The Public Needs a Lesson in Russian Strategic Deception: It’s What You Want to Hear

1 Share

The 2016 election will be remembered for, among other things, Russian attacks including cyber theft, propaganda, trolls, bots, disinformation, efforts to use social media to stoke negative passions and possible espionage (in common parlance, collusion).  Several commentators have correctly reminded us that such activity is wholly consistent with Russian intelligence activity over the decades.  As such, we should also be on the lookout for another classic Russian trick: strategic deception. Lack of public awareness about this part of the Kremlin playbook threatens to unravel whatever traction we gain in finding the truth about 2016 and in defending ourselves against current threats and ones over the horizon.

Strategic deception is a secret, offensive effort to create an alternative narrative that serves Moscow’s interests. Unlike Russia’s fake news and disinformation efforts designed to confuse or meet tactical ends, strategic deception is designed to build a believable and consistent narrative forcing the recipient to take a specific action.  It was used in the past to safeguard the identity of Russian spies in the U.S. and uncover perceived threats to the regime.  Efforts to deceive are most effective when they play to preconceived notions, and tell an adversary something it is desperate to know.  In this sense, Facebook and Russian deception have something in common – they succeed by selling us exactly what we want to hear.  Facebook tracks your likes and interests, providing you with what you are inclined to believe.  Clever deception, especially when dipped in some of the same insights of behavioral psychology, does much the same thing.

While I can’t pretend to know when and how the Russians will undertake a deception operation, my sense is that it will be around the issue of collusion. If there was collusion with the Trump team, the Russians will surely be looking to steer U.S. authorities toward alternate explanations for the activities of 2015 and 2016.  If there was no collusion whatsoever, the Russians may follow an alternative strategy of actively promoting the story as a means of weakening the Trump Administration and our trust in the democratic system.  In either case, their goal is the same: turn the U.S. against itself and protect Russian interests.

Moscow’s effort to safeguard the identity of its spies in 1980s Washington is a classic example of this deception strategy in action.

In the mid-1980s the KGB was facing a dilemma.  They found themselves in the enviable position of having two highly placed spies inside the U.S. national security apparatus – Aldrich Ames at CIA and Robert Hanssen at FBI.  The two had informed the KGB of a group of Soviet officials who had been spying for Washington.  Despite KGB efforts to quietly remove the traitors from positions of access, the Soviet leadership insisted that the Russian spies be immediately arrested, imprisoned and executed.  The KGB was left with the burden of safeguarding Ames and Hanssen from U.S. officials who would now be looking hard for explanations of why their long-time spies were suddenly uncovered.  The Soviets needed to provide alternative explanations rather than allowing the Americans to accept the real answer – that they had their own spies in their midst.

The Russians turned to one of their most developed and time-honored skills-sets – deception.  They looked to send false signals to the Americans to force them to look anywhere else for an explanation for their losses, and not focus on a possible mole inside the grounds.

The deception effort was aimed directly within the walls of CIA.  The KGB knew that CIA was hesitant to again turn itself inside-out looking for spies.  CIA had suffered through a period of self-destruction at the hands of the recently-retired powerful counterintelligence chief James Jesus Angleton, who had convinced CIA leadership that the Soviets were ten feet tall.  The subsequent hunt for moles inside CIA had destroyed careers, severely damaged the effort to recruit new spies and created a sense of paralyzing paranoia within the ranks.  Into this atmosphere the Russians sought to create a narrative that the CIA’s 1986 spy losses were a combination of poor CIA tradecraft, KGB luck, a technical penetration of Moscow Station and possibly a breach of CIA communications between their Headquarters and the field.

They did this primarily by dangling a double agent to the CIA Station in Moscow.  Senior KGB counterintelligence officer Alexander Zhomov (GTPROLOGUE) made clandestine contact with the CIA Station Chief in Moscow, and over several months provided detailed information on the KGB monitoring CIA officers in the capital.  Zhomov provided a wealth of real, sensitive information that was twisted slightly to shape a narrative that the CIA was ready to accept – that the losses were due to a mixture of CIA mistakes and KGB lucky breaks.  Zhomov was taken more seriously than he might otherwise have been due to his high position in the KGB.  The CIA was on guard for possible double agents who would sell false or low value information. Past experience, however, had taught them that the KGB was extremely unlikely to provide CIA direct contact with a senior staff officer with access to the crown jewels for fear that he might be turned.  That’s the very risk that the KGB took and changed their MO in furtherance of the highly crafted deception effort to protect their penetrations in Washington.

