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”

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:

Call to Action: Demand that President Obama Veto H.R. 658 And Scrub The DHS Wide Area Aerial Surveillance System (WAASS) It Enables

HR658 DHS WAASS Surveillance Drones: 1984 Meets Terminator

DEMAND THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA VETO H.R. 658 AND SCRUB THE DHS WIDE AREA AERIAL SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM (WAASS) IT ENABLES

Known to the clueless as the “FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012”, but recognized by the concerned as the “Skynet Surveillance Enabling Act of 2012”, H.R. 658 is now hovering at the White House just one corporate fascist puppet presidential signature away from authorizing the filling of America’s skies with as many as 30,000 “1984 Meets Terminator” Big Brother Police State citizen surveillance drones:

We are calling on all Americans to click the “Submit a comment” link for H.R. 658 on this White House Pending Legislation page and demand that President Obama veto H.R. 658 and scrub the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Wide Area Aerial Surveillance System (WAASS) it enables:

http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/pending-legislation

As Breach of Oath carries no penalty for our elected officials in Washington, they are understandably more accountable to the global corporate fascist elite and Citizens United Super PACs who fund their campaigns than they are to the people who elect them. Consequently, as with NDAA 2012 Obama will most likely sign the bill regardless of whatever protests are raised. But at least we will have yet another documented instance of his collusion with Congress in the ongoing criminal Seditious Conspiracy that is transforming the American Republic into the Amerikan Reich at an ever-accelerating pace.

NO MORE LEFT. NO MORE RIGHT. TIME TO UNITE. STAND AND FIGHT!

Make Way For WAASS: H.R.658 Accelerates Drone Deployment For Surveillance Of American Citizens

HR658 WAASS Skynet Surveillance Drones

MAKE WAY FOR WAASS: H.R.658 ACCELERATES DRONE DEPLOYMENT FOR SURVEILLANCE OF AMERICAN CITIZENS

Perhaps emboldened by the impotence of the ACLU, BORDC, Center for Constitutional Rights, “Oath Keepers” and other toothless rights watchdogs, as well as the inability of the Occupy Movement to break through the corporate-controlled mainstream media blackout of efforts to “Undo NDAA”, yesterday H.R.658 – euphemistically entitled the “FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act” – sailed through the U.S. Senate (75-20-5) and is now headed to the White House where our corporate fascist puppet President Barack Obama is expected to swiftly sign it into law:

http://tinyurl.com/77lsh3p

As were Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 – which despite Obama’s signing statement and other claims to the contrary do in fact codify the indefinite detention without charge or trial of American citizens on American soil – tucked neatly away in H.R.658 (and likely never read by most of our lobbified legislators) is Section 320, officially summarized as follows:

“Requires the FAA Administrator to: (1) develop plans to accelerate the integration of unmanned aerial systems [drones] into the National Airspace System, and (2) report to Congress on progress made in establishing special use airspace for the DOD to develop detection techniques for small unmanned aerial vehicles and to validate sensor integration and operation of unmanned aerial systems. Directs the DOD Secretary to establish a process to develop certification and flight standards for military unmanned aerial systems at specified test sites.”

With that exposed, a more fitting moniker for H.R.658 might be the “Skynet Surveillance Enabling Act of 2012”. According to USA Today, “Drones, perhaps best known for their combat missions in Afghanistan, are increasingly looking to share room in U.S. skies with passenger planes… Now, organizations from police forces searching for missing persons to academic researchers counting seals on the polar ice cap [are] eager to launch drones.” In more specific and less candy-coated terms, once the Wide Area Aerial Surveillance System – or WAASS (think Skynet) – drone surveillance network enabled by H.R.658 is in place, privacy in real as well as virtual space will become a thing of the past as Big Brother will be able to spy on just about anyone doing just about anything just about anywhere in the United States or elsewhere. As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stated:

“The primary objective of WAASS is to provide persistent, long-term surveillance over urban and rural terrain at least the size of 16 km2. The surveillance system shall have an electro-optical capability for daylight missions but can have an infrared capability for day or night operations. The sensor shall integrate with an airborne platform for data gathering. The imagery data shall be displayed at a DHS operations center and have the capability for forensic analysis within 36 hours of the flight.”

And as we previously reported, “Skynet” citizen surveillance has already begun:
