"The street here at six zero three two three six one six zero. Should you wish to call in. But it was mentioned on the air. And i don't want to because i know you have a really great story. I don't wanna use it up. We can talk about it. It's an evergreen little you you had a great story that is a little less evergreen About something about stealing houses to build walls. I i we have that. I'm gonna go ahead and jump in on this. Bitcoin is a boon for surveillance. Director So this is from decrypt dot. Co in brief the narrative that criminals are using bitcoin. For illicit activities overstated. A new report by former cia director. Michael morell argues government agencies. Should make better use of bitcoin technology as a forensic tool he said the technology behind. Bitcoin is a boon for surveillance and shouldn't be shunned by governments but embraced according to an boss. Michael morell who was previously the as acting director said an analysis of the bitcoins use elicit finance. That blockchain technologies powerful but underutilized powerful boat under underutilized for tool for governments to identify illicit activity and bring criminals to justice. Now i don't know when he says criminals who he's talking about well given that he's a cia guy. I presume that what he means by criminals is people who do things that are against the statutes of the given area right and for me a criminal is somebody who harms someone else and I think that a lot of people use that as functioning definition and they hear this and they think i don't know well no no no. That's that's an important thing to point out is that most people put these in the same category and the way that they think is if it's illegal than it's immoral and if it's immoral than it's illegal indeed and those lazy thinking and you haven't been paying attention to these people for some time if that's what you think so i wanted to point out. He says that it's underutilized. And this does tie into what. I was saying about Where you have these people that inherit a control mechanism that they know how to operate but they don't know how it works. So when something like crypto currency comes along they can't really update it. I mean when you had the thugs rummaging through this place. They were looking for physical bitcoins. Somewhere somewhere certainly not all but like that is a great example of how far behind they are on this. Yep we're because you know how to operate this technology but you don't actually know how it works you can't update it when you were facing something new. It also shows just how bad they're planning and management is is if some of them were looking for physical bitcoins and and thought they could pull them out of the wires of the back of a broadcast stack. Mind you And others were looking for virtual currency hardware wallets or whatever and then it just shows how bad they are at all of this but what this shows is that so here we have. Bitcoin schroeder gers blockchain because at the same time that bitcoin is used by terrorists and drug dealers. It is also a powerful tool for the government. Says michael morell former head of the cia. Now what i get about this. Is that when you have this wallet address if they can connect that to a person then they have an absolute record of every single thing that that person has done with this wallet address and you can use that to go. Okay well we know that this person is doing things we don't like so let's investigate these other wallets that are Moving to and from this person that we know that this will address goes too. Yep there's certainly a a great deal of forensic work that they can do and there's a great deal of things that people can do to obvious skate. Their crypto usage There's a there's a great wallet out called samurai wallet for bitcoin that allows you to Mix at low cost and that means to sort of take your bitcoin and you know shuffled up with other people's and then pull your crypto back out and it's you know it's a pretty cool tech but nonetheless it You gotta know what you're doing and not all as the former. Cia director says here is that it is overstated. The use of bitcoin by criminals and criminal organizations by far the government hasn't even gotten into how could cripple organizations really be into it. So there's a. There's no joke A guy asks to philosopher. Hey how's your wife. The philosopher says compared to what. But there's a good point there of like. Oh this is being used for this this and this well compared to what it was if you compare it to us dollars. Oh no oh yes right. Did us dollars euros. Far more used for for the For illicit activities for electives by both definitions right. So you know when you talk about bitcoin when you talk about. Us dollars the first thing you should think of if you're using the logic that has been applied to bitcoin is drug dealers and You know but human traffickers These are the people are using. Us dollars and euros and these fiat currencies But people will think that at all no so why because it's overstated right. As a percentage of the transactions that are out there. It's not very high well as a transaction of bitcoin bitcoin transactions are. There's a lot of 'em all day and very very very few of them. Are you know criminal activity and moved on to different cryptos. They far more than you do about cryptocurrency. Well and you have to think that okay if someone has a talent then they are going to want to get the best payment out of that talent that they can. And in almost all circumstances that does not mean working for the government so if you have a talent for electronics if you have a talent for coding if you have a talent for working with blockchain then you're probably not going to end up in the fbi nsa etc indeed right You know the government jobs don't tend to attract the most competent folks because most competent folks are gonna make more money. They know that there's plenty to be had in the The private sector. So why would they go to the public exactly the report co authored by while all these people was extensively written as a defensive bitcoin a response to growing concerns about the illicit finance implications of the crypto currency ecosystem published by the recently formed crypto council for innovation led by coin based on square among others. The report concluded that criminal use of bitcoin is significantly overstated rather than being the currency of choice for criminals. It can be used to catch them. Put simply blockchain. Analysis is a highly effective crimefighting intelligence gathering tool The report read the reason. The technology bitcoin runs on the blockchain means all transactions are logged on a public decentralized immutable ledger. And this is true. And it's something you need to know when you're fiddling around the crypto currency fun the silk road or some dark web website buying laws rockets and. Rpg's.

"Sean connery and the gun. Barrel iraqi jet pack a fake funeral. James bond punching a woman bonds french connection cryptic latin inscriptions. That's on a chapel wall water cannons shooting the bad guys from the aston martin db five and of course a fight. These are some of the things will examine as we look into the pre title sequence in the one thousand nine hundred sixty five james bond. Movie thunderball hi. This is dan sylvestry. Tom izzo and spy movie navigator dot com. Please join us as we're cracking the code of the pre title sequence in thunderball. So let's go. We see for the first time in the gun barrel. It's not bob. Simmons the stunt guy. It's sean connery goldfinger. It's fun and from this point on. We are actually going to see bond in the pre title sequences in the gun barrel and not a stunt man one a concept they needed to change the clip here as the aspect ratio for thunderball change from the previous movie so they couldn't reuse the clip that they had from the prior movies. One thing we haven't mentioned yet in our pre title sequence podcast series the origins of the gun barrel. We have mentioned the prato secrets in the nineteen. Thirty four million chrome passion in an earlier podcast. But we haven't yet talked about the ending to the nineteen th remove eight the great train robbery which ends with a gunman pointing the gun. View and firing. Some people think stain also influenced the golden barrel sequences that these things were around decayed and decades before bond was even written. So that's kind of cool and it actually is and then when you hear about how it was made it sound like it might have been in the back. Somebody's mind but when morris bender put that together he was just playing around and said. Hey if i shoot through this gun. Barrel i can do this. Pretty cool stuff. We had mentioned the pre tuchel secrets in the nineteen thirty four movie crummy that passion in an earlier podcast. We've seen in the first three. James bond ian production movies two circles that cross the screen and by the way. I have always thought those were the double. Oh that's just my take on it. I don't know it looks like it should be the double o but you're in thunderball when the gun barrel ends the gun barrel finally more to the first seen in the pre title sequence it doesn't just fade out like it did in the other movies it actually shows us part of the first seen within the gun barrel. First time this has happened. So this is kinda neat. This is cool and a great addition to the series and the circle shows the initials here j. b. and as the camera pans backwards it shows. Jb's blazoned on a casket. What again for about twenty seconds. We must think this is james bond dead again. It's the fourth movie by anne productions and his dead again in the beginning they just love killing them off right at the beginning of the movie. Yeah we remember from russia with love. Of course it wasn't him. It turns out but wow i don't know this makes me queasy and i don't know what to do because bonds debt already and i'm thinking wait a minute. There's another twenty one movies. How can this be. We know that. Now we're back then back then you didn't know it so there are some advantage the being in the future but this makes me queasy. I got bonded out on. This makes me want to have a separate coffee. Because i gotta wake up here. 'cause bonds dead. I'm just too nervous. Hang on oh. Hey we find a delicious coffee for you.

Of course last two films been set at night giving a dangerous about ding atmosphere. This one feels more normal more inviting the viewer into a lot lighter feeling except it's a funeral the funeral the funeral with j. b. on it was really for jacques pouvoir who was specter number. Six who bond reveals murdered two of his colleagues. Now i'm wondering what is james bond doing at jack. Bu vars funeral it makes me wonder why a healthy. Why is he there. Now we don't offer killed to double o. agents or colleagues. Perhaps from the cia or the french bureau. Those french contact who's credited as mademoiselle the port says at least you've been saved.

