Information Warfare: March 22, 2003


Conscious of how politicized the Iraq War has become, the Department of Defense has spent $1.5 million to build a media center in Doha, Qatar. Designed by movie set designer, and rapidly constructed by Naval Construction troops (SeaBees), the center features an impressive set for presentations on how the war is going, as well as room for over three hundred journalists to work and file their stories. The set, which everyone will see constantly in the next few weeks, features huge plasma screens and striking lighting effects. The center has high speed data lines for Internet and other communications. They can probably also bring in live video from the battlefield (via Predator or vidcam on the ground.)
