Harry Reid: Hearings On Pentagon Sock Puppets Are Coming
Senator, are you planning to hold hearings on the illegality of the Pentagon’s propaganda training program of retired military officers that was recently exposed by the New York Times and Glenn Greenwald?
The answer is yes. I have personally spoken to Chairman Levin and he is tremendously concerned as I. And we are proceeding accordingly.
As far as we’re able to tell, this is the first time anyone in the Senate leadership has indicated that the Pentagon sock puppetry is being considered a potential subject of congressional hearings. If Reid and Levin genuinely follow through, the resultant attention may be able to finally break what Politico aptly describes as the "media blackout" on this matter. And that, really, is nothing but good news.
Glenn Greenwald has much, much more.
