Congress Should Probe U.S. Propaganda in Iraqi Press

Now that the Pentagon has admitted to subverting the fragile efforts to build democracy in Iraq, will Congress begin an investigation of how this happened? The first question should be who in the Pentagon decided that he or she had the right to put words in the mouth of the Prophet Muhammad.
12/01: No single episode, not the torture pictures nor the Haliburton ripoffs, so perfectly captures the betrayal of the U.S. model of a free society as our military covertly buying the Iraqi press. The disgrace is compounded by dragging the Prophet Mohammed into this terminally deceitful enterprise.
