The NYT reports that Peter D. Feaver, a Duke University political scientist who joined the N.S.C. staff as a special adviser in June and specializes in public opinion and war, crafted the “National Strategy for Victory in Iraq” and our Leader's Naval Academny speech. On the PDF of the 'plan', using the reveal code unveils Feaver as the author.
Feaver specializes in the psychodynamics of war and mental conditioning of the American electorate. Hence, under his direction, 'freedom' is mentioned over 20 times and 'victory' 15 times in the Naval Academy speech. Feaver claims his research is that Americans will support war as long as they believe in victory. Repetition is his weapon.
The Stiftung site overall obviously is tongue in cheek. But we are deadly serious about the underlying diagnosis of the ideological agitprop foundations, motivations and techniques of the Administration. Feaver's techniques and the Administration's ideological genetics are in harmony with approaches used by mass ideological regimes from Europe, Asia and South America in the 20th Century.
Welcome, N.Y.Times. Only now, in December 2005 do you report what has been obvious to everyone else for years.
