Disinformation (Operation InfeKtion): How Russia Perfected the Art of War | NYT Opinion

“Russia’s meddling in the United States’ elections is not a hoax. It’s the culmination of  Moscow’s decades-long campaign to tear the West apart. “Operation InfeKtion” reveals the ways in which one of the Soviets’ central tactics — the promulgation of lies about America — continues today, from Pizzagate to George Soros conspiracies. Meet the KGB spies who conceived this virus and the American truth squads who tried — and are still trying — to fight it. Countries from Pakistan to Brazil are now debating reality, and in Vladimir Putin’s greatest triumph, Americans are using Russia’s playbook against one another without the faintest clue.” (The New York Times)
