It’s pretty easy to hoax people. We all want to be deceived, but only up to a point. Some hoaxes are fun and pleasant, others malicious and unpleasant. We’d like a way to tell the difference (Robert Carroll).

Military Hoaxes

Military intelligence is a military discipline which informs the commanders’ decision making process by providing analysis of available data from a wide range of sources and forecasting of environmental changes and opposing force intentions. To provide that informed analysis the commanders information requirements are identified and input to a process of gathering, analysis, protection, and dissemination of information about the operational environment, hostile, friendly and neutral forces and the civilian population in an area of combat operations, and broader area of interest. Intelligence activities are conducted at all levels from tactical to strategic, in peacetime, the period of transition to war, and during the war.

Military hoaxes are probably the most useful category among all, since its intentions are to provide “reliable” but false information to the enemy or any other third parties in order to make the unexpected moves the most efficient way.
