State Department's banned counterdisinformation page

Here's an important State Department web page that everyone should bookmark.

I point it out only because it doesn't appear on the State Department's search engine and is supposedly banned in the United States thanks to a timid interpretation of an obsolete law.

The page is titled "Identifying Misinformation." Is is designed to inform foreign publics about false or misleading statements about the US and American policy.

It is the heroic effort of one individual at the State Department, whose office consists entirely of himself and, at times, a half-time support staffer.

State Department leaders do not believe that countering misinformation and disinformation is a very important issue, and have denied the office any resources to function effectively.

Here's the link:
