    Yes, the sockies lie. And their actions are scripted to generate hoaxes.

    One typical hoax is the claim that the Manning leaks killed people in Afghanistan and Pakistan. That gets flogged all over the Internet. This is a reality-twister, driving artificial paranoia -- fear that cross-sexed America-haters are sabotaging military operations and the War on Terror.

    Another major hoax has gone on for a decade built around a claim that torture was necessary to stop terrorism, then augmented with lies saying that finding UBL in Pakistan was generated by information extracted by using torture.

    Evidence goes all the other way: in fact the key identification of the courier to UBL was "lost" in a box of Moroccan paper records at the office in Pakistan. When Obama banned torture, reviewing those boxes led directly to the courier and then to UBL. Torture made no contribution.

    GOP = hoaxes.

    Sockpuppets = 8-cent a posting hired liars, supporting the GOP hoaxes.
