Information Operations Roadmap


Information Operations Roadmap

The Information Operations Roadmap is a document commissioned by the Pentagon in 2003 and declassified in January 2006. The document was personally approved by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld [http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/NSAEBB/NSAEBB177/index.htm Rumsfeld's Roadmap to Propaganda] by National Security Archive, January 26, 2006] , and describes the United States Military's approach to Information warfare, with an emphasis on the Internet.

The operations described in the document include a wide range of military activities: Public affairs officers who brief journalists, psychological operations troops who try to manipulate the thoughts and beliefs of an enemy, computer network attack specialists who seek to destroy enemy networks, and a major disinformation project to plant false stories in any available news media.
