Welcome to the 1984.
A newly declassified document gives a fascinating glimpse into the US military's plans for "information operations" - from psychological
operations, to attacks on hostile computer networks.
The declassified document is called "Information Operations Roadmap"
was obtained by the National Security Archive at George Washington University using the Freedom of Information Act.
The operations described in the document include a surprising range of military activities: public affairs officers who brief journalists,
troops who try to manipulate the thoughts and beliefs of an enemy, computer
network attack specialists who seek to destroy enemy networks.
Perhaps the most startling aspect of the roadmap is its acknowledgement that information put out as part of the military's psychological operations,
or Psyops, is finding its way onto the computer and television screens of ordinary Americans.
"Information intended for foreign audiences, including public diplomacy and Psyops, is increasingly consumed by our domestic audience. Psyops
messages will often be replayed by the news media for much larger audiences, including the American public."
"When it describes plans for electronic warfare, or EW, the document takes on an extraordinary tone. It seems to see the internet as being
equivalent to an enemy weapons system."

Well, Well, Well.
Bloggers Beware - YOU are the New Enemy of the Pentagon and the current American Goverment, Obsessed with Control, Security and Secrecy. This NEW
Document released (which you can read in .pdf, above), clearly shows, that the US Military can and will soon be able to attack Hostile
Networks. Tell me, who defined the words Hostile
in this Case?
The Document Says the Following:
"Strategy should be based on the premise that the Department [of Defense] will 'fight the net' as it would an enemy weapons system."
Meaning that DoD will Treat so called Hostile Networks
as an Enemy Weapon System - and I don't mean some Chinese Hackers trying to hack the
Pentgon or Nasa mainframe computer. This is PSYOPS taking a whole new Battleground.
I wonder how many so called psychological operations troops
- in short POT (:lol
, have already infiltrated Networks, Forums, such as this
It looks like the PNAC - Project for the New American Century
Shape and Form as you read this words, and the Basic Points that are mentioned in this Project are beginning to come true:
- A significant increase of U.S. defense spending
- Promoting the cause of political and economic freedom outside the U.S.
- Preserving and extending an international order friendly to U.S. security, prosperity, and principles.
- To control the new "international commons" of Space and "Cyberspace"
Is that Right?
Well I see that the Pentagon is not Happy
with the Stories, Sources and Topics that are Available on the Internet, and their Plan to Control it
will probably proove to be totally without any Effect. There's just too many of us!
