The Fog of Imperialist Propaganda
Review of the NYT 'Review'
  • The NYT here exhibits the sure knowledge that its client state will protect it from prosecution for propagating the Iraqi WMD lie that facilitated the commission of a war crime.

  • It also exhibits the stupid arrogance that assumes that no one will "get it."

  • To a knowledgeable observer, the historical equivalent of this "review" is the German NSDAP* newspaper Völkischer Beobachter reviewing an exhibition of photographs of Holocaust victims.

* National Socialist German Workers Party, the political party that governed Germany from January 30, 1933 until May 8, 1945, when the Red Army occupied Berlin and established a military government. The building in which the German Wehrmacht surrendered on that date is in the Karlshorst section of Berlin and is now a museum.
