Well, it seems as if the CIA and FBI have finally decided to ditch the MSM’s narrative of ‘Russians hacked and leaked,’ and are now admitting (by launch of a “insider” manhunt) that perhaps WikiLeaks had it right all along. A traitor on the inside was the real hack and leak!
“CBS News has learned that a manhunt is underway for a traitor inside the Central Intelligence Agency.
The CIA and FBI are conducting a joint investigation into one of the worst security breaches in CIA history, which exposed thousands of top-secret documents that described CIA tools used to penetrate smartphones, smart televisions and computer systems.
Sources familiar with the investigation say it is looking for an insider — either a CIA employee or contractor — who had physical access to the material. The agency has not said publicly when the material was taken or how it was stolen.
Much of the material was classified and stored in a highly secure section of the intelligence agency, but sources say hundreds of people would have had access to the material. Investigators are going through those names.”
What’s really sad (and consistent) here is that WikiLeaks has admitted on more than one occasion that the leaks it received were from insiders and NOT Russian hackers, yet seemingly no one would acknowledge this prior to now because it didn’t fit the narrative.
“WikiLeaks has said it obtained the CIA information from former contractors who worked for U.S. intelligence. The CIA has not commented on the authenticity of the WikiLeaks disclosures or on the status of the investigation.”
Considering the reputation WikiLeaks has built over the course of the last decade, earning the public’s trust and establishing strong credibility with the information it releases about our governments, why would anyone ignore what it has to say? Furthermore, why would anyone doubt it?
