What the Sony Hack Really Means {Updated x2}

This Sony hack bullshit is a false flag operation, one way or another. Whether China or Russia perpetrated it {it was sophisticated and required resources that North Korea likely doesn’t have} as payback for NSA intrusions, or the NSA or a subcontractor spoofed the IPs, it is pure bullshit. That it actually has promoted, rather than really hurt, in the longrun a film that, like Zero Dark Thirty and torture, glorifies assassination, tells you immediately that it’s the brainchild of Langley with the loving approval of President Barack Cheney.

Update:

Yep.

It’s all about glorifying war, and look who has jumped on the bandwagon.

The free speech point is of course not lost on me. And, yes, you should be able to make whatever movie you like. But George knows good and goddam well what happens when you do. Good to know CIA made George their bitch after all, as they have with Obama. All for nothing, what a goddamned surprise.

Update 2, part 1:

This is the routine, over and over again with stars.

“Listen, GMO farming will save Africa. We have the data. Forget the crazies running around saying Monsanto is Satan. We’ve done the studies. This is Science.”

“We had nothing to do with the mess in the Ukraine. I promise you. That’s Russian propaganda.”

“Don’t believe the people who say we’re funding terrorists. That’s crap.”

After all, we slap banks who fund terrorists and launder drug money on the wrist with a wet noodle. We must be the good guys.

Perfect reason to seek help from those who approved and co-funded the piece of shit.

Of course the alternate explanation involves “hackers bad,” just at the point the Department of Schmustice delayed once again an already agreed to sentencing plea deal with Barrett Brown. The Obama administration is seeking to scare the pants off of Judge Lindsey at the same time they are promoting American exceptionalism in forcing food up anuses, murdering reporters with hacked car EPROMs, and blowing brown children apart with drones.

Update 2, part 2:

Undercoverinfo, “Barrett Brown: why his sentencing hearing was sabotaged; his case should now be thrown out,” 19 December 2014:

undercoverinfo.wordpress.com/2014/12/19/barrett-brown-why-his-sentencing-hearing-was-sabotaged-his-case-should-now-be-thrown-out/

On Tuesday the sentencing of Barrett Brown, a US journalist, was delayed for a second time and postponed until January 22 of next year. At the hearing the prosecution dramatically presented 500 pages of new evidence, seemingly unrelated to the charges to which Brown was awaiting sentencing. The only explanation for this is that it was a clumsy attempt by the prosecution to provide the judge with a basis for awarding a maximum sentence at the January hearing.

And so, coupled with knocking the Torture Report off of the front page, this begins to look like another 3D chess move to preserve CIA’s ass-stuffing, broken-bottle-raping, hide.

So let’s fix some of that.

Leopold, Jason, “The Weird Saga of the Other ‘Smoking Gun’ Torture Report the CIA Still Has Under Wraps,” VICE, 18 December 2014:

https://news.vice.com/article/the-weird-saga-of-the-other-smoking-gun-torture-report-the-cia-still-has-under-wraps

But last week, outgoing Senator Mark Udall of Colorado, in his final speech on the Senate floor and in the wake of the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s executive summary of the so called torture report, discussed the document at length. Udall called the still-secret CIA report — dubbed the Panetta Review after former CIA Director Leon Panetta — a “smoking gun.”

Kaye, Jeff, “Torture program linked to discredited, illegal CIA techniques,” AJAM, 18 December 2014:

Any suggestion of the drugging of prisoners in the post-9/11 era could be explosive. The application of “mind-altering substances or other procedures calculated to disrupt profoundly the senses or the personality” is a serious violation of federal law, with convictions bringing sentences up to 20 years in prison.

Still, details and language in the SSIC report could be seen to be pointing in that direction.

Allegations of the use of pharmacological agents against detainees exist in the summary. Authors of the SSCI report cite repeated statements by “high-value” prisoner Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri that his CIA captors drugged him. The report does not comment further on this issue, though at least one other prisoner is described as being “sedated” at one point.

Wow, 20 years. Hm.

It is not about protecting you in your goddam rented trailer. It’s about treating generals and admirals like the demigods they know that they are. It’s about shoving Dick Cheney’s friends so much money that they can buy whoever gets elected in 2016 {they already have}. It’s about working our way up to murdering as many dark skinned people, gays, atheists, activists, and freethinkers as possible under the guise of “we gotta do something about climate change.” This excuse is belied by the fact that the US Department of Defense is the world’s largest polluter. No, that’s really about expanding the defense and intelligence markets domestically because that also helped to buy Congress, just as it did during Vietnam.

The scheme is simple: The Pentagon allows studios to use military hardware and bases at a discounted, taxpayer-subsidized rate.

In exchange, filmmakers must submit their scripts to the Pentagon for line edits. Not surprisingly, those edits often redact criticism of military policy, revise depictions of historical failures, and generally omit anything else that might make audiences wonder if our current defense policy is repeating past mistakes.

In contrast to Obama’s murderous romp, Angelina Jolie made a war movie about forgiveness. Like Kill the Messenger, it’s not getting the attention it deserves. In her case, it was because she became ill:

Gates, Daniel, “Angelina Jolie Has Chicken Pox, Forced to Cancel ‘Unbroken’ Appearances,” MSN, 13 December 2014:

http://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/celebrity/angelina-jolie-has-chicken-pox-forced-to-cancel-unbroken-appearances/ar-BBgIrOT

The film is about a former POW who, in 1950, went back to Japan and testified about the atrocities committed in the prison camp while he was there. He met again many of the prison guards and the Colonel in charge of the camp and told them he forgave them. Of course, this “Christian” nation, whether you mean the Mormons in CIA, the Catholics in DoD, or whatever the hell people like Obama and Hillary and their cousins W and Jeb really are, don’t want to hear about healing and an end to conflict. Money is far more important to all of these groups because that’s just how they measure “God’s love.” Of course the Hollywood version toned down the Jesus stuff some. And of course what has upset televangelists is that, so they get to dismiss the peace, love, forgiveness parts.

This is a thoroughly screwed up chunk of Earth.

Even the War Nerd gets it. I don’t care, this is newsworthy. Again, you can see why they are so frustrated. That is, if you still give the slightest shit about human beings. Our government and its West Coast propaganda machine clearly do not.

Brecher, Gary, “The War Nerd: More proof the US defense industry has nothing to do with defending America,” Pando Daily, 18 December 2014:

pando.com/2014/12/18/the-war-nerd-more-proof-the-us-defense-industry-has-nothing-to-do-with-defending-america/

It makes no sense. I’ll just say that right up front. The reason it doesn’t seem to make any sense is that it doesn’t. There are no secret reasons here, no top-security considerations that justify any of this. It’s corruption, pure and simple. The sooner you understand that the US defense industry has nothing at all to do with defending America, and everything to do with making Dick Cheney’s buddies even richer, the more quickly you’ll be able to understand what’s going on.

And the reason they found it inappropriate is as simple as a liquor store holdup: money. …

Nothing will get done. No one will go to jail for any of this filth. You can get 15 years for robbing a 7-11, but the filth in the three-letter agencies, the service procurement officers who slip into comfy industry jobs between administrations, the corrupt project managers socking it away on an aircraft they know is worthless; not one of those pigs will do a day in prison for any of it.

It’s not that Obama has been disappointing as an antiwar progressive. It’s that he’s been consistently disappointing as any kind of antiwar president, the reason he was elected in the first place.
