Murdoch’s Hackers National Security Threat
Major Spy Scandal Suppressed
Wiretapped: Police, Security Agencies, Political Leaders, Military…and Some Other Folks
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor
A week or so ago, I was at a meeting with the intelligence chief of a major American ally. With me were good friends, experts in counter-terrorism, surveillance and political intelligence, former top level members of American “alphabet soup” agencies.
Nothing sinister was going on. There was a problem to be addressed, very real terrorism and a very real threat against a democratic government. The solutions involved training, technical support and the use of highly classified equipment.
This same equipment, these same capabilities are being used in Britain, we were told, against celebrities. Then we found the parents of a poor dead girl were victimized, the families of dead servicemen and, finally, police, government and security officials. What was uncovered was a massive espionage operation using the world’s largest news organization as cover, an organization operating against every free government in the world.
What we found was a story that will never be told anywhere but here.
Let’s take a second and talk about “hacking.” You don’t “hack” a mobile telephone. You wiretap. This is a huge legal difference. Both are illegal but wiretapping is far more serious. When done in the name of “national security,” it is subject to abuse and a huge threat to any democratic system. When used by others, it is called spying.
The case in Britain, reported by the criminals themselves, yes, that’s right, the newspapers that were caught also own the news agencies that report the news. It goes further, the newspapers and news agencies responsible for the “not so innocent” and “not so limited” spying activities aren’t simply independent companies. They are owned by Rupert Murdoch and operated as part of the intelligence agencies of the State of Israel. Murdoch, an Israeli, a fact not known to many, is the most powerful media mogul in the world. His corporations own, not just Fox News, but networks, magazines, websites and newspapers around the world, the biggest, the most scandalous, the most biased and the most politically extreme.
Thus far, one arrest is scheduled, a former reporter named Andy Coulson. Andy was supposed to be arrested in 2007 but was saved from that unpleasant fate and, instead, appointed Director of Communications for Prime Minister David Cameron. Coulson resigned in January and is expected, according to Guardian sources, to turn himself over to authorities tomorrow.
Murdoch and his Tel Aviv based associates believe tossing Andy “under a bus” will be enough. After all, Murdoch’s empire has done more to rule Britain than any government. His publications don’t just blind the British people, they go much further. This isn’t about Britain at all, it is global politics on a grand scale, showing its dirtiest underwear to the public.
Murdoch’s worldwide media empire provides mechanisms for a global Israeli intelligence operation using their vast resources to control governments, the United States, Britain, Germany, France, Greece, so many governments. Spying operations such as the one uncovered in Britain are only a part of that capability. It isn’t just news but pop culture as well, used as a weapon, a continual, unending assault on reality, on perception, on truth.
Is Israel justified in going this far?
Is there a real danger to Israel? Should we allow these abuses as we have for decades because, as we hear every few minutes,
“(Nuclear) Israel is in danger of being pushed into the sea by armies of Muslim fanatics.”
Let’s take a second and talk about an Israeli spy doing life in prison. His name is Jonathan Pollard. He worked for the US Navy but spied for Israel. Israel and American politicians ‘friendly’ to Israel demand his release every year.
This is what his crimes are claimed to be:
Pollard stole information on Palestinian terror camps and passed it on to Israel
Why then, with the tremendous pressure the powerful Israeli lobby puts on the US, does the US military and the various intelligence and law enforcement agencies insist Pollard die in prison? The answer is simple. What Israel and Barney Frank and friends say about Pollard’s crimes is a lie. This is what Pollard did:
At the height of the Cold War, Pollard accessed and passed on this information:
NATO defense plans against a Soviet/Eastern Bloc attack
Exact locations of all American strategic nuclear forces
Names of all American intelligence agents and assets operating in nations “unfriendly” to the United States
Technical plans for advanced nuclear weapons and missile guidance systems
This information was given to Israel and directly transferred to the Soviet Union. It is believed that tens of thousands of Russian Jews and selected “others” were allowed to emigrate to Israel in exchange. Other considerations, financial in nature, were part of the deal.
