Doha used its money to cover up its crimes and manipulations. It sought to influence international media to achieve its vile schemes and plots. A leader of Alt-Right, famous movement based in the United States, exposed Hamadeen’s scheme.
Mike Cernovich, a right-wing American social media personality, revealed Tamim bin Hamad in his movie “Blood Money”, which included Qatar’s tactics to influence the western public opinion through paying money to journalists, activists and lobbyists.
Many political scholars commented on the movie and its content. For Instance, David Reaboi, a consultant in national security and political warfare, wrote for the Security Studies Group (SSG): "the new film (Blood Money) deals with how the tiny Gulf Emirate of Qatar funds lobbyists, media outlets, think tanks to advance its agenda in Washington at the expense of the US and our allies. It explains, through this case study, how the foreign influence game works inside the Beltway".
The movie exposed that Doha spent a huge wealth to influence three main countries:
The US was the largest country that received Hamadeen’s funds, as Qatar recruited those who work at Washington’s prominent think tanks. Qatar paid $24 million to Brookings in order to support Doha’s agendas and decisions.
France was also among the countries that received Hamadeen’s funds. Hamadeen Owned 13% of Lagardère Group and funded 17 TV channels. It used them in countering criticism and accusations.
Spain also received suspicious funds from Doha. Qatar bought 8% shares of PRISA media group. This move saved the group from collapse in the stock market by €64 million. Hamadeen aimed at exploiting the group’s influence over Europe.
