ODNI: Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections
Background to “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections”: The Analytic Process and Cyber Incident Attribution – 6 January 2017
Background to “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections”: The Analytic Process and Cyber Incident Attribution “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections” is a declassified version of a highly classified assessment that has been provided to the President and to recipients approved by the President. The Intelligence Community rarely can publicly reveal the full extent of its knowledge or the precise bases for its assessments, as the release of such information would reveal sensitive sources or methods and imperil the ability to collect critical foreign intelligence in the future. Thus, while the conclusions in the report are all reflected in the classified assessment, the declassified report does not and cannot include the full supporting information, including specific intelligence and sources and methods.

He also argued that, while military judges are capable of evaluating in a closed session what classified evidence can be brought to court, if it is too dangerous to show the evidence to an al Qaida accused the Pentagon should not be allowed to prosecute using it.
Sen. Arlen Specter: Isn’t there some problem — would there be a problem in showing an al Qaida defendant, for example, classified information under those terms?
MacDonald: Yes, sir, there would. And I think that the answer may be that in that instance you would have to give up the prosecution of that particular charge.
Specter: So you’d say it wouldn’t be a matter of proceeding without informing the defendant so that he would not be denied the confrontation, but you’d have to drop the charge?
MacDonald: Yes, sir.

After EoP Intnl Law Social Contract: EoP Intnl Law National Security Definition Draft: Planetary security and hence National security is defined as ‘the necessity of individuals, families and nation states to unconditionally co-operate to (A) protect the Ecology of Peace international law social contract so as to (i) sustainably protect and conserve natural resources in accordance to local and national carrying capacity limits and (ii) restrict national and international inter-cultural resource war conflict; by (B) requiring their citizens to (a) monitor other individuals, tribes, or nation’s procreation and consumption behaviours to verify they are breeding and/or consuming below ecological carrying capacity limits; (b) report breeding and/or consumption cheater individual, family or national scarcity combatant violators to appropriate local or international authorities; and (c) eliminate convicted breeding and/or consumption scarcity combatant cheaters from the planetary genepool.
