COMMUNICATION-
OBFUSCATION/ CONFUSION
Make Sure You’re Understood

A Colonel issued the following directive to his Executive Officer: “Tomorrow evening at approximately 2000 hours, Haley’s Comet will be visible in the area, an event which occurs only once every 75 years. Have the men fall out in the battalion area in fatigues, and I will explain this rare phenomenon to them. In the case of rain , we will not be able to see anything, so assemble the men in the theater and I will show films of it.”

Executive Officer to Company Commander: “By order of the colonel, tomorrow at 2000 hours, Haley’s Comet will appear above the battalion area. If it rains, fall the men out in fatigues, then something which occurs only once every 75 years.”

Company Commander to Lieutenant: “By order of the colonel in fatigues at 2000 hours tomorrow evening, the phenomenal Haley’s Comet will appear in the theater. In case of rain in the battalion area, the colonel will give another order, something which occurs once every 75 years.”

Lieutenant to Sergeant: “Tomorrow at 2000 hours, the colonel will appear in the theater with Haley’s Comet, something which happens every 75 years. If it rains, the colonel will order the Comet into the battalion area.”

Sergeant to Squad: “When it rains tomorrow at 2000 hours, the phenomenal 75-year-old General Haley, accompanied by the colonel, will drive his Comet through the battalion area theater in fatigues.”
