How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputat

How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations

Social Media in action. Another release from Greenwald of the "Snowden Files"

How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations

One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction. Its time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents.

Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics: (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets; and (2) to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable

This misuse of power is incredibly unnerving. The ruling elite utilizing the social sciences to achieve social control through mass exploitation of the web, controlling the context and contend for desire outcomes. Whatever you thought of the ability to monitor national conversations, times it by a 1000.

The ruling elite , now have the ability, based on data mining of your searches, web browsing and then selection, to properly profile everything about you, in the most extreme way.

You do not deploy that power without a end goal. I would think everyone on this site is suspect and considered a threat for their contrary views regarding the unconstitutional exercising of power.

When ever Eric Snowden releases something our Government has done or said something.

This article is going along that lines with statements from high ranking administration representatives and the POTUS.

Yes this once again shows the abuse of power, but is it really that surprising. What this is, is in a since social marketing, "BOTs" and "reviewers making comments on social media or internet sites to push a Companies message?

Also seems to be the norm with the Democrates over their use of MSM to push their "so called propaganda campaigns" through the MSM. So once the internet got big, political sides started having their "people" start blogging, posting, tweeting, etc about agendas. Yes not totally the same, but along those same line of the use of the internet say politics uses the media. If as in this article our Government using some of the same "marketing tactics" that Corporate America does, but just hasn't had an insider release their Internet IO campaign. So Corporate America infringing on our First Amendment rights as this article depicts?

Very surprising, yet not surprising information in this article. For all the "good" Snowden releases and gets written about. He has release documents to our enemies that is worse than this. If you're one to sit back and say wow this is incredible stuff, what travesty, or government does all of this to Americans? Well in the same "token" he's doing the same thing, giving our adversaries the knowledge ofare TTPs, in our abilities in the actions that we have been doing, our capabilities, etc. Which IMO is dreadfully more wrong than anything like this.

This should be moved IMO too. Tech News and Info or as PENN said Soapbox section.

Who is this great and powerful enemy that requires us to give up all aspects of privacy? If you don't see the bad road this abuse of power is going down you have to be living under a rock in my book.
Just remember the next president. Possibly Hillary will have all this power available to her next. Since when do US Citizens have to take asylum in order to escape unwarranted prosecution by our government.
Greenwald is living in Brazil. He is a journalist that broke a story and he can't come back to the US because he knows they will lock him in a cage.
On another note. Greenwald and crew have been hinting that one aspect of the info they posess is just how much the government influences the media.
