At least they are admitting it now.

Are "organic assets" sort of like OIL in the gulf?

I've been busy today and have not have a chance to dive in yet, I caught that domestic reference though. Yeah and what's their definition of organic asset? Hmm, no definition in the glossary. I notice it's been tidied up a bit with a lot of references deleted...

I found a copy at a more reliable location

PSYOPS Manual Revised Joint Publication 3-13.2
published Jan 07, 2010
http://www.dtic.mil/doctrine/new_pubs/jp3_13_2.pdf

Quote :
psychological operations. Planned operations to convey selected
information and indicators to foreign audiences to influence their
emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of
foreign governments, organizations, groups, and individuals. The purpose
of psychological operations is to induce or reinforce foreign attitudes
and behavior favorable to the originator’s objectives
. Also called
PSYOP.

Quote :
PSYOP are governed by explicit legal authorities that direct and
determine how the capability is utilized. This legal foundation
establishes PSYOP as a communications means, and allows their
integration with those strategies that apply the instruments of national
power. Leaders and planners accurately interpret relevant laws and
policies to employ PSYOP forces in any situation or environment,
internationally and domestically. The outcome of this level of
proficiency is the effective incorporation of PSYOP as an integral
component of US measures designed to achieve national
objectives.

Quote :
Each Service has the inherent capability to support achievement of US national
objectives by using organic assets for production and dissemination of PSYOP products.
Aircraft, ships, units, and military equipment can have deliberate psychological effects on
TAs when used in or as a psychological operations action.


Quote :
“The role of psychological operations (PSYOP) in the information age is to
assist military commanders in articulating their mission objectives, to help
identify the decision makers who can promote or interfere with these
objectives, and to recommend appropriate courses of action to properly
influence them
. In this regard, PSYOP are applicable across the operational
continuum because command objectives may vary at any point in time and
because key decision makers exist at every level of military endeavor. . . . By
converting command objectives into the people who have the ability to act on
them, and by recommending the use of available military and nonmilitary
resources, PSYOP Soldiers attempt to educate and motivate targeted
decision makers to act, or refrain from acting, in ways that support the
commander’s objectives.


Colonel Robert M. Schoenhaus
7th PSYOP Group Commander, June 1999
Field Manual 3-05.30, Psychological Operations


Quote :
PSYOP are a key capability in furthering US endeavors
to deter aggression, and to maximize the commander’s
efforts to shape the operational environment, insert
combat forces, neutralize the threat, and secure the
region. When authorized, PSYOP forces may be used
domestically
to assist lead federal agencies during
disaster relief and crisis management by informing the
domestic population.


Quote :
PSYOP forces can provide civil authority information
support elements (CAISEs) within the United States and
its territories
. When authorized for employment in this
manner, PSYOP forces utilize their media development,
production, and dissemination capabilities to deliver
administrative and command information to populations
in the impacted area. Their mission becomes to inform
rather than to influence.

Quote :

. The outcome of this level of proficiency is the effective incorporation of
PSYOP as an integral component of US measures designed to achieve national
objectives.


Quote :
Military PA (Public Affairs) forces plan, coordinate, and synchronize public information,
command information, and community engagement activities and resources to support
the commander’s operational objectives. Through timely dissemination of factual
information to international and domestic audiences, PA puts operational actions in
context, facilitates the development of informed perceptions about military operations
among information consumers, and undermines adversarial information efforts. PA
operations and activities shall not focus on directing or manipulating public actions or
opinion.


Quote :
PSYOP are a key capability in furthering US endeavors to deter aggression, and
to maximize the commander’s efforts to shape the operational environment, insert combat
forces, neutralize the threat, and secure the region. When PSYOP are integrated
properly, the risk to friendly forces is minimized and collateral damage and expenditures
of assets can be significantly reduced. CCDRs also incorporate PSYOP into activities to
support military engagement, security cooperation, and deterrence. In these efforts, it is
common for PSYOP to be used as a primary means to inform and influence. When
authorized, PSYOP forces may be used domestically to assist lead federal agencies
during disaster relief and crisis management by informing the domestic population
.


Quote :
Army Service PSYOP assets provide a vital instrument of engagement across all
military phases in support of the full range of military operations and interagency
coordination in a foreign setting and under special circumstances during domestic
emergencies as well
.



Quote :
(2) Situation Monitoring

(a) How will intelligence, multidiscipline counterintelligence, security
monitoring, and operational feedback be provided
?
(b) What is the requirement for running situation estimates; periodic
estimates of target appreciations responsive to information, actions, and attitudes and
behavior; and current reporting of intelligence and multidiscipline counterintelligence
information, security monitoring results, and implementing actions?
(c) What resources are required? What is their availability?

(3) Control
(a) How will control be affected and implementation centrally coordinated?
(b) What are the coordinating instructions?
(c) How will implementation planning and supervision of the planned
action be accomplished?
(d) What is the need for specific PSYOP?
(e) What coordination is required with adjacent commands and civilian
agencies, to include US diplomatic missions and US Agency for International
Development?


