Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) research paper: Deception Maxims: Fact and Folklore (July 2015)

posted in: Research Article | 0

The deception maxims discussed in this report represent the synthesis of a number of historical case studies by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency CIA. These case studies are part of an ORD exploratory research program on deception. It is anticipated that these maxims and other results from this research will aid intelligence analysts in thinking about the problem of deception and in detecting, analyzing and evaluating foreign deception schemes relevant to current intelligence problems.

The report was written in 1980 and only declassified and made publicly available following a freedom of information act (FOIA) request filed in July 2015.