Framework's Nirav Patel on Reinventing the Laptop
"My guest today is europe patel. He is the ceo and founder of framework a startup that is looking to reinvent the laptop by allowing consumers to choose different components an upgrade them instead of having to throw the whole device as it gets a bit older. Thank you so much for being my guest today to chat with you so Tell me tell me what inspired you to start framework. Sure yes so you know after a decade and consumer electronics at your apple for a few years a man oculus for the last seven years i got to see. Basically the consumer electronics industry from end to add and just saw an enormous amount of waste and inefficiency just felt like an industry that was kind of broken from end to add except for the big platform owners. Like the you know the facebook. Some bugles naples of the world. It's a sort of like constant race to the bottom for companies that are in the space just out product for ultra low margins trying to make up in volume and there's for consumers is that we've got these products that are just not designed to last their affectively designed to work for some period of time and that we're out of breakdown or of date and then you cycle back through by another one and the process repeats over and over again and of course the end result of all that is just electric waste piling up everywhere and so just like for years of in thinking. That can't possibly be that industry. This important has to operate in such a broken model or must be a better way and so you came upon this erm concept of allowing purchasers to upgrade different components to offer different components really going far beyond the customized to order process that we have today from some of the leading vendors. Could you tell me a bit about the first product that your looking to bring to market and what some of the design goals were and what some of the module options are going to look like. Sure definitely so. I actually got one here. That says after reproductions is not data final version. Bits effectively act completing certainly complete enough to show off the features and functionality. Arrogancy core part of the framework laptop. Is that from five feet away. It looks and feels and behaves like a normal notebook. We sort of took that as like the core sort of table. Stakes of the product is of one half a thin light performance Half inch notebook that within those constraints is as repairable. Upgradable has cut in customizable as as can be and the idea there. It was really that we don't want it to be the slight challenging trade off or you have this great long-lasting product but it looks crazy in bulky at her stuff you know hanging off the bed we wanted. The you know the ninety nine percent of the time but using the product as a normal notebook to be that familiar. Great experience in that one percent of the time where you need to replace your battery or at an upgrade or formats for that to the not. Just possible that easy to do so you can see. Some of the differentiated functionality built in is from customization perspective. You can see that the ports instead of being sort of locked into places you typically find in a notebook. Fine but any factor. We've built our expansion card system. Where on both sides. The notebook there are few expansion court bay's at order time consumer gets to choose exactly what they want and it seemed like till the obvious thing to us that every person has a different set of needs when it comes to what devices they wanna plug into their he see. So why is that. We all have to have all donald adapters. Why not just make the no but flexible to accommodate what people actually want and so building the system. We've got usb a usb c display hdmi. Mike risky we have high speed expansion as for expansion. And we're just gonna continue to add new cards and also opened up the bring in third parties to make the wrong carts. It's funny as you talk about. Some of these options reminds me of some of the days of the pcm. Cia or and there were so many options for adding adding capabilities to pc's. That's where we saw some of the first wi fi cards and there were Ethernet storage There were there. Were all of these These options and we gave away a little bit of that. I think when that That slot a disappeared so any thoughts on the kind of a third party modules that you are expecting to see come to the platform. You've gotten a since announcing product publicly. last week we've got a ton of inbound interest from folks with You know their own applications that near the nice thing about this is that developing a card is relatively straightforward for you know a company making consumer electronics products or even a hobbyist individuals. Be able to do and so you know we. We want to see cards where someone has. Some specific need builds. You know hundreds of something in fines. The hundred people out there in the world who get super excited about that one. Have that built into their laptop. We really expect to seal a pretty massive proliferation of not. Just you know these really high running parts like that. You know like video output like an age. Gm i also really each things like microcontrollers data acquisition cards. Or you know high end audio output. That really enabled things that just haven't been available inside of a note. We're actually offering this. Not just as a pre-built system which you unbox are buying up. You get your pc like you would any other one but also has a kit. Modules you can customize switch deeper level and then actually assembly yourself and lo whatever. Osu like onto it just stop. You mentioned the diy option. Of course. it's still possible today to go out and build your own. Pc and pick your own video card and processor case and and all that but it can be a bit daunting for people who aren't comfortable getting inside of a box and hooking up all of these wires so it's cool to see that the framework computer can rekindle some of that excitement even though as you say to reach a broader audience. It's really going to have to support a lot of these more mainstream options as well definitely. So we've designed this thing to really be as easy as possible service like shut us down and actually opened enough in chase on the inside. But there's just exposed fasteners on on ship with a screwdriver. Inbox the does everything that you need to be able to place an audit of small tool and then it's a rather simple effort up know popping. Open the cover and getting inci and keyboard replacement super easy offering a range of languages. And then as you get inside actually every model miss thing is clearly labeled with what it is and that takes you into repair guide for it as well as a place. You can order a replacement part upgrade art so battery ran storage. Even the entire main board can be taken out or place and we've got a simple easy to follow guides for all these and that's fantastic so it's it's almost kind of an educational tool as well for people to learn more about what's going on inside their their laptop clearly. Sustainability is one of the goals of of the product if you do have any estimates or say if framework is able to affect this kind of change in the marketplace what the impact might be in terms of eliminating or reducing waste in the pc laptop business. Yeah definitely so in general. Our goal is to enable people to use the product for as twice twice as long as they would normally use a notebook ammon and actually that is that we want those be happy ears when someone buys note but they might get like a couple of years battery lights grade and their keyboards working perfectly Function and denison the thing and then you know after that. Battery's wearing out you. Maybe you've got like you know your w he is kind of key in your unit you gotta crack in screen or something like that and you know you suffer through it for a while. But with the framework laptop. We really want people to have happy productive years with the product in a meeting new battery or need more storage space or they want more performance that they're able to just get the piece of the product that what some get back to that good work state and keep going on that alone that extension of the longevity. You know is a substantial reduction. Environmental impact is by meeting to create less new full

We should always be volving to improve our policies training and accountability now new standards and procedures announced by cpi de chief david brown and mayor lightfoot required higher ranking command staff to sign off on requests for a warrant before it is brought to a state's turning judge considerations and plans must be made if vulnerable people. Mike children may be present than what a search is actually executed. A female officer must be present. Police must wear in activate body cameras. Lieutenant must also be on site and responsible for officers behavior the plan upfront spells out. What type of behavior is expected. All department members will treat all persons with courtesy and dignity which is inherently do every person and will act speak and conduct themselves in a courteous respectful and professional manner. And then it goes on from there. This is common sense but this is now enshrine in the actual policy. New policy does still allow for so called. No knock warrants but limited circumstances like when he life is in danger a fourth amendment allows for that to happen but only in certain circumstances where there's an establishment that evidence of a crime will be found in a particular location on no matter. How you slice it. It is an intrusion and so making sure that we get the facts details right and that there is ownership at the highest levels of c pd. It's critically important and please do get things wrong if there's bad evidence or something. The situation like what happened to young wrong raid. That has to be investigated. That's another safeguard that i believe. Personally it's critically important that the judge be notified that there was a one raid asked whether he's concerned that a standards click police in peril in potentially dangerous situations. Your brown responded. The real question you're asking is if treating someone with respect gets in the way of doing our job and the answer is no so following these policies and procedures with an emphasis on. Everyone deserves a measure of respect actually enhances our ability to do our job and create an environment of trust in the community. Which again is a force. Multiplier beanie effective at reducing. Cra in an email the president of the chicago fraternal order of police said that you had plenty of reaction to these new standards but he did not immediately. Follow up an email with specifics. The proposal did get the non from alderman. Chris taliaferro is head of the city council's public safety committee and also a former cia so these reforms that the mayor is announcing today will help bring about true accountability true responsibility but in a statement. Young's attorney says the proposal falls woefully short of the types of reforms that the citizens of chicago require to feel secure in their homes from these violent and often wrongful rates if the mayor is truly serious about reform statement says she'll get signed. An ordinance announced last week by a handful of black alderman also has the backing of progressive groups like lack lives matter and united working families and that plan does no knock. Warrants also expressly prohibits officers from pointing guns toward children and there is time for young the coalition of group. She's aligned with and really anybody else who wants to have their opinion made known about us to do social is going to have a fifteen day public comment period before these standards go into effect. It's a short period of time. Fifteen days and so encourage a france. You let's use social media Not just for passing around jokes and having a good time. Let's use this to improve our city.
Biden To Allow Some Separated Migrant Families To Reunite
"A new bite administration policy to allow Children who remain in the U. S s custody after being separated from their parents of the border to reunite with their parents in the United States or in their country of origin. Suzanne Potter reports. Under President Donald Trump. Parents were deported without their Children and hundreds of kids remain in U. S care. Debra Weinstein, with the coalition on Human needs, says the separations harmed Children and amounted to a shocking moral failure. What the Trump administration did enforcing Children and families apart was unspeakably cool, and it was contrary to our moral code into the rule of law. The Biden administration is taking unnecessary and inhumane step. Weinstein says the government should consider restitution and look at giving the family's a pathway to citizenship. It is unclear if families that already have been reunited abroad will be allowed to come to the US while they pursue their claims of asylum. Opponents of the change say it will encourage a new surge of asylum seekers at the border, says CIA. Alvarado is Nevada state director for the nonprofit Mi Familia. Time, she says. This is an important win for the immigrant community. I'm a mother and a month on immigrant. Just the thought of it to be separated from my daughter. It's terrifying. I think they deserve to have an opportunity to be here to heal to receive treatment for the traumas to be hurt. The Department of Homeland Security is expected to release more details of the policy in the coming weeks. The UNLV immigration clinic recently helped a family regained custody of a child.