A separate but complementary project was also launched suggesting the KGB had success breaking into CIA’s encrypted communications, which further taxed the agency’s limited resources devoted to uncovering the reasons for the spy losses.  All of these efforts were designed to shape the narrative, send signals to the Americans and buy time that could be used to protect their investments in Ames and Hanssen.  Once CIA and FBI had finally untangled it all, the passage of time had bought the KGB several more years to exploit Ames and Hanssen (and others?).

By the mid-80s, the CIA was ready to believe almost any other explanation other than the obvious – that they had a mole in their midst.  Angleton’s paralyzing paranoia and distrust had torn CIA apart to the point that the pendulum might have swung too far in the other direction.

Deep knowledge of your adversary is critical in crafting an effective deception effort.  The tendency to accept what you want to hear and dismiss what you don’t is a hazard to policymakers and intelligence analysts (and laypersons) alike.  We wanted to believe that Saddam had nuclear weapons.  Also, for many years the Soviets dismissed the reporting of their best secret source – Kim Philby – because he told them (accurately) that the British Intelligence Service did not have any spies inside the Kremlin prior to WWII.  Soviet leadership simply couldn’t believe that they were not the top target of the vaunted British Intelligence Service.

Russia has long-experience with strategic deception, and has invested heavily in understanding American psychological fibers. Indeed, the first operation of the nascent Soviet intelligence service following the Russian revolution was the creation of an elaborate but fake monarchist organization to attract opponents of the regime.  “Operation Trust” ran for several years and led to the (literal) liquidation of the anti-Bolshevik resistance.  In the 21st century Putin has invested heavily in his intelligence services, benefitting from sensitive stolen information from cyber thieves and human spies, to include recently reported NSA breaches and access to Edward Snowden, among others.

In 2016, it was clear that the United States was not ready to defend against Russian interference.  Unlike the Europeans who were far more savvy about Russian intentions, there is a tendency in U.S. culture to “trust but verify.”  U.S. journalists tend to report about Russia as if it is a western country where rule-of-law reigns.  We try to verify and question every allegation before we accept the worst.  We assume things are on the up-and-up unless we can prove otherwise – innocent until proven guilty.

Russia benefits from our naivete.  What we need to do first is open eyes to the consistent, decades-long pattern of Russian attacks.  Corruption, espionage, lies, disinformation and deception are the routine tools of Putin and the Kremlin, and will continue to be so into the indefinite future.  We would be better served to assume ill-intent, and not feel obligated to uncover conclusive evidence of wrong-doing in every case.  Totally uncorrupted business is an aberration in Russia, and we have decades of experience with their use of disinformation and deception to push any agenda that damages U.S. and western cohesion.  While we may not find incontrovertible proof every time, the cumulative and historical effect is that Americans should preserve a very healthy skepticism when evaluating the motivations of the Russian government – guilty until proven innocent.  What’s more, because so much of what Russia does is secret and managed by the intelligence services, we are rarely going to be able to develop the kind of “evidence” that we would like to divine guilt or innocence.

As I’ve written recently, I believe that collusion is possible and that the much-maligned Steele dossier is more right than wrong.  However, I also suspect that it will be very hard to prove.  Into this atmosphere Russian intelligence will certainly look to frame the narrative to fit their interests.  They may, for example, provide a false lead suggesting collusion with the Trump campaign, only to pull the rug later to try to discredit the whole investigatory enterprise. Or they may allow the release of a false and weak form of kompromat on the President to suggest they don’t have anything stronger. Who knows what exactly their craft will deliver to a segment of the population ready to believe a certain narrative. The recent flood of information on Russian troll factories and use of social media may be part and parcel of a Russian effort to divert our attention away from possible collusion.  I don’t know.  They certainly left many fingerprints in their use of social media platforms. At the very least, however, what we do know is that Moscow will most likely seek to muddy the waters and make it hard to know what information is real, and what’s not. A basic awareness of strategic deception can help us avoid these traps, and pry ourselves loose when we’re found in one.

