How gloriously wondrous

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.

He is being unmasked by an international consortium of journalists. Hanan and his unit, which uses the codename “Team Jorge”, have been exposed by undercover footage and documents leaked to the Guardian.

Hanan did not respond to detailed questions about Team Jorge’s activities and methods but said: “I deny any wrongdoing.”

The Guardian thinks this guy is a dodgy character. He gives them his sales spiel. The Guardian believes the sales spiel of the person they already think of as a dodgy character.

The Guardian really has no clue about how markets work, does it?

  1. This seems to me to be much the same as any other propaganda or advertising campaign.

    Though I’m sure what I’d consider to be fake news would be somewhat different to the views of the Guardian reporters.

  2. I doubt the CIA, the FBI, or the EU need any help from the Israelis. And in any event, their elections are more meaningful than ours.

  3. Should you need any reassurance as to the accuracy of the reporting in this article, please note that author number 4 (of 5) is a Ms Carole Cadwalladr, a name which seems to ring a bell…..


  4. I think we’ll find that The Guardian believes Tal Hanan to have been single-handedly responsible for Brexit, working through his half-brother, Daniel.
