Trump Ally Tom Barrack Charged With Acting as UAE Agent

"Another. Close trump associate arrested and charged with crimes of corruption. And his name is tom. Barrack is a billionaire businessman. He is accused of illegally lobbying. Donald trump on behalf of the united arab emirates prosecutors in the eastern district york today. Unsealing a huge seven count. Forty six page. Indictment go through it. We've got a reporter. Who's reporting on this. But this is a very important development a bunch of reasons not the least of which because when we last met here at this desk last night we were talking about the fate of the rule of law in the air of donald trump and particularly in the period where the justice department changed hands from attorney general in bar and then the final days of the trump administration. The lackey jeff rosen to joe. Biden's new attorney. General merrick garland last night. Here on this program. We were critical of the fact that justice department had according to reporting declined to prosecute trump's secretary of commerce wilbur. Ross that was according to reporting from both the associated press and government executive. Now that decision not to prosecute a came after the commerce department's own inspector general found at loss had lied to congress about a citizenship question that he wanted to add to the twenty twenty cents. We have an important update to that story. The government executive have both issued corrections. Clarifying that in fact it was the trump justice department that made the decision not to prosecute. Ross not the biden administration which is of course a very very big difference

Look In The Mirror - The Importance of Measuring and Tracking Everything

"Little bit today about holding the mirror up to yourself a little bit and and creating something predictable for yourself and what we mean by. That is the conversation between peer. Nice started on the idea tracking and measuring. We're both big tracking and measuring people. And so when i say tracking. Let's put some definition on that. Peter so like when i say tracking measure. What does that mean to. You means image picking out some key metrics or versus say keeping different key metrics in your lifetime. That you'd wanna move. You wanna move the needle forward you want proven you want to become better at and and making sure that those metrics are the are the right metrics significant metrics that metrics that. If you move them forward you're going to see huge results in your life. So you know putting this mirror in front of ourselves on a regular basis is a great way to see where we're at and then measure it to where we wanna go. I'm really curious. Who has a really tough time kind of tracking and measuring goals or things that you feel are important to you but just who has a tough time with that. Yeah like a lot of people. Yeah me too. I have those issues to uae portland. Peter why is it important to track and measure. And i think i wanna throw context on this. Because we're going to dive into track and measure doesn't i'm not just talking about like your data For or your commissioning. I'm talking like track and measure. And and i know that sounds a little robotic for some people. They hear that near like a like you know. I'm not one of those people. But but why is it court. What makes it important. What makes it important for you. Peter where you don't track you don't track and measure things. What happens well. I mean i've i've done both ways. Dave in you know the ultimate not tracking and measuring is taking your bills and throwing them in the drawer not paying attention to your health. You know saying that you know. I just work hard. And whatever comes my way comes my way not measuring your business metrics and just basically taking a putting your head in the sand kind of a philosophy not balancing your checkbook not looking at your taxes not thinking about you know these things that that trillion gonna come by by bite you in the but if you don't pay attention and they will show up

Why It Takes About 2 Weeks for a COVID Vaccine To Be Effective

"So one thing about vaccines that i at least feel like isn't being super. Well publicized the need to wait for two weeks after your last shot before you can consider yourself fully vaccinated. This goes for any of the vaccines you may be getting. So if it's a single shot. Like johnson and johnson you're fully vaccinated two weeks after that single shot. And if it's two shots like madeira or pfizer your fully vaccinated two weeks after your second shots. That is the official word from the cdc here in the us and is supported by infectious disease. Experts blunt uae. Exactly mark cameron and immunologist at case western reserve university who is instrumental in containing sars in two thousand three explains it's like vaccines are giving our immune system to do list which then needs time to complete. What's on the list. Quoting mashal one. Our immune system will gradually recognize the spike protein produced by the vaccine as an intruder to in response to recognizing this foreign spike protein. The body's immune cells will cooperate to start producing protective proteins called antibodies to protect you against the virus. If you're infected these antibodies bind to the spike proteins of the virus. Making it difficult or impossible for the virus to bind and gain access to ourselves and went inside the virus wheeler machinery to mass multiply. It's ineffective parasites. It's around the two week. Mark that the immune system is producing. Antibodies levels that block infections said cameron and quotes

