Now we officially know the 'news' is part of a systemic 'information war' strategy ** 'public diplomacy' or 'strategic information' (http://www.burbankdigest.com/node/386}
it's clearer than ever that geostrategic documents and analyses not intended for public consumption, are essential: below, two by Obama adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski
The Brzezinski National Security memorandum below followed the COINTELPRO which destroyed the ability of the Black national liberation movement led by the Black Panther Party [BPP] to function by years of dirty tricks and murdering more than 30 of its leaders. But this gangster op. was unable to kill the struggle against national oppression and passion for liberation. * Resistance and revolution of its savagely oppressed subjects everywhere in the world it dominates is the white supremacist capitalist system's greatest fear. The revolutionary movement against it stunned and terrified its arrogant rulers because the BPP message and actions mobilized millions far beyond the US ghetto and barrio reservations.
Brzezinski's strategy spells out tactics you'll read about below, including putting 'Black faces in high places', creating a Black pacification army with the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton etc., and a bourgeois intellectual academic and cultural army including Manning Marable, Cornell West, to reach beyond the usual 'turn the cheek' ministers, to intensify hostile class divisions within the US Black nation, as well as exacerbate racist divisions especially in the working class.
This strategy reached full-bloom with Obama, 'house negro' supreme hired to execute the bipartisan US National Security Strategy for global domination necessitating the conquest or cooptation of major capitalist rivals and political resistance (aka"terrorism") - whom Brzezinski 'advises'.
