On Way Out of Office, Obama, Get This, Conferred Broad New Powers on the NSA Giving Them Right to Share Unredacted Classified Information With All Intelligence-Related Agencies

Hmmm, I wonder why he did that on his way out the door and with his loyalists still in the government and ready, willing, and now enabled to leak classified NSA intercepts to the press?

Michael Walsh notes this January 12, 2017 report from the New York Times which received little attention when it was published.

But now Walsh is very attentive towards it.

From the NYT (link in Walsh's article):

In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government's 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.

The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.


The change means that far more officials will be searching through raw data. Essentially, the government is reducing the risk that the N.S.A. will fail to recognize that a piece of information would be valuable to another agency, but increasing the risk that officials will see private information about innocent people.

Does anyone think a conversation like this might have occurred?:

FLUNKY: The FBI has found nothing criminal on Flynn. But the NSA has wiretaps of Flynn and other Trump aides, but they can't get the information out under current rules.

OBAMA: Can we just have the NSA leak this stuff?

FLUNKY: The NSA doesn't want to do that because there are very small circulation lists for such highly classified intercepts, and it would be pretty easy to find the leakers and prosecute them. Plus, they actually don't even want to admit they're transcribing people's phone calls. But if we could get the information out to our loyalists in the DOJ, FBI, and CIA, they could paw through the intercepts, and leak them to the press. Now there'd be hundreds of people who could leak this stuff -- and they'd be hard to find. The list of possible leakers now expands from 5-10 to 50-500. As you know from your community organizing days, saboteurs and subversives need masses to swim amongst, if they're to remain undetected.

OBAMA: I've got tee time in 20 minutes. Tell me what I need to sign.

FLUNKY: I already signed it for you, Sir. I didn't want you to lose any finger strength on your drives.

In the meanwhile, Trump is appointing an ally to "review" the intelligence agencies and how they operate.

President Trump plans to assign a New York billionaire to lead a broad review of American intelligence agencies, according to administration officials, an effort that members of the intelligence community fear could curtail their independence and reduce the flow of information that contradicts the president’s worldview.

The possible role for Stephen A. Feinberg, a co-founder of Cerberus Capital Management, has met fierce resistance among intelligence officials already on edge because of the criticism the intelligence community has received from Mr. Trump during the campaign and since he became president.

7 Man, I got Willowed :

LOVED the presser...that has been a LOOOOOOOOOONG time coming

On
the subject of "where are all the f'ng Immigrants day"....do they expect
to impress by being lazy fucks and refusing to work because their
feelings got hurt? Or perhaps they think that noone will look around and
say "damn, my kid who is currently living in my basement could be doing
that framing/roofing/landscaping/cleaning job and make ok $".

Or
that maybe people will look around in their child's classroom and think
"So THIS is what its like when the teacher has students that all speak
English and there is a reasonable Teacher/Student ratio? Cool!"

52 You know, one thing I haven't seen pontificated upon is why, exactly, the CIA and others in the "intelligence community" dislike Trump so much. I mean beyond the normal partisanness of the bureaucracy.

I think it all goes back to that primary debate where Trump said that Bush purposely lied to get us in to the Iraq war. I think the CIA (who was pushing the weapons of mass destruction line for a decade before the invasion) took that as a personal affront.

If I recall correctly, Trump also made some disparaging comments about the CIA and WMD around that time as well.

I think that kind of off-hand comment from Trump is what started the ball rolling with all of this.

I also think its very dangerous for the deep state to be in a cold war with the president.

It also lends credence to a lot of more conspiracy theory things that have been floating around for a while -- if the "intelligence community" is willing to openly leak and presumably try to influence events in this way, maybe it's not so crazy to think that some unexplainable events in the past few years (or decades) were driven by blackmailing by the intelligence community. Maybe we should revisit why the chief justice seemingly changed his view on the constitutionality of obamacare after all...

us - the People. The NYC - DC club still dismisses our voice. The only voices that matter to them are antifa and the vag hats.

They didn't get it when at the rallys during the campaign the crowds chanted at CNN: TELL THE TRUTH - over and over.

And they still don't. I wonder what Sharyl Atkisson is thinking?

91 What are peoples favorite parts of the press conference?
--

Mentioning Hillary, uranium and the idiotic reset button was nice.

Also liked the part where he basically said "It's not bad to have a good relationship with Russia. But you'll report that I'm in league with them," or something of that sort.

Finally, asking the reporter to set up a meeting with the CBC was classic.

Also, any time he says "be quiet" and/or "sit down" is always a win with me.

98 One of the reasons the US has been stable for so long, is that we always had competing agencies.

We always had another group who could be used to counteract the Power of a single group...

ie... we could send the Marines, if the Army became a Problem.

We could send the US Marshall's to arrest an out of control FBI, or vice versa.

