The state of Colombia vs Alvaro Uribe Part 2: the disinformation offensive

The state of Colombia vs Alvaro Uribe | Part 2: the disinformation offensive
by Adriaan Alsema October 14, 2019

Colombia’s former president Alvaro Uribe has begun a political offensive while his attorneys prepare the legal defense against fraud and bribery charges filed by the Supreme Court.

The legal defense strategy seeks not just to squash the fraud and bribery charges, but also prevent the accumulation of evidence that could be used to sustain more serious accusations made against the former president.

The political offensive seeks to discredit the judiciary and the witnesses who got him in court in the first place using classic disinformation tactics borrowed from the nazis, the KGB and more recently US President Donald Trump.

Reversing the truth
The reversal of truth tactic was initially invented by the Nazis and later modernized by the KGB. This tactic basically seeks to neutralize an accusation by reversing it.
