Another excellent article from Glenn Greenwald. I quote:
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. It’s time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents.
Over the last several weeks, I worked with NBC News to publish a series of articles about “dirty trick” tactics used by GCHQ’s previously secret unit, JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group). These were based on four classified GCHQ documents presented to the NSA and the other three partners in the English-speaking “Five Eyes” alliance. Today, we at the Intercept are publishing another new JTRIG document, in full, entitled “The Art of Deception: Training for Online Covert Operations.”
I will let this article from the Electronic Frontier Foundation speak for itself – except to say that the blackmail letter from the FBI to King shows the practices that were already in place in the early 60’s; entrapment and blackmail. Fifty years on, it’s hard to imagine the games that are played.
The Juncker Commission has brought four years of discussions on GMO crops to a close, extracting a compromise from the European Parliament and the Council. Member states that do not want GMOs cultivated inside their borders will retain the right to enforce a ban…
…The agreed text leaves Europe sitting on the fence on the issue: member states still have the right to ban genetically modified crops, which are currently only grown in Spain, Portugal and the Czech Republic.
But new GMOs, already validated by the Commission, will be put on the market in the European Union as soon as the adoption of the text is finalised. This means the 7 GMOs already approved but not cultivated in Europe could find their way into European fields as soon as the text is finalised – in theory as early as next year.
This is inevitable, given what the EU structure is, which is an unelected representation of the powers who control the world game, and they want to see GMOs rolled out across the planet because they know the destructive impact on humanity. Resistance to their plans is always short term, and the national resistance we see in Europe will be watered down and then eliminated, regardless of what the people want. It’s how they work on every front, and we are naïve to think otherwise.
