The US DoD hired a PR firm many months back. I guess image really is everything.
PHILIPPINES HIRES WEBER SHANDWICK
http://www.odwyerpr.com/0502ws_philippines.htm
"The Philippines Dept. of National Defense is relying on Weber
Shandwick to keep in touch with the Pentagon, White House, Congress
and various federal agencies under a two-year contract worth
$20,000 a month," reports PR trade publication O'Dwyer's. "The
Philippines has the second biggest deployment of U.S. forces--after
Afghanistan--in President Bush's 'war on terror.' The Washington
Post reported on April 30 that the 1,000 American troops have
fallen behind in their plan to conduct joint exercises with
Philippine soldiers to fight Abu Sayyaf rebels who want to
establish a Muslim state in the southern part of the country."
