I cannot believe how so blatantly the Washington Post lies. It says: “The U.S.-led Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad wants to hire an advertising agency to sell the Iraqi public on its plans for a new democratic government, even as U.S. officials and Iraqi leaders struggle to decide whether that government should be formed through elections, caucuses or some combination.”It means the ad agency will try to sell no-elections to the Iraqis. No elections, for the Washington Post, is “plans for a new democratic government.” It would be hilarious if we are not talking about war and occupation. Shirin pointed out this sentence from article: The plan is to “educate the Iraqi population in a non-propaganda style about the electoral process.” Do you see why the media in the US are not government-owned? Who needs government-owned media with the Washington Post around.
