The Soft Mendacity of Changed Information

May 1st, 2003 · No Comments

Jim Henley points to a “magisterial” piece by Cogent Provocateur on the huge WMD (or WSD) stocks that have thus far failed to materialize. Aside from being an excellent piece of independent analysis, the essay is also a useful clearing house of links to various stories on the issue. We are being gradually prepared for a retrofit of the war justifications. This wasn’t about a national security threat, it was about Iraqi Freedom… don’t you remember? Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia.

If you’re not already gripped by a vague and vaguely terrifying sense that you are being systematically lied to, that all the gobs of information you’re collecting in order to form a reasoned opinion about U.S. policy has been carefully selected for your consumption, and that “paranoia” may not be nearly enough… well, bless you. You certainly won’t want to browse over to The Memory Hole, where they catalogue daily changes to yesterday’s truths.
