Subject: Looking for info on www.indiadaily.com

When I saw Michele Bachmann claiming that Obamaís trip to India was costing $200 million a day, that sounded inflated beyond any reality. (The White House wonít release the official numbers, but say this is way off the actual cost.) So I wondered, as did Anderson Cooper who asked, where she got her information. She cited an Indian news site, and I thought immediately, Iíll bet I know which one.

How could I possibly know which source in India she had used?

Because thereís a site called ďIndia DailyĒ that seems to carry stories that might well be deliberate disinformation. I learned of this site while watching emails between people connected with the intelligence and military establishment fly by me in private correspondence over the last few years. More than once Iíve thought, this site canít be Ďreal.í

So when Bachmannís story surfaced, I tracked down the early stories on the Web. Sure enough, it appears India Daily was the original source, and others picked it up from there.

India Daily is a strange site. Thereís no way to submit articles. Thereís no contact information. Thereís a generic form to submit if you want to advertise on the site. (I wonder if anyone ever answers?) Given the strange nature of the articles that appeared there over time, in the back of my mind, Iíve always suspected that site was not run by anyone in India. While there appear to be stories about India, those were never the links and stories sent to me. Iím wishing now I had saved the links so you could see what I mean.

The site is a .com domain, which is also odd, because all countries have their own domain. Indian sites end with .in for India, just as UK sites end with .uk. Der Spiegel, the famous German magazine, is in the .de (Deutschland) domain.

In the wake of the Bachmann slur, I decided to put this to the test. I used a whois server to find out who owned the domain. Itís registered under GoDaddy.com, a US company headquartered in Arizona and indeed, the server is definitely located in Arizona.

Is IndiaDaily.com a CIA site? Who really runs this site?

Iím sharing this around in case others know more. I would NEVER cite anything published on this site as fact, from what Iíve seen of it. Iíd not be impressed by others who did.

Who is behind this site? Who sent Bachmann a link to it? (I can hardly imagine her reading that site as part of her daily browsing.)

If someone sends YOU a link to India Daily, Iíd love to know who that was. Iím very interested in who is behind this site. In the past, the CIA had to work hard to plant a story and hope it would blowback to the United States. Now, it might be as easy as posting to an Arizona serverÖ.

They are very shy. They're using a proxy domain registrar. Probably GoDaddy. They don't look like any legitimate media company.
There is 1 domain / website on the IP which is used by www.indiadaily.com (http://www.indiadaily.com) - indiadaily
www.Indiadaily.com (http://www.Indiadaily.com) looks like a dedicated hosting to us.

I saw that story too, or one like it about Obama taking 200 warships on his trip. It was an Indian site. Do not recall the name. But it was all over the net, all over a google search. Of course it was false information.
Can't trust a lot of sites on the net.
