Revealed: how Microsoft handed the NSA access to encrypted messages


Posted on July 11, 2013 by Akashma Online News

July 11, 2013 By Edward Snowden News

Hours after CNBC reported that ValueAct Capital Management threw nearly $2 billion into Microsoft Corporation, April 22, 2013

ValueAct Capital, LLC is a San Francisco based hedge fund. The firm offers its services to high net worth individuals and institutions while investing in the public equity and hedging markets of the United States.

• Files released show scale of Silicon Valley co-operation on Prism
• Outlook.com encryption unlocked even before official launch
• Skype worked to enable Prism collection of video calls
• Company says it is legally compelled to comply

Microsoft has collaborated closely with US intelligence services to allow users’ communications to be intercepted, including helping the National Security Agency to circumvent the company’s own encryption, according to top-secret documents obtained by the Guardian.

The files provided by Edward Snowden illustrate the scale of co-operation between Silicon Valley and the intelligence agencies over the last three years. They also shed new light on the workings of the top-secret Prism program, which was disclosed by the Guardian and the Washington Post last month.

The documents show that:

• Microsoft helped the NSA to circumvent its encryption to address concerns that the agency would be unable to intercept web chats on the new Outlook.com portal;

• The agency already had pre-encryption stage access to email on Outlook.com, including Hotmail;

• The company worked with the FBI this year to allow the NSA easier access via Prism to its cloud storage service SkyDrive, which now has more than 250 million users worldwide;

• Microsoft also worked with the FBI’s Data Intercept Unit to “understand” potential issues with a feature in Outlook.com that allows users to create email aliases;

Skype has been acquired by Microsoft for a whopping $8.5 billion. News.com

• Skype, which was bought by Microsoft in October 2011, worked with intelligence agencies last year to allow Prism to collect video of conversations as well as audio;

• Material collected through Prism is routinely shared with the FBI and CIA, with one NSA document describing the program as a “team sport”.

The latest NSA revelations further expose the tensions between Silicon Valley and the Obama administration. All the major tech firms are lobbying the government to allow them to disclose more fully the extent and nature of their co-operation with the NSA to meet their customers’ privacy concerns. Privately, tech executives are at pains to distance themselves from claims of collaboration and teamwork given by the NSA documents, and insist the process is driven by legal compulsion.

In a statement, Microsoft said: “When we upgrade or update products we aren’t absolved from the need to comply with existing or future lawful demands.” The company reiterated its argument that it provides customer data “only in response to government demands and we only ever comply with orders for requests about specific accounts or identifiers”.

In June, the Guardian revealed that the NSA claimed to have “direct access” through the Prism program to the systems of many major internet companies, including Microsoft, Skype, Apple, Google, Facebook and Yahoo.

Blanket orders from the secret surveillance court allow these communications to be collected without an individual warrant if the NSA operative has a 51% belief that the target is not a US citizen and is not on US soil at the time. Targeting US citizens does require an individual warrant, but the NSA is able to collect Americans’ communications without a warrant if the target is a foreign national located overseas.

Since Prism’s existence became public, Microsoft and the other companies listed on the NSA documents as providers have denied all knowledge of the program and insisted that the intelligence agencies do not have back doors into their systems.

Microsoft’s latest marketing campaign, launched in April, emphasizes its commitment to privacy with the slogan: “Your privacy is our priority.”

Similarly, Skype’s privacy policy states: “Skype is committed to respecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your personal data, traffic data and communications content.”

But internal NSA newsletters, marked top secret, suggest the co-operation between the intelligence community and the companies is deep and ongoing.

The latest documents come from the NSA’s Special Source Operations (SSO) division, described by Snowden as the “crown jewel” of the agency. It is responsible for all programs aimed at US communications systems through corporate partnerships such as Prism.

The files show that the NSA became concerned about the interception of encrypted chats on Microsoft’s Outlook.com portal from the moment the company began testing the service in July last year.

Within five months, the documents explain, Microsoft and the FBI had come up with a solution that allowed the NSA to circumvent encryption on Outlook.com chats

A newsletter entry dated 26 December 2012 states: “MS [Microsoft], working with the FBI, developed a surveillance capability to deal” with the issue. “These solutions were successfully tested and went live 12 Dec 2012.”

Two months later, in February this year, Microsoft officially launched the Outlook.com portal.

Another newsletter entry stated that NSA already had pre-encryption access to Outlook email. “For Prism collection against Hotmail, Live, and Outlook.com emails will be unaffected because Prism collects this data prior to encryption.”

Microsoft’s co-operation was not limited to Outlook.com. An entry dated 8 April 2013 describes how the company worked “for many months” with the FBI – which acts as the liaison between the intelligence agencies and Silicon Valley on Prism – to allow Prism access without separate authorization to its cloud storage service SkyDrive.

The document describes how this access “means that analysts will no longer have to make a special request to SSO for this – a process step that many analysts may not have known about”.

The NSA explained that “this new capability will result in a much more complete and timely collection response”. It continued: “This success is the result of the FBI working for many months with Microsoft to get this tasking and collection solution established.”

A separate entry identified another area for collaboration. “The FBI Data Intercept Technology Unit (DITU) team is working with Microsoft to understand an additional feature in Outlook.com which allows users to create email aliases, which may affect our tasking processes.”

The NSA has devoted substantial efforts in the last two years to work with Microsoft to ensure increased access to Skype, which has an estimated 663 million global users.

One document boasts that Prism monitoring of Skype video production has roughly tripled since a new capability was added on 14 July 2012. “The audio portions of these sessions have been processed correctly all along, but without the accompanying video. Now, analysts will have the complete ‘picture’,” it says.

