Alleged OPSEC brief lists Democrat nominee a “insider threat”

Joe Biggs | – AUGUST 22, 2016

An alleged U.S. Army training slide is circulating online with an image of Hillary Clinton and David Petraeus listed as “Insider Security Threats” along with Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning.

According to the “U.S. Army W.T.F! moments” Facebook page, who posted a photo of the slide Sunday, the image originally came from a servicemember stationed at Missouri’s Fort Leonard Wood.

Admins for the page told the Daily Caller that they have now received two photographs of the slide in the last 6 months.

The images bares resemblance to a 2015 Justice Department slide thatsimilarly listed Snowden and fellow NSA whistleblower Thomas Drank as “those that have done us harm.”

The Army has thus far not responded to questions concerning the slide’s legitimacy.

UK surveillance powers have gone ‘further than any other Western democracy’ – MP

Britain has gone “further than any other Western democracy” in its expansion of surveillance powers and its ability to collect bulk data without justifiable reason, a British MP has said.

Joanna Cherry, a Scottish National Party (SNP) MP, made the comments in reference to the Investigatory Powers (IP) Bill, which has been introduced to extend surveillance and data-gathering laws. It will allow UK intelligence agencies to collect, store and access information about internet users.


The government says such a move is necessary to combat terrorism. Critics of the bill have branded it a “snoopers’ charter” on the grounds it infringes privacy and undermines basic human rights.

Cherry says: “At least the IP Bill is honest about the fact that it permits the collection of bulk data. However, we shouldn’t be too congratulatory of the bill as we have now gone further than any other Western democracy.”

Although surveillance powers are necessary to protect from terrorist threats, security measures need to be justified, she said.
The SNP unsuccessfully opposed the IP Bill in the House of Commons.

“Certain aspects of the bill will not survive under the European Convention on Human Rights, if we manage to stay in the EU,” Cherry argued.

“The SNP felt that the bill should be in accordance with European Union law, that we shouldn’t be going further than other Western democracies and that we were interested in having suspicion-based surveillance rather than suspicionless surveillance.”

She added: “America has rolled back from bulk collection at the very time that Britain is trying to roll out greater surveillance powers on a statutory basis.”

‘Suspicion-based surveillance’ is when intelligence services have an interest in a particular person or organization that they wish to target using surveillance. In contrast, ‘suspicionless surveillance’ refers to the collection of bulk data without any justifiable reason why the data is needed.

An independent barrister charged with reviewing counter-terrorism laws, meanwhile, has said bulk data interception is critically important to Britain’s national security.

David Anderson QC, who serves as the government’s Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, published a report on the controversial practice of mass data collection on Friday.

“Bulk interception is of ‘vital utility’ to the security and intelligence agencies and that alternative methods fall short of providing the same results,” says Anderson.


He also claimed data collection is important for a range of intelligence operations “including counter-terrorism, counter-espionage and counter-proliferation.”

“There are likely to be cases where no effective alternative is available,”he stressed.

Prime Minister Theresa May, who championed such powers while serving as David Cameron’s home secretary, said she is “grateful to David Anderson for this report, which follows a detailed and thorough review in which the government has provided unfettered and unprecedented access to the most sensitive information about our security and intelligence agencies’ capabilities.”

She said the investigation had shown that the bulk provisions in the Investigatory Powers Bill “are of crucial importance to our security and intelligence agencies.”

“These powers often provide the only means by which our agencies are able to protect the British public from the most serious threats that we face,” she said.

“It is vital that we retain them, while ensuring their use is subject to robust safeguards and world-leading oversight which are enshrined in the Investigatory Powers Bill.”

Snowden: NSA Can Tell ‘Life Patterns,’ ‘Get Inside Your Thought Process’


So-called whistleblower Edward Snowden stated in an interview with “Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams that aired on NBC on Wednesday that an intelligence service in the National Security Agency with “significant funding and a real technological research team can tell someone’s “life patterns,” including locations, voice recordings, and pictures from their cell phone and that this process is “unregulated and uncontrolled.”

Snowden expanded on this point by stating that private contractors could take information from the NSA without them knowing.  He added that NSA programs he had access to as an analyst allowed him to see the “thought process” of an individual as they drafted online correspondence, including words in an e-mail that an individual wrote and erased before the message was sent, which Snowden said allowed the government to see “the way you think.”

