Propaganda Hypes Up Zarqawi's Importance
MSNBC: The US military is conducting a propaganda campaign to magnify the role of al-Qaeda in Iraq-- specifically the role of Abu al-Zarqawi, according to internal military documents and officers familiar w/ the program. The effort has raised his profile in a way that some military intelligence officials believe may have overstated his importance and helped the Bush admin tie the war to the organization deemed responsible for the Sept 11th attacks. For the past 2 yrs, US military leaders have been using Iraqi media and other outlets in Baghdad to publicize Zarqawi's role in the insurgency. The documents explicitly list the "US Home Audience" as one of the targets of a broader propaganda campaign." Imagine all that, will ya? Americans AND Iraqis have been lied to (about a 1 legged guy who was already declared dead in 03) by the never ending Bush lie machine.
