This "Iraqi woman" then showed up on Hardball to swiftboat Cindy. Something about her didn't strike me as being right. There was a passing reference to her being married to an American journalist.
Military intelligence skills and google, don't fail me now, I thought. More on what I found on the flip....
Here you go, from http://www.voanews.com/english/About/fastfacts.cfm
The Voice of America (VOA) is an international multimedia broadcasting service funded by the U.S. government through the Broadcasting Board of Governors.
Draw your own conclusions about what this agency is...and why a wife of one of their "reporters" was put on national tv to attack a grieving mother.
She referenced things that her uncles told her, but never discussed her own experiences in Iraq. She's probably never even lived there, I bet.
AND...Her husband is a "journalist" (cough) for Voice of America (cough cough) that has been a source for purported Bin Laden tapes. See http://www.benadorassociates.com/article/983

So, besides the dishonest attack of my friend with my tax dollars (no doubt the VOA hubby who accompanied her from DC was on the clock), why else do I have my panties in a knot over this? HERE'S WHY - THE VOICE OF AMERICA IS AN INTELLIGENCE OPERATION. IT IS SET UP TO BROADCAST AND "REPORT" PROPOGANDA. UNDER THE SMITH-MUNDT ACT OF 1948 IT IS ILLEGAL FOR VOA REPORTS AND BROADCAST INFO TO BE DISSEMINATED TO THE U.S. Why? Because the U.S. government isn't supposed to lie and spread propoganda to its own people.
Do you think it's a coincidence that the wife of a professional U.S. government propogandist shows up in BF Crawford to attack Cindy? Write MSNBC and Hardball and Matthews and I imagine the other networks and any other news referencing this woman and let's get the truth out there. This truly shows how desparate the Bush Administration has become.
Post links to media that we can all contact to express our concern over this.
Let's also ask members of Congress who give a damn about the rule of law (Waxman, Conyers, Waters, et.al.) to demand an inquiry.
