The Antiterrorist Analyst

  • John B. Wolf
Part of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety book series (CJPS)


Maskiroka is a Russian word for a sequence of programs that are intended to disorient an unfriendly intelligence service. These confusion techniques, which consist of a full range of deception operations, have been used to beguile United States intelligence services and to facilitate the deployment of terrorists who are engaged to act as surrogates. These operatives are trained masqueraders, coached to utilize the approaches that are needed to gain the cooperation and confidence of the group they have been tasked to penetrate.
