The U.S. Government Used Psychological Operations On The American Public

Unless you live in a cave, you now realize the massive Iraq war commentary on nearly every television channel perpetrated by former generals and military officials was a fraud. It came out last year that the government paid all of these spokespeople for their "supportive" role. But, now a legitimate news source is going a step further. It is stating the U.S. government attempted Orwellian manipulation of its people using psychological operations - propaganda - intended for our enemies.

Our government seems unwilling to tell the truth about anything. We have a government that uses national security as a reason to classify documents which should be available under the Freedom of Information Act- because they don't want the public to know what dirty little games they play. A government that believes it is above the law and above the sovereign for whom they work. A government that is not accountable to the people who elect them.

Washington is morally bankrupt. And it is not just as it pertains to this economic crisis. If you aren't already, it's time to get active in politics. Write your Congressional representatives. Vote. Be an agent for change. For a government that serves the people of this country in a completely transparent manner. People often feel helpless but that is ridiculous. We have the power of revolution at the voting booth. Our future is what we make of it.
