[5]COMMENT:The State Depart­men­t’s “Min­istry of Truth” is going to be head­ed by a Fox News and CIA vet­er­an, Lea Gabrielle. Designed to neu­tral­ize what the Pow­ers That Be deem to be for­eign pro­pa­gan­da, the bland­ly-named Glob­al Engage­ment Cen­ter [6] has been exem­pli­fied by its attempts to por­tray as “Russ­ian dis­in­for­ma­tion” the ver­i­fi­ably Nazi char­ac­ter and polit­i­cal her­itage of the OUN/B suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tions wield­ing the police, edu­ca­tion­al and nation­al secu­ri­ty reins in Ukraine.

” . . . . Gabrielle, who begins her job on Feb. 11, was described to reporters by deputy spokesman Robert Pal­ladi­no on Thurs­day as ‘a for­mer CIA-trained human intel­li­gence oper­a­tions offi­cer, defense for­eign liai­son offi­cer, Unit­ed States Navy pro­gram direc­tor, Navy F/A‑18C fight­er pilot, and nation­al tele­vi­sion news cor­re­spon­dent and anchor at two dif­fer­ent net­works. . . .”

Cur­rent Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo was for­mer­ly head of the CIA.

“State Depart­ment Names Fox News and Navy Vet­er­an to Counter Pro­pa­gan­da” by Charles S. Clark; Gov­ern­ment Exec­u­tive; 2/8/2019. [7]

 Top State Depart­ment offi­cials on Thurs­day announced the long-rumored appoint­ment of Navy vet­er­an and for­mer Fox News cor­re­spon­dent Lea Gabrielle as a spe­cial envoy in charge of the department’s con­tro­ver­sial three-year-old Glob­al Engage­ment Cen­ter. [8]

“The fight against pro­pa­gan­da and dis­in­for­ma­tion is one we must win,” Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo announced to staff. “Under Lea’s vision­ary lead­er­ship, Amer­i­ca will be bet­ter pro­tect­ed from those who would turn hearts and minds against us.”

Gabrielle, who begins her job on Feb. 11, was described to reporters by deputy spokesman Robert Pal­ladi­no on Thurs­day as “a for­mer CIA-trained human intel­li­gence oper­a­tions offi­cer, defense for­eign liai­son offi­cer, Unit­ed States Navy pro­gram direc­tor, Navy F/A‑18C fight­er pilot, and nation­al tele­vi­sion news cor­re­spon­dent and anchor at two dif­fer­ent net­works.”

[10]Crit­ics in the diplo­mat­ic com­mu­ni­ty, how­ev­er, high­light­ed the Trump administration’s oth­er hires from Fox News: Heather Nauert as act­ing State Depart­ment spokes­woman and cur­rent nom­i­nee to be Unit­ed Nations ambas­sador, and Bill Shine, Deputy White House chief of staff for com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

For­eign Pol­i­cy mag­a­zine [11], which broke the sto­ry on Gabrielle’s appoint­ment and inter­viewed her this week, said the small office Gabrielle will run “became a polit­i­cal light­ning rod amid feuds between the Trump admin­is­tra­tion and Con­gress over how to address threats, includ­ing Russ­ian elec­tion med­dling, in the wake of the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tions. The inter­nal fight reflects a broad­er chal­lenge the U.S. gov­ern­ment faces in how to con­front mis­in­for­ma­tion and pro­pa­gan­da from abroad,” wrote reporters Rob­bie Gramer and Elias Groll.

In their exclu­sive inter­view, Gabrielle said, “We have to real­ize that we are under attack by adver­sary coun­tries and inter­na­tion­al ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions that are using pro­pa­gan­da and dis­in­for­ma­tion as a weapon. They’re doing it because it’s cheap, and it’s easy, and because they can.” . . . .
