Fake News and Cyber Propaganda: The Use and Abuse of Social Media
By Lion Gu, Vladimir Kropotov, and Fyodor Yarochkin (Senior Threat Researchers)
Jonathan Leopando, John Estialbo (Contributors)
June 01, 2017
When the term “fake news” comes up, people usually think of social media posts with rather fantastic, implausible stories. While posts shared on social media is its most visible aspect, there is so much more to fake news than exaggerated article titles on social media feeds.
Fake News and Cyber Propaganda
Fake news may seem new, but the platform used is the only new thing about it. Propaganda has been around for centuries, and the internet is only the latest means of communication to be abused to spread lies and misinformation.
The fire triangle represents the three elements a fire needs to burn: oxygen, heat, and a fuel. Similarly, fake news requires three different items to succeed. These collectively represent the Fake News Triangle: without any one of these factors, it is unable to spread and reach its target audience.
The first requirement: tools and services for manipulating and spreading the message across relevant social media networks, many of which are sold in various online communities from across the globe. A wide variety of tools and services are available; some are relatively simple (paid likes/followers, etc.), while some are more unusual—some services promise to stuff online polls, while some force site owners to take down stories. In any case, the tools and services for social media promotion are readily available, both inside and outside the underground scene.
Of course, for these tools to be of any use, social networks have to exist as a platform for spreading propaganda. With people spending more time on these sites as a way to get the latest news and information, their importance in spreading fake news cannot be underestimated. However, there’s a difference between simply posting propaganda and actually turning it into something that the target audience consumes. We show what kinds of techniques are used by spammers in order to lure users into viewing their stories.
Studying social media also gives us a view of the relationships between bots and the recipients of social media promotion on Twitter. This gives us an idea of the scope and organization of the campaigns that attempt to manipulate public opinion.
Finally, propaganda campaign always comes with the question: why. We discuss the motivations behind fake news: sometimes it’s simply a desire for monetary gain via advertising. In other cases, the goals can vary from the criminal to the political. Regardless of the motive, the success of any propaganda campaign will ultimately be based on how much it affects the real world.
Case Studies
To show the effectivity of these campaigns, our paper includes various case studies that show how various actors would use tools for spreading fake news for their own ends. Our case studies include:
The specific tools for each campaign are not particularly different—bought followers/fans, likes, reposts, comments, videos. Some campaigns may find it worthwhile to buy “high quality” versions of these products, which are theoretically harder to detect by the social media networks.
Various uses of fake news
Countermeasures
Governments, companies, and users are all waking up to how serious public opinion manipulation—as manifested in “fake news”—can be.
Governments are starting to recognize that fake news is something that must be actively fought. Various government agencies are now setting up services to debunk stories that they consider to be false. They are also considering imposing regulations and punishing sites that do publish misinformation.
The targets of these new regulations would include social networking services. This would make fake news very bad for business indeed, and so they’re taking steps to fight it. The steps being taken include the suspension of bot/suspicious accounts, adding features to allow users to report fake news, and hiring more personnel to help deal with these reports.
In the end, however, it comes down to educated users. Our paper discusses some of the signs of fake news, in the hope that readers will be able to determine for themselves how to spot fake news. Our paper also discusses the psychology of fake news—what makes these campaigns work and how they’re able to convince people—in the hope that awareness of these techniques will empower readers to resist them.

How To Handle Psychological Warfare At Work
Isaiah Hankel, Ph.D.
Published on December 28, 2015
Certain people you work with want to surpass you. Others want to hold you back to keep you from surpassing them.
Very often, these people use the power of suggestion and other psychological strategies to throw you off balance. Once you’re off balance, they will seize the opportunity to outmaneuver you.
They will close in on the promotion you want. They will promise support that never comes. The only way to protect yourself against these psychological strategies is to develop strategies of your own.
You must learn to master how to use the power of suggestion and psychological warfare techniques, or be consumed by those who have mastered them.
How Suggestion Influences Your Behavior
Suggestions affect your expectations and expectations affect your behavior. These suggestions can be deliberate or non-deliberate.
A report by Current Directions in Psychological Science shows that suggestions create response expectancies, or the ways in which we anticipate our responses in various situations.
These expectancies set you up for automatic responses that actively influence how you get to the outcome you expect in any situation. Once you anticipate a specific outcome will occur, your subsequent thoughts and behaviors will help make that outcome happen.