Gathering Data for Zero Trust
"So today's topic is trust or beyond corporal. Max what are these terms. What is zero trust what is beyond corp. So this goes back about twelve years or so when google had two fundamental reimagining of how we do security inside our company and the effort was called beyond corp because it was an effort to move beyond a corporate network. We had to go past the idea that you're either inside the corporate network and thus you can get access to the things and we presume that you are safe or you're outside and have no access at all like when you're working from home or from starbucks and we realized this was a problem for a host of different reasons as we started changing things more recently. Zero trust has become the meam the term and these efforts. And it really just means. I don't implicitly. Trust my network. And i'm a big fan of beyond corp a big fan of zero trust. I do think they both get thrown around broadly and can be very confusing when people often will say them but mean different things so it's great to define our terms here and dig into it a little bit so this is really the move away from enterprises being a crunchy exterior with soft. Julian said yes. No more eminem's more eggs is about abandoning perimeter security. It's about contextual access. It's about testing each and every time. Somebody tries to get to a resource whether that's a website. A database of the vm. And checking do. I actually trust max enough to let him in right now. I think the broad definition is something risk because frankly experience i've encountered people who say trust means you can trust anything and frankly this is false because you obviously need to trust the cia system itself you have to trust identity to trust endpoint data. So let's go have a discussion. About what else must be used announcement to trust it for zero trisystem to build a chain of trust completely and with beyond corp in the way we've decided to implement zero trusted google. You do have to start somewhere so often. That means you're starting with a trust in some of the information you have about your people because you've assembled it yourself having hired them and some information that you have about their computers which are getting from agents a frequent challenge. I get there is. What if the agent gets compromised. Then what do i trust. You don't wanna place all your trust in just one agent or one data source but what we do is gathering information about the devices that employees are using and we have information already about the employees. Right i know max. He's in new york. He works in engineering. And so that gives me a way to design a system that can grant or deny access based on that data. And i trust that data because i know where it came from. I know how i got it. And i have other data sources to corroborate it so that useful to talk about the root of trust in a system like this. What's the real root of trust. What must be trusted. Otherwise the whole thing collapses. I mean you trust it. I'm not an alien and human form feeding information to my overlords sin orbit the moon. But you have to trust some level of egypt based data about your devices right. I'm not in everybody's house right now as we work from home checking on their computer and a half to trust something that i'm getting back where the vets from crumbs verification whether it's from crowd strike or whatever it is i need that device identity and device meta data and i have to trust my. Hr system right hover tracking all these people and the groupings. Tim says he's in product management Really trust that that's true. I mean i could go check but if someone had access to the way we track. Employees had that had been compromised. that's definitely going to derail miser. Trust system for sure this was substantially line identities being accurate and correct so that means probably multi factor indications neither the actual identity should be attached to the right people and peoples would be grouped in the right way to me. This is probably the second big part of what i would call. Route of trust. Trust is identity not just device date exactly and the reason. I don't just trust tim to say who he is is that he's also antiquated with a strong second factor. So that it's very hard for someone to spoof or fish or otherwise impersonate his identity. And that's an important part of the whole chain of trust in the way beyond corp. Zero trust implementations should work. Sounds like we really got three pieces of trust here not zero trust. We've got identity trust. We've got multi factor trust and we've got device station trust so not zero trust. Yeah and i think identity is something i would maybe break out into a couple pieces. Is this actually max or someone pretending to be him. And then there's is max in the right groupings right. Did he get the right entitlements that he inherited by the factor of being in cloud or being an engineer under being developer relations. So yes and. I think it's good to point out the second factor that i am definitely trusting the strong authentication of choice. And without that this whole system falls apart if you have weak or officiapl authentication mechanisms. Please don't even try to zero trust. You have bigger fish to fry and you need to do it right now.

In the fifties and early sixties gottlieb headed the secret. Cia program m. k. ultra which conducted experiments. To see of lsd and other drugs could be weaponized as a form of mind control godly. Also the cia as chief chemist creating poisons and unusual ways of surreptitiously administering them. Should they be needed to kill enemies including world leaders. Anti headed the program that created high tech gadgets for spies. Now what are the uses gottlieb envisioned for lsd. Was you could slip into an unfriendly. World leader and their behavior would be so erratic and weird that they'd lose popularity or they'd be thrown out of office because they would appear to not be able to function normally anymore you're right so godly was the chief. Cia chemist in that capacity. He was also the chief poison maker so he made the poisons to kill joanne lie. Fidel castro patrice lumumba. But he wasn't only involved in making poisons to kill people he was also interested in making toxins that would affect their behavior in various ways He made a list of the ways. You thought he thought drugs could be used to affect behavior. Could you find a drug that would alter personality structure in a way that would allow the operator to take control of another person's behavior could you produce shock and confusion or physical disablement. At one point. He came up with the idea of using a spray. Can full of lsd to pollute. The studio in which feed l. castro was going to give a radio speech then. Presumably castro would become disoriented. And as you say lose popularity and fall from power. This is the level of bizarre plots. The he became involved with when he was hired as part of a separate aspect of his job besides k. Ultra to be the person who devised toxins and psychoactive substances to be used in covert operations by seattle officers around the world. So this is just a little sidebar. That i found very interesting as somebody who listens to a lot of jazz. The people who sidney gottlieb hired included george hunter white who directed a lot..

