    Default [LEAK] Op. HMG Trojan Horse: From Integrity Initiative To Covert Ops Around The Globe

    Released by Anonymous this September (2020) a trove of documents that implicate the UK FCO (Foreign & Commonwealth Office) - and by further implication, intelligence services - in covert and clandestine regime change efforts in Syria and around the world.

    Description:
    First in a series of upcoming publications that will expose interference of Her Majesty's Government in internal affairs of various countries around the world.

    Part 1: Taming Syria - 1

    Source: https://freenet.space/read-blog/275_...globe-par.html

    Contents overview:
    Only small particles of information about covert operations of British intelligence in Syria have leaked into the Media until today. Well, here and now we reveal a detailed map of their presence in that country since 2011. We have everything: from criminal programmes and tenders to bidders' complete proposals.

    Programmes and Projects
    • SYRIA CSSF: SUPPORT TO MODERATE ARMED OPPOSITION (MAO) PROGRAMME -
      MAO BORDER FORCE CAPABILITY PROJECT (B-FOR)

      The delivery of a tailored package of training, equipment, and other forms of support (i.e. weapons) that provided coherent modularised capability/ies for the southern MAO border groups. The project provided direct train and equip assistance for up to six hundred (600) MAO personnel per twelve month period.

      Project implementation, including the provision of training and material support, commenced on 01 August 2016. The project covered a period until 31 March 2019 with a clause for a breakpoint at the end of each financial year to allow HMG to manage the availability of funds on an annual basis.
    • MAO MEDICAL CAPABILITY PROJECT (CASEVAC) - The aim was to provide MAO with a casualty evacuation capability and chain of care from point of injury to rear treatment facilities which was regularly identified as an assistance priority for the MAO in the south. The project provided direct train and equip assistance for up to two hundred (200) MAO personnel per twelve month period.

      Project implementation, including the provision of training and material support, commenced on 01 August 2016. The project covered a period until 31 March 2019 with a clause for a breakpoint at the end of each financial year to allow HMG to manage the availability of funds on an annual basis.
    • ACCESS TO JUSTICE AND COMMUNITY SECURITY (AJACS) IN SYRIA - The programme aimed to develop an alternate policing and security model in Syria. In the immediate term, it was supposed to enhance the legitimacy of, and support for, the moderate armed opposition. HMG implemented AJACS in collaboration with other governments, including Denmark, the Netherlands, the United States, and other donors. Applicants were expected to manage this programming from Turkey and/or Jordan.

      Project implementation commenced in 2014 and was based on a 1yr + 1 yr basis.
    • CONFLICT, STABILITY AND SECURITY FUND (CSSF): SYRIA PEACE BUILDING - The programme sought to identify and support local civil society groups and activists. Implementers had to provide mentoring to civil society actors and organisations, through peer to peer support and/or remote mentoring. They also had to support coordination between existing civil society networks and formal political institutions. One of the key requirements to a bidder was to have existing good relationships with major Syrian civil society organisations, ideally including relationships with existing regional and national networks.

      The initial contract was for 8 months, beginning early August 2017 and ending in March 2018.
    • SYRIA MODERATE OPPOSITION RESILIENCE (MOR) STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS PROJECT - This work was commissioned by the Syria Conflict Stability and Security Fund (Syria CSSF) and had to be delivered through the selection, training, support and communications mentoring of Syrian activists who abided by a set of values that were consistent with UK policy. A partnership was required, between the UK (delivered through an implementing partner) and the selected Syrians. All media content had to be Syrian-developed and Syrian-delivered.

    The rest of the Taming Syria leak series will follow in due course.

    Musing here, but IF Biden (or Harris) assume the presidency in the weeks to come it'll be of great interest to see if there is an escalation in activity in Syria.

    Related: although not specifically referencing these leaks the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media routinely update their own work and I await a possible summary from them in the near future.

    Their work, as mentioned elsewhere before on the forum, can be viewed here.

    Programmes and Projects
    • SYRIA - STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS, RESEARCH, MONITORING EVALUATION (ME), OPERATIONAL SUPPORT -

      Bidders had to be able to deliver HMG funded programmes in three areas:

      1. Strategic communications: managing communications influence campaigns in or in relation to conflict affected states, engaging target audiences: in country at the grassroots level, nationally, regionally, and internationally. Capacity building of local independent media platforms, with activist groups, local councils and civil society organisations. Mentoring, training and coaching for enhanced delivery of media services, including digital and social media, etc.