S6 E8 - Life: TBD

"This is the we served now. What podcast and if you're anything like me you've had a ton of questions. After leaving the military in the lack of answers has left you frustrated in probably more than a little confused. This show is here to help you make sense of what can sometimes be craziness that is your life after the military. See you can turn your post military life into your best life. Now when i was working on this show. I thought you know. I don't even know what this next. Show season six episode. Eight is going to be about so in the show. Topic is making my notes. I just put to be determined. Dvd to be determined. And i thought you know what that is a perfect title or or maybe more appropriately. I think it's a good topic especially right now as it feels like we are nearing the end of this year. Long over a year now global pandemic that is covid nineteen and the truth is it's it feels like our lives have been in a to be determined status for that entire time right so you can't go anywhere you can't really get out of the house much. Could there's not a lot to do now if you like the outdoors. Maybe this was the perfect time for you to do that. but you wanna go shopping. You want to go out to dinner somewhere. We'll sorry you can't because everything is closed so our lives of felt like we're in a to be determined status but you know pandemic aside. Maybe you're wondering some more practical things you know. Maybe you're wondering if you ever be happy or if you ever get married or if you'll ever have kids or maybe you're wondering if the tonight is in your ears. Whatever shut up. I know i wonder sometimes. Or if you're ptsd symptoms will ever subside. I'm willing to bet that you felt an and maybe you're feeling right now that your life is on hold it. It's all in this kind of this murky to be determined status so my question to you is this. How will you know when your life is no longer on. Hold in this episode. I'm gonna share six elements of forward progress with you and buckle up. Because they're not easy. But i can assure you they are worth it. So by way of introduction mining aaron perkins. I'm a us army combat veteran also hosted. This podcast. I've been focusing on the veteran community. You basically ever. Since i got out you know i should be more honest with that right for a very long time after i got out on myself and focused on figuring out what my next steps were what my forward progress looked like once. I finally kind of got a handle on what my own life was looking like or what. It should look like what i wanted it to look like. I thought you know what. I can't keep this to myself. This is not something that i can say. Okay well i figured it out. All my other veteran brothers and sisters can just figure it out for themselves. So i wrote a book called resolve. That is a step by step guide. That takes you through the process of rediscovering purpose after the military but that aside today i want to talk about something really specific and and and a lot of the elements of the book. Come into to today's show. But i want to talk about those six elements afford progress with you. So look no matter where you're at you can live your best life. No matter what phase your life is in your best days are ahead of you and that and that's a key element and it leads right into this first piece. I want to talk about. Get your mind right. And i know you've heard so much about it. No doubt about mindset and how important your mindset is and how much it matters this. Honestly the most important aspect. Because if you don't get your mind right you are setting yourself up for failure if you are going into any challenge. Excuse me any challenge in your life. And you haven't i said okay. Let me you visualize what i'm going to do. Maybe let me rehearse it so to speak. Let me planet out now. Let me go tackle it. If you don't do those things then you are really like. I said setting yourself up to fail but more important than all those all. Those things i just mentioned is what comes before that and that is believing that you're going to be successful. So here's the thing when it comes to mind set right. It is not just a one time event. It's not just this decision. You make to say okay. Well i'm going to be Positive in this particular in this particular regard or I am going to say okay. I'm gonna change my mindset for this one time only. I know i normally have a negative outlook and i think that nothing is going to go my way and i it seems like life is crashing in on me but this one time. I'm going to believe it's going to get better. It's going to be better. Look your mindset. it's a regular event. It's not just a one time event. Maybe it's daily. It might be several times a day. Mindset is absolutely huge and a big part of the mindset is asking the why behind your desire to move forward or more specifically than. This is where i told you some elements of the book will come in. Maybe even the why try and so in the resolve book So i put together for the book. What is called the nine line framework. It is a guide a plan for you. The veteran to step through one step at a time for rediscovering your purpose after the military and line one in this nine line framework is why. Try you know we've already had purpose. We've already done so many things for our country and for allies for families. Why try and that. And that's one of the questions you have to answer in the book. I share more about how to get to that point right but element too so i wanna get your mind right get that mindset all clicking in the right direction element to is discover your purpose and you've heard me talk about a few times you've heard me say that discovery purpose rediscover your purpose even on this show on this episode and again talk a lot about this in the book and i wrote it with the belief that you do not have to suffer through life after the military. I'm going to say that again. You do not have to just suffer through life after the military because there is life after your military service you know. Maybe it's a whole new career or a whole new hobby or new opportunities. You simply couldn't take advantage of you. Were in the military purpose. Looks different for all of us. When i'm friends he was a medic In my unit that we deployed with and he is. He's big into fishing like that's his thing now. I'm not talking like you know. He just goes allen out on the lake every now and then this guy is a competitive fishermen really really great at his skill set and he has found a renewed sense of purpose just in fishing. And you know what is he doing. They're right what is he who what does he really getting at when you look at it like well okay. Cool like he's into fishing. But what does that mean as far as you know his life moving forward or discovering his purpose. Look here's what. Here's what i can guarantee you. In his life in his his new fishing fishing centric life right. He's got a family and everything that he's taking care of but this this is one of the best things for him because he has a passion for it and in that passion he gets to live out what he is really loving about his life and so in his day to day life where he gets to talk about fishing and and go fishing and all this. He's building these relationships with people around him and he's doing so much that it is. It's so cool to see when a veteran really really discover is in uncovers who they're meant to be after the military and again purpose different for all of us. So where i find my purpose are where my old dock mimetic buddy found purpose and fishing. Yours is probably going to be the same and don't expect it to. You shouldn't expect it to look the same as anyone else's that's why again that i created the framework that you can use to discover your own sense of purpose and the next element that leads me right into this. One is forgive. Look forgiveness is one of the least talked about aspects of transitioning from the military and it is arguably the hardest i say arguably because some people never even come close to really dialing into what it is. They need to forgive. They need to forgive themselves. Do they need to forgive. You know an old battle buddy Unit commander you know those who've been victims of trauma or If they have. Ptsd from their from their combat service. You know what are the elements of their lives that they need to forgive and again you know i feel like i'm talking about the book a lot and i'll be honest i am because there's so much more in the book and this is line three it walks you right through the process of forgiveness and forgiveness is not saying you know what it doesn't hurt it's not saying it wasn't a big deal. Forgiveness is choosing your own freedom. And i think i said this on the last episode of but holding onto unforgiveness or or bitterness even is like setting yourself on fire and expecting the person you were bitter at or angry at or holding a grudge against expecting them to die from smoke inhalation so all forgiveness is as tough as it may be all it is all it breaks down to is that you are choosing your own freedom so get your mind right. Discover your purpose and forgive what you need to forgive. Forgive who you need to forgive. Maybe that's you. Maybe that's someone else helmet four. Uncover you in other words. Understand how you tick. What types of choices do you make in specific situations and one of the best tools for this is a personality assessment and yes. That's part of the book as well. That's part of the nine line. Framework is discovering your personality. Because let's be honest in the military you know. Personality is fine when you're hanging out with your friends or your battle buddies or whatever you want to call them right but when it comes to getting the mission done your personality kind of takes a backseat. It seems to knocking out the mission to getting to mission success getting to mission completion and so a big part of your post military life like who am i to figuring out what it is that you are not only passionate about. But what are you naturally geared toward and in the book. I use a tool called sixteen personalities. And you can check out at sixteen personalities dot com that's one six personalities dot com. There's also a myers briggs assessment. There's the disk assessment. Which kind of is how you function in a work environment and so uncovering who you are and the key elements of your personality are really critical to your moving forward in life that brings me to the fifth element. Make a plan. The fifth element of moving forward in your life is to make a plan. Don't just imagine a plan get one now. Look i want to say something about plans here. Right it's a whole lot easier to turn to the left or to the right if you're already moving. Have you ever set in a vehicle. You're sitting in the driver's seat and you turn the wheel all the way to the left. It's kinda hard to do or maybe you need to turn it all the way to the right. It's kind of hard to do because the tires just kind of moving on the on the on the surface there and you're like this is. This is really really difficult. But if you're moving you can turn the wheel just slightly to the left or to the right in. It's a whole lot easier. So when i talk about making a plan you don't have to have every single thing figured out before you start moving. Make general plan now. Look there are a lot of great plans out there. The resolve book has just one of those. Which i've mentioned is the nine line framework. Now let me be honest with you here. Scrawling down your plan on the back of a cocktail. Napkin is about one hundred miles ahead of someone who never writes down their plan at all. There is a fundamental shift in our brains in imagining a plan and then writing out that plan so make a plan element six get accountability. Accountability is like magic. If there is some magic element to rediscovering your purpose and to moving forward in your life. Accountability is really kind of that magic. And you really get to kind of see behind the curtain so to speak and it's kind of the inner workings of how that m- all that magic happens and accountability can compel you to do things. You would not ordinarily do so take for example of a group of friends right so every saturday you go for run with those friends and you know you have to get up at five thirty. Am and it's saturday and you really have to work today. But you're getting up at five five thirty because you're going to go for a run with these friends and it's not just about the run. It's about the fact that if you don't show up there to give you a hard time about dude where were you like. Why were you not here. This is this is ridiculous right. And they're gonna they're gonna mess with you about it and and if you're a guy that they're gonna call out your man card and be like. Hey you know like we showed up. Why didn't you and so the there's this element of like men getting up at five. Am to go run now. If you're like a big into running and you do it anyway. Maybe this story doesn't resonate with you but for most of us. It probably does so. We're supposed to be showing up to this run right and we're like okay. Well here we go. Let's go tackle this thing but Man tired. I don't know if i want to do at this morning at saturday. I've gotten up early every single day this week. I have a hard all man. I just remembered these guys are going to be there. And i had better show up. Or they're going to give me a hard time and the thing is sometimes. It's fun accountability. It's it's light hearted but sometimes it's someone pointing their finger at you and saying. Hey why aren't you doing what you need to do or challenging you to say. Hey here's the next step for you. Here is what you need to be doing in your life. Go do it so element. Six is get account ability. So let me quickly go over these one more time number one. Get your mind right. Your mindset is critical and big critical part of that is asking the uae. Or the why tri- why should i even bother element to discover your purpose. How do you do that. Well one way you can do. That is pick up a copy of the resolve book. I go through that whole process. There and that process is called the nine line framework part of that nine line. Framework is forgiveness. One of the least talked about aspects of transitioning from the military. But i think one of the most critical element for uncover. You check out a personality assessment. Again you can look in the show. Notes shared a couple of links in there and you can use sixteen personalities. Dot com myers briggs disc assessment of variety. Once you can use but uncover how you naturally tick element five. Make a plan. don't just imagine it. Don't just think it write it down if you write it on the back of a cocktail napkin. That's fine at least write it down and remember. You don't have to have everything figured out before you actually start moving. It's a whole lot easier to make adjustments if you're already moving file element here elements six. Get accountability and accountability. Is that magic simultaneously that magic and it is the secret behind everything else that happens in your life. Can you do things without accountability. Sure is it a whole lot harder absolutely because again accountability. Is this thing in our minds. Says hey someone else's relying on you to do this to be that saturday morning. Run to show up at work to be at that volunteer opportunity. You promised you would be at an an again accountability. I cannot stress enough. i wish i could. I guess technically i could shout and scream and throw things and you know you know bangel desk and things like that but really accountability is so huge and it takes a certain level of maturity. It takes a certain level of maturity for to do that. Now look we all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith. In jesus christ while i hope these elements have helped you. I hope they hope you think about not only whether you should move forward in life but what your next steps. Are you're practical next steps. Four moving forward in life. And i'm going to ask you specifically right now to go. Pick up a copy of resolve at courage to fight again dot com. Maybe you're not ready to pick up a copy of the book and if not just go follow us on social media where facebook courage to fight again. instagram same thing Twitter at courage again a.