"So I'm husband after I left. Fbi Okay yes. Why did you choose to leave the FBI to say that I was sexually harassed would be in understatements? Can you share a little bit about that? Yes so I think it really starts. Adamy asked the Letter writing process that had to do And so one of the first things you do. They have like different. Weeks have different trading sections to them and the first thing you do is interview you learn how to interview subjects or victims And so they asked where students though. I were assumed that I had were many times at the many people that no one ever seems to have like a problem with it was pulled aside afterwards and told that my soups made my interview instructive. Different instructors for different things Quote uncomfortable I'm guessing that means Horny. I'm not one hundred dollars inch and it was just like an Ann Taylor clip suit. What was it? I think it was from Nordstrom? Yeah it was I mean look I do tend to. I like high fashion. That's true but I'm never somewhat inappropriate in my body ever if I remember being a really cute black suits with a jacket. And he's kind of red pinstripes. Mary feat that went through and so they asked that. I write him a letter apologizing for how I looked in the suit and so I go through different versions of like the letter I wanted to write and then the letter ultimately right row. Is You know an apology letter until I drove down to a Walmart. Which is that was the closest thing in Quantico and I bought suits I think at the time it was like a two or four and I bought seats in Twelve and it was really funny because my mom at recently had to go through old pictures some media of my graduation from FBI Academy and I have a picture myself in a leading by my parents in the crotch. Suit is literally two my shins. My mom is sorry. That was one instance. Yeah I thought maybe you know. Stay at the academy kind of ride out all this stuff and maybe things will get better in my office And they definitely did not so you get into that in the book to. Oh Yes yes. Oh that's good and then as far as that horizon was ever like you know like a physical thing of like you know. Do this and this will happen for you or anything like that. No never no. I don't remember anything like that I do remember hearing that my boss had said I make a good agent on my knees under his desk. Yeah and I think that was sort of the straw that broke the camel's back for me My parents you know. Their baby boomers were born in the forties. And they've sort of been which I appreciate it. We'll just get through. We're not gonNA fight your battles for you makes you stronger but I remember going home and tell him my dad that comment and he was like. Where can we find in a jury? That was the first time that he flew off the handle right. And so what did you do? That was just your reason to lease or did you ever finally it. I did file complaints For the time being why they're like fleshing out my complaint. Their solution to the problem was to move to an office about three hours away. And that's not I should not have upper my whole life for like you need to figure out a different solution. And they wouldn't and so. I laughed and I would like to tell you that like things have changed but I was contacted by a group about seventeen women last year. Who launched a class action lawsuit against the FBI for Bender Discrimination? So unfortunately it hasn't changed or maybe with them and your book. It will change people aware so your husband wants his he do. He's an orthodontist. Okay your teeth. Look Nice and I'm watching you on zoom now like one of my questions that I had is it a good salary. Cia and FBI. I mean pins rightly like the level I entered in at its government scale right so like when I entered in entry bat time with the scale of a gs one to like fifteen. So I answered in a believe in AIDS address. Aides 'em when I left I was GS twelve. Which is like pre management. So I do remember Not Salary remember my permit with my friend who I'm still friends with and US sitting there in wikileaks I've ourselves like. Hey we just like came back from a war zone where like we could have died. Mccain even afford to go to the movies right now you just like being kind of crabby about that now at the FBI pay was a little bit better because you get with Cologne horsemen hazard. Pay because you you carry a gun so it was a little better there so you had gun training like an and some physical training right Fbi as far as like how to like. Throw someone over your shoulder at Quantico would have to pass P. T. tests for different times while you were there and then you have obviously a ton of Tana gun training And then you have you know. He enhanced combat training and things like that. So do you still own a gun today? Like in your home I do not. I don't because I have a four and a half year old right which I think is great. I've never what's interesting about my dad is We never had a gun in our house. He never wanted to get in the house for the reason where he's like that guy is going to be used on someone in this house if we have this either someone's GonNa come in and steal it or someone within our household is going to crazy news it and you know it's just it's interesting you.

Little Arthur fifty makes there's fans that was Felix. That CLIP IS TRAP. House added most appealing. It's funny smart and sharp. They're mocking a rival for his style and his pretension clearly satire. But this next part where they talk about. Buddha judge being in the CIA was not satire. So when you begin to assemble these facts are like go down these various rabbit holes or look at the bigger picture you will never ever get and this is what Tom O'Neil said to us. That's very important you will never ever ever get to a point of capital. T. Journalistic Truth. That can be published in the New York Times. Oh It's Not New York Times truth. What would their strict definitions of things that are true? Then Virgil issued this disclaimer. Oh and by the way very very quickly anyone out there who's a reporter for New York magazine Politico The New Yorker The New York Times watching anything like that. This is off the record. Okay so is it a joke. Is it not a joke? It is a joke because people laughed. And of course you can't go off the record on a publicly available podcast but it shows. Chapo knows what they're doing. They understand the uses and purposes of propaganda and they also know what they're about to do in their extremely influential and popular podcast. There are about to smear Bernie Sanders biggest rival to date with a bat. Shit insane conspiracy theory so here is Chapel member Matt Christmas and making the case that Pete Buddha j.j active CIA asset he began by signing two thousand eight New York Times. Op Ed. That Buddha Jude wrote about Somaliland the enclave of Somalia that was seeking independence at the same time that the US government was making inroads to attempt to establish military bases there with the connivance of the local leadership. Pete British and his friend from Harvard his friend from Harvard. A guy whose name is oh could Lord Nathaniel Meyers. This is a guy who works for the US aid for International Development Organization which has been for forty years a known CIA FRONT USA is actually the largest government sponsored agency in the world half of all US foreign aid flows through the guys continue to trace Buddha judges career then he joins naval intelligence and goes Afghanistan. The navy famously necessary to get in the landlocked Afghanistan. Navy's really good at mountain guessing where he has admitted his books that he spent time in. Cia SAFE HOUSES. A Guy who has glowing portrait of this guy talked about how in his study. He has maps of mineral resources of Afghanistan. Airmiles fucking house. He's a he's a cartography. Bus loves maps. He's a dampener. So this is the guy who's entire career before he becomes mayor is pure intelligence. Absolutely there is not a single thing he did it. He's a little McKinsey or with the military that does not indicate that he was doing at the very least like high end drifting McKinley. Shit or at the worst like project Phoenix like targeted assassinations. Lgbtq CIA. Joke that someone else's show you know project. Phoenix was the bad program during the Vietnam War. That was credited if you WANNA use that word with killing tens of thousands of Viet Cong sympathizers many if not most of them neutral civilians not to be fair to Chapo killing tens of thousands of innocent Vietnamese or a similar venture was at the upper bounds of what they say that Pete booted was doing right before being elected mayor of South Bend Indiana and they described his morality this way and then he and then he comes mayor of South Bend where he becomes. The most media savvy most media connected guy in this piss ant town of one hundred thousand people where his job is basically just to ethnically cleanse the black people out of the neighborhood so they could be gentrified by the way how this small town mayor become a presidential candidate. Perhaps I mean the way I figured is that maybe saw him like a lot of voters did and said. Ooh I like this guy like say I like how he says it his temperament and his story perhaps viewed and say that you know someone who did or find a plausible that. There's a reason why unreasonable person might like Buddha judge. No you're wrong it's not. It's so then he gets to run and as I said. He's running against one of the biggest fields. They've ever had governors senators every half of them. Just trying to run the Obama playbook all of them fall away and he's the last one left and he is the one that the media is willing to go to bat for and lie on behalf of after he stole Iowa so at this point. I suppose it's incumbent upon me to deny being a member of Project MOCKINGBIRD Mockingbird to catching fire guests. That's the updated program though denying being in the employ of the CIA is exactly what someone in the employee of the CIA would say. Well putting aside this unfalsifiable premise. Let us continue to do Langley's bidding as I play you. More of the unhinged conspiratorial ramblings of the number one Bernie Sanders podcast in America Co hosted by the New York Times bestselling authors and their pal amber alert frost by the way frost was a contributor to the Columbia Journalism Review. She wrote the ninth most popular article there last year the tone in that article was tailored to the CJ our audience not CIA see Jr Columbia Journalism Review for the Chapo audience. Frost took a different tone one embraced conspiracy but also told the true believers fueled by the truths that were revealed that they must not give away the game when trying to convince others to oppose Buddha. Judge is actually really important that we don't look Gracie Matt played it less close to the vest fucking bear. Pete is at the nexus of every black ops. Cia fucking thing in the last thirty fucking years so since he was eight. This is the point in their podcast where the hosts both embraced the depths of their theories and offered a fig-leaf of deniability using phrases. Like you can believe all of this. You believe none of it. The end result equals the same thing. Which is that you need to know. Powerful forces oppose Bernie Sanders. They advise the audience. On the best way to take this knowledge this special knowledge that they imparted and to use it when dealing with members of the public who might not be as informed as they are and I remember early on the show when we were making fun of Pete by calling him agent Pete or saying he's up and of course I was half kidding then am I have kidding now I will leave it to you. The audience to judge for yourself. This is some Glenn Beck. Alex Jones nine eleven truth or type technique right there. So ask yourself. Is The difference. That those conspiracies are wrong and the Buddha judges a CIA cat's paw right. Is that the difference or the difference that Pete Booed Aeges. Working BLACK OPS THEORY. Is that different from birtherism because one is in service of a bad outcome and the other fuels are righteous fire. I think it's a lot like birtherism in that. The crazy private inaccurate theory really inspires the congregation and they know when they interact with the public. Who Don't think like they do. They know how to put on a more plausible public face. Oh well no matter what you think about that. You have to really be concerned with his executive overreach with the DACA program. But privately they're going out there and saying this with such fervor because they know he was really born in Kenya the Chapo guys do say version of. Hey believe it. Or don't believe it but they definitely think that it's important enough to put out in their podcast. Which is listened to by one hundred to two hundred thousand listeners? Because they know that even if it's not true if their fellow sanders supporters believe. It's true. Then it's all to the good in. There is what I say is that allies ally and propaganda is propaganda. And that's why it's useful for me to surface this horse shit so we could say that it's horse shit. You WanNA say universal healthcare. That's a great idea. Just realized this. Okay maybe it is in a bag with worship if universal healthcare and Free. College are the right goals. What does it say that we have to use? Horsh it as a means to achieve these goals. Does it say? You can't have anything good unless you embrace insane fictions to get there. I'm trying to be fair to Bernie Sanders himself. The person the candidate he never said any of this. There's no evidence he believes it again. The part about there being no evidence. I think that's important. And also every good leader has some bonkers followers or followers who spout bonkers notions and every minute but Bernie Sanders. The candidacy is premised on a political revolution. The coming revolution. So if you throw in with him maybe you should ask yourself. How many of your fellow revolutionaries will be motivated by beliefs like this by thinking like this or even by tactics like pretending to believe theories like this or throwing lies out there just in case they inspire others who they can use to achieve. What they say is a righteous goal. Anyway that's the update about what's going on over there. Chapa thought you should know. And that's it for today show. Priscilla lobby is the associate producer of the jets. She's working out the theory that lives. Warren is Massad Massad to the core Daniel. Schrader produces the gist.

