propaganda BombBy Emelius at 3:35 PM
The Pentagoon is revisiting whether it should engage in 'Disinformation' by planting false stories in the media. This is nothing new and has been done several times during the Bush administration and it's prosecution of its wars. It appears that this current interest to spread propaganda is to try to win over the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people as well as the people at home. There are several problems with this measure though. It removes trust in what the Pentagoon says, can create confusion on the battle field as to what is really happening, and this will greatly backfire and cast America as a bunch of lying pigs. The short term benefits of such a measure should not outweigh the long term damage. But then again, that is how this White House and Pentagoon think. In the short term.
