Are the online video gaming websites the perfect recruitment places for the hostile foreign intelligence services, including the GRU? – GS
“Almost every teen plays video games — 97 percent of boys, according to the Pew Research Center, and 83 percent of girls.”
And out of this number, about 1% to 5% may be quite susceptible to the online manipulations, including the “priming” for mass killings and other crimes detrimental to National Security, like these recent Pentagon leaks. Out of the 1-5% susceptible group, there is probably a final 1-5% of doers group. Computer interactions are very likely augmented by the real life human agents, witting or not.

If true, this association will indicate (the still hypothetical and in need of further confirmations) involvement of the Russian intelligence services (“Spetsnaz”?) and the MOB-TOC in these incidents.
It is not the availability of guns that matters much. It is the availability of the skills and subjects of these services (mass killings as the Special Psychological, intimidating Operations) that matters; well paid and otherwise rewarded by the ultimate customers (mostly Putin?).
In other words, this is the Counterintelligence issue, more than any other. And it is one of the #Counterintelligence failures, which now become more and more visible.
