'National Committee for Domestic Tranquility

Under the rather amusingly titled cover of the 'National Committee for Domestic Tranquility' (NCDT), the FBI presents itself as seeking to calm things down. They do this by mailing copies of cartoons from Civil Rights groups publications to known clan leaders/members while simultaneously alerting the Civil Rights groups to the presense of Klan members in their midst. Provocation or what??? "Domestic Tranquility" . . . yeah, right... http://www.icdc.com/~paulwolf/cointelpro/whitehate.htm

"Intelligence Cover Organization

You are in receipt of a prior communication regarding the establishment of the National Committee for Domestic Tranquility (NCDT), a Bureau-approved vehicle for attacking Klan policies, and disputes from a low-key, common sense, and patriotic position. You should regard this development as a highly confidential counterintelligence technique. Information concerning the NCDT should not be set forth in the details of any communication prepared for dissemination. In the event inquiries are made concerning the NCDT by interested intelligence agencies, you are not to divulge any information conerning the NCDT. Such inquiries should be promptly furnished the Bureau. Director to 20 Field Offices, May 12, 1966"

In another concocted missive they sought to disillusion the Trotskyists, making veiled references to the assassination. This was at a time when the FPCC was already in the public consciousness as being to do with 'the lone nut'. They kind of nicely slip up when they drop the derogatory 'Trotskyite' for the proper term , Trotskyist, right at the end of the letter. Probably was keen to finish. (It seems to me that a number of pieces of evidence loose the plot somewhere halfway towards the end when the main purpose has been covered. The attention to detail is lessened in the wish to finish. (Probably should refer to the manuals more often.))

Another good exercise for Image Analyzer can be demonstrated when viewing paper documents. In this instance a document produced by the FBI in its COINTELPRO operations.

Faint smudges on the copy can be enhanced and they reveal something on the reverses side. Placing this as a grayscale depth map with scaling set at about 0.01 allows one to rotate the document and view it from different angles.

In this case the reverse is a copy of the bogus disruptive flyer referred to in the text.

In this way one can also discern text in blacked out areas of redacted documents. I have yet to be able to discern more than a few unconnected letters, however sooner or later one will come across one where the black out is insufficient.

It helps to play around with the various enhancement features and to use the various ambient light and surface reflection features.
