IWPCHI: February 1 2017, 5:35 a.m.

It seems to us a bit strange that you refrained from investigating the FBI’s deep involvement in the torture of suspected “terrorists” at the CIA’s secret “Black Site” prisons.

They call it “ethical” journalism. I skimmed over all those toothless new reports about the “new” FBI leaks and, once again, all theIntercept has been doing so far is “ethically” speaking to “words” and “concepts” and talking about stuff that everybody knows and/or would naturally infer. Then, they will go into their self-feeding “Oh, look! Politicians are lying again! … “, “Trump this, Trump that … ” loops.

If they don’t have whatever it takes to report about sh!t in ways that would involve direct consequences and bring about changes now and/or the future, they could “lose” one of those FBI manuals or a copy and let it resurface at wikileaks. I am sure there are journos out there that would truthfully speak truth to power with some teeth, instead of abstractly and -always rethorically- considering “how well the bureau is living up to ‘their’ ‘abstract’ commitments …”

// __ Obama Killed a 16-Year-Old American in Yemen. Trump Just Killed His 8-Year-Old Sister.
Glenn Greenwald

Even though I don’t agree with any of it and I know that they don’t give a sh!t about how much “collateral damage” may be in their way, I took the time to read twice Glenn’s article and the NY Times ones, trying to figure out what they gained out of it:

// __ U.S. Commando Killed in Yemen in Trump’s First Counterterrorism Operation

The military’s Central Command said in an earlier statement on Sunday that “similar operations have produced intelligence on Al Qaeda logistics, recruiting and financing efforts.” In previous raids

// __ A Raid on ISIS Yields a Trove of Intelligence

in Iraq, Syria and Somalia, commandos have recovered laptop computers, thumb drives and cellphones that yielded important information about militant leaders’ locations, activities and associates.

yet, no where is clear why they had to kill 30+ people. It is all about what they see as hypothetical ends justifying the means at any cost.

Two weeks after the killing of Awlaki, a separate CIA drone strike in Yemen killed his 16-year-old American-born son, Abdulrahman, along with the boy’s 17-year-old cousin and several other innocent Yemenis.

… the boy’s 17-year-old cousin and the several other innocent Yemenis have names and had lived so long until they were killed by USG because that “hit” gave them some points in their computer games …

The New York Times yesterday reported:
(nytimes.com/2017/01/29/world/middleeast/american-commando-killed-in-yemen-in-trumps-first-counterterror-operation.html)
that military officials had been planning and debating the raid for months under the Obama administration, but Obama officials decided to leave the choice to Trump.

For Christ’s sake, how much multitasking do you expect Mr “Yes we can” to do?!? He never said or implied “Yes I can”. He was packing the hell out of the White House and at the same time busy bombing people all the way to the end of his term. Yet, having left “unfinished jobs” should be enough to claim back his Nobel Peace Prize.

computer materials inside the house that could contain clues about future terrorist plots

… “could” contain “clues” … as perceived by the genocidally, psychopathic USG. Trump, just doesn’t care about political correctness (which doesn’t have to be a bad thing, really). In fact, let’s keep the count straight. So, far he has killed, how many? 30 individuals? I would bet one of my balls Trump will start less wars, kill less people than Mr. “Yes we can”, “it turns out I am better at killing people than I could have ever imagined” did.

At some point during the Vietnam war they stopped the head counts, because, they said, it was “immoral”. Yeah, right! USG genocidally invades a country based on lies and then talks about morality! I think head counts are alright. At the end of the day, this is what it is all about, right? You kill one of our own and we will kill 30 of yours. I know, you don’t even have to kill one of our own.

