Thread: Wag The Dog Anyone?

  1. #1
    Incredible. The warmongers are shameless. Maybe the worst part is that they seem assured they can lie and never be accountable, that the majority of the US public will never know about the truth. Which suggests an incredible control of the major media there (and an incredible gullibility of the average American?)

    Wonder if anyone will ever be challenged on their bald face lies, General Brooks for instance.



    The Empires new clothes anyone?

    The Beeb has no agenda-it fairly throbs with fairness.

    Who has the definitive goods on this story?

    There is sustenance for all at the propaganda buffet.

    Yes-

    I remember this from before the war-

    They first had to find someone to play the part of "Jessica Lynch"; someone who looked just like the girl described during the storyboarding process....

    The scenario was certainly flexible enough that the right set of circumstances was bound to happen.

    Whether it was preplanned months in advance or cooked up on the scene matters not to me.
    The completely lame execution and lack of a good cover story/explanation is what chaps my knickers.

    When I was in college, a magazine I worked on hoaxed the theft of the Olympic flame ( 1968, Mexico City). We took these half assed pictures outside of Charlottesville that claimed to show the exchange of the real torch for one lit with my Zippo ( the very same lighter I still have today, in fact). We contacted The Washington Post and the Mexican Embassy and offered to run the "real" flame up to D.C. and deliver it to the Mexican Ambassador.
    Much to our amazement they took us completely seriously and we were covered internationally ( I know cause we got hate mail for months from every Latin American country you can name). We had a State Trooper escort and arranged a relay run, just like the real thing from C&#39;ville to Washington. The Mexican Ambassador himself accepted ( we had gotten so cocky we had insisted that only he would do) and the hoax was never exposed for the silly, inept college prank that it was.

    Why couldn&#39;t our military with the help of Hollywood professionals have done just a little bit better than we callow and naive college geeks of 35 yrs. ago?
    Christ, I would have been a consultant for a pittance.