For example, if a normally timid man expects that wearing a well-tailored power suit to a networking event will help him meet more business prospects, he will feel more confident after he puts on the suit, be more outgoing and make more meaningful connections at the event.
Though he may give credit to the suit, his expectations of how the suit would make him feel played a big role. A deliberate suggestion influenced his expectations, which influenced his behavior.
But this man could have been influenced by non-deliberate suggestions as well. If this man’s colleague told him that he had a good feeling about the event they were attending, he might believe something lucky would happen and subconsciously act more confidently.
Studies reported in Psychological Science confirm that these kinds of non-deliberate suggestions can make people more successful. For example, golfers make more successful putts when they are told that a golf ball is lucky, participants solve motor-dexterity puzzles better when experimenters make a “good luck” hand gesture, and patients perform better on memory games when they’re in the presence of their lucky charm.
Subtle suggestions from your surroundings affect you. These suggestions can change your behavior in a positive way. But, if you’re not careful, the power of suggestion can also change your behavior in a negative way. Here are 3 strategies that will guard you against the power of suggestion and psychological warfare:
1. Consolidate your forces.
Everyone is distracted. Most people have 10 or 20 things they are trying to juggle at the same time. This is why the most common response you’ll hear when you ask a colleague how things are going is, “Busy!”
Busy people can’t get anything significant done. These people are not a threat. They are like tiny hammers trying to hit 100 different nails at once. They tap, tap, tap without ever making a solid blow. But, at the same time, these people are incredibly distracting. They will tap, tap, tap you on your shoulder or in your ear until you are completely distracted too.
They will try to drag you into their office drama and, once you're dragged in, any progress you’ve been making towards your career goals will stop. Instead of moving forward, you'll start spending all of your time trying to explain yourself or trying to show other people that they’re wrong.
The people who are constantly trying to get your attention are baiting you. They want to distract you. They know that when you are distracted, you are not a threat. They know that when you’re spread thin, you are weak. If you find yourself getting split into a thousand different directions, the best strategy is to consolidate your forces.
Go back to your core priorities and start putting first things first again. Channel all of your energy into doing just one thing until it’s done. If you focus yourself entirely on a single purpose, you will complete it. In the meantime, everything else, including the distracting people tap, tap, tapping you, will go away.
Consolidating your forces is also the best way to confront manipulative colleagues. Remember, these manipulators are naturally distracted. They’re busy diving headfirst into office drama and annoying other people with their woes and complaints. By channeling all of your energies against them, you can defeat them quickly and permanently.
2. Change the conversation.
Office drama needs energy to survive. When somebody at work makes a negative suggestion or paints you in a poor light, the worst thing you can do is try to explain yourself or show the other person they're wrong. Defending yourself in this way only extends the conversation they started. A better strategy is to change the course of the conversation.
For example, if someone is pointing out one of your supposed flaws, don’t fire back a defensive comment about how you don’t have any flaws or about how the other person also has flaws. Instead, ask the other person how they overcame one of their own flaws. Or, ask them how things are going on their project or how close they are to meeting a big deadline.
Refocus them on something insignificant or on a pressing issue in their own work. Or, put them in the driver’s seat by asking them for advice (it's up to you whether or not you follow their advice).
In a similar way, you can make your weaknesses irrelevant by focusing entirely on your strengths. If you channel your energies into what you do well, your resulting successes will be so overwhelming that they'll overshadow your shortcomings. Now, when one of your supposed weakness is mentioned, you can quickly and easily redirect the conversation towards one of your giant victories.
3. Starve your problems.
When someone challenges you at work, your first reaction will be to challenge them in return. You’ll want to stand up for yourself and fight them with logic. You’ll want to seek justice by holding a mirror up to them and showing them why they’re wrong. This is a complete waste of time.
No one thinks they’re wrong ever. No one plays a villain in their own lives. By immediately retaliating against someone, you add energy to the situation and strengthen their resolve against you. You also expose your position. A better strategy is to sit on your hands and let things marinate. Don’t show any signs of weakness or distress.
Instead, slowly phase yourself out of the situation. Then, wait to see how the other person responds. Starve the negative situations until it's replaced by something more positive. Create a void and see what fills it. Stepping away will give you perspective and clarity over how to best use this situation to your advantage.
Remember, people who love office drama need you and your aspirations to channel their frustrations and failures onto. They need you to keep tabs on. They need you as a target. Your engagement gives them energy and direction. But, when you disappear, you force these people to carry the full weight of their own troubles. You force them to waste their time attacking empty space instead of you.

