Just what is the Office of Strategic Influence? This newly formed government agency may be out on a mission to engage in tactics of misinformation to spread propaganda. Is the spreading of untruths to combat terrorism a bad idea?

If our government is going to invest ongoing efforts in spreading false information, maybe we are going to have to learn more about how propaganda works.