How to Handle Negative Reviews & Comments Online

"Let's face it. Getting a negative review or common online does not feel could hook a doesn't matter how long you've been in business. Somebody saying something negative about you or your business is gonna hurt a little bit. You work hard every day on this thing you sacrifice so much. It's only natural for you to feel not so hot when somebody you know poos on what you do i want to start by saying you should not just ignore. You should do something about every negative review or comment on social sometimes. These comments are just out of frustration. Because maybe they're not getting exactly what they want for your product or service sometimes is just yet pure hate people just being mean and that's just the reality of the world and sometimes is just critical feedback that you just need to read and there's a lot of truth in it but regardless you should always respond and what i recommend when it comes to any negative review or comment is to try to move the conversation over on email whether they're a customer or potential customer get them to contact you via your support channels or you personally. Why do you want to do that. Because you can really have a one to one conversation and really have the time and the consideration to solve the problem or to help the customer out. These discussions are not to be had publicly whether on twitter or back and forth on a review site. This is like fighting with your significant other in public. It serve you or your partner. Just amplifies the anger and the resentment so get one on one get personal get on email number two by getting on email you actually have a higher chance of resolving the problem a lot faster than on social or on any other platform uae because there are certain things you can't ask publicly like account information in email and just trying to figure out what happened or what went wrong so you can mentioned this when you're applying on social usa. Hey so sorry you're experiencing this. We want to solve this. Sap please email us here so that we can have a conversation and ask you some questions securely about your account

It's like error basically But it's got a got a little kind of like haziness up the top that gets to completely cleared out the bottom but You know. I colors What's the other one is like a do. They call it an arctic green or something like that. I can't remember the name of the third color but it's kind of more similar to here. Hold on. I think i have a more similar to the oneplus. Eight pro this. I would call matt right like this is kind of like a hazy sort of not glassy reflective thing but just really disappointed by. I'm sorry i.

