For someone who English isn't his forte, you really used ambiguous language with saying you "sniped" these documents.
Of all the definition presented here, I'm assuming you mean you found these documents at a crucial time, which would make since as you say they are
no longer there.
I'm going to give the OP some slack here and carry on now.
The DMCA is an absolute #ing joke. Firstly, nearly anything can be claimed under it. Anything. I've seen things taken down due to DMCA "violations"
all the time even when there wasn't a violation. The problem with it is that those accused as treated as guilty unless proven innocent. As a troll on
youtube, I only know this too well.
So from what I gather; the OP was on MMS a while ago and found reports on the site about BP and how they knew about these problems and MMS knew about
these problems for a long time.
Which is no surprise considering Bloomberg recently received reports from MMS saying just that.
Now this makes no sense as from what we can tell, you got rather screwed from finding this whereas MMS willingly gave these over to Bloomberg.
So I can only assume two things; one, the OP is correct and telling the truth. The reports given to Bloomberg are a set up to make it appear the
government is "on our side" even though we know for a fact THEY knew that the # was about to hit the fan. And it's also possible that the info
given was not complete and does not match what the OP found.
The other assumption I can make is that the OP is just full of crap and is hoaxing us.
But I'm not too sure of that. I think the OP may have found something. I mean lets face it, the typical police officer is not tech savvy and it's
possible those that took his stuff where regular gumshoes who were just given an ambiguous order from somewhere to take some computers from the OP.
They may not have known about the external hard disk.
That's my best decryption of the OP's story right now, and I say if the OP can certainly prove something he should do so assuming his ISP doesn't
cut him off again and the partyvan doesn't show up at his house. And you should definitely send what you have to wikileaks as well. Not only will
that possibly allow this info to spread but it may help us see whether wikileaks is a "good guy" or a "bad guy".
