Trolls circulating pic of me with terror recruiter AC. I interviewed him, I'm a journalist. Also called for his arrest. Try better next time

https://twitter.com/OzKaterji/status/12...
Woke up to my inbox full of the far right calling me a terrorist because the fake “Imam of peace” posted the photo of me meeting Anjem Choudary for an interview and tried to paint me as his friend/supporter by removing the context of why I met him and what I said about him.

It’s this kind of thing that gets people arrested or killed.

Guys, I know most of you far right types are too stupid to read basic English, but please try harder. Choudary thinks people like me are an abomination that should be murderered.
It’s amazing that a journalist like Louis Theroux gets to spend weeks embedded with Nazis without being associated with them but I interview one extremist and then refuse to publish our interview because it serves nothing other than his extremist propaganda, yet I’m tarred for it

3,000 likes and 1,000 retweets for a complete lie, and as a result my notifications are flooded with racist attacks and threats.

Why? Because I tried to expose Anjem Choudary as an ISIS recruiter BEFORE his arrest and conviction, while he was still getting TV debate invites.
Choudary was smart enough to see through what I was attempting to do in the interview. As a result, me and @mgdowney decided not to publish or provide AC with another platform.

I have been falsely targeted as a terrorist for years over this interview.

As a result, I have to wake up to hundreds of messages along the lines of:

‘Go kill urself jihadi rat’

Why would any Muslim even bother trying to become a journalist in an environment like this?

NPR: Američani so med eliminacijo Bagdadija ubili 2 civilista.

https://www.npr.org/2019/12/03/78408960...

A Syrian farmer says his arm was blown off and his two friends were killed by U.S. helicopter fire in the village where American special forces were attacking the compound of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in October.
His account is supported by analysis of photos of shrapnel and of a damaged van. It runs counter to an earlier statement by the U.S. military that special forces "protected all of the non-combatants" during the Oct. 26 raid.
In response to NPR's inquiry about the incident, a U.S. defense official said the military will review what happened.
Cousins Khaled Mustafa Qurmo, 27, and Khaled Abdel Majid Qurmo, 30, were driving their friend home on Oct. 26 when helicopters fired at their van, according to the friend, Barakat Ahmad Barakat, 30, who survived the attack.
Barakat said he and his friends rushed out of the car, but one fell, his legs filled with shrapnel. Barakat took his other friend in his arms.

...

A U.S. defense official asking not to be named said by email, "This is the first report we have received of possible civilian casualties."
"Initial reports are that the white van at the scene of the Baghdadi raid had fired on U.S. helicopters participating in the raid. Surveillance footage will be reviewed to determine if an investigation needs to be opened based upon this additional information," the official said.
But seven relatives of the dead said the men who were killed operated a van service and had no connection to ISIS or any armed group. Barakat said the van carried no weapons.
The relatives spoke to NPR by phone, Facebook and video chat.

Nit o delčku puščavskega viharja.

https://twitter.com/johnismay/status/12...

In 2003 one of my EOD instructors called BLU-97 bomblets "engineer killers." In 2014, as a new jschool grad, I knew there must be a story there. Been reporting it out ever since. We published today in @NYTimesAtWar. That instructor said of all the things Uncle Sam has made over the years, the BLU-97 is truly one of the worst. No render-safe procedure (aka no way to defuze it), and duds are so sensitive that the only thing you can do is blow them in place without touching them
The CBU-87 cluster bomb is an "area attack weapon" that dispenses 202 BLU-97 bomblets over an area roughly 800 ft x 400 ft. In 1991, they made their combat debut in Desert Storm.
The US Air Force dropped 13,941 CBU-87s containing 2,027,070 BLU-97s. About 20% failed to detonate
The morning of 26FEB1991, the Army's 27th Engineer Battalion reached Objective WHITE: the As Salman Airfield in southern Iraq.
When CENTCOM planners had expected the war to drag on and suffer tens of thousands of casualties, this airfield was to be a major logistics base

Days before they crossed the berm into Iraq, a four-man EOD team was fragged out to the battalion. They were not well received. The engineers told them they had the situation under control, and the EOD techs were just along for the ride.

The night before they arrived at As Salman, intel reports said they could expect to find GATOR mines on the airfield. GATORs were a new type of landmine, also dispensed as a cluster munition and making its debut in Desert Storm. The engineers said they'd take care of them. GATORs popped out a number of nearly-invisible tripwires that were extremely hard to detect even under the best of daylight conditions. The engineers thought they could sweep them at night using red-filtered flashlights.

Bad idea, said EOD.

We'll be careful, said the engineers.

