Wikileaks promises massive ongoing release of CIA secrets
(INTELLIHUB) — Tuesday’s shocking release of CIA documents revealing the agencies global covert hacking operations was actually less than 1% of the total documents Wikileaks plans to release, the whistleblowing agency revealed Wednesday.
Yesterday’s now viral release of classified CIA documents detailing a plethora of shady operations including the hacking of smart phones, Samsung TVs, and even the ability to pin the blame on foreign nations for supposed hack attacks has shocked the world despite the fact that only a tiny fraction of the documents have been released.
Wikileaks plans to release the documents in small data dumps over time with yesterday’s release only being part one in what could go down as the biggest release of intelligence community documents in the history of the United States.
Considering what we learned in the first Vault 7 release, one can only imagine what is next and whether or not this could actually bring the agency down.
Perhaps the most startling aspect of yesterday’s release as it pertains to real-world events was the fact that the CIA has a specific group that collects and maintains hacking techniques from other countries which would allow the agency to conduct covert hacking operations and then pin the blame on another country, including Russia.
That’s right, we now have direct evidence that elements with the Central Intelligence Agency, perhaps the same operatives openly targeting the Trump Administration, have the ability to carry out hacking operations and then blame them on the Russian Federation.
As I reported yesterday, “According to the Wikileaks documents, a group within the CIA’s Remote Devices Branch, code-named UMBRAGE, collects and maintains a massive library of attack techniques stolen from other countries, including the Russian Federation.”
“With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the “fingerprints” of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from,” reads the Wikileaks release. “UMBRAGE components cover keyloggers, password collection, webcam capture, data destruction, persistence, privilege escalation, stealth, anti-virus (PSP) avoidance and survey techniques.”
The Wikileaks release continued, “This is analogous to finding the same distinctive knife wound on multiple separate murder victims. The unique wounding style creates suspicion that a single murderer is responsible. As soon one murder in the set is solved then the other murders also find likely attribution.”
What this means in regards to the Trump-Russia narrative is that the Obama administration could have originally obtained FISA permission to conduct surveillance on the Trump campaign based off of so-called intelligence that was planted by operatives within the CIA to specifically make it look as if the campaign was working with the Russians.
“Possibly, what the CIA was monitoring was not actual contacts between Russian agents and the Trump campaign, but CIA-created counter-espionage designed to implicate Trump and provide the legal context for the DOJ to have enough “evidence” to obtain a FISA green-light,” wrote Jerome Corsi.
Unbelievable. With less than 1% of the total documents in their possession, Wikileaks provided a major lead against the deep state operation to take out Donald Trump.
Now, with tens of thousands of more documents planned for release, one can only hope that the American people are provided with even more direct evidence of illegal deep state actions that continue to be a threat to the very fabric of the country.
