Private Jessica Lynch & The Making Of An American War Myth

As George W. Bush took to the American airwaves this morning discussing how the United States must win the war in Iraq, the US Military's propaganda regarding former private Jessica Lynch again rang out loud and clear. This entire war has been propagandized by the Bush Administration as a war on terror.

However, the real terrorist is the Bush Administration as well as those within the shadow government of this country who support it.

During a conversation with Illuminist Nick Rockefeller, the late film maker and creator of the brilliant expose on the Federal Reserve Bank and IRS frauds, Aaron Russo, was told that in order to usher in the New World Order, there would be a war in which the United States would be involved; an ongoing war which would become so nebulous, that no clear winner could ever be decided.

A war which would allow the United States to dominate the Middle East. Five years later, this war is still ongoing and with no signs of ending. It is a war for ultimate control over this planet; it is also a war to decide who controls the vast oil reserves in the Middle East. The propaganda machine behind this war also provided Americans with a made for Hollywood scenario in the purported rescue of private Jessica Lynch.

Jessica Lynch became an icon of the war. An all-American heroine, the story of her capture by the Iraqis and her rescue by US special forces became one of the great patriotic moments of the conflict. It couldn't have happened at a more crucial moment, when the talk was of coalition forces bogged down, of a victory too slow in coming.

Her rescue will go down as one of the most stunning pieces of news management yet conceived. It provides a remarkable insight into the real influence of Hollywood producers on the Pentagon's media managers, and has produced a template from which America hopes to present its future wars.

But the American media tactics, culminating in the Lynch episode, infuriated the British, who were supposed to be working alongside them in Doha, Qatar. This Sunday, the BBC's Correspondent programme reveals the inside story of the rescue that may not have been as heroic as portrayed, and of divisions at the heart of the allies' media operation.
