The Information Operations Roadmap

Obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by the National Security Archive
at George Washington University and posted on the Web today, the 74-page
"Informatio n Operations Roadmap" admits that "informatio n intended for foreign
audiences, including public diplomacy and PSYOP, increasingly is consumed by our
domestic audience and vice-versa," but argues that "the distinction between
foreign and domestic audiences becomes more a question of USG [U.S. government]
intent rather than information dissemination practices."

The Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, amended in 1972 and 1998, prohibits the U.S.
government from propagandizing the American public with information and
psychological operations directed at foreign audiences; and several presidential
directives, including Reagan's NSD-77 in 1983, Clinton's PDD-68 in 1999, and
Bush's NSPD-16 in July 2002 (the latter two still classified), have set up
specific structures to carry out public diplomacy and information operations.
These and other documents relating to U.S. PSYOP programs were posted today as
part of a new Archive Electronic Briefing Book.

Several press accounts have referred to the 2003 Pentagon document but today's
posting is the first time the text has been publicly available. Sections of the
document relating to computer network attack (CNA) and "offensive cyber
operations" remain classified under black highlighting.

"The history of the present [Junta] is a history of repeated injuries and
usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute
Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world."
- Declaration of Independence

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same
Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their
right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards
for their future security."

They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country
and our people, and neither do we." -- G. W. Bush.
"The people can always be brought to the bidding of the
leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being
attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism
and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way
in any country." --Hermann Goering.

Actually, it's more reminiscent of the attitude of Immanuel Goldstein,
Gary Leupp, and Doug Thompson to truth.

I suppose you're not inclined to doubt the veracity of anything
written about George Bush, as long as it's bad.

*Please* don't feed the troll. The validity, or lack thereof, of what
the troll wrote is entirely beside the point. This is comp.lang.c (as
well as comp.os.linux.m isc, comp.theory, sci.math, comp.sys.mac.mi sc,
and alt.comp.openso urce). The very last thing *any* of these
newsgroups needs is a flame war about US politics.

Followups set.

Well, I did have SOME concerns about the veracity of the incident,
but very little about the attitude. Look what has happened to
Kyoto, Canadian lumber, just to grap two incidents off the pile.
Note my great restraint in not mentioning Iraq.

Just that massive cross-list pretty well lets you know it's a worthless

I'll have to pick on one of those other groups for my filters. I really
like being able to filter that way these days.

That was my fault. The original post pertained to the recently declassified DOD
document _The Information Operations Roadmap_. Some of it is still
censored/blackened out, but the information contained within affects anyone
concerned with freedom of information over the Internet. I chose the most
popular sci|comp-related groups, to disseminate the information as widely as
possible, and with minimal cross-posting.

I apologize, if I upset anyone with my post.
