Former NSA Officer – CIA Lying About Russians Hacking DNC




Former NSA Officer William Binney: CIA Lying About Russians Hacking DNC

… from  Sputnik News,  Moscow


[ Editor’s Note: The DNC hacking story has gone on way too long with weasel word accusations, especially given the capabilities the NSA has to watch over internet communications.

We do not have any old NSA people with VT, so we have been waiting for someone to pop out of the woodwork to explain why the “iffy” accusations seem “fishy” to those of us who are of the suspicious persuasion.

It is quite a trick to move large files, especially internationally, without leaving a bread crumb trail that a lot of people were paid a lot of money to construct; and those same people like to do key word searches via massive communications traffic with supercomputers.

Top tier foreign governments are not in the habit of incriminating themselves, but they would set up a go-between patsy possibly, with no connection to them whatsoever, if they had an interest to do such a thing, or… just hire someone inside the DNC to sell it to them — again through an intermediary.

We may never know how it was done, even after hearing what our own officials tell us, as they have their own ways of laying out a breadcrumb trail, which can have all kinds of interesting uses.

The safest way to have done this, of course, is just to have hired the Israelis to do it. They never get caught because, if they do, they have so much blackmail info on so many important people that a prosecution would be self-defeating. Israeli espionage does not go on here year after year with no prosecutions because our people are stupid, but because they can’t stop them.

No one has more access to US (and other) networks than the Israelis. In our country, we just let them in by doing things like letting them fast-track bidding on Homeland Security contracts, as Mr. Michael Chertoff did during his short stint in that position.

Remember him, the guy who was later the sales agent for the million dollar airport body scanners that ended up not working… and got away with it? As Gordon loves to say, “Welcome to how the world really worksJim W. Dean ]

Whistleblower William Binney, a former National Security Agency official, is speaking out against the Central Intelligence Agency’s claims that Russia hacked the Democratic Party.

Binney, a cryptanalyst-mathematician and a Russia specialist at one point during his 30 years with the NSA, is a signatory of an open letter released Monday from six retired intelligence officials, calling themselves the “Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity,” who assert that the allegations that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee (DNC) are baseless.

“The evidence that should be there is absent; otherwise, it would surely be brought forward, since this could be done without any danger to sources and methods,” the letter stated. “Thus, we conclude that the emails were leaked by an insider – as was the case with Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning. Such an insider could be anyone in a government department or agency with access to NSA databases, or perhaps someone within the DNC.”

In an in-depth interview on Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear, Binney details points clarifying that the WikiLeaks email releases are not hacks at all, but actually insider leaks.

“In order to get to the servers, they [hackers] would have to come across the network and go into the servers, penetrate them, and then extract data out of the servers and bring it back across the network,” Binney explained. “If it were the Russians, it would then go to Russia, and it would have to go from there across the network again to get to WikiLeaks.”

Binney explained that “anything doing that would be picked up by the NSA’s vast surveillance system, both in terms of collecting the data as it transits the fiber optics inside the US, as well as internationally.” The retired intelligence analyst also noted that traceroute packets are embedded in hundreds of switchers around the world, and that email messages are easily traced.

“With all the billions of dollars we spend on this collection access system that the NSA has, there’s no way that could have missed all the packets being transferred from those servers to the Russians,” Binney said. “I mean, they should know exactly how and when those packets left those servers and went to the Russians, and where specifically in Russia it went. There’s no excuse for not knowing that.”

If it was a hack, Binney reveals, the NSA would know who the sender and recipients of the data are, thanks to mass internet surveillance programs. The intelligence apparatus does not depend on “circumstantial evidence,” as has been reported.

“My point is really pretty simple. There should be no guessing here at all, they should be able to show the traceroutes of all the packets, or some of them anyways, going to the Russians and then from the Russians to WikiLeaks,”

Binney explained. “There is no excuse for not being able to do that — and that would be the basic evidence to prove it. Otherwise, it could be any hacker in the world, or any other government in the world, who knows.” Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern also signed the letter, and has been outspoken about his disbelief that the information came from a Russian hack — or that the breach was, indeed, a hack.

“Today they are talking about having ‘overwhelming circumstantial evidence.’ Now we have overwhelming technical evidence. We have the former technical director of the National Security Agency that tells us that this is really just drivel,” McGovern previously told Radio Sputnik. “This is really just an operation to blacken the Russians and to blame the defeat of Hillary Clinton on the Russians.”

