Damn I been found out. lol
Of course they do this it's not unlike the FBI talking some fool into building a bomb then busting him or her.
I absolutely support this.
Its about time we see signs of our military actually adapting to the internet world we live in. Anything that has our military/defense agencies harnessing current technologies to better do its duties is a good thing in my eyes. The last thing we want to do is slag behind with regards to cyber warfare and this simply tells me we're attempting not to let that happen...or happen more than it already is.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
As far as I know, PR, persuasion, psyops would work as well on us as it would on other countries. So we would have to take their "word" that they wouldn't use it on us. It's even illegal. But I seem to recall a cute young private from the invasion phase in Iraq who was most assuredly NOT "rescued by brave commandos at great risk to life and limb. The least they could do for one of their own, who had fought til her last bullet."
Not even close.
And as the rescue video was taken by the military, and provided by them, it begs the question:
Was the Jessica Lynch fabrication a violation of the law prohibiting the use of psyops or public diplomacy that targets American citizens?
Just thought of this last night. Seemed relevant here.
AFAIK, history is devoid of examples of a power that could be abused not being abused evenually, even when the power was created by good people for good reasons. Nature of the beast, I guess.

Anyone wondering what I'm talking about start here:
The Psychology of Persuasion
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
that's nothing. I'm a military member and i already have at least 5 persona's. one here, another forum, a blog, a magazine site, and my facebook account.A Californian corporation has been awarded a contract with United States Central Command (Centcom), which oversees US armed operations in the Middle East and Central Asia, to develop what is described as an "online persona management service" that will allow one US serviceman or woman to control up to 10 separate identities based all over the world.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
So much tinfoil in this thread that my TV started flickering.
One of you will end up here next!