Some of you have had issues when I compare USG with Nazi Germany during WWII
a) USG and their Western NATO acolytes have 8 timed the genocidal ratio of Nazi Germany during WWII (I know, I know Muslim people don’t count anyway, right? Oh, no, wait! Isn’t that the same Nazi mindset?)
b) When Nazis were doing their “freedom loving” they didn’t go half way around the world to mess with people who couldn’t defend themselves on an equal basis, but fought on Britain, Russia, France, … head on and all at once and kept fighting even after Russia raised the killing ratio to 1:1. Why is it so hard for USG and their NATO allies to find Russia and China on a map?
c) After the election I heard someway say “our secret service will not let someone like Trump be the POTUS” I wondered what she meant, since Trump had been already elected. I thought she meant that they had something on him that they could use to mess with his candidacy (they had already posted on the Washington Post nudes of his wife, mother of his son), but a friend clarified to me “no, she meant they would kill him” … Let’s see, now, how gringos fair in that department:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_presidential_assassination_attempts_and_plots

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attempted_assassination_of_Donald_Trump

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_assassination_attempts_on_Adolf_Hitler

Even semi-god, Nobel Prize in Physics Max Planck lost his son Erwin in one of those attempts:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erwin_Planck

at least eight women and seven children, ages 3 to 13, had been killed in the raid

Again, those women and children were human beings with names … We should not play their “they are less of a people than we are” game. Pronouncing Arabic is not that hard. The IPA would greatly help with it. Their names should be written in Arabic, with their English (and optimally IPA) transliteration.

And Trump notoriously vowed during the campaign to target not only terrorists but also their families.

Even mobsters understand you should not do this. But again, it is not even primarily about Trump, but USG as a whole and “We the people”. Politicians do this because they know they can get away with it. “‘The’ land of ‘the’ free and ‘the’ ‘brave'” has “democratically” gone down the toilet.

I have had to admit sooner than I expected I was wrong. I did expect Western MSM and US IT companies to keep being up Trump’s @ss, but, no they have, once again, paid homage to their emperor, way quicker than I ever expected.

“In order to protect Americans, we must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward our country and its founding principles,” the draft reads, justifying this blanket prohibition.

I wonder why “Americans” think people hate “Americans” and even their “founding principles”, too? (please, could they keep the “founding fathers” out of this mess? Most probably, they would be happy to be dead for centuries already)

Probably because “Americans” have been genocidally exterminating them as if they were playing computer games and “freedom-lovingly” destroying their countries based on their playful, self-serving lies. Did “Americans” forget so fast? Is it so hard for “Americans” to at least see some possible cause and effect relationship even if they may lack those things called “humanity” and “empathy”? Now they are even making it official it will be for the oil?

Trump so far has singlehandedly done a great job at helping “Americans” take their minds our of their @ss. All of a sudden “Americans” have realized politicians lie and they even seem to care about it!

Keep pushing “Americans” once you get your heads half way out of your @ss you may realize that Royal Bitch wasn’t really that different, in fact, she had been already much worse! At least the TPP is history! Under Trump orders no one has been killed, yet! I would bet one of my balls Trump will not surpass Obama’s genocide! But, well when Obama was killing people for fun, even realizing “he was much better at killing people than he would have ever imagined” and boasting about droning “Americans” even minors in “American” soil it was all fine and dandy!

Great Lord! The New York Times used the adjective “racist” while referring to the Israeli government!

Actually, in addition to claiming Palestine as their Lebensraum and the apartheid for Muslims living in Israel, they have thorough going “laws” and “regulations” among themselves about who is more or less of a “chosen one” Nazis couldn’t match. I remember a crazy (well, coming from Israel!) story about someone who had been killed by so-called “Palestinian terrorists”, but her family could not bury her in a certain graveyard because, since she had been born in Russia, she was some sort of “lesser JeW”!

Have you ever heard of Muslims occupying high positions in the Israeli government? They are very angry with Palestinians for not doing a good job as Warsaw ghetto police for them.

They can’t help but “love” Palestinians in the same way they were “loved” by Nazis. If they could “love” those powerful European countries that abused them big time, instead of trying their with Palestinians, now pretending to be Europeans!

