It seems like disinformation inherently exploits domestic tensions within the US. How can anyone measure its effect when those divisions exist irrespective of any foreign influence?

Even if a foreign actor "amplifies" these divisions in terms of messaging, tweets, and posts, ultimately voters already felt that way and are politically inclined in certain directions and seek out information spaces that confirm their prior biases.

Thank god people like you are defending the information space or we’d be fucked. I salute you.

Could you explain a little more what you mean by the "front lines" of the information war? Were you conducting influence operations first-hand? Were you embedded in a government-run information warfare unit?
