Let's look at Leakers
Chelsea Manning
Edward Snowden
Reality Winner
Jeffrey A. Sterling, ex-CIA
John Kiriakou, ex-CIA
Donald Sachtleben, ex-FBI explosives expert
Stephen Kim, ex-State Department contractor
Thomas A. Drake, ex-NSA
Shamai Leibowitz, ex-FBI linguist
all but Winner were prosecuted during @BarackObama's time in office.
Manning, Snowden, Winner all pretty well-known so I'm going to focus on the others for now.
Jeffrey Sterling
John Kiriakou. Who now works for Sputnik 🙄
Donald Sachtleben was initially arrested on child pornography charges....
(Lou's brain wants to know: was that child porn habit used as #Kompromat by our enemies??? to blackmail him into leaking??)
Stephen Kim leaked classified intel on North Korea to Fox News' James Rosen.
There are a lot of things that are fascinating about leakers, but to me the spin cycle of hot takes is quite interesting. Especially in light of @thespybrief's recent comments on "Soft Kremlin creeps."
I'm NOT an expert in propaganda/Russian media influence operations, so keep that in mind. For expertise, please see @MollyMcKew & @20committee & @counterchekist.
But I am pretty good at literary analysis, detecting media bias and recognizing patterns.
So here is my nosy housewife/ex financial analyst lukewarm take:
Some spin cycle pieces are useful idiocy.
Some are conclusions inferred from incomplete evidence.
Some hot takes, I fear, are worse-some are likely straight up Russian Active Measures.
More to come on this. #Soon
Now, to be clear, I do not love The New Republic. They've pushed a lot of crap imo. But this article on Kiriakou is interesting to me. newrepublic.com/article/148342…
And this is why I find it fascinating:
Kiriakou was instructed to "stay away from 9/11 truthers"
Sometimes, it's what's censored that is the most interesting.
Kiriakou's fellow Russian Agent of Influence Alex Jones IS A 9/11 "TRUTHER."
Isn't that interesting?
LOL. November 2017: ‘Zero evidence’ that Russia hacked DNC, says NSA whistleblower Binney (to RU STATE OWNED PROPAGANDA CHANNEL) (VIDEO). He’s also all up in the Nunes memo.
