Senate report on CIA torture is one step closer to disappearing

The CIA inspector general’s office — the spy agency’s internal watchdog — has acknowledged it “mistakenly” destroyed its only copy of a mammoth Senate torture report at the same time lawyers for the Justice Department were assuring a federal judge that copies of the document were being preserved, Yahoo News has learned.

While another copy of the report exists elsewhere at the CIA, the erasure of the controversial document by the office charged with policing agency conduct has alarmed the U.S. senator who oversaw the torture investigation and reignited a behind-the-scenes battle over whether the full unabridged report should ever be released, according to multiple intelligence community sources familiar with the incident.

The deletion of the document has been portrayed by agency officials to Senate investigators as an “inadvertent” foul-up by the inspector general. In what one intelligence community source described as a series of errors straight “out of the Keystone Cops,” CIA inspector general officials deleted an uploaded computer file with the report and then accidentally destroyed a disk that also contained the document, filled with thousands of secret files about the CIA’s use of “enhanced” interrogation methods.

“It’s breathtaking that this could have happened, especially in the inspector general’s office — they’re the ones that are supposed to be providing accountability within the agency itself,” said Douglas Cox, a City University of New York School of Law professor who specializes in tracking the preservation of federal records. “It makes you wonder what was going on over there?”

The incident was privately disclosed to the Senate Intelligence Committee and the Justice Department last summer, the sources said. But the destruction of a copy of the sensitive report has never been made public. Nor was it reported to the federal judge who, at the time, was overseeing a lawsuit seeking access to the still classified document under the Freedom of Information Act, according to a review of court files in the case.

A CIA spokesman, while not publicly commenting on the circumstances of the erasure, emphasized that another unopened computer disk with the full report has been, and still is, locked in a vault at agency headquarters. “I can assure you that the CIA has retained a copy,” wrote Dean Boyd, the agency’s chief of public affairs, in an email.

The 6,700-page report, the product of years of work by the Senate Intelligence Committee, contains meticulous details, including original CIA cables and memos, on the agency’s use of waterboarding, sleep deprivation and other aggressive interrogation methods at “black site” prisons overseas. A 500-page executive summary was released in December 2014 by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the committee’s outgoing chair. It concluded that the CIA’s interrogations were far more brutal than the agency had publicly acknowledged and produced often unreliable intelligence. The findings drew sharp dissents from Republicans on the panel and from four former CIA directors.

But the full three-volume report, which formed the basis for the executive summary, has never been released. In light of a U.S. Court of Appeals ruling last week that the document is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act, there are new questions about whether it will ever be made public, or even be preserved.

After receiving inquiries from Yahoo News, Feinstein, now the vice chair of the committee,wrote CIA Director John Brennan last Friday night asking him to “immediately” provide a new copy of the full report to the inspector general’s office.

“Your prompt response will allay my concern that this was more than an ‘accident,’” Feinstein wrote, adding that the full report includes “extensive information directly related to the IG’s ongoing oversight of the CIA.” (CIA spokesman Boyd declined to comment.)

The incident is the latest twist in the ongoing battle over the report, and comes in the midst of a charged political debate over torture. Likely Republican Party nominee Donald Trump has vowed to resume such methods — “and a lot more” — in the war against the Islamic State. “I love it, I love it,” Trump recently said, describing his views on waterboarding. “The only thing is, we should make it much tougher than waterboarding.” )

The CIA allegedly tortured two terror suspects, Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, in its secret facility in Poland. Shown here in this 2005 photo is a watchtower near the Polish intelligence school just outside of Stare Kiejkuty, Poland. Ironically in light of the inspector general’s actions, the intelligence committee’s investigation was triggered by the CIA’s admission in 2007 that it had destroyed another key piece of evidence — hours of videotapes of the waterboarding of two “high value” detainees, Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri.

According to a brief by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which is seeking release of the full report under the Freedom of Information Act, the document “describes widespread and horrific human rights abuses by the CIA” and details the agency’s “evasions and misrepresentations” to Congress, the courts and the public.