And that's what they see happening in Nicaragua if we abandoned the contras and they also they the United States government also hilariously found this group to act sort of the figurehead spokesman for the CONTRAS. Even though they have very little actual association with the Contra some of the people some of the people at your your friend of the seven people who would present a attractive image of the contras because the contras were understood to be made up of a lot of different factions but among them were former national guards. Men who had served under Somoza who is this brutal rightwing dictator whom the US supported until the end and so a lot of his people on of his guys with guns goons. Yeah they continue to support him. Well they want the power back and so these people ceased as made up a large percentage of the of the Contra forces. And you know I think it was understood that that was not a winning brand start to use a contemporary term and so they wanted to organize the seven member board of people who could plausibly say. They weren't extremists that they certainly weren't favor of torture or cities. And so so the board as you say it was supposed to be the face of this organization but it's not like these were completely you know unaffiliated people. They're they're they're they're curious mantra and so we we interviewed one of the members of the directorate Who quit at a certain point because he felt disenchanted with it? He was in Nicaragua Guy who had moved to Miami and had gotten sort of interested in the political turmoil. Back home didn't support the Sandinistas thought they were too extreme. You got recruited by the CIA. He believes to sort of serve as one of the seven point. He you know he was provoked into making apologies for the things. The contras were doing. He was called in the middle of the night to say listen. You've got to go on the radio and say that it was us that you know laid those bombs in the Nicaraguan harbor. We can't let anyone know that it was anything to do with the CIA. Which of course it was and that eventually came out yes. It came out during a debate. Didn't it it well? It came up before that but yes it was brought up during the during the debate. So the arms-for-hostages. Its own scandal. If people were to find out about it then it becomes arms for money. Is that what happens? Well I mean there was always money. I think what you're referring to. I think is that there was their profits being made off the arm. Sales and those profits at a certain point started being funneled by Oliver North and some of his associates into the Contra War and this is the hyphen or the Dash. I have a friend. Who's very upset with me for referring to hyphen is not well. Known Scandal Hyphen over. 'em Dash and Dash Not Dash and Dash on God and the hyphen or Dash. Is the money. The thing that connects these two otherwise unrelated operations will one thing is that they're being run by the same people. Which makes it possible for the money to intermingle to then have profits from the arm. Sales being used by guns for the contras. Yeah why don't they just use all their crack profits that no but this is true. The people who study the CIA or study secret organizations if they want to do surreptitiously technically illegal. Things you have to be funded somehow. And that's usually via illegal funding methods. So here's a chronicle history of the CIA working say mafia factions because they needed the money for other things. Well there is the way to get covert operations funded approved and make them legal. There's a law that says that a president can order a covert action as long as signs. A piece of paper called a presidential finding in advance and explains what it is what the rationale is and commits to briefing. Congress on it like not all of Congress but like select you know the Intel Committee. Yeah and there was a finding a involvement in Nicaragua than the minimum the CIA couldn't no longer be serving that purpose with regard to the arm sales and other covert operation. One of the big problems that the Reagan administration faced. Once everything's started coming out was the first to arms shipments that the engaged the Iranians on. We're not covered by presidential. Finding there was a finding signed after the fact. Yeah which the Reagan folks wanted to say was retroactive But in any event there was no briefing of Congress. You know yes. He signed the piece of paper. But I would say the important part of the law would be that there's oversight from Congress which they declined to do on the theory that well it says in a timely manner you know who's to say timely means before it happened insurance to say you know a week as opposed to a year so that was that was sort of a question like short of covert operations. Have to be secrets. That doesn't necessarily mean they need to be funded illegally. Yeah we're in. Fact is the host of fiasco the second season of which is available on that Luminary Service about the Iran Contra affair. Thanks so much thank like I have cats. They're a joy of my life. But you know what thing that people don't like is associated with cats smelly leanness believe the. Sitcom friends spoke of this. And it's weird thing about smelly nece. It's just means a thing that smells and yet it's a negative. It's a pejorative. I guess we don't like things that smell cats can smell especially if the litterbox is not properly lined with the right kitty litter and that is where Armand Hammer clump and seal comes in it.

It's a phenomenon it's called Chapo Trap House. It's currently the sixteenth ranked news podcast and I tunes which has three ahead of the BBC. Unfortunately behind the verdict with Ted Cruz guilty. The Chapo Trap House guys have written a New York Times bestseller that each have over one hundred thousand followers on twitter and this is the big one. They've been on the gist begging pedialyte after a night of hard-drinking their producer. Chris is an old slate employees. Who I like very much a met. The four million Chapo guys at the Iowa State Fair. They were funny could not take them up on their offer of a night of drinking. I listen to the show because I like hearing their good arguments from a strong socialist point of view. They also present the very harshest critiques of more MODERATE POLITICIANS THAN BERNIE SANDERS. Which is say. I think every other politician in America they are funny and their politics are really influential as ardent Bernie supporters. They are scathing in their attacks on his rivals. They look at Elizabeth. Warren like a Jew looks at a Jew for Jesus. Now if you don't know this little spat and you might say well. Isn't that almost a Jew but to an actual Jew Jews for Jesus are the worst every once in a while actually pretty frequently chapo goes full conspiracy mode and sometimes it's embarrassing and other times like this recent show. It's bordering on the dangerous at the very least. It's an a factual disregard for documental truth. And it shows that the far left is every bit as eager to get high off the paint fumes of Innuendo and suggestion in their last posted. Show Chapo when full bore into an area? They've tiptoed around in the past the notion that Pete. Buddha judge is an agent for the CIA so before they launched into their full diatribe complete with knowing winks and the technique of paralegal switches. I'm not saying I'm just saying they pant or a little bit to the live crowd and New Hampshire by putting down and then they analyze the results from Iowa. Inaccurately as it happens. Here's will prevail in Iowa Bernie won the Iowa Caucus. We're not bullshitting you. We're not trolling you. We're not saying that hype up confidence and support. We're telling you objectively Bernie. Sanders won the. I will call decisively. Yes then they buttress their incorrect assertion. That Bernie won.

