    Three days after award-winning US journalist Barrett Brown was thrown back “in the hole,” the federal government has yet to provide an infraction sheet detailing his offense.

    The US Marshals Service took Brown into custody last week after a routine visit with his case managers. The Bureau of Prisons "technically holds sway over my life until May 25th when my sentence officially ends," Brown told Sputnik in a statement on Sunday morning.
    "After 72 hours, I still have received nothing," he said. "Contrary to BOP policy, and indeed federal law, I was not provided a written infraction report, much less given the disciplinary hearing that normally precedes punishment."
    Of course, detainment without explaining the reasons behind Brown’s re-arrest begs the question of whether the BOP is using exclusive authority to silence a political opponent. Brown has been a critic of the BOP and the US federal government in recent years, and has reported on Washington’s efforts to conduct shady surveillance operations on US citizens via third-party private contractors.
    Attorney Jay Leiderman told Sputnik on Friday the Barrett Brown Rule is unfolding before our very eyes: that is, the government can use nifty legal tactics to silence and arrest individuals they personally don’t like.
    But this is precisely why the US Bill of Rights was included in the US Constitution: To prevent the government from infringing upon the most basic, inalienable rights. In addition to the current attempts to silence Brown — he was detained one day before he was slated to do an interview with PBS — the BOP’s current tactics violate due process protections enumerated in the 5th and 14th Constitutional amendments.

      US filmmaker Oliver Stone commented on his new film about Russian President Vladimir Putin in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald.

      The release date of the movie, which is based on interviews with the Russian leader, has not yet been announced. The documentary is supposed to show Putin's attitude to the global events that have transpired since he first became Russian president in 2000.
      "It's not a documentary as much as a question and answer session," Stone told the Australian newspaper. "Mr. Putin is one of the most important leaders in the world and insofar as the United States has declared him an enemy — a great enemy — I think it's very important we hear what he has to say."
      According to Stone, the film crew met with the Russian President four times over the last two years to receive comments on major global events. With their movie, Stone and his team seek to demonstrate another, alternative point of view, help Western countries to understand Moscow's position and prevent a dangerous situation on the brink of war.
      Documentary about Edward Snowden
      Stone is well known for his critical documentaries on political topics. He made movies about President Richard Nixon, John Kennedy and George W. Bush. The last work of the three-time Oscar winner was a film about the former US intelligence agent Edward Snowden, which was released in 2016.
      The picture narrates the story of a former employee of the US National Security Agency, Snowden, who in 2013 handed over secret materials about surveillance programs of US and British intelligence agencies to The Washington Post and The Guardian.
      "Ukraine on Fire"
      Stone also captured on camera the events that took place in Ukraine over the last couple of decades. His movie "Ukraine on Fire" tells the history of Ukraine in the period from 1941 to 2014. At the same time, the film focuses on nationalist movements that existed during the Second World War and participated along with the Nazis in the massacres of Jews and Poles.
      In his movie, Stone also covered the events that took placed during the Maidan protests. In particular, he interviewed former President Yanukovych about the economic difficulties Ukraine had to face, his relations with Russia and his motivation behind the decision to leave the country.
      In summer 2016, "Ukraine on fire" received an award for best documentary film at a film festival in Taormina, Sicilia.

      Réseau Voltaire -- EU Support for a Muslim Brotherhood Militia in Sudan

      EU Support for a Muslim Brotherhood Militia in Sudan

      The US NGO, Enough, has published a report, Border Control from Hell, How the EU’s migration partnership legitimizes Sudan’s "militia state", challenging the EU policy on Sudan.
      The NGO believes that the Union is subsidizing the establishment of two detention camps in Sudan as well as fitting out and training security forces to limit the influx of African migrants into Europe. Yet, the principal beneficiaries are the Rapid Support Forces (“RSF”). The latter were established by former soldiers of the Janjawid militias that played a leading role in the fighting in Darfur.
      Enough was particularly influential in the Congo and Sudan and was established by members of the US National Security Council around John Prendergast (Special Adviser to the Security Adviser, Susan Rice) and Gayle Smith (Director of USAID).
      Sudan is governed by the Muslim Brotherhood’s local branch following the coup d’Etat organized by General Omar el-Bechir in 1989. While officially an enemy of the West, Sudan is, in actual fact, supported by them. From 1992 to 1996, Sudan welcomed a team from the CIA, a member of which was Osama Bin Laden (this was when Bin Laden was organizing, on Nato’s behalf, the “Arab Legion” in Bosnia-Herzegovina). General el-Bechir was accused of crimes against humanity during the war of Darfur, and the International Criminal Court issued an international warrant for his arrest in 2008. That said, his freedom of movement has not been restricted. The Sudanese militia have provided numerous jihadists for the “Arab Spring” in Libya and Syria.
      75% of Sudan’s national budget is allocated to Defence and Security whereas only 25% is allocated to the sum total of civil activities.

      MISOC: The U.S. Military’s Secret Brand of Fake News

      MISOC: The U.S. Military’s Secret Brand of Fake News

      April 28, 2017 at 5:03 pm
      (ANTIMEDIA Op-EdPSYOP/MISOC targets foreign governments, groups, and individuals. The government program is similar to journalism, a mode of communication that spreads information, but often spins the narrative, according to Colonel Curtis D. Boyd, Chief of Staff of the JFK Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg, who gave a lecture on “The MISTRY* of PSYOP: Putting MISO in Perspective” in 2011.
      The mission of the Military Information Support Operations Command (MISOC) is to influence enemy, neutral, and friendly nations and forces into holding favorable opinions and/or taking complementary actions regarding ongoing operations by the United States and its allies.
      We're revolutionizing the news industry, but we need your help! Click here to get started.
      Senior ranking U.S. military leaders have so distorted the truth when communicating with the U.S. Congress and American people in regards to conditions on the ground in Afghanistan that the truth has become unrecognizable, ” Lt. Col. Daniel Davis told Democracy Now! in 2012.
      Before his death, Michael Hastings was one of the first to obtain Lt. Col. Davis’s 84-page report and published it in Rolling Stone magazine.
      In February 2012, Hastings was quoted in regard to the report:
      I think it’s one of the most significant documents that we’ve seen from an active-duty Army officer in terms of how they view the war in Afghanistan, even the war in Iraq. You can look at this as a significant document about the last 10 years of conflict in America. And it’s not so much as what Colonel Davis is saying, though that’s very important, too. It’s the fact that you have a 17-year Army veteran, who’s done four tours—two in Afghanistan and two in Iraq—who has decided to risk his entire career—because he has two-and-a-half more years left before he gets a pension—because he feels that he has a moral obligation to do so.”
      MISO manipulates their targets into distributing information using logic, fear, desire, and other mental factors to trigger desired emotions, attitudes, or behaviors. It is vital for MISO communicators to fully comprehend how the target population acts, thinks, and communicates.
      In 2010, the unpopular Psychological Operations field was rebranded as Military Information Support and Operations. PSYOP = MISO. The unit, which currently operates under U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC), is comprised of less than 3,000 members. MISO activities are built upon the idea that human will is shaped by information, beliefs, and perceptions.
      While speaking to Business Insider about the enactment of the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, Lt. Col. Daniel Davis described MISOC’s overall objective of influencing target audiences to hold favorable opinions of the U.S. and its allies by using modes of communication similar to journalism:
      In context, Colonel Leap is implying we ought to change the law to enable Public Affairs officers to influence American public opinion when they deem it necessary to ‘protect a key friendly center of gravity, to wit US national will.’”
