remember dr death and ‘anthrax sally’..?
these were two of the major villains we were led to believe had been foiled by the forces of justice..the americans..
at the time they were both paraded as examples of all that was wrong with the hussein regime…
they were tried/convicted/demonised by the american media..at the behest of the american government…
and it all turns out to have been a crock….just a component of the spin used to justify war/invasion..
how do we know….?…well..after two and a half years…these ‘criminals against humanity’ have been quietly released…and will face no charges..!
this turns out to be yet another indictment of the american media..and their wholesale/unquestioning acceptance of government spin….
“..unfortunately, the mass media, cowed by post-sept. 11 jingoism, showed no stomach for fact-checking the white house’s war propaganda, instead proving alarmingly pliant in simply passing along a distorted portrait that transformed a run-down and hamstrung autocracy into a world-threatening juggernaut. The media still struggles to make themselves accountable…”
and will continue to do so…..
