March 28, 3019 S E C R E T SECTION 01 OF 03 ORTHANC 001380 SIPDIS STATE FOR NEA/IR, NEA/NGA, NEA/ARP, T E.O. 12958: DECL: 04/27/3025 TAGS: PREL, MARR, IZENG, MRDR, SUBJECT: (C) SITUATION REPORT ON ANTI-TERROR AND STABILIZATION OPERATIONS Classified By: CDA URUG RAVURBARG; REASON 1.4 (B, D). 1.(C) A meeting with high-level Orthanc officials took place on March 25 to discuss security and stabilization operations, assessing progress and reviewing priorities. Government of Isengard (GOI) officers assured that they are "long-term allies", and offered their input on security. 2.(C) Mouth of Sauron met with Saruman the White (StW)(PLEASE PROTECT) to discuss the security operations in the Middle Earth. Both parties agreed that the highest priority remains to deny terrorist to obtain JMD (Jewelry of Mass Destruction), but that diplomatic isolation is of almost equal importance. Terrorist must be prevented from obtaining support from state actors, be they rogue states, dwarwish states or elvish states. 3.(S) Cooperation in the joint program on Palantir interception has proved very good, but SIGINT has proved disappointing so far, in good part because we happen to control all palantirs in existence ourselves. Consequently, emergency programs to develop HUMINT and HOBBINT are in under way. 4.(C) The security situation has recently deteriorated in Rohan. The highest-profile incident was the ambush of a Coalition patrol by anti-Rohan forces on February 29 near Parth Galen. Report two detainees in transfer to MNSMRDL for tactical interrogation were taken from custody by the insurgency. Troops report illegal enemy combatants attempting rescue operations of illegal enemy orphans and illegal enemy widows. StW says in spite of these temporary setbacks, Mordor forces enjoy an overwhelming superiority in logistics and in air power (Nazgul) and will inevitably prevail. 5.(C) Press coverage in Rohan has been distinctly unfavorable. Figures of the opposition use criticism aimed at Grima to sustain a campaign of virulent anti-mordorism. Editorials in the mainstream press have claimed that the legitimacy of the government is tainted by corruption, one-candidate election, and the head of State begin under magical control of a foreign power. StW (PLEASE PROTECT) agreed to further efforts to promote Sauron public diplomacy in the Middle Earth, particularly by underlining the Hobbit threat to the Orcish way of life; and by pursuing the systematic evisceration of civilians and magical control of government officials, which GOI call "winning hearts and minds". 6.(S) While GOI officials are committed to the War on Terror, StW has cautioned against potential negative effect of our HOBBINT program. They mentioned extra-judiciary detention and Enhanced Interrogation Techniques as focus points that may fuel anti-Mordorism. The Mouth of Sauron statement that detainee Golum was not tortured "at any stretch" incensed the left-of-center media. Comment: by current Mordor Government standards, left-of-center encompasses the following individuals: the entire population of Middle Earth. End comment. Particularly stringent criticism has been expressed by partisan organizations such as Elvish Liberty Guard, Hobbit Freedom Sentinel and Human Rights Watch. GOI have attempted to tactfully raise the issue on the matter, but their point was dismissed by MRDR DefSec as stemming from "Old Isengard". 7.(S) StW reports that insurgency ringleader Gandalf the Grey (GtG) had attempted to make contacts with GOI officials for diplomatic openings. Comment: RINGleader! Ah ah ah! Got it? End comment. GtG was rebuffed by GOI officials, who cited the "special relationship" that Isengard enjoy with Mordor. Gandalf was subsequently put under administrative detention in Orthanc pending extradition to Mordor, but managed a spectacular escape by air, despite being on the No-Fly list. 8.(S) Comment: The current program for the detention of illegal enemy combattants is drawing to its limits, as it is beginning to unsettle even close allies. We could consider switching to a scheme of targeted killing to take the most proemient ringleaders (that one never gets old) off the map. For instance, an early demise of GtG would cause catastrophic breakdown of leadership, organization and morale for terrorist cells, as well as to anti-Gondor and anti-Rohan forces, whose leadership has proven especially vulnerable. At present time, nobody seems likely to emerge as a successor for GtG, making a targeted killing in this instance a long-term solution. End Comment.
