(Disinfo) “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”
An interesting topic was posted over at AboveTopSecret.com (ATS) discussing the origins of an infamous quote attributed to a CIA Director.
William Casey was the 13th CIA Director appointed by President Reagan from 1981 until he left in January 1987. Not long after his retirement he died of a brain tumor in May 1987.
During his tenure at the CIA, Casey played a large role shaping Reagan’s foreign policy – particular Reagan’s approach to the Soviet Union. Casey strongly believed that the Soviet Union was the source of most of the terrorist activity in the world.
Sublimecraft finishes his opening post (OP) with this tidbit.
In my opinion, terrorism, the meme, is more powerful than terrorism itself and France is a testament to that because the consequential effect resultant from those oxygen thieves going berserk and killing and maiming innocents is a global argument on social media – the net result being to ostracize Islam and its adherents as all being tarred with the same brush – all being terrorists.
The propaganda and disinformation has led to global society divided.
ATS member Moreseby has this to say.
The amazing thing about propaganda is … it works!
Look how often (even here on ATS) you see people repeating the government’s memes. Places like Facebook and Twitter, as you’d expect, are even worse. Seemingly, without knowing it, users do the aims of TPTB.
You really have to be vigilant to avoid the influence of propaganda on your life and views. It’s insidious. It creeps into parts of your mind when you least expect it.
