Freedom's Watch: Marketing War on Iran

Troutfishing just raised an alarm on dailykos about the budget of the Freedom's Watch organization and its focus.

...$200 million dollars, the fund raising target of Freedom's Watch, is nothing to sneeze at given the fact that that pot of money will be dedicated to promoting one goal and one goal alone :

A US attack on Iran or, to put it blackly, more - and better ( or worse, depending on one's perspective ) - war in the Middle East.

Guess who is running the operation ?

Ari Fleischer, the man who helped sell the US invasion of Iraq.

Bill Berkowitz, one of my favorite journalists covering the religious-right, covers the genesis of Freedom's Watch for Media Transparency, in a piece entitled Freedom's Watch targeting Iran.