Snowden said he takes the danger terrorism poses “very seriously,” and told Williams that his grandfather was in the Pentagon on 9/11, but believed that “too much faith” was placed in intelligence sources, and cited the “false premises” he said were used to justify the Iraq War.  He did have high praise for the US military who he described as “better men” than himself.  Snowden also responded to criticism that he should not have leaked the information about the NSA, but should have gone through “proper channels” by saying he did raise concerns to NSA employees, but was told to keep them quiet.

Julian Assange Special: Do Wikileaks have the email that’ll put Clinton in Prison? (EP 376)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground with Julian Assange. We talk to the founder of Wikileaks about how his recent DNC leaks have no connection to Russia. Plus what are Hillary Clinton’s connections to ISIS and Russia.


What Mr. Assange hasn’t touched on is the fact that the AG Lynch meets with the husband of the FBI target just before the results of that 11/2 year long investigation on a tarmac in Phoenix and knew what the outcome was going to be. That’s why she said she would accept whatever recommendation was made by the FBI. Wonder what Slick Willy threatened her with??? There was more to it than a job offer, I’d bet my life on jt. FYI anyone not aware of it, Comey and Lynch worked at the same lawfirm together. The same lawfirm responsible for doing the Clinton’s taxes. Also, this is not the first time James Comey has run interference for the Clintons. It’s a pattern that has been repeated numerous times over the years. CORRUPTION HERE GOES DEEPER THAN ONE COULD EVER IMAGINE.

so, he can’t leave the embassy at all?
Come Visit Waikiki

the only way she wins is if it’s rigged.

I don’t have complete trust in Assange but he does come off as very smart and thorough. He gives lots of examples and makes lots of sense. Wasserman Schultz and the DNC CFO and COO quit because of him. Of course Crooked Hillary hired Wasserman Schultz on immediately. Massive voter fraud is Hillary’s only chance.

Destroying Qaddafi was a total disaster, Hillary is incompetent and dangerous. Voting for her is stupid. She does not deserve it.
Michael Johnson

It comes to light now that Clinton DELIBERATELY left our ambassador to Libya to die! Why? Because he, among others, found out that ISIS was given stinger missiles. He told the state department that he could buy some of them back, and was awaiting a reply, not knowing that she was the one who authorized it in the first place

‘Absurd’ election rhetoric: Kremlin, Assange slam Clinton for blaming DNC leaks on Russia

While US media and politicians keep crying ‘wolf’ – or Russia – over the DNC email hack without providing any proof, Moscow called the accusations ‘absurd’. WikiLeaks refused to reveal its sources and promised new leaks before the November vote.

Some 20,000 DNC emails were made public by WikiLeaks on July 22, revealing a close working relationship between the party and some mainstream media figures, as well as collusion with the Hillary Clinton campaign to sideline Bernie Sanders, her challenger for the presidential nomination.

The DNC replaced Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on the eve of the party’s convention in Philadelphia – she immediately got a post with the Clinton campaign – and fired back with accusations that Russia was behind the hack and the leaks, accusing Moscow of backing Republican nominee Donald Trump.


US media picked up the accusations, reporting them under headlines such as “Russian Intelligence Hacked DNC Emails”(NBC), “Suspected Russian hack of DNC widens” (Yahoo News),“All Signs Point to Russia Being Behind the DNC Hack,”(Motherboard), “Evidence mounts linking DNC email hacker to Russia” (The Hill) and “What we know about Russia’s role in the DNC hack” (Politifact).

Actual evidence, however, was nowhere to be found. Instead, reporters relied on insinuations such as, “there seems to be widespread agreement among cybersecurity experts and professionals” (Politifact) that Russia was somehow responsible.

Other experts cited as “evidence” of Russian involvement the fact that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange hosted a show on RT – but without noting that the 11-episode run aired in 2012.

“I’m somewhat taken aback by the hyperventilation on this,” US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said last week.

Claims of Russian involvement actually go back to mid-June, when the first DNC documents appeared on the blog of Guccifer 2.0, a hacker who claimed responsibility for the breach. CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity firm hired by the DNC to investigate the breach, pointed the finger at Moscow – again, without any proof. CrowdStrike’s chief technology officer Dmitri Alperovitch, who publicized the claims, is also a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative.

The Kremlin dismissed the charges that Russia was behind DNC hack as “quite absurd,” with presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov pointing out what he called the “American style” of casting blame first, then investigating afterwards.

