KUWAIT CITY, KUWAIT (SP) — Leaflets dropped from airplanes over Baghdad last night portrayed a U.S. serviceman talking to an Iraqi civilian. In the caption, the soldier assures the civilian that, contrary to appearances, independent thought and dissent are not completely dead in the United States. As evidence of this, he points to the website address of The Onion - America's Finest News SourceTM.
After further consideration, the Department of Defence ordered dropping of similar leaflets over much of Western Europe and South-east Asia, commencing today. "With world opinion of the U.S. being what it is today, and with the majority of the mainstream U.S. media toeing the government line, we figured it couldn't hurt," said Col. James A. Treadwell of the 4th Psychological Operations Group, U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne).
