Cell Phone Stingrays

The release of a secret U.S. government catalog of cell phone surveillance devices has revealed the names and abilities of dozens of surveillance tools previously unknown to the public. The catalog shines a light on well-known devices like the Stingray and DRT box, as well as new names like Cellbrite, Yellowstone, Blackfin, Maximus, Stargrazer, and Cyberhawk.

The Intercept reports:

“Within the catalogue, the NSA is listed as the vendor of one device, while another was developed for use by the CIA, and another was developed for a special forces requirement. Nearly a third of the entries focus on equipment that seems to have never been described in public before.”

Anti Media has reported extensively on the Stingray, the brand name of a popular cell-site simulator manufactured by the Harris Corporation. The Electronic Frontier Foundation describes Stingrays as “a brand name of an IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) Catcher targeted and sold to law enforcement. A Stingray works by masquerading as a cell phone tower – to which your mobile phone sends signals to every 7 to 15 seconds whether you are on a call or not – and tricks your phone into connecting to it.”

As a result, whoever is in possession of the Stingray can figure out who, when, and to where you are calling, the precise location of every device within the range, and with some devices, even capture the content of your conversations.

Both the Harris Corp. and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) require police to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDA) related to the use of the devices. Through these NDAs local police departments have become subordinate to Harris, and even in court cases in front of a judge, are not allowed to speak on the details of their arrangements. Due to this secrecy, very little has been known about how exactly the Stingrays work.

The bit of publicly available information was disclosed through open records requests and lawsuits filed by journalists and researchers. This new catalog provides even more detail about how the devices operate.

We already knew that Stingrays drain the battery of a targeted device, as well as raise signal strength. We also knew that as long as your phone is on, it could be targeted. Some newer details include the fact that the Stingray I and II will not work if the user is “engaged in a call.” Also, the device can gather data from phones within a 200 meter radius. And the next generation Hailstorm device is even capable of cracking encryption on the newer 4G LTE networks.

A number of the devices in the catalog are Digital Receiver Technology (DRT) boxes, also known as dirt boxes, which can be installed in planes for aerial surveillance. DRT was recently purchased by Boeing. We first learned of dirt boxes in late 2014, when the Wall Street Journal revealed a cell phone monitoring program operated by the U.S. Marshals Service, using Cessna planes mounted with Stingrays. AntiMedia has also reported on surveillance planes equipped with thermal imaging technology.

Other devices include:

Cellbrite: “a portable, handheld, field proven forensic system for the quick extraction and analysis of 95% cell phones, smart phones and PDA devices,”capable of extracting “information such as phone book, pictures, video, text messages, and call logs.”

Kingfish: a Stingray-like device that is “portable enough to be carried around in a backpack.”

Stargrazer: “an Army system developed to deny, degrade and/or disrupt a targeted adversary’s command and control (C2) system,” which “can jam a handset and capture its metadata at the same time it pinpoints your target’s location. But watch out — the Stargazer may jam all the other phones in the area too — including your own.”

Cyberhawk: which is capable of gathering “phonebook, names, SMS, media files, text, deleted SMS, calendar items and notes” from 79 cell phones.

Jennifer Lynch, a senior staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, told the Intercept that the use of these tools is part of the militarization of the police in the U.S.: “We’ve seen a trend in the years since 9/11 to bring sophisticated surveillance technologies that were originally designed for military use — like Stingrays or drones or biometrics — back home to the United States.”

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the FBI, NSA, and U.S. military declined to leave a comment with the Intercept regarding the catalog. Marc Raimondi, a Justice Department spokesperson, told theIntercept that the Department “uses technology in a manner that is consistent with the requirements and protections of the Constitution, including the Fourth Amendment, and applicable statutory authorities.”

The Intercept notes that Raimondi worked for Harris Corp. for six years prior to working for the DOJ.

Secrecy surrounding the use of these devices has been a contentious topic of debate for several years. Truth In Media recently reported that four members of the House Oversight Committee sent letters to 24 federal agencies including the Department of State and the Securities and Exchange Commission, demanding answers regarding policies for using the controversial surveillance technology.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaf­fetz, ranking member Elijah Cummings, and Reps. Will Hurd (R-Texas) and Robin Kelly (D-Ill.), as members of the committee’s IT subcommittee, issued requests for information related to the potential use of stingrays.

