Journalists are seldom the story and they shouldn't be. The Ukrainian war is unfortunately changing that. Starting last year in Donbass, the world got a taste of what it's like when Ukraine's army actively hunts journalists down. This is what happened to Andrei Stenin among many other Russian journalists.
If American journalists are publishing in America or worldwide markets are they legitimate targets in a war? Can Ukraine arrest American journalists writing in publications outside of Ukraine in the English language?
Can a private US citizen use another country's military or "spy agency" to target anyone including other Americans?
It's not hypothetical. It's happening to me right now.
I have received a lot of communications about what I write concerning the war here. When you consider this one, think about what it means if you live in any country that prides itself on human rights, dignity, and freedoms.
Hello George Eliason,
Joel Harding ( -off|AT|email.ru" target="_blank"> F -off|AT|email.ruEmail address ) has sent you a message via your contact form ( http://russia-insider.com/en/user/1193/contact ) at Russia Insider News.

It's been fun following you! I hope you're having fun in Donbas. So sorry NovoRossiya is being dissolved. http://toinformistoinfluence.com/2014/10/12/novorossiya-fail/
I've been looking forward to you publishing some more articles. But I'm curious, two months and nothing? Did you change names?
I know your bandwidth there is limited, this is probably costing you many Russian rubles. Oh yeah, I hear they don't take Ukrainian Hryvnia. The good news is that Luhansk and Donetsk will both remain with Ukraine, Russia can't afford it.
By the time you return to the West, I should be in Kyiv, waiting for you. You have a date with the SBU.
Who is Joel Harding?
To start to get an idea of who this man is, Before becoming Ukraine's King Troll, Harding was one of the war planners for the Iraq war, the Afghanistan war, and the invasion of Haiti. He was the Joint Staff J2 in support of Special Operations. He became the Joint Staff J2 liaison for IO (Information Operations) for the CIA, DIA, NSA, DISA and assorted agencies in Washington. He helped develop the methodologies and technologies used by the NSA, CIA, and US Military that Edward Snowden speaks about.
Harding is the man that developed and implemented Ukraine's info war and propaganda effort, as well as the Odessa Massacre and the MH17 cover ups. He is behind every Russian invasion of Ukraine that never happened.
Looking at the message above, there is no mistaking Harding's writing style. When I say I've read Harding I mean it started with "Hello world" and ended with every public piece listed on the search engines. That was before I wrote one sentence about what he does. His smarmy understanding of even my connectivity says he's been looking at a little more than the articles I publish. Files missing off my computer and a few other interesting annoyances attest to that.
Why is Joel Harding Interested in me?
