There Is A Traitor Inside The CIA

CBS: CIA, FBI launch manhunt for leaker who gave top-secret documents to WikiLeaks

WASHINGTON -- 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.

The trove was published in March by the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks.

But the leaks were of little current value since the inventory was of older OS exploits. Sounds more like a media "carrot" than a treasonous act.

Microsoft released a huge patch to it's OS the day after the OS leak.

That would suggest that:

- some of the exploits still are effective against current code,

and of course, most people don't run current, leading edge OS.

Were the Alphabet Agencies to confine their hacker "exploits" to foreign spies, terrorists, gun smugglers, plots, etc, they would be "hero's",

But they don't. In conjunction with 5 Eyes and other programs, they spy on "everybody", including many Orgs. that are working hard, and lawfully, to make the US a better place.

That makes them "villians", just like they were during CONTELINPRO in the '60's and '70's.

Wait wait wait. So you actually want the CIA to be able to access your phones, tablets etc etc?

He's got nothing to hide,

Except the porn site browser history, the tax cheats, the undeclared income, and the confessions of minor illegality.
