Credibilty Squandered - A Call For Propaganda, Arms, Intelligence

"A new security study released by the Third Way, a Democratic-leaning think tank," and authored by two former Clinton administration officials, discusses how to rebuild U.S. credibility overseas.

The study calls for "a robust military response to the terrorist threat," along with "a massive public relations effort akin to the Cold War propaganda machine."

Militarily, the study suggests 100,000 more ground troops and "reinvigorated intelligence services."

It also calls for "a massive increase to the $140 million the United States spends annually on public diplomacy," and "re-creating the United States Information Agency, which was folded into the State Department during the Clinton administration."
