Mirror Site

My Core Course colleague, philosopher Mike Heim, pointed out a BBC news story, "Pentagon Boosts 'Media War' Unit." Justifying the existence of these information warriors, Pentagon planners point to the existence of competing Al Qaeda Internet outlets. It is interesting that defense officials also assert that they are only "setting the record straight," which is language a reader of the White House website might recognize as well.

How hollow these assertions from top brass about information dissemination sound this week, given the fact that according to Xeni Jardin's report on NPR, the military is also cracking down on bloggers within its ranks.