Shooting in Chicago Starbucks kills man, wounds another and boy, 12

1 Share

CHICAGO — A man was killed and two others, including a 12-year-old boy, were injured in a shooting in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood.

Authorities say the shooting occurred at a Starbucks, where a man’s body could be seen late Thursday through the shop’s window.

Police say the 12-year-old and a man were taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

CBS Chicago reports the incident began nearby with a drug deal between the gunman and one of the victims, who then ran into the Starbucks. The shooter followed him inside and fired shots, fatally wounding him and hitting another man and the boy.

A witness told the station he heard gunfire and saw a suspect wearing a ski mask fleeing the scene.

The shooting took place in a bustling area on the city’s North Side that contains several music venues, including the famed Green Mill Cocktail Lounge and the Aragon Ballroom.

Alleged Mastermind of Kremlin Troll Factory Denies Involvement in U.S. Elections

1 Share
Dmitry Prigozhin (Mikhail Metzel / TASS)

Russian businessman Dmitry Prigozhin has denied ties to the infamous Kremlin troll factory suspected of being behind Russian meddling in U.S. presidential elections last year.

A St. Petersburg native, Prigozhin’s ties to the Kremlin go back to hosting dinner receptions for President Vladimir Putin in the early 2000s. He is reportedly an investor in the private military contractor Wagner and the alleged owner of the St. Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency, also known as the “Kremlin’s troll factory.”

The U.S. Treasury added Concord Management and Consulting and Concord Catering to its list of sanctioned companies in June after identifying Prigozhin as the “owner or controller” of both entities.

U.S authorities suspect the business of being behind hundreds of fake Facebook and Twitter accounts that reached tens of millions of Americans during the 2016 election campaign that saw Donald Trump win the White House.

Wagner has reportedly taken part in combat operations in eastern Ukraine and Syria.

In his first public statement since the news broke, Prigozhin refuted a connection to the troll factory and expressed bewilderment at the prospect of further punitive actions by the U.S. government.

“Neither the company Concord nor other structures owned by the businessman are in any way connected to activity designed to interfere with the American elections,” Prigozhin’s spokesperson told the RBC business outlet.

“We do not know the reasons for the possible introduction of new sanctions on the part of the U.S. (government).”

The U.S. placed Prigozhin on its sanctions list in 2016 and added Concord Management and Consulting, as well as and Concord Catering, to its list of prohibited companies in June 2017.

Sessions: People inspired by ISIS represent majority of terror probes

1 Share

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Thursday that “people inspired by ISIS” represent the majority of terrorist investigations being conducted in the US – probes that are underway in all 50 states.

“The largest category of counterterrorism cases in the United States under investigation today are of people inspired by ISIS,” Sessions said in an address about national security at the US attorney’s office in Manhattan. “We are not slowing down. The FBI currently has ongoing terrorism-related investigations in all 50 states.”

Speaking just days after Uzbek immigrant Sayfullo Saipov drove a pickup truck through a bike-path a few blocks north of the World Trade Center and killed eight people, Sessions said one of the tools the US needs to combat terrorism is the ability to gather evidence electronically.

“To investigate terrorism, we will need access to electronic evidence in a lawful way,” he said. “Too often, technology companies refuse to cooperate with law enforcement or even to comply with court orders. Over just the past year, the FBI was unable to open access to nearly 7,500 mobile devices submitted to its Computer Analysis and Response Team, even though there was court orders or legal authority to do so. We can only imagine what the consequences of not getting that information will be.”

He said although the Islamic State terror group’s forces are being degraded in Syria and Iraq, they and other jihadist groups still pose a threat as they spread out into dark corners of the world and try to recruit new followers to their sick ideology.

