Pentagon Challenged on Lynch and Tillman – New York Times

This one might stir some people up. Is propaganda ever OK?

Propaganda has been a tool of governments and organizations to stir emotions as long as there have been people to care. Did anyone protest in the 40’s when a movie was made about the heroics of Audie Murphy, or when other soldiers and sailors who had been in the news were sent on promotional tours for war bonds?

If the country is engaged in a war, how far can/should the government go to keep people behind the war effort?

For those that argue for complete and total transparency, can it work on the macro level where lives are at stake?
