UPDATE: A reader, Nancy, sent me an email showing me that Hedges’ publisher is linked to a billionaire named Patrick Lannan. It was this same billionaire who suddenly cancelled the showing of John Pilger’s documentary “The War You Didn’t See” which was rather critical of Obama’s foreign policy. Pilger wrote about that in this article:
I guess Mr. Hedges understands how far he can go with the Lannan Foundation of Santa Fe. Thanks Nancy.
definition of disgusting: Chris Hedges writing regime change propaganda on Egypt.
A reader, DB Schell, forwarded a link to a Common Dreams article written by a stalwart critic of our imperialist campaign, Chris Hedges, “Morsi: Egypt’s New Pharaoh“
As I read the article I could not believe it. Hedges lies in almost every single paragraph in support of Hillary Clinton’s new color revolution in Egypt. It could have been penned by any of the neocon warmongers who are currently writing similar screeds about the “Islamist” constitution and Morsi himself.
To see Chris Hedges siding with the likes of other globalist turncoats like Amy Goodman is just too depressing, but I thought I would shed a little light on Chris’ disinfo effort.

Egypt’s “new Pharaoh.” or Hillary’s Vengeful Scorn?
The MSM is reporting on the “massive uprising” taking place in Egypt in response to President Mohamed Morsi’s recent decrees. The problem is, the protests aren’t any more “massive” than the ones staged by the U.S. state department in Iran a few years ago or those in Russia last year. There’s a reason for that: the state department and Israel are angry at Morsi for mediating a quick ceasefire in Gaza and suddenly we have a handful of professional protesters in Tahrir pretending they are the same people who beat Mubarak.
In fact, elected President Morsi is moving to protect the remaining elected parliament that hasn’t been disbanded by the judiciary, attempting to protect the process of writing the new constitution which is being threatened by the judiciary, and planning to set up new trials for Mubarak and his high ranking aides. The judiciary is well understood to be packed with loyal Mubarak holdovers willing to do whatever they can to keep the status quo online in Egypt.
Jason Ditz is over at AntiWar doing his part to sell the state department sideshow to his readers calling it the start of the “next revolution”.
I’m sure Hillary and the IDF appreciate his efforts but you shouldn’t. Here’s what Hasbara Ditz get’s wrong or leaves out of the story entirely. It’s a substantial amount of information but rather hard to accidentally miss…
