The Onion: Facebook ‘Is Truly A Dream Come True For The CIA’ (Video)

CIAFacebookThanks to Erick Schonfeld on Techcrunch for the find.

Even though this is intended to be a joke, the CIA’s interest in what it calls “open source intelligence” has been documented (see here and here).

Via the Onion:

After years of secretly monitoring the public, we were astounded so many people would willingly publicize where they live, their religious and political views, an alphabetized list of all their friends, personal emails addresses, phone numbers, hundreds of photos of themselves, and even status updates about what they were doing moment to moment. It is truly a dream come true for the CIA.

    The obvious objective of those in charge of disinformation is to provide satirical stories in order for those to read, research and decide the story is make believe. With true disinformation making people believe truth is an untruth is the name of the game.