“Terrorist networks are becoming increasingly decentralized and harder to track. Terrorist groups increasingly use social networking sites to recruit new members and lone wolf attackers around the globe. They then can use encrypted communication channels to plan their crimes, some of which can be carried out within hours,” he said.

Federal prosecutors said Saipov, 29, was inspired to carry out his terror attack after watching hours of ISIS snuff films on his cell phone.

Sessions also backed Trump’s call for “extreme vetting” of immigrants following Saipov’s terror attack and suggested that the US would use all “lawful tools” to go after them, including Guantanamo Bay.

“Terrorists should know: this administration will use all lawful tools at our disposal, including prosecution in Article III courts and at Guantanamo Bay,” Sessions said.

“If anyone has any doubt about that, they can ask the more than 500 criminals whom the Department of Justice has convicted of terrorism-related offenses since 9/11. And they can ask the dozens of enemy combatants in Guantanamo Bay.”

Exclusive: Trump agrees to pick up 90 percent of Puerto Rico rebuilding costs

1 Share

November 2, 2017 / 5:48 PM / Updated an hour ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump on Thursday agreed to expand the use of disaster aid to rebuild Puerto Rico’s power grid and other infrastructure wrecked by Hurricane Maria, a senior White House official told Reuters.

Under the plan, the federal government will pick up 90 percent of the costs – up from the typical level of 75 percent – and allow for funds to be released in a faster, more flexible way, an approach that recognizes the massive devastation on the island and its dire financial problems, the official said.

The plan, agreed with Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello, provides for third-party advisers to estimate how much money is required for projects and how it is spent – a provision aimed at protecting taxpayer dollars in what is expected to be a massive, long-term effort to rebuild the island.

“We’re doing it in a way that grants flexibility, but also imposes a mutually agreed upon set of controls,” the official said in an interview.

Puerto Rico is in bankruptcy, struggling with $72 billion in debt. Its finances were put under federal control last year.

Six weeks after Hurricane Maria hit, only about 30 percent of Puerto Rico’s power grid has been restored.

Palmer Report: Jared Kushner cooperating with Robert Mueller on Donald Trump criminal conspiracy charges 

1 Share

Now we know why Donald Trump let it leak to the media earlier this week that he blames his son-in-law Jared Kushner for giving him the advice to fire FBI Director James Comey. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has targeted Kushner with regard to Comey’s firing, which was a criminal conspiracy to obstruct justice – and now it turns out Kushner is cooperating with Mueller.

Trump had his allies leak to Vanity Fair earlier this week that it was Kushner’s idea to fire Comey in the hope of sabotaging the Trump-Russia investigation. Now CNN is reporting that Kushner is cooperating with Mueller by voluntarily turning over all documents relating to that firing (link). That same report says that Mueller has been questioning other witnesses about Kushner’s role in the firing. It’s not difficult to piece together what’s going on here with Mueller’s approach.

Mueller is building a criminal conspiracy to obstruct justice case against Jared Kushner, and he’s made sure Kushner knows it. Accordingly, Kushner is now cooperating with Mueller, in a rather obvious attempt at saving himself. Kushner is giving up evidence that will help incriminate Donald Trump on obstruction of justice for the firing of Comey. Thus Trump is suddenly trying to blame the Comey firing solely on Kushner, in an attempt at shifting the criminal culpability off himself.

This does not necessarily mean that Jared Kushner has formally cut a deal. He may simply be informally cooperating with Robert Mueller in the hope of avoiding criminal charges. It may also explain why Kushner hasn’t yet been indicted or arrested, as many political pundits have been expecting. However, this doesn’t mean that Kushner won’t ultimately be arrested. In any case it definitely means that Kushner has begun selling out Donald Trump to Robert Mueller, in an effort to save himself.

‘Nonchalant’ suspect arrested after Colorado Walmart triple-slaying

1 Share

THORNTON, Colo. (Reuters) – Police in Colorado on Thursday captured a man who they had said calmly walked into a suburban Denver Walmart and fatally shot three people at random before driving away.

Scott Ostrem, 47, was taken into custody without incident a day after the shooting following a tip from the public, the Thornton Police Department said.

Police said they have yet to establish a motive for the rampage and that Ostrem had only “a minimal criminal history.”

