An in-depth investigation by independent journalists Michael ShellenbergerMatt Taibbi, and Alex Gutentag has revealed that the CIA orchestrated a substantial operation to control social media content during the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly targeting then-Twitter (now X). This revelation is part of the latest Twitter Files drop, showing the CIA’s attempts to manage social media narratives from 2021 to 2022.

The report indicates that a member of the Board of Trustees at InQTel, the CIA’s venture capital firm, collaborated with former intelligence community (IC) and CIA analysts to manipulate Twitter’s content. The goal was to maintain control over the COVID-19 narrative under the pretense of combating “misinformation” and so-called “foreign propaganda.”

According to “thousands of pages of Twitter Files and documents,” the CIA aimed to micromanage content on Twitter. This involved a cohort of government-linked individuals and organizations taking extensive measures to control free speech, citing national security concerns.

Among the notable figures involved were:

  1. A longtime IC contractor and senior official at the Department of Defense (DoD): Known for developing technologies to detect whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks leakers.
  2. Nina Jankowicz: The proposed head of the now-dissolved Disinformation Governance Board at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). She assisted U.S. military and NATO operations in Europe.
  3. Former FBI General Counsel Jim Baker: Instrumental in the Russiagate hoax and, while Deputy General Counsel at Twitter, played a role in censoring the New York Post story about Hunter Biden.

Related reports have highlighted the CIA’s partnerships with the World Economic Forum (WEF) and other deep state entities to exert influence over mainstream media.

Additionally, domain host GoDaddyAmazon Web Services (AWS), and PayPal were implicated in collaborating to de-platform and financially undermine individuals and organizations considered threats to the IC’s global control and censorship operations. This coordination represents a significant escalation in using corporate cooperation for censorship under the guise of national security, as explained by Zero Hedge.

Jankowicz, nicknamed “Scary Poppins,” continues to promote online speech restrictions, advocating for a “cross-platform,” public-private approach to regulating online discourse. She suggests that the U.S. should emulate European models like Germany’s NetzDG law, which imposes heavy fines on social media companies failing to remove illegal content promptly.

Jankowicz has also had extensive involvement in advising the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry and overseeing programs at the National Democratic Institute, focusing on regulating speech and free expression.

The investigation into Alethea Group, a firm employing former CIA and FBI analysts, reveals its role in targeting independent media, including Zero Hedge, for allegedly spreading panic during events like the Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) collapse. Alethea received significant financing from Google Ventures and has been involved in various efforts to control narratives around key events.

Former CIA analyst Cindy Otis, also linked to Alethea, praised notorious hacker Pieter “Mudge” Zatko, who was hired by Twitter to address misinformation. Zatko, who later became a whistleblower, revealed Twitter’s negligence in protecting user data and misleading the government.

Alethea’s deep ties to U.S. intelligence and its involvement in disinformation operations highlight the intricate web of efforts to control social media narratives. The revelations from the Twitter Files underscore the ongoing struggle between free speech and government-led censorship in the digital age.
