In this collaborative report with Newsy, we detail how a number of American active-duty servicemen were members of the Iron March forum, an online gathering place for violent neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

You can find more information about this massive data leak, including how to acquire, access, and analyze the information, in our recent guide, “Massive White Supremacist Message Board Leak: How to Access and Interpret the Data“.

    Has any analysis been undertaken to investigate whether members of other nations’ armed forces were active on this forum?

      Tapir :
      “Canada” might want to start building a wall.
      USA gets much crazier they are going to be looking at an illegal immigration outbreak of epic proportions.
      Those dirty Americans will be crossing by land and sea to take the Canadian jobs and leach off of its social service welfare programs.
      Judging by the rate of incarceration in the U.S. it seems a certain they will bring along what will amount to a vast spike in crime. Rape and murder are in large supply in the U.S. after all.
      Make Canada great again , start the wall , keep out the crime ridden Americans. Set up heightened security at the border and build camps and holding pens now to get ahead of this certain problem as it seems inevitable.
