Let’s get this out of the way first: We do not in any way condone the whole “leaking national secrets business” no matter who’s doing it and no matter who it benefits, since we really don’t want our enemies out there in the rest of the world to know what we’re capable of. Know, as opposed to suspect that we’re capable of. It’s always better to have your enemy assume that you’re doing something than to have him know for a fact that you’re doing it. Obviously, having him utterly oblivious is even better.
But that doesn’t mean that we’re going to discard useful intel just because it wasn’t acquired through “proper” means. Take your Queensbury rules and shove them. Nobody follows them anyway, and anybody with an IQ above that of a carrot knows this.
So this, in light of all of the “leaks” and “unnamed sources” all mysteriously aligned to serve one purpose, that of the Prozi Deep State, does seem rather interesting to us:
Among the more notable disclosures which, if confirmed, “would rock the technology world”, the CIA had managed to bypass encryption on popular phone and messaging services such as Signal, WhatsApp and Telegram. According to the statement from WikiLeaks, government hackers can penetrate Android phones and collect “audio and message traffic before encryption is applied.”
Another profound revelation is that the CIA can engage in “false flag” cyberattacks which portray Russia as the assailant. Discussing the CIA’s Remote Devices Branch’s UMBRAGE group, Wikileaks’ source notes that it “collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques ‘stolen’ from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation.
Forget about the “rocking the technology world revelations” that the CIA can bypass encryption. Unless you’re a complete idiot, you already know that they can do this. Hackers in momma’s basement can do this, so it’s a bit beyond ignorant to think that the CIA can’t. Of course they can. Our enemies are doing it to us all the time, or at least trying. Why wouldn’t we try to do it right the hell back at them?
So spare us any fake outrage about that. Do unto others before they do unto you. His Imperial Majesty’s angle on this is that we’re biased towards the U.S. because this is our home, so the tired “you can’t criticize foreign nations for doing to us what we’re doing to them doesn’t fly with us. We don’t give a fuck. Our loyalties lie with this nation and no other, and we will shy from nothing to protect it.
Stick that in your pipes and smoke it.
What’s interesting, again in light of what’s going on in OUR nation right now (again, we don’t give a flying leap at a rolling donut what’s going on anywhere else unless it threatens US), is the confirmation (as if we needed one since we’re not an imbecile, but too many people are), officially, that it’s entirely within the capabilities of actors within the CIA to make an “attack” and make it look as if somebody else did it. D’uh. Again, some people are just too bloody dim to not know this. Yes, we know it’s incredible, how do those vegetables even manage to get out of bed in the morning without strangling themselves in their sheets?
Still, they exist.
Such as, say, make a hack into ProziCrat servers and then make it look like “the Russians did it”, an assertion that makes absolutely no sense since discrediting the party that has made it possible for Putin’s Russia to make headway on the international scene in the wake of the chaos the Prozi Party created makes absolutely no sense at all. If we were Putin, we would have done everything within our power to make sure that Felonia von “Reset” won. The U.S. would have never survived her. And she’d most likely have made sure to sell the other 80% of our uranium to them as well as the 20% she already handed over to them for a song and a dance and a few hefty donations to the Clinton Foundation.
And here we are. Endless hysteria about Russians under every bed, all fueled by “anonymous sources” which, if they even exist, exist within an entrenched bureaucracy perfectly capable of making it look like somebody else did it.
The only hole in this theory is that if they’re that good at it, then why haven’t we, after months of nonsense about the Great Russian Conspiracy, seen any evidence for it?
That shouldn’t be hard to fabricate, should it?
We’ll see, we suppose.