Always be aware of how other people’s emotions and actions are affecting you. Do not fall victim to the power of suggestion or any other psychological warfare strategies. Guard your mind by consolidating your forces toward your career goals and by changing the conversation when things get off course. By starving your problems you will keep other people from getting in your head and continue moving forward towards career success.

Government Uses Psy-ops, Trolls, Propaganda to Push “Conformity”
Alex Newman
Wednesday, 08 July 2015
Have you ever wondered if that corny Facebook user or that statist online commenter parroting government talking points was actually a paid propagandist working for Big Government? Well, there is a good chance he or she actually was. According to recently published official documents, a scandal-plagued U.K. government snooping unit bombastically styling itself the “Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group” (JTRIG) has been using “behavioral science,” social-media trolls, and online propaganda to manipulate public opinion and destroy critics at home and abroad. And it wants still more “behavioral science support” to further enhance its troubling “capabilities.” 
Among other objectives, the outfit and its armies of online trolls work to promote “obedience” and “conformity” while countering activists whom authorities characterize as “radical” or “extremist,” the documents show. The British snoops also work closely with the U.S. National Security Agency, which has found itself embroiled in growing scandals for lawlessly spying on millions of innocent Americans without so much as a warrant or even probable cause. And like the NSA, it is hardly the first time that the British snooping bureaucrats have come under fire for their shady activities. Officials insist all of their scheming is “legal.”    
The latest revelations surrounding the manipulation of public discourse and opinion by JTRIG trolls, part of the U.K. signals-intelligence agency known as the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), were exposed last month by The Intercept. Several previously secret documents were published. Perhaps the most revealing, though, was a 42-page paper from 2011 entitled “Behavioral Science Support for JTRIG’s Effects and Online HUMINT [Human Intelligence] Operations” authored by psychologist Mandeep K. Dhami.
“It provides the most comprehensive and sweeping insight to date into the scope of this unit’s extreme methods,” explained The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald and Andrew Fishman. “Among other things, the document lays out the tactics the agency uses to manipulate public opinion, its scientific and psychological research into how human thinking and behavior can be influenced, and the broad range of targets that are traditionally the province of law enforcement rather than intelligence agencies.”
Also confirmed once again in the latest documents is the fact that JTRIG is hardly limiting its activities to foreign intelligence gathering. Instead, it is collaborating with agencies including the police, the Security Service, the Border Agency, Revenue and Customs, and other domestic-focused government outfits in going after targets within Britain. It also gathers information on “radicalization” for the Department for Children, Schools and Families, in addition to helping law enforcement to work on “civil and family justice.” Even the Bank of England receives “intelligence” from the scandal-plagued snoops. 
Among the “objectives” outlined in the Behavioral Science document: “providing intelligence for judicial outcomes,” “denying, deterring or dissuading” criminals and “hacktivists” (hacker activists), and pursuing various forms of domestic crimes. Especially troubling to analysts, though, is the bureaucracy’s targeting of what the document describes as “domestic extremists” — from trying to destroy the government’s political enemies using sleazy tactics and lies to warping online discourse to support the government’s agenda.   
Instead of listing Islamic extremists or terrorists within the U.K., the same official report lists the “English Defence League,” a protest organization opposed to mass immigration and the “Islamization” of Britain, as its example of radicals. According to the document, JTRIG bureaucrats are “monitoring” the group by “conducting online HUMINT,” a reference to gathering “human intelligence” on its targets using the Internet. Other “radicals” monitored by the snoops at GCHQ, as previous documents revealed, include people who visit the pro-transparency WikiLeaks website.
More recently, in a speech to the United Nations seeking the dictators club’s help to wage war on “non-violent extremism,” U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron claimed belief in conspiracy theories or religious prophecies were evidence of radicalism that must be stamped out by government. Just this week, the U.K. education boss Nicky Morgan came under major fire for calling on school teachers to be conscripted in the war on non-violent extremism by 
Beyond simply gathering “intelligence” on people and groups that British authorities characterize as “extremist,” which now apparently includes Christian school children, the snooping outfit is also involved in trying to manipulate public opinion. In the executive summary of the document, JTRIG boasts that it “currently lies at the leading edge of cyber influence practice and expertise.” The document also describes a “range of techniques” that the manipulators use to “discredit, disrupt, delay, deny, degrade, and deter” their victims — including U.K. political activists and other targets worldwide.
