‘We are monitored and controlled and this is what scares me’

January 6, 2017

NOT MENTIONED: In statements about the Russians hacking the US election by five government departments, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange says his organisation were not referred to in them.

SECRET SERVICE: US anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee told veteran broadcaster Larry King was using the Russian narrative as a smokescreen to use cyber-ware to manipulate, monitor and control users of the Internet. He says there is definitive way of knowing how to track back a hacking source.

 

AN anti-virus software pioneer and the founder of Wikileaks have joined forces to debunk the theory that the outcome of the US election was down to interference from Russia.

In a devastating analysis of the war of words over whether or not the Democratic National Convention was hacked or not, John McAfee claimed that when computer giants claim that they have privacy or protection of critical personal date, there isn’t any.

He says the only capability that the US and other Western Governments have  is in “cyber-warfare” and what their definition is of it is what the public has to accept it as.

And to compound the narrative of Western security agencies and others who rigidly stick to the line that the Russians were involved, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange denied his sources were in Moscow.

Mr McAfee, who was speaking to veteran broadcaster, Larry King, said: “Their definition of cyber-warfare is usage of cyber technology to make sure American citizens and everyone else tows the line, that there are no terrorist activities and that we are all monitored and controlled, and this is what scares me. “

“Whenever anybody like the FBI says the Russians did it or the Chinese did it or the Iranians did something, that is a fallacy.

“Any hacker capable of breaking into something is extraordinarily able of hiding their tracks. If I were the Chinese and wanted to make it look like the Russians did it, I would put Russian language within the code.

“I would use Russian techniques of breaking into organisations, so there is simply no way to assign a source for any attack. This is a fallacy, this is what the FBI and other agencies want us to believe, so that they can manipulate our opinions, but I guarantee that if it is the Russians who looked like they did it, it is definitely not the Russians.

“We should know the truth of what is happening within our Governments. If the US government believes that the Iranians, Russians and Chinese do not already have our secrets because of their hacking technologies, then our government is deluding itself. I would rather know that my Government via the National Security Agency (NSA) is spying on me, you and others than not to know.

“I have the right to privacy – it is in the Constitution, but I have no privacy. Just because you are not a political activist or speaking out against a government agency, they are not looking into your life. I know that they are, who your friends are and what you are saying. I am not being paranoid – these are just the facts of life as they exist today.”

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has said in an interview with TV anchor Sean Hannity of Fox News that the source of his e-mail leaks were not the Russian government.

He said: “WE have said repeatedly over the last few months that our source is not the Russian Government nor is it a State party. Our reaction is no.

“If we look at the most recent statement by the US government on 29 December we had five different branches of government – the Treasury, the Department of Homeland Security, FBI, NSA, White House – presenting their accusations to underpin Obama’s throwing out of 35 Russian diplomats. What was missing from all those statements was the word ‘Wikileaks.’

On being asked how much President Barack Obama thought Russia was the goldmine  behind the Wikileaks organisation, this is how Mr Assange responded:

“He is acting like a lawyer. If you look at most of his statements, he doesn’t say that Wikileaks obtained its information from Russia, worked with Russia. From the statements that I’ve read he doesn’t say that Russia was trying to influence the election for Donald Trump.”

Excellent clarification about muddying the waters’if it is the Russians who looked like they did it.