Eight months before being bought by Microsoft, Skype joined the Prism program in February 2011.

According to the NSA documents, work had begun on smoothly integrating Skype into Prism in November 2010, but it was not until 4 February 2011 that the company was served with a directive to comply signed by the attorney general.

The NSA was able to start tasking Skype communications the following day, and collection began on 6 February. “Feedback indicated that a collected Skype call was very clear and the metadata looked complete,” the document stated, praising the co-operation between NSA teams and the FBI. “Collaborative teamwork was the key to the successful addition of another provider to the Prism system.”

 

Janus Friis-Niklas Zennstrom founders

ACLU technology expert Chris Soghoian said the revelations would surprise many Skype users. “In the past, Skype made affirmative promises to users about their inability to perform wiretaps,” he said. “It’s hard to square Microsoft’s secret collaboration with the NSA with its high-profile efforts to compete on privacy with Google.”

The information the NSA collects from Prism is routinely shared with both the FBI and CIA. A 3 August 2012 newsletter describes how the NSA has recently expanded sharing with the other two agencies.

The NSA, the entry reveals, has even automated the sharing of aspects of Prism, using software that “enables our partners to see which selectors [search terms] the National Security Agency has tasked to Prism”.

The document continues: “The FBI and CIA then can request a copy of Prism collection of any selector…” As a result, the author notes: “these two activities underscore the point that Prism is a team sport!”

In its statement to the Guardian, Microsoft said:

We have clear principles which guide the response across our entire company to government demands for customer information for both law enforcement and national security issues. First, we take our commitments to our customers and to compliance with applicable law very seriously, so we provide customer data only in response to legal processes.

Second, our compliance team examines all demands very closely, and we reject them if we believe they aren’t valid. Third, we only ever comply with orders about specific accounts or identifiers, and we would not respond to the kind of blanket orders discussed in the press over the past few weeks, as the volumes documented in our most recent disclosure clearly illustrate.

Finally when we upgrade or update products legal obligations may in some circumstances require that we maintain the ability to provide information in response to a law enforcement or national security request. There are aspects of this debate that we wish we were able to discuss more freely. That’s why we’ve argued for additional transparency that would help everyone understand and debate these important issues.

In a joint statement, Shawn Turner, spokesman for the director of National Intelligence, and Judith Emmel, spokeswoman for the NSA, said:

The articles describe court-ordered surveillance – and a US company’s efforts to comply with these legally mandated requirements. The US operates its programs under a strict oversight regime, with careful monitoring by the courts, Congress and the Director of National Intelligence. Not all countries have equivalent oversight requirements to protect civil liberties and privacy.

They added: “In practice, US companies put energy, focus and commitment into consistently protecting the privacy of their customers around the world, while meeting their obligations under the laws of the US and other countries in which they operate.”

This is 2013 Not 1984

This is 2013 No 1984

Dear All:

To understand the scope of whats is going on, on “politics and in the world of government”, we must understand what really is government and the entities behind it.
The entities that manage the governments are just a bunch of leaches or parasites living out of the resources of the country they control, and for that, they set up entities or companies that exploit those resources, these entities known as corporations control every action taken by the governments, and it is really no brainier to see that the great majority of the people of every country lives under the worse conditions.
How these entities get away with the pillage of the resources? They are ghost companies with no liability or accountability on its own damage because their CEOS do not live in the countries they exploit. The corporations are set up on such way, that they can only be trace to a small boxes somewhere in the Canary Islands. They pay no taxes, they follow no laws. The governments pretend they control them, but the truth is, that corporations control the governments.
This is no news at all, had happened all the times, people had complain all the time, but people was not organized with the speed that they do now, with the use of the social networks.
An analysis of the social networks was done by Professor Zeynep Tufekci- She is a fellow at the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University and an assistant professor at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hillthat explain how the process works, and why it works. You can read her article explaining with surgical eye the behavior of people and government in the internet and social networks era.

Corporate World

Every government has a groups of “workers”, namely government officials that are in charge of deliver every action agreed behind the doors of these corporations.
In the US, the executive, the legislative and the judicial each one of these wing of government are in charge of the policies set up by the corporations.
So, when Edward Snowden leaked or better said, told the world, -not just the American public,- but the whole world, that The US is spying on everyone of us, it did open a door for the world to see what in reality our governments are and what they are capable of.

If you see the commotion caused in other government’s countries by this leaked information, you saw that was minimal, but the “People, We the people were and still outraged, but the other governments just showed a little bit of distress, not really a big deal for them, Why? because they all know about it, they also spy on their own people. But, the US spy on E V E R Y B O D Y, INCLUDING THE OTHER GOVERNMENTS OR GROUP OF LEACHES.

Follow every step this whole affairs has taken. The moment Snowden revealed the information to us, immediately every one in position of power grabbed their microphones and say that they all agree with the behavior of the government, meaning that they do not care if the government is spying on them. Well they might not care now because they are on the other side of the fence, but as soon as they end their term, I want to see them supporting the surveillance on them.
If we analyze the history of men kind, we see that since there is written history we clearly see that since the beginning there has been the top class and the bottom and off course the Class that plays the role of government, which is the one that protects the interest, and the well being of the top class.
And off course, once we know what this group of leaches are doing, of course every one is a potential enemy, because the Government do not know how each of us is going to react.

Biggest Protest Egypt History

Egypt protests 3

Protesters opposing Egyptian President Mursi shout slogans and make fireworkes during a protest in Tahrir square in Cairo

There is really a concern for the governments of the world since the Arab Springs started to flourish. It does not matter that the Government spread information or better say, spread misinformation telling the world that is not the people that is outpouring into the streets by the millions on their own will but  the US who is controlling the revolutions.

