1 - their CEO has no real linkedIn history 
2 - they revenue and employment went off the chart just in 2 quarters 
3 - very unclear how they came to this assessment. Especially now that US government is looking for excuses (real or fabricated) to make a case for war with Iran, I look at these evidence with some skepticism.
Am I being over-cynical here?

Why newsbreezer has an article dated an hour earlier in a Google search than the Forbes article which is hosting the image on both sites, and why it's coincidentally sub-texted with KIEV, UKRAINE, I can't explain...
Regardless, it would be irresponsible to trust their attribution claim, especially when no evidence has been presented.

This is either an insider joke or a jump back to 2004.
That is a page that I doubt the author would have wanted to be public, and is not linked to from the home page or its descendants. Wasn't that the case against weev?
(IMO, if it is public, it should be legal to post to it, but whatever.)
As you can see, the link is gone now.
Throw it into Google's reverse image search and you'll find the graphic if was cut out of:
The point is that using PRNewswire or Businesswire is hardly “suspicious,” because most businesses that do press releases use one or the other.
The Golden Bridge trophies seem to be available to buy if you've won.
I mean, I don't like tipping. I think it's horrible in many aspects, not the least of which how it taps directly into racial and gender prejudices monetarily (black waiters make less in tips regardless of service level). That said, I tip. I would rather not be known as the guy that doesn't tip (and wages assume tips as of now, so it's a bit unfair to the service people). I'm still free to tip or not, and others are free to judge or misjudge me for it if I do.
Zero evidence, but most Americans didn’t know any personally but knew they had oil money to buy/sell investments.
The articles are summaries of what the government and the companies discovered. Read the indictment linked in the last article or the reports from the companies for details.
Fundamentally though the news requires belief. It is there for the 'capitalist flock' who have a world where the government, democracy as we know it and the laws we have define the world.
With normal religion the real things that happen with celestial bodies get interpreted in some narrative that has to do with some carpenter's son who died a long time ago. A whole new world of god is created which is an abstraction of physical realities. Rather than 'primitive sun worshipping' there is this new religion to believe in, the religion accounts for everything in its own special way.
If you could teleport 500 years into the future and learned about TV news and how people believed it then you would wonder how people disbelieved facts they observed with their own eyes and what they knew to be true by the calling of their own heart and their own sense of reason.
Therefore, at least as a thought experiment, see the news and the nasty things said about people outside capitalist countries as 'religion'. It all becomes clearer then.
But the idea that general IT security companies have a reduced chance of hiring someone based on their information being on social media is... not the case.
Unlikely that they are a front to a US operation. But very likely that it's a start-up that leverages the currently toxic climate in order to get themselves in the news. Making half baked attribution claims is a perfect way to do so. One might even say that not doing so would be leaving money on the table.
I have some contact with cybersec in Europe and it is very common that cybersec professionals in gov and mil positions do not have any social media accounts under their own name, and certainly not linkedin. Social media makes you too much of a target and reveals too much about your org. When promoted to a public-facing position the person then suddenly "appears" from nowhere and the media profile has as little information as possible. Real professionals use those accounts only from designated computers, and if you are high ranking enough (head of...) in fact never use them at all, but rather have someone else using them for you. All in the name of keeping your own actions and locations away from the curious.
It's effectively malware though at least they display it up-front, which is more than can be said for most.
Generous interpretation - they're brand new (first Tweet 2/13/2019, first blog 2/19/2019).
Would love to know if those logos & awards are legit (quick search of the awards makes some look like pay to win).
One answer is: Sponsor the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards
There's a voting scheme, but the FAQ does state: The popular vote will only be considered if two or more nomination are tied for an award
At some point, Occam's razor will favor that this company is having its strings pulled by some larger entity that doesn't want to be revealed.
Too many times we are led into disaster and tragedy by secrets.
which was apparently uploaded last month...
But there were many more. So please don't spread unsubstantiated falsehoods and doubt.
They do confirm that chemical weapons were used. Who used them, is not determined, and even the reports themselves state that the provenance of the chemicals is out of scope of the FFM.
It states that Sarin and chlorine-based weapons were used - but the FFM was not able to visit the site directly and relied on samples collected by third parties and provided to the FFM for the purposes of their investigation. The only conclusion is: chemical weapons were used.
It does not, in any way, state that the Syrian government were responsible for the attack.
Indeed, the Syrian government themselves requested this mission proceed to determine the use of these chemical weapons - why would they do that if they knew they'd used the chemical weapons?
>But there were many more. So please don't spread unsubstantiated falsehoods and doubt.
If you have further evidence that supports the claim that the Syrian government used these weapons, please provide it. Thus far, you have failed to apply your own demand for evidence.
They can be used to make a conclusion. We don't need the mandate, and we can think for ourselves, no? In both cases the munitions were reportedly dropped from the air. Once from the airplane, and second time from helicopters.
Rebel groups don't have airplanes or heliopters, so Khan-Sheikoun attack was most likely made by the Assad regime. Douma can be speculated about somewhat more, but dropping the chlorine containers from the air was not excluded, and was quite likely, based on previous documented droppings of chlorine canisters from helicopters, that used the same mounting technology.
It was also not unprecedentend, dropping chlorine canisters from helicoters by Assad regime was docummneted previously on multiple occasions. The same canisters, and mounting technology for dropping from helicopters. The same goes for Sarin use. (look up other Sarin uses OPCW investigated)
I mean what's so surprising about this? Assad regime has been procuring chemical weapons for decades. They do it just for fun? It's a very expensive hobby.
> Indeed, the Syrian government themselves requested this mission proceed to determine the use of these chemical weapons - why would they do that if they knew they'd used the chemical weapons?
How would I know.
You can obviously kill people and request an inestigation at the same time. There's nothing that prevents that.
It's pointless to speculate on motives. But hey: Because they don't care? Because nothing's gonna happen anyway? Because they were scared of non-cooperation? Because Russia wanted them to? Because it's good optics in the war propaganda - it seems like they have nothing to hide? Calculated risk? (noone's gonna invade them for chlorine use, and they would have had to know that Sarin was not used in Douma, so why not?)
Even if Sarin would have been used, most likely nothing would have happened to them, like many times before. There were several other recent Sarin uses that went unpunished. US is not there for a regime change, and Assad has an upper hand, except for Idlib, and SDF areas. Chemicals are a great weapon for terrorizing civilian population. So why not use them after calculating some risks?
Just look at some WWI documentaries. People/leaders can get completely crazy under a war situation, and justify pretty much anything - even sacrificing almost 30000 soldiers in one day in pointless attacks. It's pointless to speculate on motives now.
I mean, yes, USA foreing policy is a mess. But we should still be bothered by facts.
Socialists and Shiites were obviously occasionally funded and armed by the USA, and I even alluded to this - Saddam was a socialist, and the new government of Iraq was a Shiite government. However, that doesn’t negate what I said - read it carefully. Far more mainstream sources than me have pointed this out:
The right Audience for such message that can digest are minority.
I would say, don't count on having any kind of support from such places (HN, reddit, facebook, twitter, Quora etc). US has the media and already online media too.
Keep pushing <3
It's just too easy to do this.
