Useless idiot? Or did someone from the Deep State find a compliant vulnerable willing soul and use her? Another faux story to lead us down the wrong rabbit trail? How did a low-level contractor have access to high level Intel? An Afghanistan specialist with knowledge of three languages that happens upon a Top Secret Russian/Trump election document? She started off working intelligence in the Air force. The office location? In the same building as the NSA. Convenient wouldn’t you say? Then she went on to work at Pluribus. The first part of this tale I posted on Friday “Deep State” operative Reality Leigh Winner?
We pick up the story –
Her employer wasn’t just any employer.
Let’s look at her employer. Pluribus International Corporation
While purporting himself as being a writer of fiction, this report notes, Charles McCarry has spent the greater part of the past 40 years operating within the “Deep State”—and whose greatest accomplishment to date was using his son Nathan McCarry as the “figurehead” to establish a private spying company named Pluribus International Corporation, whose operations span the globe and lie at the very center of the vast US intelligence community.
Most bizarrely to note about Pluribus International Corporation, this report says, is that the vast majority of its nearly 210 employees are young woman with US military backgrounds—a philosophy explained by Nathan McCarry’s wife, Valerie McCarry, during a 2014 radio interview wherein she described her travails of being a young 20-year-old unwed mother raised in a US military family.
One such young female US military veteran hired by Pluribus International Corporation, this report continues, was a 25-year-old US Air Force veteran named Reality Leigh Winner—who aside from being a rabid anti-Trump “resistance” activist, spoke four languages—English, Farsi, Pashto and Dari.
Enter The Intercept:
Their first published story was an in-depth report about the NSA‘s involvement in the U.S. targeted killing program, which detailed the flawed methods which are used to locate targets for lethal drone strikes, resulting in the deaths of innocent people. This was followed by an article containing new aerial photographs of the NSA, NRO, and NGA headquarters.
In March 2014, The Intercept published leaked documents from Edward Snowden showing that the National Security Agency was building a system to infect potentially millions of computers around the world with malware. The report included a top-secret NSA animation showing how the agency disguised itself as a Facebook server in order to hack into computers for surveillance.
The Deep State makes its move:
Enter the U.S. Government Agency – And this time The Intercept, in contrast to other leakers whose info they published, made no attempt to hide her identity. They had to know she would be outed. They contacted the government. They turned over her documents given to them. She twice had written to them prior to her sending the document. She was arrested by the FBI within hours of the publication by The Intercept.
The Chicago Tribune
Partly because the case was made so quickly, critics have condemned the Intercept’s reporters for having burned their source by failing to take proper operational security precautions. They point to the claim in the FBI’s affidavit that government investigators took note of the folds in the document shown to them by the Intercept and speculated that it had been printed by the leaker, a lucky guess on their part (especially since the folds could have been created instead by the journalists). In any event, that led the government to determine that only six individuals had printed this specific document, and only one — Winner — had been in contact with the Intercept from her personal email account, which she had accessed from her work computer. The case could not have been handed more easily to the government on a silver platter.
Ed: It is reported that the letter itself contained markings which identified the printer used. Was An Office Printer Behind Reality Winner’s Arrest? – Newsy Story. But wait…Check what the Federal Complaint states: The News Outlet provided the U.S. Government Agency with a copy of this document. A copy not the original.
Enter the U.S. Government Agency:
Reality Leigh Winner, 25, a contractor with Pluribus International Corporation in Georgia, is accused of (Full Complaint) “removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet,” according to a federal complaint.
The Intercept identified as “The News Outlet.”
On June I, 2017, the FBI was notified by the U.S. Government Agency that the U.S. Government Agency had been contacted by the News Outlet on May 30, 2017, regarding an upcoming story.
The News Outlet informed the U.S. Government Agency that it was in possession of what it believed to be a classified document authored by the U.S. Government Agency. The News Outlet provided the U.S. Government Agency with a copy of this document.
The U.S. Government Agency has since confirmed that the reporting contains information that was classified at that level at the time that the reporting was published on or about May 5, 2017, and that such information currently remains classified at that level.
The story concludes tomorrow. See Reality Leigh Winner, a useless idiot or did the ‘Deep State’ use her?
