US unleashes six bloggers in assault on Islamist propaganda
The US government is turning to blogs and possibly to the virtual wasteland known as Second Life to step up its faltering information war against Islamist extremists. But critics remain unimpressed, saying the measures aren't enough to counter a massive internet campaign that spreads pro-terrorist messages to people in Islamic countries.
The New York Times reported that the office, headed by Air Force Brig. Gen. Simon P. Worden, had begun circulating classified proposals calling for using the Internet and clandestine operations to spread such disinformation.
Rumsfeld said the Pentagon has not spread lies and would never do so in the future. President Bush pledged on Monday that "we'll tell the American people the truth."
Information Operations Roadmap
The Department of Defense in the United States has developed a strategy for waging war through information, offensive network attacks, and multi-media campaigns.
The 10 recommendations in the IO roadmap have a budget of $383 million for fall 2004 through 2009. Aside from this funding, an additional $48 million per year is provided to “contract commercial sources for enhanced product development.” Products in this case are “multi-media campaigns” using satellite radio, television, cell phones, and the Internet.

Yea this was started by Rummy but they claimed they closed it down in 2002. Apparently it was not closed down more like letting the heat blow over.

The genetically engineered race called humans will not wake up until their electricity and water are shut off and martial law is being enforced and there is no food to eat and they are hungry and cold and dieing, so as Indigo sent here to notify the humans of the coming events I will continue to post these puzzle pieces hoping it will reverse some of the programming of the organic computers AKA humans.
