Wouldn't their press release indicate that they are actually keeping the
unit intact? After all, it IS the Office of Disinformation.

yourself vulnerable like that, much less not have a method of offensive
strike. It's like a country just now deciding to have an Air Force and
then out of the blue saying 'Nope, sorry, nevermind.'

A few years ago, the US Dept of Defense admitted that they had an Office
of Disinformation dedicated to feeding bogus info to our enemies. Of course,
there was a public outrage for some reason. The only official announcement
that the Office ever released was a press release that they were disbanding
due to the public outrage...
