Trapwire: Spying On YOU. Predicting YOUR Moves.

TrapWire: If You SEE Something SMASH Something!

Ignored by corporate media, Wikileaks has exposed a CIA-linked Orwellian thoughtcrime surveillance network that goes far beyond “suspicious activity reporting”.

)(

TRAPWIRE: SPYING ON YOU. PREDICTING YOUR MOVES.

“Hacked emails from the private intelligence firm Stratfor shed light on a global suspicious activity surveillance system called TrapWire that is reportedly in use in locations around the world from the London Stock Exchange to the White House. The emails [released by WikiLeaks] provide information on the extent and operations of a system designed to correlate suspicious activity reports and other evidence that may indicate [a potential crime or terrorist attack].”

https://publicintelligence.net/unravelling-trapwire/

A TrapWire white paper describes their offering as “a unique, predictive software system designed to detect patterns of pre-attack surveillance. As such, TrapWire represents the basis for a paradigm shift in the methodologies traditionally applied to securing critical infrastructure and personnel; a paradigm shift from the currently accepted and widely adopted philosophy of damage mitigation through increased physical security to a new and proactive approach of attack prevention through the identification and disruption of pre-attack planning and surveillance activities.”

http://www.cicc.org/pdf/TRAPWIRE_Whitepaper_generic.pdf

In other words, TrapWire is for all intents and purposes an Orwellian thoughtcrime detection system. As their website explains, “TrapWire detects, analyzes and alerts on suspicious events as they are collected over periods of time and across multiple locations. Through the systematic capture of these pre-attack indicators, terrorist or criminal surveillance and pre-attack planning operations can be identified… There are currently three different TrapWire systems available for public and private sector clients:

  • TW-CI (TrapWire Critical Infrastructure) focuses on the identification of pre-operational surveillance activities occurring around specific sites within the TrapWire Network
  • TW-CM (TrapWire Community Member) supports the online reporting of suspicious behavior by community members, such as the iWatch programs in Los Angeles and Washington DC, and See Something Say Something in Las Vegas and New York</li?
  • TW-LE (TrapWire Law Enforcement) provides the ability to gather, analyze and disseminate information about surveillance and logistical activities occurring across an entire geographic region, including information gathered via TW CI and TW CM deployments”

http://www.trapwire.com/trapwire.html

TrapWire Inc. is a subsidiary of Abraxas Corporation, which founder and CEO Richard Hollis Holms claims to be the “largest aggregate of analytical counter-terrorism capabilities outside of the U.S. Government.” A former (?) company man himself, Helms may be implying here that only the CIA has more CIA operatives on the payroll than he does. TrapWire is no exception, as former (?) CIA operatives on staff there include among others:

  • Robert Daniel Botsch, President
  • Michael Thomas Maness, Director of Business Development
  • Michael K. Chang, Director of Operations

TrapWire took down their Who We Are and Management web pages after the Wikileaks disclosures gave them apparently unwanted public attention, but here are some screenshots and supplementary information:

Speaking of being taken down, Wikileaks suffered a major DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack shortly after the TrapWire releases were posted. According to one observer:

‘Now we have something new a group called AntiLeaks has popped up and managed to drop a 10GB/s + DDoS attack on WikiLeaks, their affiliate sites and mirrors. This is something pretty spectacular when you think about it. The group claims to be a group of “young adults, citizens of the United States of America and are deeply concerned about the recent developments with Julian Assange and his attempt at asylum in Ecuador”, but their tactics and capabilities seems to indicate something more is going on here… Some of the emails leaked indicate that Trapwire has extended beyond its original scope of threat prediction and mitigation into more intrusive areas. This is the type of information that Stratfor, the US Government and of course Abraxas would not want to be public. Some of the data the system is collecting could actually be in violation of privacy laws (as well as potentially violating a few other surveillance laws). You can imagine that with the connection to Stratfor and the US Government Abraxas has there would be some high-level interest in keeping these emails from the public eye. Again this would seem to put the attacks outside the realm of “young adults” and more into the state or corporate sponsored arena.’

