"It's not propaganda, it's the truth"

"It's not propaganda, it's the truth" Rumsfeld declared. OK, but leaflets with radio broadcasts, and Information Programs, is this the best we can do? How about some Daffy Goes to War, even some inspirational Soviet and Cuban communist posters, as we do battle on the psyops war front?

I'm confused; When did "propaganda" mean "lies"? I thought it meant "informational campaign."

I would drop a zillion photots of Bay Watch babes to show them the goodies that can come their way, at least via TV, when they become part of a culturally sophisticated world.

Postroad -- I live in America. When do I get mine?

Take that as biting social satire, or an honest question from a horny college student.

Well, I think the first step will have to be to hire Al Quaeda's art director -- that guy who had the Bert-in-the-background concept. Now that dude knows his propaganda--that poster was all over the news and Web in days.
