Psychological Operations

Psyops   Definition of Psyops by Merriam Webster.png

Psy-ops are an instrument of war used to attack the mind of the enemy in hopes of influencing the individual(s) behavior.

A military officer trained in using psychological tactics to influence the emotions and actions of enemy troops told CNN Thursday her unit was ordered to used those skills to manipulate visiting lawmakers into securing more troops and funding for the war in Afghanistan.

After a fellow officer questioned the legality of using "psychological operations" on elected U.S. officers, both received reprimands that could threaten their military careers, she said.

"We're not allowed to do that against any U.S. citizen, whether it is a congressman or my neighbor three doors down," said Texas National Guard Maj. Laural Levine. "That is the first thing you are taught -- never target Americans, ever."

"My job in psy-ops is to play with people's heads, to get the enemy to behave the way we want them to behave," Holmes, the head of the "information operations" unit.

"I'm prohibited from doing that to our own people," he said. "When you ask me to try to use these skills on senators and congressmen, you're crossing a line."

Operation Northwoods

Government documents from the Cold War era show factions of the US government planned false flags against US citizens to justify a war with Cuba.

Operation Northwoods was a proposed false flag operation against the Cuban government that originated within the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) of the United States government in 1962. The proposals called for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) or other U.S. government operatives to commit acts of terrorism against American civilians and military targets, blaming it on the Cuban government, and using it to justify a war against Cuba.

You missed the bonus round where commenters guessed which were facts in the fiction. Go read. It's a shorty. Can be read standing.

A contest within a contest, that was cool I accidentally read the answers before i could guess, oh well. As a political junkie that was a fun read, were you a journo before?

Yup. Worked as a tech journalist for half a decade. And I am the opposite of a politics junkie. Politics makes me itch. I sat in on enough committees and session in the Israeli Knesset to develop a thorough dislike of anything political.
