  U.S. Dept. of State FOIA - Church Report (Covert Action in Chile 1963-1973)
Covert United States involvement in Chile in the decade between 1963 and 1973 was extensive and continuous.
United States covert efforts to affect the course of Chilean politics reached a peak in 1970: the CIA was directed to undertake an effort to promote a military coup in Chile to prevent the accession to power of Salvador Allende.
Covert action efforts were conducted during this period to influence the political development of various sectors of Chilean society.

 Covert Action: the Delicate Balance
Covert action in the new era will largely be of a different nature than the covert action of the Cold War and should not be subject to the same public prejudices held against its use.
Because covert action usually requires both the decisions of elected officials and the consequences of those decisions, to be kept from the people, there seems to be a contradiction between the democratic system and the requirements of covert action.
Although covert action will still be used in the traditional manner in the post-Cold War era, such as attempts to unseat Saddam Hussein after the conclusion of Desert Storm, the prioritization of transnational threats requires an examination of the appropriate role for covert action in the new framework.

 1988 AC Statement, Covert Operations and Covert War
Covert operations are actions taken against an enemy, or perceived enemy, or intervention in a situation, planned and executed in secret for which the government intends to deny responsibility.
Covert activities are a waging of war, without declaring war, and are done without the consideration or the consent of the Congress.
Covert war is the breeding ground of falsehood, beginning with others in government who must be misled, because they are considered unsafe, spreading to enemies, to allies, and finally to citizens on whose behalf the war theoretically is waged.

 Covert operation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Covert operations are military or political activities that are not only clandestine (undertaken in a manner that disguises the identity of the perpetrators) but also covert, i.e.
Covert operations differ from espionage by attempting to influence events in another country rather than gathering information about it.
The best-known organizations specializing in covert operations today are the Central Intelligence Agency and the Department of Defense (The Pentagon) of the United States, but covert operations have been employed by many national and sub-national governments and other organizations for centuries, with or without a formal intelligence agency.

 Equipo Nizkor - Covert Action in Chile 1963-1973
The covert action budget for Chile was cut back sharply after the coup and all the anti-Allende projects except for one, a major propaganda project, were terminated.
Covert activities in Chile following the coup were either continuations or adaptations of earlier projects, rather than major new initiatives.
The goal of covert action immediately following the coup was to assist the Junta in gaining a more positive image, both at home and abroad, and to maintain access to the command levels of the Chilean government.

Covert operations have become the instrument of choice for policymakers who assume that a cold war status quo is inevitable.
"The Covert Action Group (CAG) was formed in 1989 to cover Special Operations Command (SOCOM) operations that could not and/or would not ever be reported to or tied with any oversight and would include domestic counterintelligence and counterterrorist, operations technically outside official Central Intelligence Agency jurisdiction or the oversight auspices.

 A Loophole for Covert Operations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Thus, where "clandestine" refers to the secrecy of the operation itself, "covert" refers to the secrecy of its sponsor; the action itself may or may not be secret.
Just because the military may be better suited than the CIA to conduct today's covert paramilitary operations does not mean that military leaders are somehow immune from the pressures and poor judgment that led to previous mistakes.
Moreover, with the enemy as decentralized as it is, the potential for covert operations has spread to many more countries, meaning that the risk of collateral damage, diplomatic disputes and retaliation is much greater than it ever was in the past.

 BuzzFlash > News Alert > Lawmakers Call on President to Stop Covert Propaganda
Covert propaganda to influence public opinion is unethical and dangerous.
We are concerned that these three incidents, while serious and disturbing on their own, may not be isolated incidents but rather a deliberate pattern of behavior by your Administration to deceive the public and the media in an effort to further your policy objectives.
And in furtherance of official congressional oversight, we request that you direct all department and agency heads to immediately provide to us all past and ongoing efforts to engage in covert propaganda, whether through contracts with commentators, the distribution of video news releases, or other means.

 Note on U.S. Covert Actions
The Department of State, believing this role too important to be left to the CIA alone and concerned that the military might create a new rival covert action office in the Pentagon, pressed to reopen the issue of where responsibility for covert action activities should reside.
Representatives of the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, and the President were to be advised in advance of major covert action programs initiated by the CIA under this policy and were to give policy approval for such programs and secure coordination of support among the Departments of State and Defense and the CIA.
NSC 5412/2 of December 28, 1955, assigned to representatives (of the rank of assistant secretary) of the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, and the President responsibility for coordinating covert actions.

 Establishing Big Brother using covert channels and other covert techniques
Detecting the absence of covert hardware and covert software is actually undecidable and cryptography alone seems inadequate to protect against the abuse of covert technology, extending the work of Anderson regarding the limitations of cryptography.
Covert hardware is not only important in the context of computation, but also in the context of covert sensors.
Covert hardware could be used to reach this goal to a certain extent.

 [No title]
The usual definition of a covert channel as it is exposed in 1.1 states that "a covert channel is a communication channel that allows a process to transfer information in a manner that violates the system's security policy".
Maybe that network covert channels didn't exist between 1973 and 1978 and perhaps should we thank NSCS to have extended DOD TCS criteria related to CC to the network in 1987 because no one was able to discuss the covert channel network concepts from the 1985 definitions.
Covert channels may be based on merely all existing protocols from OSI low layers ones as IP, TCP, UDP, ICMP to OSI high layers ones as HTTP, SMTP, etc. However, we only can use protocols authorized by the NACS and we first have to decide about the trade-off we will accept regarding reliability and stealthiness.

 Obsidian Wings: No Surprises Here
But special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald found that Plame had indeed done "covert work overseas" on counterproliferation matters in the past five years, and the CIA "was making specific efforts to conceal" her identity, according to newly released portions of a judge's opinion.
Whether Plame was covert is irrelevant to whether Libby lied to the FBI and investigators - though one has to wonder, if she wasn't covert, whyinhell Libby lied in the first place.
On the specific point about her covert status, I assume he would not lie, but he might not have pressed real hard to see if the CIA was, uhh, exaggerating a bit.

Using a network of strategically positioned satellites equipped with unspecified top secret technology, the intelligence agency allegedly aims to decrease the size of the sun between 5% and 15% in order to reverse the effects of global warming, which is believed to be caused by the emission of greenhouse gases.
Reportedly stung by international criticism that it hasn't done enough to combat global warming, which threatens severe climate change and potentially catastrophic damage to ecosystems, the Bush administration last month allegedly authorized the CIA to develop a comprehensive covert operations program to address the issue.
