When "Doves" Lie
The New York Times plays down anti-war opinion
But in its news coverage in the period before the invasion began on March 19, the New York Times played down opposition to war and exaggerated support for George W. Bush's Iraq policy--in ways that ranged from questionable to dishonest.
The New York Times whitewashes Bush’s lies about Iraq
"You could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple hundred dollars a month."
Scott Ritter Press Conference at MacDuffie School
"Some in the Media are extremely complicit in this..."
"That was deliberate on their [New York Times] part to misinform the American people."
In the wide ranging and hard hitting press conference, Ritter described and denounced major media's role in deceiving the American people into war. Ahmed Chalabi concocted lies that US neoconservatives used to justify war, such as claims that Iraq was involved with 9/11. The New York Times and PBS's Frontline misinformed the American people. Ritter showed how neo-conservatives tried to use war to implement the pre- war Project for the New American Century. He describes in detail how The New York Times relied on Chalabi, ignored evidence to the contrary and failed its responsibility to corroborate Chalabi's claims. Now, even Chalabi admits he was lying in order to topple Iraqi regime. "The CIA's number one objective in Iraq was never disarmament, it was always the elimination of Saddam Hussein."
A lesson in 'Disappearing the dead'
02/27/04: (Asia Times) When planning war, military officials have various targets: enemy combatants, their support forces, the surrounding civilian population, and their national infrastructure. But there are other targets as well, although these are not always discussed publicly. Among the most important of these is public opinion, both the world at large, and the highest priority - that of their own public. This holds true especially in a democracy, when one is fighting a war of choice - as in invading another country - instead of fighting a war of national survival.
