Another volley in the BS IO.
NATO study has found that nearly 90 percent of such killings stem from
personal disputes or outrage rather than insurgent plots to infiltrate
the security forces or use them as cover for attacks.
John M. agrees that it is infiltrators.
is clear that USG + MIL - in order to make their ridiculous IO
narrative fly - have redefined "infiltrator" to mean someone who simply
puts on a black market uniform and slips behind enemy lines to grease
Coalition forces. I'm sure CI folks would object to such a limited
definition. Even with such sophistry, the narrative proves false.
As we have argued for years (since the mess hall in Mosul, Iraq was
blown up by someone mil announced was wearing a "black market uniform" -
and investigation revealed to have been a infiltrated employee of the
base), there is a determined information campaign to downplay the
infiltrator problem in particular and the seriousness of insurgent
challenges to post 9/11 US-led war efforts in general.
Domestic-facing Morale Operations do pay dividends. Ask many
Americans who was the winner of the Iraq War and you will discover - to
the surprise of everyone in the region - that it was the USA.
Indisputable that something like this is planned for our eventual withdrawal from Afghanistan.
