Mission Creep

June 27, 2009

Mission creep is the expansion of a project or mission beyond its original goals, often after initial successes. A term of disapproval, mission creep is usually considered undesirable due to the dangerous path of each success breeding more ambitious attempts, only stopping when a final, often catastrophic, failure occurs. The term was originally applied exclusively to military operations, but is applicable to intelligence and espionage, as well the growth of bureaucracies and corporations. A prime example is the covert action COINTEL FACTOR targeting US citizens. Is it really over? [more to come]

I want to do something to ensure that the dirty tricks of the US Govt get connected to the so called Congressional apology for slavery. What not expand that apology to include an apology for discrimination period which is depicted in the videos.

These two videos on you tube are relatively old but for the first time I see Covert Action Intelligence describing COINTEL PRO. That is new and accurate. The originators of these two videos understood and did the right thing.