I agree. I think Ben Doernberg would as well:

TrapWire and/or “unknown parties” may have taken down Wikileaks in reaction to Julian Assange’s fearless and peerless team shedding the light of Truth on their dark activities, but sadly what they DIDN’T take down is the “TrapWire ThoughtCrime Detection Network” itself. If you work for one of fascist Amerika’s 16 national security bureaucracies or their myriad “intelligence contractors”, or if you’re one of the thousands of LEOs and collaborators participating in the DHS National Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI) – or “Nasi” for short – you’re probably logging in right now:

Amerika: Neither Land of the Free Nor Home of the Brave

Amerika: Neither Land of the Free Nor Home of the Brave

If you are charged with a crime in Amerika, you are guilty unless you are rich. If you are struck by a drone from Amerika, you are guilty unless you survive.

 

AMERIKA: NEITHER LAND OF THE FREE NOR HOME OF THE BRAVE

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”–Goethe

As things stand, when corporate fascist puppet president Bushbamney signs NDAA 2013 (H.R. 4310, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013), bipartisan-sponsored Amendment 114 (based on H.R. 5736) will make it legal for the U.S. government to use Nazi Germany Goebbels-style “Big Lie” propaganda on its own citizens. And no doubt one of the biggest lies our ruling elite’s Demopublican operatives will continue selling us is that America is “the land of the free and the home of the brave”. That may have been somewhat accurate at some point in in our checkered past, but it’s certainly not true in today’s post-NDAA 2012 (Public Law 112-81) Fourth Reich “Amerika”.

 

LAND OF THE FREE?

How can Amerika be the land of the free when we have more laws on the books – and more people in prison for allegedly breaking them – than any other nation in the world?

Doubt that? Read this:

“So which country has the most laws regulating its citizenry? After looking high and low I discovered that the country with the most laws – not just today, but in all of history is… the United States. We not only have the most laws in all of history, but we also turn out more new laws and regulations to manage our people every single year than most countries turn out in decades.

http://tinyurl.com/7xp4l6f

“These new laws have come with an infusion of money into an expanded security system on the state and federal levels, including more public surveillance cameras, tens of thousands of security personnel and a massive expansion of a terrorist-chasing bureaucracy.”

http://tinyurl.com/88sq98d

“Half of the world’s prison population of about nine million is held in the US, China or Russia. Prison rates in the US are the world’s highest, at 724 people per 100,000.”


http://tinyurl.com/zkw7v

“Incarceration in the United States is one of the main forms of punishment and/or rehabilitation for the commission of felony and other offenses. The United States has the highest documented incarceration rate in the world. At year-end 2009 it was 743 adults incarcerated per 100,000 population. According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) 2,266,800 adults were incarcerated in U.S. federal and state prisons, and county jails at year-end 2010 – about 0.7% of adults in the U.S. resident population. Additionally, 4,933,667 adults at year-end 2009 were on probation or on parole.”


http://tinyurl.com/6m7dr6

 

HOME OF THE BRAVE?

How can Amerika be the home of the brave when our cowardly and illegal drone attacks are killing thousands of innocent civilians – many falsely counted as “combatants”, “militants” or “terrorists” – while at the same time more of our troops commit suicide every year than get killed in action?

Doubt that? Read this:

“Drones raise questions about the growing disconnect between the American public and its wars. Military ethicists concede that drones can turn war into a video game and, with no Americans directly at risk, more easily draw the United States into conflicts… The number of civilian deaths caused by drone strikes is unclear, and hotly contested. A report in February 2012 by the London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism said that drone strikes on suspected militants in Pakistan have repeatedly targeted rescuers who responded to the scene of a strike, as well as mourners at subsequent funerals.”

http://tinyurl.com/kqtjwl

In Pakistan (an American “ally”) alone, through mid-August last year as many as 2,956 people were killed and another 1,158 injured by U.S. drone attacks. Many were labelled “militants”, but the death toll includes at least 175 children and as many as 781 verified civilians. Despite all this collateral damage, no more than 150 “named militants” were killed. And again, these statistics are for Pakistan alone. How many more innocent children, women and men have Bushbamney’s immoral drone strikes murdered in Afghanistan, the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere?