And i don't know that i've got this on auto focus so i'm just gonna keep right here but Basically this little branding in the camera bump which says hostile blog. I saying that right And so basically oneplus has a has a partnership with hossa blonde. The camera company. That is a highly respected. Although we should definitely point out the fact that hasselblad was also the big camera partnership that motorola had for a moto. Maude that did not actually take very good pictures. So the question was once we started hearing kind of the news about oneplus and blah. Having a partnership. Is this a branding play. Or is the cameras hardware actually amazing here which is definitely the focus. That really seems to be the focus. This time around the oneplus eight year. You may remember at least eight pro. it it did well improving upping oneplus game when it came to the camera and it looks like with the nine. They're looking to do the same thing here. I've had these phones For about a week and a half now although. I've only really used the nine pro with any regularity. I haven't like lived with the oneplus nine Camera hardware is very similar between the two. But i've i've leaned into the camera on the nine pro. I'm actually doing a comparison for hands on tack. That will go live tomorrow between shots on the eight pro and shots on the nine pro to kinda show. You did one. Plus actually upgrade here But know feel free and show some shots. Hokey stay on this one for a second because this one kind of bothers me. This is the main rear facing camera. I don't know that anyone else would notice this. Because you don't know my daughter and my wife the way i do but their heads look stretched totally noticed that actually. It looks like your daughter's flat look like cardboard out to that. This was done with main camera. This was not the winding lens. I'm used to seeing that kind of tearing that smearing on wide angle shots. But not the main and i realized what it is because this was like within. The first couple of days of having the camera was like okay. What is that if all of my main shots are going to do. This is going to bug the heck out of me and realize what it is the main lens does not have optical image stabilization. And so if you are even moving your hand the slightest when you take these shots you end up with really Erotic images and that. I see that as a big bummer. Because it actually did kind of rear. Its ugly head to me multiple times. Where i thought i was still but it wasn't quite still enough then. I looked at the shot later. I was like okay. That's just a little too blurry for my liking. The actually end up getting better shots out of the uae than you do with the main But yeah i mean. I mean considering that it's a wide right so you get that wide effect but the i just enjoy the shots from the live more than i do the main and a lot of the shots that i took those very dark outsize store. That's that's frustrating. It out the person who uses that you know it's going to distort the images. They take that they want us to. I'm sorry usa. The angle has the optical image civilization. Yeah yeah the wide has optical image stabilization to my understanding. The main does not at main absolutely does not and yeah so i got arenas on on really yellow. Yeah maybe maybe fact. Check that for me. While i walk through a few these eligible here but yeah i know for a fact. The main does not. I'm pretty pretty confident. The why does. But i could be wrong That shot that you were just looking at that. Was low light. Low light in the back yard near dr not quite dark and it was fine like lobe light performance on some of my shots were were fine. Nothing like screaming amazing. You know what i mean. you know again low light. I don't know. I feel like that could be better right by. I don't know This those two shots are interesting because one is the rear. This is the front facing and it shows you the differences in color balanced detection between the two cameras There's just i don't know like a time and time again as i'm kind of going through and taking pictures and comparing and everything it's like the images like i'm really curious to compare between the eight pro and the nine pro because i haven't actually done the side by sides yet for tomorrow's review. I'm doing that After the show actually. But i'm really interested to compare. Because like i'm kind of guessing guessing without comparing at this point that images are relatively similar between the two and if so then what is the hasselblad partnership actually mean

Frances ANSII warns of a longrunning Sandworm campaign

"French authorities specifically the information security agency. Ansi said yesterday that they determined a russian threat.

According to reuters that similar tactics techniques and procedures had been seen in use by sand worm also known as voodoo bear and operation belonging to russia's gru military intelligence service and see has also made a detailed technical report available. The attackers dropped back doors as web shells in their targets. The operation appears to have been another software supply chain attack with the attackers working their way in through century on products used for it monitoring and see didn't say how many victims there had been but the agency indicated that most of them were it service firms especially web hosting providers the similarity in targeting in approach to the so laura gate campaign in the us is obvious. Centurions customer profile is similar to that of solar wins the paris based firm lists more than six hundred customers worldwide including local and regional government agencies.

Voodoo bear of them as fancy. Bears daughter is known for going after industrial control systems especially those associated with power generation and distribution. It's most well known. Tool is the black energy malware kit.

He added that microsoft believed at least a thousand engineers were involved in mounting the attack. How microsoft arrived at that figure is unclear. And while it's probably better to read a thousand as a lot and not as a rigorously supportable quantification of the human capital. Russian intelligence applied to the task. It is in any case.

Korea's parliamentary intelligence committee told reuters that he'd been briefed on an attempt by north korean operators to breach pfizer and steal information on the company's covid nineteen vaccine development. Hey take king said that. The republic of north korea's national intelligence service briefed him on the attempted espionage and that the apparent motive was financial. Pyongyang is looking more to its criminal.

An inaccurate allegations that date back many years. It draws far-fetched conclusions that once again. Don't withstand scrutiny. In fact the national security agency told bloomberg again last month that it stands by its two thousand eighteen comments and the agency said a bloomberg's new claims that it cannot confirm that this incident or the subsequent response actions described ever occurred despite bloomberg's allegations about supposed cyber or national security investigations that date back more than ten years super micro has never been contacted by the us government or by any of our partners or customers about these alleged investigations and quote to round out the familiar four of bad girl.

They can see a day when that's no longer going to be true. And in order to survive as a nation and thrive they need to turn themselves from commodities based economy into a manufacturing center that is highly In the fields of science and technology and precision electronics to do that.

Revision Host Maurice Cherry Interviews Danny Shaw, Director of Digital Design and Branding at Brandshare

