Sometimes I feel as if information is being released to the public in very clever ways, and other times I feel as if information is being manipulated or hidden in ways I may not be able to detect. Do you have any thoughts on disinformation and how to deal with disinformation?
This is an extremely important question and perhaps the heart of the matter for intelligence (decision-support) whether secret or open. Discernment. Data integrity, source validation, accuracy and veracity. I am thrilled to have you ask this question because in my experience this is the Achilles heel of most OSINT endeavors where idiots take social media at face value and ignore everything else.
The below graphic captures my early thoughts on this topic.
My summary review for each of the above books can be read below.
I also particularly recommend the book below by John Lewis Gaddis — history is a “denied area” because everyone lies. The USA did not win the War of Independence nor did we win WWII.
More recently Matt Taibbi has offered this book that I have reviewed:
And this book surprised me but I find it absolutely credible. The British (in the USA, represented by the Pilgrim Society as well as MI-5 and MI-6) and the Zionists are the main enemy, not the Chinese, Iranians, or Russians.
In this context I want to mention false flag events and mind-control. A major failing of US law enforcement, apart from being completely corrupt at the top (90% good people trapped in bad systems but we have too many FBI, state attorneys, judges, and prosecutors who are being bribed or blackmailed) is that in a false flag event people might actually die, but without great discernment — and with a complicit treasonous media — it is too easy to embrace a totally false conclusion — witness 9/11 and Sandy Hook among others.

On mind control it is very clear that CIA, NASA, and the Nazis, along with MI-5, MI-6, the Mossad and others including Chinese and Russian intelligence, are far advanced in creating zombies that will do whatever is desired and have no memory of it (although some start to remember if allowed to live past middle-age, one reason so many mind-controlled zombies are assassinated on site or shortly after they do what they were mind-controlled into doing. Here are a couple of links.
Here in the USA is is now legal for the Executive — particularly the Department of Defense — to lie to Congress about how it is spending money. The Department of Justice is on record as saying it has the right to lie to the Courts whenever it wishes in relation to “national security.” And Barack Obama modified the Smith-Mundt Act to make it legal for the US Government to lie to the public inclusive of false flag events such as the Federal Emergency Management Office (FEMA) and the Mossad and CIA/FBI were conspiring to do under Dr. James Fetzer and I created enough of a backlash including documents to the White House, Congressional Committees, and the Attorney General, that put them on notice of liability in the future.
Social media, created by, funded by, and manipulated by the Department of Defense and the CIA, among others inclusive especially of the Mossad and its unregistered treasonous agent the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), is now being exposed — as is the Mainstream Media — as a house of cards — they lie about everything.
In my view the challenges boil down to four:
- Having a holistic analytic model that integrates true cost economics
- Asking the right question with a reasoned context
- Collecting all or most of the information in all relevant languages and mediums
- Having a process to detect errors, lies, and subtle manipulation
It is much easier to lie and manipulate in the digital domain because it is so easy to create bots and deep fake videos and so on. The analog domain is in the intermediate domain — forgeries, crafted fake narratives, and more.
It is the human domain — “ground truth” — where it is easiest to get at the truth and the nuances of the truth. The problem is that humans are complicated and time consuming and intelligence agencies as well as government agencies are LAZY and generally not subject matter experts and not particularly discerning.
The standard in Washington today is pay to play — the facts don't matter. This makes is much easier for those who could not muster the facts nor defend a narrative to get by within the range from incompetence to treason.
I have been very disappointed by the lack of intelligence and integrity in the US secret intelligence community these past 40 years but I now realize that is by design. They were created to be a servant to the Deep State, not to the public. I credit Admiral Michael S. Rogers, then Director of NSA, with breaking the death and treason spiral of which then CIA Director John Brennan was the top representative in service to then President Barack Obama who will never achieve the heights of treason that characterize the career of Dick Cheney, but who disgraced the White House and the USA in a manner most foul.
Admiral Rogers — and General Flynn — should receive the Medal of Freedom. The Great Awakening would not have been possible without both of them.
My answer does not do your question justice, but it is a start. If you want a context — a sense of what is possible to grasp if you cast a wide enough net and have an open mind, watch the 90 minute movie below, also available at this link as graphics with planned remarks:
A US Open Source Agency based at Fort McNair with nodes at McDill AFB and Dam Neck (SEALS, 2nd Fleet, NATO ACT) and military to military nodes in Copenhagen (Arctic focus), Ecuador, India, and Turkey, among other locations, is the essential next step.
