Date 1988
Description Since the advent of the atomic era, the United States has decided to wage war by covert means, intervening secretly in the election, selection and direction of governments in other countries. Our weapons are subversive propaganda, including "black" propaganda and disinformation; undermining the economies of countries whose governments we oppose, and waging war, albeit covert war: assassination, terrorism, destruction of economic facilities, mining of harbors, instigation of insurrections and coups, and creation, training, support and provisioning of insurgents.
