Deception: Appeal for Acceptance; Discourse on Doctrine; Preface to Planning

Comparative Strategy

Publication Date: April-June 2003

The United States has rarely resorted to strategic deception, even when appropriate opportunities for its use have occurred and even though its adversaries have used it. The U.S. tends to view deception as unacceptable; yet, used knowledgeably and artfully, it can be a powerful, economic, and sometimes decisive instrument.

That will involve a significant new effort.  {read more}
