Bush Administration Psychological Warfare - 06/23/05 01:37 PM

Against the U.S.?<br><br>This is an interview with (ret.) Colonel Sam Gardiner. It dicusses how the bush admin. used disinformation and psychological warfare against the American public in order to support the war in Iraq. Here's a couple of quotes from the lengthy interview.<br><br>http://democracyrising.us/content/view/259/164/<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>As the war unfolded, I became increasingly uneasy about what was being reported out of the White House, Pentagon and Central Command. I was hearing things that just did not make sense with what I knew and what my intuition was telling me. I began tracking some of the stories. It was just a matter of going over what we were told and connecting that with the truth as it emerged later.<p><hr></blockquote><p><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Gardiner: Kevin, I find it amazing that there is now a growing interest in the marketing the war. There is absolutely no question that the White House and the Pentagon participated in an effort to market the military option. The truth did not make any difference to that campaign. To call it fixing is to miss the more profound point. It was a campaign to influence. It involved creating false stories; it involved exaggerating; it involved manipulating the numbers of stories that were released; it involved a major campaign to attack those who disagreed with the military option. It included all the techniques those who ran the marketing effort had learned in political campaigns.<p><hr></blockquote><p>We have all heard the "hearts and minds" jingle, well that actually comes from the military's psychological operations /warfare motto "Capture their minds and their hearts and souls will follow".<br><br><br>And over 560,000 Americans signed this letter:<br><br>http://www.johnconyers.campaignoffice.co...D-1D32BDCE46B8}<br><br><br>

. . . And Dave hacks up his BVDs whenever articles from Townhall are posted . . . <br><br><blockquote>Where's the links or print to support that? <br>And Don't give me biased sites like townhall and the other right wing rags.<br>Lets see the documentation in mainstream media.</blockquote><br><br>Yet here you are peddling articles from extremistwetdreams.com. . . Wonder if ol' Dave'll be tasting cotton over this one? <br><br>Hmmmmmm? <br><br><br><br>

Yeah, heritagefoundationtownhall is a real bastion of truth and decency. I really enjoyed this gem, and so many countless others<br><br>http://www.townhall.com/columnists/monacharen/mc20030718.shtml<br><br>It even starts out with "liberal democrats" - oh where oh where is the pseudo-outrage of bias in the media! <br><br>But, hey Matt, whatever it takes for you to avoid reality and nevermind the outting of Valerie Plame.<br><br>And in case you forgot, I know how forgetful you can be<br><br>Page 58<br><br>
