The Pentagon Is Reportedly Auditing the U.S. Military's Own Pro-America Social Media Psyop

View On source

Pentagon officials are looking into the Department of Defense’s own secret use of social media to stoke pro-U.S. sentiments overseas, according to a report from The Washington Post. The alleged review follows news from last month that Twitter and Meta have both uncovered and removed a linked network of dozens of fake, apparently pro-U.S. accounts targeting social media users abroad.

Colin Kahl, undersecretary for policy at the DoD, reportedly requested that all military branches conducting online psychological operations fully account for their activities by next month. He announced the review at a National Security Council meeting last Tuesday, said The Post, citing multiple, unnamed sources.
