Amid all the hoopla,  outrage,  paranoia, fear, uncertainty and doubt expressed over the influence operation pulled off before and early in OIF are occassional nuggets of PSYOP goodness like this:

From PSYOP to MindWar: The Psychology of Victory by Colonel Paul E. Vallely, 1980.

Yeah. That Paul Vallely. And I mean that in a good way.

 UPDATE:  Paul Vallely sees a high-profile New York Times story on military talking heads as a hatchet job.

“The American people will understand it’s bullshit. It’s bullshit coming out of the Times,” Vallely said. “Nobody ever directed what we said.”

“I’m not happy with the Defense Department backing down because of the newspapers, especially the New York Times,” Vallely said. “I think it makes it look weak.”

And Vallely is the host of a talk radio show called “Stand up America,” which is broadcast on the Internet. Some of his columns have appeared as guest opinions in The Daily Inter Lake.

“Everyone told it like it was except Wes Clark, who had a political agenda,” Vallely said.
