You see an example of one in my previous post as well. Be warned that many of these cards have graphic images of death and maiming. Click at your own risk to see the American Crusade Trading Cards. Some of them are quite hilarious in my opinion.
Journalist Bill Berkowitz has written an article on these cards.
Also found at The Infinite Jest:
Operation Afghan Litterbug The Infinite Jest's investigative reporters in Afghanistan risked landmines and fended off a band of starving local children to collect these colorful propaganda leaflets dropped from American planes. Veritas!
Operation Iraqi Trashcan When they're not busy dropping bombs on marketplaces or Al-Jazeera's hotel, US warplanes in Iraq blanket the landscape with paper leaflets of Truth to educate the locals about Freedom, Liberty and Peace! The Infinite Jest's correspondents in Iraq beat off Geraldo Rivera with a stick to recover this collection of colorful propaganda pamphlets for your viewing pleasure!
