There was one article that really broke it all down but I couldn’t find it. Maybe someone else could find it. In the mean time here are a few I did find. Just think, now it appears his VP will be running the show.
Intelligence was alerted in 2008, but the man responsible for the alarm was fired, and then over the next five years, dozens of people were slaughtered while the Obama administration covered it up.
The spies were murdered in Iran and China after deliberately using a flawed Google communications app, but the “catastrophic” secret event was covered up.
Between 2009 and 2013, the US Central Intelligence Agency suffered a “catastrophic” secret communications failure in a website used by officers and their field agents, according to a report in Yahoo News.
“We’re still dealing with the fallout,” a former national security official stated. “Dozens of people around the world were killed because of this.”
The communications platform was first “used in the Middle East to communicate with soldiers in war zones and had not been intended for widespread use but due to its ease of use and efficacy, it was adopted by agents despite its lack of sophistication, the sources claimed.”
Iran discovered its existence and was able to use Google as a search tool to find secret CIA websites.
In Reidy’s official statement in 2008, he explained that 70 percent of operations at the time may have been compromised already and that any agents were in danger.
“The design and maintenance of the system is flawed,” he said.
The fact that the Obama administration allowed this to happen has many people wondering if it was deliberately coordinated with Google.
Why else would such a warning be ignored? Are American lives so cheap to democrats?
The mainstream media has barely mentioned this major event, so who knows if citizens will ever learn the truth.
CHINA DISRUPTED CIA OPERATIONS DURING OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, KILLING INFORMANTS AND CRIPPLING INTEL FOR YEARS
(National Sentinel)Â Intelligence:Â In yet another indication of the ineptitude and incompetence of the Obama administration – as well as its unwillingness to seriously confront a rising global power – CIA operations in China were severely disrupted beginning in 2010, with some informants actually being murdered by Beijing.
The New York Times reported Sunday that there was much disagreement over how CIA operations in China were compromised – some even suggesting that a mole within the agency was responsible. Also, the busted operations left many within the agency bitter and resentful as the U.S. intelligence community struggled mightily to contain the damage and fallout:
Current and former American officials described the intelligence breach as one of the worst in decades. It set off a scramble in Washingtonâ€™s intelligence and law enforcement agencies to contain the fallout, but investigators were bitterly divided over the cause. Some were convinced that a mole within the C.I.A. had betrayed the United States. Others believed that the Chinese had hacked the covert system the C.I.A. used to communicate with its foreign sources. Years later, that debate remains unresolved.
But there was no disagreement about the damage. From the final weeks of 2010 through the end of 2012, according to former American officials, the Chinese killed at least a dozen of the C.I.A.â€™s sources. According to three of the officials, one was shot in front of his colleagues in the courtyard of a government building â€” a message to others who might have been working for the C.I.A.
John Tkacik, a former State Department intelligence official, said the demotion of China to a second-tier priority reflects bias within the NSC staff.
“It means that the Obama administration doesn’t understand the profound challenge that China has become or, even more disturbing, it cannot understand that China’s challenges to America’s policies are becoming even more threatening with each passing week,” he said.
Mr. Hoekstra said he had not been briefed in advance about the NSC’s new policy on China intelligence gathering.
But the shift sends the wrong signal to the 16 agencies that make up the U.S. intelligence community that China is not important, he said in an interview.
“That’s a wrong analysis,” Mr. Hoekstra said. “The current situation with China is that they are cheating on trade agreements, aggressively pursuing military capabilities and aggressively conducting cyber-attacks.”
A military official also said recently that Army, Air Force and Navy intelligence components are just beginning to understand the growing need to focus more intelligence assets on the challenges posed by China’s military buildup and aggressive intelligence activities.
2010: The White House National Security Council recently directed U.S. spy agencies to lower the priority placed on intelligence collection for China, amid opposition to the policy change from senior intelligence leaders who feared it would hamper efforts to obtain secrets about Beijing’s military and its cyber-attacks.
The downgrading of intelligence gathering on China was challenged by Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair and CIA Director Leon E. Panetta after it was first proposed in interagency memorandums in October, current and former intelligence officials said.
