Ed Snowden’s magic thumb drive and other NSA fantasies

Ed Snowden’s magic thumb drive and other NSA fantasies

by Jon Rappoport

June 15, 2013


Well, they’ve solved the riddle. Ed Snowden was able to steal thousands of highly protected NSA documents because…he had a thumb drive.

This is the weapon that breached the inner sanctum of the most sophisticated information agency in the world.

This is the weapon to which the NSA, with all its resources, remains utterly vulnerable. Can’t defeat it.

NSA bans thumb drives, but certain special employees are allowed to use them.

Would Snowden have been in that elite circle? He was an outside contractor who’d been assigned to the NSA, and he was only there for four weeks, on his latest tour, when he did the infamous deed and then departed, never to return.

Not only did Snowden stroll into NSA with a thumb drive, he knew how to navigate all the security layers put in place to stop people from stealing classified documents.

Far more likely? As I described in my prior article, Snowden was really working for his former employer, the CIA. People at the CIA were able to steal those NSA documents, and they handed them to Snowden. All part of the endless turf war between the CIA, NSA, and other intelligence agencies.

Moving right along, Barbara Honegger, a former analyst at the White House during the Reagan years, makes a crucial point: US intelligence agencies can get around domestic spying laws by allowing other countries to spy on US citizens.

England, for example. This scandal is sitting there ready to explode.

NSA works out a deal whereby British agencies can access electronic communications in the US. Then, the Brits give the tons of data to NSA. Therefore, NSA didn’t directly steal.

It’s “sharing.”

Oh no, we didn’t steal. We allowed other people to steal. Then they gave us what they stole. Of course, we are also, in fact, stealing and spying in the US, 24/7, but that’s another story for another time…”

It’s called redundancy. NSA spies on Americans, the Brits spy on Americans, and NSA stores everything, just to make sure they’ve covered all the bases. Twice.

Taking this one step further, NSA would be spying on British citizens, too. That’s “reciprocity.”

Exit From the Matrix

Here’s a fantasy for you. Terrorists all over the world were just shocked into a panic, because Ed Snowden “told them” the NSA has been spying on the Internet.

Therefore, all those emails, photos, and videos the terrorists have been sending to each other online for years? Spied on. Intercepted. Wow. What a revelation.

The terrorists never considered that possibility before. This is what Pentagon, NSA, CIA chiefs, and incensed Congress people would have us believe.

Let’s see. Terrorists just realized the Internet isn’t safe. Jack and the Beanstalk. Two fairy tales. Hold one in each hand. Weigh them. I’d believe Jack and the Beanstalk over the other fantasy, if I had to choose.

Author John Loftus, several years ago, pointed out that there already existed miles of incriminating data on the Muslim Brotherhood in US intelligence-agency files. Yet nothing was being done about it.

In other words, tons of NSA data on innocent Americans were being collected. And the valuable stuff on guilty parties was being ignored. A real laugher.

Imagine the sub voce reaction of the Muslim Brotherhood:

Brotherhood spokesman, Mr. Cash On Delivery, Jr., stated, “We in the Brotherhood have nothing to fear. We’re all proxies. We fight for Western shadow elites. They pay us to destabilize countries to advance a Globalist-controlled planet. Internet spying? Who cares? We’re doing just fine. In fact, there’s a mile of incriminating data on us in NSA computers. Nobody does anything with it. Guess why.”

Then there is China. Snowden’s most recent leak reveals the NSA has been hacking Chinese government computers. Another walloping shocker. Can you even remain standing in the face of this one? Feeling dizzy with surprise? Sit down. Drink a glass of water.

The spy-vs.-spy scenario between China and the US has been playing out for decades. By now, it’s so complicated probably no one on either side understands it fully.

Yes, major thefts of vital info have occurred. But, aware of the ongoing hacking war, China and US have undoubtedly been cooking up whole databases of false and misleading information to be stolen.

It’s basically a jobs program. And Snowden’s revelation about it is about as stunning as sunny weather in Palm Springs.

John Young, at Cryptome, correctly indicates that the overriding issue in the Snowden affair is “architecture.” The actual structure of spying, the whole machine. If Snowden comprehends that, then we’re talking about something worth revealing.

Not just the US machine, but the global apparatus. The interconnected spying system collectively employed by many nations.

Snowden seems to be saying he has this knowledge.

I have doubts. I’d bet against it. I think he’s inventing script.

The Matrix Revealed

Still waiting to be uncovered? NSA spying to collect elite financial data, spying on the people who have that data: the major investment banks. NSA scooping up that data to predict, manipulate, and profit from trading markets all over the world.

A trillion-dollar operation.

Snowden worked for Booz Allen, which is owned by the Carlyle Group ($170 billion in assets). Carlyle, the infamous. Their money is making money in 160 investment funds.

A few of Carlyle’s famous front men in its history: George HW Bush, James Baker (US Secretary of State), Frank Carlucci (US Secretary of Defense and CIA Deputy Director), John Major (British Prime Minister), Arthur Levitt (Chairman of the SEC).

Suppose you’re one of the princes in the NSA castle, and Ed Snowden has just gone public with your documents. You’re saying, “Let’s see, this kid worked for Booz Allen, which is owned by the Carlyle Group. We’ve been spying over Carlyle’s shoulder, stealing their proprietary financial data. What are the chances they’re getting a little revenge on us now?”

Yes, you’re thinking about that. You’re looking into it.

Scandals, and how they’re presented to the public through the press, are rarely what they seem.

The players are different, their motives are different, and they’re trading blows in a different arena.

They’re accessing the Matrix and manipulating it at levels invisible to the general public, who are trained by mass media to look in the wrong direction.

The NSA, CIA, and Carlyle would be settling their differences behind the curtain.

