History of False Information

Government information put forth for political gain and public support is an old game. In my lifetime there was the Gulf of Tonkin incident which led to a reason for escalation in Vietnam. The weapons of mass destruction claim that led to the second Iraq war these are examples of misinformation by a political party for public support of policy. There was a government official who said this of the CIA. “They don’t know as much as they say they know. They don’t tell you what they do know and then they lie”. The fact the neo-con complex is still a factor in government give pause to any argument about national security.