Chaf­fetz also recently introduced the Stingray Privacy Act, which would expand newly established warrant requirements for the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security to all federal, state, and local agencies that use the cell-site simulators.

In September, the DHS joined the DOJ by announcing warrant requirements for the use of Stingray equipment, but those rule changes have come under fire for possible loopholes which may allow the continued use of surveillance equipment without a warrant.

“Because cell-site simulators can collect so much information from innocent people, a simple warrant for their use is not enough,” Jennifer Lynch told theIntercept. “Police officers should be required to limit their use of the device to a short and defined period of time. Officers also need to be clear in the probable cause affidavit supporting the warrant about the device’s capabilities.”

At this point, it’s painfully obvious that America is the home of the Police-Surveillance State. Awakened hearts and minds everywhere should continue to educate themselves and their communities about the dangers of these tools. We should also support initiatives to create technology that can defend against the prying eyes and ears of Big Brother. Privacy is a dying notion in a nation of fools determined to be safe rather than liberated.

Operation Mockingbird

So much of our news are just fabricated lies…

>> Video

Operation Mockingbird

The CIA currently maintains a network of several hundred foreign individuals around the world who provide intelligence for the CIA and at times attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda. These individuals provide the CIA with direct access to a large number of newspapers and periodicals, scores of press services and news agencies, radio and television stations, commercial book publishers, and other foreign media outlets.

Senator Frank Church argued that misinforming the world cost American taxpayers an estimated $265 million a year.

In 1948, Frank Wisner was appointed director of the Office of Special Projects (OSP). Soon afterwards OSP was renamed the Office of Policy Coordination (OPC). This became the espionage and counter-intelligence branch of the Central Intelligence Agency. Wisner was told to create an organization that concentrated on “propaganda, economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist elements in threatened countries of the free world.”

Later that year Wisner established Mockingbird, a program to influence the domestic and foreign media. Wisner recruited Philip Graham from The Washington Post to run the project within the industry. According to Deborah Davis in Katharine the Great; “By the early 1950s, Wisner ‘owned’ respected members of The New York Times, Newsweek, CBS and other communications vehicles.”

In 1951, Allen W. Dulles persuaded Cord Meyer to join the CIA. However, there is evidence that he was recruited several years earlier and had been spying on the liberal organizations he had been a member of in the later 1940s. According to Deborah Davis, Meyer became Mockingbird’s “principal operative.”

In 1977, Rolling Stone alleged that one of the most important journalists under the control of Operation Mockingbird was Joseph Alsop, whose articles appeared in over 300 different newspapers. Other journalists alleged by Rolling Stone Magazine to have been willing to promote the views of the CIA included Stewart Alsop (New York Herald Tribune), Ben Bradlee (Newsweek), James Reston (New York Times), Charles Douglas Jackson (Time Magazine), Walter Pincus (Washington Post), William C. Baggs (The Miami News), Herb Gold (The Miami News) and Charles Bartlett (Chattanooga Times). According to Nina Burleigh (A Very Private Woman), these journalists sometimes wrote articles that were commissioned by Frank Wisner. The CIA also provided them with classified information to help them with their work.

After 1953, the network was overseen by Allen W. Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. By this time Operation Mockingbird had a major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies. These organizations were run by people with well-known right-wing views such as William Paley (CBS), Henry Luce (Time and Life Magazine), Arthur Hays Sulzberger (New York Times), Alfred Friendly (managing editor of the Washington Post), Jerry O’Leary (Washington Star), Hal Hendrix (Miami News), Barry Bingham, Sr., (Louisville Courier-Journal), James Copley (Copley News Services) and Joseph Harrison (Christian Science Monitor).

The Office of Policy Coordination (OPC) was funded by siphoning of funds intended for the Marshall Plan. Some of this money was used to bribe journalists and publishers. Frank Wisner was constantly looking for ways to help convince the public of the dangers of communism. In 1954, Wisner arranged for the funding of the Hollywood production of Animal Farm, the animated allegory based on the book written by George Orwell.

According to Alex Constantine (Mockingbird: The Subversion Of The Free Press By The CIA), in the 1950s, “some 3,000 salaried and contract CIA employees were eventually engaged in propaganda efforts”. Wisner was also able to restrict newspapers from reporting about certain events.

