about

Weapons of Mass Deception reveals:

  • How the Iraq war was sold to the American public through professional P.R. strategies.

  • "The First Casualty": Lies that were told related to the Iraq war.

  • Euphemisms and jargon related to the Iraq war, e.g. "shock and awe," "Operation Iraqi Freedom," "axis of evil," "coalition of the willing," etc.

  • "War as Opportunity": How the war on terrorism and the war on Iraq have been used as marketing hooks to sell products and policies that have nothing to do with fighting terrorism.

  • "Brand America": The efforts of Charlotte Beers and other U.S. propaganda campaigns designed to win hearts overseas.

  • "The Mass Media as Propaganda Vehicle": How news coverage followed Washington''s lead and language.

The book includes a glossary — "Propaganda: A User''s Guide" — and resources to help Americans sort through the deceptions to see the strings behind Washington''s campaign to sell the Iraq war to the public.
