Department of Defense Usurps Department of State Power!

I am not saying that that having the Department of State or Department of Defense "paying" a contractor to write and print good news about USA for Iraqi's is a good thing or a bad thing just that WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO FREEDOM OF THE PRESS?!

Isn't this the job of the free press of the world?

I guess Haliburton must have a marketing department that has figured out a new way to make money off of this Bush League War

US to Fund Pro-American Publicity in Iraqi Media

by Karen DeYoung and Walter Pincus

The Defense Department will pay private U.S. contractors in Iraq up to $300 million over the next three years to produce news stories, entertainment programs and public service advertisements for the Iraqi media in an effort to "engage and inspire" the local population to support U.S. objectives and the Iraqi government.
