She is going to prison but a phishing attack gets your foot in the door, it does not give you 100% control of the system and it does not mean they had access to anything regarding the actual votes.

Last time I read all machines were supposed to have zero access to the internet... so I do not think this document (assuming its real) is anything more than confirmation that come election times the big boys try to get a leg up on the next leadership group.

eta: A phishing attack is kind of like a jehovahs witness knocking on your door, it will get the door open... doesnt mean they will burn your porn stash.

She did an excellent job of making her "intent" known at the time !!

This is off topic, but I just want to say something about her name. I think she was probably an "accident" born out of wedlock to a single woman. Her mother, holding the newborn in her arms, looked down at her, sighed, and said, "this is reality"...."Oh, hey! I think I'll just call her that. Good name as any."

I think Vasa probably is right. She was fast-tracked into Pluribus.

Total agreement. It seems more was found out in a few hours than was conducted during her clearance check. One would think the name alone would have raised an eyebrow minimum.


So you would support the discrimination of someones name?

You would use someones birth given name against them for a job?

Thats the exact reason the Right has such a bad rep, things like that right there. Hence why you see documentaries like freakonomics show that 2 people with the same resume will get different responses based on their first name, Jason vs. Jamal.

I mean who cares what her politics are, she's going to prison.

But since you brought it up... the document does not state that voting machines were hacked. It states that the Russian government hacked voter REGISTRATION systems.

And you think its not possible ?




These sensitive, clandestine operations are "tightly controlled departmental activities run by a small group of specially selected people" within the Defense Department, said Sullivan, who exercises authority over all Pentagon counterintelligence activities. The investigative branches of the three services -- the Army's Counterintelligence Corps, the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service -- have done secret offensive counterintelligence operations for years, and now DIA has been given the authority.

The purpose of an offensive counterintelligence operation is not criminal prosecution, which would be the goal if the target were an American recruited by a foreign power to be an agent in this country. In such an investigation, DIA officers would work with the FBI to gather evidence for use in an indictment and a trial.

In strategic offensive counterintelligence operations, a foreign intelligence officer is the target, and the main goals most often are "to gather information, to make something happen . . . to thwart what the opposition is trying to do to us and to learn more about what they're trying to get from us," Sullivan said. In the case of terrorists, the object would be to identify people who might be "trying to do harm, collect information about us, and keep them from doing that."

With foreign intelligence officers, the end could be having them declared persona non grata and thrown out of the country. "There have been situations where . . . the embassy has been asked to remove the diplomat from the country in the past," Sullivan said.

But other operations have run so smoothly that the targeted foreign intelligence officer did not know he had been discovered, or even that he had been manipulated by having been fed false information to send back to superiors. "Depending on the nature of the operation," Sullivan said, "the guy could finish his or her job in the U.S. and be allowed to go wherever they're going."

Boy you guys must be worried if you're already attacking the messenger this hard.

Interesting.


nah... just tired of the Russian boogeyman narrative, a simple phishing attack a few weeks before the election would not have give them the ability to change the election if even basic security was carried out around all the systems that actually tabulated the votes. (also the states that still do paper ballots)

Yet this is going to be held up as the reason Hillary lost, and to continue to push the narrative that Russia was trying to rig the election... and I am certain some idiot is going to try to use this as justification for additional sanctions up to and including armed conflict with them.


Then why are people attacking pictures she's posted of herself that don't show anything a bikini wouldn't?

That sort of behavior doesn't really line up with your casual dismissal of it all but sure.

I'd say that they cleared a person who was intent on leaking docs shows a pretty poor clearance procedure.


How would they have known she would eventually leak something. Hell, I would say that she didn't even get in to her position with the intent to leak info.

You're being disingenuous and blaming procedures for the act of one individual.



If not, then why don't we have leaks all over the place? Looks more like she was possibly "streamlined" in with a sponsor or something....if that's the case then I'd like to see who sponsored her as they should be reprimanded as well. That's the only way she could get clearance quicker and would suggest an actual conspiracy.


Are you just making things up? It appears you have no clue what you are talking about.


No, I'm not making things up. I had Secret clearance for years and it was pushed through by a sponsor at Lockheed because of a large project I was running for their global combat support services branch. Cut my time down from 6 months to 1 to get clearance because of the massive backlog they had at the time.

Blaming procedures? That's the only line of defense you have for clearances....procedures. if you miss something that bites your as s later then you missed something and it should come back on you.

Not sure if you're familiar with how it works, but for my secret clearance they spoke to many family members and friends. For my FBI clearance for the MBI it was even more in depth. They came back with questions about things from when I was much younger that I had forgotten about.

They wouldn't know an intent to leak, but part of the background checks has to do with integrity and surely this wasn't the first time something like this had reared its head in her life.....while probably not a leak before, in her career in the military I would have to believe she screwed up somewhere along the way.

I thought someone just said it carried over from the military.

When a new president is elected, is every government employee replaced. That's a No, correct.


they do, I left active duty in 07 my Secret clearance is running out this month, any federal agency would just request and receive your last hack for clearance and if everything was good with the paperwork accept it as is.

I do not recall when she left the Air Force but as a linguist she undoubtedly had TS, so 7 years after she got it initially she would need a rehack but even if it expired the fact she was cleared for TS once would give her a leg up on hiring because instead of a full blown investigation they only approach it as a re-hack for an already given clearance.


Also a chance it was an interim clearance while awaiting full....been a lot more of these issued recently because of the backlogs they have.

right something that is actually fairly normal even with our "friends", so the folks (not saying you specifically) saying this is validation of the narrative about election hacking are mistaken.

Apologize for the misunderstanding had two thoughts run together while replying to you, I agree her actual beliefs should not matter.

It comes up though because some have been trying to defend her actions as whistle blower like, and that leads to people looking at political beliefs to try and see if there is an agenda.

Here's another point.

Greenewald's ass is always in a sling about something.

Even WaPo is suggesting he gave her up.
To cover his own ass maybe ?? ( Let's make a Deal !! )

Mogul gets his leaker in custody.
Counter-Intel catches a bad one.
Media gets a big story including Greenwald.
Everybody gets something and this poor brainwashed kid goes to prison..... or maybe not.
Just another day in Washington D.C.

Hey, its already past lunch time , I gota go.
Were gonna brain storm a few new scandal ideas over drinks, Hehe.

Odd pic to post. Top secret clearance, perhaps the screening qualifications need to be tinkered with a bit?


Looks like a transgender...

Rumor is ...

She was "sloppy" and WANTED to get arrested to make SURE all you Trump people KNEW it wasn't FAKE NEWS.

If she got arrested...it's hard to claim the report was a FAKE report.

Reality wanted to SMACK everyone with some 'reality' of her own special brand

Except for the fact that the contractor the reporter asked to verify the documents said he thought the documents were fake.

That's fair. And I don't dismiss that there are those that are simply tired of the story.

But the original question was more geared towards those who feel that making comments on the physical appearance of the leaker somehow discredits the entirety of the story.
