Intelligence, Secrecy & Power, N. 640, 16 June 2014

WORLD MEDIA – FROM 24 MAY 2014 TO 13 JUNE 2014 REPORTS & SYNTHESIS

This issue of “Intelligence, Secrecy & Power” (ISP), number 640, covers from 24 May 2014 to 13 June 2014 and includes 39 pages of data in 398 entries or 21,478 words, and 45* noteworthy entries marked *. This ISP format provides information by topic and then by chronological listing of the media reports. In this issue, as with preceding issues, Israel/Palestine, but not Syria, appears as a separate topic, independent of the general Middle East topic which now includes Syria, Iraq and Egypt, as distinct from certain past issues, and as such these different topics are not strictly comparable with the preceding issues of ISP where these topics may be separate. The numbers for this issue’s specific topics over three weeks, as compared to the previous issue’s two-week period, are: MIDDLE EAST (Mide, 65X, 3*, 29X previously), Iraq explodes, Egypt vote, Syrian war & vote; US INTERNAL SECURITY (FBI, 48X, 8*, 15X previously), Gun violence, Cop & Rightwing violence; ASIA (Asia, 48X, 35X previously), Thai coup, Chinese expansion, India’s Modi & Tiananmen; WESTERN EUROPE (West, 36x, 4*, 8X previously), EU rightwing vote, Cameron & UK getting out; EASTERN EUROPE (East, 34X, 4*, 29X previously), Pro-Russia rebellion continues in Ukraine; AFRICA (Afr, 33X, 3*, 42X previously), Al Shabaab in Somalia & Boko Haram in Nigeria; PAKISTAN/AFGHANISTAN (Paf, 29X, 2*, 7X previously), Taliban splits, Bergdahl freed, Afghan vote; US NSA SCANDAL (Spy, 21X, 4*, 13X previously), Snowden on NBC, NSA faces, Oliver Stone film; US DOMESTIC POLITICS (Pol, 19X, 4*, 13X previously), Bergdahl exchange, Cantor loss, Tea Party; ISRAEL/PALESTINE (Isr, 20X, 2*, 9X previously), Hamas-Fatah unity & Kidnapped Israelis; ECONOMICS (Eco, 13X, 2*, 6X previously), Piketty, capitalism & inequality; US FOREIGN INTEL (CIA, 10X, 1*, 3X previously), Guantanamo, Torture, Drones & Allende/Chili; TECHNOLOGY & GLOBAL TOPICS (Tech, 8X, 2*, 4X previously), Sex crimes & World’s obese; ENVIRONMENT (Env, 6X, 2*, 14X previously), Vermont’s anti-GMO law & Obama on coal pollution; US DEFENSE DEPT (DOD, 5X, 1*, 2X previously), Veterans Administration scandal; LATIN AMERICA (Amer, 5X, 0*, 3X previously).

2012 Parapolitics

 

Below is the 2012 Strategic Diagram based on the analysis of over 5,000 world media reports of 2012 recorded by the ADI on national and international conflicts. Centrality (number of ties outside a cluster/topic) is the horizontal axis and density (number of internal ties in a cluster/topic) is the vertical axis. The “mainstream” topics are therefore central and dense (upper right-hand quadrant): they are “Kill”, “Israel”, “Syria”, “Egypt”, “Republican” and “Scandal”. The entire set of graphics, associated statistics and 5,000-and-some original media reports – 2012 Parapolitics – is available for 25 euros from the ADI (email Intelligence-ADI@wanadoo.fr). Purchasers also receive other advantages.

(graphics can be enlarged)
