The Pentagon has purchased a pioneering software programme that creates fake identities on social media websites, in an attempt to infiltrate and influence suspected terrorists and extremists overseas......The $2.7 million (£1.7 million) programme developed by San Diego firm Ntrepid allows one military user to create multiple personas on the internet and engage in extended online conversations and communications with suspects.
Interventions would not be conducted in English, but languages such as Arabic, Urdu and Pashto. ....." And If You Think That D.H.S Wont Grab This Software You're Very Naive."
According to military procurement documents seen by the Washington Times, the software will "enable an operator to exercise a number of different online persons from the same workstation and without fear of being discovered by sophisticated adversaries".
......"Personas must be able to appear to originate in nearly any part of the world," the documents stated.
A spokesman for the US Central Command region, which includes the Middle East, Pakistan and Afghanistan, said that psychological warfare scheme was operating only on overseas social media sites......"We do not target US audiences, and we do not conduct these activities on sites owned by U.S. companies," he said.
