    @julianassange

    They're playing it down before WikiLeaks has even begun publishing the CIA Vault 7 series. Foolish to reveal their role as a mouthpiece for the CIA so directly.

    Quote United States asked Canada to help spy on candidates during 2012 French election: WikiLeaks

    Central Intelligence Agency documents released by WikiLeaks Thursday list Canada as one of several countries asked to assist the United States while they spied on the 2012 French presidential election.

    The three CIA tasking orders request that current French president Francois Hollande, then president Nicolas Sarkozy and current first round presidential front runner Marine Le Pen all be closely monitored.

    CIA officers were asked to uncover the secret strategies of the candidates, as well as information on internal power dynamics within the parties. Canada is listed as one of five countries working on human intelligence parts of the operation however there are no specifics on which parts of the operation, if any, Canada was involved in.

    The Canadian Security Intelligence Service, the Communications Security Establishment Canada, and the Department of Global Affairs did not immediately reply to requests for comment. Ashley Lemire, senior communications advisor at the Department of National Defence, told the National Post: “The Government of Canada does not comment on leaked documents.”

    These revelations come amidst claims by the U.S. intelligence community that Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The orders are all marked “NOFORN”, meaning they are supposed to be restricted to U.S. eyes only so no potential allies are offended. Leaked documents showing Canadian spying on allies have caused significant diplomatic issues before.

    In 2013, documents from whistleblower Edward Snowden showed that the Communications Security Establishment Canada spied on Brazil’s mining and energy ministry in an attempt to gain economic intelligence. At the time, NDP leader Tom Mulcair said the revelations gave Canada “a black eye in the world.”

    Economic intelligence was also a focus of the spying during France’s 2012 election. Agents were asked to answer questions about non-ruling political parties and candidates including: “What are their opinions on the German model of export-led growth?” A 2012 document, marked “SECRET”, that Wiklieaks previously released, tasks U.S. intelligence with compiling information on brewing export deals or export contracts in France worth $200 million or more.

    In addition to Canada, New Zealand, Great Britain, and Australia are all listed under a section indicating which countries are assisting with the “HUMINT” or human intelligence aspect of the operation. Those four countries, along with the United States, make up the Five Eyes intelligence sharing alliance.

    All this build-up towards such a damp squib makes no sense to me. What were they trying to achieve in the French elections that couldn’t be done by waving a press card and doing a bit of serious journalism by asking some tough questions? It looks like serious journalism has disappeared to such an extent that the same work is now being done by private companies for corporate clients and by 3-letter agencies for governments. The two groups are in fact becoming indistinguishable, and a whistleblower is now presented as a defecting spy. See how Putin himself had to explain how Edward Snowden was not a traitor defecting to Moscow but a whistleblower seeking political asylum. The difference of course lies in the secrecy. A defector betrays legitimate state secrets; a whistleblower reveals what should be public knowledge (with some collateral damage to privacy and secrecy, especially when Hillary Clinton ignores security protocols).

    We don’t need more whistleblowers; we don’t want to read private emails: we want private emails to remain private – no exceptions. That means ours are private and so are Clinton’s and Podesta’s; the two things go together. Invasion of the ordinary citizen’s privacy has led to this invasion of the politician’s privacy. It all has to stop. Likewise spies; we don’t need more spies: we want to read public news via public news outlets. We want matters of public concern to become public knowledge and the subject of democratic debate– no exceptions. Secrecy and privacy are not the same thing.

    Also, publicity and advertising are not the same thing. The 2012 French elections are water under the bridge; the president elected then is not even standing in today’s election. Never mind what the spies have been up to: where are the serious reporters reporting on what is going on right now? We have a corporate candidate, Emmanuel Macron, who has appeared from nowhere and is benefiting from a massive advertising campaign in the press – 43% press coverage compared with 17% social media interest – a ‘helium-filled soap bubble’ says this article (in French): http://tempsreel.nouvelobs.com/presi...re-massif.html

    Interestingly, this is compared to the early stages of the Trump campaign, the difference being that the Trump campaign was orchestrated by the other side. It is seen as full-blown advertising, i.e. wholly based on audience research with a view to making the right feel-good noises to various sections of the public (including the megarich), which precludes any degree of consistency or any definite platform. Another candidate (the frontrunner Fillon), was a primary antisleaze choice, nonetheless it turns out rather sleazy; the question now is, are people going to vote against sleaze, and if so how? Or are they going to hold their noses and vote for this guy anyway? The issue that all these candidates raise massively and unconsciously is that of the bankruptcy of the entire system: their inability and/or unwillingness to deliver.

