White House Wants to Keep Pentagon Propaganda Websites

“The White House has announced opposition to a Senate measure that would shut down Pentagon propaganda websites in foreign countries aimed at countering ‘extremist ideology,'” USA Today reports.

The Trans Regional Web Initiative should be spared the budget ax, the White House says, because it is the Pentagon’s “only synchronized online influence effort able to challenge the spread of extremist ideology and propaganda on the Web.”
