Pentagon PR

My mother was head of al-qaeda at her old folks home, and #2 in the al-qaeda organization worldwide, until she was killed in a drone attack by the US Government.

Of course this is nonsense, but such fanciful stories are easy to write, and the amazing thing is how often people will pause as they consider the story, wondering at the veracity.  Try this:  tell people that about your mom, and see how long before they grin at the absurdity of it.

The fact they are not dismissing it as you say it, the fact they have to wonder for whatever amount of time, tells you just how absurd our society has become.

One reason is the half billion a year the pentagon alone spends on misinforming us.
