From A Closer Look On Syria
Jump to: navigation, search


Contractors hired by the Foreign Office but overseen by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) produce videos, photos, military reports, radio broadcasts, print products and social media posts branded with the logos of fighting groups, and effectively run a press office for opposition fighters. [...] Through its Conflict and Stability Fund the government is spending £2.4m on private contractors working from Istanbul to deliver “strategic communications and media operations support to the Syrian moderate armed opposition”. [...] The contract to support the moderate armed opposition was briefly held by Regester Larkin, an international communications consultancy, where it was headed up by a former lieutenant colonel in the British army who had also worked as a strategic communications specialist at the MoD. He set up a company called Innovative Communications & Strategies, or InCoStrat, which took over the contract from November 2014, a Regester Larkin spokeswoman told the Guardian. An InCoStrat spokesman confirmed: “InCoStrat is providing media and communication support to the moderate Syrian opposition to assist Syrians to better convey the reality of war and those involved in it.” Both emphasised the close supervision of the work by the British government. An insider also described “tremendous oversight”, with handlers from the FCO and MoD meeting contractors up to three times a week. “They had the last say in everything,” the source said.

    For example, it exploits demotion of Ivanov from Russ. Pres. Admin Head to an environmental tzar (while remaining security council member), to portray Ivanon as opposing (nonexistent) conspiracy. However Ivanov demotion has nothing to do with Trump; + Ivanov was clearly happy with the arrangement; + Vaino, who got the job, is Ivanov protege. Role of Peskov is just laughable, he is not much more than a talking head with mustaches and cannot be someone driving anything --Resup (talk) 13:25, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