To ensure the document was circulated widely within the government, and to preserve it for future declassification, Feinstein, in her closing days as chair, instructed that computer disks containing the full report be sent to the CIA and its inspector general, as well as the other U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Aides said Feinstein specifically included a separate copy for the CIA inspector general because she wanted the office to undertake a full review. Her goal, as she wrote at the time, was to ensure “that the system of detention and interrogation described in this report is never repeated.”

But her successor, Republican Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, quickly asked for all of the disks to be returned, even threatening at one point to send a committee security officer to retrieve them. He contended the volumes are congressional records that were never intended for executive branch, much less public, distribution.

The administration, while not complying with Burr’s demand to return the disks, has essentially sided with him against releasing them to the public. Early last year, Justice lawyers instructed federal agencies to keep their copies of the document under lock and key, unopened, lest the courts treat them as government records subject to the Freedom of Information Act. Weeks later, in an effort to head off a motion for “emergency relief” by the ACLU, a Justice Department lawyer told U.S. Judge James Boasberg that no copies of the report would be returned to Congress or destroyed; the government “can assure the Court that it will preserve the status quo” until the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit was resolved, wrote Vesper Mei, a senior counsel in the Justice Department’s civil division, in a February 2015 filing.

But last August, a chagrined Christopher R. Sharpley, the CIA’s acting inspector general, alerted the Senate intelligence panel that his office’s copy of the report had vanished. According to sources familiar with Sharpley’s account, he explained it this way: When it received its disk, the inspector general’s office uploaded the contents onto its internal classified computer system and destroyed the disk in what Sharpley described as “the normal course of business.” Meanwhile someone in the IG office interpreted the Justice Department’s instructions not to open the file to mean it should be deleted from the server — so that both the original and the copy were gone.

At some point, it is not clear when, after being informed by CIA general counsel Caroline Krass that the Justice Department wanted all copies of the document preserved, officials in the inspector general’s office undertook a search to find its copy of the report. They discovered, “S***, we don’t have one,” said one of the sources briefed on Sharpley’s account.

Sharpley was apologetic about the destruction and promised to ask CIA director Brennan for another copy. But as of last week, he seems not to have received it; after Yahoo News began asking about the matter, he called intelligence committee staffers to ask if he could get a new copy from them.

Sharpley also told Senate committee aides he had reported the destruction of the disk to the CIA’s general counsel’s office, and Krass passed that information along to the Justice Department. But there is no record in court filings that department lawyers ever informed the judge overseeing the case that the inspector general’s office had destroyed its copy of the report.

The episode was viewed among intelligence committee aides as another embarrassment for the inspector general’s office. Months earlier, a CIA accountability board had overruled the IG’s findings that agency officials had improperly searched computers used by Senate investigators working on the report. Sharpley has been serving as acting inspector general since his predecessor, David Buckley, resigned in January 2015. The White House has yet to nominate a successor.

A Justice Department spokesman said on Friday that, since the inspector general’s office is, by statute, a “unit” of the CIA, and the agency still had its copy, “the status quo … was preserved.” But Feinstein, in a separate letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch last Friday, took a different view: She asked that the Justice Department “notify the federal courts” involved in the Freedom of Information Act litigation about the destruction.

At issue in the ongoing legal dispute is whether the report is subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The administration says no, and a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals last week agreed, ruling that it is a congressional document not subject to FOIA, under the terms of a 2009 letter by which the Senate panel had received access to CIA files. The judges did write, however, that the executive branch does have “some discretion to use the full report for internal purposes.” The ACLU said on Friday it was “considering our options for appeal”; CIA spokesman Boyd said the agency’s copy of the report would be retained “pending the final result of the litigation.” But he pointedly made no mention of what would happen to the CIA’s copy of the report after that.

In the meantime, Feinstein, joined by Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, has taken a different route, petitioning David S. Ferriero, the chief of the National Archives, to formally declare the report a “federal record” that must be preserved “in the public interest” under a law known as the Federal Records Act.

