Just three days after Malaysian flight MH-17 was shot down near the Ukraine Russian border, Secretary of State Kerry had all the answers. Renowned former CIA analyst Ray McGovern is convinced the secretary of state did not so much inform so much as “advance some propaganda objective.” It was the old Soviet Union that insisted propaganda was truth, not the USA. McGovern explains that in this new age, what works is “who lies first.” Was freedom of the media a victim of that tragic shooting down? Following Bush’s lies to go to war in Iraq and the lies around Syria’s alleged use of sarin gas in 2013, is this a new pattern for America?
