WASHINGTON — A $300 million Pentagon psychological warfare operation includes plans for placing pro-American messages in foreign media outlets without disclosing the U.S. government as the source, one of the military officials in charge of the program says.

So, what do you guys think?
While the US could use a bit of better publicity around the world, this plan is gonna backfire. Never a good thing when word of our clandestine duplicity gets out.

Makes me wonder if other countries have tried doing to us.
