Raw Story Investigation: Pentagon Domestic Propaganda

April 20, 2008 The New York Times broke the news that the Pentagon (and members of the Bush Administration) had been coordinating with retired military analysts on talking points to cover in their media appearances, as part of a ‘psyop’ on the American public to sell the ‘post-9/11 world’, the ‘War on Terror’, Guantanamo, torture, and the continued occupation of Iraq. These ‘analysts’, many of whom had undisclosed conflicts of interest such as financial ties to defense contractors, appeared over 4500 times in the media, as part of this campaign. The media outlets responsible for participating in the program- which includes the NY Times- have generally not acknowledged any fault on their own part, and some commentators attempted to spin the psyop as simply the Pentagon telling their side of things. A DOD Inspector General investigation found no wrong doing on the part of the Pentagon, but that report was later found to be so flawed, it was retracted and removed from the DOD’s website. More recently, RawStory.com has published the results of its own investigation into the program, which has uncovered further evidence, as well as indications that the Pentagon’s efforts to manipulate public opinion are continuing under the Obama Administration.

911Truth.org has updated the Truth Statement for 2009- this statement caused a great deal of controversy when Glenn Beck reported that Obama Green Jobs Advisor Van Jones- along with around 100 other luminaries and nearly 50 9/11 victims family members- had endorsed its call for an investigation into questions that were ignored or inadequately addressed by the 9/11 Commission. The new statement is open for endorsement, if you support full disclosure regarding 9/11.

Bradblog Breaks Down Sibel Edmonds’ Bombshell Deposition

August 8, 2009 Sibel Edmonds gave 4 hours of testimony, naming members of Congress, and State and Defense Dept officials as being complicit in treason, trafficking in arms and nuclear secrets, money laundering, bribery, blackmail, obstruction of justice, cover up and more. The 4 hours of video and well over 200 pages of transcript are a lot to wade through, but Brad Friedman is taking the time to pull out some of the devastating details, that so far no ‘mainstream’ media, and only a few alt/indy media, have seen fit to report on, and no member of Congress or US government official has commented on…
