Quote of the Day
Attackers will very likely use “The Hard Reset” as a guide to “sainthood” where white mass shooters become idolized and labeled as saints. The five criteria required to become a saint include being of white race, conducting a deliberate attack, having motive to kill those who “threaten the white race,” a “score” of killing at least one, and sharing the worldview of white supremacy. Attackers will likely try to meet all this criteria to become saints. Some radicalized individuals planning to attack will likely view the casualty criteria as competition, likely aiming to kill as many as possible, likely to garner influence in the white supremacist community and media attention. Far-right lone actors, influenced by neo-nazi groups and ideologies, will likely conduct attacks, likely aiming at causing chaos and mass casualties.

FLASH ALERT: HIGH RISK OF VIOLENCE WITH THE PUBLICATION OF “THE HARD RESET: A TERRORGRAM PUBLICATION
I work on a threat intel team. I get it. Threat intelligence work and predictions are hard to get right. But man, for all the “HIGH likelihood”, “ALMOST CERTAINLY”, and, “HIGH PROBABILITY” rhetoric, these guys sure missed the mark. Their prediction was eight months ago for things to happen in the next week. Which didn’t happen.
It’s almost as if they have a confirmation bias problem.