What did Pollard cost the United States?
Estimates indicate that 1,100 people died because of Pollard, tortured and executed or died in Soviet gulags. These people were America’s “eyes and ears,” the heart of our intelligence community during the most dangerous period, thus far, in the history of the world.
Billions of dollars of technology was transferred to the Soviet Union, pushing some of their defense sectors forward more than a decade.
Pollard nearly caused World War III.
This is why he is still in jail.
The “spin,” from Israel, from the Murdoch “press machine” and from Israel’s friends in congress, demands Pollard’s release. Much of the “leverage” behind this push, the push toward an attack on Iran, manipulation of American public opinion on Libya, on the Palestinian issues and the other areas is likely from “information” gained by illegal electronic eavesdropping, “wiretapping” done under the guise of “journalism.”
The “front” or “durable cover” for these spy activities is “news.” The ‘news,” of course, is “dirt” for scandal rags, not really news at all.
The issue from a national security standpoint is that the news agencies themselves are directly affiliated with the same intelligence agencies tied to Pollard and now being tied to 9/11.
These “shadow” Israeli owned news agencies that we know as Fox News or the Wall Street Journal are part of a robust operational capability, intelligence gathering, propaganda and broad political infiltration.
The entire concept of “neocon” is another expression of a partnership between the Israel lobby, Israeli run news organizations in the US and right wing extremists responsible for looking the other way on 9/11, for looking the other way when the economy was looted, for looking the other way when constitutional rights were suspended or elections rigged or phony wars planned and executed or when the United States took over Afghanistan in order to set up an opium farm to control 92% of the world’s heroin business.
Let’s talk eavesdropping. Let’s talk about the equipment that Rupert Murdoch gets for his reporters.
Back in that meeting with a national intelligence chief, accessing such equipment was on the table. There were a couple of sources, one in Israel and one elsewhere. The equipment has legitimate counter-intelligence uses and is available to police and intelligence agencies. These are systems that can wiretap mobile phones and text messages over large areas. One such piece of equipment manages “slave” units, receiver and transmitter units that can be used to intercept calls and messages over many miles and many hundreds of phones.
This is how the equipment at this level, the things “reporters” keep in their car in London, has to be demonstrated and purchased:
The country purchasing this equipment sends technical experts to a third country. These experts enter the embassy of the producer nation and the equipment is demonstrated. It is then paid for in cash, some units cost up to $2.5 million each, and transferred to the embassy of the purchasing nation.
The units are then transferred to the end users by diplomatic courier.
These things aren’t made in Britain. They can’t be imported. They can only be smuggled into the country, the act of doing so is espionage. The US has dozens of these units. They are with the CIA, NSA, Homeland Security and other such organizations. The use of these units under FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) was found to be illegal, a violation of constitutional rights.
This is when used by the NSA, not by “reporters” or “anti-defamation” groups.
When James O’Keefe of “Acorn” fame was picked up for breaking into a congresswoman’s office, one of these units was seized. O’Keefe was trained in Israel.
One of the services offered “Israel friendly” members of congress, other than a deluge of laundered drug money for their campaigns is the services of clandestine intelligence agents using highly classified and illegal surveillance equipment smuggled into the United States to spy on their opponents.
These units are also used to spy on law enforcement organizations, as in Britain, tasked with investigating political corruption. This is called “counter-intelligence” by some. Others call it “perversion of the course of justice.”
Remember, the spying on celeb’s is the “cover.” As long as you are intercepting Tiger Wood’s text messages, you can spy on the FBI or Special Branch all day long.
In Britain it went further, investigators at Scotland Yard received bribes to suppress the initial investigations. If it went on there, it is going on here.
When the story was still being successfully managed as “celeb phone hacking” and not national security level espionage, the genie was ‘still in the bottle.’
Now we have another story but nobody we can trust to report it, nobody we can trust to investigate it, not in Britain and not in the United States.
