“The results of the inquiry … confirm that the Pentagon under Donald Rumsfeld made a concerted effort … to build and sustain public support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The inquiry found that from 2002 to 2008, Rumsfeld’s Pentagon organized 147 events for 74 military analysts. The inquiry confirmed that Rumsfeld’s staff frequently provided military analysts with discussion points before their network appearances.”
Question for the military: Did they parrot the administration’s lies or actually offer expert commentary? Either way it’s unethical, but if they spread lies it’s also treasonous.
