Foreign, New Disinformation Bureau to Fight US ‘Public Opinion’

Director of National Intelligence Avril Haynes announced Thursday that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) has created a new disinformation agency, the Foreign Malignant Impact Center (FMIC).

Furthermore, according to reports, intercept According to Air Force Reserve Intelligence Officer Major Neil Perry, the creation of the FMIC is “puzzling” because it mimics the purpose of the GEC.

GEC has already developed an assessment of influence operations that includes a team of 30 data scientists who monitor the public information environment and share their analysis with the Department of State and interagency partners. ”