Among those “techniques:” “Uploading YouTube videos containing ‘persuasive’ communications”; “Setting up Facebook groups, forums, blogs and Twitter accounts that encourage and monitor discussion on a topic”; “Establishing online aliases/personalities who support the communications or messages in YouTube videos, Facebook groups, forums, blogs etc”; “Establishing online aliases/personalities who support other aliases”; and much more.
In other words, next time you are reading extremist pro-government propaganda in a comment thread or on social media, it would be prudent to consider the very real possibility that, yes, as official documents revealed, it may really be taxpayer-funded propaganda propagated by bureaucratic trolls hiding behind an alias and “national security.” Based on the information contained in the latest leaked documents, it is clear that the British government’s paid “sock puppet” voices operate all across social media.
Less than five years ago, the U.S. military was caught working on a similar plot to create armies of “sock puppets” and have them parrot government propaganda online.
Other tactics outlined in the 2011 “Behavioral Science” report include sending “spoof e-mails and text messages from a fake person or mimicking a real person” to discredit, promote distrust, and more. If that sounds very Sovietesque, or East German perhaps, it should. Also described are plots to lie to victims by providing “spoof online resources such as books and magazines” that provide “inaccurate information.”
Finally, JTRIG bureaucrats and would-be social engineers boast of “interrupting (i.e., filtering, deleting, creating or modifying) communications between real customers and traders.” In some cases, the document explained, the snoops actually take over control of online websites, attack telephone and computer services, or contact host websites and ask them to remove material. It touts the fact that the unit “may cover all areas of the globe,” ranging from South America and Eastern Europe to Britain.
But all of that malfeasance is not nearly enough for JTRIG, the latest leaked document declares. Instead, it wants more “behavioral science support” to help manipulate the public into supporting the government’s increasingly extreme agenda. Among other items on its wish list are more research into “social psychology”; the “psychology of trust and distrust”; “developing realistic online aliases/personalities”; “psychology of persuasion”; “mass messaging”; “marketing/branding of Youtube videos”; and much more.
“Theories and research in the field of social psychology may prove particularly useful for informing JTRIG’s effects and online HUMINT operations,” the document states. The topics identified as “particularly relevant” for “social influence” include “attitudes, persuasive communications, conformity, obedience,” and more. “In addition, the application of social psychological ideas to marketing and advertising would be useful,” it concludes, touting schemes to get unwitting victims to obey its trolls.
The same controversial outfit came under major fire last year after its bureaucrats were exposed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden engaging in “dirty tricks.” Those deeply immoral schemes included planting false evidence to destroy the reputations of their targets — thereby potentially calling into question the “evidence” behind every government/media/establishment crusade and even prosecution against critics. In essence, authorities have been using “false flag” attacks to destroy people whose views they dislike, the documents show.
Citing documents leaked by Snowden, investigative journalist Greenwald, now with The Intercept, said the NSA and the U.K. GCHQ were “attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction.” The document that exposed the scheming was entitled: “The Art of Deception: Training for Online Covert Operations.” It called on bureaucrats to, among other wild plots, “inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets," and “use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable.”
It has become beyond clear that self-styled “intelligence” bureaucracies in the U.K. and beyond have crossed the Rubicon. Their propaganda and social engineering efforts now represent a threat to the very liberties, values, and people they were ostensibly set up to protect. How can a supposedly self-governing people make informed decisions about voting and policy, for example, when armies of government hacks are trying to warp public opinion in favor of a statist agenda, even if it means using lies? The simple answer is that it is not possible.  
The implications of the growing lawlessness should alarm everyone — even those who have fallen victim to government’s psy-ops and actually believe the propaganda and the talking points regurgitated by government trolls. And as The New American has been exposing for years, the Obama administration and the rest of the U.S. government have been involved in similar schemes. It is time for people to rein in their supposed public servants before those servants get further out of control and become full-blown totalitarian masters.

Psychological Warfare More Powerful Than Any Weapon
By Roy Masters
January 3, 2012
NewsWithViews.com
Left: Roy Masters
[Note: The first paragraph of the following article contains several elements of mind control. Find them and save your family and your country. Psychological warfare against Americans is more powerful than all your weapons. You need counter psychological warfare as well as weapons if you're going to survive. This author reiterates: psychological warfare for the minds and hearts of the population can paralyze the population into pre-subservience. What you need is counter psychological warfare that will be discussed in another article by this author. First, we discuss the fundamentals of what we are dealing with. Incidentally, the name of counter-psychological warfare is virtue.]
