(***UPDATE*** True to my word, the pictorial I call “Ode to Liberal Fraud” is now posted at the end of this article. Years in the making (ok… about 10 minutes) and at a cost of thousands of dollars (ok… it didn’t cost anything), the final work is completed at great personal risk (ok… I got poo on my hand) … art critics, be kind… I’m so vulnerable.)
Jeremy Scahill’s role as propagandist for the “left” is becoming clearer by the day.
In a short little offering of pro-war campaign copy he cobbled together for The Nation magazine, “anti-Empire” reporter Jeremy Scahill is able to defend the use of drones, reduce the number of civilians they have killed, and help promote the falsehood about the Pakistan Taliban attacking us in New York (and therefore generate support for the Clinton/Obama desire to “surge” into Pakistan) … all in one shot, in just a few paragraphs. Karl Rove, eat your heart out.
Now I am not saying it isn’t ham-handed and obvious propaganda, but Scahill gets the job done quickly, in few words, so he can get back to pimping his book tour or picking out his new Green Zone dwelling, where-ever that may be.
You know, I might not have been completely convinced that Scahill was a globalist’s tool until I read this little gem. But now, there is no question. And he is still a douche bag.
