Portrayal of Bradley Manning in US Media

I used to enjoy PBS Frontline shows and have watched many over the years, but not after last week's show aired on Bradley Manning. Half of the show was about his personal life prior to his wrongful detainment and I wouldn't know what the other half was about because I sure as hell didn't watch it. The attempt to paint a man that allegedly risked his life and lost his freedom so that we may all know the truth about the faux War on Terror as a mentally incompetent with juvenile level issues is abhorrent.

I'm with Lulzsec all the way here: Fuck PBS and the Frontline show and the horse they rode in on! The reputation of this broadcaster and this show was just flushed down a toilet by anyone with a brain.

Yep, the good news is that Lulzsec hacked the PBS website, posted thousands of passwords, and included an article about Tupac being found in New Zealand. Don't you love it? I did. I only hope they've covered their tracks well because an angry mob of US pro-war profiteers with all the money in the world should not be taken lightly. The thought sends shivers up my spine.

While I'm at it, fuck that stupid twit Adrian Lamo too. This idiot and his falsified chat logs and his bullshit concern for possible lost lives is nothing but a US military tool. A lousy informant assigned a military handler that will pull his puppet strings. Get a fuckin' backbone you stupid piece of crap.

I'm sure we can look forward to US military sock puppets twisting this story beyond recognition for the sake of the brain-dead in this country.

Masters of Deception

The internet has changed the world in the last 20 years as more people came online as each year passed. By 1999-2000, the number of people viewing news somewhere other than the mainstream published and syndicated sources, such as CNN and the New York Times, had increased exponentially. None of us are stuck with the news as they present it anymore. We can find any opinion that we seek on the internet and someone somewhere will agree with our viewpoint.

I recall a friend back in 1995 that believed the internet to be completely controlled by government and every move, word, and statement theirs for the tracking. She thought anything that we did or said online could be and eventually would be used against us; like it was one huge plot. She chastised me for having a website for my escort service back then and vowed to never experience the internet. She died in 2008, good to her word. She was Dusty in Memoirs; the escort that worked with me for a short time, was arrested by the MBI, and then left the country until her probation was over with, mailing in her payments to the state.

Dusty went to Europe and worked in clubs in various cities in Germany, Amsterdam, and in Geneva. Her family is German and she was on a mission to hire an attorney and have legal documents translated in her pursuit of land, art, and other property confiscated from her family by the US government following World War 2. She had been on a trail for several years at that point and had zero trust in the US government, believing its representatives had stolen her heritage. She died a poor woman and had no success in her pursuit.

I recall telling Dusty that it was a situation of “if you can't beat them, then join them” in relation to the internet. There was no way to stop technology and its availability so I considered it most intelligent to study networks, hacking, and later Carnivore. Before the MBI knew what Carnivore was, I knew exactly what it was capable of. I actually used to email one escort the client appointment information using PGP – does anyone remember what that is? I remember reading about the verbal attacks on PGP developer Phil Zimmermann in the news following September 11, 2001. There were actually people so stupid that they claimed PGP had a role in that day and attempted to shame him into placing a backdoor in the encryption program for the feds.

Not much doubt that Dusty was correct in her initial assessment of the situation. Today many that are now on-board (or rather online) consider people like Dusty and I conspiracy theorists. It is not my fault that they arrived 10+ years later and are clueless. Today we have the US military using software that creates multiple fake online personae with the main goal of spreading government propaganda and deceiving the general public. Read the article written by Nick Fielding and Ian Cobain in the Guardian here: Revealed: US spy operation that manipulates social media

The US actually uses sock puppets to deceive the ignorant and spread propaganda. How crazy is that? I'd place bets that I have had arguments with one or more of their sock puppets, regardless of the the claim that the program is not yet implemented. It is so absurd that I must laugh.... (laugh break...). Okay – the worst part is that there are so many gullible people online these days that they buy it hook, line, and sinker. I stopped arguing with sock puppets long ago, so if you're that stupid then so be it – I do not intend to enlighten you. *smile*

And then there's Facebook. Julian Assange brought-up the tracking abilities of agents using Facebook recently. Let's face it – they must only be a friend of a friend to get started without the company's permission. I have 5 Facebook friends, so if you sent me a friend request and I never responded, this is why. I comment there on a rare occasion – maybe once every three or four months – and that is how I have always been. Nothing new here. I know someone that posted anything and everything there, and some people that still do.

Indeed, between the USA Patriot Act, the false War on Terror, US military sock puppets, and Facebook we are all tracked in America. However, I seriously doubt that it is any different in Canada or the EU. There is subterfuge around every corner, as they are just waiting, watching. It makes COINTELPRO look mild in comparison. They are the masters of deception.

Will the Obama DOJ Indict Wikileaks Participants?

All along I have been reading the excellent coverage by Glenn Greenwald at Salon.com and the article I came across a couple of days ago reveals that there have been people connected to Wikileaks subpoenaed to testify before the Grand Jury in Alexandria, Virginia. It was in the news when a Grand Jury was convened to investigate and now here we are; we knew it wouldn't simply go away. The article is HERE.

An attorney that I met in South Texas back in late 2003 told me a story about being subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury in the Middle District of Florida. At the time, he was representing a client in a drug trafficking case in Central Florida. The feds were threatening to indict him when his client became a no show in the case.

He had his own attorney in the matter and was advised that he was probably damned if he did and damned if he didn't. This meant that he could always plead the 5th (Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination) and not answer questions, but it was likely that he would be indicted. He could also answer the questions and would probably be indicted if he chose to. It is like walking a tightrope.

A person that is subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury cannot have an attorney present during testimony. He decided to answer the questions honestly and not plead the 5th – they hate it when a person pleads the 5th and usually indict at that point. He was not indicted. He really couldn't believe that prosecutors in the Middle District of Florida would do this to him, but they did. He considered this area different and stated that this wouldn't have happened in South Texas. Indeed it is different, to say the least.

Alexandria, Virginia is different also. In late 2006, Dr. Sami Al-Arian was served a subpoena to testify before the Grand Jury in Alexandria even though his plea agreement in the lengthy and on-going case was clear that he would not be required to cooperate in any other federal witch-hunt. His entire case and trial in the Middle District of Florida was a witch-hunt with far-reaching allegations.

Dr. Al-Arian refused to testify and was subsequently charged with civil contempt of court. He spent 13 months in jail in Virginia before he was finally released from that charge in that place. In short time he was subpoenaed to testify once again and pursued until federal prosecutors charged him with criminal contempt of court in June of 2008. It was March of 2009 before a federal judge finally agreed with him that his plea agreement in the Middle District of Florida was binding and he couldn't be compelled to testify. The DOJ was claiming that the DOJ in Virginia was not a party to the DOJ in Tampa's plea bargain. Crazy, right? As if it isn't all one and the same DOJ!

Dr. Al-Arian is still under house arrest today. This is a case that has gone on since his early 2003 indictment. As I was on trial in Orlando, he was being indicted in the case in Tampa. And so many people claim that there are not political persecutions in the US?

Those that are subpoenaed to testify in connection to the Wikileaks investigation will have a choice, but is it really a choice at all? Each will be damned if they do and damned if they don't. Get ready for a replay of the Sami Al-Arian case as the DOJ scrambles to indict as many as possible, especially after the recent release of the Guantanamo Files. I haven't yet read through the documents, but that is because I already know the content. Most people that are awake in this country already know the content.