"All right. Let's get to the interview this week. I'm talking with danny shaw design educator located in new york city. Let's start the show all right so tell us who you are and what you do all right. Thanks for having me. I'm danny shaw. I'm a design educator. Most of the time also product manager when need to be a project manager as well and at the co- at the end of the day. I'm still a designer multi multi-disciplined design of course across the digital space. Okay how has twenty twenty one been for you so far. Twenty twenty one i mean. What are we with thirteen days. Then will far personally has been fine. You know but just looking at the world around me. You would be hard pressed to say that right but personally has been fine so far. So i'm grateful for that How was last year. I know you know the pandemic really kind of turned everyone's world upside down to some sort away. How did you get the year. Last year was a lot. I think a lot of people was ally of me personally. A lot of personal relationships it greatly impacted things for instance my grandparents who visit my grandparents all the time multiple times throughout the eddie live atlanta. I have not been able to see them. And that's really been a tough pill to swallow on person aside and not being able to see other relatives so that's definitely been hard but then which is probably roundabout way on the professional side. It's it's been probably one of the most busiest of hat professionally. A lot of business in the landscape changes so fast rapidly where the digital acceleration accelerated even more than the pace that it was already at which impacted my inbox in my email. People me up for advice and counsel and job. So it's been a mixed bag is definitely been a mix. Let's focus on work for a minute here. You're the director of digital design and strategy for a company called brand share. What does brands share. Do all right. So shit is e commerce marketing company in for a lot of people who may not be familiar with that concept and idea. We work with a lot of. Cpg burns consumer packaged goods such as emmons but if a lot of the packaging goods that we see on a regular basis as consumers so we work with these companies in regards to the marketing strategy. Introducing them to the market gaining insights and data on these new products that's being introduced to the market and we partner with them on their strategy and execution and how the scale they are offering to the audience at large in a nutshell. It comes across multiple channels digital in person shipping. We do a lot of experts. You things as well so Touch on a lot of areas with these brands trying to get as far as being the partner between the brands and these new products. That's trying to the market. In services and reaching that specific audience that the china targeting reach for their respective products. How did you first get started there at the time. I was transitioning from a position that i was working. At in north carolina as product manager and at the time there was some organizational changes. And i was looking in north carolina and and doing that and just going back and forth between new york and chronic to get my fares in order and iran ran to the person who became my manager So we just ran into each other. We used to work in the past at time. inca essence. She just told me she was working there. She was she just started. She was trying to build a team. She was looking for some freelance designers and asked me if i would be open to discuss it and i i'm open to discussing. I was just transitioned from the last role and said hey you know this might be something of interest for me. While i'm transitioning to china figure out the next and then it just happened to work out. Well we worked well together. I've worked with the rest of the team. And i'm working on the designs and floor the digital initiatives and then it just kind of kept going from there into full-time role and then may stand with the company and so forth. What does the team. Makeup look like autumn. Agean you've got designers because you mentioned design but do you work with so i work with everybody. We work with everybody. So i have Outside of me to other designers on my team i work with the vp of marketing. A record the bp digital. We're we're not. We're about fifty. I'll not that big. So we're about fifty person staff based in new york and of pennsylvania so i pretty much everybody to chairman of the company as well That the president. It really depends on the project. What's what needs to be done. You get to intimate environment. So i kind of get to work with everybody account managers and so forth as well now given that the company sizes is so small like what's a typical daylight now because i would imagine you all are not able to get together in an in an office or you now while the pennsylvania offices so they are all the way the to set up a lot of the new york office we are. We're all remote right to be clear. And we were based in midtown manhattan midtown manhattan but The pa office depending on the circumstances on what might be needed. Maybe like a photo shoot or something like that. Some members still going to office but for the most part is still pretty much remote as well. So yeah but a typical day. Nowadays is really. Just you know looking at Obviously out calendar in the before just trying to coordinate on the bear. Risk projects and initiatives looking at tickets. You know gotta look at these tickets to see what's to was the status of status meetings just to kind of make sure that we're on track with a lot of things calls a foul benders looking at roadmap. There's a lot of. I would say a lot of time. Put was president planning a lot more so than in the past so so to speak. It really varies. I really wouldn't even know what to say. What did with low but my on a log. I'm pretty much aware of what my day is already gonna look like just because i leave when i log out. I just see what. I have lined up for the next day. So usually it's a mix between meetings. Some our collaborate with the design team once needed as well as account manager for any new requests checking on the status of ongoing projects as well touching base with the vp of digital. For any other items. That might be down the line sometimes. I am checking in with some of our dev engineers team on the status of things as managing few about digital initiatives and ecommerce sites. Yeah it really ranges mountain towns. I'm looking at analytics in number. Metrics is to see if you know some insights in in regards to the strategy. And make sure we're on pace. We're doing the right thing. There's room for improvement in always looking for some wounds improvements as well so it really varies. Throughout the day. Monday tuesday could be two completely different. Days does sound like a lot. Yes it's it's cool but yeah it can vary a lot. Have you had to adopt any sort of new like strategies or workflows over the past year. Yeah sure well. They tend to crack jokes on me. Because i am like the uae. Try to organize one. You know being a project manager and in the past and project management roles a really try to align and keep things as organiz as feasibly possible. So i think i've definitely had been allowed strong advocate for that. Not just for myself but across the team especially during kobe right so that one thing that be really just had to really make adjustments for the communication on big on communication. I think a lot of not just designed problems. I think a lot of problems in general could be resolved if we communicate elopement so readily had to be strategic in how we communicate and open up communications to help foster solutions especially now that we're not all in this together we can't just walk over to someone and so forth so the communication was definitely gonna be safe there and also iguanas when everything for his hidden in in the world changed right before. Is i do think aloud people kind of know what to do right. So we worked in mit working past normal times and things like that and i think for me was at a place where it had to be diligent about. Okay shut off. There's only so much you can do. And i think not just for me. A lot of people had to make that adjustment as well with the state of the world. Yeah i know a lot of think. It was last year right around the time that the that the pandemic happened. Or the the lockdown started to happen. I was talking with a lotta people for the show who they had either just started a new job in like now it's day for and their mentor. Work from home continually or they're having a tough time to transition from being in the office to now having to sort of work in this synchronous sort of fashion right. And i will say to me. Just because i've had roles in the past where i've worked remote merola north carolina. It was a big remote work environment. Culture prior i would go into the office but it was nothing to see a member who was working remote that day for various reasons. It was very flexible. People have kids people have health issues. We worked with teams across the country. Kind of remote teams across the country engineer so it was never never felt like everybody had to be all his so for me. I was comfortable already transitioned into a more remote environment but this has been the most. I don't know if this is the most remote. I just to show. Has there been like one thing that you've gotten that's really helped you make that adjustment pretty. Well bob meditated. On is i. I really got into a meditation a bit more. Just read different philosophies at least for me just trying to make sense of everything that was going on you know i. I don't have the head. Space is the head. Space app was very very helpful. Helped me sleep more consistently in and things like that. We all just trying to figure out what works for us right. I didn't feel i needed. I wasn't really looking for anything. I was going to make me a better employee anyway. On it I think i was more concerned with was going to help me maintain some schmidt to help during all this time. Yeah so like when it comes to working on a new project or with a new client. What does that creative process look like with you being the director strategy. I know you've got the team under you. What does that sort of process look like from start to finish well. It really varies. Because the relationship that we have with declines it changes in some cases we are more or less facilitators and creative may already common just working on a strategy how to execute it for them and what are the proper market in digital media channels so to speak and then other times. We are developing in design in house. And when that happens of course that's when the standard procedures. What's what's the goal was the objectives. What are we trying to achieve was the demographics that research behind it first before we start opening programs right trying to get an understanding of what the client needs. What goes let's the. Kpi was the measurement of success prior to all of that and then basically looking at our offerings the now tools and resources to see how we can best executed across the board. It may not always be digital 'execution it might be exponential execution might be Just some inserts in getting them the scanty oracle's taken you know micro sites and things like that might be a newsletter campaigns and stuff like that so it does vary but i think we start each project just trying to warn just get an understanding of what are the key goals and objectives and. How do we facilitate that. That making sure that we have the right information to go about executing properly across creative across strategy and course execution as well