NO way, The Governments are really scare of the people, they might control few hundreds thousands but they can not control millions. It is impossible with 100,000 thousands soldiers to control 33 millions angry, starving people.
If the time comes that the whole world stand up in their feet and demand justice and equality, there is the possibility that the same army personal will raise with the people. There are just a little number of high ranking army, and navy people that make enough to have a relaxed life, but the great majority are living on a very stretched income.
And the governments would be suicide if they even thinking on using weapons of mass destruction to control millions of people protesting on the streets, they would be shooting their own feet, because wanted or not, the arm forces of the stronger governments of the world are men of honor and they would not commit to murder their own citizens.

Stop Watching US


Stop Watching Us.

The revelations about the National Security Agency’s surveillance apparatus, if true, represent a stunning abuse of our basic rights. We demand the U.S. Congress reveal the full extent of the NSA’s spying programs.

Dear Members of Congress,

We write to express our concern about recent reports published in the Guardian and the Washington Post, and acknowledged by the Obama Administration, which reveal secret spying by the National Security Agency (NSA) on phone records and Internet activity of people in the United States.

The Washington Post and the Guardian recently published reports based on information provided by a career intelligence officer showing how the NSA and the FBI are gaining broad access to data collected by nine of the leading U.S. Internet companies and sharing this information with foreign governments. As reported, the U.S. government is extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time. As a result, the contents of communications of people both abroad and in the U.S. can be swept in without any suspicion of crime or association with a terrorist organization.

Leaked reports also published by the Guardian and confirmed by the Administration reveal that the NSA is also abusing a controversial section of the PATRIOT Act to collect the call records of millions of Verizon customers. The data collected by the NSA includes every call made, the time of the call, the duration of the call, and other “identifying information” for millions of Verizon customers, including entirely domestic calls, regardless of whether those customers have ever been suspected of a crime. The Wall Street Journal has reported that other major carriers, including AT&T and Sprint, are subject to similar secret orders.

This type of blanket data collection by the government strikes at bedrock American values of freedom and privacy. This dragnet surveillance violates the First and Fourth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution, which protect citizens’ right to speak and associate anonymously and guard against unreasonable searches and seizures that protect their right to privacy.

We are calling on Congress to take immediate action to halt this surveillance and provide a full public accounting of the NSA’s and the FBI’s data collection programs. We call on Congress to immediately and publicly:

  1. Enact reform this Congress to Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act, the state secrets privilege, and the FISA Amendments Act to make clear that blanket surveillance of the Internet activity and phone records of any person residing in the U.S. is prohibited by law and that violations can be reviewed in adversarial proceedings before a public court;
  2. Create a special committee to investigate, report, and reveal to the public the extent of this domestic spying. This committee should create specific recommendations for legal and regulatory reform to end unconstitutional surveillance;
  3. Hold accountable those public officials who are found to be responsible for this unconstitutional surveillance.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

US Citizens

This letter was accompanied by the launch of StopWatching.us, a global petition calling on Congress to provide a public accounting of the United States’ domestic spying capabilites and to bring an end to illegal surveillance.

What We Don’t Know About Spying on Citizens: Scarier Than What We Know


The NSA’s surveillance of cell-phone calls show how badly we need to protect the

whistle-blowers who provide transparency and accountability.

Jun 6 2013, 12:24 PM ET

Yesterday, we learned that the NSA received all calling records from Verizon customers for a three-month period starting in April. That’s everything except the voice content: who called who, where they were, how long the call lasted — for millions of people, both Americans and foreigners. This “metadata” allows the government to track the movements of everyone during that period, and a build a detailed picture of who talks to whom. It’s exactly the same data the Justice Department collected about AP journalists.

The Guardian delivered this revelation after receiving a copy of a secret memo about this — presumably from a whistle-blower. We don’t know if the other phone companies handed data to the NSA too. We don’t know if this was a one-off demand or a continuously renewed demand; the order started a few days after the Boston bombers were captured by police.

We don’t know a lot about how the government spies on us, but we know some things. We know the FBI has issued tens of thousands of ultra-secret National Security Letters to collect all sorts of data on people — we believe on millions of people — and has been abusing them to spy on cloud-computer users. We know it can collect a wide array of personal data from the Internet without a warrant. We also know that the FBI has been intercepting cell-phone data, all but voice content, for the past 20 years without a warrant, and can use the microphone on some powered-off cell phones as a room bug — presumably only with a warrant.

We know that the NSA has many domestic-surveillance and data-mining programs with codenames like Trailblazer, Stellar Wind, and Ragtime — deliberately using different codenames for similar programs to stymie oversight and conceal what’s really going on. We know that the NSA is building an enormous computer facility in Utah to store all this data, as well as faster computer networks to process it all. We know the U.S. Cyber Command employs 4,000 people.

We know that the DHS is also collecting a massive amount of data on people, and that local police departments are running “fusion centers” to collect and analyze this data, and covering up its failures. This is all part of the militarization of the police.

Remember in 2003, when Congress defunded the decidedly creepy Total Information Awareness program? It didn’t die; it just changed names and split into many smaller programs. We know that corporations are doing an enormous amount of spying on behalf of the government: all parts.

We know all of this not because the government is honest and forthcoming, but mostly through three backchannels — inadvertent hints or outright admissions by government officials in hearings and court cases, information gleaned from government documents received under FOIA, and government whistle-blowers.

