I did such a good job investigating the cyber-industrial complex, they’re sending me to investigate the prison-industrial complex. Another investigative journalist jailed.

The list of investigative journalists and whistle blowers being sentenced to prison just keeps growing and growing.  Barrett Brown was just sentenced to 5 years in prison for leaking information about hacked private intelligence firms.


In his statement after the sentence, Brown kept his humor about him saying, “Good News! The U.S. government decided today that because I did such a good job investigating the cyber-industrial complex, they’re now going to send me to investigate the prison-industrial complex.” –

    Former CIA case officer, Jeffrey Sterling also jailed.

    Today’s delve into the world of nuclear secrets begins with a short discussion of the “trial that never happened,” or as some are aware, the trial of a CIA officer going on in Virginia today. “If a trial isn’t reported, does jail time for a phony crime inconvenience one quite as much?”

    From Politico:

    Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice made a highly unusual public appearance Thursday — taking the witness stand for the prosecution in a criminal case against a former CIA officer on trial for leaking details of a top-secret spy program.

    Former CIA case officer, Jeffrey Sterling, a man who knew of America’s bizarre plot to give Iran phony nuclear secrets, is facing prison for blowing the whistle on just another fiasco, one of so many.

    “Operation Merlin” as the CIA called it, and yes, I have no idea where they make up names like this but we can all guess (John LeCarre novels). It is a felony to give away nuclear secrets and the CIA was well aware that their altered nuclear information, much like the things VT publishes all the time, shouldn’t be given to Iran. However, VT will actually tell you why, in effect, going well beyond the information that will never be able to come out at the trial on the basis of national security.

    Come to think about it, if we put it all in public domain, there is no reason for a trial in the first place or, worse still, the secrets we will be telling in the paragraphs below, now they are published, can be used in the trial. I do so love it when a plan comes together.

    I do so love the absurdity of this. OK, here goes:

    This is an old story. A fire set is the electronic triggering circuit for a multi-point implosion system used in nuclear weapons. This one, the one given Iran through Russia was supposed to be a Russian design. Very crude as compared to ours. Basically a copy of the fat man implosion triggering circuit from WW2. The timing circuits were modified so if use the weapon would only fizzle at best. This was intended to slow down the Iranian weapons design program by generating a fizzle yield. They would then have to figure out why it fizzled. That takes time.

    The only problem is that the Iranians were already set on using a 2 point weapons design that they got from Russia, Pakistan, China etc. So
    it was a worthless counter intel project that blew back into there faces. Basically a bunch of really stupid guys at the CIA came up with this idea. Now they are being busted for trying to covertly aid Iran with the illegal transfer of nuclear weapons design technology. This means that the bait contained other more useful nuclear design information than just the modified triggering circuit data. The real question is who approved the operation and how high did it go. IE normal WDC politics.

    So the CIA and Justice Department are putting Sterling on trial for making public a relatively innocent story that if properly investigated as the crime it is, and thanking Sterling for his work on behalf of national security, a trail will lead to a world class pack of bunglers that “threw the baby away with the bath water.”

    If they, be “they” the CIA or Iran or whoever, had simply come to us, we could have given them the number of someone who might have been able to “fix them up.” After all, one of the several hundred used but fully serviceable nukes America accidentally exported labeled “frozen beef carcasses” could have been rerouted.

    The mass media have suddenly discovered Jeffrey Sterling — after his conviction Monday afternoon as a CIA whistleblower.

    Sterling’s indictment four years ago received fleeting news coverage that recited the government’s charges. From the outset, the Justice Department portrayed him as bitter and vengeful — with the classic trash-the-whistleblower word “disgruntled” thrown in — all of which the mainline media dutifully recounted without any other perspective.

    Year after year, Sterling’s case dragged through appellate courts, tangled up with the honorable refusal of journalist James Risen to in any way identify sources for his 2006 book State of War. While news stories or pundits occasionally turned their lens on Risen, they scarcely mentioned Sterling, whose life had been turned upside down — by his firing from the CIA early in the Bush administration after filing a racial discrimination lawsuit, and much later by the 10-count indictment that included seven counts under the Espionage Act.

    Sterling was one of the very few African-American case officers in the CIA. He became a whistleblower by virtue of going through channels to the Senate Intelligence Committee in 2003 to inform staffers about the CIA’s ill-conceived, poorly executed and dangerous Operation Merlin, which had given a flawed design for a nuclear weapons component to Iran back in 2000.

    The principle of supporting whistleblowers as strongly as journalists is crucial. Yet support for the principle is hit-and-miss among individuals and organizations that should be clear and forthright. This need is especially great when the government is invoking “national security” claims.

    As the whistleblower advocate Jesselyn Radack of the Government Accountability Project has said:

    When journalists become targets, they have a community and a lobby of powerful advocates to go to for support. Whistleblowers are in the wilderness. … They’re indicted under the most serious charge you can level against an American: being an enemy of the state.

