Two-Way Deception Traffic on the Road to Theater High Altitude Area Defense by Gordon Mitchell Assistant Professor Department of Communication University of Pittsburgh December 1997

During the Cold War, U.S. missile defense officials routinely rigged scientific experiments and deliberately misled Congress in order to create the impression that invention of a Star Wars-style nuclear shield was a realistic and imminent possibility. These brash strategies of deception were carried out under the umbrella of official misinformation policies adopted by the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization (SDIO), a highly secretive branch of the Department of Defense charged with administering the U.S. missile defense program.