And we used to have competing Intelligence agencies... The DIA, CIA, NSA, and internally FBI and Secret Service... could all be used to counteract the others.... to WATCH the others...

Now, they are all under one roof... and we are seeing the result as they have essentially declared War on President Trump.

104 From wiki:

"Throughout Dwyer's trial and after his conviction, he maintained that he was innocent of the charges levied against him, and that he had been framed. Decades later, it was reported that the prosecution's primary witness, William T. Smith, whose testimony was largely used to obtain Dwyer's conviction, admitted in a documentary about Dwyer that he had lied under oath about Dwyer taking a bribe in order to receive a reduced sentence.[6] In fact, Smith acknowledges, as he did at Dwyer's trial, that he had lied in his own earlier trial when he testified that he had not offered Dwyer a bribe. He admitted that he testified against Dwyer in hopes of receiving a reduced sentence and to spare his wife from being prosecuted for her role in the conspiracy, and expressed his regret for that decision and the role it played in Dwyer's death.[7]"

If I recall correctly, Trump also made some disparaging comments about the CIA and WMD around that time as well.

I think that kind of off-hand comment from Trump is what started the ball rolling with all of this.
Posted by: Harry Paratestes at February 16, 2017 02:41 PM (wmaTe)

Yes, it was some kind of come back about the intelligence community being wrong in WMD in Iraq. He added something about not being able to rely on them.

I don't think that is the sole issue though. I think there has been enough illegal crap hidden from Congress, but facilitated by the CIA that they don't want getting noticed. Such as gun running in Libya, which got an ambassador killed. The Iran deal, where we flew gold bars to the mullahs. And who knows what that we don't know about.

Additionally, we need a real review of national security policies.

I've long thought that we should segregate intelligence to specific crimes.

If the NSA intercepts information about drug deals or routine corruption they should NOT be allowed to share it.

Terrorism? That they can share with the FBI or appropriate domestic police organizations - but that includes plans for mass attacks and the like.

And then military related information - troops movements, orgs preparing attacks on American military overseas, etc - to the DOD.

And seriously the death penalty for any intentionally mis-shared information.

So I think the CIA took that comment as Trump saying "the CIA lied the american people in to war."

The CIA stabbed Bush in the back multiple times so I don't think their actions now are any noble defense of Trump's Bush bashing.
Posted by: Sebastian Melmoth at February 16, 2017 02:48 PM (Q3fP7)

Yeah, but I don't think they took it as an attack on Bush. I think they took it as an attack on them. Remember, Clinton and the entire congress in the 90's and '00s were also saying Iraq had WMD and that all intelligence agencies agreed. The CIA was oft cited in those proclamations.

So I think the CIA took that comment as Trump saying "the CIA lied the american people in to war."

Could be wrong though. I don't have any special insight or knowledge, I'm just speculating.

Yup, the 'War on Terror' has been fought with the intelligence communities in charge...

To access the information, maybe. But there's no way the CIA doesn't use the same kind of access restrictions that corporate america uses, which would mean that everyone who accessed the information is logged. So it would be relatively easy to backtrack who leaked it based on access logs.

It would require some kind of cover up from above to either wipe those logs or not pursue it, which is why I think it would take more than one or two people.

Because who would risk losing their job, security clearance, and facing jail time if they thought that their leaks would be immediately discovered and they would be caught within hours of the leaks being made public?

I mean it's possible, but... the fact that it hasn't happened yet is beyond bizarre.

175 52 You know, one thing I haven't seen pontificated upon is why, exactly, the CIA and others in the "intelligence community" dislike Trump so much. I mean beyond the normal partisanness of the bureaucracy.

I think it all goes back to that primary debate where Trump said that Bush purposely lied to get us in to the Iraq war. I think the CIA (who was pushing the weapons of mass destruction line for a decade before the invasion) took that as a personal affront.

If I recall correctly, Trump also made some disparaging comments about the CIA and WMD around that time as well.

I think that kind of off-hand comment from Trump is what started the ball rolling with all of this.

It should be incredibly easy to find out. Access logs will narrow it down to a small number of people, and then backtrack who had a legit reason for accessing, etc.

I would think they could figure it out in a matter of hours. I know a company I worked for went through a similar thing when a customer database ended up over at a competitor. Took less than a day to find out who did it based on access logs to the information and network activity. And that was in a company where thousands of people were accessing the database daily.

How many people would have had a legit reason to look at transcripts of calls between the presidents of the US and Mexico? Probably not many. Start there.

229 I think when the election results were in, the White House spent the next month working out what executive orders they could do to screw over the new guy, like strewing mines all over the white house.

