Were McCain, Reid, Lieberman et al victims of Army Psyops..
This is an article that originated in the Rolling Stone, yes the same Rolling Stone that brought you the McChrystal article about a year ago, apparently General Caldwell was utilizing the resources of the psyops army folks to try to influence these members of the appropriations committee and other dignitaries to commit more money and troops to Afghanistan..
Saw Jack Reed on the TV last night, and he said he did not feel manipulated, but how do you know????...
Anyways more efforts by the military to continue their out of control spending and the continued robbing and raping of the taxpayer...
The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan is calling for an investigation into charges that an army unit trained in psychological operations was improperly ordered to manipulate American senators to get more money and troops for the war.
A senator allegedly targeted said Thursday that he’s confident there will be a review of the facts, but played down the idea that he was manipulated.
The staff of Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, head of the effort to train Afghan security forces, ordered the information operations unit to compile profiles, voting records and other information on visiting lawmakers to leverage in a campaign to get more assistance, said a story Thursday on Rolling Stone’s website. It says the campaign also improperly targeted the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, and others.
All of this stems from this article..
One might think that they need to sponsor about 20 NASCAR Entries, to help repair this damage..
The U.S. Army illegally ordered a team of soldiers specializing in "psychological operations" to manipulate visiting American senators into providing more troops and funding for the war, Rolling Stone has learned – and when an officer tried to stop the operation, he was railroaded by military investigators.
The orders came from the command of Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, a three-star general in charge of training Afghan troops – the linchpin of U.S. strategy in the war. Over a four-month period last year, a military cell devoted to what is known as "information operations" at Camp Eggers in Kabul was repeatedly pressured to target visiting senators and other VIPs who met with Caldwell. When the unit resisted the order, arguing that it violated U.S. laws prohibiting the use of propaganda against American citizens, it was subjected to a campaign of retaliation.

Re: Were McCain, Reid, Lieberman et al victims of Army Psyops..
You realize what this means, of course...
McCain is free to wheel right back around to being against wars he was for, and remind everybody how often a military organization captures him and brainwashes him. The right wing, in its new paleoconservative, isolationist guise, will settle into the mantra of "why aren't all the wars we started over, they're all Obama's fault..." and McCain can once again run in exactly the opposite of his 2008 self.
I can't wait for him to explain how somehow the phrase "100 years if necessary" was repeated over and over again.... how he woke up in his hotel room thinking it was being whispered through the pillows in a tinny, recorded-sounding voice...
Then he'll be the hero of two wars for being captured and brainwashed.
I predict good times coming out of the next McCain campaign, whatever he's running for, health permitting.
