White House Rolls Out Kenya Propaganda Plan

White House Rolls Out Kenya Propaganda Plan

Aims to 'groom' journalists for favorable coverage from Nairobi to New York

By Steve Peacock

(A similar version of this article originally was published via WND.com on July 3, 2012. Under agreement with WND, rights have reverted back to the author, Steve Peacock.)

Now that the Obama administration is pouring vast amounts of money into Kenya, it’s going to need some help selling its spending to the people.

WND has discovered the U.S. Agency for International Development has devised a sophisticated scheme to sway public opinion on U.S. “investments” in the African nation, including strategies to “groom” targeted journalists for favorable media coverage.

The USAID/Kenya Strategic Communications Plan 2012-2013 emerges at a time when the level of U.S. government projects in Kenya has outpaced agency resources. As this author originally reported via WND, U.S. spending in Kenya has grown ‘exponentially’ under Obama, forcing USAID to hire contractors to oversee it all.

On June 29 USAID attached the Kenya propaganda plan – which itself is dated June 16 – as an addendum to its procurement documents.

The Kenya strategic plan maps out its intentions in the context of the White House’s position that a “stable and prosperous Kenya is central to American foreign policy.”

Indeed, the document’s first line establishes that “USAID/Kenya is playing a lead role implementing President Obama’s vision for global development, which sees development assistance as a pillar of foreign policy and crucial to America’s national security and economic interests.”

I think the proper term is "Tribal Leader," or more likely - "Village Idiot."

SO? Just add it to the list:

________________________________________

The average American hasn’t a CLUE how much of our tax money Obama has sent down Muslim sh*t holes while he plans to slash the military, threatens to cut medicare and withold senior’s social security checks!

BILLIONS FOR JIHAD!

Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee.
It gives billions http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/05/1...
of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.
Read the summary from David Obeys office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.

$3.6 BILLION, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces

$400 MILLION, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces

AFGHANISTAN: $1.52 BILLION, $86 MILLION above the request

WEST BANK AND GAZA: $665 MILLION in bilateral economic, humanitarian, and security assistance for the West Bank and Gaza

JORDAN: $250 million,$250 million above the request, including $100 million for economic and $150 million for security assistance

EGYPT: $360 MILLION, $310 million above the request, including $50 million for economic assistance,$50 million for border security, and $260 million for security assistance

PAKISTAN:$1.9 billion,$591 million above the request

IRAQ:$968 MILLION,$336 million above the request

Oversight:$20 million,$13 million above the request, to expand oversight capacity of the State Department, USAID, and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan to review programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq

Lebanon:$74 million

International Food Assistance:$500 MILLION,$200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis

REFUGEE ASSISTANCE:$343 MILLION,$50 million above the request, including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)

Disaster Assistance:$200 MILLION to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia
Peacekeeping:$837 MILLION FOR UNITED NATIONS peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic

Department of Justice:$17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system

Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world:

http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/... #
ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL GIVE AWAY NEARLY $6 MILLION OF AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO RESTORE 63 HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, INCLUDING ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND MINARETS, IN 55 NATIONS. See the State Department document here.

http://exchanges.state.gov/media/pdfs/office-...
And THAT’S just the tip of the iceberg.
THIS will blow your mind!!
http://gbk.eads.usaidallnet.gov/
They should have 2010 up, but they don’t. That’s where you’ll find Obama’s largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.

That’s what I was thinking, “feathering the nest” so to speak. Loot a country (the US) to build a nice little empire in Africa all for himself. I wonder how far down this rabbit hole goes, and what other players are involved.

Exactly...he will be on the run (hopefully) and since he has facilitated all this money throughout the world he will have free reign while moving from country to country.

The O administration has cut the HIV/AIDS program funding for the Black Community by 10%, yet Blacks continue to support him. Absolutely amazing! AIDS in Black America is dire and getting worse. Somehow they’ll figure out a way to blame it on the next white president though.

It's all whitey's fault. You can tell because they're white.

BHO2 sent $20+Million of our tax revenue to Kenya so they could rewrite their national Constitution three years ago.

How convenient that the rewrite now allows BHO2 to run for President of Kenya! That’s right - BHO2 is now eligible to be President of an African nation and all at our expense.

THAT is why billions of our dollars go there - he hasn’t even left the U.S.A. and already he is running for President of Kenya.

"Where’s our disillustrious Congress?"

Excellent question. Except for Darrell Issa and a couple others we are being sold down the river to destruction. How does this guy get away with all this cr*p? What are these politicians doing for us? They are bankrupting us to fund their gold-plated lifestyles.

SO? Just add it to the list While I am also aware of and concerned about the information you provided -- which is widely reported and publicly available -- I hardly think that a sophisticated plan (unreported elsewhere) to further manipulate the media and deceive the public warrants a dismissive "So?"