What we have is simple. Embassies are bringing in highly classified and restricted equipment that can only legally be used by security agencies under strict supervision (ouch) and giving it to “reporters.” The fun and innocent side is celeb gossip. The darkside, no longer speculation involves spying and bribing police.
The real issues aren’t about news or celebs or even torturing the families of murder victims of dead soldiers.
The real story is spying, managing false flag terror cells and outwitting police and security agencies.
Here in the US, we call such actions a “clear and present danger.”
These are acts of war.

Don’t you find it odd that this equipment was used on the Royal Family in Britain and no-one, especially Murdoch’s network of spies were held accountable?
Well again no-one on Wall Street are accountable or Congress or well…. anyone at high levels of power where the real corruption exists!

Veterans might be interested in a lower-tech form of intelligence gathering, which never the less presents a significant danger to our national security.
In the 1970s, I was asked by VA doctors to relate my activities during the Vietnam and Cold War conflicts. I called NIS (now NCIS) and a special agent immediately came to the hospital to see me and returned several more times to debrief me. The first thing he said to me was “Thank you for remembering your instructions.” and that “The VA is a major source of intelligence for foreign nations.” He worked up a cover story for the doctors and showed them a copy, “eyes only”. Then he took it back. His assistance fast-tracked my claim, and no one ever asked about my service again.
Several years ago I attended a few meetings of a PTSD group at a local CBOC clinic. Several recent vets were sharing their experiences while on special operations of an obviously classified nature. When I cautioned them to keep silent about these matters until they were properly debriefed by the appropriate military intelligence agencies, VA doctors censured me for “interfering with the therapy of the other vets” and I was soon excluded from these groups.
July 7, 2011 – 11:17 am
More on this if u have it.
July 7, 2011 – 2:05 pm
In 1978, I just told the doctors I needed to check with the Navy before I would tell them anything. There was a pay phone in the hall outside the ward and I was allowed to make the call. Today, any vet who finds himself or herself in a VA hospital psych ward is not allowed to contact law inforcement of any kind. Phone calls and even letters are strictly controlled, and the powers of the VA’s own police force have been greatly expanded, both on and off hospital grounds.
July 7, 2011 – 7:26 pm
Well this really gives me the creeps, as a blue star mom and attorney I’m passing this on.
July 7, 2011 – 8:57 pm
It isn’t just the VA. Virtually all the hospital psych wards are the same, all run by Nazi racketeers. And other doctors are afraid of them. Psychiatrists are always at the bottom of the medical school rankings in terms of smarts, yet they end up with the most power. They don’t have to do ANY medical tests, unlike real doctors. They don’t have to find actual diseases, because they successfully manufactured “disorders” and filled DSM IV with them. Most of these disorders are iatrogenic and temporary, caused by the antidepressant drugs that primary care physicians are handing out like candy.
The psychiatric institutions have said for years, that the federal Patriot Act (and subsequent state acts) gives them the power to do whatever they want. In order to get anywhere with them, you must know the laws better than they do, and have a lawyer handy at all times.
July 8, 2011 – 12:59 pm
jj, if you’re not already familiar with Dr. Thomas Szasz’s work debunking psychiatry and politically motivated pathologizing of normalcy, you may find his site interesting. I’m no expert, but I also found the writing of Dr. Peter Breggin regarding the extreme dangers of psychiatric drugs a real eye opener. It looks like “they” have the people covered. Drive people to the brink of madness with depraved entertainment and the relentless horrors in the news, and then into the arms of the diabolical frauds in psychiatry. Your point about psychiatrists not having to do medical tests misses the point somewhat insofar as they can’t do medical tests for the simple reason that most everyday psychiatric diagnoses are based on circulus in probando, in which a series of symptoms confirm a putative mentally disease which, in turn, is itself defined by those very symptoms, and without a trace of biological pathology being demonstrated.

Thanks to Dan below, for Circular Reasoning tip, which I will follow up. I am a private person, not a lawyer, and have a Medical Power of Attorney for someone with an autoimmune thyroid disorder, who was given psychiatric drugs INSTEAD OF the thyroid hormone replacement that was needed. A psychiatric facility laughed at my PoA a couple months ago, and admitted my client. There WILL be repercussions to them for their decision.