On Monday, Sputnik reported that former CIA officer and current executive director of the Council for the National Interest, Philip Giraldi, has come to the same conclusion as Binney and McGovern. “

If the intelligence community is nevertheless claiming that they know enough to conclude that it was directed from the top levels of the Russian government, then they should be able to produce documentary or other evidence of officials’ ordering the operation to take place,” Giraldi wrote. “Do they have that kind of information? It is clear that they do not, in spite of their assertion of ‘high confidence,’ and there is a suggestion by Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, a persistent critic of Russian spying who is on the House Intelligence Committee, that the information they do have consists of innuendo and is largely circumstantial.”

  1. USA State department are allowed only so many designated preset enemies as the doctrine allows. US dedication to framing the designated enemy is immaculate. It is a true forte inherited from the old school English and Nazi black-ops. The truth is not of their concern, only the goal. Once the vampire’s teeth are stuck in the blood vessel it’s hard to pull out no matter what is going around. Let’s not forget an event like recent Eurosong competition which was massively hacked Florida style, the “accidental” photo-finish on the popular vote (musical jury asside) between Ukrainian and Russian song, first one about Tatars in Crimea and the other one about plain love (like 90% of all competitors), and this was the first year US and China were allowed to participate in folks voting. You can imagine who won by overwhelming “popular” vote and probably two-thirds or more of USA have never heard of Eurosong. RT had a nice analysis of the event, called RIP Eurosong.

  2. According to mainstream sources on Dnc/Podesta email hacks.
    The email account of Podesta was hacked by using phishing. An email was sent pretending to be Google to Podestas email account and message was that Podesta’s email account was hacked and he needed to change his password.
    Since Podesta has a staff handling his emails it was a staffer who clicked on the fake Google link and provided the hackers with Podesta’s password. Eventually that staffer is Milia Fisher which the inside man/woman could be, her because she ignored the real link and clicked on the fake Google link. She looks and her name points to be Jewish.

  3. iffy accusations smell even fishier with UK Labour Ben Bradshaw jumping onboard the sinking ship declaring that it was “highly probable” that Russia interfered in the Brexit vote… — “Not only their interference, now proven, in the American presidential campaign, [but] probably in our referendum last year. We don’t have the evidence for that yet…” …and not likely to

  4. Before the election, VT said that WikiLeaks got the DNC/Podesta emails from the Israelis, who got them from NSA (which provides raw intel data directly to the Israelis).

    Former NSA Officer William Binney is now confirming that a routing similar to this is the ONLY way that WikiLeaks could have received the DNC/Podesta emails — without NSA knowing about it.

    This certainly does NOT mean that Russians were not involved in election skewing, hacking & rigging (as VT alone also alleges). Binney & CIA are only discussing the DNC/Podesta email leaks — NOT direct hacking & rigging of voting & tabulating computers and related software (to which Binney’s assertions don’t apply). As per VT, this is where Russians also played a role — as junior partners to Bibi & Co.

  5. “No one has more access to US (and other) networks than the Israelis. In our country, we just let them in by doing things like letting them fast-track bidding on Homeland Security contracts, as Mr. Michael Chertoff did during his short stint in that position.”

    They want us all to believe that Russia is the actual enemy, when in fact the true enemy of the United States has been right upon our very nose for years.

    • Chertoff actually took a US team to Israel to put a seminar on for the Zio candidates on how to do the paperwork applications correctly and quickly. And if you were wondering if they were primarily interested in the communications and security contracts, you are correct. They always have been back to the Clinton days when they actually had the Whitehouse contract, and where Billy boy told Monica on the phone to be careful what she said. Little did he know they had him covered coming and going.

    • The Israelis have the art of persuasion and politics down to a tee. Hence the reason everyone in the US is teed-off and playing bad golf.

      Getting out of the rough at Foggy Bottom, figuratively at least, must be like firing a sand wedge into a desert mirage in the Negev. You would not get an IDF golfer to do that, but hey, she will be happy to clue you in on how to put your sand wedge aside and regale you on how to fire bunker busters all across the Levant at unlikely coordinates a fair ways off yet well marked by her embedded grounds keeper. Next she’ll broach the subject of last weeks threesome with her fair haired friends, throw you her golf-clubs to carry and ask irascibly: “Who is the caddie, pray, and who is the cad?”
