"Babies Being Thrown Out Of Incubators"

For those that don't already know: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nayirah_%28testimony%29

In particular:

"In 1990, after being approached by a Kuwaiti expatriate in New York, Hill & Knowlton took on "Citizens for a Free Kuwait."[33] The objective of the national campaign was to raise awareness in the United States about the dangers posed by Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein to Kuwait.

"Hill & Knowlton conducted a $1 million study to determine the best way to win support for strong action.[34] H & K had the Wirthington Group conduct focus groups to determine the best strategy that would influence public opinion. The study found that an emphasis on atrocities, particularly the incubator story, was the most effective.

"Hill & Knowlton is estimated to have been given as much as $12 million by the Kuwaitis for their public relations campaign."
