The propaganda tale of private lynch

The terrible story of Private Jessica Lynch shocked the United States: she walked into an ambush and fought like a lioness. She was hurt and captured by the Iraqis who tortured and raped her but the Special Forces freed her and took her back to the United States where she was acclaimed as a heroine. Presented during a press conference at the Central Command with the support of an allegedly “real” video, this story – completely made up by a communication office, the Rendon Group – was later developed in distorted articles published by the New York Times and the Washington Post: a brainwashing operation to make a neo-colonial expedition look like a glorious feat.