"Have you read the report. And what do you think. And he said I've read it and now I don't know what the facts are. It's very disturbing. You know. It sounds ZIP. He's echoing. I'm with you your report. Meant something and I'm guessing. Senators were thinking. Maybe John Brennan's the guy who can make CIA reckon with the use of torture. Of course he wasn't. I think it bears repeating what happened as you were investigating this for the Senate what the CIA did on domestic mastic soil to the investigator from the very body set up to oversee the CIA under a democratic administration with a Democratic nominee of director so caroline rolling crafts is nominated to be the general counsel the CIA during that nomination hearing a real mind. Mark Udall senator from Colorado acknowledges acknowledges for the first time publicly about this internal. CIA review called the Panetta Review. Senator Udall opened up his statement. This way saying the CIA as is leaking information in newspapers saying that the Senate report is factually inaccurate. It's never going to be released. Because of all the factual errors and he says. I don't think that's true true because hey I've gone through the records I've gone through the documents but also I've seen your internal review and it appears this review which which was initiated by former director. Panetta is consistent with intelligent committee's report but amazingly it conflicts with the official CIA response response to the committee's report in if this is true it raises fundamental questions. About why a review the conducted internally years ago and never are provided to. The committee is so different from the sea is formal written response to the committee study. I think you can. You can see the disconnect there and it sent shockwaves through the agency that we had this internal review see I had conducted and we knew what they had found the CIA freaks out and they decide to go through through the Senate's computers to find out. How many versions of this document existed? They went through our emails. There's evidence that they entered the room. This is spying on Americans and the argument is well. We had to protect our computer system. Will this was the Senate computer system. Eventually the inspector general finds out about this the sky's own internal watchdog finds out about it and within. I WanNa say it's within twenty four hours. They make a criminal referral to the Department of Justice saying we believe the CIA. I has violated the law by searching these computers and going into computers. Unlawfully this is response is to make a criminal them over for all against the Senate staff saying Oh no it's not us who broke the law. It's the Senate staff and basically accused us of hacking into the CIA has computers to obtain this Panetta Review and they maintain this is perhaps the most laughable argument John Brennan maintains that we were never authorized authorized to have that document it was a draft document. We requested every document in the sea is possession related the detention interrogation program. What could be more relevant? Haven't to a Senate investigation. Then the sea is own internal investigation into the same program. Second argument is that it's a draft document so therefore we should have it. You may remember. We were talking earlier about the briefings that were scheduled for the president. One of the most effective tools for understanding what was going on was to see one document. Two hundred drafts of that document. How it changed right Bush was going to be told about the waterboard? They'd limited that. I mean of those six point three million pages maybe half or more where draft draft documents. And let's not forget. What dependent review is? It's a damning argument against the size torture program that identifies it as ineffective that identify. CIA officers misleading the Bush administration. That's what they're trying to suppress. What's it like for you when you see John Brennan on TV as a commentator about about the lawlessness of the trump administration? You know people are both good and bad and make good decisions and bad decisions. So that's one there but I'm appalled at John Brennan Mike Morale Porter Goss any of these individuals. Phil Mudd are on television. Talking about the intelligence agence community and people view them Michael Hayden right people view them as upstanding citizens who we can trust. There's an entire pedic's to the executive summary. The report of Michael Hayden have his testimony to the committee on the left hand. Side is what he says on the right hand side is the truth when Michael Hayden is told this is a really important part of the Senate report when he is told. We've got a problem. We've told the Department of Justice the White House and Congress that we've never had more than one hundred detainees. Somebody comes to Michael. Hayden says. Listen we found more. There's at least one hundred twelve probably a ton more than that. What should we do? Michael Hayden says we've always had less than one hundred detainees. Pick a date when this program began. We've always had less Michael Hayden's on television as it does an anti-trump or whatever he's a darling. Erling of these These television stations as if he is a guy that with integrity I do believe integrity is a scarce resource and when you fail to show integrity. There is some accountability accountability in that. Accountability is sorry. Can't be commentator on television anymore as someone who provides truthful answers to the American people unless you explain what was happening back then and none of them have confronted allies. They've told the American people or the President Department justice or Congress. Is it your sense that the best way to prevent this this from happening again would have been to hold those who were directing it and carrying it out accountable including through criminal prosecution Russian under threat of imprisonment. I think people should have lost their jobs at the very least. Maybe you're not nominated to be director but maybe you're now in charge of the parking rush to CIA right. There needs to be some form of accountability. And let me be clear. This is a massive CIA problem. But I think it's also a massive societal program. The same Senate Intelligence Committee Committee that produced this report that fought tooth and nail to get it released and said this must never happen again. The same Senate Intelligence Committee that did that confirmed confirmed Gina Hospital director. Who knows better about this program then that committee and they went ahead and confirmed genus? Bill to me that's inexcusable. I'm no longer in the Senate so I can say that. But the fact that you'd have members who voted for that report who knew the details and then years later say okay. You've said you'll never do it again. What do you mean you'll never duty? It was found to be ineffective unlawful. And that you lied to the White House Department Justin Congress about it. Of course you're never going to do it again. Danny Jones. I WanNa just as as a person in this country I want to thank you for not giving up and for everything that you did and I hope one day that we all can read those seven thousand pages that you and your colleagues worked so hard to produce so that the truth would be known.

