November 3, 2012 A Presidential Campaign, but No Presidential or National Narrative By Amy Zalman A presidential campaign is an exercise in storytelling. Each candidate is always seeking to tell the most compelling story of the nation, one that both reflects who we think we are and projects into the future the kind of nation [...]
This is unadulterated censorship, without a sugar coating. While the title implies the Chinese government is doing this, there is no proof. The problem is ‘if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck, it’s probably China’. Oops, I meant it’s probably a duck. Cyber War: China Hacks Into [...]
As cyberwarfare heats up, allies turn to U.S. companies for expertise Ellen Nakashima Published: November 22 In the spring of 2010, a sheik in the government of Qatar began talks with the U.S. consulting company Booz Allen Hamilton about developing a plan to build a cyber-operations center. He feared Iran’s growing ability to attack its [...]
Indian Village Bans Unmarried Women And Girls From Using Mobile Phones from the sexist,-moi? dept http://www.techdirt.com/blog/wireless/articles/20121205/08294221238/indian-village-bans-unmarried-women-girls-using-mobile-phones.shtml It’s fairly widely accepted that the key digital device in the future will be the mobile phone, not the desktop computer that has had such an impact on Western society for the last few decades. That’s partly a question [...]
After an exhaustive search, I recognize there is no ‘community’ calendar for IO, SC, PD or Cyber, so I’m taking the lead. Thank you to Bob King for the inspiration and the kick in my seat. I’m standing up a community calendar for the IO, SC, PD and Cyber Communities since nobody has seen the [...]
Book Lecture with James Farwell: Persuasion and Power: The Art of Strategic Communication by cultureandsecurity You are cordially invited to a special lecture with author James P. Farwell as he discusses his new book Persuasion and Power: The Art of Strategic Communication Monday, January 14 4:30 PM The Institute of World Politics 1521 16th Street NW [...]
I read a friend’s note to me today and I realized that I am free to speak from my heart, whereas those currently in the government, especially in or working for the military are constrained to work within the confines of their published doctrine and it is very difficult, if not impossible, to evolve quickly. [...]

Pentagon Abandons Strategic Communication? Author: Brian Carlson Tuesday, December 18th 2012 http://www.publicdiplomacycouncil.org/commentaries/12-18-12/pentagon-abandons-strategic-communication A couple of public diplomacy colleagues have asked me what we should think of the Pentagon memo issued earlier this month, the one that seems to say Strategic Communication is out. Over. Finished. “What did you say?” Does this mean the end of [...]
BY ROSA BROOKS | DECEMBER 6, 2012 I must have sinned egregiously during a past life, because when I arrived at the Pentagon in spring 2009, I was handed responsibility for the can of worms known as “strategic communication.” I was a newly minted political appointee in the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s policy [...]
Authors: Major General (Ret’d) Andrew Mackay, Commander Steve Tatham PhD, Dr Lee Rowland Abstract: This paper challenges the findings of a 2012 RAND study into US Information Operations (IO) in Afghanistan. Whilst agreeing with RAND that if the overall IO mission in Afghanistan is defined as convincing most residents of contested areas to side decisively [...]

Here I sit, brokenhearted. Tried to poop but only passed gas. It doesn’t sound right, that joke? If you’re in China, Russia or Outer Carjackistan (my favorite mythical country), chances are you’re never going to get that joke. If you really want to know the joke, leave me a comment and I’ll reply with the [...]

First, an apology. My concussion was a bit worse than I thought and mentally, at times, I still feel like I’m swimming in thick sludge. I write this blog when I am inspired and this fog usually prevents me from giving a rat’s patootie about a lot of things. Yesterday I was chatting with a [...]
By Paul Rosenzweig Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 4:34 PM The old joke goes: “What’s denial?” Answer: “A river in Egypt.” Apparently it now flows through China too. Here’s a taste from Global Times: The absurd allegation that a Chinese military unit is behind cyber attacks against the US government and firms continues to ferment. [...]
I received an interesting phone call today, from a well respected authority in the ‘cyber’ field. Apparently the Intelligence and Cyber Communities are spinning up, thinking that China is about to launch retaliatory cyber attacks in response to the Mandiant report. I couldn’t help but voice my disbelief. China has nothing to gain and everything [...]

Oh, yes. Republic of China, thank you for following my script. BBC News – US hackers attacked military websites, says China’s defence ministry. Hackers from the US have repeatedly launched attacks on two Chinese military websites, including that of the Defence Ministry, officials say. The sites were subject to about 144,000 hacking attacks each month [...]

Now this… My head is reeling. China has no cyber warfare troops: spokesman Source: XINHUA | 2013-2-28 | ONLINE EDITION http://www.shanghaidaily.com/article/article_xinhua.asp?id=128093 BEIJING, Feb. 28 (Xinhua) — A military spokesman said Thursday that China does not have any soldiers engaging in cyber warfare. The inclusion of “blue teams” in Chinese military drills is done to enhance [...]
I’ve had a love affair with propaganda my whole life. I grew up after World War II, during the Cold War, joined the Army and was stationed in West Germany, opposite the Soviets and the East Germans, I was in Korea during Desert Shield and Desert Storm, then I wound up in DC doing IO [...]

Photo: Jurvetson/Flickr There once was a military contractor who met a great woman at a professional conference. Before long, he was so taken with her that he told her secrets about America’s deadliest weapons. You don’t want [...]
A Superficial Death of Soft Power: It’s another Made-Up Term. March 18th, 2013 By Black Pheonix One might as well call it “the Pink Powdery Pixie Dust of Hippie Magic,” because it is really quite a made-up concept that doesn’t make sense relative to its own applications. Joseph Nye first defined and popularized the notion [...]