http://tinyurl.com/3es3tez

“Mr. Obama embraced a disputed method for counting civilian casualties that did little to box him in. It in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants, according to several administration officials, unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.”


http://tinyurl.com/6mpvawo

“From 2005 to 2010, [U.S.] service members took their own lives at a rate of approximately one every 36 hours. While suicides in the Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard have been relatively stable and lower than those of the ground forces, U.S. Army suicides have climbed steadily since 2004. The Army reported a record-high number of suicides in July 2011 with the deaths of 33 active and reserve component service members reported as suicides. Suicides in the Marine Corps increased steadily from 2006 to 2009, dipping slightly in 2010. It is impossible, given the paucity of current data, to determine the suicide rate among veterans with any accuracy. However, the VA estimates that a veteran dies by suicide every 80 minutes. Moreover, although only 1 percent of Americans have served in the military, former service members represent 20 percent of suicides in the United States.”

http://tinyurl.com/3stynxb

“For the second year (2010) in a row, more US soldiers killed themselves (468) than died in combat (462). ‘If you… know the one thing that causes people to commit suicide, please let us know,’ General Peter Chiarelli told the Army Times, ‘because we don’t know.’ Suicide is a tragic but predictable human reaction to being asked to kill – and watch your friends be killed – particularly when it’s for a war based on lies.”

NDAA 2012 Codified Indefinite Detention. Now NDAA 2013 Legalizes Domestic Propaganda.

NDAA 2013

America’s two-party tyranny has authorized endless wars, warrantless surveillance, homeland drones and indefinite detention. Now they’re legalizing the Big Lie.

NDAA 2012 CODIFIED INDEFINITE DETENTION. NOW NDAA 2013 LEGALIZES DOMESTIC PROPAGANDA.

What the Democrats and Republicans agree on is far more damaging and dangerous than the wedge issues on which they supposedly don’t. We saw that last year with the enactment of Public Law 112-81, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA 2012), which had bipartisan sponsorship and sailed through both House and Senate with overwhelming bipartisan majority support. Now acceleratedly close on its heels comes H.R. 4310, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (NDAA 2013), which glided through the House with broad bipartisan support on May 18 and is now in the hands of the Senate:

http://tinyurl.com/6rt9xzt

Attached to that bill is a bipartisan-sponsored amendment summarized as follows:

“Amendment No. 114 – Reps. Thornberry (R-TX) and Smith (D-WA): The amendment would amend the United States Information and Educational Exchange Act of 1948 (known as the Smith-Mundt Act) and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1986 and 1987 to clarify the authorities of the Department of State and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to prepare, disseminate and use public diplomacy information [propaganda] abroad and to strike the current ban on domestic dissemination of such material. The amendment would clarify that the Smith-Mundt Act’s provisions related to public diplomacy information [propaganda] do not apply to other federal departments or agencies (including the DoD).”


http://tinyurl.com/6ndk8lr

The full text of the amendment is assumed to be H.R. 5736, euphemistically labelled the “Smith Mundt Modernization Act of 2013”. You can read that here:

http://tinyurl.com/7k98kqs

http://tinyurl.com/7eqx3fl

This amendment legalizes what many think the government has been doing for years anyway: using false propaganda to influence the decisions and control the minds of its own citizens. According to Buzzfeed:

“The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts – the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987 – that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government’s misinformation campaigns… The new law would give sweeping powers to the government to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public. ‘It removes the protection for Americans,’ says a Pentagon official who is concerned about the law. ‘It removes oversight from the people who want to put out this information. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false…’ Critics of the bill point out that there was rigorous debate when Smith Mundt passed, and the fact that this is so ‘under the radar,’ as the Pentagon official puts it, is troubling… The evaporation of Smith-Mundt and other provisions to safeguard U.S. citizens against government propaganda campaigns is part of a larger trend within the diplomatic and military establishment… In December, the Pentagon used software to monitor the Twitter debate over Bradley Manning’s pre-trial hearing; another program being developed by the Pentagon would design software to create ‘sock puppets’ on social media outlets [such as Facebook, Twitter and online forums]; and, last year, General William Caldwell, deployed an information operations team under his command that had been trained in psychological operations to influence visiting American politicians to Kabul.”

