Right Solution, Wrong Administration

A former partner of the KGB suggests a path forward in the 'War on Terror.'  But there's a problem.

...I strongly suggest our current administration and Congress take a serious look at President Truman’s National Security Council Report 68 (NSC 68/1950), which set forth the strategy of containment and became our main weapon in the Cold War.
...“The issues that face us are momentous,” the document states, “involving the fulfillment or destruction not only of this Republic but of civilization itself.” Therefore, it prescribed a two-pronged political strategy: 1) superior military power, and 2) a “Campaign of Truth,” defined as “a struggle, above all else, for the minds of men.” 

 Truman argued that the propaganda used by the “forces of imperialistic communism” could be overcome only by the “plain, simple, unvarnished truth.” The Voice of America, Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberation (soon to become Radio Liberty) became part of Truman’s “Campaign of Truth.”

This same two-pronged strategy – total military superiority and a robust campaign of utter truth – enabled America to prevail against communism, and is equally essential if we are to get the upper hand in a world threatening the unthinkable of nuclear terrorism....

Neither Obozo, nor any of his cabal, is capable of telling the truth.  (For that matter, Rubio's down the toilet, too, along with about 500 of the 535 other leeches-in-Congress.)

So this will have to be outsourced.  Palin?  Mark Steyn?  PJBuchanan?

I had some thoughts about a "Campaign of Truth" a few years back. I still think some of it is worth trying, though I can't imagine this administration attempting anything useful.
