Mainstream media “Authorized Leaks” straight from the top
0
0
Classified information is regularly leaked by government officials who want to make themselves or the government look good. Such “authorized leaks” are rarely prosecuted. For instance, an array of highly classified information about the killing of Osama bin Laden — which made the Obama administration look resolute and militarily effective — was leaked to the press and no one was punished in connection with the leaks.

It tends to be only unauthorized leaks, particularly those that highlight wrongdoing or ineptitude, that the Department of Justice takes an interest in.

US Government media manipulation & lies - The documentary 'Psywar'(2010) explores corporate and government use of propaganda and public relations to manipulate American people.

"It was not bad intelligence that led to the invasion[of Iraq]" concludes Gardiner Colonel Sam Gardiner (USAF, Retired), "It was an orchestrated effort that began before the war, and was meticulously planned to MANIPULATE the PUBLIC"

"What was actally happenning was what the Nuremberg Charter describes as the SINGLE GREATEST CRIME under International Law - the Planning, Preparation, Initiation, or Waging of a War of Agression."

"How did the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave arrive at a place where citizens could be manipulated with such efficiency and on such a massive scale ?"