http://tinyurl.com/c78hhg9

DemandProgress.org asserts that “The NDAA amendment legalizing mass propaganda campaigns would remove all distinction between a hostile foreign audience and American one, turning the massive information operation apparatus within the federal government against its own people.” They offer yet another online petition/email campaign to oppose it, but many consider such initiatives to be impotent slacktivism:

http://tinyurl.com/7lq76h2

Our rapidly accelerating descent into Orwellian police-state fascism will not be stopped or even slowed by signing one online petition or one thousand. And it won’t be reversed at the ballot box, because voting either Democrat or Republican keeps the same corporate-controlled oligopoly in power, and voting any other way is at best an act of defiance:

http://tinyurl.com/7e57dqe

Our only solution is to take to the streets and quickly – before the drones overhead control our every move, and the droning of TVs and flickering of monitors our every thought.

World War Web Advisory #6: NSA Big Brother Utah Data Center To Achieve “Total Information Awareness” By September 2013

World War Web Advisory #6: NSA Big Brother Utah Data Center To Achieve "Total Information Awareness" By September 2013

While Americans focus on Kim, Kony, Clooney and the slave-produced iPad 3, the totalitarian takeover that assures their own subjugation draws near – and only 29 years later than Orwell predicted.

WORLD WAR WEB ADVISORY #6: NSA BIG BROTHER UTAH DATA CENTER TO ACHIEVE “TOTAL INFORMATION AWARENESS” BY SEPTEMBER 2013

Too bad more hacktivists don’t follow @VVVPR on Twitter. If they did, Anonymous might have seen this warning in time to mitigate the impact of their infiltration and betrayal by LulzSec’s Sabu a.k.a. FBI informant Hector Xavier Monsegur:

“How do we tell the true #Anonymous (good guys) from the #CIA #DHS #FBI #NSA etc false flaggers (#fascists)? 9:12 PM – 20 Feb 12”

https://twitter.com/#!/VVVPR/status/171779210036252672

They would also have been apprised of a nemesis on the horizon that – if allowed to grow unchecked – could leave the merry band of high-minded hackers with future prospects comparable to those of the Polish Cavalry in 1938:

“With new #NSA data center, #BigBrother will achieve “total information awareness” by September 2013: bit.ly/zkZcJl #Anonymous #OWS Retweeted by VVV PR 6:04 AM – 18 Mar 12″

https://twitter.com/#!/WatchFrogsBoil/status/181320113927094273

The NSA simply calls it their “Utah Data Center”:

“Under construction by contractors with top-secret clearances, the blandly named Utah Data Center [UDC] is being built for the National Security Agency. A project of immense secrecy, it is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade. Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world’s communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks. The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013. Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trail – parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital ‘pocket litter.’ It is, in some measure, the realization of the “total information awareness” program created during the first term of the Bush administration…”

http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2012/03/ff_nsadatacenter/all/1

The demise of Anonymous is not the sole purpose of the NSA UDC any more than the Occupy Movement was the sole target of HR 347, the bill corporate fascist puppet president Barack Obama recently signed into law (Public Law 112-98) that in certain key circumstances makes peaceful protest a felony. According to one of Wired.com’s unnamed NSA officials, “Everybody’s a target; everybody with communication is a target … not only governments around the world but also many average computer users in the US.”

Average American computer users, of course, are either clueless or could care less. They’re far too busy “talking about” Kim Kardashian’s Fakebook page … “liking” Kony 2012 – a credibility-challenged but viral YouTube video about the sad plight of some children from Uganda, a country most of them could not find on a map … “retweeting” kudos to actor George Clooney for his recent celebrity stand against injustice in Sudan – as if that was somehow more crucial than injustices in their own country like the Patriot Act, AUMF 2001, Citizens United, NDAA 2012, HR 658 and HR 347 … or queuing to buy the new Apple iPad 3, the latest in a long line of “iPlanned Obsolescence” products built by slave labor and bought by brainwashed zombies.

There’s not much to hope for in all this. But to close on a positive note, many of the Polish Cavalry’s charges into the invading Nazi lines were successful, and the fascists were defeated in the end.

