Want to protect against surveillance through your iPhones, Android
devices, Wi-Fi routers and Samsung televisions? Update, update, update.
WikiLeaks this week published a trove of documents that appears to detail how the Central Intelligence Agency successfully hacked a wide variety of tech products, including iPhones, Android devices, Wi-Fi routers and Samsung televisions.
That’s just about every major category of consumer electronics. So what does that mean for you if you own one — or several — of these gadgets? . . . Read Complete Report

“WASHINGTON — The C.I.A. scrambled on Wednesday to assess and contain the damage from the release by WikiLeaks of thousands of documents that cataloged the agency’s cyberspying capabilities, temporarily halting work on some projects while the F.B.I. turned to finding who was responsible for the leak. . . .”
“. . . The documents, taken at face value, suggest that American spies had designed hacking tools that could breach almost anything connected to the internet — smartphones, computers, televisions — and had even found a way to compromise Apple and Android devices. But whether the C.I.A. had successfully built and employed them to conduct espionage remained unclear on Wednesday. . .” Read Complete Report

Juan Pablo Escobar Henao, son of notorious Medellín cartel drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar, now says his father “worked for the CIA.”
“… Where his first book primarily covered Escobar, the man as a father, Marroquín’s second — which has just been released in Argentina — delves into the kingpin’s “international ties of corruption in which my father had an active participation, among them with the American CIA,” he said in a recent interview. . . .”
“… If the CIA trafficking cocaine into the United States sounds like some tin foil conspiracy theory, think again. Their alleged role in the drug trade was exposed in 1996 in an explosive investigative series “Dark Alliance” by Gary Webb for the San Jose Mercury News. The investigation, headed up by Webb revealed ties between the CIA, Nicaraguan Contras and the crack cocaine trade ravaging African-American communities. . . .” Read Complete Report

Bo Gritz Interviewed on POW/MIA, Drugs, CIA, USA Debt. and other topics.
Published on Dec 15, 2010
Colonel James Bo Gritz the real Rambo, commanded detachment “B-36,” U.S. Army Special Forces. With 62 decorations for valor, Gritz was the most decorated Green Beret of the Vietnam War. In the 1980s Gritz undertook a series of private trips into Southeast Asia, purportedly to locate United States prisoners of war which as part of the Vietnam War POW/MIA issue some believed were still being held by Laos and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

