Bellingcat, for and by citizen investigative journalists

Bellingcat is a website founded by Brown Moses.

Bellingcat will bring together both critically acclaimed and emerging citizen investigative journalists using open source information to investigate, collaborate, and report on worldwide issues that are being underreported and ignored.

Open source information, which is information freely available to anyone through the Internet—think YouTube, Google Maps, Reddit—has made it possible for ANYONE to gather information and source others, through social media networks. Think the Syrian Civil War. Think the Arab Spring.

If Abdullah is fradulently election, I anticipate that he will NOT sign the BSA, this having been a condition for Iran’s funding of his campaign and Karzai-Daudzai fraud.

After all, as Mr. Ghani readily reminds people, he has written a book titled “Fixing Failed States.”
