Russia's FSB Intelligence Service Hacked: 'Largest Data Breach In Its History'

Red faces in Moscow this weekend, with the news that hackers have successfully targeted FSB—Russia's Federal Security Service. The hackers managed to steal 7.5 terabytes of data from a major contractor, exposing secret FSB projects to de-anonymize Tor browsing, scrape social media, and help the state split its internet off from the rest of the world. The data was passed to mainstream media outlets for publishing.

A week ago, on July 13, a hacking group under the name 0v1ru$ that had reportedly breached SyTech, a major FSB contractor working on a range of live and exploratory internet projects, left a smiling Yoba Face on SyTech's homepage alongside pictures purporting to showcase the breach. 0v1ru$ had passed the data itself to the larger hacking group Digital Revolution, which shared the files with various media outlets and the headlines with Twitter—taunting FSB that the agency should maybe rename one of its breached activities "Project Collander."

FSB's secret projects that contractor SyTech had worked since 2009 include:

Nautilus - a project for collecting data about social media users (such as Facebook, MySpace, and LinkedIn).
Nautilus-S - a project for deanonymizing Tor traffic with the help of rogue Tor servers.
Reward - a project to covertly penetrate P2P networks, like the one used for torrents.
Mentor - a project to monitor and search email communications on the servers of Russian companies.
Hope - a project to investigate the topology of the Russian internet and how it connects to other countries' network.
Tax-3 - a project for the creation of a closed intranet to store the information of highly-sensitive state figures, judges, and local administration officials, separate from the rest of the state's IT networks.

Hackers breach FSB contractor, expose Tor deanonymization project and more

SyTech, the hacked company, was working on research projects for the FSB, Russia's intelligence service.

Hackers have breached SyTech, a contractor for FSB, Russia's national intelligence service, from where they stole information about internal projects the company was working on behalf of the agency -- including one for deanonymizing Tor traffic.

The breach took place last weekend, on July 13, when a group of hackers going by the name of 0v1ru$ hacked into SyTech's Active Directory server from where they gained access to the company's entire IT network, including a JIRA instance.

Hackers stole 7.5TB of data from the contractor's network, and they defaced the company's website with a "yoba face," an emoji popular with Russian users that stands for "trolling."

Hackers posted screenshots of the company's servers on Twitter and later shared the stolen data with Digital Revolution, another hacking group who last year breached Quantum, another FSB contractor.

This second hacker group shared the stolen files in greater detail on their Twitter account, on Thursday, July 18, and with Russian journalists afterward.

FSB's secret projects

Per the different reports in Russian media, the files indicate that SyTech had worked on a multitude of projects since 2009 for FSB unit 71330 and for fellow contractor Quantum. Projects include:

Nautilus - a project for collecting data about social media users (such as Facebook, MySpace, and LinkedIn).
Nautilus-S - a project for deanonymizing Tor traffic with the help of rogue Tor servers.
Reward - a project to covertly penetrate P2P networks, like the one used for torrents.
Mentor - a project to monitor and search email communications on the servers of Russian companies.
Hope - a project to investigate the topology of the Russian internet and how it connects to other countries' network.
Tax-3 - a project for the creation of a closed intranet to store the information of highly-sensitive state figures, judges, and local administration officials, separate from the rest of the state's IT networks.

BBC Russia, who received the full trove of documents, claims there were other older projects for researching other network protocols such as Jabber (instant messaging), ED2K (eDonkey), and OpenFT (enterprise file transfer).

Other files posted on the Digital Revolution Twitter account claimed that the FSB was also tracking students and pensioners.
Some projects came to be, were tested

But while most of the projects look to be just research into modern technology -- which all intelligence services carry out -- there are two that appear to have been tested in the real world.

The first was Nautilus-S, the one for deanonymizing Tor traffic. BBC Russia pointed out that work on Nautilus-S started in 2012. Two years later, in 2014, academics from Karlstad University in Sweden, published a paper detailing the use of hostile Tor exit nodes that were attempting to decrypt Tor traffic.

Researchers identified 25 malicious servers, 18 of which were located in Russia, and running Tor version, the same one detailed in the leaked files.

