Is it real? Is it an illusion? Does it matter?
Is it real? Is it an illusion? Does it matter?
If it walks like a duck, looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and denies it's a duck -- it's probably Vladimir Putin's duck.
For the past eight months, the world has been subjected to a blitzkrieg of disinformation, distortions, and outright lies from Kremlin officials and the Russian media.
It's been a wild ride. It's been a baffling reinvention of reality. And its been a mass hallucination. No sooner is one Kremlin myth, lie, or distortion debunked than a dozen more pop up in its place.
But there's a method to this madness. And it happens to be one of the strongest weapons in the Russian arsenal.
On the latest Power Vertical Podcast, we discuss Russia's weaponization of information and its implications.
Joining me are co-host Mark Galeotti, a professor at New York University, an expert on Russia's security services, and author of the blog "In Moscow's Shadows." Mark and I are joined by two authors of a recent report on Russia's information warfare: Peter Pomarantsev, author of the book "Nothing Is True And Everything Is Possible," and Michael Weiss, editor in chief of the online magazine "The Interpreter."

Thalidomide: how men who blighted lives of thousands evaded justice

Newly exposed files show how victims were betrayed by political interference in trial and how the pill has remained on sale
The dark shadow of thalidomide is still with us. The original catastrophe maimed 20,000 babies and killed 80,000: it remains the greatest manmade global disaster. Now evidence has been uncovered that the pharmaceutical outrage it is nothing less was compounded by a judicial scandal that has suppurated all these years.
It is exposed in a large number of documents discovered in the state archives of North Rhine-Westphalia by a researcher for the UK Thalidomide Trust. The papers, which have been examined and authenticated by the international law firm of Ince & Co, speak to political interference that violated the constitutional division of power between the legislative, the executive and the judiciary. And more than half a century since the pills threat to an embryo was proven, the company that produced the first disaster has continued to sell the drug in parts of Latin America, on prescription only, where babies continued to be born with malformations similar to the survivors from the 1960s.

President’s Immigration Plan Presents a Challenge to Republican Leaders

1 Share
WASHINGTON — President Obama’s looming action on immigration is poised to become the first, real opportunity for the new Republican leadership in Congress to demonstrate that they can avoid the pitfalls of opposing the president’s policies and unite around a governing agenda of their own.
By insisting that he will take unilateral action to overhaul the nation’s immigration system, Mr. Obama has delivered his adversaries a compelling political target. In Asia, Mr. Obama effectively said “I told you so” to Republicans, saying he had given them every opportunity to avoid the action he was about to take.
“I indicated to Speaker Boehner several months ago that if Congress failed to act, I would use all lawful authority that I possess,” Mr. Obama said at a news conference in Myanmar. “That’s going to happen. And that’s going to happen before the end of the year.”
Administration officials said the president would shield from deportation up to five million people living illegally in the United States and provide many of them with work permits. The president also plans to refocus the activities of the nation’s 12,000 immigration agents on deportations for convicted criminals and people who have recently crossed the border illegally.
Republicans, who next year will control both chambers of Congress, have seized on the prospect of what they have called Mr. Obama’s “executive amnesty.” They are warning the president and his Democratic allies that such action could trigger lawsuits, legislative gridlock on other issues and even the threat of another budget stalemate and government shutdown.
House Speaker John A. Boehner and Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who will become the majority leader next year, have joined the chorus of outrage from some of their most conservative members. Mr. Boehner left open the possibility this week that House Republicans might shut down the government in a standoff on the immigration issue.
“The president is playing with fire here, and when you play with fire, you get burned,” Mr. Boehner told Republican leaders in a closed session on Thursday, according to a person in the room. “We don’t know when exactly he’ll do it or how exactly he’ll do it. But if he proceeds, we are going to fight it.”
But first impressions matter, and many Republican strategists worry about political damage if the party’s first action on Capitol Hill is a protracted budget battle that leads to a shutdown — much as occurred after the shutdown over Mr. Obama’s health care law in 2013.
For his part, Mr. McConnell has repeatedly insisted that the Republican Party has no intention of shutting down the government, and has vowed after Republican victories in the midterm elections that his party could get things done in Washington.
“This gridlock and dysfunction can be ended,” Mr. McConnell said in a news conference on Nov. 5.
But ending gridlock could be more difficult in an environment where Republicans are focused on what they consider to be another example of the president’s executive overreach.
Republicans believe their best option to block the president’s immigration actions is an upcoming spending bill, which must pass by Dec. 11 in order to fund the government through the next year. In the Senate, three Republicans — Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah and Jeff Sessions of Alabama — have taken the lead in urging their colleagues to oppose any spending bill unless it includes provisions to stop the president from acting on immigration.
“Our office stands ready to use any procedural means available to make sure the president can’t enact his illegal executive amnesty,” Catherine Frazier, a spokeswoman for Mr. Cruz, said.
In addition, Representative Matt Salmon, Republican of Arizona, sent a letter with 63 signatures Thursday to the chairman and the ranking member of the House Appropriations Committee, urging them not to send any spending bill to the Senate that does not include “language that would prohibit funding for the president’s reported intentions to create work permits and green cards for undocumented immigrants currently in the United States.”
But the dynamics of such a move are complicated. Representative Harold Rogers of Kentucky, the chairman of the Appropriations Committee, has made it clear that while he opposes any executive action on immigration, he is hesitant to include such language in his must-pass spending bill, as it could lead to a government shutdown.
Others in the party are less hesitant. Some House Republicans have previously said they considered impeachment proceedings a viable option if Mr. Obama moves forward with his executive actions.
“The audacity of this president to think he can completely destroy the rule of law with the stroke of a pen is unfathomable to me,” Representative Steve King, an Iowa Republican who is an outspoken opponent of an immigration overhaul, said in a statement Thursday. “It is unconstitutional, it is cynical, and it violates the will of the American people. Our republic will not stand if we tolerate a president who is set upon the complete destruction of the rule of law.”