OPERATION OPEN EYES By Walter Bowart

Intersting article about MK-Ultra experiments:

OPERATION OPEN EYES By Walter Bowart

April 1996

—————————————————————-

News for Freedom of Thought Foundation Members
Vol.2 No.4, Whole Issue Number 16, April, 1996

Dallas,  Texas  —  Best-selling  author  Richard Condon, whose
prophetic novel about mind control “The Manchurian  Candidate”
suddenly became frighteningly  realistic after  the CIA  MKULTRA
revelations were made public in the 1970’s, died  April 9th,. He
was 81.
Mr. Condon, who died of kidney failure, saw “The Manchurian
Candidate”, the darkly comic  “Prizzi’s Honor,”  and a  satire
about the JFK assassination, “Winter Kills,” made into  acclaimed
movies.
Many other novels by Mr. Condon had a strong satirical,  anti-
establishment  bent:  “The  Oldest  Confession,”  “Some  Angry
Angel,” “Emperor of America,”  “A Talent  for Loving,”  ‘and
“An Infinity of Mirrors.”
“Every  book  I’ve  ever  written  has  been  about abuse  of
power,” the Associated Press quoted him as saying. “‘I feel very
strongly about that. I’d  like people  to know  how de,ply  their
politicians are wronging them,”
A former film publicist who didn’t take up novel writing until
he  was  in  his  40s,  Mr.  Condon  published  “The  Manchurian
Candidate” in 1959. But the novel – about  an American  prisoner
of war in Korea who is brainwashed and programmed  to kill,  then
returns  to  the  United  States  and  assassinates  a   powerful
politician – didn’t become a big seller until after the 1962 film
version.
The  Associated  Press  report  said,”   When  Kennedy   was
assassinated in 1963 by a former Marine who had spent time in the
Soviet Union, the film was withdrawn for many years.”
Condon said that the film had been pulled from distribution by
Frank Sinatra, the star of the film, and a close personal friend
of John Kennedy’s.
The  rights to  the movie,  starring Laurence  Harvey as  the
brainwashed man, Angela Lansbury as his mother and Frank  Sinatra
as a fellow soldier who tries to thwart the plot, were bought  by
Sinatra. Later  the film  was released  in both  theaters and  on
video to new acclaim.
‘Winter  Kills,”  published  in 1974,  portrayed events  more
closely  resembling  the  Kennedy  assassination.   In  it,   the
half-brother of a slain president of Irish descent overhears  the
deathbed confession 14 years later of a  man who  claims to  have
been involved in the murder.
The book gave Mr. Condon  his biggest  critical success  since
“Candidate.”
“Prizzi’s Honor,”  in 1982,  was the  first in  a series  of
novels on the Mafia. It was  followed by  “Prizzi’s Family”  in
1986,  “Prizzi’s  Glory”  in  1988,  and  in  1993,  “Prizzi’s
Money,” about the outlaw family’s efforts to gain the summit  of
political respectability.
Angelica Huston, who grew up as a neighbor of Mr. Condon’s  in
Ireland, played the female  lead in   film  version of  “Prizzi’s
Honor” opposite Jack Nicholson.    Mr. Condon  also co-wrote  the
screenplay for the 1985 film  – about a hit man and his wife  who
are sent to kill each  other. The  screenplay earned   Condon  an
Oscar  nomination.
Before writing books, the New York City native pitched  films.
Hired as a press agent for Walt Disney Productions  in 1937,  Mr.
Condon  worked  in the  movie business  for more  than 20  years,
putting in time at nearly all the major studios.
In the mid 1970’s Condon wrote the introduction to W.H.
Bowart’s “Operation  Mind  Control” and  was amazed at what
Bowart had uncovered.
When asked if he’d known  about   the MKULTRA  program of  the
CIA,  Condon  told Bowart,”  I just  read Salter  and Pavlov  and
invented the rest.” Today,   there  are those  who still  believe
Condon had inside information.
Condon  gave  Bowart  his  wholehearted  support  and     said
“Operation   Mind   Control”   was,”   Moral,   significant   and
unforgettable…”
In 1977 Condon wrote to Bowart after  reading his  non-fiction
account of the cryptocracy’s developments in mind control:”I feel
like a monk in the Dark Ages who is writing to the  captain of  a
Space Ship. .. This whole thing blows my mind…’
Survivors  include  his  wife,  Evelyn,  two  daughters,   and
grandchildren.

