Pentagon paid PR firm $540mn to make fake terrorist videos

Submitted by: Odio @ 01:02 PM | Sunday, October 2, 2016 | (url: https://www.rt.co...)

The Pentagon paid a UK PR firm half a billion dollars to create fake terrorist videos in Iraq in a secret propaganda campaign exposed by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
PR firm Bell Pottinger, known for its array of controversial clients including the Saudi government and Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochets foundation, worked with the US military to create the propaganda in a secretive operation.

The firm reported to the CIA, the National Security Council and the Pentagon on the project with a mandate to portray Al-Qaeda in a negative light and track suspected sympathizers.

US law prohibits the government from using propaganda on its population, hence the use of an outside firm to create the content.

I thought propaganda was legal again as of 2013 or something like that (obviously it was illegal during the time of the campaign in the article, but that statement is incorrectly present tense)? :weird:

Yes, of course! Hence the name: movement. It moves a certain distance, then it stops, you see? A revolution gets its name by always coming back around in your face. You tried to kill me you son of a bitch... so welcome to the revolution.

Documents show the Pentagon paid $540 million to Bell Pottinger in contracts between 2007 and 2011, with another contract for $120 million in 2006. The firm ended its work with the Pentagon in 2011.

the real news is:
The videos were created to play on Real Player which needs an internet connection to run. The CDs were embedded with a code linking to Google Analytics which allowed the military to track IP addresses that the videos were played on.

Question: is there any terrorism in the world today that is not backed by US? It seems to me that America trains all the terrorists, funds them, eggs them on to commit their attacks, and now it turns out even propagandizes for them. Is America the Great Satan as the Arabs say?
