"We'll know our disinformation program is
complete when everything the American public believes is false."
William Joseph Casey, CIA
1984 William Joseph Casey,
CIA director and one of
"founders, long-time counsel, board member and largest stock holders," puts
pressure on ABC and all major
America news organizations to be more supportive of
Ronald Reagan's radical
right-wing privatization agenda.
Casey asks the FCC to revoke all
of the television and radio licenses of ABC in retaliation for the network's
airing of an ABC News report
suggesting that the CIA had attempted to assassinate an American citizen.
Four months later, Capital Cities buys ABC for $19.2 billion.
At the time William Casey owns 34,000 shares of Capital Cities stock
worth about $7 million.
Melvin Goodman, a
top Soviet analyst at the agency, reports that the "Evil Empire" is undergoing
a severe economic and military decline.
Melvin Goodman is pressured to
revise his findings as William Casey wants to portray a Soviet Union "10 feet
tall" to justify bigger military budgets.
Secretary of State,
George Shultz, put it more delicately in his memoirs:

paramilitary, known as PP or KUCAGE, operations differ from those of PI or CI
because they are action rather than collection activities.
operations should be invisible so that the target will be unaware of them.
Action operations, on the other
hand, always produce a visible effect.
PP operations are, of course,
risky because they nearly always mean intervention in the affairs of another
country with whom the US enjoys normal diplomatic relations.
sponsorship were found out
consequences could be serious.
This is in contrast to collection
operations, for if these are discovered foreign politicians are often prepared
to turn a blind eye - they are
a traditional part of every nation's intelligence activity.
Thus the cardinal rule in planning all PP
operations is 'plausible
denial', only possible if care has been taken in the first place to ensure
that someone other than the US government can be made to take the blame.
PP programs are to be found in almost every CIA station and emphasis on
the kinds of PP operations will depend very much on local conditions.
warfare includes propaganda (also known simply as 'media'), work in youth
and student organizations, work in labor organizations (trade unions, etc.),
work in professional and cultural groups and in political parties.
Paramilitary operations include infiltration into denied
economic warfare, personal
harassment, air and maritime support,
weaponry, training and
support for small armies.
The vehicles for grey and black
propaganda may be unaware of their CIA or US government sponsorship.
This is partly so that it can be more effective and partly to keep down
the number of people who know what is going on and thus to reduce
the danger of exposing true
businessmen and others may produce propaganda without necessarily knowing who
their masters are.
Some among them obviously will and so, in agency
terminology, there is a distinction between 'witting' and 'unwitting' agents.
In propaganda operations, as in all other PP activities, standard
agency security procedure forbids payment for services rendered to be made by a
CIA officer working under official cover (one posing as an official of the
State Department, for instance).
This is in
order to maintain 'plausible denial' and to minimize the danger of
embarrassment to the local embassy if anything is discovered by the local
Officers working under non-official cover may also handle
most of the contacts with the recruited agents in order to keep the officer
under official cover as protected as possible.
between the two kinds of officer will be secret.
The object of all this
is to protect the embassy and sometimes to make the propaganda agents believe
that they are being paid by private businesses.
Problems of communist
influence in one country can be made to appear of international concern in
others under the rubric of 'a threat to one is a threat to all'.
For example, the CIA station in
Caracas can cable information on a secret communist plot in Venezuela to the
Bogota station which can 'surface' through a local propaganda agent with
attribution to an unidentified Venezuelan government official.
information can then be picked up from the Colombian press and relayed to CTA
stations in Quito, Lima, La Paz, Santiago and
A few days
later editorials begin to appear in the newspapers of these places and pressure
mounts on the Venezuelan government to take repressive action against
There are obviously hosts of other uses to which
propaganda, both black and grey, can be put, using
wall-painting, handbills, decals,
religious sermons and
political speeches as
well as the daily press.
In countries where
handbills or wall-painting are important media, stations are expected to
maintain clandestine printing and distribution facilities as well as teams of
agents who paint slogans on walls.
In order to obtain political
intelligence as well as to develop relationships with potential
political-action agents, most stations have continuing programs for cultivating
local politicians from opposition as well as from government
Making acquaintances in local politics is not usually difficult
because CTA officers under diplomatic cover in embassies have natural access to
their targets through cocktail parties, receptions, clubs and other mechanisms
that bring them together with people of interest.
Department Foreign Service Officers and Ambassadors as well may also facilitate
the expansion of station political contacts through arranging introductions.
When a local political contact is assessed favorably for station goals,
security clearance and operational approval is obtained from headquarters, and
the station officer in contact with the target begins to provide financial
support for political campaigns or for the promotion of the target's political
group or party.
The target will use some of the money for personal
expenses thereby developing a
dependency on the station as a source of income.
Eventually, if all
goes well, the local politician will report confidential information on his own
party and on his government, if he has a government post, and he will respond
to reasonable station direction regarding the communist question.
final arbiters of political conflicts in so many countries, military leaders
are major targets for recruitment.
They are contacted by station
officers in a variety of ways, sometimes simply through straightforward
introduction by US military attaches or the personnel of US Military Assistance
Sometimes the liaison developed between the Agency and local
intelligence services can be used for making these contacts.
officers can make contact with those military officers of other countries who
come to the US for training.
As in the case of politicians, most Agency
stations have a continual program for the development of local military
leaders, both for the collection of intelligence and for possible use in