MIND CONTROL SURVIVOR, STEVE BRATCHER, DIAGNOSED “TERMINAL”

A  long  term  mind  control researcher,  Steve Bratcher,  38,
recently underwent surgery for brain cancer.   Doctors  predicted
that “unless a miracle happens” Bratcher wouldn’t live much  past
September.
A private investigator who founded SKBI Research, Bratcher was
a long time private contractor for the CIA. When terminating  his
employ with  CIA he  says he  experienced a  ten-month period  of
“detainment” in  Florida during which time he described being an
involuntary victim of a variety of high-tech mind control
experiments. He described holographic phenomena and “remote
mental telepathy,” as well as UFO-like phenomenon and a variety
of “tortures” commonly described by the survivors of mind
control. His account is available on videotape from FOTF by
special request.
Bratcher notified  FOTF of  his condition  before he  traveled
from his home in MacLean, Va. to New York City for surgery.   The
primary site of  the cancer  was thought  to be  in his  prostate
gland.  The  secondary  site  was  thought  to be  in his  brain.
According  to  his  videotaped  account,  photographed  in  1993,
Bratcher  believed  he  was  exposed  to  more than  one kind  of
radiation. He had  suffered severe headaches since the ten  month
long experiment.
Bratcher told the FOTF in a series of email messages all under
the heading “Terminated,” —  “I thought this was a great country
when  I  started  working  for it.  I volunteered…  You can  be
patriotic… you can volunteer… just  hope that  you don’t  get
picked…”
Bratcher said that what he believed to be  implants had  shown
up in the x-rays of his head.

OPERATION OPEN EYES

Disaffected Spook Spills SEAL Mind Control Experiences

The following  information was titled “A Working Outline of  a
U.S. Intelligence Mind Control Program” when  received. It  comes
from a former Navy Intelligence officer who was  attached to  the
CIA and was  also a  Navy SEAL  team leader.  Shortly before  his
“separation” from the “community” he was the overall commander of
all the SEAL teams. To clarify: “Open Eyes”  is the  name of  the
entire  operation.  A  “Clear  Eyes”  is a  programmed victim  of
“Operation Open Eyes.” The following  opinions are  not those  of
the Freedom of Thought  Foundation, nor  of the  editors of  FREE
THINKING.