      2. Research, and monitoring and evaluation: programmatic monitoring and evaluation services including information gathering to profile, create baselines as well as to assist in the generation of measures of effect and indicators for impact assessment, etc.

      3. Operational support: quickly hire and mobilise expert staff internationally, and locally in the region from a range of thematic backgrounds and functional areas, that were well versed in operating in the region and in conflict affected contexts. Provide a range of services to develop the capacity and credibility of a nascent political institution or transitional authority. This included but wasn't limited to provision of experts, mentors, instructors, training teams, equipment, technical services, legal assistance, and capacity substitution, etc.

      The project commenced in 2014.
    • SUPPORT TO GRASSROOTS MEDIA ACTIVISM (SYRIA)
      The project's aim was to select, train, support and mentor Syrian oppositionist media activists who abided by a set of values that were consistent with UK policy. A partnership was required, between the UK (delivered through a commercial implementing partner) and the selected Syrians. The project needed to establish and support a network Syrians operating both from outside and inside Syria with the necessary skills and equipment.

      The implementer assumed responsibility for the project from 1 Jan 15 for a period of 15 Months to the end of FY 15/16.
    • STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS AND MEDIA OPERATIONS SUPPORT TO THE SYRIAN MODERATE ARMED OPPOSITION (MAO)
      The purpose of the project was to contribute to an effective and credible Syrian MAO through StratCom and Media Operations capacity building; as part of the achievement of wider HMG intent. This took the form of centrally coordinated support to the Revolutionary Forces Syria (RFS), at the operational and tactical levels, with the capability to expand back into the strategic space, to help build an effective opposition political-military interface and to make MAO broadly accepted as the alternative to the Assad regime.

      The project started on January 1, 2015 and ended on March 31, 2016.
    • (STRATCOM) SUPPORT TO THE MAO (SUPREME MILITARY COUNCIL (SMC) AND WIDER FREE SYRIAN ARMY (FSA))
      The project aimed at enhancing the reputation of the SMC/FSA and improving FSA discipline thereby degrading the Assad regime narrative through effective STRATCOM.

      Project started in October 2013 and lasted until March 2014.

    Took a quick look and can't find any reporting in the UK on this.

    Could it be subject to a 'D' notice?

    Any one individual working for any of the successful contractors detailed in these data would have already put their signature to the OSA (Official Secrets Act 1989) statement and likely have agreed and be signatory to any relevant NDA; I'll need to drill a bit further through the information to see if the requirement documentation makes any mention of that, but, it's an inevitability.

    Regarding DSMA notices: it has to be a high possibility that journalists, quite a few of whom are likely already on the intelligence services payroll, (or receiving a stipend) especially in the mainstream (sic) won't publish anything, but, yes, at the time of writing I haven't yet seen any independent coverage, but there may be some working on that.

    Two names immediately spring to mind that may if they haven't already been or are on the case might be Eva Bartlett and/or Vanessa Beeley.

    It seems UK are up to their necks in this and lot's more. Playing the Great Game long after they'd supposedly left Empire behind.

    I wonder if there's a reckoning coming for my hubristic nation? If the US factional war goes in favour of Trump the UK could find itself in a tight spot.

    For sure The US was (is) a British construct that is notionally independent, but the truth is that it's never been entirely free. I caught wind earlier that MI6 appears to have colluded in the Italian interference - I'll need to dig a little further into that allegation, but, it would not surprise me in the least if that was the case.

    "Due to the pervasiveness of corruption and foreign influence or interference in Lebanese politics the people saw very little potential for social or political change. That's why HMG programming designed to tackle these grievances would likely have broader effects."
    OP. HMG Trojan Horse. Part 2: Infiltrating Lebanon I

    Link: https://freenet.space/read-blog/615_...lebanon-i.html

    The linked page contains a comprehensive summary of the documents referenced and links to each. It is too long to post in its entirety here.

    For those interested I would strongly recommend investing some time reading some of them, if not all. The modus operandi is consistent with the previous Syria releases as would be expected.

    _______________________

    Overview from Anonymous:

    In our previous publication we exposed HGM's interference in the 2011 rebellion of the Syrian people against Assad regime. British government officials virtually took the process under control and when the rebellion turned into civil war they sided with the jihadists. They nurtured those allegedly independent civil society organisations, mentored activists and created networks of allegedly independent Media. They trained, equipped and armed the 'rebels'. They created the image of valorous opposition fighters. They tried to overthrow the secular Syrian Government and transfer authority to radical Islamists to achieve their political goals.

