U.S. GOVERNMENT SPENT OVER $500M ON FAKE AL-QAEDA PROPAGANDA VIDEOS THAT TRACKED LOCATION OF VIEWERS

My guess is that even I would be shocked if we knew the extent of America’s ongoing PSYOP with regard to media.

Via: Independent:

A former contractor for a UK-based public relations firm says that the Pentagon paid more than half a billion dollars for the production and dissemination of fake Al-Qaeda videos that portrayed the insurgent group in a negative light.

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism reported that the PR firm, Bell Pottinger, worked alongside top US military officials at Camp Victory in Baghdad at the height of the Iraq War. The agency was tasked with crafting TV segments in the style of unbiased Arabic news reports, videos of Al-Qaeda bombings that appeared to be filmed by insurgents, and anti-insurgent commercials – and those who watched the videos could be tracked by US forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; did these carefully crafted "reports" actually result in any real "bad guys" getting caught, or just "sold" for a ransom, when people with whom they normally did business, got angry with them, for whatever reason, and thought turning them over to Iraqi or American military would net them a nice reward?!?

And please remember: as reported at HRW, we still have 41 prisoners of war at Guantanamo, and some of them still without a trial date:
