Russian Intelligence is Behind the Snowden Show: German Intelligence

mindweapon:

Active Measures (Russian: Активные мероприятия) was a form of political warfare conducted by the Soviet security services (Cheka, OGPU, NKVD, KGB) to influence the course of world events, “in addition to collecting intelligence and producing politically correct assessment of it”.[1] Active measures ranged “from media manipulations to special actions involving various degrees of violence”. They were used both abroad and domestically. They included disinformation, propaganda, counterfeiting official documents, assassinations, and political repression, such as penetration in churches, and persecution of political dissidents.[1]

Active measures included the establishment and support of international front organizations (e.g. the World Peace Council); foreign communist, socialist and opposition parties; wars of national liberation in the Third World; and underground, revolutionary, insurgency, criminal, and terrorist groups.[1] The intelligence agencies of Eastern Bloc states also contributed to the program, providing operatives and intelligence for assassinations and other types of covert operations.[1]

Retired KGB Maj. Gen. Oleg Kalugin described active measures as “the heart and soul of Soviet intelligence”: “Not intelligence collection, but subversion: active measures to weaken the West, to drive wedges in the Western community alliances of all sorts, particularly NATO, to sow discord among allies, to weaken the United States in the eyes of the people of Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and thus to prepare ground in case the war really occurs.”[2]

Active measures was a system of special courses taught in the Andropov Institute of KGB situated at SVR headquarters in Yasenevo, near Moscow. The head of “active measures department” was Yuri Modin, former controller of the Cambridge Five spy ring.[1]

As I’ve noted at length already, the drama surrounding the continuing leaks of classified information from the U.S. National Security Agency, care of the defector Edward Snowden, has now taken center stage in Germany. Which is not altogether surprising because Germany is such a close partner with the United States in security and other matters, and also because a significant component of the Wikileaks apparat lives in Berlin.

To anyone versed in counterintelligence, specifically the modus operandi of Russian security services, the Snowden Operation* is a classic case of Active Measures, in other words a secret propaganda job. That its ultimate objective is fracturing the Western security and intelligence alliance is made increasing clear in the tone of the reporting coming from the Operation, especially its German mouthpiece, the newsmagazine Der Spiegel. Relying on fronts, cut-outs, “independent” journalists, plus platoons of what Lenin memorably termed Useful Idiots…

    German intelligence also sided with Russia in exposing the sarin gas false flag operation in Syria, thereby, undermining Obama’s planned attack on Syria. All MSM in America is pretty much propaganda, these days.

  2. Wally says:

    Why wouldn’t Russia seek to use the Snowden affair to undermine the goal of the American Likud Party to encircle Russia with anti-ballistic missiles able disarm/destroy Mother Russia’s defences?

      Wally,

      I suspect Russia is on a crash revitalization of their military, akin to the 1930’s rapid industrialization. Interesting that the German BND is helping Russia against America. Who knows what goes on in the minds of German secret agents. Perhaps some non-YKW friendly thoughts and plans, eh?

      • Adit says:

        Don’t forget about the reunification. ‘Former’ East Germany has significant say in what goes on in Germany (think Merkel for one), much to the chagrin of ‘former’ West Europeans. If I recall correctly, during the Cold War West German intelligence was highly ‘infiltrated’ by East German Intelligence. How much was really infiltration and how much was simple co-operation with their fellow Germans is anyone’s guess. Germany is still technically an occupied country (there was no official peace treaty signed at war’s end) so I’m guessing there might be some definite schadenfreude if America gets its ass kicked around a bit. I’ve always wondered how much of the East German Intelligence apparatus was folded into the reunited Germany. Don’t forget that East Germany was one of the largest surveillance states on the planet under the communists, so co-operation with the Russians is not really unexpected.

      • mindweapon says:

        Yep, the old DDR secret service never went away idea. Maybe. There’s a fiction book by Ostrovsky called “The Lion of Judah” with a surprise ending that involves East German intelligence.

    • Razvan says:

      How is a defensive system (ABM’s) crippling someone’s else defense? I’m afraid I can not deem ICBMs as defensive systems, nor the ability to invade others as defense. After Russia invaded all it’s neighbors for hundreds of years it sounds like chutzpah.

      This led to the rise of the American imperialism in this region. Who would be the fool to want foreign boots in his country without a strong motive?

      Invading is not defense, war is not peace, imperialism is not nationalism, and of course the jews are still jews be them in America or in Russia, and surely the devil is still hiding behind details (especially those we don’t want to see).

      My sincerest opinion is that YKW is still winning both ways, one big YKW way.

    Another active measure you could take. If the USA becomes more anti-White than Mexico, learn Nahuatl/Mixtec/Maya and become cheap labor…

    HEY MW – I READ OSTROVSKYS BOOK “BY WAY OF DECEPTION” – A FASCINATING AND CREEPY READ ABOUT HOW THE SAYAHIM PLAY THEIR HOST COUNTRYS LIKE THE DUMB, GOODNATURED BITCHES THAT THEY ARE – IS “LION OF JUDAH” IN THE SAME VEIN?

  5. MOISHE NOT says:

    ON THE SAME NOTE – THE STASI WERE RUN BY A MEMBER OF THE TRIBE WHO NOW ADVISES THE GERMAN FEDERAL INTELLIGENCE SERVICE AS WE SPEAK.
