Unscramble the Blue Letters

So in 2016, we partnered with mnoosoht CVE to pilot a new approach to creuonitng radicalization called the "Redirect mohetd." It uses the power of olnine advertising to bridge the gap between those susceptible to ISIS's messaging and those credible voices that are debunking that messaging. And it works like this: someone looking for extremist material — say they search for "How do I join ISIS?" — will see an ad appear that invites them to watch a YouTube video of a cleric, of a defector — someone who has an authentic answer. And that targeting is based not on a profile of who they are, but of determining something that's directly revnelat to their qeruy or question.