Five children were shot dead playing in a California schoolyard. Many others are wounded. The camera zooms in on the bloody scene, conveying dead bodies and panic driven survivors. Immediately, the camera pans to a close-up of a rifle. The reporter comments forebodingly, "The murder weapon used by the assassin was a deadly military assault rifle, a Chinese AK-47." In the background are heard wails of grief and mourning.
Exactly what happens inside your mind when you see and hear this scene on your television? Let's take a closer look. Think of this article as a mystery story. You will recognize various clues along the way. By the time you reach the end, you will realize the answer to the questions posed above. You will also understand many secrets of the news media, mass marketing and mind control – secrets which people in high places would rather you didn't know.
Clue Number One:
Perhaps you have heard about Ivan Pavlov’s famous scientific experiments with dogs. Pavlov fed a hungry dog, while at the same time he rang a bell. He did this repeatedly. Later, Pavlov discovered that just ringing the bell caused the dog to salivate. Think of it; no food just the tinkering of a bell and the dog’s hunger was awakened unnaturally. It salivated, that is, it reacted to the bell just as though food were really present.
What does this have to do with the recent unprecedented hysteria to ban so-called "assault weapons," you might ask. Simply this: the Pavlovian technique that has evolved into what we call social engineering works even better on humans. The reason is the denial factor— the fact that once programmed and corrupted by anything or anyone, the human personality will hold fast to programmed behaviors as if they were their own thoughts and beliefs and defend them to their death and even to the downfall of their own countrymen. In other words you can grow up as a communist and think you're an American and vote in a communist, wherein the danger of losing your country lies.
Let's come back to the dog. In order to condition an animal to react to the bell as if it were food, it must first react to the food naturally. In other words, the dog reacts because it is hungry. After that, the ringing bell is associated with the food – repeatedly – and thereby captures the food’s power to stimulate the response from the dog. It's called transference. So how does that happen with people? You simply talk to a person as if they were a dog, and so when they react repeatedly they will begin submitting to the demeaning source as if they were a dog, and unconsciously transfer their loyalty to the manipulator as though it were love and loyalty while denying the reality of their abject slavery.
Your fault lies in your resentful reaction that opens the door to every sort of behavior or ideology. Sadly, you will be loath to be aware that your thoughts and your loyalties are not your own. This sort of conditioning began in your early childhood with impatient and demeaning parents and was perpetuated by school colleges and a corrupt media. Any individual or groups that can intimidate you and open the door to your mind can own you individually or collectively as a nation. Consequently, many will fight against their own country thinking that they are Americans when they are really communists. Of course, you could become an angry overreacting rebel, but then you would look as though you were crazy and so be no threat to the system.
Clue Number Two:
Let us say that a girl was raped when she was young in a red, 1940 Chevy by a bearded, blue-eyed man on a rainy night. As a child she does her best to deal with the memory of the experience but cannot, so she buries it without realizing how it will unconsciously affect her future loyalties. The color red, beards, blue eyes and rain will have a lasting affect on her. She will be oblivious to why she's fascinated or repulsed by the color red, Chevys, rain or anyone of those objects that were present in the trauma scene – all or anyone of these will trigger a repulsive or attractive response – usually an attractive one. One day a person fitting this description will step out of a red Chevy. Immediately, she will think that she has fallen in love with this stranger. This in turn will compel her to transfer her loyalty to a stranger, destined to become a relationship of tyranny. How many of you have looked for love in all the wrong places and never seem to get it right? The election of lovers is identical to electing politicians destined to betray you, so that's how you will lose your country.
A skilled operative can exploit this weakness to his or her advantage and manipulate anyone according to his or her will. A bearded man could claim her loyalty and also could rain in the form of simply becoming depressed and hopeless on rainy days, for which there is no treatment except that which will make it worse. In this case, pharmaceutical organizations become parents to the sick and mentally ill because they do not know how, nor will they want to treat the real cause of a myriad of problems. Assuming that they have good intentions they still cannot help but be programmed by the patient to enslave them to the system. Do you see how the victim looks for reassurance for what went wrong with them in their formative years no matter what form, which takes the form of the system we have? Victims unconsciously seek out the reassurance of tyrants for the reassurance and the reinforcement of their programmed identity. Your identity of course is other than what God gave you when you were born.