This segment is dedicated to Operation “Open Eyes,.” A  preset
group of our people canvass the country hospitals and immigration
centers  in  order  to  find  viable candidates  for above  named
operation. We locate the target  individuals, who  have no  close
family or real good friends. They are then put under heavy  stage
one  hypnosis,  where  a clear  and definitive  pattern of  their
usefulness is determined by our  shrinks and  field officers.  If
the candidate possesses a relatively high IQ he will be filed  in
a category file, called “call file.”
If  the tested  applicant has  more than  120 IQ,  he will  be
serviced  by  a  trigger  word  or  number, while  under level  1
hypnosis.  We  then  systematically  do a  background search  and
create a file for future reference. If there are no relatives  to
speak of, the subject will be moved to a location  of our  choice
where further tests for vulnerability are conducted.  He is  then
brought  to  level  2  hypnosis  where diverse  small orders  and
specific instructions are written into his personality.
If  subject,  upon  release   shows  that   he  has   retained
instructions and carries out small and  unimportant work  duties,
assigned  under  level  2  hypnosis,  he  will  receive a  recall
“Service notice” by a person we have introduced him to.
The next step is level  3 hypnosis,  where he  will become  an
overwrite  upon his  own personality.  He/She will  be told  that
everything  the  subject  does for  his “friends”  is okay,  even
though it may very well be against all laws of the land. He  will
believe  that  he  is  capable  of  fulfilling  all  their  (our)
commands, and will be again discharged to live his normal life. (
All operatives have to go to/through these 3 levels before any of
us are fielded!)
The  higher  the  IQ  of  a  given  subject,  the further  the
programming goes! If  the IQ  is high  enough we  will bring  the
subject to the Farm or one of our numerous facilities  throughout
the U.S. and Canada. ( Dallas —  “Doctor’s Hospital”  is one  of
our main centers.)
There we will put the subject into level 4 hypnosis, where  he
does no longer differentiate  between right  and wrong.  ( We  do
this at the medical facility at the Farm — one  of our  contract
hospitals.  If  he  has  to  perform a  articulately suicidal  or
important assignment we do our job at Stony Mountain facilities.)
At level 4, diverse programs can be  written/or overwritten  into
the brain. Any command is accepted at this level.  At that  level
you can give the test subject a complete personality, history and
make  him/her  believe  anything  the  program  requires for  the
accomplishment of any desired  project. He  is then  given a  new
life  in  a  new  state  and  town. Driver’s  license, car,  bank
account, passport, credit cards, Birth Certificate,  and all  the
small things — such as photos of his family  (that don’t  really
exist.) Subject and patient (one and the same) has now an  agenda
(that  he  believes  is  his  own) and  is prepared  for level  5
hypnosis. At this stage, very carefully a code  word or  sequence
of numbers or a voice imprint is etched into his  brain. That  is
commonly known and referred to as the trigger that will  activate
subject to action.
He then lives a very normal and sometimes  useful life,  until
subject  is required  to perform  the programs  implanted/written
into level 4 hypnosis  at the  point of  activating the  trigger,
subject is beyond recall. That’s why a level 5 person can only be
approached after his/her operation. There is no actual recall  in
the subconscious program of any  of the  hypnosis. If  an act  of
violence  had  been  perpetrated,  subject  will not  be able  to
associate with the deed. Only shrinks trained in this  particular
form of sub mental behavior will find any tracks leading to  post
level 1 or 2 mind control.
I have  personally witnessed  level 1-5  programming, and  was
myself a subject of level 3 programming.
Due to the fact that  subject has  such high  IQ (  Preferably
around 130-140) subject its very quick to learn  anything fed  to
him/her. All major patriot groups, and normal workers and workers
in big (government contract firms) corporations have at least one
or more “sleepers” attached to them.
Project Clear Eyes is always a violent group or commune in any
given community. The OKC incident was a clear cut case of project
clear eyes. Tom Valentine’s group  is the  trigger mechanism  for
Open Eyes. Waco was an Open Eyes group that had a specific job to
perform. Randy Weaver was  a control  subject that  ended out  of
control. Robert Hunt is a sleeper that was put on  hold. At  some
not too distant date you will see  Bob Hunt  performing his  true
and final role.
Now it must be clear to  you the  various levels  used by  the
Intel community to get their job done. Remember Jonestown? It was
one of ours that went sour because a clear       eyes was in  the
group.   When   he   began   firing   on  the   runway,  it   all
self-destructed. The man (Congressman Leo Ryan)  who was  killed,
knew it was a government operation. Clear  Eyes was  accidentally
— through a lone sequence — activated! There was no way to stop
the killings. They were all programmed to at least  level 3,  the
culties  themselves.  There were  only 3  deaths attributable  to
cyanide, the rest died of  gunfire. Now  you know  a little  more
about our line of work. I am glad I am out of it.

CIA Secret Experiments

I think all of you know, that CIA has conducted different kind of experiments towards people. Here is some article and documentary about this situation:

This National Geographic documentary looks into the CIA’s secret experiments conducted during the Cold War. It mainly focuses on mind control and the brainwashing techniques attached to it : Hypnosis, electroshock therapy and drugs.

CIA Secret Experiments explores a page of the book History that is often heavily redacted or completely shredded. It is about the troubling experiments conducted by the CIA during the Cold War, especially on mind control. The documentary explains how its techniques can be used to create “Manchurian candidates” (aka MK slaves) that can be used to conduct assassinations and other deeds.

It’s the height of the Cold War and the United States government is desperate to combat the spread of Communism. The CIA launches a highly classified, top secret research program into the covert use of biological and chemical agents. In simulated attacks on enemy populations, entire cities in America are contaminated with bacteria, exposing millions of Americans to germ warfare.

But the real focus of the research is on mastering the art of mind control. Psychiatrists at top academic institutions work under secret contract with the agency. Psychiatric patients, prisoners, even unwitting members of the public are exposed to a startling array of experiments designed to facilitate interrogations, induce amnesia and program in new behavior.

Every psychological technique is explored, including hypnosis, electroshock therapy and lethal cocktails of drugs. What was the extent of these brainwashing experiments? How did the CIA become involved in such far-reaching and disturbing research?’

Here it is.

While the documentary puts into light a wealth of important facts, it does not expose the entire system. Mind control is not simply an “experiment” that was developed to beat the USSR. It is actually a system that is more powerful today than it ever was. It is more covert, a lot sophisticated and it is used for all kinds of purposes and, in all kinds of fields, including the military, the entertainment industry and elite underground rings.
