How the U.S. government uses its media servants to attack real journalism

• Glenn Greenwald (Salon)

Entitled "the CIA's Secret Sites in Somalia," the article documented that the CIA uses and effectively controls a secret prison in Mogadishu, where foreign nationals who are rendered off the streets of their countries (at the direction of the U.S.) are taken (along with Somali nationals) to be imprisoned with no due process and interrogated (by U.S. agents).  Although Somali government agents technically operate the facility, that is an obvious ruse: "US intelligence personnel pay the salaries of intelligence agents and also directly interrogate prisoners" and are "there full-time," Scahill reported.  On Democracy Now on Wednesday, the International Committee of the Red Cross confirmed it has no knowledge of this secret prison.

Jeremy Scahill's personal synopsis of how the current administration  is spinning the story and continuing the previous administrations agenda is filled with Ron Paul speak.(if you will) Mr. Scahill voices nearly word for word many of Ron Paul's talking points of late. He mentioned "blow back" for heaven's sake. 

I need to listen to this news program again. The other members in the group, I am not so sure of their intent.  But then again.  I need to listen to this program again.

Thanks for publishing this "bit of news".

Yup, a few days old and not a peep out of the lamestream news on one of 2011's biggest stories. An accidental oversight I'm sure.  Somehow the story managed to circulate on the Internet however.  I guess this will be one of Project Censored's "Top 25 censored news stories of 2011."