In Post-NDAA Amerika, What is a Terrorist and Who Can Make You Disappear by Calling You One?

Suspected Terrorist

IN POST NDAA AMERIKA, WHAT IS A TERRORIST AND WHO CAN MAKE YOU DISAPPEAR BY CALLING YOU ONE?

Since corporate fascist puppet president Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 into law this past New Year’s Eve (NDAA: Public Law 112-81), the powers of indefinite detention claimed under the post-9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force Act (AUMF: Public Law 107-40) have been codified. Now the mere suspicion of being a “terrorist” is sufficient grounds for an American citizen – on American soil – to be arrested and detained indefinitely without charge or trial. Obvious questions of constitutionality aside, this should prompt at least the cautious to ask questions like the following:

1. What is the legal definition of “terrorist”?

2. Who can make you disappear by calling you one?

To answer the first question, we searched the online version of the United States Code – “the codification of the general and permanent laws of the United States” – for a definition of “terrorist”. And to our amazement, we didn’t find one. Over 400 references to “terrorist” in the USC, yes. But a specific definition, no. What we did find is this:

Title 8 Section 1182(a)(3)(B) defines “terrorist activity” but not “terrorist”:

(iii) “Terrorist activity” defined As used in this chapter, the term “terrorist activity” means any activity which is unlawful under the laws of the place where it is committed (or which, if it had been committed in the United States, would be unlawful under the laws of the United States or any State) and which involves any of the following: (I) The highjacking or sabotage of any conveyance (including an aircraft, vessel, or vehicle). (II) The seizing or detaining, and threatening to kill, injure, or continue to detain, another individual in order to compel a third person (including a governmental organization) to do or abstain from doing any act as an explicit or implicit condition for the release of the individual seized or detained. (III) A violent attack upon an internationally protected person (as defined in section 1116(b)(4) of title 18) or upon the liberty of such a person. (IV) An assassination. (V) The use of any – (a) biological agent, chemical agent, or nuclear weapon or device, or (b) explosive, firearm, or other weapon or dangerous device (other than for mere personal monetary gain), with intent to endanger, directly or indirectly, the safety of one or more individuals or to cause substantial damage to property. (VI) A threat, attempt, or conspiracy to do any of the foregoing. (iv) “Engage in terrorist activity” defined As used in this chapter, the term “engage in terrorist activity” means, in an individual capacity or as a member of an organization – (I) to commit or to incite to commit, under circumstances indicating an intention to cause death or serious bodily injury, a terrorist activity; (II) to prepare or plan a terrorist activity; (III) to gather information on potential targets for terrorist activity; (IV) to solicit funds or other things of value for – (aa) a terrorist activity; (bb) a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(I) or (vi)(II); or (cc) a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III), unless the solicitor can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that he did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization;

(V) to solicit any individual – (aa) to engage in conduct otherwise described in this subsection; (bb) for membership in a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(I) or (vi)(II); or (cc) for membership in a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III) unless the solicitor can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that he did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization; or

I’m no attorney and I don’t play one on television. But after reading the above, it seems to me that the short answer to the question “What is the legal definition of terrorist?” is “That depends.”

Now on to the second question: Who can make you disappear by calling you one?

According to the Washington Post’s TOP SECRET AMERICA project, there are “45 government organizations (for example, the FBI) engaged in top-secret work [that can] be broken down into 1,271 sub-units (for example, the Terrorist Screening Center of the FBI).” I’m pretty sure they can. But they also mention “4,058 government organizations involved in domestic counterterrorism and homeland security” including 2,880 federal organizations that work at the state level, such as the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs), plus 818 state and 360 local organizations. I’m pretty sure they can, too. And then of course there’s the “1,931 companies engaged in top-secret work for the government.” I’d wager some or all of them can, as well.

And that’s not all. We also have to consider the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative (NSI):

http://nsi.ncirc.gov/

Using NaSI SARs (Suspicious Activity Reports), just about anyone can drop the dime the makes you disappear: a hateful former spouse, a jealous or jilted lover, that co-worker you’re always competing with, or maybe just a nosey neighbor. All they have to do is fill out one of these forms and click “Submit”:
