Brussels, Den of Spies — Why are there no reported cases of Havana Syndrome in Brussels? [UPDATE — 4 US diplomats hit by ‘Havana Syndrome’ in Geneva and Paris]

“Being an American spy or diplomat posted abroad during an era when aggressively resurgent rival powers are rewriting the rules of international politics and diplomacy requires entering into a new matrix of uncertainty. Meanwhile, people are suffering and they’ve so far received about as much compensation as explanation. While the former may soon change, we can expect the latter to remain the same until science – and some stellar detective work – shines a light where currently there is none.”

Jonathan Terra — Political scientist and former diplomat (November 2021)

December 1 2021 — According to recent reports, spies flock to Brussels like bees to a honeypot. This raises an obvious question. Why are there no reported cases of Havana Syndrome in Brussels? Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

On This Day — Zola : “J’accuse…!” (January 13 1898) [Nobel Prize Nomination]

“The Dreyfus affair was not only the first modern Counter-Intelligence case, but it was also the first modern Counter-Intelligence  disaster — that is, not just an investigative and legal error, but one that spilled over from the intelligence world into the sphere of mass politics, with consequences for culture and society as well.”

John Ehmman — The Lessons for Counter-Intelligence of the Dreyfus Affair (CIA Website)

January 13 2021 — “J’Accuse…!” was an open letter published on January 13 1898 in the newspaper L’Aurore by the influential writer Émile Zola. In the letter, Zola addressed President of France Félix Faure and accused the government of anti-Semitism and the unlawful jailing of Alfred Dreyfus, a French Army General Staff officer who was sentenced to lifelong penal servitude for espionage. As a result of the popularity of the letter, even in the English-speaking world, J’accuse! has become a common generic expression of outrage and accusation against someone powerful.  Follow us on twitter: @Intel_Today

On This Day — US Surgeon General Report Links Tobacco and Cancer (January 11 1964) [Disinformation : Why does it work?]

“Global cigarette use seems to have peaked at about 6 trillion cigarettes sometime after the turn of the new millennium, but the deadly effects of this epidemic will still be felt for decades — even if global use continues to decline. Only about 100 million people died from smoking in the 20th century, whereas several times that are likely to die in the present century, even if current rates of smoking fall dramatically.”

Robert N. Proctor — History Department, Stanford University

January 11 2021 — On January 11 1964, a U.S. surgeon general’s report unequivocally linked tobacco products and lung cancer. Although scientists had established the link two decades earlier, the cigarette lobby worked hard to first dismiss and later downplay the evidence.

In 2019, scientists at the National Toxicology Program have discovered and reported clear evidence linking cellphone to cancer. Today, the Telecom Industry is pulling all the same old tricks the Tobacco lobby invented more than half a century ago. How long will it take for governments to act responsibly?

“I cannot rule out that Libya, in some way, is responsible for the ‘La Belle Disco’ bombing. But I must say that such hasty blame regarding Rome and Vienna, for which Libya had immediately been made responsible, did not prove to be correct.”

On This Day — French Captain Alfred Dreyfus Is Convicted of Treason (January 5 1895) [Politicization of Intelligence]

“Officers new to counterintelligence and overwhelmed by the scope of what they need to learn often ask the same question: ‘Where do I start?’ The best place might be the Dreyfus affair.”

The Lessons for Counter-Intelligence of the Dreyfus Affair — CIA Website

Alfred Dreyfus (January 9, 1859 — July 12, 1935)

January 5 2022 — On January 5 1895, Dreyfus was summarily convicted in a secret court-martial, publicly stripped of his army rank, and sentenced to life imprisonment on Devil’s Island in French Guiana.

5G Belgium — Chaos Across the Spectrum [UPDATE — Top US phone firms agree delay and no deployment around airports]

EU Agency for Railways

May 31 2019 — Belgium’s telecoms regulator, the Belgian Institute for Post and Telecommunications (BIPT), has begun a public consultation to assess interest in using the 26GHz band for 5G services.
