Zarqawi; Pentagon Psyops

Cannonfire: (Full article)

"As we discussed in a recent post, the Washington Post revealed that the 'threat' posed by this alleged Al Qaeda leader was largely the creation of a military PSYOPS unit. The propaganda campaign created by this unit targeted both the foreign press and the U.S. 'home audience.' Our troops were another target: When they unleashed 'Whiskey Pete' on civilians in Fallujah, they did so in the belief that they were fighting Zarqawi.

On the same day the Post story appeared, Bush -- in a speech -- cited as genuine a Zarqawi letter now known to be fake."
