A Swiss Spy May Have Stolen Millions Of Classified CIA Documents

Secret information shared by U.S. and UK spy agencies may have been compromised when a senior IT technician for Switzerland's intelligence service (NBD) stole a massive amount of internal data, Mark Hosenball of Reuters reports.
The technician, who had unrestricted access to most if not all of NBD's networks, reportedly downloaded terabytes of classified material onto portable hard drives and then carried the trove – equivalent to hundreds of thousands or even millions of printed pages – out of government buildings in a backpack.
Intelligence agencies, including the CIA and M16, routinely share data on counterterrorism and other issues with the NDB.

The part of this story that is a message to it's readers that there is more to this story and it is a bigger problem then this story is telling you.

Either way, the breach is being downplayed as the CIA and M16 declined ot comment while oneU.S. official told Reuters he was unaware of the case. Read more:

Deliberate misprint on the final sentence. Means that sentence is BS and was forced on the media to put there. So the sentence saying the breach is minor truly should tell you that it is a major problem and has them chasing there tails to get to the bottom of it. Damage has been done.

More spy talk and more deliberate misprints.

A Canadian naval intelligence officer has pleaded guilty to spying for Russia over four-and-a-half years, Steven Chase and Jane Taber of The Globe and Mail report.
Sub-Lieutenant Jeffrey Delisle, 41, pleaded guilty to criminal charges of “communicating with a foreign entity” and "breach of trust" for funneling top military secrets from his post at the ultra-secure Trinity naval intelligence center in Halifax to Russia for about $3,000 a month.
A prosecutor at the bail hearings cited intelligence sources who feared the scandal could throw Canada’s relations with allied intelligence organizations“back to the Stone Age.”

The hint there is more to the story.

So while Delisle searched Canadian databases for the term “Russia" he was not only scouring Canadian intelligence but that of the Five Eyes aas well. Read more:

This must mean there is a multinational spy ring at work with access to all the data they want for $3000 a month.

I never heard that misprints were indicative of anything. How cool! All this spy crap is getting to be a bore. I'm tired of these creeps. They don't do any good whatsoever. If they have a success, it is just a band-aid over the problems they created in the first place. A stupid, vicious cycle. Sick of it.

Looking at this article the picture begins to come clearer.

A Swiss parliamentary committee is now conducting its own investigation into the data theft and is expected to report next spring. Investigators are known to be concerned that the NDB lacks investigative powers, such as to search premises or conduct wiretaps, which are widely used by counter-intelligence investigators in other countries.

The Swiss don't have the rights to conduct a search even when they know he has broken the law by stealing information. The secrecy rights in Switzerland prevent a investigation to be conducted even when it is a national security matter.

The media has all ways had there ways of leaking information. The new government control of media around the world has made reporters turn to leaks to release what the governments do not want the people to know. Now that the crack down on leaks have started and has shut down that old tradition of leaking stories. The media has turned to mocking the stories forced on them by misprint in the story or by coming up with a truly crazy story when they can't tell the truth. Above are examples of misprints saying look deeper. Another example would be the explosion at Camp Minden. They first ran with the crazy story of a meteor hit caused a explosion. Then a story on 6 million pounds of explosives were stored incorrectly? First reports of meteor was a look at this they don't want me to tell you about this. And even on the story about 6 million pounds of explosives is not the whole store that is why they have thrown in True Blood TV show was filmed there. They are saying look at this it is a rabbit hole.

Also there was the Treyvon Zimmerman story. The media wanted people to look deeper and find out the truth of what you are not being told. You can read about that here.

When a news anchor explodes and bites his tongue not to say what the government does not want you to know. You know there is more to the story and a rabbit hole to go down.

ot instead of to

oneUS instead one US

Very interesting.

I think they probably meant that it's just the NBD who do not have investigative powers such as searching premises etc.

I would imagine that there would be an investigation by some other organisation such as the police or government department.

It's like that in the UK where the police carry out a lot of tasks on behalf of MI5. Although it must be said, the Swiss are a little bit 'different'!

I really have no idea, can't even speculate. It's difficult because we don't know if they are honest mistakes or they are hints.