Video broadcast from CBS affiliate KCNC-TV showed the suspect being handcuffed by police against the side of an SUV as FBI agents carrying rifles and wearing body armor looked on.

KCNC-TV said police SWAT team officers had ringed his last known address in suburban Adams County on Thursday morning when Ostrem drove past and was spotted. He was followed by law enforcement and journalists, KCNC-TV reported, and was arrested in the nearby suburb of Westminster after a “quick pursuit.”

Police had earlier released a surveillance camera photograph of a middle-aged white man wearing a black jacket and blue jeans. They also published a photo of the red four-door Mitsubishi hatchback he was believed to have fled in.

Ostrem “nonchalantly” entered the store in Thornton, about 10 miles (16 km) northeast of downtown Denver, and opened fire on shoppers and employees shortly after 6 p.m. (8 p.m. EDT) on Wednesday, police spokesman Victor Avila told reporters.

Two men were killed in the shooting and a woman who was shot was taken to a hospital where she died, according to police. No one else was wounded.

“What we have determined is that it is random as of right now,” Avila told reporters. “As witnesses stated, the person came in and just shot towards a group.”

The Walmart had been quickly surrounded by police and fire crews. Authorities initially said “multiple parties” had been injured. Avila said there was no indication the shooting was an act of terrorism and no one had claimed responsibility.

“We can’t rule anything out,” he said.

Ostrem is due to appear on Friday morning in Adams County District Court, where he will be advised on what charges he is being held, a court spokeswoman said.

Walmart customer Aaron Stephens, 44, of Thornton told Reuters he was buying groceries at a self-checkout stand when he heard gunshots and ricocheting bullets.

“The employees started screaming and the customers started screaming” as people began to flee, he said. “I ran out, too, because I didn’t want to get shot.”

NBC television affiliate 9NEWS reported a woman whose son was in the Walmart said he heard about 30 gunshots.

Early accounts of multiple casualties had revived painful memories for the Denver area, where a gunman killed 12 people in 2012 at a midnight screening of the Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises” at a theater in the suburb of Aurora. The shooter, James Holmes, is serving a dozen consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole.

In 1999 two 12th-graders fatally shot 12 fellow students and a teacher at Columbine High School in suburban Jefferson County. The pair, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, then committed suicide in the campus library.

THORNTON, Colo. (AP) — The Latest on the shooting at a Colorado Walmart (all times local):

Authorities have identified the three people who were fatally shot at a Walmart in suburban Denver.

Coroner Monica Broncucia-Jordan said Thursday that 52-year-old Pamela Marques, 66-year-old Carlos Moreno, and 26-year-old Victor Vasquez died in Wednesday night’s shooting.

Moreno was a grandfather who was a longtime maintenance worker at the Auraria Higher Education Center. It houses various state colleges and universities in downtown Denver.

The Latest: 3 victims of Walmart shooting identified

Spokesman Blaine Nickerson says he was well-known and respected on campus.

____

11:15 a.m.

Neighbors of the man suspected of fatally shooting three people at a suburban Denver Walmart say he was unfriendly and occasionally hostile toward them.

Gerald Burnett says he was sitting on the stairs drinking coffee one morning at his garden-style apartment building in Thornton when Scott Ostrem came down the outdoor stairway. He says Ostrem told him to move and cursed at him.

Teresa Muniz (MUHN’-is) says Ostrem never returned her greetings and once or twice swore at people for sitting in the stairways or leaving laundry in communal machines.

She says she sometimes saw him carrying a bow and set of arrows or a shotgun into or out of his apartment.

She says most people in the building know one another but she never even knew Ostrem’s name until now.

_____

10:40 a.m.

Police say a man suspected of fatally shooting three people inside a Colorado Walmart has a minor criminal record.

Thornton police spokesman Victor Avila said Thursday that 47-year-old Scott Ostrem had a minor criminal history, but Avila didn’t elaborate.

Court records show a resisting arrest charge against Ostrem was dismissed in 1999.

Court records also show Ostrem filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2015.

