Pentagon launches foreign news websites

By Peter Eisler, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon is setting up a global network of foreign-language news websites, including an Arabic site for Iraqis, and hiring local journalists to write current events stories and other content that promote U.S. interests and counter insurgent messages.

The news sites are part of a Pentagon initiative to expand "Information Operations" on the Internet. Neither the initiative nor the Iraqi site, www.Mawtani.com, has been disclosed publicly.

At first glance, Mawtani.com looks like a conventional news website. Only the "about" link at the bottom of the site takes readers to a page that discloses the Pentagon sponsorship. The site, which has operated since October, is modeled on two long-established Pentagon-sponsored sites that offer native-language news for people in the Balkans and North Africa.

Journalism groups say the sites are deceptive and easily could be mistaken for independent news.

"This is about trying to control the message, either by bypassing the media or putting your version of the message out before others (and) … there's a heavy responsibility to let people know where you're coming from," says Amy Mitchell, deputy director at the Project for Excellence in Journalism. A disclosure on a separate page "isn't something most people coming to the site are likely to see."

8:00 on a friday night and Manscum doesn't have a date again. He has to sit behind his computer

and copy the headlines from the Loony Left bloggers. Poor, poor Manscum, no wonder there's so

much anger in his words. (Have you tried deoderant and mouthwash)??

The ultimate sin, the dreaded typo. Typical Loony Left ploy, when you can't argue a point, find a typo.
"phase" a small child? Dummy, the word is FAZE. (and yes, I have a superior vocabulary).

Your double standard is showing. Typical neocon hypocrite.

The way you support this Administration it's becoming painfully obvious (pun intended) that you actually enjoy taking it up the hershey highway.

Can you really be so stupid as to not recognize the difference between a typo and using the wrong word ??

There was no pun in your sentence. Idiot.

"Typo" means hitting the wrong key(s) by accident, or in the wrong order. "Can you really be so stupid as to" think you can hit "e" instead of "o" on a keyboard by accident? They're on opposite sides of the keyboard! :lol:

Another petty insult combined with an incredibly weak point. Typical neocon.

Yes there was, idiot. The second meaning was the implied pain of anal sex.

Some people just need everything spelled out to them.

Interesting that you're familiar with anal sex pain. A family secret ??

...and you claim to be in your 40s...hmmm...

40 somethings are quite capable of laughing their asses off, especially when we're laughing at the Kool-Aid Girly Boys.

What a sniveling little child you are. Feel like a big man, using such ridiculous name-calling? Absolutely pathetic.

The only thing that's pathetic is your familiarity with **** *** ****.