Killing C.I.A. Informants, China Crippled U.S. Spying Operations
NYT/WASHINGTON — The Chinese government systematically dismantled C.I.A. spying operations in the country starting in 2010, killing or imprisoning more than a dozen sources over two years and crippling intelligence gathering there for years afterward.
This is simply stunning. A rollup of networks across the world — an event that began in Iran, where the Obama administration would soon enough be negotiating its much sought-after “nuclear deal framework,” and ended with numerous deaths is the kind of thing of which intelligence nightmares and national-security disasters are made.
One’s first instinct is to look back and see who was CIA director during that period: Leon Panetta (Feb. 2009-June 2011); Michael Morell (acting director, July-Sept. 2011); David Petraeus (Sept. 2011-Nov. 2012); Morell again (acting, Nov. 2012-March 2013); and finally John Brennan, who served out the remainder of the Obama administration.
This story now provides us a framework for looking at the high rate of turnover at CIA during this critical period during the first Obama administration, and perhaps offers some clues for the frantic nature of Iran nuclear deal, and the desperation with which some former administration officials still cling to it.
Besides Obama himself, the guy with the clearest view of the whole mess is Brennan, and wouldn’t it be interesting to get him before Congress to testify exactly just how and why things went so horribly wrong?
U.S. intelligence officials were well aware of Iran’s formidable cyber-espionage capabilities. But they were flabbergasted that Iran managed to extirpate an entire CIA spy network using a technique that one official described as rudimentary — something found in basic how-to books.
But the events in Iran were not self-contained; they coincided roughly with a similar debacle in China in 2011 and 2012, where authorities rounded up and executed around 30 agents working for the U.S. (the New York Times first reported the extirpation of the CIA’s China sources in May 2017).
Some U.S. intelligence officials also believe that former Beijing-based CIA officer Jerry Lee, who was charged with spying on behalf of the Chinese government in May 2018, was partially responsible for the destruction of the CIA’s China-based source network.
But Lee’s betrayal does not explain the extent of the damage, or the rapidity with which Chinese intelligence was able to identify and destroy the network, said former officials.
In 2008 — well before the Iranians had arrested any agents — a defense contractor named John Reidy, whose job it was to identify, contact and manage human sources for the CIA in Iran, had already sounded an alarm about a “massive intelligence failure” having to do with “communications” with sources.
According to Reidy’s publicly available but heavily redacted whistleblower disclosure, by 2010 he said he was told that the “nightmare scenario” he had warned about regarding the secret communications platform had, in fact, occurred.
“Can you imagine how different this whole story would’ve turned out if the CIA [inspector general] had acted on Reidy’s warnings instead of going after him?” said Kel McClanahan, Reidy’s attorney. “Can you imagine how different this whole story would’ve turned out if the congressional oversight committees had done oversight instead of taking CIA’s word that he was just a troublemaker?”
Irvin McCullough, a national security analyst with the Government Accountability Project, a nonprofit that works with whistleblowers, put the issue in even starker terms. “This is one of the most catastrophic intelligence failures since Sept. 11,” he said. “And the CIA punished the person who brought the problem to light.”
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration on Thursday announced what appeared to be one of the largest breaches of federal employees’ data, involving at least four million current and former government workers in an intrusion that officials said apparently originated in China.
The compromised data was held by the Office of Personnel Management, which handles government security clearances and federal employee records. The breach was first detected in April, the office said, but it appears to have begun at least late last year.
The target appeared to be Social Security numbers and other “personal identifying information,” but it was unclear whether the attack was related to commercial gain or espionage. The announcement of the intrusion came on the same day The New York Times reported that the National Security Agency had expanded warrantless surveillance of foreign hackers, an effort that could sweep up the information of innocent Americans.
Beginning in 2011, 60-year-old Candace Marie Claiborne and a male co-conspirator allegedly requested and received numerous gifts. It doesn’t cost much to turn traitor against America these days.
Bribes from Chinese intelligence agents included cash, an iPhone, a laptop, meals, international vacations, Chinese fashion school tuition, a sewing machine, a monthly stipend, and a fully-furnished apartment in exchange for information.
Accountability was nonexistent on Obama’s watch. Obama focused on gutting America’s national security.
As for his Attorney General, she ran interference for the Clinton campaign.
