I love OSINT training sites. That's a fancy name for "stuff that's available for free or to the public" As finding the correct information and sourcing becomes more critical, we all should love OSINT training sites. osinteditor.com/general/in-dep…
You can also take online courses from Bellingcat who manage to prove a lot of things using forensics, despite no one in the criminal countries giving a shit. bellingcat.com/resources/even…
You could make an argument that news coverage should embrace the forensic format. Opinions are like....op eds. We need facts. forensic-architecture.org
The New York Times publishes an intermittent series of forensic visual pieces that use this format. nytimes.com/spotlight/visu…
The UN issues 500+ page reports that seek to document criminality. Part of this includes charts and diagrams. The press competes with each other to digest these into snappy articles and beat competitors to press without much content. Speed is important. news.un.org/en/story/2021/…
Sometimes a short blurry film has more impact than a 500 page report. Mahmoud al-Werfalli filmed his crime of murdering prisoners, post it on the internet and then get conveniently murdered before being brought to justice. No media outrage required. icc-cpi.int/libya/al-werfa…
The media and the general public couldn't care less who killed Werfalli. Which in a way is an example of the moral posturing and marketing stance of the media. The media likes media friendly stories but can't be relied on for completing investigations.
Why is it important? Eastern Libya has been the location of hundreds of targeted assassinations and disappearances. hrw.org/news/2013/08/0…
The story of targeted assassination in Libya only reappears when it has a sexy "tech" edge. npr.org/2021/06/01/100…
The reality is that Libya is the playground of killers and mercenaries. Proof of concept ideas backed by sweaty tribal dictators that is already in rolled out in Europe and coming to this country. Worth properly investigating.

“The politicization of the department and the attacks on the rule of law are among the most dangerous assaults on our democracy carried out by the former president.” - Adam Schiff

Didn't Schiff refer Erik Prince for prosecution for perjury? nytimes.com/2021/06/10/us/…
Yep...somehow Prince flew to meet a Russian in the Seychelles and had no problem lying about it.

"The committee has identified at least six categories of materially false statements that Mr. Prince made during his testimony" intelligence.house.gov/news/documents…
So apparently someone in the White House called the FBI in DC to shut down the Prince ITAR investigation just before Christmas. This is in addition to Barr slow rolling and freezing the perjury investigation. citizensforethics.org/reports-invest…

There is something about a typewriter. The overly complex machine that made you think hard before putting words to paper. theguardian.com/global-develop…
Tom Hanks did a cool app for your iPhone that made keystrokes sound like a typewriter.

Anyone notice a pattern? Maganuts now using "fake news" and "shadow banners" as their sources as absolute proof?
The fundamental rear view mirror question will be; Can an incompetent venal divisive administration also function as an ethical competent unified organization....or did the media make it all up? Let me ask the few hundred thousand dead Americans. vanityfair.com/news/2020/07/h…
"A study in India" and Disney news on a report are enough for Kayleigh. At 6:30 p.m police violently clear mercenary park, Beat downs finish at 7pm. Trump, trumplets and the old man posse do their photo op with bible at 7:06 p.m. Nothing to see here.

Not just the source code..an entire system that was demo'd coincidently around the time the secret Seychelles meeting took place. According to an engineer, Wickr was also pitched to MBz etc as his personal palace comms system. justsecurity.org/wp-content/upl…
Wickr.....and their story...and investors are.... interesting.