    These things are fairly obvious to the man in the street, and the fact that major foreign governments are relying on espionage to catch up is simply more evidence of same. Also the fact that the average voter is wising up to all these shenanigans would be evidence of less or less effective interference, not more.

    Not a fan of WikiLeaks I see, araucaria, thanks for your post, fair points.

    Speak for yourself though (I deliver that as the figure of speech, not a directive), I want to read them - all emails should be kept private, except for those of war criminals and any other government officials who are betraying public trust.

    And let's just wait and see what's in Vault 7 before we start talking about water under the bridge.

    You misunderstand me, Innocent Warrior. I think WikiLeaks generally are doing a great job that will be better done by other means once we get past the current crisis. I was merely showing by analysis that these messages cannot be intended for ordinary people like myself and so must be a cryptic message to whomever it may concern. We have known for some time that Hollande and Merkel’s phones were being tapped, so serving up last year’s news was rather underwhelming. I think it interesting to reverse the perspective on who is catching up with whom. We have been dealing for ever with what are reactionary forces passing off for revolutionary. They are the ones lagging behind the so-called sheeple. See this post.

    bogus quote


    You will see how the truth of the statement, regardless of who said it, becomes a side issue and its importance fades as a new argument takes its place. Clever bastards.

    The following image was tweeted with the first part of the Vault 7 series, "Year Zero" (see post #49) -



    When lightened, the image reveals a hidden message -





    That is a photograph of the Lingua (sculpture)

    The letters and words, "A_JI PREFECTURE 353 A.D." can be seen on the sculpture in the photograph, the first word in full is "KUANJI", so the full phrase is "KUANJI PREFECTURE 353 A.D.". See the link below if interested in reading the other translations mentioned in the first line in the quote below -

    Quote These translations were transcribed from plaqes at Washington, DC. Typos did appear on the plaques and were left as is.

    KUANJI PREFECTURE 353 AD "IN THE YEAR 353, THE NINTH YEAR OF THE YONG-HE REIGN, EARLY IN THE LAST MONTH OF
    SPRING, THERE WAS A GATHERING AT THE ORCHID PAVILION ON THE NORTHERN SLOPES OF THE KUAI-JI MOUNTAINS; OUR
    PURPOSE, TO CARRY OUT THE SPRING CEREMONIES OF PURIFICATION, MANY A GOOD MAN CAME, THE YOUNG AND OLD
    ALIKE. THE PLACE WAS ONE OF MIGHTY MOUNTAINS AND TOWERING RIDGES COVERED WITH LUSH FORESTS AND TALL
    BAMBOO, WHERE A CLEAR STREAM WITH SWIRLING EDDIES CAST BACK A SPARKLING LIGHT UPON BOTH SHORES. FROM
    THIS WE CUT A WINDING CHANNEL IN WHICH TO FLOAD OUR WINECUPS, AND AROUND THIS EVERYONE TOOK THEIR
    APPOINTED SEATS. TRUE, WE DID NOT HAVE THE HARPS AND FLUTES OF A GREAT FEAST, BUT A CUP OF WINE AND A SONG
    SERVED WELL ENOUGH TO FREE OUR MOST HIDDEN FEELINGS. THE SKY THAT DAY WAS LUMINOUS, AND THE AIR WAS CLEAR;
    GENTLE BREEZES BLEW SOFTLY AROUND US. ABOVE US WE LOOKED ON THE IMMENSITY OF THE UNIVERSE; THEN, LOWER-
    ING OUR EYES, WE SAW NATURE'S INFINITE VARIETY. AND AS WE LET OUR EYES ROAM AND OUR HEARTS SPEED FROM
    THOUGHT TO THOUGHT, WE COULD EXPERIENCE THE GREATEST DELIGHTS OF EAR AND EYE--THIS WAS TRUE HAPPINESS...