"I think there's a very high chance that they would try to at least put her under surveillance issue. Was it already because of the way that she departed? And you know something I? Reflect that ally. Now having done this story is like what does that mean to be under surveillance all the time and we had like sort of the unfortunate task of. Thousands of documents of the files of people that were under cereals. The bills were said to stop it to bad things about their lives. And you start to wonder what does that mean to be under surveillance? How does that affect your life? Does it have any meeting for dot? Affi for example was really creepy to find out about, but it did have a great effect on his life, one way or the other as far as I know other people like if you're in a different country. PAJOT thought a lot about like for Laurie who now lives back the United States for myself like our family members who might be placed under surveillance as a result of working on the project or for you. What does that actually be it? You know it's something that I've lived with that for like your half like this idea that. It's not just paranoia like there really is a pretty high Chad's. That like based on what we were reporting that they would put us under surreal it, so we do a lot about how they do that. The different methods and there's all sorts of stuff they can do. They could get to your phone and use the microphone of your phone to like. Listen to your actual voice conversations. They can go through all your text messages your emails. Your communications with family. They hacked into the BB. Cabras of people to the daddy cabs or whatever. You think a lot about well. How does that change your behavior when you feel like you're like? Constant watch it is interesting you do find that there. A subtle shift like adds up to get better to your life where you're like. Oh well, you just Kinda have it by that there might be these watchers. That are like with you all the time and it's very subtle way. Influence your behavior. Things you say it. How you think it's a very strange thing, even though there might not be like concrete risk, you know terms of like a danger to your life. It changed the way you did anything. In terms of for example, you have a new baby Sending photos of your son did a change something about that. Yeah, it did. It changes the kinds of conversations that you feel like you're comfortable to have with people, certainly over the phone, and sometimes even not on the phone, because you're like wondering how that's going to be examined or looked at later and how it's going to be thought about, it's almost like. Somebody who's very religious and believes like God is like listening to every word that they say all the time you know that has a lot of effect on the type of speech they have you know you kind of have. That same sense of this omnipresent watcher so when we had our baby. I think I caught. It took the opposite thought of it where I was like well. I'm GonNa just lay everything out there. You know before I always kind of looked at people who posted to stuff about their baby at facebook, but then I was like well I want at least like my mother to know about as much about this BBS project..

This podcast outlines not only the great challenges that face us, but also looks for a new path forward. Look for heat of the moment wherever you get your podcasts. Lorries drought that I character. You mentioned. She becomes aware that product Raven is also targeting Americans. How did you find that out? So targeting Americans had always been a little bit of an issue on project, or even in the sense that like when you're doing a lot of surveillance, you're inevitably going to end up running into like people from the United States because like even if they're not the initial target baby there, someone who the targets talking to and you know for a lot of the operatives. Maybe that wasn't such a big deal, but for Laurie like she really came from this background at the NSA, where like targeting Americans was seen as being like a big. No, no and it was kind of a line that at the NSA. They weren't supposed to cross, and they had like a protocol for. And for Laurie when she saw that Americans did come under collection, she could play about it. And they created sort of because of her complaints and being a squeaky wheel. They create kind of protocol for how they're supposed to handle it when they come across US citizens. Practically even at Project Raven, and for a while they abide by that protocol. The protocol was okay. You spot the American citizens targeted than and. Notify this person, and then the information gets purged from the system et Cetera. Created the Yes, she created that protocol a log with a router, and for a while she was okay with that sort of accepted that answer, but she started seeing like board more at shoot flag it. and. She started to feel like. Maybe she's flagging. These things that actually like if she's discovering that the people are under collection again like a few weeks later, maybe a BB. They're just kind of say to make her feel better and she started worrying about that eventually. Because she was at a badge mid position over other adolescents, she was in a position to go through their kind of work assignments, and she started going through work assignments of other people that where she was supposed to be supervised, started fighting, other information was being collected Americans at what she noticed that she started doing a search of all the work of all like the lists of side rates, and what she found was that there was actually like a secret list that they called the white list. And the White List was like the code that they are give it for American targets, and they tried to put it under a designation so that she could view it, but she found subway view in any way. She said there's an entire list of Americans that she started looking threat and she ask landed. She's like. How did I not know that there was this list like well? You didn't know because we want you to know about it because you're always complaining about it so now. You're trying to involve yourself in something that you say you don't want to be involved in. She's like it's not just that I don't want to be doing I. Don't want to be working on a project that is targeting. America. It's an idea that you were just supposed to try to keep it hidden from me. That leads to this big blow up She heads up..

Email accounts, you know. He has a disabled brother. They've hacked like support groups for that disability that his parents belonged to as a way of trying to get into his parents accounts. They've hacked his disabled brothers IPAD. They've got after him like this. Like really like full-on. And the Americans are right at the center of this operation. They conduct this operation. They craft the emails that go to hear the bells. Rory Work Ubad rights. Defenders of the UAE and we need your help, and if only you can install this special messaging software so that we can communicate. And he does it hindsight in hindsight it. Seemed, like a great Lou, but like at the time and he just. The idea that people are going to be targeted, have like that was something. That really surprised him quite a bit. Creepy -ness of it. Does it have an impact on his day to day life? Do they or is it mostly about the fact that he's so incredibly tracked and he's pretty much justice guy with blog. Yes, so it's interesting, you know there are a lot of different cases. These guys protracting like thousands of people right and so like dot affi. It really had almost no impact at all, right? The Guy Lives in the UK. He's being tracked, but it doesn't really impact him at all. In fact, he doesn't even know about until we call him the. He found out about it because we're like hey, worry. US But like it's just really weird thing. We got all this documentation and these guys be tracking you for like years. There's like thousands of files on you. Know every website you visit and emails, you said. I just wanted to give you a heads up now for him. It doesn't have a very big impact, but for the people he's talking to. It has a tremendous impact and he's talking to, so he's talking to like human rights advocates. Such as Moore who you know is somebody who's like kind of speaking up for civil human rights in the UAE, and he's based in the he's based in the US is an Emirati guy, and has a tremendous impact and we know this because we got the documents, the sort of powerpoint presentations that project raven gave to the Emirati security forces where they say here's conversations between Rory Donosti and Montour which shows that ofman months, or is speaking ill of the UAE to these outside agitators. and. They used that as evidence against him and. Actually was detained. He's the jail now it. He was tortured and he was like one of a number of people we foued project Raven was involved there surveillance that ended up getting tortured. Did any of the Americans. Come to know the consequences of what was happening to the people that were targeting. Yeah they do the consequences. I think something that should be mentioned about the American sort of their defense slightly. Is. You know these are not political scientists. These are not people big political insights. Broad understanding about the region. They weren't living in the region before for the most part they get brought out there. They have a very narrow mission. You beyond the idea of getting it to these people's computers in collecting their emails, and doing a very basic level of analysis of who they're talking to and the types of things they're saying they don't have like the bigger picture thinking about this a lot of times, I'd asked him I'd be like well. It doesn't seem weird that you were involved the detention of like this guy. That you're spike. Are these journalists at other cases? They were expired like. Who wanted to peace prize like? Don't you think that's kind of odd like well? We die baby. Rory Dot Affi is involved in some kind of terror. Operation at some, Broadway? How do I know they don't like the big picture? They don't understand the big picture. They very much see it as their job to to look at the big picture because you have to remember, they're coming from a US military background, and even though they're not like answering to the US military anymore. They see it as their job to kind of like. Follow orders to sort of do what they're told that this sense that they're not gonNa, know the whole reason why this person might pose a threat. There are being told that they pose a threat to them. It seems reasonable, okay? This guy's a bus Brotherhood member. He hasn't committed any. Crime that I know about, but that doesn't mean that he has committed a crime that I don't know about so they door belies at for a long time, but. For some of these you believe it after they laughed although they regretted some of the actions like by large. Along the still see this be okay. The Corona virus has swept.