The second project is Hope, the one which analyzed the structure and make-up of the Russian segment of the internet.

Earlier this year, Russia ran tests during which it disconnected its national segment from the rest of the internet.

SyTech, the hacked company, has taken down its website since the hack and refused media inquiries.

so weird that theyd do that about a so called 'nothingburger' huh?

You mean the "nothingburger" that has produced zero DT indictments? 23.Jul.2019 10:53


uh huh.

What's really interesting is upcoming DOJ IG Horowitz' verdict. Scuttlebutt is that Obama administration FBI and associated intel assets ran a targeted campaign :

Comey had an inside man aka 'mole' at the White House 23.Jul.2019 11:02

July 22, 2019

Former FBI Director James Comey had an inside man at the White House, feeding the bureau information about President Trump and his aides in 2017.

Now this individual, who after leaving the government was hired by BuzzFeed to verify parts of British ex-spy Christopher Steele's dossier, may be tied to an investigation into alleged surveillance abuses by the DOJ and the FBI being conducted by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

This previously unreported mole in the White House appears in a new report by RealClearInvestigations that explored possible misconduct by Comey for what two U.S. officials described as essentially "running a covert operation against" the president even as he was assuring Trump he was not the subject of any investigation.

Anthony Ferrante, a longtime FBI official, worked as a cybersecurity adviser on the National Security Council. Officials said Ferrante was working in the White House even while the FBI held him on reserve status. All the while, he was sharing information about Trump and his aides back to FBI headquarters.

One former National Security Council official said Ferrante's unique position was highly irregular.

"In an unprecedented action, Comey created a new FBI reserve position for Ferrante, enabling him to have an ongoing relationship with the agency, retaining his clearances and enabling him to come back in [to bureau headquarters]," the official said, adding that the NSC division supervisor was "not allowed to get rid of Ferrante" and that the arrangement appeared to be "in direct conflict with the no-contact policy between the White House and the Department of Justice."

Ferrante left the White House in April 2017, not long before Trump fired Comey as FBI director.

He went on to join FTI Consulting, a business-advising firm headquartered in Washington, D.C. Through this firm, Ferrante was hired by BuzzFeed to investigate the dossier composed by Steele, to try and corroborate the unverified claims about Trump's ties to Russia that appear in the research.

Ferrante was replaced in the White House by another FBI official, Jordan Rae Kelly, who signed security logs for Ferrante to enter the White House while he was contracted by BuzzFeed. Kelly left the White House last year and also joined FTI Consulting.

The FBI declined to comment for this report.

The dossier was published by BuzzFeed in January 2017 after reports came out that Comey privately briefed then-President-elect Trump on select allegations from Steele's work at a Trump Tower briefing. This meeting in New York, which came one day after Comey met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office with some of his top administration officials, is now under scrutiny by Horowitz's team.

In what has become an urgent area of consternation for Republican lawmakers, the FBI relied heavily on Steele's unverified dossier to obtain Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants filed to surveil onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Four FISA warrant applications and renewals were filed from October 2016 through June 2017 against Page. Steele was hired by opposition research firm Fusion GPS and his dossier was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign.

While under contract for BuzzFeed, Ferrante compiled a report that was filed in federal court as part of a lawsuit over the publication of the dossier. He found that internet service providers mentioned in the dossier that were owned by Russian entrepreneur Aleksej Gubarev may have been used by Russian agents to support the hack of the DNC and the campaign chairman of Clinton's campaign during the 2016 election. Unlike Steele's dossier, Ferrante's report did not directly link Gubarev or his executives to the hacking. "I have no evidence of them actually sitting behind a keyboard," Ferrante said in a deposition.

It is unclear whether Ferrante is still working for BuzzFeed. A spokesman for the outlet declined to comment on questions from the Washington Examiner about Ferrante. Ferrante did not immediately return an emailed request for comment from the Washington Examiner and a spokeswoman at FTI Consulting declined comment to RealClearInvestigations, as did Comey's attorney.

Horowitz's team has reviewed more than 1 million records and conducted more than 100 interviews, including with Comey and Steele. The information provided by Steele was reportedly interesting or credible enough to justify extending the length of the investigation, which Attorney General William Barr earlier this year had predicted would be complete by May or June.

