The manipulative use of information by secret services was a spread phenomenon during the Cold War. By the 1950’s the Soviet secret police had developed a department for this field of work: Service “A” of the First Chief Department of the KGB, in charge of “active measures”. During the following decades the KGB encouraged his “fraternal organs” to carry out similar operations. Nonetheless, up until today little is known about this aspect of Socialist intelligence work.
