reblog: Great reporting on Integrity Initiative(II) by Moon of Alabama

by arendt at

first, some background:  anonymous charity had published docs from ‘the integrity initiative’; wikileaks on twitter had linked to this video several weeks ago:

part of the text under the video:

On November 3rd, we The Anonymous Charity made public part of the documents we have available. In case London gives no response to our demands during the following weeks, we will reveal the rest of the documents that contain many more secrets of the United Kingdom. 1. Integrity Initiative Handbook. 2. Integrity Initiative Guide to Countering Russian Disinformation May 2018. 3. Austria Cluster 4. Cluster Leaders. 5. Cluster Participants. 6. U.K Cluster. 7. USA and Canada Cluster. 8. xCountry. 9. xOutreach. 10. FCO application form 2017-18. 11. FCO application form 2018v2. 12. FCO proposal Integrity budget 2017-18. 13. Integrity 2018 Activity Budget v3. 14. Top 3 deliverables (for FCO). This has been a broadcast from The Anonymous Charity. We, The Collective, believe in non-violent, peaceful civil disobedience. Throughout history the world has been controlled by big ideologies such as religion, socialism and capitalism to name but a few. These are all forms of slavery that have stopped our evolution and removed our freedom. The Anonymous Charity known as The Collective, see these ideologies for what they are, SYSTEMS OF CONTROL. The time for change is now. No longer shall the people be oppressed by corruption. No longer shall those without a voice go unheard. Will YOU join us? [Updated by now] Backup copies of the documents:

When I’d poked around in the documents on Nov.24, one of my faves was ‘the Intergrity Initiative Handbook‘, especially this portion (ach, it’s a PDF now):

“What funding do they have/have access to/need? Caution! This is always a very sensitive issue. NB 1 If asked about money for funding activities of a cluster, always be firmly vague and helpfully uninformative and at all costs avoid making any funding commitments until we have discussed it! NB 2 When talking about the Institute, be sure you can explain clearly what we are and what we do. NB 3 if asked about our funding, be very clear: the Integrity Initiative is funded by the Institute for Statecraft. The IfS gets its funding from multiple sources to ensure its independence. These include: private individuals; charitable foundations; international organisations (EU, NATO); UK Govt (FCO, MOD”

The Integrity Initiative’s website is here.

b at MOA ran with the new leaks, but back to arendt’s compendium, in part:

“Someone claiming to be part of Anonymous has been dumping documents about II since Novermber. MoA first reported about II running anti-Russian smear campaigns.

British Government Runs Secret Anti-Russian Smear Campaigns

After a couple of weeks hiatus, the II leaks have been headlining MoA daily.

British Spies Infiltrated Bernie Sanders’ Campaign?

The third MoA story lays out a large number of II documents. (BTW – II has acknowledged these documents are genuine. But – wait for it – they blame their prominence in the media on Russian intelligence!)

…as we saw in the information revealed yesterday there is more to it. The Initiative, which has lots of ‘former’ military and intelligence people among its staff, is targeting the political left in Britain as well as in other countries. It is there where it becomes a danger to the democratic societies of Europe.

Newly Released ‘Integrity Intitiative’ Papers Include Proposal For Large Disinformation Campaigns

(Addendum: I said at the time it came out that shouldn’t have tweeted the anti-Corbyn articles, and should explain their funding and mission more clearly. I also said it was being overblown into a conspiracy theory. I stand by both.)”

you may remember ‘james bal(ongna): ‘Ecuador’s patience with Assange has run out – and he has himself to blame’, march 28, 

and  ‘The only barrier to Julian Assange leaving Ecuador’s embassy is pride’,  The WikiLeaks founder is unlikely to face prosecution in the US, charges in Sweden have been dropped – and for the embassy, he’s lost his value as an icon’,  jan. 10, 2018

  1. Thanks for adding to the material that b has had, wendye. It just boggles the mind, but I suppose these people are desperately seeking employment – sort of takes me back to John LeCarre’s spy thrillers which were indeed based on reality – don’t think he has come out with a new one, but this sure sounds like it could be crafted into a best seller – hopefully somebody’s following in his footsteps and I would suggest it to Integrity folk if and when they get that pink slip.

    Wasn’t it Bill Moyers who said ‘You can’t make this stuff up”?

  2. welcome, and i’d meant to come back today to add a couple brief videos from RT, but i’m stuck in an hilarious new atlantic council paper paper warning nato about ‘russia preparing to prepare for a rapid russian attack on eastern europe’. it really is a slick psyop, but they’ll get their bucks for bigger and (not) better bases. anyhoo, i can’t resist writing about nato and africom.

    it’s all Operation Mockingbird, UK (and a bit of US funding), though. “Operation Mockingbird is a large-scale program of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that began in the early 1950s and attempted to manipulate news media for propaganda purposes. nice to see you, ww.

    here are the videos, just for posterity if nothin’ else.
