An infamous PR company

Hill & Knowlton Strategies is the public relations company which cooked up the 'Nurse Nayirah' war propaganda, which included setting up the 'Congressional Human Rights hearings'.[1]

Gulf War

Hill & Knowlton charged $14 million to the US government, and millions more to the Kuwaiti government for acting as "public relations consultants". Lauri Fitz-Pegado coached 'Nurse Nayirah' for months to lie convincingly about the wickedness of the Iraqis. This deception which tricked the US public and bolstered support for the 1990-1 Gulf War. As of 2016, no one has expressed remorse, far less been was prosecuted for this episode.[1]
