“Deep State” operative Reality Leigh Winner?


This is an odd thing. Cue up the conspiracy theories. On a strange and bazaar note, why did the contractor she worked for just since Feb 2017, for the most part only hire ex military women in their 20’s?    Interesting to note also that she gave the info to The Intercept who is run by the same guy that Snowden gave stuff to. Maybe Chelsea Manning can explain it. Better yet, in just four short months she just happened to come upon and leak the story that The Intercept published about Russia’s so called interference in last year’s presidential election. Her bailiwick was Afghanistan intelligence. Just two cute by twice.  So let’s take my ride down the rabbit hole. This is the first in a series on this gal:

An NSA document purporting to show Russian military hacker attempts to access a Florida company which makes voter registration software is sent anonymously to The Intercept. A low-level NSA contractor, Reality Winner, above, is arrested almost immediately. What’s wrong with this picture? A lot.

What Happened is… Curious and Curiouser…

Now let’s look at what we know so far about how this happened.

A 25-year-old improbably-named Reality Winner leaves behind a trail long and wide on social media of anti-Trump stuff, including proclaiming herself a member of The Resistance. Never mind, she takes her Top Secret clearance with her out of the Air Force (she had been stationed with the military’s 94th Intelligence Squadron out of Fort Meade, Maryland, co-located with the NSA’s headquarters) and scores a job with an NSA contractor. Despite the lessons of too-much-access the Snowden episode should have taught the NSA, Winner apparently enjoys all sorts of classified documents – her Air Force expertise was in Afghan matters, so it is unclear why she would have access to info on Russia hacking of U.S. domestic companies.

Within only about 90 days of starting her new job, she prints out the one (and only one apparently, why not more?) document in question and mails it to The Intercept. She also uses her work computer inside an NSA facility to write to the Intercept twice about this same time.

Winner has a clearance. She was trained as a Dari, Pashto, and Farsi linguist by the Air Force. She knows how classified stuff works. She has been told repeatedly, as all persons with a clearance are, that her computer, email, printing, and phone are monitored. She mailed the document from Augusta, Georgia, the city where she lives and where the NSA facility is located. She practiced no tradecraft, did nothing to hide her actions and many things to call attention to them. It is very, very unclear why she took the actions she did under those circumstances. We will look at the “maybe” why on Monday. More at Antiwar.com

    Sounds as if she was sent there on a specific mission, doesn’t it?

    I can tell you, my brother in law is a 22 yr former military vet and is a federal contractor for nearly 10 yrs. who was hired on for his former employment from the military…and they believe their stuff don’t stink; I can’t get fired, yada, yada, yada…once you get hired on it is nearly impossible to get fired or get in trouble. I can also tell you from hearing him complain, Trump is working on fixing that. Root out the folks who don’t want to work and do their jobs. BTW, which he is doing, quietly, there are just about 100,000 jobs that folks have been replaced or fired from, just saying.

    As for as Winner goes, you do make an interesting point. However, I think hers is just as simple as she wanted to be a Snowden and/or Assange. She has a deep hate for America, and yes, Obama has turned that —these young folks nothing but Obama. There are plenty of Obama/Clinton leftovers who feel the same.

      Just give me until next week when I spin my tale further along!!! I agree she did want to be another Snowden. I also think that she was set up and used. A willing participant as well. All part of the faux Russian interference with the election meme.

        yeah…I can see where your going…believe me when I tell you, we have had the same discussions here…non the less, she is one angry person…and at what, I have no idea…and, yes, I do believe the Deep State will take advantage of that.

    Reblogged this on Brittius and commented:
    The only way, and I have said it for decades, that any subordinate, is so arrogant and has disregard for rules and regulations, means there is something very wrong going on involving supervision. Military. Intelligence. Police. Hamburger flippers. It doesn’t matter, because something upstairs and up the ladder, is very wrong. Mark my words.

      Something is very wrong. Or did someone find a compliant vulnerable willing soul from the Deep State and use her?

        It is my opinion, from my training and experience, that something is drastically wrong, somewhere, and that the failure is systemically accepted and never talked about or discussed, because supervision and/or management, could either lose their jobs or be arrested.

        Premeditated, drastic wrongness! Hard for me, worked a lifetime to make things work right, that what works best for others works best for me too. It is difficult to perceive otherwise. But think it happens.
