Spreading disinformation is lot like herding sheep. And the CIA/NSA have used classic sheep herding techniques to establish their disinfo outlets. Here's how.
I don't know if you ever did any actual sheep work, but it's really straightforward. Approach some sheep in a field and put them under a little pressure. They begin to move away.
Come a bit closer. Now they're looking left and right for an exit. Come closer still. Now they're desperate for a way out. That's when you have a friend open a gate. And lo and behold, the relieved sheep flow out through the open gate like a river seeking lower ground. You can herd them from field to field -and they will always move in the direction which eases the pressure. Get it?
The information managers use the same technique. First -clamp down the media so there is no outlet for the truth. That's how you create the field around the sheep. Now they are boxed in. Then put them under a little presure -like say... 9/11. Now, you got them looking for an outlet. An outlet which eases the pressure. Any outlet.
So you provide one. And hey presto, They head straight for it.
We all feel the need for some media outlet to reflect our world view. It's a need which has been ruthlessly exploited to create many faux news outlets. One distinguishing characteristic is that they tell us what we want to hear -and then some. They rant. They rave. It's called emotional release. Or it's called -letting the peasants blow off some steam. And it's relatively harmless in political terms. Especially when the little venting of truth is mixed liberally with plenty of confusing disinformation.
As an investigator, I know this. So I wait. And I have. Waited. Waited until they discredit themselves. Which whoever is behind WhatReallyHappened has just done.
Many know I have written extensively about so-called 'Saddam before. Back when he was 'captured': Saddamplicity. Then recently I wrote new articles about the fake 'Saddam'.
The first: Liar Liar, Saddam's Pants on Fire on Friday, May 20, 2005; and the second: Crazy Saddam to Dismiss Lawyers -Prediction on Monday, May 23, 2005.
The very next day, May 24th -Michael Rivero at WhatReallyHappened claimed that by sheer coincidence: "earlier today a reader sent me the following image." You'll never guess? It was an image of Saddam. I knew then, that WhatReallyHappened were about to provide the disinfo crew response to what I had just written.
And they blew it.
First, to bolster his street cred, Rivero claimed to be having entirely coincidental new doubts about Saddam because a 'reader' had just emailed him two photos showing 'New Saddam's' teeth were uneven -whereas 'Old Saddam's' teeth were perfect. [Pic] Then later that day he reveals the true reason for raising the issue with an update to say that more research has 'discovered' another photo showing that 'New 'Saddam's' teeth are perfect after all. [Pic] So they must be the same guy. Voila! [Article]
Now I'd like to draw your attention to something. Nowhere. Not Ever. Not once, even, have I ever referred to 'Saddam's teeth. Go check. From the article published hours after they supposedly caught him, I wrote about half a dozen, and I never mention the teeth once. Never.
There's a good reason why. I already knew the teeth were the official red herring planted to confuse the issue. The photos seeming to show uneven teeth were digitally degraded to look that way.
Let me make this very clear: U.S. Psyops altered a few of the military-supplied photos of 'Saddam' so that this disinfo crew could use that later to confuse the doubters. Plenty of other photos would show the teeth are nice and even. So it was a no-risk red herring. Perfect.
I knew this from way back. My suspicions were confirmed when Joe Vialls, on July, 3rd, 2004 made a big deal of one of the digitally altered teeth photos: Here. The reason that helped confirm my thoughts, is because I had long before figured out, like a lot of others -that Vialls is pretty clumsy disinfo.
(By the way, like WhatReallyHappened, Vialls is a relentless anti-Zionist ranter. It plays well at the emotional level. But, that's something else they have in common -besides Saddam's teeth and their common employer.)
Saddam's teeth are a run-of-the-mill misdirection gambit. There are plenty of legitimate, substantial questions about 'Saddam' that don't involve teeth. I have covered them all. WhatReallyHappened ignores them all and promotes the misdirection psyop instead.
The same techniques of planted red herrings, and ignored real evidence have been used in the 9/11 coverup, so technical 9/11 analysts should take note.

I'm not even going to warble on about the 'Peak Oil' rubbish that Rivero has been pushing for over a year. That's another story again. I'm not going to even bother discrediting Rivero further -he's doing a great job himself.
Rivero is just the tip of the iceberg. They have a frikkin' alt-media empire of 'alternative' websites and broadcast outlets. It's the kind of vast disinfo effort befitting the coverup of the murder of over 3,000 people and the subsequent slaughter of 100,000+ Iraqis. And so the disinfo show rolls on at all political levels, left, right and center. It's infotainment for bewildered sheep. And they got all the gates covered. Every shade of political and media opinion. Like a demented version of niche marketing.
But, you know that. Which is why you are here.
Let's give the last word to Rivero. He's good at digging holes:
"I have to admit, I was very sceptical when some of our readers expressed doubt that that was the real Saddam pulled out of that hole in Iraq. In these cynical times, one must be careful about false information planted in the path of citizen investigators trying to find the truth, so I was cautious." [Source]See Also:
