The Washington Post’s Drew Harwell reports far more information was taken in the hack of a Customs and Border Protection contractor than U.S. officials have acknowledged, including files that offer extensive detail on — and, in some cases, a literal road map to — equipment that has been installed at U.S. military bases and the United States’ most highly trafficked border gateways.

CBP officials have downplayed the significance of the material taken in the hack, saying only that fewer than 100,000 photos of travelers had been compromised and that none of those had been posted to the “dark Web,” the corner of the Internet where stolen documents are often traded and displayed.

That assessment, however, woefully understates the number of sensitive documents that are now freely available on the Web — so much material, totaling hundreds of gigabytes, that The Washington Post required several days of computer time to capture it all. The hoard of hacked document includes detailed schematics, confidential agreements, equipment lists, budget spreadsheets, internal photos, and hardware blueprints for security systems.

  1. The Border scam was another part of the 1965 Jew induced Heinz 57 Open Immigration/Refugee package , along with DEAs/CIA drug trafficking cover . It’s easy to cry – about drugs coming into the country when you show the public that the border is a non-stop flow of – Illegal Immigrants/Refugees. Did any Americans get thrown in prison with El Chapo’s trial. No , because the judge wouldn’t allow his defense to speak about the ” Americano side. Those that did – got 100% immunity – obviously. VT and others have laid out the entire History of events that have been hidden, fabricated, lied about – in the past. The discovery of all this deceitful , evil scheming should make the average person’s – blood boil- to the point of wanting revenge – but the Cabal owns hundreds of thousands of shills- and the propaganda machines.
