Did you know #propaganda can take many different forms? British Intelligence was known for using #occultists like Louis De Wohl for #BlackPropaganda

theawl.com/2012/04/the-in…
According to author Annie Jacobsen, De Wohl's mission in #America was to remove the #occult stigma from #stargazing and to elevate it into the realm of "astro-philosophy" with the goal of changing public #opinion.
In 1941, as war was raging across Europe, De Wohl had a syndicated column in #America called "Stars Foretell" that always emphasized the #Nazi Threat.

The @FBI published a wanted poster and an indictment of 4 “Chinese military-backed hackers” for their alleged roles in the 2017 #Cyberattack against credit company @Equifax.

Article by @JoshJPhilipp | (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/hackers-indict…
The @FBI described the breach as “the largest known theft of personally identifiable information ever carried out by state-sponsored actors.”

Yet, despite the rare exposé of Chinese soldiers, little has been said about the #Hacker unit they were allegedly part of.
The case that most closely resembles this is the May 19, 2014, indictment of 5 Chinese #Military hackers for multiple alleged #Cybercrime acts committed between 2006 and 2014.

They were identified as being part of the #Chinese military, the People’s Liberation Army.

Et si on recherchait l'#apaisement?
Depuis quelques jours, on voit une multitude d'images de #violences et d'insultes qui ne sont pas plaisantes dans notre société!
Je ne ferai pas un énième laïus sur le pourquoi du comment ou du qui à fait quoi...⬇️
Je ne fais pas de #politique mais je suis juste un #citoyen qui sert son pays avec fierté. J'ai conscience que le paysage social actuel n'est pas très beau car on ne s'écoute plus et on ne se comprend plus. Il y a de la #responsabilité de part et d'autre et il faut le dire⬇️
En ce qui concerne ma #corporation, il est clair que toutes ces semaines de contestations étaient très difficiles. Oui des erreurs ont été commises, je n'en disconviens pas...
Encore une fois, même un #policier qui est un humain sous son uniforme doit être exemplaire,⬇️

I have my students (and analysts) make sure they can answer 5 questions as they begin thinking about their #intelligence product/brief:
1) when is it due (that’ll allow you to backwards plan & know how much time you’ll have for collection, analysis, editing, rehearsals
2) Who is the primary customer? Audience analysis is easy to overlook. How do they absorb information? What are their interests & things that will shut them down?

Also: how might secondary customers (mis)use this information/product?
3) what is the purpose of the product? What Key Intelligence Question is being answered?

#Rassistic #Antisemitic incident!!

The #Bundeswehr is again confronted with at least two #rightwing #extremists. The "@BILDamSONNTAG" reports that the Military Shielding Service (#MAD) is investigating several members of the elite unit "Kommando Spezialkräfte" (KSK).
Among other things, a #sergeant in the segant carrer is strongly suspected of being a #rightwing #extremist. The #intelligence #investigation against him should last for several months. The Ministry of Defense (@BMVg_Bundeswehr)has confirmed the process.
The necessary legal action against the #soldier had been opened public because #information had come to the public, says a ministry spokesman in the #newspapper

This is outrageous ‼ The #UK is #blocking a Spanish Judge from getting testimony from #Assange - re: the US SPYING on him while at Embassy- to #protect the #US #extradition case from being #thrown out of Court

ILLEGAL
UNCONSCIONABLE
DISGRACEFUL @cpsuk

1/ "The British justice system is blocking a Spanish judge’s request to question Julian Assange in London as a witness in a case exploring allegations that the Spanish security firm Undercover Global S.L. spied on the WikiLeaks founder while he was living in d Ecuadorian embassy"
2/ "The British position, unprecedented in these types of requests for judicial collaboration, is being viewed by Spanish judicial bodies as a show of resistance against the consequences that the case could have on the process to extradite the Australian cyberactivist to the US."

"Information theory, predictability, and the emergence of complex life"

SFI Seminar by Luis F Seoane of @IFISC_mallorca, streaming now:
"The size of the #environment in some ways captures the #complexity...longer words take longer and longer to sample. This means in smaller environments, smaller words mean more."

- Luís Seoane of @IFISC_mallorca on #information right now:

"More-complex bit guessers are going to survive in a wider variety of environments. But a more-complex guesser is going to pay a higher metabolic cost."

1. sono molto scettica di quello che scrivono oggi i giornali sulla #chat #Wickr usata da #Savoini. Gli articoli che rappresentano la #chat in modo dubbio perché fornisce #messaggicifrati con cifratura military-grade. Embè? Chiunque dovrebbe usare cifratura military-grade
2. i giornalisti in particolare hanno il dovere etico di usare #cifratura #weapon-grade per proteggere le fonti. Molti di noi la usiamo da anni: c'è qualcosa di sinistro? NO
3. #Wickr è la #chat usata dei #DemocraticiUSA dopo l'hackeraggio delle email della #Clinton: NON è affatto un prodotto sinistro, usato da gente equivoca a letto con i russi. E se #Savoini si fosse scambiato messaggi compromettenti su #Wickr, temo che non finirà bene

1/ I want to draw your attention to a great #cannabis #business #intelligence report just released from @FreshleafA which is free to download. Disclosure: they’re a past client of mine, but I wouldn’t promote this report if it wasn’t awesome freshleafanalytics.com.au
2/ The best part of this analysis is it’s based on proprietary data taken from the largest chain of cannabis clinics in #Australia. So, although the patient access data I publish is more comprehensive, theirs is more precise. Here are the highlights:
3/ Counting active patients in Australia is diff-i-cult. Freshleaf’s definition is anyone seeing a clinic #doctor, receiving a script or receiving a new or replacement approval. My preferred definition is anyone in possession of an active recommendation but here's their graph

"If you talk about #intelligence and #stupidity, you talk about #communication and #policy. That is the natural place to start."

In April, the CIA declassified this image of the first-ever map drawn by a computer. cdn.muckrock.com/foia_files/201… (h/t @simongerman600 & @NatSecGeek)

It was generated in January 1967 and the preceding years are chock-full of gems on #innovation, #dataviz & #intelligence. Thread.
2. The 1960s bred the perfect storm for tech-enabled transformation at the CIA. A holy trinity for #defenceinnovation? Technology + necessity + political will seems like a pretty good recipe. But organisational barriers make it less straightforward.
3. CIA maps were hardly used during the Korean War, gave a “psychological boost” to the state of intel during Cuban Missile Crisis, & were relied upon in Vietnam. Automated mapping from the late 1960s helped improve accuracy & reduce clutter, building on other tech breakthroughs,

Lack of Humanity?
You ass wipe @JohnBrennan are responsible for the deaths of over 100,000 in #Syria alone, God knows how many across the #MiddleEast 5-600K more.
Did ya forget about the #WikiLeaks dump proving it?
Is that why you want #Assange.
You're an International #Terrorist
#Brennan was a key player in the implementation of the worst #WarCrime of modern times, #Obama's PSD-11 Agenda.
#Flynn tried to expose PSD-11 which would have hung the #Intelligence community & the Obama Administration.
They went after Flynn with a vengeance to silence him.
