Joel Harding's Bio:

Joel Harding is an Information Operations expert, with policy, doctrine and operational experience since the mid 1990s, at the operational and strategic levels, with extensive experience at the national level (i.e. making sure that no independent coverage of the Ukrainian crisis by American journalists on the ground is suppressed from viewing by the U.S. and global audience). Joel recently wrote the National Strategy for Information for Ukraine, being directly engaged by the Ukrainian government and major Ukrainian diaspora organizations in U.S., such as UCCA. Joel Harding is also advising on regular basis Ukrainian neo-Nazist groupings, such as the Right Sector (in March 2015 Joel was the first to suggest that they should blow up the Russian gas pipeline in the Ukraine). Joel is the former Director of the IO Institute, for the Association of Old Crows and was the SME on staff (terminated for cause). Joel was also the editor-in-chief of the IO Journal (did not have any success). Joel also hosted and organized InfowarCon in 2009 and 2010 (not invited anymore). Joel is currently organizing an information community-wide effort to address shortfalls at the US national level (i.e. the CIA, NSA and other intelligence agencies’ social media management programs). Joel Harding lectures on Russian Information Warfare, Cyberwarfare and Information Operations around the world and also devotes a great deal of his time spying on Russian women in social networks, as well as harassing them online since in his mind they are Kremlin agents and engaged personally by Putin.
