Lots of red faces regarding Cambridge Analyticia / SCL
the company who
Apparently the MOD in the UK paid them 190,000 for psychological profiling and modelling
regarding public responses to government propaganda messaging.
They even gave them "List X" status with access to secret government documents!!

Also, apparently the government of Kiev in Ukraine hired them for strategy
in their attempts to bring Donesk under their control.

And now it appears that the US government and NATO are also using them for the same psychological warfare stuff
in it's attempts to bully Russia
Meanwhile, the US State Department has a contract for $500,000 with SLC. According to an official, this was to provide “research and analytical support in connection with our mission to counter terrorist propaganda and disinformation overseas.” This was not the only work that SCL has been contracted for with the US government, the source added.
In May 2015, SCL Defense, another subsidiary of the umbrella organisation, received $1 million (CAD) to support NATO operations in Eastern Europe targeting Russia.
The company delivered a three-month course in Riga which taught “advanced counter-propaganda techniques designed to help member states assess and counter Russia’s propaganda in Eastern Europe”.
The NATO website said the “revolutionary” training would “help Ukrainians better defend themselves against the Russian threat”.
What is clear is that all of SCL’s activities were inextricably linked to its Cambridge Analytica arm.
Here is the anti trump "incompetence" spin that the Hillary crew have tried to put on this whole fuckup:
