Damage Control Propaganda: Agencies tamp down speculation over hollow-point ammo purchases
August 17, 2012
Uh huh if you say so. What about the other 1+ billion rounds?
FOX News Obscure federal agencies triggered a firestorm of conspiracy theories this week after they put out orders for thousands of rounds of deadly hollow-point bullets.
But the agencies, most recently the Social Security Administration, are trying to put a damper on the speculation — noting the ammunition is “standard issue” and simply used for mandatory federal training sessions.
“Our special agents need to be armed and trained appropriately,” said a message on the official blog for Social Security’s inspector general office explaining the purchases.