I am very aware of Szasz; everyone should be! Another item that everyone should know about, is a 2-part study that was required reading in my freshman psychology class: “On Being Sane in Insane Places”. The study has been replicated several times, with similar results. The only difference since the study was done 40 or so years ago, is that psychiatry in the US is getting much worse rather than better.
July 9, 2011 – 7:24 am
I thoroughly apologize for the “autoimmune thyroid disorder” phrase I used earlier! I can’t believe I did that! That should have read “autoimmune thyroid disease”. The difference between disorder and disease, is that a diagnosis of disorder is based on a psychiatrist’s fertile and febrile imagination, whereas disease is based on medical lab tests as well as a physical medical exam. There is no possible comparison between the two.
July 10, 2011 – 6:22 am
“There WILL be repercussions to them for their decision.”
Don’t count on it. The same thing happened to my mother. She had given me a very strong health care power of attorney and when she was hospitalized after a fall she was given psych drugs without our knowledge or permission, and which I had expressly forbidden. When I discovered this and took her out of the assisted living facility where she was recovering, I filed a report with the state medical board. The doctors and nurse practitioners involved perjured themselves in depositions to state investigators and swore they had discussed all medications with my mother and me.
Thyroid problems can frequently be corrected with diet and supplements (orthomolecular therapy) rather than radiation and drugs. Look here http://www.arltma.com

“…VA doctors censured me…”
g, think Kol Nidre doctors…yes, DOCTORS ARE SPIES TOO! SAYAMIN SPIES…
the doctors, most likely, are taping the “therapy” and delivering the “what’s up” to our “special” ally.
side note: I got asked by “the nurse”, prior to the doctor entering the examination room; what nationality I was….I told the SOB that America is a nation, I guess I’m American????

Scumbag Murdoch Newspaper Closing Down :- Damage Limitation :- Cameron & Brooks Out Riding Together
excerpt :- http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2012326/James-Murdoch-announces-NOTW-close-Sunday.html
End of the World: 200 to lose jobs as Murdoch shuts phone hack scandal paper from this Sunday – but Rebekah Brooks survives
The dramatic announcement came from James Murdoch this afternoon after two days of damaging revelations for the newspaper and a growing advertiser boycott. Media observers said it looked like his father Rupert Murdoch preferred to sacrifice the newspaper rather than his chief executive Rebekah Brooks (right) who is under severe pressure to quit over claims that the paper hacked the phones of murder victims, dead soldiers and 7/7 families while she was editor. Instead, allegedly in tears, she today told the paper’s stunned staff that they should blame the Guardian for the loss of the title. Most had little sympathy and reacted with fury that they were going to lose their jobs while she kept hers. The move opens the way for a seven-day Sun newspaper which it is believed News International has been secretly planning for some time. :- ends
So who is Rebekah Brooks and why is she using the standard Z blame someone else technique when apparently caught red handed and up to her neck in it.

When Cameron went horse riding with Brooks
Posted by George Eaton – 05 July 2011 14:48
Former NoW journalist told Hugh Grant: “Cameron went horse riding regularly with Rebekah.”
In light of recent developments, I thought it was worth extracting this part of Hugh Grant’s undercover interview with former News of the World journalist Paul McMullan.
Me So they all knew? Wade probably knew all about it all?
Him […] Cameron must have known – that’s the bigger scandal. He had to jump into bed with Murdoch as everyone had, starting with Thatcher in the Seventies . . . Tony Blair . . . [tape is hard to hear here] Maggie openly courted Murdoch, saying, you know, “Please support me.” So when Cameron, when it came his turn to go to Murdoch via Rebekah Wade . . . Cameron went horse riding regularly with Rebekah. I know, because as well as doorstepping celebrities, I’ve also doorstepped my ex-boss by hiding in the bushes, waiting for her to come past with Cameron on a horse . . . before the election to show that – you know – Murdoch was backing Cameron.
