"Senators introduce bill to block military propaganda campaigns."

The Crypt reports that Sens. John F. Kerry (D-MA), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Byron Dorgan (D-ND), and Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) introduced legislation today “to prohibit the Defense Department from using money for ‘propaganda.’” The bill would also “require the DoD inspector general and the Government Accountability Office to deliver related reports to Congress within 90 days.” The legislation is a response to the secret Pentagon propaganda program revealed in April by the New York Times.
