PAROLE - a password used to confirm identity between agents

PATTERN - repeat actions / behaviour of a spy that may lead to his detection

PETER THE GREAT's WILL - a forgery concocted to stoke fear and hatred of / toward the Russians

PITCHFORK - pitchforks are the traditional regime (your regime) change tools, handy to keep around, should never go rusty from disuse

PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY - term given to the creation of loose and informal chain of command in government. In the case that assassinations, false flag or black ops or any other illegal or otherwise disrespectable and unpopular activities become public, high-ranking officials may deny any connection to or awareness of such act, or the agents used to carry out such act.

In politics and espionage, deniability refers to the ability of a "powerful player" or actor to avoid "blowback" by secretly arranging for an action to be taken on their behalf by a third party - ostensibly unconnected with the major player.

More generally, "plausible deniability" can also apply to any act which leaves little or no evidence of wrongdoing or abuse. Examples of this are the use of electricity or pain-compliance holds as a means of torture or punishment, leaving little or no tangible signs

POCKET LITTER - Pocket litter is a term for material, including notes scribbled on scraps of paper, that accumulates in an individual's pockets. It can include identity cards, transportation tickets, personal photographs, computer files, mobile phones, and similar material. Counter-terrorism analysts report that the analysis of pocket litter can be an important tool for confirming or refuting suspects' accounts of themselves.

POLYGRAPH - A polygraph (commonly and inaccurately referred to as a "lie detector") is a device which measures and records several physiological variables such as blood pressure, heart rate, respiration and skin conductivity while a series of questions are being asked, in an attempt to detect lies. The above measurements are posited to be indicators of anxiety that accompanies the telling of lies. Thus, measured anxiety is equated with telling untruths. However, if the subject exhibits anxiety for other reasons, a measured response can result in unreliable conclusions. A polygraph test is also known as a psychophysiological detection of deception (PDD) examination. The original polygraph was invented by John A. Larson. Today, polygraph examiners use two types of instrumentation, analog and computerized. In the United States, most examiners now use computerized instrumentation.

PROPAGANDA - The more propaganda one is exposed to, the more one craves it and cannot function without...

PROTECTED SOURCE - secret informant

PSYOPS - Psychological operations - influencing behavior of the masses, ie: through mainstream media such as radio, press and TV. Sometimes called brainwashing; see: Canadian armed forces using PSYOPS against its own population

R2I - resistance to interrogation is a name for a set of techniques taught to UK, USA and other NATO soldiers ostensibly to help them, after capture by the enemy, to resist interrogation techniques such as humiliation and torture. The trainees undergo practices such as hooding, sleep deprivation, time disorientation, prolonged nakedness, sexual humiliation and deprivation of warmth, water and food. One major objective for the prisoner is to buy time, since information he possess is most likely to be of only tactical value.

RADIO FREE EUROPE | RFE - US State media propaganda tool

RCMP - The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP or more commonly known as Mounties; French: Gendarmerie royale du Canada, GRC) is both the federal police force and the national police of Canada. The RCMP acts as the federal (national) police for all of Canada, enforcing certain federal laws. It also has contracts with Canada's three territories and eight of its provinces to serve as their provincial/territorial police force. Most of Canada's provinces, while constitutionally responsible for law and order, prefer to sub-contract policing to the RCMP. They consequently operate under the direction of the provinces in regard to provincial and municipal law enforcement. The exceptions are Ontario, Quebec, and parts of Newfoundland and Labrador, which have retained their own provincial police forces. Additionally, many towns and cities throughout Canada also contract the RCMP to serve as their municipal police force. The RCMP is the largest police force in Canada

RING - a network of spies

SECRET Service, The - The Secret Service has primary jurisdiction over the prevention of counterfeiting of U.S. currency and U.S. treasury bonds and notes, and protection of the President, Vice President, their immediate families, other high ranking government officials, past presidents and their spouses, certain candidates for the offices of President and Vice President, and visiting foreign heads of state and government (all called "protectees"). It also investigates a wide variety of financial fraud crimes and identity theft and provides forensics assistance for some local crimes. The name is believed to have come from the fact that they are not allowed to reveal who they are when asked.

SECURE COMMUNICATIONS - Secure communication describes means by which people can share information with varying degrees of certainty that third parties cannot know what was transmitted. Other than communication spoken face to face out of possibility of listening, it is probably safe to say that no communication is guaranteed secure in this sense, although practical limitations such as legislation, resources and the sheer volume of communication are limiting factors to surveillance.

SELECTIVE ASSASSINATION - Selective Assassination is a policy of selecting targets, using arms, training personnel and cover-up strategies designed to justify assassination as the means to meet a political agenda.

Assassination has long been a weapon in asymmetric warfare and has been favoured by many terrorist organisations, but the term selective assassination is generally used to describe government-sanctioned killings.

Several totalitarian regimes have indulged in selective assassination, though state-run murder squads would be illegal in most democracies. Even so there are suspicions that some governments have sanctioned it at times (e.g." The US assassinating its citizens who join foreign military services).

The US is actively engaged in selective assassination (with "collateral damage" - civilian casualties) through its drone program.

SEMTEX - The go-to Czech-made plastic explosive. First made by the Semtin Glassworks (then called VCHZ Synthesia, now called Explosia) in the former Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic), it is used in commercial blasting, demolition and in certain military applications; its notoriety is due to its popularity with terrorists because it was, until recently, extremely difficult to detect and easily obtained. As little as 250g can down an airliner as in the case of Pan Am Flight 103).

SERE - Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape is a U.S. military training program developed at the end of the Korean War to provide service members with training in the Code of Conduct, survival skills, evading capture, and dealing with being taken prisoner. It was created by the Air Force but was expanded to the Army and the Navy after the Vietnam War. The school is intended to train aircrews, special forces, and other service members who operate in dangerous areas and are thus more likely to be captured.

SHABAK - SHIN BET - Israel's internal security The Shabak (in Hebrew, שב"כ "Shabak" (help·info)) an acronym of "Shérūt Bītāhōn Klālī" שירות ביטחון כללי) known in English as the Shin Bet (which was how the Shabak was known in Israel in its early days) or the GSS (General Security Service), is the Internal General Security Service of Israel. Its motto is "מגן ולא יראה," which translates into: "Defender (Shield) who shall not be seen". The service consists of close to 5,000 employees. It is one of three principal organizations of the Israeli Intelligence Community, alongside Aman (the military intelligence of the IDF) and Mossad (responsible for overseas intelligence work).

SHOE - false passport

SIGINT - signals intelligence - intercepted signals (ie: communication, etc.). SIGINT is actually a broad discipline under which multiple sub-disciplines fall. There are three major sub-disciplines that fall under SIGINT which are COMmunications INTelligence (COMINT), ELectronic INTelligence (ELINT), and Foreign Instrumentation Signals INTelligence (FISINT). It should be noted that COMINT is commonly referred to as SIGINT, which can cause confusion when talking about the broader intelligence disciplines.
