Bin Laden’s Alleged ‘Porn Stash’ May be CIA PsyOp

According to IntellNews, "it appears that only Danger Room‘s Spencer Ackerman thought it wise to air a brief disclaimer to the effect that the “welcomed disclosure” may in fact be “a CIA information operation”. "

Spreading rumors of alleged sexual impropriety to encourage disillusion among adherents of adversary ideologies was used by the Allies and the Axis alike during World War II —most effectively by Nazi media propagandist Julius Streicher. Soon afterwards, it was turned into a science by the Cold War’s principal adversaries. After the Sino-Soviet split, the Soviet KGB circulated countless stories about Chinese communist leader Mao Zedong’s alleged preference for underage virgins from the Chinese countryside, supposedly delivered to him every evening by his trusted advisers. According to the Mitrokhin Archive, the Soviets were also instrumental in encouraging rumors about FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s alleged homosexuality.

IMO: Of course, many such accusations have been true, if often contrived. The Hoover accusations still ring true, to many, and quite likely were true. We have currently the example of Strauss-Kahn and whether true or not, it seems clearly to have misreported with glee in the US and UK.
