Senator Paul called the US government the biggest disinformation spreader in history
US Republican Senator Rand Paul called the US government the number one disinformation spreader in history. It is reported by TASS.
During a US Senate committee hearing with Department of Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mallorcas speaking, the senator asked how the executive branch plans to define what constitutes disinformation.
“You have no idea what disinformation is. Do you know who is the main spreader of disinformation in world history? United States government,” Paul said.
As one of the examples of disinformation spread by the US authorities, he cited the statements of the country’s leaders about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction. The senator also recalled the Iran-Contra operation, the illegal supply of weapons to Iran to finance far-right militants in Nicaragua.
Earlier, the senator said that US policy contributed to some extent to the start of the Russian military special operation in Ukraine. According to Paul, known for his criticism of US foreign policy, Washington’s support for Ukraine’s entry into NATO played a negative role in the development of the situation.