They say people have the rulers they deserve. Hard to tell for sure if and to the extent that may be the case, but U.S. presidential elections have showed something I’d call “the Obama effect”:

Phil Ebersole says in his blog:

Hillary Clinton was not beaten by an upsurge in votes for Donald Trump. She was beaten because she lost votes, not because Trump gained votes.

I think people are just tired of b#llsh!tting political circus orchestrated by the media, of being played by the status quo. People don’t want to remember how promising (almost Messianic) that “black” young lawyer, “fresh from Chicago” was.

Hillary didn’t have to work that hard at losing votes. Obama had formidably done that job for her and not only that, he also cleared the way for Trump:

The thing is that all those people, like the general gringo population, have their minds so unhinged from anything resembling any degree of truthfulness and/or have their heads so deep into their @ss that they have lost touch with reality. Trump seems to have at least a more realistic grasp on reality. He has publicly said that “people are so stupid they would believe anything you tell them …”. “Yes we can” proved Trump right.

That niggah, after sitting his black @ss for 12 years studying “constitutional law” at “prestigious U.S. universities” (among them Columbia University and Harvard Law School) wiped his @ss with the supposedly sacrosanct U.S. constitution, championed persecuting whistleblowers like no other president ever had, consolidated and institutionalized even more “secret laws”. … Now, isn’t that an exemplary case of crazy irrationality. I can’t imagine a Physicist denying gravity. Yet, here you have a “constitutional lawyer” “understanding” and “implementing” such things as “secret laws”, being publicly amazed at “how good at killing people” he turned out to be …

Gringos used the adjective “un-American” kind of like meaning “something contemptuously, abominably and hopelessly stupidly wrong, only lowlifes could possibly do”. Trump wants to “make ‘America’ great ‘again'”. Some may consider Obama to be “as ‘American’ as it gets”.

Supporting not only politically that the Israeli government keeps Palestine as their “Lebensraum”, but financially supporting it with “Americans'” tax payers’ monies seems to be “as ‘American’ as it gets”, too.

Glenn Greenwald -> Ricardo Camilo López: November 15 2016, 6:22 a.m.

Isn’t it clear to you yet that by sitting on and “ethically” (as you say) redacting Snowden leaks, you have effectively helped the profusely “unethical” Trump thing happen?

I found that reply so weird and shaky that I wondered if it was actually Glenn’s. I was not only considered to be (or diagnosed?) a “‘literal’ sociopath” (wasn’t Glenn a lawyer turned into journo? why would he be now diagnosing people with unknown types of “mental disorders” (which validity have been even question by psychologist themselves)?), but obviously my initial point was very selectively twisted and misconstrued.

I will proceed to reply to that post in general regardless of if he actually wrote it or someone did trying to impersonate him.

Among the documents in the Snowden archive are MANY that link thousands of Muslim Americans and Muslims around the world to terrorism or terrorism sympathizing with no evidence.
It’s certain that at least some, if not most, of the people who are discussed are innocent.

More than “most”. We all, Muslim and non-Muslim people, know very well, that we are all considered guilty “until proven otherwise” and “proving it to them” will take away your life anyway, since they need “terrorists”. Everybody, including you, knows who are the actual terrorists anyway: USG and their all-lies, who have 8-timed the genocidal ratio of Nazi Germany during WWII (what you call “wanton slaughter carried out in Iraq and Afghanistan” pointing to the collateral-murder video Manning posted unredacted, unaltered to wikileaks).

If we were to dump these documents as you suggest, we would forever destroy their reputations and their lives – as many have themselves told us – by putting a terrorism cloud over their head for all prospective employers, friends, community members to see …

I still think the overriding issue here is the “reputations” and “lives” of those subjected by that “wanton slaughter”. What did they have to say? Do you think they cared about that “terrorism cloud over their head” you mentioned? Did you care to carbon date them to see how “radioactive” they were when they were killed?