There’s much more we don’t know, and often what we know is obsolete. We know quite a bit about the NSA’s ECHELON program from a 2000 European investigation, and about the DHS’s plans for Total Information Awareness from 2002, but much less about how these programs have evolved. We can make inferences about the NSA’s Utah facility based on the theoretical amount of data from various sources, the cost of computation, and the power requirements from the facility, but those are rough guesses at best. For a lot of this, we’re completely in the dark.

And that’s wrong.

The U.S. government is on a secrecy binge. It overclassifies more information than ever. And we learn, again and again, that our government regularly classifies things not because they need to be secret, but because their release would be embarrassing.

Knowing how the government spies on us is important. Not only because so much of it is illegal — or, to be as charitable as possible, based on novel interpretations of the law — but because we have a right to know. Democracy requires an informed citizenry in order to function properly, and transparency and accountability are essential parts of that. That means knowing what our government is doing to us, in our name. That means knowing that the government is operating within the constraints of the law. Otherwise, we’re living in a police state.

We need whistle-blowers.

Leaking information without getting caught is difficult. It’s almost impossible to maintain privacy in the Internet Age. The WikiLeaks platform seems to have been secure — Bradley Manning was caught not because of a technological flaw, but because someone he trusted betrayed him — but the U.S. government seems to have successfully destroyed it as a platform. None of the spin-offs have risen to become viable yet. The New Yorker recently unveiled its Strongbox platform for leaking material, which is still new but looks good. This link contains the best advice on how to leak information to the press via phone, email, or the post office. The National Whistleblowers Center has a page on national-security whistle-blowers and their rights.

Leaking information is also very dangerous. The Obama Administration has embarked on a war on whistle-blowers, pursuing them — both legally and through intimidation — further than any previous administration has done. Mark Klein, Thomas Drake, and William Binney have all been persecuted for exposing technical details of our surveillance state. Bradley Manning has been treated cruelly and inhumanly — and possibly tortured — for his more-indiscriminate leaking of State Department secrets.

The Obama Administration’s actions against the Associated Press, its persecution of Julian Assange, and its unprecedented prosecution of Manning on charges of “aiding the enemy” demonstrate how far it’s willing to go to intimidate whistle-blowers — as well as the journalists who talk to them.

But whistle-blowing is vital, even more broadly than in government spying. It’s necessary for good government, and to protect us from abuse of power.

We need details on the full extent of the FBI’s spying capabilities. We don’t know what information it routinely collects on American citizens, what extra information it collects on those on various watch lists, and what legal justifications it invokes for its actions. We don’t know its plans for future data collection. We don’t know what scandals and illegal actions — either past or present — are currently being covered up.

We also need information about what data the NSA gathers, either domestically or internationally. We don’t know how much it collects surreptitiously, and how much it relies on arrangements with various companies. We don’t know how much it uses password cracking to get at encrypted data, and how much it exploits existing system vulnerabilities. We don’t know whether it deliberately inserts backdoors into systems it wants to monitor, either with or without the permission of the communications-system vendors.

And we need details about the sorts of analysis the organizations perform. We don’t know what they quickly cull at the point of collection, and what they store for later analysis — and how long they store it. We don’t know what sort of database profiling they do, how extensive their CCTV and surveillance-drone analysis is, how much they perform behavioral analysis, or how extensively they trace friends of people on their watch lists.

We don’t know how big the U.S. surveillance apparatus is today, either in terms of money and people or in terms of how many people are monitored or how much data is collected. Modern technology makes it possible to monitor vastly more people — yesterday’s NSA revelations demonstrate that they could easily surveil everyone — than could ever be done manually.

Whistle-blowing is the moral response to immoral activity by those in power. What’s important here are government programs and methods, not data about individuals. I understand I am asking for people to engage in illegal and dangerous behavior. Do it carefully and do it safely, but — and I am talking directly to you, person working on one of these secret and probably illegal programs — do it.

If you see something, say something. There are many people in the U.S. that will appreciate and admire you.

For the rest of us, we can help by protesting this war on whistle-blowers. We need to force our politicians not to punish them — to investigate the abuses and not the messengers — and to ensure that those unjustly persecuted can obtain redress.

Our government is putting its own self-interest ahead of the interests of the country. That needs to change.

MK ULTRA – NOT CONSPIRACY BUT TRUTH

December 31, 2011 3 comments

MK-ULTRA:

MK Ultra was a code name declassified in the 1970’s Church Committee and other lawsuits brought against the government where the public was informed that thousands of people, patients from hospitals, mental health patients, prisoners in the… justice system, and even public citizens were selected for testing without their consent. Testing was conducted int he 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Some claim they still go on today and provide evidence. The testing includes torture, drugs and exotic hypnosis experiments in an effort to explore the mind, propaganda and other related patterns. One sub department of the operation included a group of lunatic scientists who were looking to create an assassins program, to see if it was possible to kidnap someone, say an enemy in a country, conduct hypnosis and other techniques learned in Mk Ultra, and send them back to the country with a plan to assassinate their leaders. That plan is what scares people most. MK Ultra was carried out by the CIA illegally and in the 1970s, hundreds of patients sued the federal government for damages, and the government settled and paid millions of dollars.

