sWho speaketh the truth?
Just a squick observation on disinformation below, an example of how information on disinformation can be spread inadvertently...:-) .
quote<<<<How the Soviet bloc planted 4,000 agents of influence in the Islamic world, armed with hundreds of thousands of copies of the most infamous anti-Semitic book in history, to fan the flames of ancient Arab resentments against the U.S. and Israel and sow the seeds of anti-Semitism that would later bloom in the form of violence and terror toward Jews and Christians.>>>end of quote.
According to Wikipedia at url:
The Soviets were not the only ones to promote the book.
This book was also promoted by Henry Ford who funded the printing of 500,000 copies of it. Adolf Hitler also had it distributed to schools in Germany and its anti-Jewish message was taught as a part of the national socialist curriculum.
I think it also crops up in a book called The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown where he mentions the formation and existence of the Priory of Sion. In the introduction to the Book, Dan Brown, says that "everything in this book is true" Even though it is classed as fiction, I knew some people who thought the work was true.
I could take the rest of the article apart, if I could be bothered...but I think that the example is enough to show that the truth is never simple and rarely true...:-)

Today, still living undercover in the United States, the man
credited by the CIA as the only person in the Western world who
single-handedly demolished an entire enemy espionage service--the
one he himself managed--takes aim at an even bigger target: the
exotic, widely misunderstood but still astonishingly influential
realm of the Russian-born "science" of disinformation.Indeed,
within these pages, Pacepa, along with his co-author, historian
and law professor Ronald Rychlak, expose some of the most
consequential yet largely unknown disinformation campaigns of our
Discover answers to many crucial questions of the modern era:
* Why, during the last two generations, has so much of the
Western world turned against its founding faith, Christianity?
* Why have radical Islam, jihad and terrorism burst aflame after
a long period of apparent quiescence?
* Why is naked Marxism increasingly manifesting in America and
its NATO allies?
* What really happened to Russia after the Berlin Wall came down?
Like the solution to a giant jigsaw puzzle lacking one crucial
piece, Disinformation authoritatively provides the missing
dimension that makes the chaos of the modern world finally
understandable. By its very nature, a disinformation campaign can
work only if the seemingly independent Western press accepts
intentionally fabricated lies and presents them to the public as
truth. Thus, Pacepa and Rychlak also document how the U.S.
"mainstream media's" enduring sympathy for all things liberal-left
has made it vulnerable to--indeed, the prime carrier
of--civilization-transforming campaigns of lying, defamation and
historical revisionism that turn reality on its head.
* How destroying the reputation of good leaders has been
developed into a high art and science.
* How Pope Pius XII --a generation ago the world's most
high-profile Christian leader, who personally saved countless
Jews from Hitler's Holocaust--was transformed, through the
magic of disinformation, into a Nazi sympathizer.
* How Christianity and Judaism have been targeted for constant
denigration and defamation through an ongoing campaign of
* How the Soviet bloc planted 4,000 agents of influence in the
Islamic world, armed with hundreds of thousands of copies of
the most infamous anti-Semitic book in history, to fan the
flames of ancient Arab resentments against the U.S. and Israel
and sow the seeds of anti-Semitism that would later bloom in
the form of violence and terror toward Jews and Christians.
* How the defamatory attacks on American soldiers John Kerry
made before Congress upon his return from Vietnam--charges
later discredited and repudiated--were identical to a
contemporaneous KGB disinformation campaign concocted to turn
Americans against their own leaders.
* How supposedly respectable institutions like the World Council
of Churches have long been infiltrated and controlled by
* How much of the world came to believe that the U.S. government
itself masterminded the assassination of President John F.
* How the Soviet Union has been transformed into the first
intelligence dictatorship in history.
* How disinformation is still very much alive in the age of
Obama, remaining a powerful engine in the ongoing socialist
transformation of America.
All this and much more is meticulously documented in
Disinformation, with the credibility of an eyewitness who was not
only there, but actively involved as a Soviet bloc spy chief--who,
thanks to a crisis of conscience, "left the dark side" and came to
America to help shine a light on the greatest source of political
evil of the modern age.

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.
