Recently Professor Juan Cole over at Informed Consent posted an informative piece on the most recent pieces of misinformation being hauled out by the pro-war crowd. He debunks the Iranian dress requirement for Jews story, and points out flaws with the 'Israel should be wiped off the map' quote. Again does any hear about the factual corrections of these stories? Some certainly do, but not nearly as many who heard the misinformation in the first place. The seed is successfully planted. In the end that's all that really matters to the propagandist.
