1. Well that's true... but then CIA psyops work in every newsroom....

(on edit) ACTUALLY... you can all just ignore all of this.... it is really just a bit of comment on Mockingbird. Somthing that has always fascinated me.

The OSI was wound up after it was exposed in the NYT... it then became the OSP Office Of Strategic Plans... which seems to have done the same thing. This is PNACer Douglas Feith's baby, which fit like the OSI snugly under Rummy's wing.

So yes Mockingbird on steriods.. But as I point out below there is no reason to beleive Mockingbird was ever shut down.


Original post follows...

After Watergate a whole bunch of papers were released about

Operation Paperclip or Operation Butterfly (On edit you had it in your intro Mockingbird!!!! Duh!!!) but basically it was an operation - long running - that had placed operatives in practically every important newsroom in the country. Many in senior positions.

The papers were damning because the had information on how much it cost to retain a NYT reporter and had comments about how having a reporter on the payroll was cheaper than having a hooker.

Of course the revelations didn't get a lot of airplay for obvious reasons - and there is no reason to think the operation was ever wound up.

How else do you explain Judith Miller.

Just another fine day in a country they call America I guess :)