This crap has gotten so bad every time parties change power that in 2009, congress passed a law allowing incoming presidents to bulk eliminate last-minute executive orders. Ordinarily its a one-at-a-time affair, but its always crap every time. Its a cross between "well I couldn't get away with this if I was staying in office" and "I'm gonna screw this guy."

For example, upon leaving office, President Clinton signed an EO that ordered lead levels in water reduced by like 100 times the minimum safe level. Bush took office, reversed it, and OSPIRG knocked on my door crying that the new evil Republican is increasing lead levels in water!!!!

Or the gun ban. in the last weeks, Obama signs an executive order grossly expanding the definition of "mental instability" in social security recipients (mostly elderly) preventing them from purchasing firearms. Reversing it sounds craaaaaaaaaaazy, but keeping it is stupid and insulting.

232 People were rightly concerned when GWB loosened the restrictions on the IC, and it could be debated if his approved methods were justified to protect the people from terrorist attacks.

It was Obama who removed the restraints altogether. The fishnet approach to meta-data collection and storage should be seen as a massive overreach and a clear violation of the 4th Amendment protections. But of course, Obama would further open Pandora's box.

There is no reason the other members of the IC need the technical data from SIGINT collection. But I guess if I want to follow somebody who is a bit disgruntled, if I have access to the electronic leash, I can get them.

Right, I get that. But we're still talking, say, dozens of people who had the clearance and the legit reason to access this data? Maybe hundreds?

Look at the logs, when the info was accessed and why (so the guy who accessed the info but was working on something having to do with mexican- US relationships is a lower priority to investigate then the guy working on African dictators), and then look at all network activity of that person around that time -- it should be pretty straight forward to figure out.

Or at least narrow down to a few people.

248 --I'm trying to remember that Wilson Niger--thing too but--anyways.
***
Saudi Arabia wanted to try and take down Bush 43, not really because of the Iraq War, but because he was pressuring them to liberalize.

Joe Wilson IV was on the Saudi payroll. Wilson and his wife got the CIA to send him on a mission to establish that Iraq never tried to buy uranium from Niger.

The problem? Everyone in Niger told Wilson that Iraq tried to buy uranium from them.

So he came back, gave an honest report to his wife's boss. Then he wrote an article for the NYT (IIRC) saying the opposite of what he told the CIA.

The CIA fired the wife's boss for farking up.

The GOPe and IC thought this was ridiculous and told the Fake News Media so - including Colin Powell's #2, Armitage, who specifically told them that Wilson's wife was CIA.

The Fake News Media saw an opening though and ran with it.

Bush 43 and the GOPe had no idea how to respond, and the FNM created a bizarre conspiracy that got Scooter Libby sent to jail.

252 "an effort that members of the intelligence community fear could curtail their independence and reduce the flow of information that contradicts the president's worldview"

Oh, yes, of course.

Because during the Obama years, the intel and natsec communities were _all about_ providing information that contradicted the president's worldview. Why, they were briefing Obama every working day and half the weekends, with hard data and tough analyses which proved he'd been wrong on key points.

Because Obama just gladly welcomed that kind of pushback from people who reported to him. Yep. You can take that to the bank.

[Dem] Oh that corrupt politician's Democrat protege. This new politician says exactly the same things as the last one, only he said *he* isn't corrupt...it will be great!

[Me] But...the last guy said exactly the same things and he will govern the same damn way...and you just said you wanted something different?!?

[Dem] But voting for someone who isn't the choice of the Democrat establish might lead to change...and I don't want change like that!

Posted by: SFGoth at February 16, 2017 03:22 PM (dZ756)


Not really. The biggest screw-up that could have prevented 9/11 was that we had the 20th hijacker in custody and weren't "allowed" to look at his computer, which had lots of the plans on it. This was thanks to some douchebag federal judge and the general attitude in Washington that non-citizens, somehow, have all sorts of great rights here that we just have to suffer through.

The other problem we had with 9/11 was that we had pretty much ZERO human intelligence ... because we had grown too sophisticated and cool for backward stuff like that. And a good part of human intelligence is beating the crap out of foreigners in foreign lands until they spill their plans. And we are far too moral for backward stuff like that ...

The thing about our intel services sharing information wasn't really that big of a deal. Sure, it would have been nice but the lack of it wasn't the reason for 9/11. Shit, in the first WTC bombing we had detained one of the bombers at the airport - with multiple passports and bombmaking manuals on him ... but released the guy on the spot. You really can't fix that sort of stupid.

415 I firmly believe that the only way to prevent the rolling coup by the Deep State, of which the intelligence agencies are the most active members, is to fire the entire top echelon in each department and agency.

That means not just one or two people under the Secretary, it has to be at least twenty. If you have to pay them to get rid of them then do so.

In a company takeover, and that in essence is what a transition of government from one president to another, you put in your own people. You may leave some from the old admin but if they prove untrustworthy out they go.

