Given the dramatic period of adaptation that followed 9/11, it is important to reflect on the changes in propaganda and deconstruct the role played by the Anglo-American relationship, with a view to bring wider discussion in academia, policy and wider society. This chapter emphasises the need for debate and comment on the shape of change in propaganda, and the future of British Atlanticism. Practitioners in UK and US government institutions often argue that propaganda is a tool of foreign policy and 'limited' war which is used to serve the public interest. The counter-insurgency response needed for fighting the US 'War on Terror' in a globalised media environment demonstrably posed a significant challenge to the US defence infrastructure. By supporting the US in its 'War on Terror' Britain's leadership was in a position where it was then committed to managing the consequences of the conflicts, 'reconstruction' and insurgencies.