House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins said over the weekend he expects the inspector general's report to be released this fall. The RealClearInvestigations report puts a release date sometime in September.

Meanwhile Attorney General William Barr is conducting a review of the origins of the Russia investigation, and he has said he is working very closely with Horowitz. The inspector general can recommend prosecutions, and U.S. Attorney John Durham, whom Barr tasked to lead the review, has the ability to convene a grand jury and to subpoena people outside of the government.

indictments? 23.Jul.2019 13:01


plenty of them.

Papadopoulos, Gates, Flynn, Cohen, Roger Stone

i feel like there is something in common with them. almost like they are all criminal grifters who surrounded a criminal grifter

so crazy that they all got pinched for lying to the feds. i mean, if it really was a nothingburger they wouldn't have been lying to protect trump. maybe they were just banking on pardons

RE: "Papadopoulos, Gates, Flynn, Cohen, Roger Stone"— 23.Jul.2019 17:32


you have much to learn Grasshopper...

All were 'technicalities' of lying to the FBI/DOJ, who entrapped each of them.
Ongoing lawsuits and legal motions in retaliation or response to their 'convictions'.
(Stone btw and fwiw has a tattoo of Richard Nixon on his back; so who gives a **** what happens to him. Paul Manafort, who you didn't mention, was Stone's old corporate lobbying buddy from the early 1980s. All scum. ---> **YOU NEED TO WATCH THE DOCUMENTARY FILM TITLED : 'Get Me Roger Stone')

Papadopoulos Set Up By Mueller?

Australian diplomat Alexander Downer, and the mysterious professor Joseph Mifsud? According to Papadopoulos, a woman who (he much later discovered) had a direct working relationship with (later-to-be) Special Counsel Robert Mueller — U.K.-based FBI lawyer and legal consultant Arvinder Sambei — introduced him to a series of contacts in Europe who were U.S.-U.K. intelligence assets in diplomatic circles and simultaneously worked with the Obama administration's intelligence gathering agencies (CIA, FBI, NSA, Department of Justice). Papadopoulos says he was being surveilled and monitored by these individuals and entities for a setup of the Trump presidential campaign with purported Russian ties.

(There are some reparations and retaliations for the trumped-up claims and entrapments foisted upon several of those associated with his 2016 campaign by U.S. and U.K./European intelligence assets which are currently, via the DOJ IG Horowitz study and other machinations, in the process of being exposed as the utter falsehood and treachery they most certainly are.)

However, the attempts to supposedly, somehow, "investigate" Trump for having been a Russian asset since 1987  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2018/07/436412.shtml are Moon-truther worthy. It is those persons who adhere to 'Russiagate' conspiracy theories, which have absurdly been propogated and sustained by U.S. corporate mass media for more than 3 years running (i.e. citizens who believe Trump is a 'Russia puppet', Russiagate et al. have FALLEN HOOK LINE AND SINKER FOR CORPORATE MASS MEDIA PROPAGANDA AND CONTINUE TO CONSUME IT) who have a problem (which needs to be dealt with).

"We don't know what we don't know."

Konstantin Kilimnik — key figure in Mueller report was State Dept intel 24.Jul.2019 12:03

John Solomon

Key figure that Mueller report linked to Russia was a State Department intel source

By John Solomon, opinion contributor — 06/06/19 08:45 PM EDT The views expressed by contributors are their own and not the view of The Hill

In a key finding of the Mueller report, Ukrainian businessman Konstantin Kilimnik, who worked for Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, is tied to Russian intelligence.

But hundreds of pages of government documents — which special counsel Robert Mueller possessed since 2018 — describe Kilimnik as a "sensitive" intelligence source for the U.S. State Department who informed on Ukrainian and Russian matters.

Why Mueller's team omitted that part of the Kilimnik narrative from its report and related court filings is not known. But the revelation of it comes as the accuracy of Mueller's Russia conclusions face increased scrutiny.

The incomplete portrayal of Kilimnik is so important to Mueller's overall narrative that it is raised in the opening of his report. "The FBI assesses" Kilimnik "to have ties to Russian intelligence," Mueller's team wrote on Page 6, putting a sinister light on every contact Kilimnik had with Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman.

