One thing American lawmakers and officials haven’t learned, don’t promote what your plans are in advance or it’s doomed to fail.
In passing, I noticed that the individual that leaked files to Wikileaks was out of a pool of former employees
WikiLeaks has stated in the past that they obtained CIA files from a network included former U.S. government hackers and contractors, one of whom WikiLeaks claims is the one who leaked the documents. All of this happened after the agency “lost control” of the documents after they began circulating among a 5,000-person network.
It surprised me that Wikileaks mentioned that the alleged mole came from a government hacker/contractor, but then again it could be all smoke and mirrors. I remember an old saying “You don’t fight using guerilla warfare by telling people you’re going to use guerilla warfare,” and that’s what the FBI just did.
This individual is definitely in the wind.

The FBI has begun preparing for a major mole hunt to determine how anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks got an alleged arsenal of hacking tools the CIA has used to spy on espionage targets, according to people familiar with the matter.
The leak rattled government and technology industry officials, who spent Tuesday scrambling to determine the accuracy and scope of the thousands of documents released by the group. They were also trying to assess the damage the revelations may cause, and what damage may come from future releases promised by WikiLeaks, these people said.
It was all a familiar scenario for a government that has repeatedly seen sensitive information compromised in recent years.
In releasing thousands of pages of documents, WikiLeaks indicated that its source was a former government employee or contractor.
“This extraordinary collection, which amounts to more than several hundred million lines of code, gives its possessor the entire hacking capacity of the CIA,’’ WikiLeaks said in announcing the first release of documents. “The archive appears to have been circulated among former U.S. government hackers and contractors in an unauthorized manner, one of whom has provided WikiLeaks with portions of the archive.’’
One former intelligence official said if that claim is accurate, “there’s going to be another major mole hunt . . . If this is all correct, it’s a big deal.’’
We should sue the federal government and any tech company that allows this or cooperates with this, along with any manufacturer of televisions or cell phones that had a hand in this corruption of our privacy. Samsung, Facebook, Apple, even some of the software providers like Microsoft that have apparently made billions, possibly off of collecting, sharing, and selling personal information from anyone owning these products or have had their data stored in the NSA.
This is an egregious violation of the constitution, and those that were involved should be in prison for life. The ACLU should be all over this, and we should call some attorneys.
