The heck is a "disinfo agent?" Ive heard everything from secret agents from the Secretary of the Press, to NSA, CIA, FBI, ect agents sent here to

discredit a web-site discussion forum on paranormal activity is a little arbitrary, whats your take?
Disinformation agents are people working for the organized stalking and electronic harassment perpetrators whose job it is to prevent the truth from
The objective of counter-intelligence is to identify hostile intelligence operatives. Once identification has been made, the operative is not
necessarily arrested immediately. A decision must be made, and hostile operatives can be left alone for a period of time so as not to reveal the
existence of counter-intelligence operations.
Nonetheless, an identified operative must be cut off from access to further secure information, without letting them know their cover is blown. They
might then be given disinformation
, either directly or indirectly.
Eventually, the operative and his handlers will realize their operation has been compromised if useless disinformation
is being passed, but
this creates time for the difficult process of "walking the dog backwards" to determine what has been compromised within the target organization.
Turning a mole can make him an unwilling agent of either side, either to continue the feed of disinformation
, or being coerced at threat of
imprisonment to betray his compatriot organization.
