Ganda Propoganda

Most consumer electronics have been invented / discovered in the U.S. The internet is a US Defense Dept. invention. Turns out they don't know how to make the best use of these media.

Personally, I think this is just an excuse. There is no disputing that the U.S. is not winning the P.R. machine. But I don't think that has anything to do with the media exposure. Al Qaeda is beating the heck out of the US in the Muslim world, the same reason that the Republicans are beating the crap out of the Dems in the US.

They simply understand their target market better.

Getting a 24/7 news outlet will not help. Muslims who access the internet / TV have already probably made up their mind, this way or that. The minds that can be molded are those that are influenced by their religious leaders. The US has to take the place of these religiosos. They have to show those with the malleable minds that life under the "American way" is better than that under their current way. And there's probably a lot of Americans who don't think that's true!!