In a letter last month, the senators expressed concerns that federal agencies might destroy their copies of the report. “No part of the executive branch has ruled out destroying or sending back the full report to Congress after the conclusion of the current FOIA litigation,” they wrote in an April 13, 2016,     letter. A similar point was raised by more than 30 advocacy groups who noted in a separate letter to Ferriero last month that the archivist had a duty to act whenever there was a threat that government records are at risk of “unauthorized destruction.”

Ferriero on April 29 wrote back to Feinstein that he would not rule on the question until the FOIA court case is concluded. And last week, Burr renewed his call to have all copies of the report sent back — presumably a way to ensure they are never publicly released. Citing the new Court of Appeals ruling, “Sen. Burr anticipates the return of these full reports to the Senate Intelligence Committee,” a spokeswoman said.

New Documents Reveal NSA Agents Participated in Gitmo Interrogations

New files released by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden reveal that personnel from the NSA worked alongside US military, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and other interrogators at Guantanamo Bay.

guantanamo_rtr_img

On Monday, the Intercept released more of the trove of information obtained by Snowden, including internal NSA Signals Intelligence Directorate (SID) documents advertising for personnel to go to Cuba and join the interrogations at Gitmo. One person who made the trip lamented about the Tiki Bar and how relaxing the island known for torture is.

“Fun awaits,” one liaison who went to Gitmo wrote of the trip. “Water sports are outstanding: boating, paddling, fishing, water skiing and boarding, sailing, swimming, snorkeling, and SCUBA.”

“Relaxing is easy,” he concluded.

The SID document calls for a NSA liaison officer to “get to Gitmo for 90 days” to work with the CIA, FBI, and Department of Defense while conducting interrogations “on a daily basis in order to assess and exploit information sourced from detainees.”

The NSA was not just looking for someone to stand by, either, according to the reports. The NSA personnel also participated in the interrogations — which have notoriously included torture.

Another SID document included in the release explained that an NSA liaison had reported working with the Joint Interrogation Group on a “strategic” and “tactical” interrogation.

“On a given week,” the NSA liaison wrote, he would “pull together intelligence to support an upcoming interrogation, formulate questions and strategies for the interrogation, and observe or participate in the interrogation.”

In other cases, the roles of the agencies would reverse and the NSA would provide interrogators with “sensitive NSA-collected technical data and products to assist JTF-GTMO [Joint Task Force Guantánamo] interrogation efforts.”

The torture that took place at Gitmo included waterboarding, mock executions, the use of dogs on detainees, rectal force feeding, and sleep deprivation.

“Neither the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s detention and rendition program (which confirmed the existence of two CIA facilities at Guantánamo) nor a 2008 Senate Armed Services Committee report on detainee abuse by the military addresses the role of the NSA, at least in the heavily censored versions that have been made public,” Cora Currier noted for the Intercept.

In 2009, President Barack Obama signed an executive order requiring Gitmo to be closed within one year.

“The detention facilities at Guantánamo for individuals covered by this order shall be closed as soon as practicable, and no later than 1 year from the date of this order,” read the statement he signed on Jan. 22, 2009

There are currently 80 people being indefinitely detained at the controversial military facility, many of whom have never been charged with a crime.

Mega List of Confirmed Conspiracy Theories

 Updated Compilation of Confirmed Conspiracy Theories

The Following Mega-List of confirmed conspiracy theories was put together by Reddit user 911bodysnatchers322 and the IRC Chatroom for the /r/conspiracy sub-Reddit community. According to the original post the name body-snatchers is representative of the establishment. They’ve managed to hijack most people’s brains and weaponize them. Like the 1970s film with Donald Sutherland, Leonard Nimoy and Jeff Goldblum, where they go on the run from people who’ve been taken over by alien pods and act like a ‘networked school of fish’. This is how I think of most people (people who aren’t here on /r/conspiracy, basically).  mega list guys


Foreword:

You’ll notice many are prefaced by the word, ‘Project’, typically by the CIA or other international intelligence agency. This may give you the idea that these are just ‘typical operations’ of our government. After all, “the world is always at war and you need spies”. Or do you? Especially in a technocratic world where everyone can talk to everyone, around the world. I challange that assumption.

