[casi] America plans PR blitz on Saddam

An article written by Tim Reid. Yet another platform to spread propaganda:,,3-418110,00.html

The Bush Administration is to launch a multimillion-dollar PR blitz against Saddam Hussein, using 
advertising techniques to persuade crucial target groups that the Iraqi leader must be ousted.

The campaign will consist of dossiers of evidence detailing Saddam’s breaches of UN resolutions, 
and will be launched this week at American and foreign audiences, particularly in Arab nations 
sceptical of US policy in the region.

The White House is aware that it lacks substantial new intelligence on Saddam’s nuclear programme 
or evidence directly linking Baghdad to the September 11 attacks. But it will build on the contents 
of President’s Bush’s speech made to the UN General Assembly last week, in which he listed Saddam’s 
violations of UN resolutions.

The campaign, which will initially receive over $200 million (£130 million), will be overseen by 
the Office of Global Communications, whose existence will not be formally announced until next

himself the consequences of what you have done. Forgiveness, therefore, always entails a sacrifice.