Confront any person with their weakness, and if they're not ready to face themselves, they will defend not only the weakness but also, the mystical legacy of their corrupters. In other words they will defend those that have ruined their lives without ever realizing it. Furthermore they will be offended by your well-meaning assistance and common sense attempt to help them and make them see reason; reason being the enemy of their altered state of mind and heart.
And any attempt to awaken such an individual will only make them more defensive and more vindictive towards well-meaning people. Any sort of truth is the enemy. Indeed, given the "right conditioning," most people can be brainwashed to believe just about anything. Pick a peculiar insanity; apply the appropriate procedure – and bingo! A convert! And what a convert he or she will be, defending their newfound "faith" even to their death. In fact, any attempt to reconvert them to their natural life, the one they were born with, will only reinforce their implanted behavior, and if you're not careful they will drive you mad, or into a nervous breakdown.
People with such baggage are compelled to do unto you what was done to them in childhood, and if you are not careful with your overreactions such as resentment towards them, they will break you mentally, emotionally and physically. In other words, citizens are unconsciously being made to program citizens – Americans are unconsciously destroying Americans.
What I'm saying here is that the programmers behind the scenes are making us do to others what their kind have done to us when we were young, from the various institutions beginning with parents inheriting misery all the way back through the generations. Consequently, I repeat, realize it or not almost every American is under compulsion to demoralize other Americans to do the will of the Wizard of Oz behind the scenes. In this case it is communism. In other countries it would be fascism or radical Islam. In the aforementioned countries waking up would be a death sentence. Here in America it is becoming that way. Wake up before it's too late.

Puzzled by the hypnotist’s mysterious power, Roy distinctly remembers pondering the question: “Why can’t hypnotism be used to make people act sensibly, rather than foolishly?” Inspired by the idea of harnessing this baffling force for good, he later pursued the art of hypnotism and established a successful hypnotherapy practice.
After several years of practice, Masters made his central and pivotal discovery about the root of people’s emotional problems, addictions and complexes. He realized that people did not need hypnosis, because their core problem was that they are already hypnotized—not by a clever stage performer, but by the stresses, pressures and seductions of daily life.
He used his knowledge to discover a way to help us become de-hypnotized, and discovered that the root of the power of negative suggestion lay in our wrong emotional response, that of resentment. Masters’ remarkably effective exercise, a simple observation technique called Be Still and Know—is at the core of his unmatched track record in helping people overcome even the most serious mental-emotional problems, and is the centerpiece of a successful program within the U.S. military community (“Patriot Outreach”) that is helping thousands of military personnel and their families cope with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The U.S. Army illegally ordered a team of soldiers specializing in "psychological operations" to manipulate visiting American senators into providing more troops and funding for the war, Rolling Stone has learned – and when an officer tried to stop the operation, he was railroaded by military investigators.

The orders came from the command of Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, a three-star general in charge of training Afghan troops – the linchpin of U.S. strategy in the war. Over a four-month period last year, a military cell devoted to what is known as "information operations" at Camp Eggers in Kabul was repeatedly pressured to target visiting senators and other VIPs who met with Caldwell. When the unit resisted the order, arguing that it violated U.S. laws prohibiting the use of propaganda against American citizens, it was subjected to a campaign of retaliation.
"My job in psy-ops is to play with people’s heads, to get the enemy to behave the way we want them to behave," says Lt. Colonel Michael Holmes, the leader of the IO unit, who received an official reprimand after bucking orders. "I’m prohibited from doing that to our own people. When you ask me to try to use these skills on senators and congressman, you’re crossing a line.

The list of targeted visitors was long, according to interviews with members of the IO team and internal documents obtained by Rolling Stone. Those singled out in the campaign included senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman, Jack Reed, Al Franken and Carl Levin; Rep. Steve Israel of the House Appropriations Committee; Adm. Mike Mullen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; the Czech ambassador to Afghanistan; the German interior minister, and a host of influential think-tank analysts.
The incident offers an indication of just how desperate the U.S. command in Afghanistan is to spin American civilian leaders into supporting an increasingly unpopular war. According to the Defense Department’s own definition, psy-ops – the use of propaganda and psychological tactics to influence emotions and behaviors – are supposed to be used exclusively on "hostile foreign groups." Federal law forbids the military from practicing psy-ops on Americans, and each defense authorization bill comes with a "propaganda rider" that also prohibits such manipulation. "Everyone in the psy-ops, intel, and IO community knows you’re not supposed to target Americans," says a veteran member of another psy-ops team who has run operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. "It’s what you learn on day one."