Now here is the really trippy, scary info. Some of these patients where MK Ultra was used include Ted Kazinsky (the unabpmber), mark David Chapman (the man who shot Lennon), Sirhan Sirhan (the man who shot Bobby Kennedy) and even Lee Harvey Oswald is rumored to have attended a base in japan before heading to Russia where MK Ultra experiments were taking place. David Ferrie, Oswalds boss for a long period of time, is said to have been an MK Ultra specialist and specialized in hypnosis and believe it or not, sexual molestation to mess with his patients heads. David Ferrie was a convicted child predator who left the Catholic Church to train Black Operations hitmen for the invasion of Cuba. David Ferrie taught the Louisiana Civial Air Patrol where both Lee Harvey Oswald and Barry Seal joined as 15 year old children. Barry Seal became the primary operative in Iran-Contra who ran drugs for the CIA and was an active contract hitman, Oswlad was accused of killing John F Kennedy. David Ferrie was murdered, made to look like a suicide, the night before his testimony in a trial Jim Garrison brought against the CIA where he accused Ferrie and others of using Oswald as a patsy…

Here are some of the videos of the testimony from MK Ultra survivors during court cases against the government:

Project MK-ULTRA, or MKULTRA, was the code name for a covert CIA mind-control and chemical interrogation research program, run by the Office of Scientific Intelligence. The program began in the early 1950s, continuing at least through the late 1960s, and it used United States citizens as its test subjects. The published evidence indicates that Project MK-ULTRA involved the surreptitious use of many types of drugs, as well as other methods, to manipulate individual mental states and to alter brain function.

Project MK-ULTRA was first brought to wide public attention in 1975 by the U.S. Congress, through investigations by the Church Committee, and by a presidential commission known as the Rockefeller Commission. Investigative efforts were hampered by the fact that CIA Director Richard Helms ordered all MK-ULTRA files destroyed in 1973; the Church Committee and Rockefeller Commission investigations relied on the sworn testimony of direct participants and on the relatively small number of documents that survived Helms’ destruction order.

Although the CIA insists that MK-ULTRA-type experiments have been abandoned, 14-year CIA veteran Victor Marchetti has stated in various interviews that the CIA routinely conducts disinformation campaigns and that CIA mind control research continued. In a 1977 interview, Marchetti specifically called the CIA claim that MK-ULTRA was abandoned a “cover story.”

On the Senate floor in 1977, Senator Ted Kennedy said:

“The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over thirty universities and institutions were involved in an ‘extensive testing and experimentation’ program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens “at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign.” Several of these tests involved the administration of LSD to ‘unwitting subjects in social situations.’ At least one death, that of Dr. Olson, resulted from these activities. The Agency itself acknowledged that these tests made little scientific sense. The agents doing the monitoring were not qualified scientific observers.”

Project ARTICHOKE was a CIA project that researched interrogation methods and arose from Project BLUEBIRD on August 20, 1951, run by the Office of Scientific Intelligence. A memorandum by Richard Helms to CIA director Allen Welsh Dulles indicated Artichoke became Project MKULTRA on April 13, 1953.

The project studied hypnosis, forced morphine addiction (and subsequent forced withdrawal), and the use of other chemicals, among other methods, to produce amnesia and other vulnerable states in subjects.

Artichoke was an offensive program of mind control that gathered together the intelligence divisions of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and FBI. In addition, the scope of the project was outlined in a memo dated January 1952 that stated, “Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature, such as self preservation?”

Operation LAC (Large Area Coverage), was a U.S. Army Chemical Corps operation which dispersed microscopic zinc cadmium sulfide (ZnCdS) particles over much of the United States. The purpose was to determine the dispersion and geographic range of biological or chemical agents.

3-quinuclidinyl benzilate (QNB, BZ, EA-2277), IUPAC name 1-azabicyclo[2.2.2]Oct-3-yl α-hydroxy-α-phenylbenzeneacetate, is an odorless military incapacitating agent. Its NATO code is BZ. The Iraqi incapacitating agent Agent 15 is believed either to be the same as or similar to BZ.

BZ is a glycolate anticholinergic compound related to atropine, scopolamine, hyoscyamine, and other deliriants. Dispersal would be as an aerosolized solid (primarily for inhalation) or as agent dissolved in one or more solvents for ingestion or percutaneous absorption.

Acting as a competitive inhibitor of acetylcholine at postsynaptic and postjunctional muscarinic receptor sites in smooth muscle, exocrine glands, autonomic ganglia, and the brain, BZ decreases the effective concentration of acetylcholine seen by receptors at these sites. Thus, BZ causes PNS effects that in general are the opposite of those seen in nerve agent poisoning. CNS effects include stupor, confusion, and confabulation with concrete and panoramic illusions and hallucinations, and with regression to automatic “phantom” behaviors such as plucking and disrobing.

Physostigmine, which increases the concentration of acetylcholine in synapses and in neuromuscular and neuroglandular junctions, is a specific antidote.

A Simple List of Demands for Global Dissenters; We The People


Posted on July 05, 2011 by Marivel GuzmanOriginal Work of Martin Truther

WE, THE PEOPLE, of this beautiful, delicate, blue-white planet called Earth, have finally had enough stupidity and corruption from our leaders and the controllers behind them. We hereby resolve to end the destruction of the natural world, the daily poisonings of and violence against humanity, the ridiculous lies, abuse of authority and constant wars that have become the seemingly unstoppable and unquestionable backdrop of our lives for the past few generations. We hereby reject all of that.

We will no longer allow ourselves to be coerced into operating the dysfunctional mechanisms of our culture that keep average people enslaved to systems beyond their control—systems that not only have ceased to be beneficial, but are actually actively destructive of ourselves and our fellow citizens to such an extent that we’re moved by an enlightened sense of self protection to reform or destroy the mechanisms that oppress us.

From now on, we absolutely refuse to cooperate with injustice in any form. We are educating each other and actively disabusing ourselves of concepts and disinformation that, in the past, have been forms of mental slavery by which we’ve unknowingly participated in our own oppression.

