This is a 1hr. 9 min. video, but anyone wanting to hear Julian Assange speak directly about the significance of the Vault 7 document release--which I like to think includes all adult Americans, though I realize it doesn't, should at least spend 10 minutes hopping through this (my modus operandi is to watch these at night on my cell phone, and I did watch this most important video in its entirety, or else "jump through" usually extracting the main ideas).

IMO, Julian talks calmly, professionally, and clearly, with concern for the larger picture(s). If this isn't the most significant exposure of the nefarious CIA, I can't imagine what is. The roots run extremely deep, and could well lead to jail for a great many, if we the people seriously pursue it.

It is why I say this IS or should be the focal point for meetings with our local reps. click here


I also note that there are many articles summarizing this and even pointing to deeper issues, right here on Oped and other sites as well, for those more inclined to read, as usually am myself.

There was an article in our local paper (the main LDS paper) here in Salt Lake, talking about wiretapping back in the 2002 Olympics, and a suit filed by then Mayor Rocky Anderson, regarding warrantless wire tapping click here. My comment is awaiting approval at the moment, but here it is (anyone wanting to find a home for it or similar comment in their local paper is strongly encouraged to do so):

While the article is confusing, "... NSA operations director, and Michael Hayden, who headed the federal intelligence organization in 2002, both submitted declarations... claiming there was a mass, warrantless surveillance program at the Olympics." But the very title (and article contents elsewhere), say otherwise. While one may question the importance of this now, it does go the heart of what the NSA and like agencies are really doing.

And this leads to and raises a larger, major issue: What about the Vault 7 Wikileaks dump, clearly exposing the nefarious activities of our intelligence agencies, along with related exposures of NSA wrongdoing? After my second call to Senator Hatch's Office, I was told that Senator Hatch yet has no plans for dealing with this most major information. All I can think of is to encourage others to familiarize themselves with the significance of this exposure, and to ask their Utah reps, including Senator Hatch, to at least issue a statement on this, and presumably what they intend to do.

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)
