Weaken somebody through meeting sabotage - reality, not fiction.

Waste of resources in endless and unproductive meetings, who doesn't know that.

I was therefore very amused to think that this could be intentional - the deliberate sabotage of one country's organizations by another intelligence agency.

In 1944, the CIA's predecessor, the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) left instructions in a manual for simple sabotage for just that: talk as long as possible, insist on postponing decisions or forming a task force, bring in irrelevant topics.... and some more.

Don't think so? Then click here. Also, to keep the spies out, here are a few tricks for productive meetings.
