DeClassified Docs from The CIA: Part 1 (PsyOps)

The following are a list of guides taken from declassified files from the Central Intelligence Agency and US Army. For the purposes of this article, I would like to include internal documents and subject matter discussing the use of so-called Psych-Operations “Psy-Ops” out in the field, as well as a review of the psychology of Intelligence gathering itself; how such work either effects the people and/or the workers performing their duties for the Government, or the state of mind they need to be in to do it. Needless to say, the documents are incredibly interesting, and paint an interesting portrayal of this particular field.

This is also not the first time I’ve covered this general topic for this website, as I have also previously touched on the notions of “Psychological Warfare.” So, for the purposes of this article, I will be linking to those tags and will also be including Chelsae Manning’s original leak, the US Army Field Manual of Unconventional Warfare. Credit to “Neptunex3c” for providing the manuals to Rogue Media.

Wikileaks Publishes Letter from US Justice Department Outlining Potentiality of Future Charges Under US Espionage Act

Earlier today, April 26th 2019, for the first time, Wikileaks published a letter sent to Daniel Domscheit-Berg, a Wikileaks spokesperson, from the US Department of Justice, outlining the US’s possible intent to charge Julian Assange under the US Espionage Act in the future. Dated March 7th 2019, the letter is significant for a number of reasons. First and foremost because it’s the first look any of us have gotten into the case the US Government will be attempting to make against Julian Assange and second, because it shows the true extent to which journalists can be persecuted for their alleged “crimes” – at least here in the United States of America, that is.

As specified in the letter, the US Department of Justice may one day soon attempt to charge Assange with “unauthorized receipt and dissemination of classified information,” for which there are theoretical charges of either death or life in prison. However, international law prohibits the UK’s extradition of Assange if he faces the death penalty, which is why US prosecutors are adamant he would only face life in prison. However, as the letter even specifies, Assange may merely be charged with these crimes at some point in the future if he’s unwilling to cooperate with US authorities. This is because, at least for the time being, Asange hasn’t been charged with them – yet. For this very reason, essentially, letter can also be thought of as nothing more than a scare tactic of sorts – which is why Assange’s legal team was unafraid to release the letter to the public here today.

Subject: Daniel Domscheit-Berg

Dear attorney to Mr. Domscheit-Berg:

At the request of the United States, the German authorities have requested that your client be voluntarily questioned. This letter sets forth the terms under which your client would be heard about possible violations of United States federal criminal law regarding the unauthorized receipt and dissemination of classified information.

First, your client will answer all questions fully and truthfully and will provide all information, documents and records held or controlled by your client or to which your client has access and which are related to the subject of the interrogation.

Second, except as noted below, if the United States prosecutes your client, no statements or other information provided by you or your client during the course of the interrogation will be admissible in the government’s taking of evidence in court (case-in-chief) or in the imposition of penalties.

Third, the United States is permitted to reuse and pursue any investigative notices, statements or information that your client recommends or provides. Such derivative information may be used against your client at any time in the course of any criminal or civil proceedings. For example, if your client provides the information necessary to gain access to his electronic devices, this Agreement does not prohibit the disclosure of information obtained through a lawful search warrant on such devices.

Fourth, the United States may use such statements and information in cross-examination and rebuttal if your client appears as a witness at any stage of a civil or criminal proceeding and makes statements that differ from the statements or information provided by your client during the interrogation. In addition, the United States may use such statements and information to disprove further evidence offered or received or factual evaluations presented by or on behalf of your client that differ from the statements or information provided by your client during the interrogation.

Fifth, your client will be subject to prosecution for such violations, including, but not limited to, false testimony and obstruction of justice, if your client intentionally provides the government with false, misleading, or statements and information designed to obstruct justice. Any prosecution could be based on statements or information provided by your client during the interrogation, and the statements and information provided by your client during the interrogation could be used against your client.

Sixth, your client and the government agree that there will be no compromise negotiations or discussion of pleas at the interrogation session. However, should the hearing later be construed as a case of compromise or discussion of pleas, your client will wilfully and voluntarily waive any rights he may have under Federal Rules of Evidence 408 and 410 and Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 11(f) that would not otherwise permit the use against your client of statements made during such negotiations or discussions.

Seventh, neither you nor your client will disclose the existence or manner of this Agreement to anyone other than your client’s family, without prior consultation of the U.S. Attorney’s Office or a court of competent jurisdiction.

Finally, the offer (proffer) to your client will be made in accordance with the agreements set forth herein. There are no promises, agreements or understandings between the parties other than those set forth in this Agreement and no amendments to this Agreement shall be effective unless signed in writing by the parties with the same formalities as in this Agreement.

If your client wishes to be heard under the conditions set out above, you and your client sign this letter as indicated below and return the original to me.

Yours sincerely

Tracy Doherty-McCormick
Acting United States Attorney

Understanding The Mystery Surrounding Julian Assange’s Encrypted Torrent File

Over the course of the last few days I’ve been picking up on a lot of “chatter” surrounding a so-called “Deadman’s Switch” affiliated to Julian Assanges website and social platform. Before moving forward, for those of you whom do not know what this means, a deadman’s switch is a protection that hackers use to protect valuable information in the event of their deaths, arrests or disappearances. It works by encrypting a given set of data on a time switch. It’s simple really, if a code is not entered in before the time allotted expires, the encrypted data is automatically unlocked, decrypted and/or published online for the world to see. It is a sort of insurance that hackers employ to secure themselves and their persons.

To be honest, I first heard of this Thursday night – but essentially brushed it off as nothing more than nonsense. However, it wasn’t until last night that I came to understand Assange’s deadman’s switch is actually a real thing. If you need proof of this fact as I did, then go back and revisit a Wikileaks posting from June 3rd 2016 entitled “Protection for upcoming publications. TORRENT Wikileaks Insurance (88GB Encrypted).

Upon further investigation, it appears as though the torrent contains bits and pieces of information left out of previous leaks dating back to and including Chelsea Manning’s leaks from the US Army in 2010. Apparently, the now 88GB of data either contains information too sensitive to responsibly leak online, or compilations of random data that were never important enough to leak online in the first place – and theoretically everything in between. As no one but Assange knows for sure though, it’s anyones guess at this point – really.  However, considering that Assange has stated that he has seen information too dangerous for him to leak online in the past, including information implicating the Kremlin, I would be willing to bet the information contained within the torrent file is much more dangerous to the world than not. Consequentially, this would also explain why Assange has been holding the file over everyone’s head as insurance for so long.

With that established, no one knows for sure when the deadman’s switch will finally flip – but some are speculating that the decryption key could be posted online any day/minute now. For the time being, if you would like to own the encrypted data so that it may be unlocked whenever the time is necessary, you are invited to download the file below. Enjoy!
