Wikileaks Strikes Back at CIA!


file.__._

This classified CIA analysis from March, outlines possible PR-strategies to shore up public support in Germany and France for a continued war in Afghanistan. After the Dutch government fell on the issue of dutch troops in Afgha nistan last month, the CIA became worried that similar events could happen in the countries that post the third and fourth largest troop contingents to the ISAF-mission. The proposed PR strategies focus on pressure points that have been identified within these countries.

Whoa it's getting nasty!!

Wonder where they got this document????

How do you French and German citizens feel about the CIA sponsored ad campaigns to make you feel good about the war in Afghanistan??

This line is particularly sickening...

"Western Euopean publics might be better prepared to tolerate a spring and summer of greater military and civilian casualties if they perceive clear connections between outcome in Afghanistan and their own priorities.
A consistent and iterative strategic communication program across NATO troop contributors that taps in the key concerns of specific Western European audiences could provide a buffer if today's apathy becomes tomorrow's opposition to ISAF, giving politicians greater scope to support deployments to Afghanistan."

WOW that really sums it up nicely. This Memo was listed as "Confidential///No Foreign Nationals. There you go MSM you have your marching orders!!!

All I can say is "ouch!"

The CIA is known to operate in this way, and their mandate justifies it (for right or wrong - only future history and those directly affected can say).

Sadly, this kind of PR-consent manufacturing is not unique to American allies and foes.... they do it here too.... we call it "main stream media".

I would think that if you must hide your machinations because they are so intrusive and manipulative... maybe you shouldn't do it....

But then, I am not driven by ideological leaders who live in a fantasy world free from strife and want.

There, I fixed that for you. Why you seem to think the CIA are "justified" in interfering beyond their jurisdiction is beyond me. Or are you one of these misguided souls who feels the ends always justifies the means? If so, quit watching 24.

Here is another quote regarding the use of Afghan women to persuade European women to support the war. They even provide statistics...



-According to INR polling in the fall of 2009, French women are 8 percentage points less likely to support the mission than are men, and German women are 22 percentage points less likely to support the war than are men.

-Media events that feature testimonials by Afghan women would probably be effective if broadcast on programs that have large disproportionately female audiences. (C//NF)


Tonight's program is being brought to you by the American Central Intelligence Agency.

You'll get no argument from me. But they've allegedly been in this sort of 'foreign intelligence operation' activity for a very long time.... It may seem like an affront now, but apparently, it has been an 'accepted' practice since the days of black and white television.

Accepted by whom? I don't find their actions largely acceptable nor do many of my acquaintances. After all, we are talking about propaganda here, and if the CIA needs to perform such acts in order to garner support, then obviously the whole thing is wrong. If it truly was justified, people wouldn't need convincing.

I hate to say it but is this not what they get paid to do? And we blame them for the wars when they in truth have no control. Were does the buck stop? It stops at Obama the last time I checked blame him not them. They are doing their jobs and doing them well I give them a big thumb up.




I also have to wonder who is leaking this info? And when they catch them I do not want to see a trial wink wink. Why can we not even keep secrets anymore? We have real enemies who will view this as weakness and will try even harder to make us fall.



Disclosure is for fools. We need secrets and we should kill anyone who gives them away. Info like this could threaten all of us. Do you like to sleep without worries at night? Then wake up.

I love how the blame gets misplaced who do these guys and gals work for? They are who you should point your uninformed finger at. But this is not about the truth is it. It is about anger and misinformation and arrogance. The truth is nothing more then a side show on ATS.

SO! its kinda public known now, the CIA orchestrated afghanistan war. IN a sense. Wonder what wikileaks can dig up on 9/11, since obama told us to forget about it in a shameful manner.
We also have ahint, osama binladen wroks for the CIA then, or was payed by em. I think thiers a possible connection. shame on the CIA and obama.

Man, I love Wikileaks, they're the last bastion of unbiased REAL news!!

Not surprised at the CIA strategy, it makes total sense...but I'm happy it's out now, because it'll make this world a better place. Just donated some $$$ to Wikileaks for the second time since January, and I will continue to do so.

They present FACTS instead of OPINIONS, something almost no other news organization can say for themselves anymore. They deserve our support imo.

Yes, let's manipulate our allies and kill people without trial...long live America!!

Are you friggin' serious?? Is this the country you want the US to be?? A manipulative dictatorship (which it would be if the law would be disregarded as you want...death penalties without trials, seriously messed up!!).

Please he was not goin to leave the countires as* hanging out. He is my personal role mode along with Mr. King. And we do not know the whole story and probably never will. And you are only assuming to know it because you do not.


This is about keeping secrets and we should keep them when national security is at stake at any cost. You are just trying to bait on a subejct you are totoally assuming on. Nice try.
