The Guardian is reporting that "A team of Israeli contractors who claim to have manipulated more than 30 elections around the world using hacking, sabotage and automated disinformation on social media has been exposed in a new investigation."
"The unit is run by Tal Hanan, a 50-year-old former Israeli special forces operative who now works privately using the pseudonym “Jorge”, and appears to have been working under the radar in elections in various countries for more than two decades."
Haaretz is reporting that "While it took less than a year for French authorities to investigate the case and file indictments, the Israel Police did nothing about Hanan's chaos factory, which is still operating – even though he was documented allegedly committing criminal offenses from his office on Israeli soil." SHFTV reported the story. I didn't see it on Rebel News or the Daily Wire.
"A non-human bot by the name of @Canaelan has been found to have links to numerous fake social media profiles, all controlled by disinformation-spreading software owned by Team Jorge and based out of Israel. According to the investigation, the software known as Advanced Impact Media Solutions (AIMS) controls over 30,000 fake social media profiles all of which can be used to spread disinformation or propaganda far and wide at extraordinary speed."
The Times of Israel is reporting that "The bombshell revelation was the result of an investigative report by an international consortium of some 30 news outlets, including Israel’s Haaretz and The Marker, along with Forbidden Stories, a French nonprofit that aims to continue the work of assassinated, threatened or imprisoned journalists."
"Hanan described his teammates as experts in finance, social media, campaigns and psychological warfare, saying they were graduates of government agencies.”