Other documents in the archive – thousands and thousands- contain the personal communications of people. If we dumped those, it would destroy their privacy, their reputation, and wreak unimaginable havoc in their lives.

Of which kind of “people”, NSA employees, police and their snitches? Aren’t they the ones who have deprived the world at large of that thing you call “privacy”? Also, after the OPM hack (the Chinese own their @ss all the way to the late 70’s when they started to use computers), it is not really about spying any more but as you call it “their reputation”.

It’s basically viewing these human beings as collateral damage on the glorious path to whatever political nirvana you fantasize would be created if we dumped these documents.

I am not trying to fantasize any kind of political nirvana and I don’t give a sh!t about politics anyway. To me it is plain and simple basic morality.

Also, you are misconstruing my points as if you don’t get what I mean. What I have been talking about for quite a long time is all those high ranking officials from the U.S. MIC whose names and actions have been carefully “redacted” from Snowden leaks I have myself pointed to you/TheIntercept very concrete cases in those SID files that were posted, as well as, (after “ethically” redacting all those documents), your way of pontificating about such matters in ways that “We the people” can’t follow.

Many other people have been questioning your “ethical” ways. John Oliver even paid himself a ticket and went all the way to Moscow with an oversized picture of his junk to teach Snowden how you talk to “We the people”.

Snowden seem to have been originally baffled, at the end he seemed to have joyfully gotten it. Once, again, why is it that two comedians (The Yes Men) have been very successful at making the most corrupt U.S. institutions change in important ways, have gotten corrupt officials behind bars and devaluated the stock shares of big corporation, while being called “cruel” and all kinds of adjectives by Western MSM?

As you can see in both cases there was concrete information about actual deeds and agents for “We the people” to go after and so they did. We all expected to prominently see Putin’s face on those reports (even though they admitted that there was nothing directly about him (but his associates)). Prime ministers’ heads and many other big wigs were chopped and defaced. Now tell us about just one single (1) case in which anything concrete has been achieved based on Snowden leaks. You are a lawyer and you well know that you can’t indict or prosecute anyone based on insipidly redacted accounts. At times I wonder if you realize you are talking about humanity and morality to politicians and police.

I have nothing but unbridled contempt for people like you who want this, knowing that only others – but not you – would have their lives destroyed by it.

I have always found ad-hominem b#llsh!t hopelessly stupid and I am squarely fine with, careless about your feelings of “unbridled contempt” towards me. Once again, it is neither about me, nor about your feelings. Probably based on your “I must be right, because I talk it right” thing, you may be making very wrong assumptions. For reasons that are not quite clear to me, USG blacklisted my @ss in the FBI criminal index, so, using your language, “having my reputation destroyed” by them is the least of my concerns:

https://ipsoscustodes.wordpress.com/2015/05/27/zersetzung-made-in-u-s-a/

so it is not exactly what you want to believe, “understand”. I have lived all my life like that. You may not have had the chance in your life to sense what is like watching people harassing and being disrespectful to your mother and imprisoning family and teachers not even referring to you in school since you were a child. However, my towering mother never taught me to hate. She would instead take such incidents to teach me about “the human condition” instead of simply telling me those kinds of people where a bunch of @ssh0l3s (of course, a little boy can’t understand “philosophy”, but now I am very thankful to her spiritually and in deed). I do feel for Muslim, persecuted people, very naturally indeed, because I am one of them.

And that’s to say nothing of the fact that doing this would directly violate the agreement our source demanded – for good reason – we enter into with him about how we would and would not treat these documents.

Well, then stop talking about “gentlemen agreements” as if they were morally grounded. Politicians protect their politician friends and so do bankers, mobsters … but those are just gentlemen agreements.

So it’s never going to happen, and screaming that our decision to treat these documents responsibly helped elect Trump or spread the Zika Virus or caused the oceans to rise won’t change that even a small amount.

