Manipulating war intelligence is hardly anything new. Frankly, it goes with the territory, if you know the history of wars, connected as they usually are with “perception management” of public opinion, also referred to as “information warfare.”
Editor’s Note: The three Iowa chapters of Veterans for Peace present a nine-city tour of Iowa by former FBI agent and whistleblower Coleen Rowley and retired CIA analyst Ray McGovern. Contains links to four articles. Click on the titles to read the full articles.
Coleen Rowley urged a crowd of about 60 people to ask tough questions of presidential candidates and other federal politicians about foreign policy and the erosion of the country’s founding principles of citizens’ rights.
“Right now they have advisory people telling them how to win and what to say,” she said tonight at the University of Dubuque. “They need to have people asking them hard questions and pushing them.”