    But you must have got tired of the news about the war in Syria that has been going on for almost ten years. Yet you need to realise that the primary target of HMG operation during the war was you and not the Syrian people who were well aware of the side the western intelligence services took in the conflict. It was you who the Mainstream Media tried to mislead about the evil dictator and the good guys from the White Helmets. Multiple terrorist attacks in European countries clearly show that the jihadists never stop being jihadists, although agencies like ARK acting on behalf of HMG try to soften their image while the Mainstream Media tell you they are nothing but freedom fighters.

    This time we are going to show you a pure HMG Trojan Horse operation and expose the British Empire that has deceived an independent country stuck in a difficult economic and political situation by offering it assistance only to colonize and establish protectorate over it.

    Beware! Britain offers help to your country!

    We declare war on the British neocolonialism! We call on all independent Media from around the world to join our effort and expose criminal activity of the UK's FCO and secret services. It is particularly important because HMG and The Global Strategy Network that we previously exposed fear that their files on Syria may fall into the hands of independent journalists who will investigate their criminal activity:



    Well, dear readers! Just a few of you, except some highly focused specialists, know much about a small Middle Eastern country called Lebanon. Although some of you may have heard from the Mainstream Media that during 2020 peaceful protesters have been engaged in direct democracy on the streets of Beirut by burning down cars and demanding the overthrow of their government.

    However, we have some FCO files proving that control over Lebanon is a strategic advantage for the UK. And this is the very reason why another Middle Eastern secular regime that can ensure peaceful co-existence of Christians, Sunnis and Shiites must be overthrown to enable London achieve its imperial goals.

    You will see for yourselves how HMG offered help to the Lebanese authorities only to later deceive them into admitting British spies into their governmental and civil society institutions, special services, armed forces and Mass Media, allowing those spies to work with the youth and the CSOs. And it was far too late when the Lebanese realised they had lost control over their own country

    More documents detailing UK operations in the middle east: https://www.moonofalabama.org/2021/0...-services.html

    It seems as if these aren't classified and it then becomes a case of how you view attempts to 'influence' what's happening in the region? Are these selfless actions of a former colonial power seeking to try and ease tensions in the region? Or is it something else? The answer may depend on where you're viewing this from...

    Very timely Thanks.

    Serendipity at play here as I've just popped into the forum after having just downloaded the remainder of these files and seen your post

    They'll go into the library for tomorrow now I expect.

    Part 4 - Undermining Russia



    More comprehensive analysis and document provision from Anonymous, published in early February, detailing the continuing efforts of the British Intelligence services in their quest for psychological operational meddling and disruption of nation states.

    The chosen cut-outs in these scenarios include Thomson Reuters Foundation, the omnipresent Albany, the 'charity' The British Council, ZINC Network and no less an entity than BBC Media Action - see Part II, below.

From my current location the link directs to a login only wall - the additional telegra.ph link bypasses that but you'll need to scroll down a bit to see the content. A reminder that a pdf of the original page from Anonymous for all 4 parts here can be found in the Library - use links below
    ALL nearly 200 files saved here in the Avalon Library

    ZIP files for all 4 series so far covered in this thread are also available on the Operation Trojan Horse library directory landing page.

    Great work Tintin on archiving this. Here, have a you've surely earned it!

    So what are we seeing here? I think it's the age old art of empire building, but translated into the terminology of liberal capitalism. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, in this case woolly and ill defined western values are the apparent motivation. The method is a toxic mixture of public and private NGO, which seems to be the preferred modus operandi for the modern empire builder. Don't occupy a country with precious military forces which will incur rebellions and revolutions. Own it through a network of operatives and keep your hand on the destabilisation lever in case it ever gets out of control?

    Journeyman: Thankyou

    I'd say that you've largely summed that up pretty well. I wondered back in 2016 why there seemed to be a sudden surge, or perceptible increase, in MI5 and MI6 recruitment drives. One does now wonder whether the ramping up of these kinds of civilian espionage and infiltration operations were the focus here. We know of course that they do go on all the time.

    It's interesting to note some of the end dates for these contracts and programmes, which haven't completed yet.
