N2 - Coming out of a typology of Organised Persuasive Communication (under development with Eric Herring, David Miller and Piers Robinson) I present misdirection as an important, and frequently used, aspect of contemporary deceptive propaganda. I offer a definition of misdirection, and explain how it is different from other common forms of deceptive propaganda techniques. I explain the importance of misdirection, and illustrate its usage with examples taken from the Bush administration’s torture-intelligence policy (2001-2008). The example extends to the UK’s complicity in this torture policy.
