New Pentagon PR war

Because if you can't make the occupations work in reality, maybe you can make them work in virtual reality. Just read this on Kos:
Pentagon memo reveals launch of new PR war

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon is buttressing its public relations staff and starting an operation akin to a political campaign war room as Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld faces intensifying criticism over the Iraq war.

In a memo obtained by the Associated Press, Dorrance Smith, assistant secretary of defense for public affairs, said new teams of people will "develop messages" for the 24-hour news cycle and "correct the record."


The plan would focus more resources on so-called new media, such as the Internet and Weblogs.

Emphasis added. Does this mean we're going to have more drive-by Pentagon propaganda here on Internal Monologue? I hope it's better than their previous pathetic attempt.
