Spreading Something Besides Democracy in Iraq

The Lincoln Group, one of three firms helping "to put more creativity into the Pentagon's psychological operations," is hiring. The firm just completed "a three-month image campaign with Iraq-based Al-Wathba Group to develop collateral material and a messaging strategy to introduce U.S. Marines to 'friendly neighbors' and promote good will." Now, they're looking for senior media and PR staff with Middle East experience, "to guide an advertising and PR campaign to inform the Iraqi people of 'the Coalition's' goals and to gain their support," reports O'Dwyer's. They're also hiring "polling and trend analysis pros to analyze media and compile statistics with the Iraq Centre for Research and Strategic Studies."
