Disinformation and Democracy (Part I) | People and Power

For democracies to flourish and succeed, voters need accurate information on which to base their decisions; to weigh up the relative merits of proposed policy A over proposed policy B, to judge whether this candidate is more trustworthy or reliable than that one, or that these promises are more likely to be kept than those.

But recent elections, most notably that of Donald Trump as US President,…

Putin strikes back as US Pentagon says there has been 2,000% increase in Russia trolls in 24 hours –

The US Pentagon says there has been a 2,000% rise in the number of Russian trolls active since air strikes in Syria.Officials claim Russia is actively trying to create confusion about the attacks on three chemical weapons targets.It follows warnings of cyber attacks in the aftermath of the strike, carried out by US, French and British forces.Military chiefs have already rubbished claims by Russia and Syria that scores of missiles were shot down.Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said: “The Russian disinformation campaign has already begun.There has been a 2,000 percent increase in Russian trolls in the last 24 hours.The prime target of the operation was the Barza Research and Development Center in the greater Damascus area.Marine Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie, director of the Joint Staff, described it as "one of the most heavily defended aerospace areas in the world”.He said Russian air defenses did not fire, while Syrian air defenses were completely ineffective against an attack from multiple directions involving not just U.S.,British and French aircraft but also U.S.naval destroyers, a cruiser and French frigate and even a U.S.submarine.The Syrian air defenses not only missed the incoming missiles but they kept firing even after the last U.S.,British and French strikes were complete.Some of those more than 40 Syrian missile interceptors, he suggested, might have hit civilian targets.Barza took the brunt of the fire, with 57 Tomahawk cruise missiles and 19 Joint Air to Surface Stand-off missiles.Though some of Syria’s chemical weapons infrastructure was still left, “I think we’ve dealt them a severe blow,” McKenzie said, adding it would set the program back for years.Despite severely damaging the infrastructure with the strikes, McKenzie said the Pentagon would not rule out that the Assad government still had capability to use such weapons again.“There’s still a residual element of the Syrian program that’s out there,” he said.“I’m not going to say that they’re going to be unable to continue to conduct a chemical attack in the future.I suspect, however, they’ll think long and hard about it.” The operation has been hailed as a success.French Defence Minister Florence Parly said some of the strikes had targeted two sites used by Bashar al-Assad’s regime to store and assemble chemical weapons near the Syrian city of Homs.“The mission is a success.The goals had been carefully chosen and I observe that there are no incidents to reportbetween our forces and other forces active in the region,” Parly told a news conference. source

Facebook’s New Verifying System

Facebook, which landed itself in the crosshairs after becoming one of the primary venues by which federal prosecutors allege a Kremlin-linked, pro-Donald Trump Russian operation called the Internet Research Agency tried to flood the US with disinformation and propaganda before the 2016 elections, now says it will verify the identities of people who buy election-related ads by mailing postcards.
