Sunday, August 08, 2004
The intensifying wave of violence in Iraq doesn't seem to be daunting government officials in charge of spreading the good news and stemming the flow of bad news. A Pentagon-sponsored group of Iraqi-Americans is touring U.S. military bases to speak about coalition successes in Iraq. Meanwhile, USAID is scaling back the distribution - here in the U.S. - of casualty reports from its risk assessment contractor in Iraq. NBC military analyst Bill Arkin joins Brooke to discuss the government's "influence operations," and whether they're having any effect.
