Morale Operations

Here is some cool true trivia and conspiracy theorist feed.

The OSS Morale Operations (MO) branch produced and disseminated ‘black’ propaganda to destabilize enemy governments and encourage resistance movements at the strategic and tactical levels. OSS Director William J. Donovan believed that “persuasion, penetration, and intimidation” were modern day counterparts to “sapping and mining in the siege warfare of former days.”

The 1943 manual was short.

Next time someone tells you Masons run everything, show them this and, if even following rules, FBI DIOG 16.2 specifically allows influencing behavior in any organizations, which can include Masons, through UDP but agent or CHS’s. Of course one is for foreign operations, the other for domestic. Other countries also follow similar methods.