    Press freedom in Britain has been “sacrificed”

    Tom Crook (TC) : Britain’s rights to basic freedom of expression, which writers, journalists and free-speech activists fought for over centuries have been sacrificed and abandoned in the space of a few short disastrous years.

    Free speech and the freedom of the press to do its job without fear or favour is one of the most important pillars of a true democracy. But this is in greater danger of being sacrificed than at any time in living memory.

    O’bomba has imprisoned more whistleblowers than all other Presidents, combined.
    His handlers are panicking.

    And then there is a new story in the newspaper formerly known as the Daily Telegraph which is now the Daily Talmud with all its propaganda and support for Nazionists:


    Israel has passed a law that says Israel is for jews only. That is racist.
    Most of the so-called ‘jews’ in power are Ashkenazi. John Hopkins University research shows that they are Khazar, with no DNA link or right to Israel.

    Bluntly, that warring tribe of Khazars and Ashkenazi are lying and stealing with impunity, and the Vicar is right to question their involvement in 9/11.

    Je suis Charlie say the main scream presstitutes, mostly owned by the ‘jews who are not jews’, and press on with their looting and lies under the censorship of ‘anti-semite’ while they themselves are not semite.

  8. cynthia says:

    It is obvious that any person who questions Israel will be subject to hateful censorship or loss of life.
    That is blackmail, something the Zionists excel at under their Rothschild money men since the founding of Israel whose ‘leaders’ like Menachem Begin boasted that they were the world’s first terrorist state.
    True. They were in their birth, and continue to be so: a terrorist state.

  9. cynthia says:

    In my opinion, most Ashkenazi are so very ignorant of their background and Zionism that they would bow down to anything that lets them be sheeple; consumers, not makers; takers, not givers.
    They deserve what is coming to them, and that is why they ramp up more ‘anti-semite’ slander against anyone who questions Israhell’s genocide.

  10. cynthia says:

    It is disgusting that the main scream media is mostly owned now by Nazionists, and they jail truth seeking journalists who do nothing wrong, but question officialdom; seek facts, not propaganda.
    This young man Barrett Brown has committed the sin of being a goy, a journalist, defending everything any good journalist would do; anything that gave refuge to the hateful AshkeNAZI who now poison the world when once we gave them protection.
    They had better start disassociating themselves individually from such hate.
    They can hang together or hang apart.
    At this point, I don’t care which they choose.

    “I want to reassure everyone that we are taking this complaint extremely seriously,” he said.

    Are ‘you’ serious?

    Looks like Sizer’s come out (inadvertently? – God touched him…??). Pays going to those dodgy iran-overseas conferences. Sizer is a foremost Evangelical. This ‘slip’ is a testing of the ground. A word from God? A question: as he said.

    Well done man, Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit (Acts 7)

    Peace to you


  12. Mark says:


    Whilst the previous post stands I recognise Stephen has had to – chose to – compromise. And whilst it would be easy to criticise, in history, this man did it. He is the first prominent evangelical, regardless of what he says now in a statement, to voice the truth.

    Thank you Aangirfan and Tap


  13. Who is behind the censorship of Professor Nalin de Silva coming from the new government in Sri Lanka?

    Journalists say that President Rajapakse’s defeat was orchestrated through a foreign conspiracy.

    It is the nazionist banks and their control against the rest.

    The link from ‘Stand Against Global Terrorism’ gets the message:
    ‘cannot connect to server’.

    How much more blatant does it get that anything which challenges the nazionist money power is delayed, frustrated, down played.

    Or forced to apologise, as per the Vicar who merely asked a sensible question about the evidence which links to Israel and 9/ll, posing questions about Israel’s motives, methods and aims for its sugar daddy on which it depends: Rothschild in the City of London, the world’s richest bank and its friends who believe:
    By deception, make war (Mossad), their motto…for money and control, the only two things that matter to them.

  16. Cynthia says:

    I will not now nor ever accept the nonsense of ‘christian zionism’, a ridiculous concept, for the banks, by the banks, of the banks; the Pharisee.

    Throw the money lenders out of the Temple, as Jesus did.

    Not now. Not ever.

    It makes no difference to me that the Vicar attacked by the Nazionists has been forced to make an apology in order to save his life.
    God bless him
    We see
    We know

  17. Cynthia says:

    FIVE YEARS in jail for a journalist. Think of what that means.

    Einstein opposed Zionism.
    Any intellect or journalist would oppose fascism, by whatever name it call itself.

    In other words to put it plainly:
    ‘there ain’t no room for the hopeless sinner who would hurt all mankind, just to save his own’. (Curtis Mayfield)
    For all good people, this:


    For all good people, a change is coming.
    Embrace it.
    Hard times come.

    Don’t move the mountain. Give me strength to climb, sang sister Mahalia Jackson.

    Lord, have mercy. I believe. You said the way would not be easy. Lord helps those who help themselves. You said, and I believe.
