This chapter begins with the opening scene of Control Room, a documentary about the Al Jazeera Television Network and the war in Iraq, in which Samir Khader, senior producer of Al Jazeera, argues: “You cannot wage a war without rumors, without media, without propaganda. Any military planner that prepares for a war, if he does not put media propaganda at the top of his agenda is a bad military planner.” As if to confirm Khader's statement, in a later scene the camera zooms in on a detailed map of Iraq that has been haphazardly spread across a computer console. Brooding over the map, an Iraqi dissident explains to Al Jazeera producers how Coalition Forces claim to have captured a bridge over the Tigris River, although the only bridge over the Tigris can be found “here,” he explains pointing to the map, “in El Kut,” a city still occupied by the Iraqi army.

Keywords:   Control Room, Al Jazeera, Samir Khader, propaganda, military planner