When they reconned the 10,000-ft airstrip, they found a dud Mk-82 500-lb bomb on the north end, and 10-15x BLU-97s at the south end. The engineers' Alpha Company, led by Cpt. Mario Fajardo, had the runway clearance mission. EOD warned that BLU-97's could not be moved. We'll be careful, Cpt. Fajardo said. The senior-ranking EOD tech, a staff sergeant, lost the argument based on rank. The battalion spread out along the airfield. EOD was ordered to sit in their trucks.
All the while, another EOD staff sergeant on the team named Mike Crick was taking notes in a logbook.
As soon as they'd linked up with the 27th Eng. Batt., they knew there was bad blood, and the engineers were dangerously ignorant of the hazards they'd encounter. Crick's logbook entry for 1630, 26FEB1991 tells what happened next
The investigation report makes it clear that Fajardo was convinced by a platoon sergeant to break protocol and pick up BLU-97s by hand and stack them for a single disposal shot.
The PSG thought they were just wasting time. Five other soldiers died with them for their mistake

For 28 years, folks have puzzled over why the explosion happened. But the only people who know exactly why that pile of bomblets went high-order are all dead. Fajardo was born in Ecuador, but moved to the U.S. as a child and grew up in Queens.
As one of the few New Yorkers to die in Desert Storm, the @nytimes covered the news of his death.
https://www.nytimes.com/1991/03/01/nyre...

At that time, the Pentagon erroneously reported that Fajardo and the others at As Salman were killed by landmines. The military never corrected that story publicly. Eventually I reached surviving family members for each of the 7 KIAs.
Some knew the truth, others still did not. The Times wrote a lengthy story about Fajardo & other NY-area troops who died in the war.
One of those mentioned is Spc. Cindy Beaudoin of Plainfield, Conn. The military said she stepped on a landmine, but she didn't. She was killed by a dud submunition
https://www.nytimes.com/1991/03/15/nyre...

And on Sunday, at the end of a five-year journey, I finally went to visit Mario in person. He’s buried in Sect. 14 Plot 972 at Calverton National Cemetery in Long Island.
The inscription from his mother Sonia says that he was her pride and joy.
I didn’t know that inscription was there until I saw it in person. Of all the surprises I encountered in reporting this story out, I didn’t expect to find something at the last minute that would just emotionally crush me.

Ne vidim razloga, da ne bi bila tudi kakšna vsebina dopisovanja vrste Cease & Desist, kot tudi njen sam obstoj hkrati uvrščene med poslovne skrivnosti.

Na kratko: Tareq je zbral dokaze in dokumentacijo, kako so ZDA v nekem drugem primeru bistveno vplivale na vsebino poročila OPCW, tako da se ni omenjalo za ZDA neprijetnih dejstev. Newsweeku se tega ni zdelo vredno objaviti. Tareq je dal odpoved in napovedal, da bo to objavil drugje. Newsweek zdaj pravi, da gre za kršenje njihovih lastninskih pravic oz. tajnosti določene s pogodbo o zaposlitvi.

Seveda se pa še vedno spomnimo, kako so ZDA oz. John Bolton med Iraško vojno zaradi nesodelovanja pri širjenju laži o orožju za množično uničevanje odstranile prejšnjega generalnega direktorja OPCW Bustanija.

Ne vem, kaj je Tareq zbral, ampak zelo verjetno gre za nekaj v zvezi z drugim OPCW žvižgačem, o katerem zadnji mesec teče aktivna debata po bolj obskurnih kotičkih interneta. Morda ima kaj novega, ampak glede na znano nisem ravno optimističen.

Kaj se lahko na hitro ugotovi z OSINT

Emails And Reading Comprehension: OPCW Douma Coverage Misses Crucial Facts

Over the weekend, WikiLeaks released an email from an employee within the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) indicating that the OPCW “misrepresents the facts he and his colleagues discovered on the ground”. This email has since been used to call into question the impartiality and effectiveness of the OPCW’s conclusion about the alleged chemical weapon attack in Douma, Syria.

However, a comparison of the points raised in the letter against the final Douma report makes it amply clear that the OPCW not only addressed these points, but even changed the conclusion of an earlier report to reflect the concerns of said employee.

Unusually, in the case of the Douma attack, the OPCW issued two reports. The first was an interim report of 26 pages published on 6 July 2018. The second was a final report of 106 pages, published on 1 March 2019.

The letter released by Wikileaks, dated 22 June 2018, raises concerns about a “redacted report”. The points raised in the letter are clearly not present in the interim report; however, they are present, or else are in modified form, in the final report.
Therefore, it appears that the so-called “redacted report” provided a basis or early draft for the final report.

