“Information Warfare” is a fairly new concept. As such, its definition is still evolving, but the Air Force has described it as encompassing
“any action to deny, exploit, corrupt or destroy the enemy's information and its functions; protecting ourselves against those actions; and
exploiting our own military information functions.”
Well there you have it, no excuses, this was well known about and foreseen as a threat in the earliest days of public internet, clearly they had some
people thinking ahead, as this document displays.
But as the issue almost always ends up being, the others or the majority were deafened by their own distractions, and failed to recognize the forest
for the trees. Meaning they did not see the bigger picture, as they were to focused on the wrong thing.
Those who do not learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.