When Holmes and his four-man team arrived in Afghanistan in November 2009, their mission was to assess the effects of U.S. propaganda on the Taliban and the local Afghan population. But the following month, Holmes began receiving orders from Caldwell’s staff to direct his expertise on a new target: visiting Americans. At first, the orders were administered verbally. According to Holmes, who attended at least a dozen meetings with Caldwell to discuss the operation, the general wanted the IO unit to do the kind of seemingly innocuous work usually delegated to the two dozen members of his public affairs staff: compiling detailed profiles of the VIPs, including their voting records, their likes and dislikes, and their "hot-button issues." In one email to Holmes, Caldwell’s staff also wanted to know how to shape the general’s presentations to the visiting dignitaries, and how best to "refine our messaging."

Congressional delegations – known in military jargon as CODELs – are no strangers to spin. U.S. lawmakers routinely take trips to the frontlines in Iraq and Afghanistan, where they receive carefully orchestrated briefings and visit local markets before posing for souvenir photos in helmets and flak jackets. Informally, the trips are a way for generals to lobby congressmen and provide first-hand updates on the war. But what Caldwell was looking for was more than the usual background briefings on senators. According to Holmes, the general wanted the IO team to provide a "deeper analysis of pressure points we could use to leverage the delegation for more funds." The general’s chief of staff also asked Holmes how Caldwell could secretly manipulate the U.S. lawmakers without their knowledge. "How do we get these guys to give us more people?" he demanded. "What do I have to plant inside their heads?"
According to experts on intelligence policy, asking a psy-ops team to direct its expertise against visiting dignitaries would be like the president asking the CIA to put together background dossiers on congressional opponents. Holmes was even expected to sit in on Caldwell’s meetings with the senators and take notes, without divulging his background. "Putting your propaganda people in a room with senators doesn’t look good," says John Pike, a leading military analyst. "It doesn’t pass the smell test. Any decent propaganda operator would tell you that."
At a minimum, the use of the IO team against U.S. senators was a misuse of vital resources designed to combat the enemy; it cost American taxpayers roughly $6 million to deploy Holmes and his team in Afghanistan for a year. But Caldwell seemed more eager to advance his own career than to defeat the Taliban. "We called it Operation Fourth Star," says Holmes. "Caldwell seemed far more focused on the Americans and the funding stream than he was on the Afghans. We were there to teach and train the Afghans. But for the first four months it was all about the U.S. Later he even started talking about targeting the NATO populations." At one point, according to Holmes, Caldwell wanted to break up the IO team and give each general on his staff their own personal spokesperson with psy-ops training.
The Insurgent's Tale: A Soldier Reconsiders Jihad
It wasn’t the first time that Caldwell had tried to tear down the wall that has historically separated public affairs and psy-ops – the distinction the military is supposed to maintain between "informing" and "influencing." After a stint as the top U.S. spokesperson in Iraq, the general pushed aggressively to expand the military’s use of information operations. During his time as a commander at Ft. Leavenworth, Caldwell argued for exploiting new technologies like blogging and Wikipedia – a move that would widen the military’s ability to influence the public, both foreign and domestic. According to sources close to the general, he also tried to rewrite the official doctrine on information operations, though that effort ultimately failed. (In recent months, the Pentagon has quietly dropped the nefarious-sounding moniker "psy-ops" in favor of the more neutral "MISO" – short for Military Information Support Operations.)
Under duress, Holmes and his team provided Caldwell with background assessments on the visiting senators, and helped prep the general for his high-profile encounters. But according to members of his unit, Holmes did his best to resist the orders. Holmes believed that using his team to target American civilians violated the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which was passed by Congress to prevent the State Department from using Soviet-style propaganda techniques on U.S. citizens. But when Holmes brought his concerns to Col. Gregory Breazile, the spokesperson for the Afghan training mission run by Caldwell, the discussion ended in a screaming match. "It’s not illegal if I say it isn’t!" Holmes recalls Breazile shouting.
In March 2010, Breazile issued a written order that "directly tasked" Holmes to conduct an IO campaign against "all DV visits" – short for "distinguished visitor." The team was also instructed to "prepare the context and develop the prep package for each visit." In case the order wasn’t clear enough, Breazile added that the new instructions were to "take priority over all other duties." Instead of fighting the Taliban, Holmes and his team were now responsible for using their training to win the hearts and minds of John McCain and Al Franken.
