These are notes on covert ops I’ve made over the years. They apply to any arena where deception is the name of the game.
Every covert op needs a cover story. That is, the public must be made to look in the wrong direction.
A cover story not only hides the identity of perpetrators, it also imparts the wrong meaning to the event being staged.
Example: a war is set in motion, in order to bankrupt several governments. But the public is told the war means: “protecting democracy.”
Major covert ops have more than one objective. A war will bankrupt governments; it will also result in a peace treaty that creates a larger cooperative structure than previously existed, spanning several nations—and the men who end up running that larger structure are the same men who triggered the war in the first place. They wind up with more control and power than they had before.
Covert ops of great size and importance must include the laying of false trails. Thus, in the wake of the op, investigators will find clues that lead them down roads that come, eventually, to alleys that dead-end against blank walls.
In the process, they discover perpetrators who weren’t really perpetrators. They discover motives that weren’t true motives. They pick up hints that were deposited like break crumbs to divert and mislead.
In case some element of the actual covert op is revealed, there is the limited hangout. This is a confession. It offers a mea culpa, but only concerning a relatively trivial factor.
“Yes, our agency did make mistakes, and those mistakes led to the loss of public funds. But we are taking steps to assure nothing like this ever happens again…”
And of course, in order to “take steps,” the agency needs a larger budget.