Why ISIS Can Survive Without Baghdadi 

1 Share
Amidst speculation that U.S.-led airstrikes had last week killed or injured Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), the group released an audio message on Thursday from Baghdadi himself where he called on his supporters to “erupt volcanoes of jihad”, saying ISIS would “never abandon fighting”, adding: “they will be triumphant, even if only one man of them is left.” While Baghdadi apparently was not killed in last week’s raid on the Iraqi city of Mosul, the rumors nonetheless raised the question: can ISIS survive and thrive without its mysterious frontman?
“Baghdadi is more like a CEO than a traditional battlefield leader,” says Justin Dargin, a Middle East scholar at the University of Oxford. Unlike the late al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, Baghdadi does not present himself as a charismatic, messianic leader to his followers. A November report from security intelligence firm The SoufanGroup agrees, saying Baghdadi “has not needed to be a visionary or a natural leader, just strong enough to impose his will more effectively than anyone else.”
Nicknamed “the invisible sheikh” by his followers, Baghdadi has been careful to reveal very little about himself, aside from a few videos released by ISIS, and even reportedly wears a mask when addressing ISIS fighters. Experts say this is partially a response to what happened to other leaders who were hunted down once their secret locations were discovered, including his predecessor Jordanian Islamist Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, who was killed in a U.S. bombing raid in 2006. Baghdadireportedly went to Afghanistan in the late 1990s with Zarqawi, who went on to found al-Qaeda in Iraq, the group that would eventually become ISIS.
As a member of Zarqawi’s terrorist group, Baghdadi was picked up and detained for five years by the U.S. in Camp Bucca in Iraq in 2004, where many al-Qaeda commanders were jailed. “”Prison sentences are opportunities for these people to meld ideologies, to develop friendships, to develop trust,” says Lauren Squires, research analyst at the Institute for the Study of War in Washington D.C. “Camp Bucca is where [Baghdadi] actually met a lot of his closest cohorts that are in ISIS now,”
Once a somewhat peripheral figure, Baghdadi has now become ISIS’s leading man, playing an instrumental part in gathering support for the militant group as it established its self-proclaimed caliphate in June. “He became a very public face to this organization that was rapidly growing,” says Squires, referring to Baghdadi’s notorious appearance in a video leading prayer at a mosque in Mosul in July. “So he was important in unifying and developing this group to get it off the ground.”
Baghdadi also claims to be a direct descendant of the Prophet Mohammed, naming himself “Caliph Ibrahim” in July, ruler of the Islamic State caliphate which gives him further legitimacy among the organization’s followers.
But Paul Rogers, professor of Peace Studies at the University of Bradford in the U.K., points out that while Baghdadi is very important, ISIS “is an organization that is both adaptive and robust.” Squires agrees, saying that the old Western strategy of cutting off the head of a snake no longer applies, because of how resilient ISIS has proven to be. Data from IHS Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Center suggests that the U.S.-led coalition has failed to slow down the number of ISIS attacks, and body counts are higher than ever before. In Baghdadi’s recent audio message he claimed that “America and its allies are terrified, weak, and powerless.”
That resilience comes from the fact that the core leadership of ISIS is primarily made up of professionals who were elite members of Saddam Hussein’s Baathist government in Iraq. That gives the group a clear command and control structure, says Dargin.
Unlike al-Qaeda’s affiliate-based system, which operates through more independent cells in different parts of the world, ISIS is located in a tighter geographical area and has a more government-like, bureaucratic structure. That includes two major military and administrative bodies: the Shura Council and the Sharia Council. “What’s different [from al-Qaeda] is that the structure falls underneath one central command,” says Squires.
This leads her to believe that the most effective way to degrade a terrorist organization like ISIS “is by hitting the mid-level to senior-level leadership” repeatedly, in order to remove that echelon and ensure the group will not be able to reconstitute its leadership—rather than focusing solely on Baghdadi.
Researchers tell TIME that it’s very difficult to identify who would be the next viable successor in the event of Baghdadi’s death, but that they are certain ISIS has contingency plans and that it would only be a temporary setback for the group, especially in practical terms. “It is extremely important to remember that ISIS considers itself a “state,” and while it is not a state such as is recognizable anywhere else in the world, it would not allow itself to collapse because of the death of one leader,” says Dargin.
The death of Baghdadi could also feed into the religious beliefs of ISIS followers who extol martyrdom. Indeed, Squires believes his death may even increase “the global jihadi incentive to join and conduct retaliatory attacks.”
Of course, if Baghdadi is killed, many within ISIS and outside it may see his death as a strategic blow against the terrorist organization—and a successful attack would surely be trumpeted by the U.S. But as the group continues to increase its stronghold in Iraq and Syria, it seems that ISIS will remain a threat to the region for quite some time—with or without Baghdadi.