May I remind you that the definition of conspiracy is two or more operating in secret to cause harm. So when the CIA assassinates world leaders in secret, it does harm to them but not to US citizens because they are operating on our behalf. In this way, we justify their bad behavior. I want you to reevaluate the “causes harm” part behind their behavior. By deposing dictators and playing chess with the planet, have they really made us safer?

In 1967, the CIA coined the term as part of apsychological operation They’ve used the media to wage a mass mind control campaign to discredit anyone with an idea that is not accepted by the establishment. [U,O-media]
  • Continuity of Operations Plan : Intended as emergency plan, this status elevates the US intelligence community into extrajuditional operation, making it a ‘shadow government’ that has continued for 15(+) yrs since 9/11. Obama says, “the CIA gets what it wants”. This operational modality is why. It makes the CIA “above the law.” Bush renewed it twice, Obama renewed it twice. There is no evidence that there is a plan to deescalate the ’emergency state of 9/11′ even 15 yrs later. Wikipedia has attempted to ‘scrub the article of Obama’ but failed because of us, here on /r/conspiracy. We are the Watchers on the Wall. [U,P,M,C]-[F,O,P]-[G]-[I]

ECHELON was confirmed by The Intercept in 2015 from Snowden revelations. Note that this was once in a conspiracy-gray-area of “covert protective operations of the CIA”, until 9/11, after which the government started lying, manipulating the public and acting like an enemy of the global citizen; and taking actions that would appear counter to the interests of the american people (ie: “stopping terrorism by spreading violence and occupation around the world, begetting only more of the same”), leading 1 out of 4 of them to believe the government is the enemy. [U]-[P,I,G,O]
  • Enron and Arthur Anderson Scandal : massive-scale financial accounting fraud that stole money from millions of shareholders immediately after 9/11, leading to a class action that bankruped Enron. The fraud was facilitated by one of the largest auditing firms Arthur Anderson, also bankrupted. Arthur Anderson was found guilty of destroying documents, thereby voiding its business. Later AA managed to overturn this decision by the Supreme Court on a bogus technicality but no one would ever trust them again. The Enron/AA scandal has been linked to 9/11 by the records of the FBI’s investigations of Enron’s gold derivatives manipulation destroyed on the 23rd floor of the north tower. [F,P]-[U]

  • Foundation X : secretive Foundation X was discovered in an article about Jon Stewart and his possible connection to Templars, “Secretive Knights Templar Make Astounding Bid To Save World”, and confirmed by Lord James of Blackheath’s 2010 speech to UK’s House of Lords about Foundation X’s 15,000,000,000,000 baiout offer. In 2012, Lord James has come to the following conclusions about Foundation X, “I think there may have been a massive piece of money laundering committed by a major government which ought to know better and that it has effectively undermined the integrity of the British bank the Royal Bank of Scotland, in doing so. The second alternative is that amajor American department has an agency that has gone rogue on it because it has been wound up and has created a structure out of which they are seeking to get at least 50 billion Euros as a payoff. And the third possibility is that this is an extraordinarily elaborate fraud which has not been carried out but which has been prepared in order to provide a threat to one government or more if they don’t pay them off. So there are three possibilities and this all needs a very urgent review.” This whole affair was of course shut down–rather disrespectfully–in the US media as a conspiracy theory. and fairly compared to a nigerian email scam in the Guardian. [G,U,M,F]
  • Gary Webb’s suicide : Journalist/Reporter of CIA Drug Trafficking and author of “Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion” committed suicide by 2 gunshots to the head, although his wife said it was a real suicide. Two months before his death, Webb wrote a revealing analysis in the Sacramento News of US Military’s multiplayer game “America’s Army”, released fourth of july after 9/11, as a recruitment tool for a high-tech army of the future. (drone operators). The article contained the quote, ‘”The Army and the Defense Department have a very long history of conducting unethical, illegal experiments upon soldiers and civilians,” Thompson angrily reminded players in a posting to the official Army Web site. “This ‘game’ is yet another experiment upon the unsuspecting pawns who play it.

