Examples of leaflet floats One of the earliest recorded incidents involving the use of Propaganda floats comes from Vietnam. Generals Le Loi and Nguyen Trai while fighting the Chinese from 1417 to 1427, used grease or honey to write patriotic phrases on the large leaves of the forest trees. Ants ate the organic product absorbed in the leaf tissue and the words were exposed. Some of the leaves fell upon the waters of streams and were carried to adjoining areas. People noticed the perforated leaves and interpreted them as a divine message. They joined the Vietnamese forces and defeated the Chinese. The American waterborne dissemination technique in the Vietnam war was comparatively simple and inexpensive. Propaganda material is placed in buoyant, waterproof containers and dropped from low-flying aircraft, ships, or boats at predetermined locations. Prevailing winds, tides and currents carry the floating containers to the target area along ocean beaches or riverbanks. The containers can be wood, bamboo, plastic, glass or similar materials. According to The Propaganda Float in Leaflet Operations, printed by the 7th PSYOP Group on Okinawa There are four standard types of floats:
1. A relatively heavy, dense package riding low in the water. This package is influenced primarily by water currents. 2. A relatively lightweight package with about half of the volume exposed to surface winds. This package is influenced by both current and surface winds. 3. A lightweight package with most of the volume exposed to surface winds. This package is influenced primarily by surface winds. 4. An anchored float in which there is no movement. This float is positioned for discovery by members of the intended target group. Gulf War Marine Wave Leaflet Waterborne dissemination of propaganda was discussed as early as the American Revolutionary War when Benjamin Franklin wrote to Colonel Thomas McKean and enclosed a number of Congressional resolutions translated into German. Franklin recommended that they be conveyed over the water to the Hessian encampment opposite the New Jersey shore. Since some of the literature was printed on tobacco paper, Franklin recommended that a little tobacco be added to the floats. He was far ahead of his time. In WWII the Allies airdropped cigarettes, matches, seeds, soap, coffee, and even tea bags to keep up the morale of the citizens of the occupied nations. A sampling of OSS metal floats .

Updike, John, “The Disposable Rocket
Partly because of my work on the , the , and other controversies, I had some access to the 9/11 independent researcher community. In 2004, I made the suggestion that the 9/11 researchers should concentrate on the most provable findings and stay away from the more speculative theories, if they want to make a persuasive case to the public. My suggestion sparked a flame war amongst the researchers, which confirmed the observation I made about the . In late 2005, a physics professor from BYU, a conservative bastion if there ever was one, published an academic paper that supported the hypothesis that World Trade Center building number 7 was , which led to the hypothesis that the main World Trade Center ("WTC") towers were also collapsed in a controlled demolition. The faculties of two Utah universities unanimously accepted his findings. In the wake of publishing his study, he made the same suggestion that I did: researchers should focus their efforts on the most provable aspects of the 9/11 controversy and stop fighting with each other.
The Disposable Rocket by John Updike ..
Reagan was elected with the help of the Iranian hostage albatross that Carter wore around his neck, and a month later John Lennon was gunned down by another "lone nut." Then Reagan was inaugurated, and the Iranians released the hostages on the same day, followed a few weeks later by the fabricated white paper that helped set the stage for a ten-year reign of terror in Central America. John Lennon was eminently qualified to lead the American people in protesting the crucifixion of Central America. Just when Reagan was able to find the White House bathroom on his own, he was gunned down by another "lone nut." That man was "coincidentally" a friend of George Bush's family.
