Pro-War PR Front, Move America Forward, Caravanning to DC

The pro-war front group Move America Forward has announced that it will caravan across the United States September 3 - 17 on a trip to DC to lobby for the war in Iraq. Move America Forward (MAF) was formed in 2004 by Howard Kaloogian and Melanie Morgan, a talk show host at KSFO 560 AM in San Francisco. MAF is organized through the public relations firm Russo Marsh & Rogers, which has strong ties to the Republican Party. Melanie Morgan, MAF chairman and a columnist for WorldNetDaily, gained notoriety in the summer of 2006 when she suggested that Bill Keller, an editor with the New York Times, be executed in a gas chamber for treason for the Times' reports on US government spying on American citizens.