  • Prescott Bush aided the Nazis : Bush received a slap on wrist for violating the ‘Trading with the Enemy Act’because of his last-minute promotion of Veterans programs. The psychohistorical, fascist underpinnings of the motivational, *dada-approval-seeking-behavior of future Bushlings. (He no doubt used widows son excuse or held up geronimo’s skull) [G,F,O,P]

[U,P]
  • Room 641A : NSA’s covert, co-located, mass-surveillance facility within AT&T; operating illegally for years. [U]
  • Russell Welch : Arkansas state police whistleblower who collected evidence for decades about CIA cocaine smuggling via Mena, Arkansas; and claimed Barry Seal was trafficking more than cocaine in place like Mena in Oklahoma. Wikipedia had deleted this article after whining about the sources maybe being inaccurate and labeling it ‘fringe conspiracy theory’, when it’s really a government witness testimony corroborated by 2 others directly involved, one of which actually did the smuggling.[who?][source?]. [U,P,M]
  • Russian Woodpecker : Russian Duga Radar Tower used ostensibly for detecting nuclear weaponry, has, according to late Dr. Bob Beck, electronics physicist for US intelligence research and then-investigator of the Eugene Oregon ‘woodpecker signal’ shortwave interference pattern, created a 10Hz biologically-active resonant interference wave (“reconstructing heterodynes” via “signal-harmonic of 50Hz”) by weaponizing the US power grid itself.

  • Stargate Project : DIA and SRI international project to study psychic phenomenon, remote viewing, and other ‘psychotronics’. (In this context, ‘psychic’ weaponry, distinct from ‘biologically active electronic weaponry’ now more commonly called ‘directed energy weapons’ or DAWs; the conflation of the two is very purposeful, it’s to make someone sound dumb for using the term.)
  • Stingray devices : used illegally by law enforcement, until we found out about them. [P,U]
  • Stuxnet : under the name Equation Group, NSA/CIA wrote extremely complex malware to ruin Iranian nuclear centerfuges by targetting very specific Siemans chips. “The techniques and knowledge used by the Equation Group were considered in summary to be “out of the reach of most advanced threat groups in the world except [this group].” (In other words only a very advanced, well-funded, state-sponsored group. All signs point to NSA. We’ll find out in about 40 yrs when its declassified.) [U,O,P]
  • Suppressing Sarkhan : A book later released as “The Deceptive American” initially disappeared from bookshelves because Lederer claims CIA thought it revealed too much about their current operations in Thailand. [U]
  • Testimony of Nayirah : “They took the bebbies from the incubehtoors!” SOB. Everyone believed. We went. Many died. On a lie. [A,U]
  • Tepper Aviation : CIA funded proxy war by giving arms secretly to Angola. (One of many illegal proxy wars.) [U]

  • The USS Liberty incident : Our pals, Israel attacked a US ship, killing 34. [I,A]
  • Waco Seige : Seventh Day adventist based religious group in Texas was beseiged by US forces, and burned to death for not surrendering their leader, because their leader David Koresh was busy furiously writing his religious visions at the time of the seige, and had already told them he would surrender when finished. (The US Government murdered those people. So now, when you meet a Seventh Day adventist, do you feel safer, knowing they’ve been put in their place?) [U,P]
  • Watergate Scandal : a political scandal remembered as illegal surveillance was actually much bigger, wider scale than reportage gave and memory would suggest. [U,P]
  • WTC terrorist attack of 1993 : Officially, a WTC truck bombing by Islamic terrorists. In actuality, they were FBI informants provoked into the event. Open source investigator James Corbett demonstrated this is yet another state-sponsored terrorist, false flag event by the FBI. [U,P]

EDIT: Things that didn’t make it. I can’t just add them because I have a character limit, so I’m going to have to do a second release and stop editorializing so much.
