Editor's Note: A companion article is included in this newsletter How To Tell If Someone Is Controlled Opposition. Special Operations, Psychological Warfare Operations, and Disinformation Campaigns are used to promote a social, political, or economic agenda to a target population. They are all closely related and are taught in the same schools. The US has schools like the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, Fort Bragg, North Carolina and the Defense Information School, Fort Meade, Maryland.
There are similar schools in other countries like France, Spain, the UK, Russia etc.
9/11 was a special operation. This special operation is still being waged. It is being waged by "traitors" (e.g., those that would prefer a future America which her citizens would not naturally choose) against our country and against the US Constitution. An understanding of Special Operations and Psychological Warfare can be helpful to our cause to save our country from impending tyranny. The first rule of war is to study the enemy. There is a wealth of information on the internet. One of the benefits of studying Special Operations and Psychological Warfare is that it helps you see the world with a new pair of eyes. This knowledge helps you see and understand things that you could not see and understand before.
The most important part of running a disinformation campaign or psychological warfare campaign is to make sure the target population is not aware of the campaign being waged against them. Once a population becomes aware of the psychological warfare campaign, the campaign becomes no longer effective. The use of subtlety is important because without subtlety, the population may see what is going on.
When we “Present the Evidence” about Building 7, we are conducting a counter psychological warfare operation.
Psychological Warfare can include several methods such as a "Disinformation Campaign" (i.e. CNN, FOX, CBS, New York Times etc.)
A disinformation campaign has as its purpose a social, political, or economic agenda. One such agenda can be to sow confusion and muddy the waters of people trying to see what is below the surface. Many of us can see evidence of multi-threaded disinformation campaigns waged for the purpose of muddying the waters in order to create as much confusion as possible about 9/11. This is an old CIA tactic (e.g., Bay of Pigs) and Operation Northwoods). We should expect our movement to be attacked in such a manner by those that would prefer a future America which her citizens would not naturally choose.
Disinformation Campaigns can have many telltale characteristics:
- Use of "trusted" sources – For a disinformation campaign to be successful, it must have a source that is believable to the public.
- Partial truths – Sometimes there will be a nugget of truth in the disinformation campaign which they will use to get credibility.
- No original documents – Assertions are made and/or interviews are published with no access to the original supporting material.
If you study the history of disinformation campaigns, you will notice that most disinformation campaigns have at their core one or more absurdities. This is how you know it is a disinformation campaign.
Another indication of a disinformation campaign is an organized effort to disrupt and interfere with those who attempt to point out the obvious absurdities of the message presented by the disinformation campaign. This indication is rampant in the ongoing discussions about what happened at the Pentagon on 9/11.
They use repetition from several different “news organizations” to endlessly repeat their disinformation campaign. This is not new. It was taught in the schools of sophistry in ancient Greece.
They use multiple sources in an organized and coordinated manner to bombard the public from all directions with their disinformation campaign. This technique can be used effectively to make the public believe an absurdity. Examples include Germany in the 1930s and America's justification to NATO for the invasion of Afghanistan.
Never Renounce a Story
They will never renounce their story and will use the techniques of ridicule and repetition against anyone who disagrees with them.
They will never admit they are running a disinformation campaign.
Takes on a Life of Its Own
Disinformation can take on a life of its own as people who believe the disinformation will repeat it and pass it on to others. It is possible to promote a disinformation campaign without knowing you are promoting a disinformation campaign. This can explain why people who work for the Mainstream Media appear to be hired for their lack of journalistic curiosity.
One of the principles of running a disinformation campaign is that it is necessary to get your idea into the public’s mind as early as possible. This is because ideas have stickiness. Once a person gets an idea into his or her head, it becomes very difficult to change their mind. This is why they used their “news organizations” to insert the names “Osama bin Laden” and “Lee Harvey Oswald” into the public mind before the blood had a chance to dry. Notice they include the middle name of the patsy to help give the name a certain poetic rhythm when repeated. During the critical first phase of the disinformation campaign, they will use trained disinformation agents posing as “eye witnesses.” These fake “eye witnesses” will be seen by the public while being interviewed on national news shows immediately after the event.
One sign of a disinformation campaign is when they spend enormous time and effort to present volumes of non-relevant information and omit relevant information in their presentations. Examples of this are: The Warren Commission Report, The 9/11 Commission Report, and The NIST Building 7 Report. Their goal is to make the presentations appear comprehensive so that the public wastes their time reading worthless information, so they have less time to examine relevant information.
One of the difficulties of disinformation campaigns is that by their very nature, they must be done in public. When they choose to become active in a disinformation campaign, a percentage of the public will recognize the disinformation and see the dis-informers for who and what they are. One purpose of this paper is to increase the percentage of those that are aware.
9/11 and its Aftermath
9/11 and its aftermath like the Patriot Act and TSA constituted a crime of treason against the American people. The situation reminds one of a quote from Cicero:
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
As American citizens, we need to continue to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic because without the Constitution, we are "toast."
It is a shame that we must think about such things in what is supposed to be a free country. In the final analysis, each of us is an “army of one.” Truth can be a lonely warrior.