We claim the rights of self-determination, food, shelter, health care, freedom from poisoning, and freedom from destruction of our natural habitat because habitat is the source of our well-being and to compromise our biosphere is to reduce the planet’s carrying capacity and thus, in a very real and measurable way, habitat destruction is, inevitably, murder. In the ecological version of the game of musical chairs, every missing chair means another chalk outline on the ground.

In the past, we’ve been manipulated into fearing and murdering each other by greedy leaders who’ve sought to increase their personal power at the expense of others’ lives. We recognize and affirm the common bonds of humanity between all peoples—as well as our common cause, which is to liberate ourselves from being controlled—economically, culturally, psychologically and coercively—by the global elite.

We’ve have enough talk—the carefully crafted and framed phraseology of the marketing focus groups and public relations propagandists who translate the will of the ruling class into digestible sound bites designed to delay real action until we’ve forgotten what we were asking for or have given up hoping and sunk into despair. It is time for our leaders to act—to lead or get out of the way or be trampled as we ourselves rush in to fill the vacuum of true leadership that plagues our world.

We make the following demands—

1.- Immediate and complete nationalization of all privately-owned central banks which are today in possession of the stolen wealth of nearly all the world’s nations and the legacies of our ancestors which rightfully belong to all humanity and not to a few petty thieves in suits.

2.- A global jubilee—forgiveness of all national debts and return of authority to issue currency to public agencies of legitimate governments.

3.- Cessation of all hostilities and wars, including, but not limited to the United States’ unconstitutional wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya as well as acts of war in many other countries.

4.- Immediate re-deployment of all military personnel to protect their legitimate leaders from the likely violent backlash of vested, special interests against the demands outlined in this document.

5.- The appointment of a corps of special prosecutors, investigative journalists and historians to investigate the allegations of whistle-blowers in many countries to get to the truth behind various assassinations, plane crashes and other probable covert false flag attacks against the public and some late, but great, leaders, and to imprison those responsible where appropriate.

6.- The strengthening and reform of the IAEA to conduct immediate omnilateral and coordinated dismantling of all nuclear weapons on Earth (and in space, to the extent there may be covert space-based nuclear weaponry).

7.- The immediate shutdown of all nuclear power plants within range of earthquake, tsunami or flooding hazards and a rapid phase out of all nuclear and fossil-fuel power plants.

8.- An immediate “Apollo Project” scale global renewable energy infrastructure initiative to create jobs and energy security in all communities by hiring people to build wind, solar, geothermal, tidal, methane and/or other novel non fossil-fuel, non-nuclear energy systems.

9.- A global initiative to build solar distillation and desalinization plants to produce pure water for drinking, cooking and intensive agriculture, aquaculture and hydroponics. Designs will utilize a high percentage of recycled glass and metal.

10.- High speed rail systems everywhere to capitalize on the most efficient form of land transportation.
Bicycle lanes in all cities and towns to facilitate both health and efficient transportation.
High-tech gigantic sailing ships for efficient ocean-transport and global distribution of goods without significant use of fossil fuel except near port, if necessary.

11.- Electric and fuel-cell cars to run on hydrogen produced and stored from renewable generating plants.

12.- World-wide cessation of corporate personhood.

13.- Food freedom and land reform so that people willing and able to farm natural crops organically have the opportunity to do so for themselves, their families and friends and for the public. Food freedom will be understood to include the right to consume raw foods, including dairy, juices and other oft-attacked health practices.

13.1 Immediate cessation of growing and destruction of GMO crops and livestock everywhere and the release of suppressed data regarding the hazards of these so-called life-forms.

14.- The cessation of all federal and state interference perpetrated on medical marijuana growers, distributors, doctors and patients so that people have unfettered access to this remarkably effective and natural drug that protects and restores the nervous system, has been shown to cure cancer in a large number of cases and which is beneficial for anxiety and pain management.

15.- The cessation of all federal and state interference with those who would grow industrial hemp for paper, food oil, textiles, natural plastics to name but a few of the many beneficial uses for the non-psychoactive strains of this remarkable plant.

16.- Forgiveness of all college student loans and related educational debt and full funding of public education from Kindergarten through college (including vouchers for home-schooling at a rate lower than public systems, but workable for parents dedicated to home schooling.

17.- A national health care system not owned by big pharma interests so that costs can be a small fraction of today’s health costs once economic incentives for healthier eating habits are in effect and research showing the effectiveness of alternative natural health practices and the destructiveness of many conventional health treatments are revealed.

18.- Restoration of the Bill of Rights – freedom to assemble (without a parade permit!), freedom of speech (with “fair use” for commentary and historical limits on patents and copyrights to ensure that after a sufficient time all works become public domain), freedom of religion (even if practicing the religion requires one to refuse to participate in killing of humans under any circumstances—such as paying taxes to fund the war machines), … and more.

19.- Restoration of freedom to build and live in an owner-designed and owner built-home, especially if it is off the grid so that the owner’s decisions affect no one besides themselves.

20.- The cessation of income taxes in favor of pollution taxes (to be paid to and used by local governments), wealth taxes (capital gains and stock transaction fees).

21.- The elimination of all electronic voting machines in favor of highly redundant and transparent systems utilizing multiple, independent optical scanning vote counters, web confirmation and paper ballots suitable for supporting instant runoff voting (aka preference voting) so that third parties have a fair chance to emerge.

22.- Disclosure of all UFO and ET-related information currently being held by numerous governments.

23.- Disclosure of any and all covert government programs that directly or indirectly impact the health and/or well-being of fellow citizens.

24.-Complete preservation and restoration of all internet freedoms.