Share of the intelligence committees on both sides on the issue of winded Bush. No and you know. When did Cheney no and now you're talking about Addington being misled? Do you know no that. It's not that they're just smarter than you that they didn't put the stuff on paper. Look these guys. Were were masters at their craft in a lot of ways to is it possible that Cheney was actually very involved and was like listen. None of this goes on any paper while we were doing this investigation. One of the stories from the agency he was. Hey we are just following orders. Right this is an art program and we asked the agency if if this is the case find us the record somewhere. where's the email now? There's not even an email discussion among people saying we were with Cheney today and he told us we have to do this it does not exist. We asked for it. It was in the sea is interest to produce it because that was part of their narrative which is just following orders with the records. Indicate is that this was a CIA program. Voice did upon the bush-cheney White House not the other way round named the figures who were running this program. All that is largely redacted. What is the role of Jose? Rodriguez for those aid. Regas was the head of the counterterrorism center. He is in the report. He played a major role his chief of staff was now the currency. I director Gina Hospital in November of two thousand five. The Senate voted to you. Basically look at all detained treatment across the US government. There had been rumors of abuse right. And the voters of course and that vote failed felt it was led by Senator Carl Levin from Michigan he thought it was really important understand what dod was doing and with the CIA was doing detainees the very next day EH. Jose Rodriguez and his chief staff. Send a cable to a offsite location to destroy the interrogation videotapes of Abu Zubaydah. Waited which were done And a man named Abdallah regime on a sheree. But you're done two thousand two and what's really important to know is after two thousand to the. CIA was actively actively seeking to destroy those tapes and they went to the CIA director at the time this Tenet and then it was Porter Goss and they said we want to get rid of these tapes. Both tenant and Gaza Says No. You can't do it. John Rizzo who was acting general counsel the CIA said. You cannot destroy these tapes. But I'll go to the White House and I'll ask them. I'll go to the Department of Justice and ask them and the message always came back. You cannot destroy these tapes so after that vote in the Senate. Jose Rodriguez asked his chief of staff to drive a cable. And just screw it. We're going to do what we want. And they sent a cable to this off site for destruction those tapes and what was unique about this cable is typically. I mean if you're in the office environment and you're you're announcing policy decision you have a two line to four or five people and then you're CC. Line is all the lawyers all the policy people. There's forty people in the email same thing with CIA cables in this case it was just too that detention site and it wasn't until a cable came back from the site that said the ninety plus videotapes of torture have been destroyed now. Those people seed everyone appropriate all the lawyers all the higher ups ups. And that's when the general counsel of the CIA learns that they're destroyed and they go crazy because they know the Bush Whitehouse and Department of Justice. Said you cannot destroy these tapes. So what are they do they cover it up until Mark Mazzetti of the New York Times writes a front page article in December of two thousand seven which says the CIA destroyed torture. Tapes launches our investigation of the Senate. It launches a criminal investigation by Michael Mukasey at the Department of Justice. This is the Bush Department of Justice. They launch a criminal probe of the CIS destruction tapes. Eventually they put a guy named John. Durham in charge of that. Durham's investigation goes all the way to August August. Two thousand twelve right just months before we submit are largely our final draft of the report. And they don't bring any criminal charges and they say they looked at ninety ninety nine detainees. Of course we found there was at least one hundred nineteen and what we are GonNa do is we're going to recommend that the CIA hold to individuals accountable. There's two people the a most culpable for destruction. These tapes and those people are Jose Rodriguez and Gina Hospital at the time. There's a man at the CIA named Mike like morale who becomes acting director. At one point he was also in charge of the CI's response to the Senate. He is tasked by the CIA director to create an Accountability Accountability Board for Gina. has-been Jose Rodriguez and Mike Morell said. I'm not going to set up an accountability board for Genus. Jose Rodriguez. I'm GonNa do this myself. And he takes. Jose Rodriguez out for a beer and describes how this is going to go down. Jose Rodriguez gets a letter in his file. Continues to work for the agency and Gina. Hospital is let off absolutely free win. According to the documents that you've that you reviewed winded the program. And the last detainee we have records for was a detaining named Mohammed Rahim in two thousand seven Muhammad Rahim team is captured and brought to CIA custody is entire time NCAA custody Mohammed Rahim produced zero zero intelligence reports. Not One. It's hard to imagine not getting one piece of intelligence and Mohammad Rahim went through multiple rounds of of these enhanced interrogation techniques so two weeks on nothing and then additional two weeks and they kept trying to theorize on ways they could get muhammed regime to talk using these torture tactics and eventually Mama team says you know you can kill me. I'm just not going to talk to you right and in fact I want you to kill me and at this point. It's two thousand seven. The agency says we should probably take a look at this program. This is the first time to see. I conducted a real internal review of the program and N.. Data side that basically. There's no evidence that these torture techniques worked and that there's a lot of evidence that they produced false answers and her basically ineffective active and they make a recommendation to the by the way these are. CIA officers senior officers. And they say we should use report building techniques because that seems like the most effective in our review of records and we should ask other. US government agencies how they interrogate people and we should go to our allies and friends and ask them. What do you find most effective when you detain someone? This is the end of the program the very last detainee and this is still under the Bush administration do you. Actually I find it plausible that Bush didn't know about this until September of two thousand six. What was April to them? Six sorry when he and when he got a briefing he expressed discomfort of detainees chained to the ceiling. Going to the bathroom on themselves. That's the quote and it freaks me out because they know chained chained to the ceiling going into bathrooms elves. That's the least we do but what we know is what the CIA knows right. This is six point. Three million records of his own records regardless of what Bush knows the themselves thought Bush did not know couple data points. We have memos that were written for Bush that was going to talk about waterboarding and techniques. We see all the drafts of the memo. First waterboarding taken out by the lawyers saying this not talk about that. And then we see the other terra Gatien techniques taken out of the next draft of the memo and then we see another memo written. which is we do really tough techniques? Were still harder than law enforcement. But they're legal. Don't don't worry and then the next decision is they'll be no briefing of the president. None of those drafts get to the president. Condoleeza Rice is told there will be no briefing George Tenant is interviewed by his own inspector general and tenant says he has never spoken to the president about this program porter. Goss says I have never never spoken to the President about this program. Now of course President Bush's book says that he did know about the Interrogation tactics and that he personally personally approved them. What's really interesting? Is John Rizzo. Who was the acting director? Then later wrote a book himself and he calls President Bush. A Real stand-up guy. And this it tells you everything you need to know about the CIA by the way and he says President Bush is a real stand up guy because he didn't know anything about what we were doing in that program and yet he took responsibility for it and he defended the agency. Barack Obama wins the election in two thousand eight and he names Leon Panetta Aneta as his first CIA director. What are the first moves Leon? Panetta makes well. It's clear at this point that there is going to be an expansive investigation of the size detention interrogation program. We the Senate Intelligence Committee had launched an investigation two thousand seven in the destruction tapes. Leon Panetta does what I think any director would do. He's new to this. He wasn't at the agency during the interrogation program. President Obama ends the program within days of coming into office and this Senate. Intelligence investigation is gearing up to be one of the largest investigations in the I ever and Leon Panetta doesn't want to be surprised. Christ so he sets up his own internal study group right. He does a parallel investigation into the documents that the Senate is receiving these six point. Three million pages of records Kurds. He sets up a parallel group of officers of highly decorated. Ci obsers to go through the same records to write a report for him on what the Senate might eight find. And what's important about the Panetta Review which we call this is it came largely to the same conclusions as the Senate investigation in some ways. It's far more harsh. As as I mentioned the Senate was very conservative but what we included in that report. We couldn't find multiple documents if we weren't one hundred percent. Sure the facts. It did not go in that seven thousand page report but but I always thought you know Panetta and the agency was smart they would have put out that review ahead of the Senate and said this program happened. We've learned lessons. This is what we're going to do to make sure it never happens again. And and I don't know what the Senate student over there but we gotta control of her own ship instead. They bury their internal report and they attack. Ours is being factually inaccurate. Describe the way that the Obama Administration treated you viewed your investigation. Did they help it. They hinder it first of all. Let's let's talk about the August. Two Thousand Fourteen speech by President Obama August twenty. Fourteen is when A redacted version of our report was provided back to the Senate for Release Ace and the White House believed that the Senate was just going to accept whatever they redacted and release it. Was That Day With the anticipation that the Senate would release ridiculously ridiculously blacked out and report. That Obama said we tortured some folks. We tortured some folks and a lot of people will remember that speech largely for that statement. But what people don't remember is the next few lines. which is you know I? It's important for us not to Feel too you sanctimonious. In retrospect about the tough job that those folks at and a lot of those Were working hard under enormous pressure and are real patriots and to me that was this the biggest Gut Punch not only to the Senate who was on a bipartisan basis. Working to get the truth out of this program. It was a punch in the gut to all the C. I.. Officers who left the CIA who left this program program who went through appropriate channels. Who went to the zone inspector general and said the CIA is engaged in war crimes and of course the White House was always always a basically standing in front of us on the last two years of trying to complete that report and get it out they let the agency go out there and make false claims about the report itself and then they fought the Senate tooth and nail again on a bipartisan basis? To fight the release this report. What relationship to John Brennan have to the torture program and the CIA? During that Era John Brennan held some very senior leadership roles during the primaries executive director of the agency during during the program and certainly was aware of it. That's the number three guy at at. Ci and Brian Maintains that he objected to the program. But we had six point three million pages of records and and we looked for that right. We look for some sign of could be text message people saying Hey John Brennan said today. He's against this program could be an email. John Brennan sent. We couldn't find find any evidence and we really wanted to find it. I just wanted to confirm that. And in fact he was Slated to be Obama. CIA Director Right off the bat in that first term but his nomination was effectively killed by Democrats in the Senate not the Republicans but by Democrats in the Senate and the central concern. Concern was Brennan and the question of torture and the CIA. Absolutely am that time the Senate thought it would be a terrible idea to reward award somebody who has knowledge of this torture program and elevate them to be. CIA Director and for Obama to nominate them just just seemed a crazy but of course John Brennan stays in the White House in a non Senate confirmed position where he becomes the overlord. And and Ryan is the guy who has shepherding in the new era of expanded drone drone strikes. So he does his time there in the Non Senate confirmed position and then things settled down a bit and the next time around Obama puts him up and he largely we just sales through his confirmation and become director at that point a draft of the Senate report had been provided to the CIA and John Brennan was asked very pointedly..

Donald Trump are continuing with the House Judiciary Dish Airy Committee picking up from the Intelligence Committee. It's pretty clear that trump did what he keeps screaming that he didn't do. He abused the powers of office. It is clear that trump has done all sorts of stuff that justify impeaching him and criminally prosecuting him at the same time. It's really hard to get passionately. Nationally worked up about the specific facts of the Democrats impeachment efforts when you look at the vast array of presidential crimes that go completely unpunished and are actually often celebrated. I'm talking about war. Crimes crimes of economic terror like all of his predecessors Donald Trump is authorizing. The operation is regularly that knowingly.

The strike kill the twenty five year. Old Mother Milana three correlative. Send the car's driver in southeastern Afghanistan while Barack Obama who presided over the massive expansion of US drone strikes would publicly express remorse morse for the killing of civilians. While also continuing to kill civilians. Trump has taken a different approach. He celebrates war criminals he pardons them or restores restores their ranks over the objections of senior career. Military officers just look at the recent cases of navy seals who did heinous acts while all in us uniform the whole trump Ukraine affair in its technical and mundane details has had this unintended impact of unmasking the the hypocrisy and overwhelming power of the state and its minions to define what real crimes actually look like. Trump is using the office so the presidency to wage a dirty war against a political opponent. That's a real crime trump using the office of the Presidency to kill maim or starve civilians. Well that's just foreign policy. There is absolutely no story in recent. US history. That better illustrates this brutal reality of what American American exceptionalism really means than the post nine eleven CIA torture program and the ways in which both the Bush and Obama administrations did everything everything possible to ensure that no one would ever be held accountable and that the full truth of what was done under this program would not see the light of day the new feature film from Amazon Studios.

