The Integrity Initiative and the UK's Scandalous Information War | MintPress - Dec. 18, 2018 |

"Inside the temple of covert propaganda"

According to David Miller, professor of political sociology in the school of policy studies at the University of Bristol and a member of the Organization for Propaganda Studies, the Integrity Initiative "appears to be a military-directed push."

"The most senior government people are professional propagandists and spooks," Miller explained. "The `charity' lead on this [Chris Donnelly] was also appointed as a colonel in military intelligence at the beginning of the project -- a truly amazing fact that suggests this is a military intelligence cut out."

A minister for the UK FCO has officially confirmed that it has been funding the Integrity Network.

In addition to conducting diplomacy, the FCO oversees both the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) the UK equivalent to the National Security Agency, and the Secret Intelligence Services (SIS) commonly known as MI6.

The think tank that oversees the Integrity Initiative, the Institute for Statecraft, has also received funding from the British Army and Ministry of Defense.
