"Shockingly frank" Pentagon report admits we've lost the propaganda war

The Pentagon has admitted that the war on terror and the invasion and occupation of Iraq have increased support for al-Qaeda, made ordinary Muslims hate the US and caused a global backlash against America because of the “self-serving hypocrisy” of George W Bush’s administration over the Middle East.

The mea culpa is contained in a shockingly frank “strategic communications” report, written this autumn by the Defence Science Board for Pentagon supremo Donald Rumsfeld.

First of all - "supremo?" I think the correct term is "Secretary of Defense."

Second of all - how is it that all these off-message reports keep getting issued by the Pentagon?
