Newspeak 1.0

We are at war with Eurasia. We have always been at war with Eurasia.

The US defence department has set up a new unit to better promote its message across 24-hour rolling news outlets, and particularly on the internet.

The Pentagon said the move would boost its ability to counter "inaccurate" news stories and exploit new media.
The Bush administration does not believe the true picture of events in Iraq has been made public, the BBC's Justin Webb in Washington says.

The administration is particularly concerned that insurgents in areas such as Iraq have been able to use the web to disseminate their message and give the impression they are more powerful than the US, our correspondent says.

War on Terror??? Baloney! This mess is causing more Terror than it's eliminating. Just ask the wife of that Army Private from Colorado who got his volunteer enlistment extended for a year, four days before his discharge date and had to hear from her husband that he's not coming home -- He's Going BACK!
