Remember the last time the media shrieked that a certain Middle Eastern country had developed "weapons of mass destruction" and was about to use them?

Now we are hearing the same story, only this time about Iran – a much bigger target. The lie is much bigger, too: our own intelligence community says the Iranians abandoned efforts to make nuclear weapons in 2003.

Yet virtually every "news" story refers to "Iran's nuclear weapons program" as if it were an established fact. Americans are swimming in a veritable ocean of war propaganda.

Not a day goes by, it seems, without some "breaking news" about Iran's alleged misdeeds, and no matter how fantastic the charges, the "mainstream" news outlets report them with straight faces.

Not us. We examine the "news" and deconstruct it from the ground up. Because the media refuses to do its job, we must do it for them – and for the American people. But we can't do it without your help.

Unlike the War Party and its journalistic vanguard, we don't have corporate millions bankrolling our operation. We depend on you to keep us going. And the need for has never been greater – because the warmongers are rarin' to launch yet another disastrous war.
