False news stories on Afghanistan and Iraq

Global News Matrix has an item worth reading in full.

Global News Matrix relates that Colonel Sam Gardiner (USAF, Ret.) has identified 50 false news stories created and leaked by a secretive White House propaganda department.

Some examples:

Iraqi agents meeting with 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta
Iraq's possession of chemical and biological weapons.
Iraq's purchase of nuclear materials from Niger.
The rescue of Pvt. Jessica Lynch.
The surrender of a 5,000-man Iraqi brigade.
Iraq executing Coalition POWs.
Iraqi soldiers dressing in US and UK uniforms to commit atrocities.
WMDs moved to Syria....

Every one of these stories was false.

The White House Coalition Information Center was set up in November 2001. The CIC used "the plight of women in Afghanistan" as an excuse for attacking Afghanistan.

Laura Bush : "Only the terrorists and the Taliban threaten to pull out women's fingernails for wearing nail polish."

Cherie Blaire: "In Afghanistan, if you wear nail polish, you could have your nails torn out."

London's 15 Psychological Operations Group was the UK equivalent of the CIC.


"Intelligence sources" provided unsourced allegations that Iraq and Al Qaeda were behind the anthrax letters.

In December 18, the White House confessed that it was "increasingly looking like" the anthrax came from a US military installation.