...

Although this letter appears to be at least superficially damaging to the OPCW, after reading the actual reports published by the OPCW it is clear that this letter is outdated and inapplicable to the final Douma report.

The letter refers to a “redacted report” that was either not published or was heavily updated before it became the final version of the report. The issues raised in the letter appear to have either been addressed with further work and research, or changed to reflect the concerns of the employee who wrote the letter.

...

Based on this analysis, it is clear that WikiLeaks, the Daily Mail, La Repubblica, and Stundin have failed to understand the context of this letter and the final Douma report.

If the people covering this story had actually taken the time to read the letter and the FFM reports, they may well have chosen to publicize it in a very different manner.

When the Caesar Bill becomes law, it will make the current sanctions on the Assad regime seem like child's play.

Basically: anyone that provides financial, material or tech support to the Assad regime will be sanctioned by the US gov. This is not limited to aerospace, chem weapons nor oil...this is a blanket warning against dealing with Assad, his gov, intermediaries & regime contractors

This is a massive warning to countries, businesses & orgs that had hopes of doing business with Assad. It is now a United States of America law that anyone who does business with Assad or any of his official and unofficial partners is at risk of debilitating American sanctions. e.g.: Huawei was thinking of finally servicing Syria's cellular duopoly and pocket the money along with Assad and his family? it won't.

Siemens, Ericsson and others are already out of the question.

Oil & gas procurers, insurers, contractors in all fields, lenders, service providers, merchants, basically any business that aspires to not be on the US Treasury's radar will refrain from doing business with Assad.

Par svežih detajlov, sicer večinoma obnova tarikovega bloga.

How a reporter who made mistakes became a hero on the internet

Ten days ago, Newsweek reporter Tareq Haddad announced on Twitter that he had resigned from his job after editors rejected his "newsworthy revelations" for "no valid reason".

...

Haddad had been hired as a reporter 11 weeks earlier with a brief to produce four stories a day. That clearly didn't allow much time for original research or fact-checking and he mostly found himself rewriting tales picked up from other publications – often bordering on clickbait.

...

He admired the work of Seymour Hersh and Robert Fisk, and became interested in the chemical weapons issue in Syria. In 2017, during a 10-month reporting stint at IBTimes, he wrote an article suggesting the Assad regime had not been responsible for a sarin attack in Khan Sheikhoun. It quoted a widely-discredited article by Seymour Hersh which said: "The Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin."

IBTimes turned Haddad's article down with a brusque rejection note: "Its narrative is highly controversial and likely to offend and only a writer or expert of repute (e.g. Noam Chomsky) could get away with such an incendiary thesis."

Undeterred, Haddad submitted it to Counterpunch, where it was published.

After joining Newsweek his interest in chemical weapons continued. In October, he wrote a story which began: "Turkey, a Nato member, has allegedly used chemical weapons against civilians in northern Syria."

...

"Use of white phosphorus on civilian targets is banned by the Geneva and Chemical Weapons conventions," Haddad wrote. He obtained a quote from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) saying it had "not yet determined the credibility of these allegations" and he implied Turkey was behaving hypocritically by having recently donated €30,000 to support the OPCW's work.

The trouble with this was that Haddad had got it wrong. Legally speaking, white phosphorus is not a chemical weapon. Its use is covered by the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons – which means it's not a matter for the OPCW.

...

Towards the end of November, Haddad began pressing Newsweek to let him write about the OPCW whistleblower who claims there were "irregularities" in the investigation of an alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria. Haddad was so keen to do it that he even offered to write it on his day off.

...

Haddad also cited an article by Peter Hitchens, the Mail on Sunday columnist, as evidence that the story was worth doing. The Mail "would not publish something like this lightly," he wrote, adding that Hitchens' reporting was "clearly solid and validated by the available facts".

Rejecting the proposal, Haddad's editor pointed out that the truth of the story was disputed and that even Hitchens had included the words "if substantiated" in his first paragraph.

Haddad has since published a very detailed account of the events leading up to his resignation from Newsweek, and he clearly believes that his article was rejected for political reasons.

...

This, of course, is music to the ears of conspiracy theorists and they have piled in to support him on social media.
The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or
the convinced Communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and
fiction and the distinction between true and false no longer exist.

The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or

Institute for Statecraft @ Wikipedia

Ne vidim problema:

The Institute for Statecraft is a charity founded in 2009 by Christopher Donnelly[1] and Daniel Lafayeedney[2], legally based in Fife, Scotland. Its stated objects are to advance education in the fields of governance and statecraft, and to advance human rights.[3] The organisation manages the 'Integrity Initiative' amongst other projects.[4][5]

...