25.-Wide scale aggressive cultivation of plants to sequester carbon and help to bring global warming under control (alongside efforts to phase out fossil fuel use).

26.- Disclosure of any atmospheric geo-engineering programs (including alleged “chem-trails” and cessation of spraying any and all toxic materials.

27.- Investigation and prosecution of CIA drug traffickers and other government agents involved in illegal activities.

28.- Investigation and prosecution of CIA personal involved in flag operations around the world and at home, that rendered false positive
for imaginary and invented terror cells.

29.- The dismantling of NATO, UN and any other globalists entities that sole purpose is to centralize power and control the world.

30.- The introduction of a program of re-learning for Army and police personal to be re-educated in their role to serve society and protect humanity.

Gaza Siege become Global Affairs; The World Against Israel


Posted by Marivel Guzman

The world saw with outrage and disbelief how the gangs got together to enforce an illegal blockade even by United Nations standards.

And we are taking in consideration the double standards of the body of Shame that the world have suffered since 1945 when its charter was officially signed, but the real world mess started back in 1916 when a few globalists decided to formed what was known as the League of NATIONS. Which is the same clown with different make up.

In September, 1916, Robert Cecil, a member of the British government, wrote a memorandum where he argued that civilization could survive only if it could develop an international system that would insure peace.

We have to give ourselves a pad on the back to the citizenry of the world that by our resistance to the take over and annihilation of our human race we have survived against the organized powers of the War Complex Machine, do not let yourself fool that the regional conflicts staged by the Mafia War around every country in the globe was to bring peace or harmony. Every conflict ever suffered for a group of people, towns, city, country, or continent was always brought upon the people by the same powers that praise themselves to be the saviors, but in the back of the stage they have been brewing the plots to kill the resistance, to kill the dreams of freedom, or independence or and most of the time merely the dreams to live a simple life without the burden of the “Civilized World” as did happen to every indigenous group in the world.

Fools Fools all the armies in the world that lend themselves to raise their hands against their brothers, their sisters, their mothers, their fathers, their land. Fools all the minds that with their soft talking and speeches instill the seed of violence in weak peoples minds. Fools all the people that let themselves be pawns of the Selfish, gluttony of the Mafia Wars. We will be FOOLS if we don’t ACT.

Have you seen your backyard? full of thorns, ravaged by wars, chaos fueled by invented religious conflicts that do not exist but in the flashing silver screen of your TV Set and your History books. There is no such religious intolerance in our world. That was hatched down from some clever evil minds, and fueled by the weakness of the simple people’s mind. All the rhetoric used against us, the ordinary citizens of the world.

We have been played out since immemorial times and time and time again, the resilient force of the people to survive have save us of complete annihilation, Resisting the most cruel forces our world has raised to see. Every time the People have won against their oppressors, their tormentors. Even with the blood shed that our world has seen at the end, we have won every battle, because always the seeds of deception have been exposed.
We can glorify our generals of war, the Presidents, dictators or any official character ever been in power in our History books, but the Heroes that made possible the survival of the race throughout the resistance are the ones that will survive time, and their memories will live forever. We own to them that we still exist. The Seed that was planted in human hearts is compassion, that can not be lost to a bullet, can not be lost in time. We win every time that we survive a battle. The resistance is the wheels that hold our world from being stopped.

We see now ourselves again in the verge of annihilation and again like a bad dream we are waking up to recognize the deception, and we are uniting as a great force against this Monster that have poisoned the minds of few generations, The Zionist Movement Globalist-Elitist Group that sprout like a poison Evvy hydra around the world is watching its demise thru Israel spoil child, that with her tantrums fooled the world for 60 years. But the real culprits the ones that raised this little monster that used the people’s hearts, with victimization of their own race, and portraying a religious intolerance that really never existed but in the books and the TV.

The ones still under the spell of the Zionist Power will realize sooner than later how foolish they were. There is no surprise that great number of Israel own citizens are backing up the Palestinian Resistance, and there is no crime in doing so, because once again the People is raising against the oppressor. There is no crime in dissenting the ugliness of the State of Israel dress up as a sheep, we all can hear the howls of the wolf, we can be fool one time, but not all the time.

Israel abused the leverage she had on the world, and played with the intellect of the people for long time, and she created her own destruction. Israel is dying and swimming in her own mud of deception and lies. She can not control the PR Propaganda any longer, is too late to savage her theater of powerful bully. What it took Israel 63 years to built with Lies and Deceit. The Gaza Strip Illegal and Inhumane siege has to be remember by the Zionist as the spot in the mirror that blur the fake glory of Israel, the 4 years of siege imposed in Gaza Population showed to the world what a sadistic minds were behind Israel creation and imposition to the world.

The own backers of this monster the United Nations Club can not look the other way, when the world is forcing them to do their job, at least in paper, but these reports on the erratic behavior of Israel will be the ones that officially will take her to the bench to respond for her crimes.

In the light of resolution S-9 adopted by the Human Rights Council at its ninth special session,
this report focus on the main international law and human rights issues raised by Israel military
operations commencing on 27 December 2008 and ending on 18 January 2009. It challenges the
widespread emphasis on whether Israeli force was ‘disproportionate’ in relation to Palestinian
threats to Israeli security, and focuses on the prior question as to whether Israeli force was
legally justified at all. It concludes that such recourse to force was not legally justified given the
circumstances and diplomatic alternatives available, and was potentially a crime against peace.

/ Read the Report

The Representative of this Body of Shame can pretend doing their job and Israel can even laugh at what she thinks is another blow to our Intelligence, but we are all taking note and getting together. The impunity can not last much longer that it has.

