THE PSYCHOLOGICAL STRATEGY BOARD aka THE OPERATIONS COORDINATION BOARD aka THE SPEciaL GROUP

On 20 June 1951 Harry S. Truman signed a directive establishing the Psychological Strategy Board. The directive read, "Directive to: the Secretary of State, The Secretary of Defense, The Director of Central Intelligence: It is the purpose of this directive to authorize and provide for the more effective planning, coordination and conduct, within the framework of approved national policies, of psychological operations. There is hereby established a Psychological Strategy Board responsible, within the purposes and terms of this directive, for the formulation and promulgation, as guidance to the departments and agencies responsible for psychological operations, of over-all national psychological objectives, policies and programs, and for the coordination and evaluation of the national psychological effort.

The Board will report to the National Security Council on the Board's activities and on its evaluation of the national psychological operations, including implementation of approved objectives, policies, and programs by the departments and agencies concerned. The Board shall be composed of: a. The Undersecretary of State, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, and the Director of Central Intelligence, or, in their absence, their appropriate designees; b. An appropriate representative of the head of each such other department or agency of the Government as may, from time to time, be determined by the Board. The Board shall designate one of its members as Chairman. A representative of the Joint Chiefs of Staff shall sit with the Board as its principal military adviser in order that the Board may ensure that its objectives, policies and programs shall be related to approved plans for military operations..."

The director and architect of the Psychological Strategy Board was Gordon Gray. Henry Kissinger was Gray's consultant. Kissinger was also the paid political consultant to Rockefeller family. Gray, Kissinger, and Rockefeller were members of the Council on Foreign Relations. Gray served in the administrations of Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford. Gordon Gray was heir to the R. J. Reynolds tobacco fortune and President of the University of North Carolina. Gray was a broadcast and publication media specialist. Gray was instrumental in keeping the uniformed electorate uninformed by  [missing text? -Ed.]

Eisenhower signed Presidential Executive Order 10483 replacing the Psychological Strategy board with the Operations Coordinating Board. The Operations Coordinating Board was composed of (1) The Under Secretary of State, who shall represent the Secretary of State and shall be the chairman of the Board. (2) The Deputy Secretary of Defense, show shall represent the Secretary of Defense. (3) the Director of the Foreign Operations Administration (4) the Director of Central Intelligence, and (5) a representative of the President to be designated by the President. (6) the Undersecretary or corresponding official of any Presidential agency that has been assigned responsibilities for implementation of national security policy. (7) The Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (8) The Director of the United States Information Agency. On 19 February 1961, President John F. Kennedy issued a Statement abolishing the Operations Coordinating Board.

No President ever wrote or signed an Executive order establishing the Special Group. No President had a way of abolishing the Special Group. The Special Group was not established by Executive Order, it established itself. This was no accident. This was illegal. When Kennedy killed the Operations Coordinating Board, the Special Group operated as normal without the designated Presidential representative.

The Special Group is alive and well today. It consists of the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, and the Director of The CIA, none of which are elected officials. The only way to abolish this ad hoc committee is to abolish the Department of Defense, The Central Intelligence Agency and the Department of State. President Clinton, Secretary of State Warren Christopher, and Director of the CIA John Deutch and his predecessor James Woolsely belong to the Council on Foreign Relations. Les Aspin, Secretary of Defense William Perry's predecessor also belonged to the Council on Foreign Relations.


The Joint Chiefs of Staff have defined psychological operations (PSYOPS) as those that:

"include psychological warfare and, in addition, encompass those political, military, economic and ideological actions planned and conducted to create in neutral or friendly foreign groups the emotions, attitudes, or behavior to support achievement of national objectives." Another proposal"develops the concept of 'strategic psychological operations' as aimed at influencing and shaping decision-makers' power to govern or control their followers." Wake up America, we the American people, are among the groups being targeted and controlled.

Council on Foreign Relations members in the State Department, The National Security Council, the Central Intelligence Agency, and in the Department of Defense continue to control the lives of the American people through well planed psycho-political operations. These psychological operations rob American citizens of the present, by creating false reality worlds. These false reality worlds are created to trick the American public into acting not in their own best interest but in the best interest of a group of subtle fascists intent on creating one world order under their control.


The Council on Foreign Relations is a branch of an international group of co-conspirators called the Round Table Group.

Council on Foreign Relations members control both Government agency, and "private-industry" news sources. Round Table Group members in different nations control the news sources in their countries. The Council on Foreign Relations propaganda machine manipulates American Citizens to accept the particular climate of opinion the Round Table Groups are seeking to achieve in the world. Council on Foreign Relations members working in an ad hoc committee called the "Special Group" and through a vast intragovernmental undercover infrastructure called the "Secret Team" formulate this opinion in the United States.

Other branches include; Britain's Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Canadian Institute of International Affairs, the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs, the Australian Institute of International Affairs, the South African Institute of International Affairs, the Indian Institute of International Affairs, the Netherlands Institute of International Affairs, the Japanese Institute of Pacific Relations, the Chinese Institute of Pacific Relations, and the Russian Institute of Pacific Relations.