Cameron’s friendship with Brooks (he also had dinner at her Oxfordshire home over Christmas) hasn’t received the attention that it deserves. But, one senses, it will now. Does she have friends in high places ?
When previously challenged over the dinner, which took place while the government was considering Rupert Murdoch’s BSkyB takeover bid, Cameron replied: “The person in question is married to a very old friend of mine. I even occasionally meet people who work for the Guardian, or the Independent, or the BBC, or whatever.” Would he offer a similar defence today? It’s all fertile PMQs material for Ed Miliband.
“I am proud not just to be a Conservative, but a Conservative Friend of Israel; and I am proud of the key role CFI plays within our Party”
And why is our prime minister, of all people, a patron of the Jewish National Fund, an organization that stands accused of racist land practices?
For those spiritual and those not, the words of the Bible contain common sense and truth. Take for instance the simple words of advice that “No man can serve two masters – for he will love one and despise the other.”
Just how then can the British Prime Minister vow to serve both Britain and Israel? Could it now be that David Cameron’s blatant and accelerating dismantling of the British nation, its Constitution, defence, values, morality, history and customs is a sign that he has come to despise the British?

About a year ago News Limited asked the British Government to not allow the BBC to report in the USA because it has an unfair competitive advantage, the BBC is paid for by taxpayers and News Limited wants to have pay walls around its content. The British Government agreed to News Limited demands.
Over the weekend the BBC World covered the News of the World story in many programs including Newsnight and Dateline as well as being the leading story in international news, so this was good to see.
The BBC is politically biased towards Israel but it is also very favourable in its reporting on other friendly countries however, unlike News Limited, it is never extreme.
The reason that the News of the World was shut down was because their advertisers jumped ship, so the paper was no longer commercially viable. No doubt, News Limited will simply open another Sunday paper under another title, using many of the News of the World staff – the ones that aren’t going to jail.

Well done! The control Israel has over the US and other countries would be comical if it wasn’t for all the death and destruction.
Excerpts from a very interesting article:
IS ISRAEL WIRETAPPING AMERICA?
By Rev. Ted Pike with Aaron and Harmony Daws
20 Apr 10
AT&T uses a company called Narus to keep records of everything said on their systems. Narus was founded by an Israeli entrepreneur in Israel with ties to Unit 800 (the NSA of Israel). Verizon’s spy system also relies on an Israeli company named Verint. The founder of Verint is an FBI fugitive who remains so. Congress granted retroactive immunity to these companies (AT&T and Verizon) for allowing their systems to be used to spy on American citizens. Stated plainly, American consumers are subject to warrantless surveillance by Israeli-founded companies without Congressional oversight or public knowledge!
Bamford details how an “Israeli spin-off” of Verint is able to do “advanced voice-mining” that finds one person’s voice in a mountain of intercepted calls.
‘With remote access to the internal and international voice and data communications of over one hundred countries around the world, including the United States, Verint’s headquarters in Tel Aviv has a capacity rivaled only by NSA’s, if not greater, especially when coupled with PerSay’s voice-mining capability.
‘PerSay is an example of how close and interconnected these companies are with Israel’s intelligence community—a factor of great concern considering how much of their bugging equipment is now secretly hardwired into the American telecommunications system.’
A former senior official in Shin Bet— Israel’s secret intelligence—is on PerSay’s board of directors. The advisory board for the company that backs PerSay includes a former chief of Israeli Mossad! Bamford says the “greatest potential beneficiaries of this marriage between the Israeli eavesdroppers and America’s increasingly centralized telecom grid are Israel’s intelligence agencies.”
In 2004, a former intelligence official told LA Times reporters,
‘There is a huge, aggressive, ongoing set of Israeli [intelligence] activities directed against the United States. Anybody who worked in counterintelligence in a professional capacity will tell you the Israelis are among the most aggressive and active countries targeting the United States. They undertake a wide range of technical operations and human operations. The denials are laughable.’