What it doesn't state is that Kilimnik was a "sensitive" intelligence source for State going back to at least 2013 while he was still working for Manafort, according to FBI and State Department memos I reviewed.

Kilimnik was not just any run-of-the-mill source, either.

He interacted with the chief political officer at the U.S. Embassy in Kiev, sometimes meeting several times a week to provide information on the Ukraine government. He relayed messages back to Ukraine's leaders and delivered written reports to U.S. officials via emails that stretched on for thousands of words, the memos show.

The FBI knew all of this, well before the Mueller investigation concluded.

Alan Purcell, the chief political officer at the Kiev embassy from 2014 to 2017, told FBI agents that State officials, including senior embassy officials Alexander Kasanof and Eric Schultz, deemed Kilimnik to be such a valuable asset that they kept his name out of cables for fear he would be compromised by leaks to WikiLeaks.

"Purcell described what he considered an unusual level of discretion that was taken with handling Kilimnik," states one FBI interview report that I reviewed. "Normally the head of the political section would not handle sources, but Kasanof informed Purcell that KILIMNIK was a sensitive source."

Purcell told the FBI that Kilimnik provided "detailed information about OB (Ukraine's opposition bloc) inner workings" that sometimes was so valuable it was forwarded immediately to the ambassador. Purcell learned that other Western governments relied on Kilimnik as a source, too.

"One time, in a meeting with the Italian embassy, Purcell heard the Italian ambassador echo a talking point that was strikingly familiar to the point Kilimnik had shared with Purcell," the FBI report states.

Kasanof, who preceded Purcell as the U.S. Embassy political officer, told the FBI he knew Kilimnik worked for Manafort's lobbying firm and the administration of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, whose Party of Regions hired Manafort's firm.

Kasanof described Kilimnik as one of the few reliable insiders the U.S. Embassy had informing on Yanukovych. Kilimnik began his relationship as an informant with the U.S. deputy chief of mission in 2012-13, before being handed off to the embassy's political office, the records suggest.

"Kilimnik was one of the only people within the administration who was willing to talk to USEMB," referring to the U.S. Embassy, and he "provided information about the inner workings of Yanukovych's administration," Kasanof told the FBI agents.

"Kasanof met with Kilimnik at least bi-weekly and occasionally multiple times in the same week," always outside the embassy to avoid detection, the FBI wrote. "Kasanof allowed Kilimnik to take the lead on operational security" for their meetings.

State officials told the FBI that although Kilimnik had Ukrainian and Russian residences, he did not appear to hold any allegiance to Moscow and was critical of Russia's invasion of the Crimean territory of Ukraine.

"Most sources of information in Ukraine were slanted in one direction or another," Kasanof told agents. "Kilimnik came across as less slanted than others."

"Kilimnik was flabbergasted at the Russian invasion of Crimea," the FBI added, summarizing Kasanof's interview with agents.

Three sources with direct knowledge of the inner workings of Mueller's office confirmed to me that the special prosecutor's team had all of the FBI interviews with State officials, as well as Kilimnik's intelligence reports to the U.S. Embassy, well before they portrayed him as a Russian sympathizer tied to Moscow intelligence or charged Kilimnik with participating with Manafort in a scheme to obstruct the Russia investigation.

Kasanof's and Purcell's interviews are corroborated by scores of State Department emails I reviewed that contain regular intelligence from Kilimnik on happenings inside the Yanukovych administration, the Crimea conflict and Ukrainian and Russian politics. For example, the memos show Kilimnik provided real-time intelligence on everything from whose star in the administration was rising or falling to efforts at stuffing ballot boxes in Ukrainian elections.

Those emails raise further doubt about the Mueller report's portrayal of Kilimnik as a Russian agent. They show Kilimnik was allowed to visit the United States twice in 2016 to meet with State officials, a clear sign he wasn't flagged in visa databases as a foreign intelligence threat.

The emails also show how misleading, by omission, the Mueller report's public portrayal of Kilimnik turns out to be.

For instance, the report makes a big deal about Kilimnik's meeting with Manafort in August 2016 at the Trump Tower in New York.

