The most recent governments secrets to be revealed by Edward Snowden show some of the disgusting tactics that governments have been using against political activists to “ruin reputations,” execute “false flag operations” and more. A previously secret PowerPoint presentation titled The Art of Deception: Training for Online Covert Operations has now been published in it’s entirety. The slides were prepared and assembled by the British Government Center Headquarter’s (GCHQ) previously secret unit, JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group).
The information was shared with the NSA as well as equivalent organizations in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. Among the tips included is the “honey pot” (where sex or the expectation of sex is used to manipulate or lead a target into a compromising situation.