    Vault 7: CIA Hacking Tools Revealed

    Quote Press Release


    Today, Tuesday 7 March 2017, WikiLeaks begins its new series of leaks on the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Code-named "Vault 7" by WikiLeaks, it is the largest ever publication of confidential documents on the agency.

    The first full part of the series, "Year Zero", comprises 8,761 documents and files from an isolated, high-security network situated inside the CIA's Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virgina. It follows an introductory disclosure last month of CIA targeting French political parties and candidates in the lead up to the 2012 presidential election.

    Recently, the CIA lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal including malware, viruses, trojans, weaponized "zero day" exploits, malware remote control systems and associated documentation. This extraordinary collection, which amounts to more than several hundred million lines of code, gives its possessor the entire hacking capacity of the CIA. 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.

    "Year Zero" introduces the scope and direction of the CIA's global covert hacking program, its malware arsenal and dozens of "zero day" weaponized exploits against a wide range of U.S. and European company products, include Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.

    Since 2001 the CIA has gained political and budgetary preeminence over the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA). The CIA found itself building not just its now infamous drone fleet, but a very different type of covert, globe-spanning force — its own substantial fleet of hackers. The agency's hacking division freed it from having to disclose its often controversial operations to the NSA (its primary bureaucratic rival) in order to draw on the NSA's hacking capacities.

    By the end of 2016, the CIA's hacking division, which formally falls under the agency's Center for Cyber Intelligence (CCI), had over 5000 registered users and had produced more than a thousand hacking systems, trojans, viruses, and other "weaponized" malware. Such is the scale of the CIA's undertaking that by 2016, its hackers had utilized more code than that used to run Facebook. The CIA had created, in effect, its "own NSA" with even less accountability and without publicly answering the question as to whether such a massive budgetary spend on duplicating the capacities of a rival agency could be justified.

    In a statement to WikiLeaks the source details policy questions that they say urgently need to be debated in public, including whether the CIA's hacking capabilities exceed its mandated powers and the problem of public oversight of the agency. The source wishes to initiate a public debate about the security, creation, use, proliferation and democratic control of cyberweapons.

    Once a single cyber 'weapon' is 'loose' it can spread around the world in seconds, to be used by rival states, cyber mafia and teenage hackers alike.

    Julian Assange, WikiLeaks editor stated that "There is an extreme proliferation risk in the development of cyber 'weapons'. Comparisons can be drawn between the uncontrolled proliferation of such 'weapons', which results from the inability to contain them combined with their high market value, and the global arms trade. But the significance of "Year Zero" goes well beyond the choice between cyberwar and cyberpeace. The disclosure is also exceptional from a political, legal and forensic perspective."

    Wikileaks has carefully reviewed the "Year Zero" disclosure and published substantive CIA documentation while avoiding the distribution of 'armed' cyberweapons until a consensus emerges on the technical and political nature of the CIA's program and how such 'weapons' should analyzed, disarmed and published.

    Wikileaks has also decided to redact and anonymise some identifying information in "Year Zero" for in depth analysis. These redactions include ten of thousands of CIA targets and attack machines throughout Latin America, Europe and the United States. While we are aware of the imperfect results of any approach chosen, we remain committed to our publishing model and note that the quantity of published pages in "Vault 7" part one (“Year Zero”) already eclipses the total number of pages published over the first three years of the Edward Snowden NSA leaks.

    Vault 7: WikiLeaks releases 'Year Zero' largest ever publication on CIA hacking tools



    Published on 7 Mar 2017
    WikiLeaks has published what it claims is the largest ever batch of confidential documents
    on the CIA, revealing the breadth of the agency’s ability to hack smartphones and popular
    social media messaging apps such as WhatsApp.

    Wikileaks 'reveals CIA hacking tools'

    By Leo Kelion
    Technology desk editor


    The CIA has not said if the claims are true

    Wikileaks has published details of what it says are wide-ranging hacking tools used by the CIA.

    The alleged cyber-weapons are said to include malware that targets Windows,
    Android, iOS, OSX and Linux computers as well as internet routers.Some of the
    software is reported to have been developed in-house, but the UK's MI5 agency is
    said to have helped build a spyware attack for Samsung TVs.A spokesman for the
    CIA would not confirm the details.

    "We do not comment on the authenticity or content of purported intelligence
    documents," he said.