By that time, Manafort had served as Trump's campaign chairman for several months but was about to resign because of a growing controversy about the millions of dollars Manafort accepted as a foreign lobbyist for Yanukovych's party.

Specifically, the Mueller report flagged Kilimnik's delivery of a peace plan to the Trump campaign for settling the two-year-old Crimea conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

"Kilimnik requested the meeting to deliver in person a peace plan for Ukraine that Manafort acknowledged to the Special Counsel's Office was a 'backdoor' way for Russia to control part of eastern Ukraine," the Mueller report stated.

But State emails showed Kilimnik first delivered a version of his peace plan in May 2016 to the Obama administration during a visit to Washington. Kasanof, his former handler at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, had been promoted to a top policy position at State, and the two met for dinner on May 5, 2016.

The day after the dinner, Kilimnik sent an email to Kasanof's official State email address recounting the peace plan they had discussed the night before.

Russia wanted "a quick settlement" to get "Ukraine out of the way and get rid of sanctions and move to economic stuff they are interested in," Kilimnik wrote Kasanof. The email offered eight bullet points for the peace plan — starting with a ceasefire, a law creating economic recovery zones to rebuild war-torn Ukrainian regions, and a "presidential decree on amnesty" for anyone involved in the conflict on both sides.

Kilimnik also provided a valuable piece of intelligence, stating that the old Yanukovych political party aligned with Russia was dead. "Party of Regions cannot be reincarnated. It is over," he wrote, deriding as "stupid" a Russian-backed politician who wanted to restart the party.

Kasanof replied the next day that, although he was skeptical of some of the intelligence on Russian intentions, it was "very important for us to know."

He thanked Kilimnik for the detailed plan and added, "I passed the info to my bosses, who are chewing it over." Kasanof told the FBI that he believed he sent Kilimnik's peace plan to two senior State officials, including Victoria Nuland, President Obama's assistant secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs.

So Kilimnik's delivery of the peace plan to the Trump campaign in August 2016 was flagged by Mueller as potentially nefarious, but its earlier delivery to the Obama administration wasn't mentioned. That's what many in the intelligence world might call "deception by omission."

Lest you wonder, the documents I reviewed included evidence that Kasanof's interview with the FBI and Kilimnik's emails to State about the peace plan were in Mueller's possession by early 2018, more than a year before the final report.

Officials for the State Department, the FBI, the Justice Department and Mueller's office did not respond to requests for comment. Kilimnik did not respond to an email seeking comment but, in an email last month to The Washington Post, he slammed the Mueller report's "made-up narrative" about him. "I have no ties to Russian or, for that matter, any intelligence operation," he wrote.

Kilimnik holds Ukrainian and Russian citizenship, served in the Soviet military, attended a prestigious Russian language academy and had contacts with Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska. So it is likely he had contacts over the years with Russian intelligence figures. There also is evidence Kilimnik left the U.S.-funded International Republican Institute (IRI) in 2005 because of concerns about his past connections to Russia, though at least one IRI witness disputed that evidence to the FBI, the memos show.

Yet, omitting his extensive, trusted assistance to the State Department seems inexplicable.

If Mueller's team can cast such a misleading portrayal of Kilimnik, however, it begs the question of what else might be incorrect or omitted in the report.

Attorney General William Barr has said some of the Mueller report's legal reasoning conflicts with Justice Department policies. And former Trump attorney John Dowd made a compelling case that Mueller's report wrongly portrayed a phone message he left for a witness.

A few more such errors and omissions, and Americans may begin to wonder if the Mueller report is worth the paper on which it was printed.

Papadopoulos' $10,000 cash in a suitcase — 24.Jul.2019 12:25


on June 8, 2017 George Papadopoulos was offered $10,000 cash in a suitcase presented to him by Israeli businessman Charles Tawil who was traveling to Israel to make a deal, in Tawil's hotel room. [Tawil, subsequently interviewed in Israel media, has rejected denied any ulterior 'entrapment' purpose or menace to the proposed deal.]

