Phil’s comment to Spook86’s post got me to thinking. I thought about it for a long time, and when I had thought about it long enough I started this blog.
I have come to believe that the solution to our information war and public diplomacy problems lie outside of government. We have seen how effective the liberal dominated news and entertainment media in the US is at disseminating its message globally. There is no way that a government agency operating within the political, bureaucratic and financial limitations inherent in any gov’t program can successfully compete against private media.
The DoD Public Affairs Officers are never going to be allowed to do what must be done. Psychological Operations are being conducted to undermine the will of the American people to resist the Islamic jihad. The Democrats will never allow DoD to conduct domestic counter-PSYOPS. So who is going to take that up?
