PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE ARRIVES IN THE MIDDLE EAST
DHAHRAN, SAUDI ARABIA
Sources in Dhahran today revealed what
might have been the true reason for the seemingly illogical and
apparently suicidal attack by Iraqi troops on the deserted city of
Al-Khafji, located just 12 miles south of the Kuwaiti border.
The report indicates that the top
priority objective of the Iraqi strike across the border was a
successful attempt to destroy a small, portable FM radio station
that had been installed on the roof of the tallest building in the
town of Al-Khafji by the U.S. Defense Department’s PsyOps Branch.
With the destruction of Saddam Hussein’s military command and
control system, communications with Iraqi troops in Kuwait are now
largely carried out in a very primitive manner by utilizing Iraq’s
commercial FM radio stations located in the small Iraqi towns
adjacent to Kuwait’s western border. Military orders are encoded and
then transmitted by Baghdad’s military FM radio station YIHS.
These signals are received and
re-broadcast, in turn, by designated FM stations located between
Baghdad and the Kuwaiti border until the programming arrives at the
designated “control” station of the day which then broadcasts
directly to the troops in Kuwait on exactly 100.00 MHz (megahertz),
which is continuously monitored by all.
In order to nullify this Iraqi military line of communications
(LOC), the U.S. PsyOps organization attached to the U.S.
Central Command in Dhahran installed a portable FM broadcast
transmitter, a gasoline-electric generator and a continuous tape
recording system on top of the tallest building in the deserted city
of Al-Khafji. The station transmitted on 100.00 MHz and its power
output was adjusted to cover up the transmission of the Iraqi
station operating on exactly the same frequency.
The clandestine station programming consisted of patriotic and
religious music and intentionally vague, confusing and contradictory
military orders and information to the Iraqi soldiers in the
Kuwaiti Theater of Command (KTO).
The size and power of enemy forces was
always intentionally exaggerated.
Surrender was encouraged.

In places like Black Hole, the secret history of the war was played
out during the seven anxious months that began last August. The
final victory sprang out of the details—and only now, in the
afterglow of success, are the details beginning to emerge. President
Bush, his top military brass and his field commanders kept
the war planning so closely guarded that almost no one, even senior
military officers, knows the full scope of what they accomplished.
With much the same skill that they displayed in establishing air
superiority over the battlefield, they established a different sort
of supremacy over the media, hiding the risks they took, the
mistakes they made and the successful steps they took to overcome
In retrospect, the steady beat of coalition successes made the
victory over Saddam Hussein look almost easy.
The untold history of
the war, however, is a chronicle of tight spots and alarming
surprises, of stratagems devised to outwit a foe who was
consistently given more credit for more strength and more
determination than he ultimately displayed.