Papadopoulos claims he felt threatened by the cash-in-suitcase deal, and gave the suitcase with its money to his lawyer. (In later DOJ/FBI testimony Papadopoulos stated he "believed [Tawil] was likely an intelligence officer of a foreign country (other than Russia)."

when Papadopoulos returned to the United States, he was greeted by FBI agents at Dulles Airport who started searching through everything that he had the second he landed. In fact, they already had his baggage from the plane (he "couldn't believe" they had his baggage). One of the FBI agents said to him, 'this is what happens when you work for Donald Trump'.

Today, he re-tweeted his previous request that the U.S. Congress investigate the money in this suitcase (which his lawyer still has). "They are marked $100 bills. They remain with my lawyer in Athens," Papadopoulos said.

You are the one who COMPULSIVELY adheres to TDS / Trump-hate delusion in all its myriad infectious forms (and further seems to want/wish for no cure from <--- that; clear sign of an addict/incurable).

In addition you are COMPULSIVELY obsessed with the laughably pathetic idea of the Russian Republic (Hint: --> not the same as former Soviet Union, even) as some sort of external threat to U.S. i.e. a country with a lower GDP than the state of California alone. .

Anyway (if you are ? a U.S. citizen...) wouldn't you agree enough money and time has been spent by our government alone — never mind what U.S. corporate mass media has wrought — on this RussiaRussiaRussia topic?

How Bill Clinton Paved the Way for Trump's War on Immigrants

This week, the Department of Homeland Security proposed a new regulation that would allow U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to detain migrant children and their parents indefinitely, upending 20 years of legal precedent. Critics have decried the sadism of such a proposal, but few have acknowledged how multiple Democratic administrations helped pave the way for the Trump administration's violence and cruelty. In the latest installment of Scheer Intelligence, immigration attorney Helen Sklar reminds us that it was President Bill Clinton who first branded immigrants without the necessary documentation an "unlawful presence in the U.S."

The result, decades later, is that many in Congress "do not want to see the Mexican population in this country documented." As Sklar tells Truthdig's Robert Scheer, "Whether it's based on labor interests and the extent to which people's undocumented status could be exploited in the workplace ... there's a racial animus that motivates the desire for Mexicans not to be able to regularize their status."

Ultimately, Clinton's elimination of laws that made it easier for Mexican immigrants to establish permanent legal status has enabled Trump to separate families at the border, an act Sklar abhors. While she acknowledges certain historical parallels, Sklar admits this "singling out of children, and making them orphans" is unlike anything she has ever seen.

excerpt from President Clinton's State Of The Union speech, to a joint session of the 104th United States Congress on January 24, 1995.
Neocon William Kristol called the address the "most conservative State of the Union by a Democratic president in history."

" All Americans, not only in the States most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens. In the budget I will present to you, we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan. We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it. "



Clinton-era welfare reforms haunt America's poorest families, critics say

Harvey Weinstein Urged Clinton Campaign to Silence Sanders's Black Lives Matter Message

Hacked emails show that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, a longtime ally of Hillary Clinton and a major fundraiser for her 2016 campaign, urged her campaign team to silence rival Bernie Sanders's message against police shootings of African-Americans. He suggested countering it with "the Sandy Hook issue" — a reference to Sanders's opposition to lawsuits against gun manufacturers.

The emails were released by the group DCLeaks, which in the past has shared hacked emails from U.S. political and military figures. The U.S. Intelligence Community announced Friday that it is "confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails" that were made public "on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona."

The Weinstein emails were among a large number of messages DCLeaks made public on Thursday, from the gmail account of Capricia Marshall, a close Clinton confidant who worked for her in the White House and the State Department, and worked on her 2008 campaign.

at the Page One bookstore in Albuquerque, New Mexico author Roger Morris talks about his then-new book
'Partners in Power: The Clintons and Their America'
and its reception by the corporate mass media and political elites.

The book openly references Bill Clinton's late 1960s involvement with the CIA's Operation CHAOS to identify and surveill peace activists (he visited the Oslo Peace Institute and submitted a CIA informant's report on American activists who had taken refuge in Scandinavia).

Also Hillary Clinton's quiet aid during the 1980s to Contra fundraising in Little Rock, Arkansas and her activities to undermine legitimacy of peace activists and pro-Sandinista church groups opposed to U.S. policy in Central America.