"You Know I. Hear. Things aren't going so well for you. I've. I've just left the NSA myself. And I have this great opportunity I can't tell you too much about it, but the pay is like unbelievable, and she really didn't know exactly what it was going to involve. She knew there was a counterterrorism mission and you know when she told me that it sounded like little hard to believe, but as I spoke to more people who worked on project grave, and they really did not know what was involved in it until they got out to Abu. Dhabi. Because this was like a secret project and when they got out there, they'd I begin this purple briefing and the Purple Briefing was you know being hired to work on this cyber defense capability where you're? You're setting up firewalls and monitoring traffic. And you're not allowed to disclose this. And then once you signed off on the purple briefing. They said okay now. Are you interested in getting the black briefing? And if you said yes, then you'd be given. The black briefing and the black briefing told you that the purple briefing was just a cover story. At the Black Rafik was you're going to be involved cyber offensive. Bishop, Hacking Mission to spy ABE's of this country, an enemies as and finding out our journalists, human rights workers, all kinds of different people. That's what I mean they they describe enemies in the beginning is being terrorists, and that's really what people believe that this mission was about going, and did anyone leave after getting blocking? No. You're already so deep in there? You're like in another country. Your setup and you're also getting paid like a lot of money like what a lot of money what? Is like a half a million dollars a year. They didn't all get that. A lot of did that was not an uncommon. Cover. It'd be stuck. Living expenses are covered you're. You're getting anywhere for like two upwards of two hundred thousand to half a billion dollars to Pentagon like your level in the program. What were they making? Data say they're baking like like eighty thousand. This is a significant change. This is huge for them, and it might even be making less in the military to be honest. You said there. They mentioned in them. We were talking about terrorists, but who is the UA targeted the stage and let's think about some specific stories that you discover. So. I really believe that when and the American the Americans I go out there and we you know when we talk about this in the story that you know that the unit was actually set up originally by this famous counterterrorism, czar Richard Clarke I, really believe that when it was originally created that they really thought it was going to be for counter terrorism I really think that there was a legitimate fear terrorism by the Americans for the U. A. and I think the A had a legitimate fear themselves we. Remind listeners Richard Clarke is. So Richard Clark. was responsible for counterterrorism under George W Bush and Clinton, and he was responsible most importantly when nine eleven happened. So, but in this case he wants us, then called project read. Yeah, so after he leaves the government, he had had a very long term relationship with the Crown Prince of Ya essentially the leader of the country people call. Mohammed Bin Zayid are people. Call Them NBC. And he had this long term relationship with him because of his role and counter-terrorism, and so he basically pitches this idea that the USA needs like a cyber intelligence capability like the NSA in the US, and he pitches this idea and the UA agrees that they need this capability, and they bring it Richard Clarke to set it up and Richard Clarke brings in a couple of subcontractors. Subcontractors, the idea really is that they need a way to be able to track. What terrorists are doing it to stop al-Qaeda i? Really do think that was like what they believe that would be used for I. do think that in hindsight there's a little bit of naivete because you know. This is still like an incredibly autocratic country and I think giving them a cyber surveillance capability. I think that they didn't consider carefully. What the implications of that would be for people who are speaking up against the government internally and I know that they didn't consider Catholics asked Richard. Clarke and I asked you know was concern for you. Did you express this concern at least or put some caveats on their us? And he basically said our concern here was stopping AL, Qaeda and no matter how asked him the question like? He was like I do not remember that being a concern at the time. And he was, he was very straightforward about it. Actually like refreshingly, so I thought. You find that while maybe they went into this thinking that there would be targeting terrorists. The UA begins to target dissidents, human rights, activists and journalists. Yes, can you tell me about a journalist to targeted? Yeah, so theorist spraying which starts like in two thousand and eleven really. Kinda shifts the whole region in a number of ways essentially have turmoil breakout in countries all around the bay. Right like you know like you have to use in Egypt and Libya. Knew what happened in Syria and All the Gulf countries get really worried that this kind of Thomas is going to spread to their region and net. You'RE GONNA have demonstrators on the streets that are calling for change and maybe something that could even like a violent overthrow of these governments. And that's the thing that really shifts the focus for these operatives that are working on project raven so up until that I mean. The project's still just kinda getting set up starts in two thousand, nine, two, thousand, ten two thousand eleven happens and. They start to say well. We're not just interested in counter-terrorism, but we're also interested. In national security targets, national security targets was kind of the coding for people that were seen as a threat to the government, not necessarily because of terrorism, but because of the types of things that they were saying so for example that pertains to the people who were part of the Muslim Brotherhood movement who are calling for like a different type of government, a government that is. More leaning towards Islam, and even if they're not calling for the overthrow of the government, the fact that they're pushing for a different type of leadership is seen as like a real threat to that government. Pretty quickly there fear extends even pass just like the Muslim Brotherhood members to people like you. We wrote about this guy named burry Don Affi 'cause this. Is, Journal. He's a British journalist. Based in the UK and he was really just like a guy who graduated college, and was looking for some kind of like do-gooder activities overseas, so he started like a wordpress blog at he caught it like the Barada Human Rights Center essentially at the beginning I think it was just like reprinting Human Rights Watch press releases, but because he had like Emirati, the name of the blog I think it turned up high like search results, because there's just not that many people at the time who are writing about the UA, and so you can imagine in the UAE government. Government officials are like Kinda googling the name of the country, a lot and human rights concerns, and his blog is coming up at the top of those search results so that they start to see this guy for that reason being a major threat, even though he's like a bloggers like somebody, nobody really knew about or cared about they start to see him as being a major threat, given the codename Gyro,.

