Pinkerton: Targeting Americans with ‘Disinformation’

After 9/11, the U.S. government discovered how to use information tactics and it now uses those tools against Americans.

The Great War on Terror may have ended in defeat for the United States, but the battle for American liberty remains in the hands of our technological elites.

Hoax of the Century

In a 13,000-word piece for Tablet magazine entitled “A Guide to Understanding the Hoax of the Century,” Jacob Siegel makes this claim.

It comes in an effort to shed light on a high-level deception committed against the American people by wealthy individuals who consider themselves to be invincible.

Such infallible wealthy individuals particularly think they are defending the world against disinformation, which includes anything they consider to be untrue regarding Russia, Ukraine, Donald Trump, COVID, climate change, election rigging, and Brexit.

They seek to protect us against every type of false information you can think of.

These individuals and organizations were first trained in infowar strategies related to 9/11 and the Great War on Terror; however, they seem not to be concerned about jihadis at the moment.

So, these information war professionals have transformed into disinfowar specialists. Their newest target, whom they see to be ignorant fools or worse, is the American people, backed by resources the size of the Pentagon.

According to Siegel, what initially began as a means to fight a distant foe gradually expanded into a totalitarian dream of perpetual warfare targeting the false beliefs and sentiments of everyday people closer to home.

The fantasy of totalitarianism is very 1984.

Name-dropping, Siegel mentions the Global Engagement Center (GEC) of the State Department, which was established by President Barack Obama in 2016 and is still operational today.

The GEC approaches its objective with the broadest perspective feasible, which includes domestic targets, or Americans.

American Rights

Michael D. Lumpkin, the first chairman of the GEC, is quoted by Siegel as being critical of laws that uphold American citizens’ rights, which include the 1974 Privacy Act.