What can be done? Until there is widespread awareness of Israel’s fundamental disloyalty to America and continuing spy operations against us, Americans can do little to protect our most intimate phone and internet communications.
The time must come, and soon, that Americans realize that the “bonds of loyalty” between America and Israel should long ago have stretched to breaking. Such bonds, now causing us to naively place our most sensitive and important information gathering in the hands of Israelis, could actually become the chains of our destruction.
July 8, 2011 – 12:58 pm
“Americans can do little to protect our most intimate phone and internet communications.”
Anyone ever tried to keep cockroaches out of laundry detergent? The bastards are in your bedroom watching you, just for kicks…
July 8, 2011 – 6:28 pm
Pollard had/has some friends in high places. He used to work at the Rose Law Firm in Arkansas at the same time HRM Hillary and the now deceased Vince Foster.
Americans are getting spied on 24/7, that’s why the NSA had to build an 18 acre underground storage facility in Utah to hold all that data.
Some say Congress is doing a terrible job taking care of the replublic.
I disagree, the Dems and Repubs are doing a GREAT job representing the interests they serve; the Fed, Wall Street, the Pentagon and Israel.
As for ‘We the People,’ we’re nothing more than an obstacle to be ignored or tossed in jail.
DC politicians have been bought and sold so many times it’s pathetic.
They have nothing but contempt for the people.
July 8, 2011 – 3:58 pm
“The time must come, and soon, that Americans realize that the “bonds of loyalty” between America and Israel should long ago have stretched to breaking.”
Israel has cost America too much already. About a century from now, when there are no Israel and no United States, historians looking back with objectivity, will wonder why the leaders of the United States could not see the obvious and needless danger they put their country in through their “special” relationship with Israel.
July 8, 2011 – 9:49 pm
Ohh, for the good ol’ days before Israel came into existence and the USA was on good terms with nearly everyone in the ME and SW Asia.
Now we’re bogged down fighting Israel’s ‘existential’ enemies, which is pretty much anyone Israel doesn’t like and that’s a BIG list.

Today’s editorial in the ARAB NEWS (Jeddah), transmitted below, offers an Arab perspective on the travails of the “evil empire” of Rupert Murdoch.
Editorial: Murdoch’s muddle
Published: July 10, 2011
Let’s hope phone-hacking scandal in the UK will finally help rein in his evil empire
Is this Britain’s own Watergate, with consequences that could prove as disastrous for Cameron as they had been for Nixon? The prime minister may try hard to put up a brave face, pretending to be outraged by the shenanigans of Murdoch’s media empire even as he tries to smear everyone with the muck that he finds himself in over the phone-hacking scandal. “We have all been in this together” was the refrain in his speech on Friday, drawing attention to the close ties his Labour predecessors enjoyed with Murdoch.
That however is unlikely to rescue Cameron from the storm that has exploded in his face and could very well prove the undoing of his government. Of course, the intense love affair between Blair and Murdoch, who owns nearly half of the British press, is hardly a secret. It may have played a decisive role in Blair making it to 10 Downing Street and poor Gordon Brown being thrown out of it after Murdoch switched his patronage to the Tories.
But for all his lies and obfuscation, Blair did not pick up a former News of the World editor to be his communications chief. Cameron did. That too after Andy Coulson quit in 2007 following his involvement in, well, another phone-hacking scandal. Call it poetic justice or whatever that Cameron finds himself at the center of the current media storm over phone hacking thanks to the involvement of Coulson. The prime minister earned himself no brownie points by pitching up for his spinmeister calling him his “friend” who has been arrested.
Even though the News of the World, the flagship of Murdoch’s empire and one of the world’s largest selling newspapers, has been shut, it may be a while before this tempest rocking the British isles blows over.
The issue at the heart of this whole unsavory business is not just the shocking hacking of a murdered school girl’s cell phone by the News of the World or the politicians shamelessly sucking up to Murdoch and bending rules for him. This is about the unhealthy and immoral marriage of convenience between the media and politicians both exploiting each other and abusing the public trust and power that they enjoy.
