Dirty Tricks

Laura Rozen at War and Piece has an interesting story to relate on covert efforts to plant pro-Bush propaganda abroad in the world. Going on what the modus operandi of these operations appears to be, we should be looking for right-wing think-tanks and publications which seem to spontaneously pop into existence, have suspiciously easy access to Republican Party loyalists, and possess murky sources of funding.

So we've nothing to worry about in Ireland, then.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.
