The above quote from I.F. Stone demonstrates that nothing has changed when it comes to the central state. Here's the story you won't see in the headlines of your corporate newspaper, nor in glowing phosphors on your TeeVee screen:
7 Deceptions About Bin Laden's Killing Pushed by the Obama Administration

This is no "fog of war." This is deliberate misinformation, disseminated knowing full well that the real story, when revealed, would never have the impact of the lies initially told.
Governments always lie.
