The Schmooze in Hormuz

I've been studying the incident in the Strait of Hormuz of early January between U.S. and Iranian naval forces, and am more convinced than ever that it was blown out of proportion by an administration friendly media with urging from the remnants of Donald Rumsfeld's Office of Strategic Influence (aka Ministry of Truth).

Later this week, I'll have some thoughts on how I think the executive branch's disinformation network operates today, how the Hormuz affair fits into the grand strategy, and what all of it portends for whoever succeeds young Mr. Bush in the Oval Office.

Best,

Jeff