"EFC studios in the climate investment funds. Look for it wherever you get your podcast. From foreign policy. I'm Sarah. Wildman and this is first person this week. SPIES OF THE UAE The New York Times revealed that the popular messaging APP to talk developed by the United Arab Emirates was spyware. The APP allowed users to engage by video or text. It also allowed the government to gain access to use your personal data and track user whereabouts New York. Times reports the U. Eight based. APP has been downloaded to millions of phones all around the world, and it's alleged ties with the UAE government. Make it quote the latest escalation of a digital arms race. This wasn't the first hacking scandal for the UAE which has used surveillance programs to target other regimes in its own dissidents in recent years. This week on First Person Year from Joel Chapman an investigative reporter for Reuters who co wrote a series of stories in the past year, but the US hacking and surveillance program. His partner on the project was Christopher Bing also Reuters. The two reporters discovered among other things that the U.. E. Was employing Americans in its secret program, including veterans of the national. Security Agency. How did you come to find out about project to begin with? So, it was really kind of crazy actually. I was like one of these weird points that I get into some has worked in these long term projects, and like sometimes like I'll finish a long term project at I was looking for something ad. I started going back to my role. Just take people for drugs. I found this one guy in the intelligence community at management level at a cyber tells US contractor. which swept for drugs and He told me this really weird story about how he hired somebody recently. That had just returned from the Gulf. And he said you know it was really weird because the guy told him after he hired him, I think that he had disclose. The fact that he was involved in an FBI investigation. and the subjective. Subject or as a as a as a witness he had been involved activity. That was the subject of the FBI investigation when activity was was what he had been doing overseas. At essentially, he had to disclose the fact that the reason he had actually left. His previous job was because his previous job was working for this hack unit. At what day he realized that not only have they been hacking into all these other people. On behalf of government, but eventually they had started targeting American citizens, and when he realized that they had started targeting American citizens at American companies at American bags. He felt that he had to leave that job, but once he came back to the US. He was approached by F. B.. I. Agents to ask him about that guy would talk to me, but now I do that. This was happening. This was like second hand, and you already knew the name did the Japan. No I I didn't know the day. It was actually really weird, weird thing that happened 'cause I went out with this guy and. He was telling me the story I got really drunk. That'd be like drug her that I ever guide and I did drink very much at. It was really weird. He'd like to drake's or three drags. And I was like sick, and the whole thing has very suspicious feeling, too, because like I i. don't easily get sick. I. Did I get dosed? Something Weird happened. It was such a weird story. That I didn't know what to think of it, and the whole thing was really weird and I. I called my reporting parter later that night and I was still like really out of it, and you can imagine I'm telling you this crazy story drug and he's like well. Why are we talking about this? And so what I did though was I tried to come up with tried to come up with a list of different contractors that people work for who have those backgrounds those skills and we found that there was a certain like overlapped. For Cyber Point Let's cyber. So Sira Point was maryland-based cybersecurity company that employs a lot of former hackers from the NSA and other former intelligence types, and it's kind of weird company. If you go to their website, because you'll see like you go to the about US section, and they have employees there. And they'll have like pictures. The employees but their faces are redacted or blacked out of their names redacted black. So you get the sense that it's kind of a little bit of a weird outfit, so we figured out was that there were like these two companies cyber point, and then this Emirati firm called dark matter. That is Emirati based technology company? There had been some writing about them before even at foreign policy magazine and we figured out that if there were people that worked successively in Cyber Point and dark matter, the chances are maybe they were part of this unit. And at first like when we were contacting, people like this was not a story that they like wanted to tell because there was this FBI investigation going on, but we did get this name project rated that that was what they had been doing. At first people really tried to couch it and say well what we were. It was a training mission. We were going out there to teach maradas like these basic cyber skills so. Maybe. What I heard was exaggerated so. We were hearing these conflicting accounts, but then eventually I'd go back to the same people and the story started to evolve. It's started to be like well the Emirati. Have people who can do these operations themselves, so we're kind of teaching them to do it, but we're teaching it sort of by doing it. By doing what like well, so basically like through successive interviews and asking the same people, the same questions like many many times came out that essentially what the mission was that they'd be given these targets. And targets were individuals are the targets individuals, and they were governments, and they were companies, and it was their job to like find vulnerabilities in those people's computers in those people's emails. And that was through sending messages through what? Yeah and sometimes it was fishing messages. Sometimes it would be like there just be vulnerabilities in the systems. People were using like sometimes they would go out and they would pay for outside companies to build software that was specifically to break into like an iphone for example, and all the stuff very perishable right like. If you build something it might cost like ten million dollars to build like a tool that can break into iphones, but doesn't mean it's going to last long eventually like apple figures it out, and so what we learned over time was not a training mission. All they were doing everything. The one rule that they had was in the end. The Emirati officers would have to like be the one to hit enter, so they would set up the entire like attack and they'd be like okay. This person's using the iphone this version. Here's the way we can break into that phone or they would write the. The fishing messages even a lot of times. They would case out the system at the end like after all that was done, they would hand off like that sort of profile that person and everything would be cute up. And then the Emirati officer would like hit the enter button. And it was literally letting hitting the enter button with like the American standing over them, and telling that the press that and that gave them sort of the licensed to like say that this was advising rather than actually doing so the Americans then were an essential piece of setting up project Raven, the Americans were project driven. So in your Frisbees you've talked about a woman named Laura Stroud. Tell me about her. So Lori was one of the first people who we spoke to extensively in the first story like her thing was that she had always worked at the NSA go to college. She went straight into the military and from there. She was at the NSA. Hankering to go overseas nine eleven happened, and she thought that she was going to get deployed, but she stayed in Hawaii working at the NSA. And then eventually this thing happens where she recommends the hiring of Edward Snowden, and you know like ended up being like a really bad higher for her, and she wasn't fired for it, but she was like really on the outs, and so she has this manager caller and managers like well..
