CIA Whistleblower Alleges Intelligence Failure

When wayward contract employees at the CIA began pilfering snacks from vending machines back in 2013, the Office of the Inspector General sprang into action. Surveillance cameras went up, the culprits were nabbed, and all lost their jobs.

From start to finish, the case of the $3,314.40 in stolen snacks lasted two months.

When more serious allegations of wrongdoing arise at the CIA, though, inspectors may be far less speedy, especially when their findings could embarrass the Langley, Va., spy agency.

The NSA Is Still Spying On All Americans …

The man who designed the NSA’s electronic intelligence gathering system (Bill Binney) sent us an affidavit which he signed on the Fourth of July explaining that the NSA is still spying on normal, every day Americans … and not focused on stopping terror attacks (I’ve added links to provide some background):

The attacks on September 11, 2001 completely changed how the NSA conducted surveillance …. the individual liberties preserved in the U.S. Constitution were no longer a consideration. In October 2001, the NSA began to implement a group of intelligence activities now known as the “President’s Surveillance Program.”

The President’s Surveillance Program involved the collection of the full content of domestic e-mail traffic without any of the privacy protections built into [the program that Binney had designed]. This was done under the authorization of Executive Order 12333. This meant that the nation’s e-mail could be read by NSA staff members without the approval of any court or judge.

Fast And Furious Whistleblower Says He Became An ‘Enemy Of The State’

 

It’s one of the longest running Congressional investigations of our time: the probe into Fast and Furious. The government’s secret operation to watch … as thousands of weapons were trafficked to Mexico’s killer drug cartels. In many respects, the story began when federal agent John Dodson agreed to an interview with me in March of 2011. It was highly unusual, if not unprecedented, for a sitting federal agent to speak out in such a strong way. In the latest episode of “Full Measure,” investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson catches up, six years later.

John Dodson/ATF Agent: Part of my mission with the ATF in Phoenix was to combat a legal firearms trafficking to the Mexican drug cartels. Somehow, in order to achieve that goal, the strategy that had been adopted was to facilitate and allow the illegal firearms trafficking to the Mexican drug cartels. We were essentially flooding the border region with firearms from the U,S. civilian market, and then tracking and tallying the results as they were used in crimes on both sides of the border.

Attkisson:  “We,” meaning federal agents, who are supposed to be stopping the trafficking.

Dodson: Yes, ma’am, meaning the federal agency that was in charge of combating that very thing.

Whistleblower: ‘Most Probable’ That NSA Has Recordings of Trump Phone Calls With James Comey

William Binney, a former highly placed National Security Agency (NSA) official turned whistleblower, surmised it is “very likely, in fact, most probable” that the NSA has recordings of President Donald Trump’s phone conversations with former FBI Director James Comey.

“It is very likely, in fact, most probable that NSA does have those tapes,” stated Binney.

Binney continued: “I think you already have examples of it where you had conversations that President Trump had with the president of Mexico and also with Australia. All of those have been leaked. Also phone calls involving [former National Security Advisor Michael] Flynn and so on and the White House.”

“And the point is here, you see, I don’t know of any time that the president makes a phone call that is not encrypted. So that means that the people who are intercepting the president have to be able to decrypt it. And the people who provide the encryption and the keys to the systems to be used are NSA,” he added.

Trump Signs VA Reform Bill, Following Through On Campaign Promise

President Trump on Friday signed Veterans Affairs reform legislation meant to protect whistleblowers while making it easier to fire problematic employees at the department.

The Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act passed by Congress earlier this month streamlines the process to remove, demote, or suspend VA employees for poor performance or misconduct. In addition, it authorizes the VA secretary to recoup any bonuses awarded to employees who have acted improperly.

Ron Paul Interviewing Edward Snowden Is The Best Thing You’ll See

“Saying that you don’t care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say.”

That comment was made by famed whistleblower Edward Snowden during a recent interview on the Ron Paul Liberty Report. In his conversation with Dr. Paul and Daniel McAdams, published Tuesday, an articulate Snowden discusses the true meaning of freedom, the nature of the deep state, and even his upbringing as a child of a government family.

Reality Winner Is A Loser, And So Is U.S. Secrecy

Secrets: That 25-year-old Reality Winner — yes, that’s her real name — was caught giving out top-secret information is no great surprise. After all, she is a far-left anti-Trump activist who called him an “orange fascist” and a “piece of s**t,” and once tweeted to rapper Kanye West to suggest he make a T-shirt saying “Being white is terrorism.” (For the record, Winner is herself white.)

She used the hashtags “Resist” and “NeverMyPresident” on her Facebook page and, as the Daily Caller notes, “appears to be a supporter of Bernie Sanders and other progressive icons, such as Bill Maher and Michael Moore.”

No, these are not crimes. But taken together, they might indicate at least some possible questions about her trustworthiness for a post with top-secret access — especially working under a president she clearly despises and “resists.” Yet, as an employee for National Security Agency contractor Pluribus International Corp. in Georgia, Winner, a former Air Force linguist, had top-secret clearance.
