Can you say "Dezinformatsionnaya Operatsiya?"
I'd heard a lot about the greatest intelligence leak of all time. 90,000 secret documents, with tons of damaging information about the US war on Afghanistan. So I downloaded the famous Wikileak Excel file, and started looking for some choice bits of anti-war propaganda.
