What I have also given though about is can disinformation/misinformation be passed on or promoted to the public through statistics and studys. In otherwords can statistics and studys be politically motivated and not for the public consumption or good but for the purposes of control of the public.
it is so refreshing to run across someone who doesnt think all stamped/xeroxed out. Gives one hope.
Most disinformation these days is an effort by a team.
When you see multiple sources pop up at about the same time, they're all trying to get a bonus.

I'm wondering if you could apply your technique to a story that circulated around the web about the time traveling stock trader from 200 years in the future.
I'm told that the story on the web is obvious "mis-information" but that there was an actual AP and UPI story that preceeded it.
I read your thread on the video footage, and I'm again impressed with your ability to disect the varioius facts and mis-information piece by tiny piece! That is quite a skill you've got and it makes me wonder at who you work for in the real world.
Can you imagine having a few similarly skilled people like yourself working to disseminate information for the goverment? Or analysing intelligence data pouring into the goverment.
Yes, you've got a very handy skill. One I would be hard pressed to even approach.

I have difficulty wrapping my mind around the process your describe Iskander, but I grasp the flavor of what you are implying. Which oddly enough, after Oranges following comment about us saps not getting what we are voting for, makes me wonder in a conspiracy ATS kind of way....
Some think tank (for lack of a better word), came up with that proposal, "don't deliver what you promise". This would be a great way for Americans to decide they did not need this false democracy any longer and with NAFTA like thinking, decide to merge our country with Canada and Mexico, wherein there would not really be any elections henceforth. Or at the very least, our entire system of goverment would take another big leap to the Left.
I suspect the "Right" already has concerns about this trend towards globalization of our way of life, and there is nobody more "Right" than our Military.
I can only wonder what would happen if this weakness is presented in clear concise terms to our Conservative Ultra Right Military factions. Would they see this a threat and decide it was time to CLEAN HOUSE?
