Ministry of Disinformation

We're being spun - not like that's any news. What is objectionable is that lives are being lost, whether it's guns to Mexico with Gunwalker, or the latest Al Qaeda attack on our Embassy.
By now, you’ve probably heard that U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens, and three other American diplomats were murdered in Benghazi, Libya, coincidentally on September 11th, 2012. I say “coincidentally” because the U.S. media is weaving quite a tall tale in order to prevent any connection to President Obama’s foreign policy, or lack thereof.

How is this fairy tale woven?

Media outlets in the U.S. want you to believe that a Youtube video, posted two months ago, insulted the Muslim religion so much it’s frothing adherents had no choice but to go on a murderous rampage. The video is allegedly a trailer for a movie that apparently doesn’t really exist, performed by actors who swear they didn’t utter the lines in the video, which had offensive dialog dubbed into the clip, then was translated and re-dubbed into arabic with even more offensive dialog, by a man who doesn’t seem to exist, but is a Jewish/Coptic Israeli/Egyptian. The backlash from the video caused immediate protests (two months later) that magically turned violent.
This storyline is so perfect, that any criticism of arming the Muslim Brotherhood to overthrow dictator Mo Gaddafi during the “Arab Spring” is blasphemously “politicizing” this tragic, but predictable outcome for political gain. This is particularly true if you are applying for the job of President and believe you can provide a better outcome.
As they say, read the whole thing. The foreign press is reporting a far different story than what our Administration lapdogs deem it necessary for us to know. Like the internet doesn't exist, and we cannot access any information other than what they want us to see and hear.

We're being spun again. How do you like it?

I don't like it any more this time than I did the last time!
But then, people like you and I are in the minority, as probably 90% of Americans don't even realize what's going on!
