FBI Admits It Was Not The Russians - Launches Manhunt For "Insider" Who Leaked CIA Docs To WikiLeaks

Tyler Durden's picture

Having exclaimed that WikiLeaks is "a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia," laying the blame for every embarrassing leak at Moscow's footsteps, the FBI and CIA have admitted that they are searching for an "insider" (not a Russian) who exposed thousands of top-secret documents that described CIA tools used to penetrate smartphones, smart televisions and computer systems.

As CBS News reports,  a manhunt is underway for a traitor inside the Central Intelligence Agency.

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.

In his first public comments as director of the CIA just last week, Mike Pompeo railed against WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange.

“It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” he said.

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.

It seems once again that WikiLeaks' facts were 'facts' and CIA/FBI 'facts' were 'fake'.

Nothing will come of this.

Actually something is sure to come of this. You can bet they have a long list of names of people who over the years have been a major pain in their butt. The only delay will be in paring down that list and choosing the optimum patsy ... the one that will put a real scare in the others on the list.

They can't manufacture a patsy for this.  That would leave the real whistleblower in place to discredit their story, or to whack them again at a later time of his choosing.

The word "can't" is not to be found anywhere in their vocabulary. They not only "can" ... they "will".

Then what do they do about the real unknown whistleblower continuing to lurk in their midst?

NSA employees: 30K - 40K
CIA employees: 21K +
DIA employees: 17K +
FBI employees: 34K +

Do you really think there's just one?

And do you ever wonder why this many people looking out for our security can't find out why WTC7 fell down?

Iterative secession. The time is right.

WHO fucking cares at this point given the level of damage since this (http://www.ae911truth.org/) has gone unresolved given the whitewash of the "9/11 Commission Report".

We are so deep with "layers" of deceit and contempt for the rule of law in Washington at this point it is the equivalent of "howling at the moon" in the wilderness with no demonstrable means of holding those responsible for the crimes they keep committing?...

If Russia really wanted to hurt the US through wikileaks they could just release the Russian intel on what happened on 9/11.  I don't pretend to know what happened that day but the official narrative smells and it would be interesting to see what the Kremlins thoughts are on it.

I have always prayed that a really, really brave patriot would come forward and give Wikileaks/Assange all the real deal files on 9/11 

I pray that it happens in my lifetime.

"I have always prayed that a really, really brave patriot would come forward and give Wikileaks/Assange all the real deal files on 9/11"...

"real deal files on 9/11"?... You mean like this (http://www.ae911truth.org/)???... That organization was founded more than 10 years ago and has had certified scientist and engineering representatives visit the halls of the Rayburn building more than a few times with nobody volunteering their time or support after they reviewed the material they were given!

"WHY"?... Because when they snuffed out Senator Paul Wellstone and pointed to his "early departure" from politics to set the tone for anyone else in Congress or the Senate attempting to do the same "EVERYONE" backed down out of fear of "early retirement"!


Where were the American people to make it a pivotal issue to decide the likes of "Barry Soetoro" in his first and second "Hope & Change" election(s)???

Looks like Trump was a False messiah.

"Looks like Trump was a False messiah."

No poco

"Cheeto head" was never going to save US that is clear!

The only way the American people were going to show ANY integrity towards the last national election was if Bannon & Co. forced Trump's hand to announce the 9/11 investigation the American people NEVER GOT!(.) END OF STORY!

The dynamics for him doing it were perfect when you consider the redacted 28 pages on Saudi Arabia just happened to appear 15 years later?!!!

And the people that voted for him said you can't bring 9/11 up because he will be vilified as a conspiracy "TRUTHER NUT"!...

Now with less than 3 months in the White House we see him launching indiscriminate missile attacks on Syria and attempting to start another HOT war on North Korea in contradiction to everything he said he would do in his campaign -just like Obama... just like G.W.... just like Clinton!

The American people are the laziest motherfuckers on the planet. And they will be getting everything they deserve for that feckless behavior that has cost them EVERYTHING for moar war(s) of choice that have bankrupted them into submission since 9/11/2001 happened!

Netanyahu says: “Israel has not been damaged at all by the WikiLeaks publications. On the contrary, the documents showed support in many quarters for Israel’s assessments, especially on Iran.”


"Assange's tough childhood, one in which he was raised in a religious cult, the Santiniketan Park Association, also known as "The Family" and "The Great White Brotherhood" and led by yoga guru Anne-Hamilton Byrne.

The Family, in addition to meting out corporal punishment and sleep and food deprivation, subjected the children of cult members to psychotropic drugs, including psychiatric drugs Anatensol, Diazepam, Haloperidol, Largactil, Mogadon, Serepax, Stelazine, Tegretol or Tofranil. Children were also subjected to LSD. WMR has learned that the cult had links to mind control operations run jointly by the CIA and its partner, the Australian Security Intelligence Organization (ASIO). In 1978, the Victoria Police shut down the cult. Thus, Assange's apparent first, albeit involuntary, interaction with an intelligence agency came when he was a child being abused by the Santiniketan cult. The Family of Australia bears striking similarities to another child abuse cult in the United States linked to the CIA: "The Finders." http://www.conspiracyplanet.com/channel.cfm?channelid=2&contentid=7840&page=2

Key word is "apparent". Got any evidence? Assange seems quite capable of independent thinking, but I'm not so sure about you.

"The names and addresses of 2,619 "CIA sources": Young first published this list in December 2000, describing it as a list of CIA sources passed on by an anonymous tipster. It turned out to be the membership directory of the Association for Intelligence Officers, a group largely made up of retired CIA agents. One of the names on the list was Nicholas Natsios, Young's father-in-law, who was a career CIA officer."

Better solution for the "non state hostile intelligence service" just stop violating the 4th amendment and you might not have people "abetting" I mean leaking information.

Also the article is bogus it cites RT which doesn't even have 30K cable subscriptions in the US so it doesn't register a Nielson rating at all yet somehow RT convinced us all to vote for Trump get real.

Cable?  I don't have TV at the moment, but I did several years ago.  I did not have cable.  I just watched what came in over the air, and RT came in crystal clear.

How predictable! 

The Russians are not necessary anymore as Trump has fallen over sufficiently for his Deep State handlers.

Bannon's muted, and Kushner is keeping an eye on him.

Trump sold out to the deep state and the neocons. Notice how ALL of the media attacks against Trump have STOPPED!!!

Now he is a puppet of the neocons and George Soros!  

Never ending wars, regime changes, color revolutions and being the world's policeman make America great!

Make the Neocons Great Again!

Fuck him!

Have you mental midgets finally figured out why Trump cannot and will not release his IRS tax files?

Because the Evidence there would bring about his demise, when the information leads to who financed and refinanced his RE and other holdings. 

He's using every trick in the book, to divert attention and arguments away from his Taxes, for this reason alone.

I tried to tell you during the Campaign, but you wouldn't listen. You were all about "Lock her up!" How did that work out for you?

Instead of focusing on the M/E and NK, maybe the military should surround the CIA, NSA, IRS, FBI and take all these people in and charge them with treason, human rights violations and crimes agains humanity.  There is plenty of evidence.

Close down these secret prisons they have, cut off their arms dealing and drug money and what do they have left.

Nuke them.
