Sludge Report #147: Sludge Gets Psy-oped!

Poindexter’s Information Awareness Office Logo
Since removed from the website – Probably for being too spooky

IMAGE EXPLANATORY NOTE: Admiral John Poindexter, a convicted felon of Iran-Contra (pardoned by George Bush Senior.) was voted millions in the Homeland Security Act last year to implement a global computer based spying initiative examining your eftpos receipts, library withdrawals and email correspondence.

Sludge Report #147

Feeling Confused Yet?

Feeling confused about the war yet? If so it is not surprising.

Confusing people looks like it may be the official Bush Administration and military industrial PR strategy for starting their war .

How hard are they willing to go to confuse people? Well anyone reading Scoop’s International news wire and the speeches of Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Armitage and Paul Wolfowitz and John Bolton will know in spades how far.

But this public face of US information is just the tip of the iceberg. For some new and truly bizarre evidence concerning the US misinformation warfare effort see…

US Intelligence

This was sent to Scoop from “Access One Network Northwest DSI (Defense Security Intelligence)”, an organisation located on the AONN.Gov domain by someone signing themselves off as:

“Jessica M. Daniels, DSIN Public Affairs Officer
DSIN Public Affairs
206.666.8078 (24x7 PST)”

You will see that the domain has now gone. However the site can still be seen for now in the Google Cache (Here and Here and has been mirrored.)

Read enough yet… I am sure all readers will agree that this PDF and website is complete garbage (Feedback is welcome on this point – in fact readers are challenged to find intelligible and amusing highlights in this document. )


122 Pages Of Carefully Fabricated Crypto BS

This is extremely odd.

122 pages of carefully fabricated crypto fascistic bullshit? But from a .Gov (US Government) controlled namespace? Could it be the work of hackers? Yes maybe. But at a .Gov domain? And more importantly why?

Following some research Sludge is inclined to think that this is far more likely another dollop of totally bizarrrro work from the people who brought you Total Information Awareness , Go Pills for pilots in charge of lethal payloads, a pill for soldiers so they stop feeling bad about killing people and the new White House Office of Global Communications .

Thinking as Much Sludge wrote to Jessica saying:

Please forgive me.... what on earth is this thing you have sent us? (US Intelligence.pdf)

There seems to be some strange stuff about AONN one the web.... always long..... always seemingly impenetrable....


None of which makes what you have sent me make any more sense.

Can you please provide some explanation of this?

Go figure!!!! And now they are gone… with narry a word of explanation. Like thieves in the ether.


Col. Flagg’s Perspective

Sludge is reminded of a couple of quotes from the immortalised CIA Korean War operative Col. Flagg, from the hit TV series M.A.S.H.

"It's the duty of every real American to be on the lookout for goldbricks, pinko's, and fellow travelers. 'Course, without the likes of Americans like you, the jobs of Americans like me would be a lot more difficult. But don't get me wrong, Americans like me like difficult jobs. So don't get the idea you're doing the CIA any favors. We don't really need Americans like you, we don't need anybody."
~Col. Flagg

“I've got to nip this rotten apple in the bud! This sort of action's contageous. One man decides he's not gonna fight, it catches on, the next thing, you know what you've got on your hands? “
~Col. Flagg

B.J.: Peace?
Quo Vadis, Captain Chandler?
Frank: But my orders are--
Col. Flagg: The CIA can supercede anyone's orders.
Frank: Except the president, of course.
Flagg: Give it time.
