US media sources are usually servile lapdogs of the US government and big business, but every once in a while, there is a breakthrough… a time when the public is just restless enough to permit the publishing of a super-expose. Today, there is just such an expose in the New York Times.
It is an analysis of the psyops regime of the pentagon against the people of the USA in bringing military analysts into line with official government propoganda to build support for the war and counter negative reports about the war.
Much of the time the military analysts used were also defense contractors or in charge of winning contracts for big corporations that profit from the war, bringing up mind-boggling conflict of interest.
The article does a great job of analyzing apparently 8,000 pages of pentagon papers and uncovering this massive secret combination relationship that sought to truly, “manufacture consent” for this war. It will be interesting to see the public reaction to this article. It will be interesting to see if this will become part of the presidential debates in the future. In any case, for now, it stands as a monumental journalistic effort and is worthy in my mind of a Pulitzer.
