Prank Call of Cthulhu: I'm sick of Bradley Manning and Julian Assange being held up as some kind of heroes of information transparency by the script kiddie/boingboing.net set. Those two assbags have done more to hinder the free flow of information than anyone else in recent memory. At the State Dept level, personnel are no longer able to express themselves fully in diplomatic cables. And those of us whose jobs involve handling classified information are having a great time with the new restrictions placed on access and transmission of data. Fark those two assholes.


Don't forget the reddit/4chan set. /barf

Assange was and is a fool, lacking understanding of history and realpolitik.

All you Bradley Manning haters need to stop blaming the victim.

OhMyTVC15: I don't see why people are so sympathetic to Bradley Manning. He knowingly engaged in treasonous activity and did a shiat job of covering his tracks.

Regardless of your thoughts on freedom of information, he's still an idiot and deserves whatever he gets.


the frontline episode was not pro-manning.

and by group of hackers you mean military intel

I don't know about that. His info uncovered ongoing torture at Gitmo, for example.

I consider him a whistleblower.


Fair enough.

I consider him a traitor.

Lock him away for the rest of his life. Maybe Gitmo?

(I keed about the Gitmo part)

I see your point about the irony and ignorance of the script kiddie hero worship, but it seems like the security did need tightening anyway.
Manning was a private right?
Why was a private able to get to this much information?


That point was raised in the Frontline episode. Not only was such a low rank able to view classified information, he was even able to play his own music cds while doing so - without detection. WTF.

Of course, Frontline spent about 2 minutes explaining those points, and 30 minutes telling us Manning was gay. That episode was just awful. I never expected Frontline to disappoint me like that.

Seriously. A headline about Tupac being alive would have been more troll worthy and shorter to boot.

You weren't able to express yourself fully in diplomatic cables before anyway. How many State and CIA employees have been forced out over the last decade for not towing the administration line on foreign policy? The idea that two folks revealing info which, for the most part, should have never been classified in the first place are the ones responsible for this crackdown -and not the authoritarian simpletons appointed to head those agencies who classify simply for the hell of it- is ludicrous.

Yeah, see.. even the dickbags in the administration aren't accusing him of treason. Who the fark do you think you are?

I agree. This ep and their redo of their Afghan ep from a few years ago, re-edited to be more pro-government and down play the difficulties facing Pakistan's government, were a real shift in tone and quality of reportage on their part. Perhaps there's been a personnel change.

maybe they were insinuating that his frustrations at the "don't ask don't tell" policy bubbled into revenge.

bookman: skinink: I kind of understand going after the corporation, but I've never understood putting the personal info of workers or staffers online. That's just cruel and I'm sure these companies have enough skeletons in the closet which you can use to pressure them, instead of hassling the workers who may have very little power to change things.

It's similar in concept to always sniping ONLY the point man in an infantry platoon. Pretty soon, no one wants to take point.

Both Warmist and Atheist shock troops use the same theory: destroy a few careers of the more prominent "Deniers" or ID proponents, and pretty soon you have destroyed the opposition. No one who wants to keep earning a paycheck or get grants sticks their head above ground level.

Also works in politics: relentlessly attack some politician's personal issue (for example, questions regarding the REAL mother of a retarded child). Keep it up day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day after day..... Pretty soon that politician will (maybe) misstep.

Only problem is that sometimes the infantry platoon finds another (hidden) route and does a flanking attack.

And the targeted scientists often just stay underground and correspond among themselves, giving lip service to the enforced dogma (and can emerge at some key point in time with devastating rebuttals).

And the voters still happen to like what they are hearing from the politician (but simply don't say it to the distrusted polsters0>


Another good example: When you used your rich daddy's connections to get out of Viet Nam, but now you are running against a man who volunteered for combat and won medals, use a group of proxies to smear, slander, and insinuate until a decorated veteran's war service becomes a political liability...

LOL - What are the latest scientific developments in the field ID, anyway?
 
2011-05-30 04:36:37 PM  
Bradley Manning is a traitor. When your country is at war, and you commit treason, the penalty is death.

Yakking on about transparency when the information that came out directly effected our efforts in counter intelligence is stupid.

The irritation and inability to work in an environment of proper access security might be the impetus to force the end of the classify-everything policy, when all of the court rulings and FOIA requests couldn't.

FerneJohn: I consider him a whistleblower.


I don't consider him a whistleblower because he did not filter or review what he dumped, what he did was definitely wrong.

However his wrong actions have uncovered gross misuse of "Classified" for purposes other than which is lawful, and this is being talked about by almost nobody.

Also since then he has been the victim of gross human rights abuses and probably torture as well.

If the president had any balls at all he would order manning released under pardon and prosecute, the fullest extent of the law, the thugs who took it upon themselves to systematically inflict extrajudicial punishment on a man who had not been afforded his constitutionally guaranteed right to due process and protection from cruel and unusual punishment.

if you disagree with that last statement you should either take a class or 7 on the founding of this country or you should go to one that doesn't believe in such things, like North Korea or China.

I have been waiting for Don't Ask Don't Tell to be his real motive since he is forgy. I wonder if the fight he got demoted for was because he could not find any other forgys to play with.

That is the real reason they are crying torture, he wants to be in GenPop. Denying sexual gratification is torture.

Your argument is fundamentally flawed. He is not being treated like a citizen of the United States of America. He is being treated like a member of the Armed Forces. There is a difference.

As the only torture that has occurred is him not getting sex daily, I do not see your point.

Libtards think solitary is torture. Incorrect. That is why they are libtards!

So is this or is this not related to the Lockheed Martin hack which happened at the same time? All these dudes (and chicks) know one another, right? even if they're not officially related to one another. Is it possible for hackers to coordinate their shiat enough to do several 'unrelated' things at one time in order to hide a more subtle job?

/hope everyone involved gets punished

seriously, guise, your SysAdmin should be reading the blogs daily and subscribe to the official Twitter feeds of all software on your system looking for hashtags like #vulnerability and #bug and #security.

So I propose: ITT - security blogs.

No he's alive.

Right after Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson's deaths on June 25, 2009, some twitiots started saying that Jeff Goldblum died too. He didn't.

Manning and Assange (to a lesser extent) are heroes in my book.

Perhaps those in the government shouldn't be abusing their ability to keep secrets if they don't want the curtain pulled back.