_________________________

Well, you have to understand that a significant majority of analysts at the CIA are recruited academic types. College professors are analyzing data en mass for the CIA...and they have very specific ideas how the US should be. From that pool of analysts you inevitably have promoted bureaucrats. Essentially, the CIA was just another indoctrination target after higher education.

Didn't you ever wonder how the analysts of the intelligence agencies could get so many things wrong in the recent past. It's because the fuck-ups of education are doing the evaluation. I guarantee you there are some actually, dyed in the wool socialists working there now. Maybe, quite a few.

549 When I was young and stupid (I'm old now, still stupid) I got the bright idea of repairing a leaking power steering line on a tractor. It was a steel line and developed a long little crack down the line and leaked like a bitch.

So, I fitted a little copper sleeve over it made out of a piece of pipe and soldered it. I filled the sleeve up with solder.

Now, pressure on that line gets in the 1000psi range. It didn't leak at first, but started to seep and then the steering wheel sort of got hard to turn.

Under that pressure, the solder just flowed into the line and filled up the power steering control valve with solder. It wasn't temperature. It was pressure. It flowed like plastic.

I had to take the damn thing apart and clean little balls of solder out. Luckily it didn't get sucked back to the pump. I think the filter would've stopped it.

That is young and stupid for ya.

557 Charlie HATES Trump. He was obnoxious as hell on any FBN program they had during primaries, RNC convention, etc. He got so bad one night, Cavuto basically had to tell him to shut the hell up.

558 Old plumbing solder was mostly lead, old electronic solder about half.

They went all paranoid about lead in plumbing solder a while back, despite the fact that the lead mostly leaches out fairly quickly. There will be traces, but it's not like eating paint chips.

In electronics it's mostly the recycling/RoHS thing.

The really funny (though not surprising) part is that the lead-free solder is more toxic!

Yeah not to mention that a lot of the old houses still have lead water pipes, and some of the older towns had/have lead water mains, but yeah that little loop of solder on a copper pipe joint is a world ender.

563 Gun thread!

I finally broke down and got a Glock 19 MOS and an RMR. I knew my astigmatisms would keep the dot from appearing clear but I think I can work with it.

Between RMR's and the great new weapons lights like the XC-1, we're really in a golden age of concealed carry options.

568 Orson is absolutely right. Wife went to academic summer program held in Midwest University with CIA hires at least half of the students attending. Had another one in my graduate program who became a CIA analyst.

Contrary to popular legends such as Jack Ryan, etc., most CIA analysts write and edit reports all day. Not a whole lot of difference between their job and journalists so it appeals to a certain sort of person.

A lot of their stuff is mundane crap that you could get perusing open source news in various countries and relatively low grade information gathered through various sources including foreign intelligence service reports. You could and do often get better information from the economist or on wall street regarding foreign information.

The actual covert operatives are relatively few in number and quite different animals (had one of them in one of my classes a few years back). The real deal including a guy that was a pal of my dad who was deputy director of U.S. military intelligence don't talk much shop to strangers.

I generally find out about those in govt service when I get called for security checks on former students--the more rigorous the questioning, the more important I assume that their position is.

NSA is a very different animal that I know little about other than knowing what was done in WWII and some of the Cold War stuff captured in the book, Puzzle Palace. You get a glimpse too through Snowden's leaks and Glen Greenwald.

The chilling thing is that the Soviets during their heyday probably collected as much information but their problem was being able to actually assess and analyze it in a timely fashion. Computers help that a whole lot especially on the bleeding edge. Computerizing society and digitalizing things like cell phones etc. makes it much easier to compile dossiers without human intervention. Then you can call it up via google like searches with just a name-like Mike Flynn.

BTW, if you want a pretty good overview of disinformation campaigns, read Brown's Bodyguard of Lies. The British were specialists and they passed that knowledge right on down to the nascent CIA. Same way they passed to torch to the Army Signals Agency in the aftermath of WWII on codebreaking/analysis.

571 So.... I'm new to this conservative field, having spent much of my (young) life an ambivalent liberal, so please be kind because I'm asking this in earnest... isn't sharing information across intelligence agencies a GOOD thing? I thought that was the reason 9/11 was able to happen- agencies couldn't share info and because of that the hijackers didn't get identified by relevant authorities who could have stopped them. So isn't it good that info can be shared more easily?

Posted by: Idared at February 16, 2017 05:49 PM (AKVjr)

572 Of course if Trump wanted to he could info it immediately
Think that will happen ?

Posted by: Him at February 16, 2017 08:11 PM (4ke74)

573 sharing raw data like the fact that we are recording a bunch of Trump's inside guys when we were recording all the Russians in our country. Does not matter that nothing was their. Of course, leaking the recordings (they are Classified) is a felony, but partisans do not care. this is coup de tata
