My written statement as included in The Steele Report coming out on Monday, 17 August 2020:
Shadowgate – the full film debunked
I have watched the entire movie, which is being widely shared as I write this. You can see the entire movie at no cost here: https://youtu.be/tmAJU2jGuHs with the back up available here:
Bottom line: this movie is absolutely worth watching. The good news is that this is totally over-blown. I was a co-founder of the original Information Warfare Conference with Winn Schwartau, and I wrote one of the first books on INFORMATION OPERATIONS: All Information, All Languages, All the Time. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0971566135/ossnet-20
I also wrote the original open source intelligence handbooks for the Defense Intelligence Agency, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and the 95th Civil Affairs Brigade (Special Operations Forces). In my view this movie is presenting a worst-case analysis of very corrupt contracting that did not actually result in the outcomes claimed. Tore means well, and she no doubt did work for John Brennan, but John Brennan is a piece of shit who could never in a million years qualify for an executive position with any social media enterprise. All of this is about extremely expensive chicken-shit. Most of it is illegal – Tore could be useful as a witness against Brennan. Tore’s claims of being able to make people do stuff is in my view total crap. I cannot overstate the FACT that we process less than 1% of all the data we have in hand, or the FACT that we do not have high-speed high-volume sense-making tools at either the desktop or back office points. I served with the Military Information Support Task Force in Afghanistan (MISTF-A) in 2013. MISTF-A was an absolute unmitigated failure in Afghanistan. It could not shape nor predict nor neutralize. I don’t think anything has changed since then.