Ostrem was arrested Thursday, about 14 hours after the shooting inside a Walmart in the Denver suburb of Thornton.

Two men died inside the Walmart, and a woman died later at a hospital.

A motive for the shooting was unknown.

___

9:45 a.m.

Police say a man suspected of fatally shooting three people inside a suburban Denver Walmart tried to flee officers in his car but was blocked by traffic.

Thornton police spokesman Victor Avila said Thursday that 47-year-old Scott Ostrem was arrested without incident after a brief chase that started near an apartment about 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the Walmart store.

Avila says police went to the apartment and didn’t find Ostrem. But they got an anonymous tip that he was driving in the area and spotted him.

Police took Ostrem into custody after his car was blocked by traffic at an intersection. Avila declined to say if Ostrem was armed.

He says a motive for the shooting is unknown.

Two men died inside the Walmart, which is about 10 miles (16 kilometers) north of Denver in a busy shopping center. A woman died later at a hospital.

Russia Facebook Ad Army of JesusAn ad from a Russia-linked account on Facebook run during the 2016 presidential election.US House Intelligence Committee

Congress released some of the Facebook ads linked to Russian operatives in the run-up to last year’s presidential election, and they reveal a concerted effort to divide the US and vilify Hillary Clinton.

The ads targeted different cross-sections of the US population and often citizens at opposite sides of the political spectrum.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, released the trove on Wednesday before a hearing with Facebook, Google, and Twitter.

“Whether the Russians and Trump coordinated these efforts, we do not yet know, but it is true that the Russians mounted what could be described as an independent expenditure campaign on Trump’s behalf,” Schiff said.

“The Russians did so by weaving together fake accounts, pages, and communities to push politicized content and videos, and to mobilize real Americans to sign online petitions and join rallies and protests,” Schiff said.

Some of the ads portrayed Clinton as an ally of Satan, promoted a US burqa ban, and hailed Trump as the “one and only who can defend the police from terrorists.”

Take a look at the divisive ads below.

A suggestion to like the “Woke Blacks” Facebook page was shown to people interested in “African-American culture” and the civil rights movement.

US House Intelligence Committee

It was seen more than 750,000 times, the Wall Street Journal reported.

This post, centered on Sanders’ criticism of the Clinton Foundation, was targeted at people who liked the “Bernie Sanders” Facebook page.

US House Intelligence Committee

“The Clinton Foundation is nothing more than an ‘organized crime’ at it’s [sic] finest, in which we are investing our taxpayers’ money,” the rest of the ad went.

“So why are so many people going to vote for her? That’s a secret for me. What’s your opinion on that point?”

U.S. authorities identify six Russian officials in DNC hack: WSJ

1 Share

November 2, 2017 / 8:29 AM / Updated 4 hours ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department has gathered enough evidence to charge six members of the Russian government in the hacking of Democratic National Committee computers before the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the investigation.

Federal agents and prosecutors in Washington, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and San Francisco have been cooperating on the DNC investigation and prosecutors could bring the case to court next year, it said.

By identifying individual Russian military and intelligence hackers with charges, U.S. authorities could make it difficult for them to travel, but arrests and jailing would be unlikely, according to the Journal report.

The hacking investigation, conducted by cybersecurity experts, predates the appointment in May of federal special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee the probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion with President Donald Trump’s campaign.

Mueller and the Justice Department agreed to allow the technical cyber investigation to continue under the original team of agents and prosecutors, the Journal said.

U.S. intelligence agencies have said Russian intelligence agencies were behind those cyber attacks, which resulted in thousands of emails and other documents being made public by WikiLeaks last year. The intelligence community concluded in January that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the campaign to sway the election in Trump’s favor.

Russia has denied it meddled in the election and Trump has denied that his campaign colluded with the Russian government.

If the case is brought by federal prosecutors, it would pinpoint the specific Russian military and intelligence hackers behind the attack on the DNC and the emails of John Podesta, who was campaign chairman for Trump’s Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

It would be the second time the United States charged Russians with cyber crimes. In March, the Justice Department charged two Russian intelligence agents and two hackers with masterminding the 2014 theft of 500 million Yahoo accounts.
