"No Expenses Spared Domestic Propaganda"

by New York Times 2/20/02

"Global diplomacy as envisioned in the [as of yet unnamed] office will
inject patiotism into the punishing 24-hour, seven-day news cycle officials

"WASHINGTON - President Bush has decided to transform the administration's
temporary wartime communications effort into a permanent office of global
diplomacy to spread a positive image of the United States around the world
and combat anti-Americanism, senior administration officials said today.

[indymedia comment:] "The Ministry of Truth is in place, do you think
someone found a copy of 1984 at the white house and thought it was a
policy document?"

[indymedia comment:] "yeah... this is really frightening... I am extremely
concerned about this matter... i used to think bush was simply dumb,
butnow i'm beginning to wonder if i had underestimated his propensity for
evil. did his dad give him a hit list on his inauguration day or something,
detailing all the "bad guys" he never got to whack because of that pesky
issue known as american public opinion? i guess that issue won't be so
"pesky" anymore. this is sad. really really sad. and so un-american."