“We in Russia are used to investigating first, before accusing anyone of anything. We believe it is more logical and more correct,” Peskov said.

“Such statements by Ms. Clinton are typical pre-election rhetoric,” Peskov told reporters Monday. “There is nothing tangible in her accusations, and we believe their character is more emotional.”

“The leaked information is very interesting, indicating specific actions to manipulate public opinion during the election campaign,” the Kremlin spokesman added. In this case, there are attempts to cover up these manipulations by demonizing Russia again, which we feel is improper. Russia does not interfere, and never will interfere, in the internal affairs – especially the elections – of any other countries, including the US.”

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has also called DNC accusations an attempt to deflect attention from the contents of the leaked documents. Speaking to CNN from the Ecuadorean embassy in London, where he sought asylum in June 2012, Assange rejected speculation that Russia was behind the hack.

“Well, what sort of question is that? I am a journalist. We don’t reveal our sources,” Assange told CNN’s ‘New Day’ host Poppy Harlow. “The goal of WikiLeaks as a media organization is to educate the public, to turn a dark world into a lighter world through the process of education, and we’re doing it.”

Assange also addressed criticism from some quarters – including NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden – that the leaked documents contained private information that should have been redacted to protect the innocent, ruling out any efforts to redact future leaks.

“We are talking about the ruling party of the US and its material, not private information,” he said. “WikiLeaks is not going to be tampering with evidence which will almost certainly be used in several successive court cases.”

Statements from DNC and the Clinton campaign officials painting WikiLeaks and Trump as “Kremlin agents” have been met with derision by the GOP nominee, who called it a “new joke in town.” Others have likewise poked fun at the Cold War-era hysteria, playfully suggesting that “Russian hackers” were behind the color scheme of US athletes’ new Olympic uniforms.

Although both candidates received a post-convention “bounce” in the polls, a daily survey by the
University of Southern California and Los Angeles Times showed Trump with a four point lead over Clinton at the end of July.

EXCLUSIVE – NSA Architect: Agency Has ALL of Clinton’s Deleted Emails

PHILADELPHIA – The National Security Agency (NSA) has “all” of Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails and the FBI could gain access to them if they so desired, William Binney, a former highly placed NSA official, declared in a radio interview broadcast on Sunday.

Speaking as an analyst, Binney raised the possibility that the hack of the Democratic National Committee’s server was done not by Russia but by a disgruntled U.S. intelligence worker concerned about Clinton’s compromise of national security secrets via her personal email use.

Binney was an architect of the NSA’s surveillance program. He became a famed whistleblower when he resigned on October 31, 2001, after spending more than 30 years with the agency.

He was speaking on this reporter’s Sunday radio program, “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and Philadelphia’s NewsTalk 990 AM.

Binney referenced testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in March 2011 by then-FBI Director Robert S. Mueller in which Meuller spoke of the FBI’s ability to access various secretive databases “to track down known and suspected terrorists.”

Stated Binney: “Now what he (Mueller) is talking about is going into the NSA database, which is shown of course in the (Edward) Snowden material released, which shows a direct access into the NSA database by the FBI and the CIA. Which there is no oversight of by the way. So that means that NSA and a number of agencies in the U.S. government also have those emails.”

“So if the FBI really wanted them they can go into that database and get them right now,” he stated of Clinton’s emails as well as DNC emails.

Asked point blank if he believed the NSA has copies of “all” of Clinton’s emails, including the deleted correspondence, Binney replied in the affirmative.

“Yes,” he responded. “That would be my point. They have them all and the FBI can get them right there.”

Binney surmised that the hack of the DNC could have been coordinated by someone inside the U.S. intelligence community angry over Clinton’s compromise of national security data with her email use.

And the other point is that Hillary, according to an article published by the Observerin March of this year, has a problem with NSA because she compromised Gamma material.  Now that is the most sensitive material at NSA. And so there were a number of NSA officials complaining to the press or to the people who wrote the article that she did that. She lifted the material that was in her emails directly out of Gamma reporting. That is a direct compromise of the most sensitive material at the NSA. So she’s got a real problem there. So there are many people who have problems with what she has done in the past. So I don’t necessarily look at the Russians as the only one(s) who got into those emails.

The Observer defined the GAMMA classification:

GAMMA compartment, which is an NSA handling caveat that is applied to extraordinarily sensitive information (for instance, decrypted conversations between top foreign leadership, as this was).
