Language doesn't just reflect your understanding of reality: it SHAPES it. The Pentagon (and its pet, the State Department) knows this and creates language to mislead us about what it is actually doing. First I and then MICHAEL PARENTI (in a fine talk from the 1990s) expore how it works. Of particular interest: Parenti's debunking of the "Gaddafi-is-a-menace" rhetoric, ca. 1990. (The government then forgot about Gaddafi for 20 years. Then he suddenly became a menace again.)
This is a rerun of NWN #10 (April 2008)

Thanks to Sally Soriano and People's Video-Audio for the Parenti recording.
Music added: John McCutcheon, "Let's Pretend";
David Rovics, "What If You Knew?"
