Of course, propaganda that justifies the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq is not new. But with President Obama’s recent decision to send 30,000 more soldiers to Afghanistan, more propaganda is being issued to generate support for the occupation. Obama’s speech placed Bushian emphasis on the “we didn’t start this” meme, returning 9/11 to the propaganda foreground.

Case in point: CNN has an article today titled “For 9/11 families, finishing job in Afghanistan is personal.” The headline is misleading, since not all 9/11 families have had the same response to that tragedy. For example, The Family Steering Committee found serious deficiencies in the 9/11 Commission Report.

The Associated Press has a more measured headline for its story on the Afghan “surge”: “9/11 families back Afghan surge, but some are wary.”

Interestingly, a New York CBS affiliate expresses no such unanimity from the 9/11 families: “Families of 9/11 victims torn over troop surge.”