The Integrity Initiative is a project of the Institute for Statecraft with a stated mission of defending democracy from disinformation, in particular from Russia.[4][5][6]




Potencialen problem, ampak imej v mislih, da je na oblasti konzervativna stranka:

The Integrity Initiative received government funding of £296,500 in the 2017-18 financial year and would receive a further £1,961,000 in 2018-19. This funding was allocated from the cross-department Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF), to counter "disinformation" overseas, as part of a £100 million five years programme.[17][6][18] The funding was part of the Counter Disinformation and Media Development Programme.[19][20]

In Financial Years 2016-17 and 2017-18, the UK Ministry of Defence through its Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust's Local Grants Programme awarded a total of £177,650 to 12 separate small projects run by the Shared Outcomes Programme, an initiative of the Institute for Statecraft. In addition, in 2017 the British Army made a payment of £6,800 to the Institute for Statecraft for specialist training.[21]

The Institute for Statecraft has also received funding from NATO, the Lithuanian Ministry of Defence, the US State Department and Facebook.[22]




Problem:

In December 2018, the Sunday Mail reported that The Integrity Initiative's Twitter account had been used to attack Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party and Seumas Milne, the director of communications for Corbyn.

...

The Daily Record, which had published an examination of the Integrity Initiave earlier in 2019, was critical of the organisation after the release of the apology. In an editorial, it said that the Integrity Initiative "has apparently left itself exposed to Russian hackers, fallen foul of Foreign Office rules, made itself the subject of an emergency question in the House of Commons and apparently broken charity law". It claimed the organisation runs "clusters of media people, some who admit to being involved, others who don’t".[14] The Labour party also called for an investigation of the Integrity Initiative and its links to the British government.[15]

A cautionary tale in just how difficult this can be, and how easily it can backfire, can be found in a pan-European effort called the Integrity Initiative. On the surface, the effort – run by a not-for-profit – seems laudable and uncontroversial.

...

In practice, the Integrity Initiative receives considerable funding from the UK Foreign Office and other national governments, and is primarily focused on countering Russian misinformation – and this effort, plus its slightly mysterious mission statement and unwillingness to name its contributors, have made it the perfect target for conspiracy.

...

What happened next would surprise few Russia watchers. As with so many others who might oppose Russia’s agenda, the Integrity Initiative found itself the victim of a hacking attack, and had its internal documents anonymously posted online.

As I landed after a six-hour flight with no internet during a December weekend, I discovered a number of British leftwing activists and then WikiLeaks (where I briefly worked from 2010 to 2011), with its 5.4 million Twitter followers, had discovered my name among a group of journalists named in the leaked files.

My name was present as I had given a one-hour training talk on verifying online information to a group of international journalists at the Frontline Club in London, for which I was paid £225. As the talk had been co-organised by the Integrity Initiative, its agenda was published online, with the names of everyone who had spoken there.

If you want to be taken seriously, understanding ICANN and WHOIS might be a good start.
If a person is throwing these kinds of accusations around without understanding what they’re talking about, it might be a good indicator they’re not a serious analyst.

Samir Kassir @ Wikipedia

Kassir was among the first victims in the growing list of political assassinations that occurred in Lebanon from 2004 to 2008. These began with the attempted assassination of Marwan Hamadeh and followed with the killing of Rafik Hariri in 2005. After Kassir, George Hawi, the former head of the Lebanese Communist Party was targeted by another car-bomb; this was followed by failed assassination attempts at former Interior Minister and former Syrian ally Elias Murr and popular LBCI TV anchorwoman and journalist May Chidiac who survived, but lost an arm and leg. On 12 December 2005, Samir Kassir's colleague, An Nahar's chief editor, and top anti-Syria legislator Gebran Tueni, was killed by a car bomb. Pierre Amine Gemayel, the former Minister of Industry, was another victim in the series of assassinations. MP Walid Eido from the Hariri-led Future movement was killed near the Military Bath of Beirut on 13 June 2007. Shortly afterwards, MP Antoine Ghanem of the Lebanese Phalanges Party (aka Kataeb Party), was killed in another car bomb on 19 September 2007 in the Sin al-Fil suburb of Beirut. Then, second-in-command of the Lebanese Armed Forces, General François al-Hajj was killed in the military-secured suburb of Baabda on 12 December 2007. One month later, security chief and top Lebanese investigator into the International Tribunal for the Hariri assassination was killed in January 2008. Many have blamed Syria for all the recent assassinations of its opponents.