Tell me that in a previously undisclosed secret mission in two thousand seventeen the US successfully extracted from Russia one one of its highest level covert sources inside the Russian government and knowledge then what happens silver so it was not long after CNN broke the news that Russia apparently released the spies name. We have not confirmed the name of the spine nor will we repeat the name. The Russians revealed at first when this happens you think oh it's Russian disinformation but then you start a quick google search and looks like this guy was a diplomat looks like this guy was a diplomat in the United States at some point and Lo and behold. There's a deed for a house in the Virginia suburbs. You just google the name of this spy oddly enough an address. POPs up for what appears to be a senior Russian official working with the US. What do you actually do with that information so it's sort of shocking to find that it's just profoundly weird like this is not how it's supposed to work like. Russia's not supposed to release the name aim of the spy like you're not supposed to Google the spy in your backyard but what you do with that information as you drive out and pay a visit so the next morning I the family car was in use so I rented a car two go. Which is very small all smart car? Would you're not supposed to take on the highway but I discovered you can can achieve speeds of sixty five miles an hour with a very very small smart car here in that classic spy thriller car and you know it's not like you're sneaking up when you drive in basically a clown car but I needn't thought right as I was weaving through the curvy roads of Virginia subdivisions that I was going to surprise anyone because when I arrived at the house there it was a half dozen other reporters there so I parked my car said hello to my arrival at the Washington Post and then I walked up the driveway. I'm walking down to the cul. De Sac where you can see. The House has a big porch. The three stories very large house. I just remember being like surprised like these are huge. The house's pretty good to be a spy. Guess Lawn has been freshly mowed. The cuttings are still on the driveway here so I walked up to the house lot of windows right here on the porch. You know someone has been in here and has drawn the shutters. I I walked up earlier and you could see inside inside and now they've drawn the drapes. Children's toys visible in the backyard wading pool. There's cars ars from another reporter left in the door. I'm GonNa ring the Bell and then without thinking I put my hand on the doorknob and then I just instantly they thought Oh man Russia is known for going after spies by coating doorknobs with nerve agents and you just touch the doorknob and I just touch the DOORKNOB but of course you're fine. I'm fine momentary scare. The GARBAGE BIN is left out front front. The neighbors had said that there was a dog behind the sheriff was supposed to come look but nobody was home but I I wanted to figure out what happened so I walked down. The driveway crossed the cul de sac and tried to meet some of the neighbors I I'm with the New York Times on Julian Barnes. I'm doing some reporting about the neighbor okay I don't know if you saw the press reports or whatnot but broke out in my paper and CNN yesterday about the informant who told about mentally and Russian media Russian government is reporting. It is your neighbor and what did they know. Well you know when you're reporting about somebody. In talking to neighbors the classic journalistic joke was was they were very quiet a new neighbors we hadn't even met him. The main to get over didn't get over and of course stereotypically and you know we heard they were very quiet but one of the neighbors describe were shooting off fireworks crap. There's a neighbor of the wife and the kids sitting on the porch out over inviting them over for the fourth of July fireworks. I went over and vitamin she. She said he say she didn't speak English. So your husband came out and said that they would just watched from the steps. The interactions were a little bit few and far between that was the only interaction with him other than just go even when we passed on the street and walking the dog Rodway Volney Lar- I did stop and his wife was walking the dog and I doc said hi how you doing. She just she out this student. She said fine fine fine as a guy like the house in the neighborhood and she's like fine fine fine fine. That was the only time I've ever talked to eat it but you know the details they did provide really seemed seemed to confirm that. This was our guy that this was the spot is a Russian couple. In the I remember to a taller boy they may even carry the the family moved in June of twenty eighteen. They were vague about where they came from. Just saying they had meaning from northern Virginia it was at least one little kid and then the other was of US junior high school. The husband was friendly but spoken. What everyone knew was a heavy Russian accent. He was a diplomat for many years. So I presume he's English was pretty good was that your accent and one of the neighbors told me that they had been whisked away the night before. A van came up loaded them up and took them to a location unknown. Did these numbers eight we're talking to you seem shocked by this seeming spy in their midst you know oddly. They didn't a little bit spy novelist. It's how the world works so. I mean you know we do it to them. They do to us. One person was like we live near Washington. There are a lot of spies around here. It's it's government so you know it's it's every government and they seem to very quickly process that this neighborhood. They didn't know very well that he had been a spy. A and one of the neighbors was pretty outspoken and turned out to be pretty proud of his neighbor and said my only concern is our side favors. This guy was doing important work for America and you know he had really risk his own life to do good for our country so we didn't know our neighbor was a spy five but now that we know he was a spy for us for the good guys rah-rah exactly which is a pretty quick mental somersault to do. I think but yeah that's what happened. They quickly thought all right. He's on our side. Let's rally around the flag for them. so then what happens after a few hours the postman drives lives up and he's immediately mobbed by six reporters and then. I just look at that scene and I think the postman doesn't know anything this is over so I got back into my car and I headed back to the New York Times Washington bureau to keep reporting and presumably they drop off your car to go at its cargo place. You can just leave them anywhere in the District of Columbia.

"So you have that statutory baseline for a lot of these protections, a really critical, one for us is one of those executive orders executive order, twelve triple three executive order twelve three really defines the role of each of the intelligence community elements. Right it, what's the fines, the CIA and the FBI the FBI and also determines, what scope is going to be for each of those agencies and really critical to my work says that if there's if you're an agency as the CIA does that is going to in any way collect or retain or share where we would often uses disseminate Americans information. US person information is the technical term you have to have a set. Of rules that are approved by your director, and by the attorney general, so we referred to these to the as the Torney general guidelines is a horrible roles that were kind of reverse the pirates of the Caribbean. They are not guidelines. They are in fact rules, but they are referred to as attorney general guidelines, and they govern those things about that collection. The retention the dissemination of the US person information, so we very substantially revised ours. Pretty recently, we released those in the past two years. And we did a couple of things the first thing is actually the release. Right. So we had had these rules since the eighties before we had once released them under a foia. I'm going to say somewhat evill redacted, and that, that was our only kind of public communication about those. So one of the things that we want to do in very much did with our US person rules as we revamp them, we rewrote them and we did. So in a way where we can. Did release them entirely to the public. So these rules that govern how we collect information how we retain it. How we disseminate, it are entirely unclassified were released by the there on our website right now and everything in tired of the rules. It isn't these rules, plus a classified appendix. Right. You're looking at the whole rule set that was very revolutionary for us, and it really actually required us to rewrite the rules from the ground up to be able to do that. But we thought it was critically important that we'd be able to communicate with folks about that. I'll explain a bit about why later, we thought that was important, but that wasn't the only reason that we realized rules. The reason we revise rules is because our operational environment had fundamentally changed. We had a great set of rules if you're going to get a sheaf of papers in some darkened alley about military intelligence, and you could look through them and figure out, what was the foreign intelligence information would send that back to Washington. And if there was Americans information that was irrelevant. It was just left on the cutting room floor right Ben, and I don't want to suggest that we don't still do that, right. We do, and we still have rules that allow us to really just get rid of Americans information, right there on the front ends, if it's irrelevant share it, if it is relevant. That is something that we absolutely do the change in the operational environment is the change for all of us, right? We are living in a digital space. So if you think about that rule set and then try to apply it to a different scenario. Let's say you have a foreign adversaries foreign hacker. And the CIA is able to obtain in an authorized way, the hard drive of that foreign adversaries hacking hacking ride their hard drive. So that's going to be gigabytes gigabytes of information, and it's going to have lots of information about the hacker in how they did what they did. It's also most likely going to have the fruits of some of that hacking, right? If they are targeting Americans, there's going to be some pretty sensitive person information on there, potentially. So what? Do you do with that, right? At some level, you need to acquire that information you need to know what was compromised. You need to be able to work with some of our partners in the rest of the federal government to advise people that they've been victims of that academic..

"Final cia director john brennan who also worked at the cia during that period as a role called deputy executive director i worked john the white house i talked with him about these issues a lot he said he had knowledge of harsh interrogation tactics being used than verbally opposed them at the time but wasn't in a job where he could stop them from happening right he wasn't like a seat at the table in a policy role you also later then helped ban the practice but i know that the aclu strongly opposed john's nomination at that time and i raise him because i'm curious where you think we should draw the lines in terms of who was permanently tainted by their association with the cia at that time is it anyone who worked on these programs is it just folks who did the interrogating oversaw is at ci leadership i mean how do you think we should think about you know accountability when it comes to these torture program i think that there needs to be a level of accounting for your own self in the sense that he we need to make clear what you believe in what you don't believe in and i can understand john brennan's argument that okay well i didn't have a direct role so i should be tainted by it and then i i would argue that then there's an incumbent responsibility on himself to condemn that which he was not part of and to say that it will not occur again i i hear you on that as he came into office he did help take actions that made clear that torture should happen on our watch i think as i look at gina hassle she's a very very different category than john brennan she was the person who had policy control who had directional control over this and i guess to your you know dear from john brennan who i who i think has a remarkable career and government service and as somebody you know better than i serious and a professional person i think there's many who have relationships with gina hassle in that because of those relationships feel compromised in a moral way out argue that they are willing to look pal.
