16. Johann Hari: You Are Being Lied to About Pirates

That hijacked(?) Iranian ship, Gryphon Air, the CIA and the "Long War"
The web site carrying a story on the "hijacked" Iranian ship, the Long War Journal is mobbed up with the Weekly Standard, the National Review and the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies--a Pentagon front.

Notice the name of this site, the Long War Journal?

Straight out of former Sec'y of Defense Rumsfeld's mouth.

Some of their news consists of "open source" reporting, meaning they read other's work and then put their own spin on it and print it, just like former Whte House Stenographer Judith Miller.

One of the company's that support LWJ, is Gryphon Airlines, which has a number of "former" military and intelligence types on its board and flies into Iraq and the ME.

Rendition flights?

It's weird, they list the resume of their key people, but NOT the names. Why?

The HDQ's of Gryphon Air in in Vienna, VA, less than 20 miles away from Spook Central, Langley, VA and the CIA.

Do a WHOIS search of another of their sponsors, Vigilant Strategic Services and you'll find that it's related to Gryphon Air.

Cozy as bedbugs, these front companies are.
