James Bamford, a best selling author, reports in the “Rolling Stone” on the “The Man Who Sold the War”. He reports that the Pentagon and CIA’s hiring of the Rendon Group to sell the world on the plan to conquer Iraq. And guess what? One of the chief media conduits for the sales job was none other than Judith Miller.
It’s a fascinating story and one that should alarm every American. What in the world are our government agencies doing hiring marketing firms for the purpose of lying to us? And it’s not just the Bush administration, the Rendon Group was hired during the Clinton presidency. It is, if I’m not mistaking, a specific violation of law for our government to produce propaganda.
Our political system has rotted to its core; and that rot is shared by those media, religious, labor, and political organizations, and they are very many, that have abetted the corruption of our political system.
