Pakistani propaganda handle "South Asia Index" again shares fake news about India.

Qatar security has detained 8 former Navy officials, working on contract at Doha, on espionage charges in Sept'22.

SAI has posted a thread today with all unverified and misleading claims.

1/ Image
SAI cited "Qatar Media" without naming one that navy officials "may be awarded capital punishment".

DFRAC has performed a fact check & found there is no such news or press release has been published on any account.

2/ Image
SAI said India didn't "acknowledge" it for "a year".

Both claims are wrong.

The detain happened on 30Aug'22, so can't be "one year".

And then Asianet news in Oct'22 & Dec'22, the Indian officials were in touch with Qatari counterpart & consular access was provided.

Skeptical thoughts on implementing #InformationWarfare #OIE doctrine, a 🧵

1/ Let's talk language capabilities. If one is serious about "influence," messaging has to be comparatively sophisticated for anything more than "get fresh water at Grid Square 1234."
2/ I've not been able to find systematic data on foreign language proficiency in the Joint Force. There've been some articles on language in SF, like this one:…
3/ There were HASC hearings in the late '00s when DOD was rethinking its foreign language approach.…

The twitter storm that brought diplomatic ruckus in Indian embassies at Gulf was organised by MB propaganda portal IOSPI.

India need to upgrade its cyber defence to deal with such soft teπorism.
@HMOIndia @MEAIndia @adgpi @GoI_MeitY @MIB_India @dir_ed👇
This entire episode shouldn't be taken as just another twitter trend. Someone sitting abroad, collaborating with local handlers artificially escalated matter upto a level that Indian govt had to face global embarassment. And this won't stop here.
With my limited knowledge here are few steps that can be taken to deal with such Information War.

1. As soon as such trend starts, inform twitter RGO to legally restrict visibility of those main handlers in India.

Now that 🇫🇮 is on the brink of sending an application to join #NATO, 🇷🇺 hybrid-warfare has picked up its pace. One crucial piece of that machine is the big network of "finnish" anti-vax/nato/whatever is required at the time websites and accounts, spewing nonsense to the public.
So how do we know about the 🇷🇺 involvement?
Simple, the do not hide their precence. Examples follow: koronarealistit dot net(com) is a professionally made website spewing covid nonsense, and traces back to 🇷🇺.
Another example: so called "Doctor clinic" Lääkärikeskus Aleksi 15, stationed in Helsinki that operates presumably under the company Clinic Estetic. They claim to offer medical services without covid restrictions of any kind. Website is hosted in #Russia. 1/2

I feel deeply humbled by the opportunity that I could participate and talk at this weekend's #FutureofDemocracy Forum, the official side event of the #SummitforDemocracy organized by the @LithuaniaMFA in Vilnius.
A rather long THREAD 1-10.
My main message was that a #DemocracyAgenda focusing mostly on the malicious external interference of #authoritarian great powers and #AuthoritarianEncroachment can be easily doomed to fail for a simple reason.
External #ForeignMeddling is only in a small-part responsible for #autocratization and #illiberal developments in the Western World. The main drivers of autocratization in #EU & #NATO countries are overwhelmingly domestic.

On June 2, #Russia has finally unveiled its new National #Security #Strategy - the strategic document that was expected some six months ago. The document is very interesting and has #information security at its heart. #InformationWarfare 1/8
One thing that may immediately surprise some experts, is the total absence of the word "#cyber", so revered in our Western countries. This further confirms the difference in approaches to the issue of #InformationWarfare and cyber. 2/8
In terms of terminology, the document does not use "#InformationWarfare, but "#InformationConfrontation" (информационное противоборство). Of course no nonsense like "#fakenews" can be found in it, although there are references to #propaganda and #PsyOps. 3/8

🚨🧐 New 🧵

1/ Stanley McChrystal is making headlines lately, so what better time to take a dive into his background. For those unaware, Stanley followed in his grandfather and father's footsteps serving in the Army. Herbert J McChrystal Sr. served during WWI (1895-1954)...
2/ Herbert J. McChrystal Jr. served during WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam. Interestingly, Jr. was born in the Panama Canal Zone just like NoName. Small world, huh? Wiki Source 👇…
3/ Stanley's Wiki info. "In February 1981, McChrystal moved to South Korea as intelligence and operations officer (S-2/S-3) for the United Nations Command Support Group—Joint Security Area." Source👇…

1) Defeat Disinfo uses artificial intelligence (AI) and network analysis that maps President Trump’s statements to friendly discussion groups and the individuals who discuss them on social media. #InformationWarfare #PoliticalWarfare #Insurgency #DigitalSoldiers #DigitalArmy
2) In Intelligence parlance, THIS IS A COLLECTION EFFORT—but this one is directed at American citizens and U.S. persons. President Trump is not al-Baghdadi and pro-Trump Americans are not ISIS cells. #InformationWarfare #PoliticalWarfare #Insurgency #DigitalSoldiers #DigitalArmy

2) We read that retired Special Operations General Stanley McChrystal will “deploy” information warfare technology in the domestic U.S. political arena:…

This is the visual representation of #Russia’s classification of modern armed conflicts. The #information conflicts are classified under the “domain” (place of happening) together with those happening in space and airspace, land, sea, and. #InformationWarfare
According to the principle of the use of forces they are: 1) classic, 2) asymmetric, 3) network-centric, and 4) hybrid. Even though #Russia approach to #InformationWarfare can engage it in all of them, but worth especially highlighting #networkcentric and #hybrid.
The armed conflicts in #Russia are also classified with the respect to “resources employed”. #InformationWarfare falls under “the use of #information and #psychological resources”.

🚨JFC Information warfare on Americans by Americans. NSA O'Brien's on the Sunday news shows sowing doubt on report #Russia's helping Trump—again. "If the intelligence exists, I hasn't seen it." Claims it's "commonsense" Russia would NOT want Trump—b/c he's so "tough on Russia."🤯
Gaslighting clown O'Brien not only sounds like an idiot, he sounds like the idiot in Helsinki: "I highly doubt it [intelligence]. Why would Russia want him re-elected? It makes no sense." AND calls #Russia's sweeping 2016 attack "a very small amount of election interference."🤡
Information warfare, courtesy of NSA. O'Brien denies intel Russia's helping Trump, but embellishes intel against Bernie. He said Russia wants Sanders as president—adding Trump rally line "honeymooned in Moscow"—but intel says Russia's disrupting Dem primaries. Putin wants Trump💯
