    Integrity in an Alice in Wonderland kind of way

    New Documents Reveal a Covert British Military-Intelligence Smear Machine Meddling In American Politics

    The Integrity Initiative has mobilized an international disinformation campaign across Europe. Now, with government and right-wing foundation money, this massive “political smear unit” is infiltrating the US.

    (The) leaked documents revealed a secret network of spies, prominent journalists and think-tanks colluding under the umbrella of a group called “Integrity Initiative” to shape domestic opinion—and to smear political opponents of the right-wing Tory government, including the leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn.

    Nice to see the Left has its own version of InfoWars.

    Typical. The British have a covert propaganda machine and get caught by hackers.

    I've not come across that conspiracy theorist web site before now.

    Delighted to read that I can become a Moderate Rebel for $10 or more per month, an Information Warrior for $25 or more per month or [gasp!!] a Key Strategic Ally for $50 or more per month!

    Do I have to provide my own aluminium foil hat or does it come with the subscription?

    And have you seen what is on it??

    "All content has been temporarily removed from this site, pending an investigation into the theft of data from the Institute for Statecraft and its programme, the Integrity Initiative.

    Initial findings indicate that the theft was part of a campaign to undermine the work of the Integrity Initiative in researching, publicising and countering the threat to European democracies from disinformation and other forms of hybrid warfare.

    The website will be relaunched shortly. In the meantime, we expect to be able to publish an analysis of the hack and its significance in the near future.

    We are keen to trace both the source of the hack and the use to which our data - some genuine, some falsified - has been put. If you have any information that you think may be of relevance, please contact us here."

    Hence my lack of confidence in the news that "leaked documents revealed a secret network of spies,"
