Pentagon destroys thousands of copies of Army officer’s memoir
Ok, here’s the deal. The first I heard of this I said to myself, if they truly believe the information would impact national security, then it must be kept secret… but then I thought why the heck would the Pentagon wait until after the book was published before they pulled the plug on it in such a visible way… and there I think is the key!
While most people that like a good conspiracy are focusing on “What was removed” – I’m really thinking we should be focusing on “Why did they do it in such a visible way”.
Follow the bouncing ball.
The writer is an ex-CIA op – probably worked in PsyOps and Counter Intel; wouldn’t it seem plausible that he was in collusion with the Pentagon to write the book, publish the book, and then have the book destroyed and redacted in such a public manner?
First, it would definitely increase the book sales, but second, and more importantly, it would bring more credence to the information being written in the book.
So, what if the book is actually a ploy to feed our minds with information that really isn’t true; by doing what they did in such a visible way, they have all but assured that people will buy the book, read the book, believe the book, and spread & speculate on what else may have been “taken out”.
Do we buy it “hook, line and sinker”?
See, I’m either smarter than everyone else, or I’m more paranoid than everyone else! Either way, it certainly works to fuel the fun of conspiracies!
Now, off to buy the book! 🙂
