You know nothing about history or reality if you don't understand the intelligence history. Welcome aboard. With this type of knowledge you understand how the ship of state is operated and controlled and the understanding of the mass public is nothing more than a fairy tale. 


The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was a wartime intelligence agency of the United States during World War II, and a predecessor to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The OSS was formed as an agency of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) to coordinate espionage activities behind enemy lines for all branches of the United States Armed Forces. Other OSS functions included the use of propaganda, subversion, and post-war planning. On December 14, 2016, the organization was collectively honored with a Congressional Gold Medal.
