Truth and Deception at the Pentagon

 

 

"All's fair in love and war" -- so says the anonymous old proverb. But it's often seized by any country at war, and it's the source of a current debate at the Pentagon. After September 11th, military planners opened the Office of Strategic Influence -- to sway international public opinion toward the United States, but the office was closed 6 months later when it was revealed as a place from which to plant fabricated stories in the media. The Pentagon is still thinking of using the same tactics to win over hearts and minds in Iraq and throughout the Middle East Deception on the battlefield is a timeless tool. But when the military begins using it on the media, as well as its enemies, some say it erodes the credibility of U.S. armed forces both at home and abroad.