Are you OK?

truth and peace and love,

WHEN FBI CANT CRACK PHONE GOES TO ISRAELI CELLEBRITIES

~
Am I the only one who has noticed how theIntercept has been making “no comments” articles all those relating to actual individuals/agencies behind their write ups?

It may just be a mere temporal coincidence, but that started happening after that article about that NSA idiot who called himself “the Socrates of the NSA”. We figured out real quick who that idiot was.

// __ WHEN THE FBI HAS A PHONE IT CAN’T CRACK, IT CALLS THESE ISRAELI HACKERS
by Kim Zetter October 31 2016, 11:12 a.m.

https://theintercept.com/2016/10/31/fbis-go-hackers/?comments=1#comments

… since [cell phones] can yield not only detailed logs about a user’s activities, interests, and communications, but also, in many cases, map the user’s whereabouts over weeks and months to produce a pattern of life.

Come on, theIntercept! Be a bit educating to your readers. That sentence is missing the important clarifying coda:

… since [cell phones] can yield … user’s whereabouts over weeks and months to produce a pattern of life based on details logs traced and stratified from their GPS capabilities, which can be easily thwarted by placing your cell phone in a Faraday cage, simply a metal encasing and the NSA, GHQ, USG and their allies can’t do sh!t about it

… which siphons data directly from a phone’s flash memory chip. This can include deleted SMS messages and call histories as well as data collected by the phone and apps that the user is unaware is being collected.

Hmm! How come no one has come up with the idea of using a totally encrypted Debian-live based version for phone use running entirely from RAM? I think ubuntu has a phone version, but unfortunately they have started to put on sale their souls

Those Israeli snitching smart @sses will surely have a hard time fighting Physics

… That’s because some vendors — Cellebrite won’t say which ones, but Apple isn’t among them — ship a sample of their new phones to Cellebrite three months before they’re released, giving Cellebrite engineers a head start in cracking the devices.

“Cellebrite won’t say which ones, but Apple isn’t among them” …

OK, as you should have figured out by now we could be lying to you, since we are not supposed to tell you anyway, because our sugar daddies and those powerful governments we make good money from have gagged ordered us, but I will tell you that much …

Also, had you informed yourself well, with some tech monkey out there, you should have learned that there are just a few of those chips out of which all boards are made based on basic principles, so you don’t have to do all of them, Apple doesn’t have to be “among them” …

The company says it has been able to “crack the code to the screen locks” on a number of phone models, allowing it to access data on the phones without a password.

Hmm! Who would have known that making good money was that easy! Every script kiddie knows how to bypass windows with a free knoppix live CD, remove its admin password and reset it to whatever you want. In fact, whith a bit of C code (to mess with the filesystem without changing files’ metadata) you could make tacitly impossible to Windows and Microsoft to notice anything at all

How did they learn about it? Well:

1) you get a new Windows box and before calling MS “to activate it”
2) you boot it from a live CD
3) dump the BIOS
4) rsync all file systems onto similarly formatted partitions
5) run *nix find to created CSV files with all metadata and the md5sum of all files
6) make those files read on, with chwon and attrib
7) call MS and tell them your mom knows well you are a good kid … in order for them to let you “activate” your box
8) once your thing is running (preferably before and after connecting it to the Internet) repeat [2-5]
9) take those files to a different box and import them into a postgreSQL data base to compare them

you will see exactly which files where changed and how, and your mom will still think you are a good kid

… carriers like Verizon and AT&T like to customize the branded phones they offer customers by tweaking the operating system to disable and enable different features

Hmm! One of the nice things about physical reality is that, as they say, what works for the goose works for the gander. Oh! I meant to say if [1-9] works for MS, it will also work for Verizon, AT&T, Apple phones …

So the customers, Cellebrite won’t say which ones, asked for a way to show courts that data hadn’t been altered after it was removed from a phone

I am curious about the technical aspects of that part and willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. What exactly did they “show to courts” as a way to prove what?