We seen millions of people adding themselves to the resistance to the destructive forces. Do not let yourselves be convinced that Resistance to the war is a crime, don’t be fooled to believe that dissenters are criminals. We all are one voice against violence, against intolerance, against hate, against the Status Quo that was sold to us.

The moment has come to stand up against the enemies of peace. We all want peace. We are fighting against the War. The only enemies of the People are the armies that are brain washed. The soldiers that are thought to fight us, when in reality they are fighting against them selves. Because they are pawns in the game. They are defending the king that do not care for them, and without blinking an eye, the king will sacrifice 6.5 billions souls to himself, even if he knows that he will be the only survivor. What a shame. Forfeit your game, get out while you can. Save yourself, and by doing so, you safe your family, and your world.

Do not allow to be the pawn any more. You are human, forget the tactics of war, that taught you to obey without thinking. You are human and you deserve also to live in peace. All the world in these critical moments are taking charge of our destinies. You see it, be alive to live it.

The Jasmine Revolution is not an accident in time, or the Egyptian Revolution is not the continuation of the people madness, but the contrary, that was the beginning of the global awareness, that is sweeping our world. How many more brothers we want to see death before we all WAKE UP once and for all. How many more Earth destruction we want to see before we all STAND UP FOR US.

Israel may think she is winning this battle, she is wrong. She already LOST. And you saw it in the NEWS..running around like a little brat, making tantrums calling the attention of the people, but no one listen to her anymore. Only the numb and deaf few leaders that think that they will hold to the chair. They also are digging their graves. Do you really think that Greek Prime Minister will survived and stay in power? Absolutely not..according to the NEWS:

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou survived a confidence vote in parliament early Wednesday, winning a gamble on his government’s survival and the danger of a devastating debt default that could spark a financial maelstrom around the world.

Papandreou had called the vote, which passed early Wednesday morning, to face down an internal party revolt and help him pass deeply disliked austerity measures that have provoked strikes, protests and a slump in his popularity.

Lawmakers voted 155-143 for the motion, with two abstentions in the 300-member legislature, sticking strictly to party lines after a heated debate that saw sections of the opposition briefly walk out of the chamber.

Outside, several thousand protesters chanted “Thieves! thieves!” and other anti-austerity slogans, shining green laser lights at the parliament building and into the eyes of riot police protecting it.

Do you really think that even this vote of “Confidence” that he won will apace the people outside? Do you really think that the storm that The Greek government created stopping the Humanitarian Mission to Gaza flotillas will end up just there with a few protests. NO! NO!, is the beginning of the end. Seems that another head is about to fall. The invisible revolution is taking shape stronger by the minute.

Do you wonder WORLD!, why Israel was running around sending memorandums, sabotaging the flotillas, sending fake reports, I mean all the trickery that Israel knows, she used them all at once, when she knew that she could not do the same as last time. So she thought that cleaning her hands will save her from the shame.

Wrong again, this just prove again how low the State of Israel has fallen if it could have been lower. Allow me to laugh. Now she is seeing her being laugh of, is as if the world played a bad joke on her. Because compassion of the world is something she was not thinking of it, she has no heart or think on that feeling. We Win, PALESTINE WIN AGAIN, GAZA WIN ISRAEL LOSE, just watch the unfolding of her destruction by her own hands. We the resistance win again, I know is not over yet, she will fight as a cat feet up, scratching anything and everything that cross her claws, but Israel is sinking.

Ehud Barak, Israel’s Defense Minister, on May 16. Responding to non-violent protests at Israeli borders and military posts, he said,

“The Palestinians’ transition from terrorism and suicide bombings to deliberately unarmed mass demonstrations is a transition that will present us with difficult challenges.”

Even the CIA that shadow of the world, had pronounce her death, CIA gives 20 years. LOL..that is too good to be true for Israel. I give her less than 10, her own citizens the that see the boat sinking are jumping out, they are reclaiming their second citizenship, to have it ready to flee the scene. Go Figure. And you must listen to the Shadow as is she who has been behind the deaths of more than 200 millions people around the world since its creation.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says the idea of “Greater Israel”– the main motto of the Zionist founders of the Israeli regime– is dead.
“‘Greater Israel’ is finished. There is no such thing as that anymore. Whoever talks in those terms is only deluding himself,” the prime minister admitted at a cabinet meeting. Sep 14, 2008

UN was Formed, April 25, 1945, 15 months later

CIA was Formed, September 18, 1947, And 8 months later

Israel was founded, May 14, 1948, 11 months later

NATO was created, April 4, 1949

These 4 entities since its creation they have created more terror in the world, and killed more people than the two Wars Combined.

And United States of North-America, July 4, 1776 sadly is behind all the 4..

Not all the leaders are numbed by the sickness of corruption, fear, greed and power some have stood up against the giants adding their efforts to that of the People.

Audacity of Hope” bound for Gaza early Saturday, July 2. The boat was stopped at gunpoint by the Greek coast guard Friday, July 1, and forced to move to a Military Compound in Athens. Below is her statement.
It was truly inspirational for me to speak to the people at the Boat who had just been faced with death if they would not turn back to port as ordered by the Greek Military. I managed to speak to many of the people on board who were shaken by the events the night before. Despite the setback, all of them felt determined to carry on with the mission of aid and solidarity with the people suffering in Gaza.
This project is the embodiment of hope and it is a powerful attempt to expose the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. At the boat I met people of all ages, backgrounds and colors. All of them had in common a beautiful and strong urge to take selfless action for the greater good of humanity.

We only have one hope to save ourselves once again. STAY HUMAN.