On March 23rd, Holmes emailed the JAG lawyer who handled information operations, saying that the order made him "nervous." The lawyer, Capt. John Scott, agreed with Holmes. "The short answer is that IO doesn’t do that," Scott replied in an email. "[Public affairs] works on the hearts and minds of our own citizens and IO works on the hearts and minds of the citizens of other nations. While the twain do occasionally intersect, such intersections, like violent contact during a soccer game, should be unintentional."
In another email, Scott advised Holmes to seek his own defense counsel. "Using IO to influence our own folks is a bad idea," the lawyer wrote, "and contrary to IO policy."
In a statement to Rolling Stone, a spokesman for Caldwell "categorically denies the assertion that the command used an Information Operations Cell to influence Distinguished Visitors." But after Scott offered his legal opinion, the order was rewritten to stipulate that the IO unit should only use publicly available records to create profiles of U.S. visitors. Based on the narrower definition of the order, Holmes and his team believed the incident was behind them.
Three weeks after the exchange, however, Holmes learned that he was the subject of an investigation, called an AR 15-6. The investigation had been ordered by Col. Joe Buche, Caldwell’s chief of staff. The 22-page report, obtained by Rolling Stone, reads like something put together by Kenneth Starr. 
The investigator accuses Holmes of going off base in civilian clothes without permission, improperly using his position to start a private business, consuming alcohol, using Facebook too much, and having an "inappropriate" relationship with one of his subordinates, Maj. Laural Levine. The investigator also noted a joking comment that Holmes made on his Facebook wall, in response to a jibe about Afghan men wanting to hold his hand. "Hey! I’ve been here almost five months now!" Holmes wrote. "Gimmee a break a man has needs you know."
"LTC Holmes’ comments about his sexual needs," the report concluded, "are even more distasteful in light of his status as a married man."
Both Holmes and Levine maintain that there was nothing inappropriate about their relationship, and said they were waiting until after they left Afghanistan to start their own business. They and other members of the team also say that they had been given permission to go off post in civilian clothes. As for Facebook, Caldwell’s command had aggressively encouraged its officers to the use the site as part of a social-networking initiative – and Holmes ranked only 15th among the biggest users.
Nor was Holmes the only one who wrote silly things online. Col. Breazile’s Facebook page, for example, is spotted with similar kinds of nonsense, including multiple references to drinking alcohol, and a photo of a warning inside a Port-o-John mocking Afghans – "In case any of you forgot that you are supposed to sit on the toilet and not stand on it and squat. It’s a safety issue. We don’t want you to fall in or miss your target." Breazile now serves at the Joint Chiefs of Staff, where he works in the office dedicated to waging a global information war for the Pentagon.
Following the investigation, both Holmes and Levine were formally reprimanded. Holmes, believing that he was being targeted for questioning the legality of waging an IO campaign against U.S. visitors, complained to the Defense Department’s inspector general. Three months later, he was informed that he was not entitled to protection as a whistleblower, because the JAG lawyer he consulted was not "designated to receive such communications."
Levine, who has a spotless record and 19 service awards after 16 years in the military, including a tour of duty in Kuwait and Iraq, fears that she has become "the collateral damage" in the military’s effort to retaliate against Holmes. "It will probably end my career," she says. "My father was an officer, and I believed officers would never act like this. I was devastated. I’ve lost my faith in the military, and I couldn’t in good conscience recommend anyone joining right now."
After being reprimanded, Holmes and his team were essentially ignored for the rest of their tours in Afghanistan. But on June 15th, the entire Afghan training mission received a surprising memo from Col. Buche, Caldwell’s chief of staff. "Effective immediately," the memo read, "the engagement in information operations by personnel assigned to the NATO Training Mission-Afghanistan and Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan is strictly prohibited." From now on, the memo added, the "information operation cell" would be referred to as the "Information Engagement cell." The IE’s mission? "This cell will engage in activities for the sole purpose of informing and educating U.S., Afghan and international audiences…." The memo declared, in short, that those who had trained in psy-ops and other forms of propaganda would now officially be working as public relations experts – targeting a worldwide audience.
As for the operation targeting U.S. senators, there is no way to tell what, if any, influence it had on American policy. What is clear is that in January 2011, Caldwell’s command asked the Obama administration for another $2 billion to train an additional 70,000 Afghan troops – an initiative that will already cost U.S. taxpayers more than $11 billion this year. Among the biggest boosters in Washington to give Caldwell the additional money? Sen. Carl Levin, one of the senators whom Holmes had been ordered to target
