PROPAGANDA: Excerpts

PROPAGANDA:  Excerpts 

IRAQ:
Col. Sam Gardiner – “The Enemy is Us”
“One of the first items that made me uneasy was when I heard we were encountering “terrorist death squads.” I was very familiar with the Iraq military forces. There were no terrorist death squads. It became obvious the Pentagon wanted us to connect Iraq with 9/11. Terrorists did 9/11. There are terrorists in Iraq. Iraq must have been behind 9/11.”
“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.”
False Stories or Exaggerated Ones:
“Gardiner: In the summer of 2003, we know from the Downing Street Memo that the Administration was talking about justifying a war by arguing that Iraq was the nexus of terrorism and WMD.”
“The terrorism argument was what propaganda literature would refer to as the big lie. The Administration’s objective was to make enough arguments connecting Iraq to terrorism and Bin Laden that the American people would believe Iraq was behind the 9/11 attacks. They used a technique called the excluded middle. Iraq supports terrorists. The attacks were by terrorists. Iraq must been behind the 9/11 attacks.”
“A New York Times reporter was told by the Administration that Iraq was buying excess quantities of atropine to get ready for chemical warfare. It turns out the quantities were consistent with the Iraq use of the substance for routing medical purposes.”
“The Deputy Secretary of Defence Paul Wolfowitz told the Council on Foreign Relations that Iraq had the capability to attack US computers. They did not.”

To Prevaricate Churchill:
To ad lib GW Bush:We shall lie to the end. We shall lie in Libya, we shall fabricate on the seas and oceans, we shall bull shit with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall lie on whatever the cost may be. We shall prevaricate the beaches, we shall fantasize on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall tell untruths on the hills and on the dales; we shall never surrender the truth!