Cameron is indeed right on the dot when he suggests “we are all in this together.” No politician in this Turkish hamam has a stitch of clothing on him. Despite being an Australian based in the US, Murdoch has been using his awesome media power to try to be a power bigger than the government itself, often dictating political agenda in the mother of all democracies. If he has politicians eating out of his hand in Britain, he has Fox News and numerous other outlets in the US to use as his tools of persuasion. Indeed, with his media empire stretching from Australia to America, the whole world finds itself in Murdoch’s stranglehold.
This wouldn’t be so serious if News Corp.’s agenda was only driven by business interests. As with Fox News, sensationalism, jingoism and a campaign of lies and hatred against minorities drive this Orwellian empire. And unabashed championing of Israel, support for Western wars and persistent hostility toward Arabs and Muslims are the hallmarks of its agenda. Let’s hope this scandal will finally help rein in the evil empire, subjecting it to scrutiny as everyone ought to be in a democracy. It’s time Murdoch stopped playing god.

I’m glad you elaborated on Pollard’s crimes which are completely glossed over in the MSM and usually accompanied by that photo where he is looking down like he is innocent.
Adjust for inflation and taking other things into consideration, Pollard quite possibly cost us over $1 trillion too. He completely compromised our cold war strategy. Years worth of work, destroyed. Sold out to get jewelry for his wife or whatever. If this man is ever freed, they better have a darn good reason. Like in return for completely nuclear disarmament by Israel. Actually forget it, they would just lie about it anyways. Or continue to hold on to them and argue about their interpretation of the language in the agreement like they do with all the UN resolutions or the Oslo Accords.
Is Rupert Murdoch really Israeli? Not shocking. Everybody knows he is Jewish despite the occasional denial from Zionists. You don’t see any other gentile addressing the ADL terrorists so many times and talking about antisemitism.
Brian, Narus recently was acquired by Boeing. I don’t know what they would use Narus technology for to be honest. There is a Narus and Amdocs connection to 9/11 too from what I recall. Narus began to focus on surveillance tech immediately after 9/11

Murdoch has been repeatedly caught breaking the law, and the only thing that happens is some flunky gets tossed to the lions.
‘Sir’ Rupert remains free and unscathed.
News of the World phone hacking affair
In 2006, reporters at the paper used private investigators to illegally gain access to hundreds of mobile phone voicemail accounts held by a variety of people of interest to the newspaper. In 2007 the paper’s royal correspondent, Clive Goodman, pleaded guilty to illegal interception of personal communication and was jailed for four months; the paper’s editor, Andy Coulson, had resigned two weeks earlier. In 2009/2010, further revelations emerged on the extent of the phone hacking, and how it was common knowledge within the News of the World and its News International parent. According to a former reporter at the paper, “Everyone knew. The office cat knew,” about the illegal activities used to scoop stories. On 17 January 2011, The Guardian reported that Glenn Mulcaire, a private investigator paid by the paper, testified that he had been asked by the newspaper’s leadership to hack voicemail accounts on its behalf. In April 2011, attorneys for the victims alleged that as many as 7,000 people had their phones hacked by the News of the World; it was further revealed that the paper’s owner, Rupert Murdoch, had attempted to pressure Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Labour Party MPs to “back away” from investigating the scandal. Three journalists on the newspaper were initially arrested : Ian Edmondson and Neville Thurlbeck on 5 April and James Weatherup on 14 April. The newspaper “unreservedly” apologised for its phone hacking activities during April 2011. On 4 July 2011, it was disclosed that potential evidence had been deleted in spring 2002 from the hacked voicemail account of Milly Dowler, then missing, but later found to have been murdered.
Is Murdoch’s Media Empire in trouble? He recently sold FACEBOOK, for which he paid around 500
MILLION, for a piddling 30 million.
“News of the World” was bleeding money. Imagine the scope of the lawsuits that will come of this scandal.
