Subject: [INFOPEACE] Office of Strategic Influence keeps coming back

Back in March 2002 the InfoTechWarPeace Project launched an
InfoIntervention on the rise and fall of the Office of Strategic
influence [
], one of the Pentagons more blatant attempts to manage the perceptions
of foreign media and policymakers through an infowar campaign of
dissimulation and deception.

We questioned its official demise, and it now appears that our
suspicions have been confirmed by Eric Schmitt, who writes this week in
the New York Times [ ] that the
Pentagon recently awarded a contract to SAIC, a major defense
consultant (in fact, more like a shadow government at this point see
Virtuous War, pp. 106-108), to study how the Defense Department might
create effective strategic influence in the war against global terror.
The Pentagon denied that they were trying to resurrect the OSI, and
SAIC referred all questions to the Pentagon. It seems it will take a
wooden stake to kill this benighted creation of the infowar campaign.
