The masses will begin to see what's going on, and anyone defending this behavior can be properly shunned while the rest of us try to solve the problem.


Anyone who hasn't understood this by now isn't going to now. They have always been and will be fodder.

Everyone, doesn't this mean they have Hillary's Emails? They capture everything sent or recieved? They could easily produce the "missing emails"

So did they not do so, because it "Was In the Interest of National Security"?


Yup.

Many here have pointed this out and there was a good article I did a thread about last year during the election cycle verifying this.

An older thread, titled, "PRISM - The Mirror That Betrays You," details how some of this works.

The fact that our intelligence apparatuses have their own internal power structure and drive that is wholly separate from any sort of authority should be enough to get millions of people in the streets. Instead, most go "meh, what are you gonna do?" and go on about their lives because, mortgage/rent, groceries, insurance bills, etc.

True, and those who control count on it.

Maybe if we give them special hats?

You pretty much nailed on societies response to this.

Most likely why us ATS members, regardless of our differences, have this deep seated shared feeling that there is much more going on in the world then we are lead to believe. Because we question and poke, occasionally a bread crumb falls out of some paperwork....

I just have to post this very enlightening CIA hacker discussion from Vault 7:


So User #71468 is working on a tool to (among other things) trash somebody's files. Handles are being stolen, files are being corrupted, its all good! It reminded me of another tool written by User #75251 back in the day with a little help from yours truly.

We were trashing data.  It was awesome.  We were even overwriting files opened for exclusive write by using direct writes to the physical drive (XP only folks, Vista and up broke the ability to do that.)  We were targeting multimedia files, and the requirements said "thou shalt interrupt playback".  

We figured trashing the files at such a low level would obviously stop the playback, right?  No bytes, no playback?  Turns out, we were wrong.  The system's filesystem read cache was happilly keeping the entire file in memory and the media player was happily playing it from the cache as if nobody had come in and barfed garbage bytes all over the clusters.  Frustration ensued.  Rage++... but what were we to do?

The answer came from a single StackOverflow post that mentioned a side-effect of opening a volume handle in a peculiar way.  Although the author of the post cautioned the technique may not be reliable, we found in our testing that it was 100% effective on our target platform (Windows XP x64).

Here's the code in question:
(omitted for length)

Once we added that function in and called it after trashing a certain number of bytes or files, we suddenly started seeing playback of media files interrupted as requested by the customer.  And it was good.

Now, with the way User #71468 is stealing handles, he may not actually need this technique.  But if he does, it will be right here waiting for him.



GATHERING intelligence? Yes, I get that-- it's what the CIA does.

BUT, deleting files and multimedia from other people's computers? I do not get that.

It smacks of evidence expunging, to me. I can't think of any legitimate reason the CIA has to develop cyber tools that trash files (evidence) -- including audio and video -- from other people's computers.

I am also curious about when "back in the day" refers to.

AND who is "the customer?"

This is the stuff conspiracy theories are made of.

CNN report, kind of creepy stuff. Phillip Mudd, former CIA Counterintelligence operative, said the CIA can collect all the tools they want, but they must have a court order to use them on American Citizens.

They will mainly use these tools on North Korea, Iran, China and Russia. (hmm). He said of course they would change the footprint, and make it look like it was Russia. (hmm)

They did specify Samsung phones, for whatever that's worth.

He talked about when we Armed Afghanistan soldiers, we didn't arm them with American arms. We armed them with Eastern European arms. (hmm)

They know it's us, but they can't prove it.

When asked if he were still working, what would he do now, Mudd said he would "find out who leaked this, why they leaked it, and hunt them down".

That was the gist of it.

We're all missing the big picture here. Clearly Paul walker was killed by the CIA

Im pretty sure I once lived in a country where the following would never be tolerated by any of the populace:

The CIA walks into your living room and bedroom and sets up a 24/7 camera feed

The CIA takes your fingerprint to have on record, despite not being guilty of a thing

The CIA essentially will sit in your car and have the ability to turn it on, off, and where your car can go



Im pretty sure if only one of the above happened before the year 2000, we would have a true revolution. All three are happening on a daily basis, and we sit and twiddle our thumbs.

Neither do I. But that doesn't mean they aren't still trying.


Or you think they are trying. CNN is not responsible for the creations of the conspiracy-minded.



Maybe that other user was right then, about you not 'getting it.'


I look at things differently than most people. So of course I am not going to understand the products of groupthink.

a reply to: knowledgehunter0986



Sure that's probably true, but it still doesn't change the fact that there is an actual reason to be "outraged"


Not really. Why should I or anyone else be outraged that CNN did not report on this in the time frame you and others see fit?



It just seems silly and "scapegoat-ey" that you are just repeating the same rhetoric to everyone when in truth you know the truth


I do know the truth. The outrage against CNN is rooted in propaganda. The gullible herd followed along just nicely.

How do you get a warrant to delete, corrupt, and 'trash' files & data on other people's computers and "steal their handles?'

Because that's what CIA hackers claim they do in the Vault 7 discussion from my previous comment: Link

With these new revelations coming out, and more to follow, does anyone else get the feeling that people behind the scenes are trying to stop something from happening? It almost seems like there is a real war going on in cyberspace between certain people or entities in the intelligence community.

It really does not matter if your left, right, or center, EVERY American should be outraged over these released files. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I was always under the impression that the CIA could not conduct intelligence gathering operations within the borders of the US.

And as to CNN...why would anyone even care about what they do or say anymore. That organization, and several others have proved that they are little more than shills pushing an agenda.