They didn’t have time to bother with Chinese recruitment of American spies. Charges against Claiborne include obstructing an official proceeding and making false statements to the FBI.
So much for Obama’s legacy.
In reality, Mr. Obama has presided over some of the worst scandals of any president in recent decades. Here’s a partial list:
#5 Hacking. Mr. Obama presided over the biggest data breach in the federal government’s history, at the Office of Personnel Management. The hack exposed the personnel files of millions of federal employees and may end up being used for everything from identity theft to blackmail and espionage. OPM Director Katherine Archuleta, the president’s former political director, had been warned repeatedly about security deficiencies but took no steps to fix them.
All of these scandals were accompanied by a lack of transparency so severe that 47 of Mr. Obama’s 73 inspectors general signed an open letter in 2014 decrying the administration’s stonewalling of their investigations.
One reason for Mr. Obama’s penchant for secrecy is his habit of breaking rules—from not informing Congress of the dubious prisoner swap involving Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and the Taliban, to violating restrictions on cash transfers to Iran as part of a hostage-release deal.
Former Vice President Joseph Biden says anyone looking to the Obama administration for a “whisper” of scandal will come up empty.
The 2020 presidential hopeful told the ladies of ABC’s “The View” on Friday that his proudest accomplishment while serving the White House is absolute avoidance of scandal.
“The thing I’m proudest of is, coincidentally, we were each in a different part of the country and we were each talking to groups of people that were being televised,” Mr. Biden said. “The same day, purely coincidentally, we were asked, ‘what are you proudest of from your administration?’
You know what I said — he said the same thing as I did. Not one single whisper of scandal. That’s because of Barack Obama.”
The “Chinagate” fundraising scandal plagued the 1996 Bill Clinton-Al Gore campaign and Hillary was very much involved. Chinagate aka Commercegate is the most serious scandal in U.S. history.
It involves the transfer of America’s most sensitive technology, including but not limited to nuclear missile and satellite technology, possibly in exchange for millions of dollars in contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore re-election effort and the Democratic National Committee.
The Chinagate scandal of 1996 ended up in an award of 900,000 in attorney’s fees and costs to Judicial Watch ten years later.
The scandal was an apparent scheme by the Clinton administration to sell seats on taxpayer-funded trade missions in exchange for campaign contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign.
Judicial Watch began an investigation and Clinton administration officials deliberately concealed and destroyed records regarding the trade mission and testimony was falsified.
Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state from January 21, 2009, to February 1, 2013. For four years, China was receiving the emails she sent and received in real time. The emails contained Top Secret intelligence.
According to a report released early this morning, China hacked into Hillary’s basement server, possibly through a phishing attack. They then embedded a code that sent out a “courtesy copy” to the Chinese for each and every one of her communication.
That brings up the question of whether or not Hillary could have been responsible for the purge of American spies in China in 2010. It’s speculation but just the fact that she could have been responsible should suggest that her violations of national security were very serious.
HILLARY’S NATIONAL SECURITY BREACHES SHOULD BE LOOKED INTO
At that point in time and until today, U.S. intelligence could not determine where the breach came from. There are a number of possibilities. We can now add Hillary Clinton’s lack of regard for security to the list.
By 2013, the FBI and CIA concluded that China no longer had the ability to identify American agents, the Times said.
Coincidentally, Hillary left the State Department in 2013.
GOHMERT REPORTED THIS IN JULY, PETER STRZOK DENIED IT
This would confirm Rep. Louie Gohmert’s statement at a July 12 House committee on the Judiciary hearing. He referred to the intruders as a “foreign entity” although he did say it was unrelated to Russia.
The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) in 2016 Charles McCullough III found an “anomaly on Hillary Clinton’s emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list,” Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said during a hearing with FBI official Peter Strzok.“
It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia,” he added.
Two officials with the ICIG investigator Frank Rucker and Attorney Janette McMillan met a number of times with the FBI to warn them. One of the FBI officials was Peter Strzok as the bureau’s top counterintelligence official.
When ICIG investigator Frank Rucker spoke with Strzok, he nodded but was remarkably uninterested in what Rucker had to say, Gohmert said.
Hmmm, I wonder how Biden going to handle China. He had 8 years of training under Obama to say the least.
God bless America and you. Thanks for taking the time.