    Keep it coming, Jon. Coach B

    Great article and insight. Thanks. Things with Snowden just did not add up in my mind (the msm story).

    Reblogged this on Jericho777's Blog.

    wouldn’t it be in foreign interests to reveal the US spies on its own? Isnt China protecting him in hong kong, and for revealing the US spies on China? Doesn’t Ed have to be protected by foreign agencies to survive? Isnt his revelations a deal?

  5. NSA has been spying on Windows users from 1999 and before and it has going on for a long time.
    “Computer security specialists have been aware for two years that unusual features are contained inside a standard Windows software “driver” used for security and encryption functions. The driver, called ADVAPI.DLL, enables and controls a range of security functions. If you use Windows, you will find it in the C:\Windows\system directory of your computer.

    ADVAPI.DLL works closely with Microsoft Internet Explorer, but will only run cryptographic functions that the US governments allows Microsoft to export. That information is bad enough news, from a European point of view. Now, it turns out that ADVAPI will run special programmes inserted and controlled by NSA. As yet, no-one knows what these programmes are, or what they do.”

  6. I can’t figure out why everyone is so shocked by this “leak”. We’ve known we were being spied on. I’ve been a web developer for a long time. 15+ years ago all the guys in the IT department use to joke about the government spies snooping on the servers and would find references in code. I can’t remember what they were calling it (may have been Echelon, but I can’t remember). They weren’t so sophisticated yet and were still covering their tracks. This was when the Internet was still brand new and the only people that would have know anything was amiss were the uber-geeks. The good thing that has come out of this is we now have “proof” that they are indeed spying on us. It has also helped to wake people up, but why now? I’m suspicious of the timing and the ease this guy was able to load the files on a thumb drive. Any chance Snowden could have been helped by the White Hats? If not, then I’m concerned something sinister might be brewing…

    My theory is that Glenn Greenwald was indeed tapped into some very important “leaks”, and was not even halfway through releasing them. Then “Edward Snowden” pops up and outs himself right in the middle of the roll-out. The media conversation then predictably shifts to being about Snowden personally, and off down another rabbit hole we go. Then all of a sudden Snowden is cozying up to the Chinese, so don’t you see he can’t be trusted after all. Forget all the stuff about NSA spying– the man’s a traitor!

    GG is just the latest to learn that you can’t fight THEM on their turf, which is broadcast media. They will deflect and bury you every time.

  8. Teresa says:

    BTW, TPTB love to tweak people right out in the open. “Snowden” is such a funny name, as in we’ve been “snowed”.

    Our entire world is one monstrous lie. E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. It has been so for the better part of the last 100 years, although in reality much longer than that. It will continue to be until that day that the music stops.

  10. Ever heard of a “honey trap”……???

    There’s no way amigos…that you are going to sacrifice this kind of “poontang” at the begining of your relationship and face multiple life sentences with the roughest of alpha-butt-destroying males all for the sake of telling people what they already basically knew….only if “she” was an agent provocatuer and insisted that he was not getting any more “nookie” until he stood up and became a real man…..then of course she would join him in Hong Kong and give him the blow job of his life….

    It is all fair game the cyberspace evolution. just wonderful sure that many are just so happy only how to turn it into money for everbody.

    he used a usb…. impossible. i worked at a health company sourced for medicare part b and d. we were around sensitive information called HIPPA. we logged onto a cloud server where we could no longer even access our hard drives, let alone a functioning usb drive. the program was called Citrux. people need to think.

    As I commented before and it does not look like Jon had the balls to pickup on… obviously the Ashkenazi… are in a fight… the world gov. side wants to continue with the slow burn of the Fabians towards a world state while supporting Israel… the Zionists want the same thing after… Iran is taken down and Obama’s tribal controllers… are the former.

    Concerning Snowden… I seem to recall that a guy named Bill Gates did not make it through his freshmen year at Harvard and that Richard Feynman was out of high school or 19 or something when he was tapped to do statistics etc. at the Manhattan project I believe.

    Although your ideas on this leak may be in part…correct in some way… Rush Limbaugh seemed somehow sympathetic in the clip I heard today!! to Mr. Snowden…always a bad sign that the Israeli Lobby is involved in anything and Limbaugh is their long well used…whore.


    They are bureaucracies for the Imperium … their employees number in the tens of thousands… and their contractors in War/Dope Inc and the latter’s washing of drugs… are a fabulously greater number.

    The question needs to be asked…rather… how is not a LOT more getting out… and that is because the media is Ashkenazi primarily own up and down and sideways… how about concerning your pretty little head with that Mr…. Rappoport… … … … ?

    Agreed. It got boring faster than Wikileaks. A bit of a dust up between the NSA and CIA on behalf of their real masters) seems very likely all this is. Sad to see the truth starved masses being fed this processed takeaway shit and thinking it’s gourmet fare.

  15. Mr. Rappoport, a few years ago I would have said you’re a tin foil hat wearing wack job. Today I believe anything you say is more than just possible, it’s highly likely. However, regardless of the game and the players, the fact remains that Snowden provided proof that the government is spying on us. The fact that he may have been manipulated, or that one cannot believe that he would give up his job or god forbid, his hot girlfiend, does not mean he is a traitor.

  16. Kevin Brent says:

    Yes, thumb drives were banned. However, there were no teeth to the order at all. No one went around and removed USB ports from computers, no one kept an eye to see if anyone was using thumb drives or not. And, Writable CD’s were still permitted. Why? Because it would have been humanly impossible to monitor who was doing what.

    Banning thumb drives was stupid and the reason was nothing more than internet lore about a super-duper Chinese imbedded software program inside the thumb drive. It was pure, idiotic fantasy.

    And, as I said above. Writable CDs were never banned and if you have those, you don’t need a thumb drive.
