Psyops in Iraq

The U.S. has already launched psychological warfare operations in Iraq, including "leafleting, radio and TV broadcasts, even personal phone calls and e-mails, as well as secret techniques the public knows little about," reports Michael Kilian. "Since Jan. 18, U.S. psyops planes have made no fewer than 10 runs over southern Iraq, dropping as many as 480,000 leaflets at a time." Other psyops planners are discussing strategies such as sending misleading text messages to the cell phones of Iraqi commanders, hacking computers, jamming radar, and disrupting bank accounts.