the Soviet Union tries to extend its diplomatic or commercial activities,
politicians are expected to use influence to oppose such moves.
They are also expected to take a hard line against their own nationals
engaged in left-wing or communist activities.
In the last of these
instances success means the proscription of the parties, the arrest or exile of
their leaders, the closure of their offices, publications and bookstores, the
prohibition of their demonstrators, etc.
Such large-scale programs call
for action both by anticommunist movements and by national governments - where
possible the Agency likes to use the same political action agents for both

multi-million-dollar operations may begin a year or more before an election is
due and will include massive propaganda and public-relations campaigns, the
building of numerous front organizations and funding mechanisms (often resident
US businessmen), regular polls of voters, the formation of 'goon-squads' to
intimidate the opposition, and the staging of provocations and the circulation
of rumors designed to discredit undesirable candidates.
Funds are also available for
buying votes and vote counters as well.
If a situation can be more
effectively retrieved for US interests by unconstitutional methods or by coup
d'etat, that too may be attempted.
Although the Agency usually plays the
anti-communist card in order to foster a coup, gold bars and sacks of currency
are often equally effective.
In some cases a timely bombing by a
station agent, followed by mass demonstrations and finally by intervention by
military leaders in the name of the restoration of order and national unity, is
a useful course.

largely responsible for coups after this
pattern in Iran in 1953 and in the Sudan in 1958.

economic activities in a target country and the denial of critical imports.
Contamination of an export agricultural product or associated material

of tractors, trucks or buses destined for a target country may be undertaken if
other efforts to impede undesired trade fail.
Economic Warfare is undertaken in order to aggravate economic conditions in a
target country, these operations include in addition to sabotage, the use of
propaganda, labour, youth, student and other mass organizations under CIA
control to restrict trade by a friendly country of items needed in the target

products voluntarily, but local station political-action assets are usually
more effective for this purpose.

related to paramilitary operations are the disruptive activities.
Through organization and support of 'goon squads' composed of off-duty
policemen or militant sections of friendly political parties, stations attempt
to intimidate leftists by breaking up their meetings and demonstrations.
The Technical Services staff of the DDP makes a variety of weapons and
devices for these purposes.

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
created a populace unable to discern propaganda
from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international
corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of
reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs
when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or
persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a
system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie -
a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no
tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human
race. The international corporate cartel
already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the
global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the
collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not
occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of a
perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of
the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
