[Nettime-nl] kalkoen was nep

Peanuts vergeleken bij het bericht over
Kissinger en Argentinie, maar toch leuk 
genoeg om door te sturen. 
Zelfs de vette kalkoen waarmee Bush met 
Thanksgiving bij de boys in Irak op de foto 
ging, was nep.

  The Washington Post reports the picture-perfect turkey George W.
  Bush held in front-page photos of his Thanksgiving jaunt to Baghdad
  was actually a decoration. Instead of being served slices of the
  golden-brown bird by the President, troops were served from
  cafeteria steam trays. "White House officials do not deny that they
  craft elaborate events to showcase Bush, but they maintain that
  these events are designed to accurately dramatize his policies and
  to convey qualities about him that are real," the Post writes.
  "This was effective, because it captured something about the
  president that people know is true, that he really cares about the
  soldiers and gets emotional when he sees them," Mary Matalin, a
  former administration official, said about the trip to Baghdad.
  "You have to figure out how to capture the Bush we know, even if it
  doesn't come through in a speech situation or a press conference.
  He regularly rejects anything that is not him."