According to the New York Times, documents obtained under Freedom of Information Act indicate that some 5,100 munitions containing chemical and nerve agent compounds were destroyed by coalition troops during the occupation. But Saddam Hussein’s regime possessed on the order of 50,000 such munitions which it received in deals with Russia between about 1979 and 1991. Many of these “Munitions are unaccounted for in areas of Iraq now under control of ISIS”, says the NYT (in a sidebar).
As you will see below, both sides of the aisles in both Houses of Congress had the same info (provided by CIA, NSA, and MI6) before voting to invade Iraq and depose Saddam Hussein. And that info existed before the first Iraqi war.
Iraq used chemical and nerve agents at least ten times between 1979 and 1991, including against Iraqi citizens in Kurdish territories and against Iranian soldiers. They may have used a few mustard gas munitions in Kuwait as well.
In Kurdistan, they used Russian made “yellow rain” nerve agents on entire small cities of their own citizens, killing thousands, including women and children. They were preparing giant chemical artillery shells for launch from the Bull gun (Project Babylon)that could reach Israel from western Iraq.
Dr. Rihab Rashida Taha ranks among the most important of a new breed of Third World weapons designers who were highly nationalistic, western-educated and willing to violate any international norms or scientific ethics. Taha worked hard to contribute to Iraqi weapons program although she was not a gifted student as Dr. John Turner, the head of the university’s biology department in England, recalls. As a result of Taha’s hard work she became known as the mother of all third world biological weapons programs. It was Taha who sold the idea of an Iraqi biological weapons program to Saddam Hussein and was given an award for her work in biological weapons, specifically the development of anthrax and botulinum weapons by Saddam Hussein. Moreover, she has been held up as an example to Iraqi women interested in science.
Taha first rose to prominence in the Western media after being named in a 2003 British intelligence dossier, released to the public by Prime Minister Tony Blair, on Iraq’s biological, chemical and nuclear capability. The dossier alleged that Taha had played a leading role in the manufacture of anthrax and other biological agents. It was this dossier that triggered the chain of events that led to the death of British UN weapons inspector David Kelly, who was accused of telling a BBC reporter that some of the intelligence had been manipulated.
What of other microbiologists who might have had both qualifications and connections to weaponization efforts?
David Kelly would be added to the list in 2004. Since then, another 21 prominent scientists, researchers, and administrators in the field have suffered similar circumstances or strange deaths or disappearances. Dead Scientists and Microbiologists Master List (Rense). And that is just up to January, 2005
And what of “Doctor Germ”, Rihab Rashid Taha? She is free. But we won’t have to worry much about her supporting ISIS. Women with an education are an abomination in the eyes of ISIS.
The so-called “Ethnic Bomb” has been a goal in biological warfare labs since at least WWII. It was also the central theme of several science fiction and thriller novels, including one by Dune author, Frank Herbert
From “Signs Of The Times” (SOTT.net)
“But the scientist who was working to make this possible, microbiologist Ri, has vanished after leaving his lab complex deep underground in the Chuba-ri Chemical Corp. in the city of Anbyon. The site is heavily guarded.
“Ri was last seen in his lab late in June(2003). On the last weekend of that month, he said he was going to visit what is believed to be the nerve center of North Korea’s biological warfare research program. It is concealed under a mountain near Sukho, close to the Chinese border. It is there that the “whites-only” ethnic bomb is being developed.
“It is where Ri developed other biological weapons. Just as Iraq’s notorious “Dr. Germ,” Dr. Rihad Taha, used prisoners to test out her biological weapons, similar experiments are conducted at Sukho. It is these experiments that could lay him open to charges of war crimes—if he has fallen into the hands of the West.
“But at least one person who knew Ri—Dr. Norbert Vollersten, who worked in North Korea and now leads international demonstrations against the Kim regime—believes that Ri would have anticipated the possibility of facing trial.
“There is every possibility that he would have brought with him important documents listing the stage of the research he was engaged upon,” Vollersten said. “He would trade them for a new life in the United States.”
“There is a precedent. After World War II, top Japanese scientists who had conducted germ experiments on U.S. and British prisoners were granted immunity from prosecution if they agreed to reveal their work to scientists at Fort Detrick. Many of those scientists were later granted U.S. citizenship and new identities.”
“When three journalists from The [New York] Times visited Al Muthanna in 2013, a knot of Iraqi police officers and soldiers guarded the entrance. Two contaminated bunkers — one containing cyanide precursors and old sarin rockets — loomed behind. The area where Marines had found mustard shells in 2008 was out of sight, shielded by scrub and shimmering heat.
“The Iraqi troops who stood at that entrance are no longer there. The compound, never entombed, is now controlled by the Islamic State.”

Back in March serious allegations came out of the Senate that the CIA was monitoring and even hacking Senate computers. They were denied vehemently at the time by CIA director John Brennan, who went so far as to say “that’s just beyond the scope of reason.”
Unsurprisingly, of course, the CIA has now come out saying that, yes, they did in fact spy on Senate aides’ computers. Oh, and that they’re sorry. Very sorry.
This is stuff that would have been a major scandal not too long ago, causing a public outcry for the heads of those responsible.
Phone Call Metadata Betrays Sensitive Info – Study
Identities of cannabis grower, woman seeking an abortion and MS sufferer inferred in study that confirms danger of widespread access to metadata
from: The Guardian
Warnings that phone call “metadata” can betray detailed information about your life has been confirmed by research at Stanford University. Researchers there successfully identified a cannabis cultivator, multiple sclerosis sufferer and a visitor to an abortion clinic using nothing more than the timing and destination of their phone calls.
Jonathan Mayer and Patrick Mutchler, the researchers behind the finding, used data gleaned from 546 volunteers to assess the extent to which information about who they had called and when revealed personally sensitive information.

Star in a Jar: 13 Year Old Achieves Fusion Reaction in School Lab
To Jamie Edwards, a 13 year old student from Penwortham, England, setting the record of being the youngest person to build a nuclear fusion reactor was more important than video games or girls. That last part will probably change within a couple years, but his enthusiasm for science is very real and, for now, he’s a record holder.
Of course, that also means he’s on the radar: Will he be a NASA scientist delving into the workings of the solar system or will he be kept under constant CIA surveillance lest his brain power fall under the control of some nefarious terrorist organization, like, say Disney World?
Beginning in 1974, the U.S. intelligence community provided the public with a broad selection of foreign news reports, updated daily. These were collected and translated by the Central Intelligence Agency’s Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS), which was reconstituted in 2004 as the Open Source Center (OSC).
But the CIA has now terminated public access to those news reports, as of December 31. The Open Source Center cut off its feed to the National Technical Information Service’s World News Connection, which was the conduit for public access to these materials (through paid subscriptions). . . .
