An amazing analysis of the current #Ukraine️ #war
@kamilkazani takes us back to Cold War and evolution of Russian war machine based on those weapons/tactics.
Question: Will this op prove to be as much a watershed for #Russianarmy as it was for #UkrainianArmedForces in 2014?
In addition, the entire situation raises further questions
1-As mentioned in the tweet above, would this stimulate transformation of military affairs in the #RussianArmy in particular and #RussianArmedForces forces in general?
Especially considering the points @kamilkazani made?
2-Actually, and retrospectively, this raises more questions. And these questions are based on President #Putin own past career in particular and the post #SovietUnion combat experience of the #RussianArmedForces in general

Thread: #Qatar's Web of #Corruption & Intrigue Implicates #Morocco's FM Nasser Bourita

1. In previous threads, I explained how Kushner's group along with assorted #Moroccan cronies has undermined #AbrahamAccords due to #Qatar backing & infiltration.
2. But the story is much worse than meets the eye. Evidence has emerged connecting some affiliates of the Kushner group with the #Moroccan traitor Jamal Ben Omar, who was hired by #Qatar to recruit American conservative Jewish agents of influence.
3. Jamal Benomar eventually got busted not only for outright #espionage on behalf of #Qatar but for hiring former US intelligence officer to hack & disseminate private information of critics, including, specifically Elliott Broidy, who is now suing #Qatar.

Chinese Defector Mystery Deepens: Beijing’s sketchy report of Dong Jingwei’s appearance at a spy-catcher seminar adds suspicion that top counterintelligence official fled to U.S.—by @matthew_brazil & @SpyTalker for @talk_spy… #espionage #China #spies
Rumors that China's top spy catcher had defected to the US reached a fever pitch over the weekend, propelled largely by unfounded reports in anticommunist and pro-Trump circles that Dong had evidence that the Covid-19 pandemic originated in a Wuhan lab leak, not from an animal.
China’s officially sanctioned media reported June 18 that Dong had appeared at a MSS seminar where he “urged the country’s intelligence officers” to crack down on enemy spies. But there were no photos or videos of him, nor was the place and time of the seminar reported.

‘Tricks With a Notorious Russian Spy Group’

‘Security researchers have found links between the attackers and #Turla, a sophisticated team suspected of operating out of Moscow’s #FSB intelligence agency.’

“…believe the SolarWinds #hackers and #Turla aren't one and the same. But … one #hacker group at the very least ‘inspired’ the other, and they may have common members between them or a shared #software developer building their #malware.”…
“… That actually makes the connection more significant … ‘It’s more like handwriting. That handwriting or style propagates to different projects written by the same person.'"

ICYMI, @PwC_UK’s 2020 #threatintel Year in Retrospect report is out now! All team contributed but h/t to @KystleM_Reid! :fire: You can check it out here: In this thread, I will summarise some of what I thought were key findings: 🧵👇 1/n
#Ransomware has become the most significant cyber security threat faced by organisations, irrespective of industry/location. TTPs have pivoted to mass data exfiltration prior to encryption, along with leaks & extortion. S/o to @andyp346 for all your work countering this.🙏 2/n
In 2020, 86% of the incidents that PwC’s Incident Response team responded to were attributable to cyber criminals. 79% of leaks happened in 2nd half of 2020. Our data sees Manufacturing, TMT, & Professional Services most impacted. 3/n

I’m going to be on @MariaBartiromo tomorrow (Tuesday) morning at 8am ET (7am Texas time) to discuss the former People’s Liberation Army General that has quietly acquired over 200 sq miles of Texas land Val Verde Co. next to Laughlin Air Force base. #China #Espionage 1/6
The former General SUN Guangxin, who controls Xinjiang Guanghui, amassed the land by using a US frontman from Lufkin, TX. Their narrative is that the land is to develop a wind farm (appealing to all of the US alternative energy crowd) but this plan is much more sinister. 2/6
The proximity of 700-ft tall wind turbines will allow the Chinese Army to perform clandestine surveillance and collection of extremely sensitive information about our pilots, our base, their flight training, our planes, and even our electrical grid. 3/6

Part 3 - Debbins evolves to the type of HUMINT asset the #GRU had envisioned and like the proverbial goose, began laying golden eggs -

My analysis and timeline from 2011-2020 follows ...
#Debbins #Russia #Espionage…
As the @TheJusticeDept engages Debbins on the entirety of his 20+ years of being a GRU source, many more questions will come to mind concerning who and what was compromised or influenced by Debbins

We are at the beginning of knowing what's what
#Debbins #Russia #GRU #Espionage
⬆️⬆️⬆️Thank you ⬆️⬆️⬆️@File411 @LouiseMensch @911CORLEBRA777 @WylieNewmark @evenbev for pointing to a number of items which assisted in pulling together the timeline

Shout out to @JerwayneC within for the find concerning his abrupt departure

The #GRU (Russian Military #Intelligence) seals the deal & is now running #Debbins as an ideological penetration of the U.S. Army.

In this 2nd part, I break down multiple trips to Russia and how the GRU handles Debbins

#Espionage #Russia #NATSEC…
The #GRU unit handling Debbins is located in Samara, Russia - 3rd Guards Spetsnaz Brigade (Military Unit Number 21208) is located in Samara, Russia

#Espionage #Russia #NATSEC
The #GRU issues Debbins

*Operational telephone line in Russia which he uses with his GRU operational alias

*Operational letter drop in Samara, with code words to be used in an emergency

Debbins leaves the US Army and is fully operational.

He was 21 on his study-abroad in Chelyabinsk

The #GRU spotted/assessed him for recruitment

He was given rudimentary ops tests while they sized him up

They were counting on him not to report the contact

He didn't

FBI Honolulu found itself penetrated by China’s Ministry of State Security #MSS 2004-2010 - the penetration was a former CIA officer Alexander Yuk Chin Ma who was recruited in 2001 - my thoughts for @ClearanceJobs…
#insiderthreat #china #natsec #Espionage
From 2004-2010 he managed to steal FBI data digitally and in hard copy ... Would your organization's insider threat program detect this?
#insiderthreat #china #natsec #espionage #mss Image
While short on details in the FBI S/A's affidavit, the fact is that the #MSS lost control of the March 2001 video of Ma's debriefing and it managed to find its way into the hands of the FBI indicates a major coup for U.S. intelligence

#JeffreyEpstein #GhislaineMaxwell #LeslieWexner #PROMIS #truecrime #espionage

1/A PROMIS next-gen is what Jeffrey Epstein had on his computers which would have led straight 2 the CIA & Mossad.

That is why Epstein was tipped off & removed the computers from his Palm Beach house.
The modified software that Epstein & Maxwell kept on their computers was so that the government(s) could keep tabs on their blackmail program of politicians.

Epstein & Maxwell did not one day wake up & decide to take kids off the street & gift them to Presidents and Princes.
This was a highly sensitive covert mission for which Epstein & Maxwell were selected and trained.

It allowed both to work with impunity for decades. Neither believed they would ever be "caught".

The implications of their crimes being connected to government agencies

“The greatest long term threat to our nation’s information & intellectual property & to our economic vitality is the #counterintelligence & economic espionage threat from China.” —Christopher Wray, #FBI Dir on the significance of China’s threat to the US (& its allies) #IPTheft
“If you think this is just an intel issue, govt prob or nuisance just for big corps—you couldn’t be more wrong. It’s the [Americans] who’re the victims of what amounts to Chinese theft on a scale so massive—it reps one of the largest transfers of wealth in history.”—#FBI Dir Wray
