WikiLeaks: CIA Cyber "Weapons" Are Loose in the Wild

Written by  C. Mitchell Shaw

On Tuesday, WikiLeaks released the first part of a “new series of leaks on the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency” which shows the CIA has been secretly building an arsenal of hacking tools and an army of hackers to rival — if not exceed — the hacking capabilities of the NSA.

The leaked documents also show that the CIA — in a move reminiscent of the Keystone Kops — “lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal” allowing it to fall into the hands of hackers who have even less moral constraint than the CIA (if that were possible).

The WikiLeaks disclosures — code-named “Vault 7” by the whistleblower website — “is the largest ever publication of confidential documents on the [CIA],” according to a press release issued by WikiLeaks. In a departure from previous releases — including the infamous CableGate disclosures — which were published in toto, WikiLeaks announced that they have:

decided to redact and anonymise some identifying information in "Year Zero" for in depth analysis. These redactions include ten of thousands of CIA targets and attack machines throughout Latin America, Europe and the United States. While we are aware of the imperfect results of any approach chosen, we remain committed to our publishing model and note that the quantity of published pages in "Vault 7" part one (“Year Zero”) already eclipses the total number of pages published over the first three years of the Edward Snowden NSA leaks.

The outcome of all this simply confirms the growing suspicions the American public has known for years. Big Brother spying by the government to maintain control of the people by those we elect is now proven. And it's only growing more and more every time the liberals get into power! So is it the American people they are protecting? Hunting enemies of the state? And that include those citizens that protest or dissent the current government. Or are those in office doing it to ensure they stay there by what ever means at their disposal.

President Trump needs to call the CIA Director into his office for an IMMEDIATE explanation of how this crap got implemented, and then DIRECT him to cease all of these illegal spying on American activities!

Exposing the corruption, illegal and nefarious activities of our Govt a good thing. The spying and spraying toxic chemicals...aka..Chemtrail Geo Engineering on the little people is 1984ish.

If our intelligence agencies are ever to be relevant again? The good uncompromised men and women had better root out the political hacks that have bastardized their integrity!! We need our intelligence agencies for the protection of our country!! Right now they are proving to be useless!

This information about how the CIA hacks into other communications and cyberspace is a very good indication that the CIA and NSA had Trump and his staff under survaillance. This explains why all the information about Trump and his staff were revealled to the media. It certainly appears that people in the Obama Admin were using these methods to spy on Trump and his staff and use the information adversely to influence the election. The Russian issue had come from the CIA and NAS people. The head of the NSA and CIA denied it, but they lie about everything, which even more reinforces it that the Obama used these intelligence agencies for political purposes against Trump. They did not use it against Crooked Hillary, even thought they knew that she was so careless with classified information that it amounts to High Treason and the numerous bribes that she received for political favors.

100% right on...It's selective intelligence gathering...the CIA and FBI are on board with the New World Order Globalists and will continue spying on Trump unless he purges these miscreants.

Obama should never been allowed to finish his 2nd term. He is a Muslim Trojan horse.Our government was undermined bu domestic and foreign interests. Lucky for us we stood up to that bull shit and elected someone to stand for America. I hope Trump will put all the enemy bastards in prison for life.

Forget the politicians and appointees. Who is really running this government ?? We vote but nothing seems to change. Too many agencies competing for power or using it for their own benefit. This is not just a swamp; it's a sub-culture.