Quote :
c. Use of indigenous dissemination means. The determining factor in selection of
dissemination means is the target audience analysis (TAA) process. To maximize TA
receptivity to PSYOP, planning should incorporate the use of indigenous resources, key
communicators
, and dissemination platforms
as soon as operationally feasible.
Communications through indigenous means generally have greater credibility than
PSYOP disseminated through USG (US Gov't) broadcast assets.

Sometimes I wonder how much the release of documents like this are also part of the psyop.

So, this is how they create frames that they then lock us into so that one segment of the population can not understand another.

Vital Lies, Simple Truths: The Psychology of Self-Deception
Daniel Goleman

http://www.amazon.com/Vital-Lies-Simple-Truths-Self-Deception/dp/0684831074

Vital Lies, Simple Truths is a penetrating analysis of the ways we deceive ourselves. Daniel Goleman draws on evidence of all kinds—from brain function to social dynamics—to reveal how we skew our most intimate relationships, our day-to-day lives, and our common reality by burying painful insights and memories. This self-deception is our means of psychic self-preservation, the currency of survival in which an entire society colludes. But although self-deception is sometimes benign, it can also be dangerous and life-diminishing. This important book both illuminates and raises challenging questions about a subject that is central to our psychological existence.

Goleman states his thesis using three premises in the early pages of his book (p. 22):
(1) The mind can protect itself against anxiety by dimming awareness.
(2) This mechanism creates a blind spot: a zone of blocked attention and self-deception.
(3) Such blind spots occur at each major level of behavior from the psychological to the social.

Employing these principles, Goleman explains why we cover our anxieties with delusional behaviors, focusing on the many ways in which our minds play tricks on us. Goleman uses a series of short vignettes, from business, political and family scenarios, to illustrate his arguments.

Goleman touches on perception, self-esteem, projection, rationalization, sublimation, and the links between the psychic numbing of awareness and the addiction to materialism as an opiate (instant gratification).

I guess the term Psy Ops sounds to malicious to us proles so now they have to sell it to us with a different name and lie about what they do. Anyways see for your self.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100702/ap_on_re_us/us_psy_ops_name_change

WILMINGTON, N.C. – The Army has dropped the Vietnam-era name "psychological operations" for its branch in charge of trying to change minds behind enemy lines, acknowledging the term can sound ominous.

The Defense Department picked a more neutral moniker: "Military Information Support Operations," or MISO.

U.S. Special Operations Command spokesman Ken McGraw said Thursday the new name, adopted last month, more accurately reflects the unit's job of producing leaflets, radio broadcasts and loudspeaker messages to influence enemy soldiers and civilians.

"One of the catalysts for the transition is foreign and domestic sensitivities to the term 'psychological operations' that often lead to a misunderstanding of the mission," McGraw said.

Fort Bragg is home to the 4th Psychological Operations Group, the Army's only active duty psychological operations unit. Psychological operations soldiers are trained at the post.

The name change is expected to extend to all military services, a senior defense official said in Washington. The official, who has direct knowledge of the change, spoke on condition of anonymity because not all services have announced how they will revamp or rename their psychological operations offices.

The change was driven from the top, by Pentagon policymakers working for Defense Secretary Robert Gates. It reflects unease with the Cold War echoes of the old terminology, and the implication that the work involved subterfuge.

The change, however, left some current practitioners of psychological operations cold. Gone is the cool factor, posters to online military blogs said. With a name like MISO, one wrote, you might as well join the supply command.

Alfred H. Paddock, Jr., a retired colonel who was Director for Psychological Operations in the Office of the Secretary of Defense from 1986 to 1988, said the term has always had some baggage and been difficult to explain.

"Somehow it gives a nefarious connotation, but I think that this baggage can be overcome," said Paddock, who also served three combat tours with Special Forces in Laos and Vietnam.

He said the military was giving in to political correctness by changing the name.

Psychological operations have been cast as spooky in movies and books over the years portraying the soldiers as master manipulators. The 2009 movie "The Men Who Stare at Goats," staring George Clooney, was about an army unit that trains psychic spies, based on Jon Ronson's nonfiction account of the U.S. military's hush-hush research into psychic warfare and espionage.

But the real mission is far more mundane. During the 2003 invasion of Iraq, psychological operations units dropped leaflets urging Iraqis to surrender.

In Vietnam, a psychological operations effort called the Open Arms Program bombarded Viet Cong units with surrender appeals written by former members. The program got approximately 200,000 Viet Cong fighters to defect.

McGraw said the name change was approved by Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Adm. Eric Olson, the Special Operations commander, in mid-June.

Many in the psychological operations community, including Paddock, dislike the new name.

"Military Information Support Operations, or MISO, is not something that rolls off the tip of your tongue," Paddock said. "It makes it even more difficult for psychological operations personnel to explain what they do. That they still have the capability to employ programs and themes designed to influence the behavior of foreign target audiences."
